HealthyWage Challenge Day 28 (Weekly Pics in Post)

Weight 155.6 lbs                                         Above are my weekly pictures. The week to week difference is not very noticeable, but I can see some difference in my abs from the starting picture to the current picture. It would be nice say a cool rhyme like “Day 28 and I’m feeling great”, but that wouldn’t be right. It’s day 28, and I am glad that my progress is moving slowly but surely (despite the junk food that I eat). However, I believe it...

HealthyWage Challenge Day 25

Weight 155.6 lbs I ran 13 miles today. The sidewalk monster tried to get me with a toenail tackle. I broke the tackle, but I near broke my toe also.  I think I just jammed it pretty bad. The top of it is bruised, but I can still walk around alright, and I finished my run. Join me in the HealthyWager! This challenge lets you make a personal weight loss bet.

HealthyWage Challenge Day 24

Weight 156 lbs. I only ran 6 miles today. I’m feeling a bit sore and worn out, but I want to keep pushing hard before my cookout this weekend and my short vacation in the near future. I wonder about the whole calories in vs. calories out debate. Is my body clinging to calories now because I am exercising so much and it is adapting, or will I need to watch what I eat more carefully. This weekend’s cookout might be a good litmus test. If I eat a lot and I don’t gain weight, or I lose weight, it might...

Running Episode 2

Another interesting event happened on my run today. I was jogging today at a slow speed as normal (although I tend to pick up the pace on hills). Right before a hill, I pass a guy that was walking at casual speed. I run up the hill and around a little cul-de-sac type of thing. I never considered the cul-de-sac to be much distance; I just add it on as garbage time or a few extra steps. Anyway, I come out of the cul-de-sac and the guy I just passed has caught up to me. As I look back in surprise,...

HealthyWage Challenge Day 23

Weight 155.2 lbs I lost another fraction of a pound; every bit counts. I ran 12 miles today, but I broke it into QTY 2 ea. 6 mile runs. I thought that would make it a little bit easier on my body. It is a strategy that has worked successfully for me before when increasing my mileage. The downfall is that it really tests your discipline; it can be hard to go for a second run when you are already tired. I guess I have to trick myself into loving it. Join me in the HealthyWager! This challenge lets you...

HealthyWage Challenge Day 22

Weight 155.6 lbs. I finally lost another pound after back tracking a little bit. I think this is my new lowest weight of the challenge. I ran 8 miles today and it was pretty hot. The heat hit me as soon as walked out the door; then, I settled in until I was about halfway into my run. At that point it felt like I was pouring sweat like a faucet. Also, I need to start doing my strength building before the runs. I don’t have any energy after if I run a longer distance. Join me in the HealthyWager! This...

HealthyWage Challenge Day 9

It was a successful  day in my HealthyWager quest. I  am down to 159.8 lbs for a total weight loss of 5.6 lbs. If I maintain that weight through the weekend; then, I will also have met my goal for this week which was to weigh 160 lbs or less next Monday. I stepped the run up 2.5 miles from my previous longest run. Today I ran 54  minutes, for a total of 6.5 miles. Today’s Exercise: The same Anderson Ab workout that I’ve been doing. You can check out the post from Day 2 if you aren’t familiar with it. 6.5 mile run QTY 50 ea. Boxing Crunches (see Day 3 for...

Habitat of Creation

You can lie gently on top of your bed covers, And hope that you don’t mess them up. Every night you will sleep in fear Worrying about restricting your motions as you sleep, If you sleep. And Every morning, Your success will be simply defined by smoothing your lightly wrinkled sheets. Or, you can throw the sheets off of the bed, Or sleep under them. Every night, not worried about the future, You can roll around free Immersed in your dreams. Every morning, you will wake up with a greater Opportunity for Success. You can create a New bed. Create a habitat of creation.  ...
