  • Donut or no Donut

    Saturday morning came to0 bright and early for me, so I sleep in a little instead of riding out to the beginning of the Donut Ride. Once I finally rolled out of bed I couldn’t decided whether to ride of get a perm. But finally I got dressed and headed down the hill. I figured […]

  • 20 Pounds Lost!

    This is a milestone, hopefully the first of more—I’m down 20 pounds from my highest weight. There’s still a long ways to go (I now weigh 290 pounds), but the trend is definitely positive. I have been dieting (see my last blog entry), to which I can give all the credit to for my recent […]

  • Off the Front/Reboot

Over the last week or so I’ve been getting back on the bike, both on the road and on the stationery bike. I’ve also decided to rework my diet, starting today. Brian Frank, Hammer […]

  • Workout Playlist

    There’s been no groundswell of demand for my workout playlist, but I thought I’d share it anyway! The songs I selected are generally upbeat (as much as I love them, I had to take out the Joe Jackson tunes for being too pensive). I’d didn’t agonize over this list. These are just songs that I […]

  • Christmas Takes its Toll

    Finally Christmas has gotten to me. The combination of bagels, sugared pecans, and incredible toffee has gotten to my waistline. I’ve gained back four pounds! This morning I hit the stationary bike for an hour. It was brutal. I wanted to quit 10 minutes in, and this time I wasn’t doing intervals. I finished the […]

  • Longer and Slower

    It’d been four days since I’d ridden a bike, and I wasn’t happy about it. Between a Christmas work crunch and camping with the Scouts, I couldn’t get my rides in. Oddly enough, after getting back from a relatively sedentary weekend camping trip, both my weight and fat percentage were down. I was planning to […]

  • Objective Measurement

    I bought a CatEye Velo 5 computer recently and installed it on my stationary bike. This will give me a more objective measurement of my workouts. It’s the most basic model that CatEye makes (available at The Bike Palace for $19.95 (don’t forget the 20% discount for Peninsula Cycle Club members). Other versions are wireless […]

  • So Far So Good

    It’s only four days into my renewed efforts to get fit. I managed to get past Thanksgiving and still lose weight. Certainly I’m doing better than last year! I’ve been keeping my meals reasonable. By no means have they been perfect. However, I’ve been eating less and eating better. I still have dessert, but a smaller […]
