TURKEY DRIPPING STEW
Sunday, January 06, 2013      5 comments

Let me be up front about this. This ain't diet food! When the wind is howling and the temperature's dropping, wrap yourself around a bowl of this, and all will be all right with the world! First, you need to roast a small to medium turkey. ... Read more
WEIRD HAIR GROWING TRICKS!
Tuesday, December 04, 2012      9 comments

My beard grows slow, but thick. Not so with the hair on my head! Ever since I got the implant, I have been shaving the sides of my head, so the magnet can stick better. I shaved my head Sunday, but just turning my head today (Tuesday) caused the... Read more
Solitary Thanksgiving
Friday, November 23, 2012      13 comments

I had planned on spending Thanksgiving with my brother, but he works for the railroad, and he got called up for a trip to Yuma on Thursday morning. We will do the feast on Saturday instead. So, kind of at loose ends, did a 6 mile walk in the m... Read more

Well, in today's news, I finally got my implant activated, and had the first of many processor programming sessions. I had my head direct wired to a programming computer. I was fairly pessimistic about immediate results. The cyber docs lead you ... Read more
MONDAY UPDATE
Tuesday, October 23, 2012      7 comments

Kinda slacked on the workout today, 77 minutes and 613 calories. I'm not getting home from work until about 4, and even if I change immediately and get back out the door, sunset is getting earlier. The great state of Arizona does not believe in ... Read more
TYPE "A" PERSONALITY?
Saturday, October 20, 2012      5 comments

OK, time to 'fess up. I AM AN OVERACHIEVER! I need to develop a 10 step plan! My personal cross to bear is blowing my goals out of the water. If I set myself a goal, that little voice in my head says "You can do better than that", and then I set... Read more
KEEPIN' ON THE PATH
Tuesday, October 16, 2012      14 comments

Went for my normal 6 mile walk after work last night, pretty much slacked off over the weekend to keep my fitness minutes down. Trying to bust a plateau that has been plaguing me for the last month. Did the first 3 miles walking in zone 2, burne... Read more
Wednesday - mileage corrections
Wednesday, October 03, 2012      5 comments

For the last 3 or 4 months, I have been doing a lot of walking. I mapped a lot of different routes on the fitness tracker page, and I called these my "known distance" routes. That got boring, walking the same route all the time, so I recently st... Read more
LAZY DAY WORKOUT - with pretty cool calorie burn!
Monday, October 01, 2012      6 comments

OK, I was scheduled for a "hard day" workout this morning, but the weather was so cool and beautiful this morning that I had no desire to push into the higher heart rate zones, and get all hot and sweaty. My normal 6.28 mile route is getting a l... Read more
TODAY'S WINNING NUMBERS!
Friday, September 28, 2012      6 comments

No, this ain't the lotto! Yesterday, I did a "recovery day", and kept my heartrate solidly in Zone 1 for the first mile and a half, and in Zone 2 for the remaining four and a half. The only hard part about this was walking slowly enough to keep ... Read more

Monday, September 24, 2012      5 comments

Kinda sorta against doc orders, but I had to get some exercise time today. Kept it real low key and moderate. Got out of the house about quarter after five this morning, still dark, still cool. I was aiming to keep my heartrate between 110 and 1... Read more
EAR SURGERY UPDATE
Sunday, September 23, 2012      14 comments

OK, I have the outer bandages off now. Thankfully, looks like they didn't stitch it up, just taped up with steri-strips, that I have to leave on for 8 - 12 days. There is a slight bulge behind my ear, and the ear sticks out a little more than th... Read more
Home from the hospital....
Thursday, September 20, 2012      13 comments

First, I want to thank all my Sparkster friends for all the sparkgoodies and good wishes! Living alone, it is nice to know somebody cares. They put me under at about 7:30 this morning, and I woke up about 11. Having a lot of pain, but dug into m... Read more
HEART RATE MONITORS - A SECOND LOOK
Friday, September 14, 2012      3 comments

OK, over the last 2 weeks or so, I have tried out 3 different heart monitors, and blogged about the first impressions. After I've used each one for several days, here is a better idea of the qualities and limitations of each one. SPORTLINE ... Read more
