I Don't Have to be Good at it Anymore

This is not my first blog on this topic. But after a few years of back sliding, it is the first time I’m getting slapped in the face with it. Yesterday I bought (long overdue) underwear. So I pretty much never changed the size I was wearing... Read more
I Didn't

Well to answer the question left in the air from my last blog, I didn't. The goal was to start exersizing the next day, but I didn't. Sadly, when I got home from work that day I found our elder dog had put himself in his kennel for the last... Read more
Starting the Re-run

So I’ve been logging my food for a full week now. Over half of the days I have managed to stay within my goals (for the most part). I feel fairly successful on that, but I am a perfectionist so I will continue to dial it in. I’ve been on and off... Read more
A Different Satisfaction

It took a couple weeks to get that trainer up to the gym. It is a heavy, awkward piece of equipment. I disassembled all that I could of the frame and had a couple friends come over and haul it up there for us. Got it all back together and cleane... Read more

About a month after my last blog I twisted my knee at work. I felt a sharp pain in the moment but kinda hobbled around and walked it off. The pain came and went for awhile and I was icing and taking NSAIDs to reduce inflammation. I got it to a p... Read more

If you followed my original journey you are well aware of my focus on balanced nutrition and no gimmicks. At that time I had nothing but time to focus on meal planning and preparation, outlining and executing my workouts religiously. Fast-... Read more
A Perfect Storm

We are mostly settled into the new homestead. It’s literally a dream come true; out of town, close to town, naturally landscaped, forested surroundings. Beautiful. Every day on the drive home from work I literally thank the universe for our bles... Read more
I'm Still Here

Just a quick "hello" to let you all know I'm still around. I am caught up in the craziness of life at the moment but am thinking of you all. Details to come but the nutshell is: we are in the midst of selling our house, buying a house, a jo... Read more
The Techie-Geeky Aspect

So I was reading my friend Keakman’s blog tonight. It was a great story about her learning to drive a Model T. She drew a grand analogy about how tough those old cars were and how you also had to be tough and willing to go through those ruts ... Read more
Just a Small Investment

The last time I was here I had the good fortune of being laid off from my job about two months after embarking on my journey. Good fortune, you ask? Some fellow Sparkers I “ran” with back then may recall that I was extremely focused, and therefo... Read more

We returned from a week in Kauai Hawaii last night. We’d never been to any of the islands so when we were presented the opportunity we jumped on it. Asked which island we wanted to go to, we had no idea, but I knew I didn’t want to just laze ar... Read more

I’m behind on my commitment to blog every week so I’m going to attempt to squeeze in two this week. Eee. A day or two before our anniversary weekend I started coming down with the winter crud that keeps making its way around the dealership ... Read more
A Mediocre Start

Look, we all want this to be an easy task, but if it was we wouldn't be here in the first place. This process is going to leave us with results that are in direct correlation to the effort we put into it. Lay out your plans in detail. Visualize ... Read more
A Kick in the Seat, Please
Saturday, January 10, 2015      7 comments

I’m sitting down this morning to (again) get back on track with my blogging. It seems like just a couple weeks ago that I wrote about how important blogging was to my success and how I was going to get back on track with it. But apparently it w... Read more
Here I Go Again...

Since this is my first blog in over three years…aaaahhh, I’ll make it the down and dirty recap/update. When I last dropped off from Sparkland, I was half way through my second year of school which had been quite brutal in many ways. I comp... Read more
