Energy

I am so low on energy. Although I am a morning person (I think most of my energy is in the mornings), by the time I get home at 4:30 or so in the afternoon, I am tired. So much in fact that, whatever I want to do around the house, it darn well better...

WHAT WAS I THINKIN?!!!!!

So this weekend, with the wife out of town on a weekend business trip, I had control of the household (not that I dont when she is here).  So I set up "shop" on the couch. Blankies and pillows, a snack tray and the sort, and remotes aimed and...

312!

312 people! I am officially 312 lbs, which means I have shed 11 pounds in about a months time. I am happy about this but know also this is just the start. Consistency over speed will win this race! The "official" measure-in will be this evening....

Monday Monday, Mundane Monday lol

Wow, it's been a whole week since my last entry. Naughty me.  So lemme give a summary, review the highlights and lowlights of the last week. For the weekday efforts, I think I did very well. It is all kind of a blur to me, but ultimately I did...

Proof, PROOF of Progress I SAY!

Now THAT was a workout!

I hit the treadmill for 20 minutes (2 minutes walking, one minute run, with a 1.5 minute run in there to test things). After the treadmill, I hit the bike for 10 minutes (a different kind of stationary bike). I feel the results of these things,...

Today is a day of frustration and testing!

ok, so this is a bit of a vent, ranting about my current frustrations with this weight and exercise thing.  Like some kid waking up at 5 am Christmas morning anticipating what's under the tree, I woke up this morning at 5:30 and weighed myself.  ...

No Tea.... so this is a test

I ran out of tea at work yesterday. And this morning, I was in such a rush to get out the door and off to work, I forgot to bring more tea. Sunnuvagun! So here I am at work, with nothing to drink for the whole day.... well, except water.  I called...

Workout today

I worked out a good 30 minutes in the gym today at lunch time. I am highly self conscious and would prefer no one be around as I am working out. I have been nearly OCD about this too, believe me. But I have also been trying to work through it, the...

Monday morning

It is Monday morning, thankfully (it is rare that I am thankful for a Monday, so take it for the gravity in which it is offered). It was quite the crazy weekend, as my other blog post will show. But I am rather pleased that despite all that...

WW Smart Ones

Just finished my work out (not a bad one today, had a revelation I will reveal later... totally positive and puts a little sping in my step). I took the treadmill for 20 minutes (plus a 5 minute cool down period). That's all, no running and what not...

My routine this week: The good, the bad and the ugly

Today marks the fifth day that I am working hard at transitioning to being more healthy. I have, in this week, tried to use the gym at lunchtime, getting in a 15-25 minute workout be it the tradmill or the bike. After that, I go get something to eat....

Weight Watchers: Omelet

This morning I tried the WW Three-Cheese omelet. It looked like an omelet, and came with some potatoes on the side (the picture shows them as being IN the omelet, of which I wasn't fond of but thats neither here nor there). I followed the...
