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 portion. [...]

How was your Thanksgiving? I hope all is well with you and yours. If you were careful what you ate yesterday, congratulations! If you weren't, it's OK. Thanksgiving is a very tough time to be careful with your diet. I use the word "diet" here to speak of diet in the broadest sense, as in "what [...]

Slowly but Surely

Progress continues slowly. Now down 3.2 pounds. Slow and steady wins the race (hopefully). A thought about eating out. Yesterday was one of my days off. I had lunch with my wife, Becky, at CPK near her work. I had Caesar salad with salmon. I also had a large (20 oz?) glass of draft beer (Atticus [...]

Onward and Upward…

OK, my weight this morning is back up, but I'm still 1.8 pounds down from my start, plus I'm losing weight at my planned rate. What was my undoing yesterday? Not sure, but I did have a beer late in the day. Beer is nice, but is just empty calories. Many believe that wine, however, has [...]

Making Progress

By | 2015-03-05T07:34:35+00:00 March 5th, 2015|Categories: Bob's Amazing Fitness Challenge|

Finally, I'm making progress! I'm down 2.8 pounds. This marks the third day in a row that I've lost weight. I really haven't been working very hard at it, which means that I could still be eating healthier. Breakfast was my normal Kashi Go Lean, this time with Chilean blueberries. They still aren't very ripe (too [...]

Paying the Piper…

No, I'm not paying my friend Mike Piper, I'm paying the guy that collects dues when you've screwed up. I went to St, Rocke in Hermosa last night with Becky to see Richie Furay (ex of Buffalo Springfield and Poco). Old folks' party. Great show, but I had a burger and fries along with five pints [...]
