Should it stay or should it go?

I’m really probably writing this for myself more than anything, but the thought has crept into my mind on whether I should keep this site/blog/big pile of dust or if I should just let it settle into the nether. It costs me slightly less than $100 each year to have this site and domain and […]

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 […]

Chasing Onederland 2019!

The past two years at least, I’ve set the goal of getting my weight down below 200. I’ve failed those past two years, thus why this is being posted again (I think I posted it last year but it may have been purged). 2019 will be the year that this changes and I’m posting this […]

Just go see Aquaman!

Ignore the critics. Don’t listen to the naysayers. Put your money down and go and be prepared to be entertained for almost two and a half hours. I’ve seen headlines flit across my online vision that have said “Aquaman didn’t tie things into Justice League” (FWIW…it did…in two places. I didn’t dwell on it a […]

Wanting to Write

For some reason, I’m not sure why, these last couple of weeks I’ve had the itch to write something. Mainly fiction. I’ve had ideas pop-up here and there that are the starts of what might be a quick finish or something that never goes beyond that thought stage but it has given me pause to […]

Are you satisfied

I was listening to the Work Play Love podcast this week and there was a question that Jesse and Lauren were answering about a highly driven athlete and how despite setting new PRs they thought they could always do better and didn’t enjoy their accomplishments. The response that Lauren gave really hit home with me.  […]

Not far and not fast

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 […]

A round of 8

8 rounds of the following: 2 hand kettlebell swing x 10 (20 lbs) Push-up x 8 Deadlift x 8 (35 lbs) This took me about 12 minutes to finish. Not really pushing it as I want to ease into things, but I was also huffing and puffing pretty good at the end. The thing I’ve […]
