Out with the old, in with the new

2011 has been laid to rest, and 2012 has begun. Overall, 2011 had some ups and downs, but in the end I was still on the right side of the semi-frozen Minnesota turf when the ball dropped last night. Here's a recap from 2011 for anyone that gives a rats hind end.. January - February: It was pretty dang cold, so we didn't do all that much.  I worked out, edited some videos and worked on some websites.. March:...

Weight Loss Check-In

While I full admit that I have not stuck to a diet plan 110% (after all, you get sick for a week, friends visit, you're our of town) hell, life happens.  I'm not going to be a total diet-nazi to myself, and annoy those I'm out with.. I decided to step on the good old Wii-Fit on Friday, and just see where I was at.. (since I run, bike, lift weights) and do more than just...

Spring is here, time to get outside and on track

Well, Most of the snow is about done and over with at least in my neck of the woods, and the weather is getting nicer.  For me, that means finally being able to get in some good workouts in the great outdoors.  Having spent a majority of the winter trying to jog outside a few days a week, I'm much happier not having to dodge snowbanks and slush. On Exercise: Over the weekend, I pulled out the old...

Friday Weigh In

So, after taking off Amateur week, and getting out 4 days this week either running outside or shoveling snow, I feel pretty good.  I didn't really vary from the meal plan (2 beers at company meeting Tuesday) but overall, pretty good. Started over with my Wii Fit person, with a new year, new goals and such, so hopefully from here is all downhill (for weight that is) - The new Wii Fit setup did tell me...

Fitness Schmitness

So, while thousands of Americans are spending this week trying to make good on their new years resolutions, I've spend the week doing exactly the opposite.  I've slacked on working out, I haven't really cared what I've eaten, since I didn't hit the grocery store this week, and due to Holiday parties, there seems to be a surplus of rum and beer, which I'm trying my hardest to get rid of. So sure, after touting my...

Friday Weigh In

OK, So I missed my weigh in today. I needed to be in the office today, so I wasn't able to do my regular Friday routine. I guess next week will be the next weigh in, since I'm a creature of habit. Personally, I get up on Friday, wake up, start my morning routine, use the same clothes etc and try and shoot for the same time each week as well, and try to...

Weekend Eating and Fitness

So, in terms of weekend eating goals, I flat out sucked, but that's nothing new for my weekends. Friday was take out from Yangs, Saturday was left over take out and BW3. Sunday, was waffles for breakfast, chips for lunch and tacos for supper. I did make the waffles and tacos, so they weren't terrible for you.. Granted, while all alone the meals were not terribly over proportioned or terribly bad,...

Friday Weigh In

Part of my weight loss plan is to include a weekly weigh in. While I haven't hit every Friday recently, I've been pretty good about it, and getting on today, even with the Thanksgiving feasts last week and lots of tasty leftovers, I was able to lose: - .9 lbs - .09% BMI. It's not a huge amount, but if it's something to maintain consistently over the next few months, I'll have no problem...

Fatty isn’t so fat anymore.

So, Since I don't get much opportunity to go out and try new places to eat, go fun places or do stuff [mainly because this time of the year it's cold out, and I am being more thrifty with my spending] I've decided to bore you all with more boring news on my fitness goals. While I do admit taking the week of Thanksgiving off to finish up some projects and get stuff done, I'm back on...

Fall Weight Loss Plan

OK, yes, I'm still on the 'Fatty needs to lose weight' warpath. I did a decent job this spring of losing a few percent of my BMI, a few pounds and adding some muscle in and overall getting in better shape with eating better and drinking less. Then summer came.. The start of the steam show season, being busy and having too many projects on deck that caused me to put my fitness aside. ...
