  • Day 32 of fitness plan

    Looks like I’m going to have to repeat week three of the pushup plan. I just can’t seem to make it through the whole workout. Weight:280.0 pounds Exercise:Week 3 Day 2 of the hundredpushups.com plan. 5 sets (10,12,3,4,4) Yesterday’s water:One 20-ounce bottles of tap water.

  • Day 31 of fitness plan

    I’ve made it through a full-month of exercising every day and I’m feeling like I’m in better shape. Now, I’m just waiting for the weight to start dropping off as I continue to be faithful to my diet. Weight:282.0 pounds Exercise:Week 5 Day 2 of couch-to-5k plan. On the treadmill, I did a 5 minute […]

  • Day 30 of fitness plan

    Michelle and I went to a Christmas party yesterday at Brian and Angela Morris’s house. We had a good time, and I ate lots of good stuff there. I didn’t even attempt to count my Weight Watchers points. Then we went to Lola’s 2nd birthday party at Brandon and Emily’s house and I had cake […]

  • Day 29 of fitness plan

    We went to Olive Garden last night to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday, which means I had to rely on my activity points to stay within my daily Weight Watchers limit of 39 points. Linguine ala marinara is on their Garden Fare list but it was still 11 points. I did my progress test for the […]

  • Day 28 of fitness plan

    Six days in a row that I haven’t cheated on my diet. Michelle and I went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner up in Liberty after Jake’s basketball game last night, and I was sorely tempted to get a big ol’ prime rib and mashed potatoes, but I was a good boy. I settled for chicken […]

  • Day 27 of fitness plan

    Five days in a row that I haven’t cheated on my diet, but it appears that the scale is crap. I guess the best I can hope for from the scale is to notice a general trend, but I can’t rely on it for exactitude. I did really well with push-ups this morning. I think […]

  • Day 26 of fitness plan

    I’ve stuck to Weight Watchers four days in a row now, and either the scale is broken, or I’m losing a lot of weight fast. I’m betting the scale just sucks. It’s a 10-year-old digital bathroom scale in which I haven’t changed the battery in ages, but until its proven one way or the other, […]

  • Day 25 of fitness plan

    Three days in a row for sticking to Weight Watchers. I seem to be doing better with push-ups too. To heck with my previous theory about popping up at the end. The trick seems to be to do them as quickly as possible. That doesn’t mean only go half-way down like kids seem to do […]

  • Day 24 of fitness plan

    Woohoo, I’ve stuck to my diet two days in a row now, and my weight actually went down instead of up. Go figure. Weight:282.0 pounds Exercise:Week 4 Day 2 of the couch-to-5k plan Yesterday’s water:Two 1-liter bottles of tap water. Yesterday’s WW points:39 (40 food points – 1 activity points)

  • Day 23 of fitness plan

    I actually stuck to my diet yesterday. I’m allowed 40 points per day on Weight Watchers, and I only used 36. I ate 40 points worth of food, but I earned 4 points for running. 18 points was for two and a half peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that I had as a late-night snack. […]
