Illness Sucks

Missed a couple of days due to feeling like garbage. Lost the entirety of Tuesday – slept the whole day away – then came in late on Wednesday, then went home at the regular time and crashed straight away. Finally starting to feel normal again but still … blech.

Fallen Off the (Fitness) Wagon

Man, I have done a terrible job of eating right and exercising over the last month or so. Which means I absolutely have to crawl back onto that wagon tomorrow. I’ve been meaning to actually getup early and take the bike over to the river to do 20 miles or so before I drag my carcass into […]

Day One of Standing Desk

Purchased a pair of cardboard standing desks that arrived today. Figured I’d spend $50 now just to see if I like it. If I do, then I’ll look into dropping the $250+ for the much fancier and stable metal one. Definitely had to buy the pad to stand on, though. Yowch.

Beautiful Day

Today was fricking perfect. Mid to upper 80s, light breeze, sunny … yeah. I took the bike to the river even though I rode it yesterday and the day before. Would have gone for extra distance but one of my cleats was coming loose and I left the Allen wrench at the office…

Biking & Fitness

Been a while since I actually commented on this. Overall, I haven’t lost any progress, really, although I have kind of stalled out at my current weight (which right now, is ~230-235, depending on the day, what I’ve eaten, whether I’ve biked, etc.) I did kind of spike back up to around 240 for a […]

Dentist Now A Necessity

Broken tooth starting to really be irritating. Hasn’t reached perma-pain levels, but is definitely inching up that scale. Based on my memories from the previous visit, I expect when I go, they’ll give a prescription for some antibiotics to reduce the pain and gunk causing the pain, then have me come back a week later. […]

50-miles

Success. Although man, I’m paying for it now. Had a strong wind in my face for more than half the trip and I ended up so exhausted at the end that I walked the final mile in an attempt to avoid the wind issue and to loosen up the kinks in my leg muscles. Thoroughly […]

Biking

Was mid-80s on Saturday, so I broke out the bike and tried a new route. Managed a whopping 44-miles. There’s clearly been a big fitness improvement on my end because I didn’t start to really suck wind until 2/3 of the way in, around mile 27 or 28. The next time I try this route […]

Sunday … Biking?

Sunday is the 5th of February and according to the forecast, it should be mid- to high-60s … so I’m thinking about trying hit the bike trails. Tuesday is supposed to be even better – in the 70s – so I might try to do morning cardio on the bike.

2017

One resolution: get in shape. I’ve already gotten a nice good headstart with my current level of weight loss (which I’ve completely gone off the rails today, what with pizza and cheesy bread and a banana split from Braum’s) but I’m planning on resuming the gym visits starting Monday a.m. I want to be around […]
