All You Can Eat Sushi
2008-05-28 05:14:00
I took the kids to a new Sushi & Hibachi place tonight thinking it would be a fun thing to do to try something new, give my newly vegetarian daughter some new food options and maybe give me a chance to use the little Japanese I know. I was able to do this because ...
Bad Meal of the Day - Breakfast Cereal
2008-05-16 03:38:00
I don’t usually eat cereal for breakfast but the last couple of days were exceptions. I needed something fast, and having a bowl of cereal with skim milk sounded like it would hit the spot. How bad can a bowl of cereal be? How about 640 calories. How’s that, you ask? Well, first you ...

Bad Meal of the Day - McDonald?s Breakfast

photo credit: ThiagoMartins [I am writing this while stuck in O'Hare Airport in Chicago- my flight that was originally scheduled to leave at 8:00 is now delayed until 10:30. The joys of flying!] I’m still no expert at proper eating while traveling and today started in typical bad fashion - breakfast at McDonald’s. The ...

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 274 Today’s weight: 270 Week weight loss: 4 lbs Total weight lost: 25 lbs Feels good to see my weight chart move in the right direction again.

Since I have been as sick as a dog the last few days I thought I would post the puppy picture that has been requested a few times since I mentioned we got a new puppy. Maddie is a Chow Chow/Corgi mix and is about 11 months old. She has a really calm ...

Bad Meal of the Day - Subway Tuna Sub
2008-05-08 05:35:00
A comment on Mike’s blog got me thinking about some things I need to do differently, one of which is improve my logging of meals. I’m finding that really hard to do, but I know I need to do it. So to start with I am going to try to write about the worst meal ...

As a frequent drinker of Lipton Diet Green Iced Tea I was more than happy to receive an invitation from Lipton to promote their “Free Your Y” campaign around their new White Iced Tea. I have not yet tried the product, but as it is Lipton I am sure it is good. They will be ...

Arms of Jello
2008-05-06 04:47:00
I lifted weights this morning for the first time in almost two months and for only the second time since February 12th. Forcing myself to get up at 4:00am to workout wasn’t easy, but it is a habit I just have to get back into - I don’t have the luxury of being able ...

So I am ...

What Inspires You?
2008-04-24 05:52:00
I have been thinking a bit about inspiration tonight as I read through some of the recent blog comments. What I am realizing is I don’t know that I know what truly inspires me. Andrew wrote that I have inspired him: You can get back on the horse John. Back when you posted about running 2 miles ...
Are You Cheating The Runner in You?
2008-04-19 18:03:00
I took a walk this morning with our new puppy Maddie (I’ll have to write up a post about her later, she’s a real cutie!), an approximate 4 mile loop to a local lake and back, with on occasional jog here and there. I probably only jogged about a half mile out of the ...

Workout Season 3 Premier Review

I’m hooked on many of the shows on the Bravo network like Top Chef, Project Runway and Workout . The latter is just starting their third season and I watched the Premier episode “Hard Body… Thin Skin” tonight on my DVR. Workout documents the business of Sky Sport & Spa, an up-scale L.A. gym run ...

Back No Worse For The Wear
2008-04-09 03:37:00
Skiing was great, nice fluffy winter snow up at the highest altitudes although at the bottom things would get a little slushy towards the end of the day.  We had fresh powder almost every day we skied which was great.  I skied OK but I’m still too out of shape, particularly with the altitude, to ...

A Man?s Review of Skinny Songs
2008-03-19 00:01:00
When I was contacted last month with an offer to review Skinny Songs  I expressed interest, not because I was really interested in the songs, but because I was interested in the back-story of how Heidi Roizen, Founder and Lyricist of SkinnySongs, was using the Blogging community to get the word out about her new venture. I knew Heidi’s ...

A Good Start to the Week
2008-03-18 04:18:00
I kicked off the first day of my first full week back in the weight loss program saddle with a 30 minute cardio session before work. Since I usually leave for work before 6:00am that means I got up early and hit the treadmill for 30 minutes. That’s a good sign of my renewed committment. Another ...

Restarting the Weight Loss Program
2008-03-16 14:54:00
As you can see from the graph in the upper right corner of my website I’ve bounced back up again, but really it is not as bad as it could have been after taking effectively a month off.  First of all, we hosted a party yesterday where there was a lot of eating and drinking ...

South African Braaivleis
2008-02-18 11:37:00
Andrew recently wrote about his transition from “Mr. Meat” to a vegetarian, which has netted him great weight loss success. In his post he refers to South African boerewors rolls as the Food of the Gods, and I have a hard time arguing with him (despite a pretty unappetizing picture!) because I lived in ...

A Time For Action
2008-02-17 14:40:00
When in the darkest days of the American Revolution Thomas Paine wrote, “These are the times that try men’s souls,” he was not complaining about the conditions nor the dangers the patriots faced; he was issuing a call to action. After another 2 pound gain this week I am issuing a similar call to action, although nowhere ...

No More Rusty Dumbells

My three largest dumbells are 25, 35 and 45 pounds.  When I started this weight loss journey back in August I already had a small set of rarely used dumbells ranging in size from 5 to 25 pounds.  You will notice that the 25 pound one looks rusty.  That’s because it is.  I bought these ...
The Skinny on V8 Fusion

  I’ve posted a couple of times this month on V8, the tasty vegetable juice.  I take mine Spicy, which is loaded with taste.  But as it turns out, it’s also loaded with salt. A number of you suggested I try V8 Fusion .  I tasted V8 Splash a few years ago and didn’t like it but I ...
