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 [...]

Talk About "Falling Off the Wagon"

The news was bad this morning. I feared as much. I now weigh the same as I did four days ago when I started this journey! My weight loss trend line is going up, NOT down. Here's what I did that neither of us should be doing: I had a huge serving of Chinese takeout food [...]

It's Not Always Pretty

I gained back some of the weight I lost two days ago. It's a disappointment, but not a time for depression, binge eating, tears, etc. (not that I'm inclined to these). These minor setbacks are normal, perhaps unavoidable. There's not always an obvious cause. It is, however, a good time to reflect upon your (my) behavior [...]

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

I had to look it up. I knew the quote, but didn't know who said it. Appears to be from Lao Tzu. Here's my first step: day 1 was uneventful. I haven't started working out yet. I want to lose a bit more weight before I start there. I ate reasonably well, but not very well. [...]

The Truth Hurts, but that's OK

I weighed in just now. Pretty pathetic. Worse than I feared. I actually weigh more now than I did four years ago when I started working at The Bike Palace.  314.4 pounds! No point in crying over spilt milk, however. I found this interesting: I was looking forward to a fairly typical breakfast this morning, which [...]
