Weigh and measure #1!

I don’t really think of this as the first weigh in since it’s only been a few days since the 1st of the year but this goes with being consistent. Weight: 220.2 (no change) Waist: 41.3 (0.9 of an inch down) Had I only stepped on the scale this morning I probably would be down […]

This is the start!

Like many other millions of people I climbed onto the scale this morning and saw what I kind of expected. However I also measured my waist to have another number to work for (some would argue this number is more important than the scale number). So without further ado here is where we find ourselves […]

Distance: 1.33 miles Time: 19:01 (This was Friday mornings workout!) Almost every day this week I had the thoughts of how much fun it would be to run but when the rubber met the road I found some reason to not get up a few minutes earlier. Usually when I have these constant thoughts of […]

Going to the doctor
