I was just going through the motions. I still came here everyday (almost). I still kept an eye on my calories (almost). I still went to the gym with regularity (almost). Are you beginning to see a pattern here? The difference betwee... Read more

Yesterday was my birthday. Number 43 to be exact. I went out to dinner and a movie with my wife. Probably the same thing I did last year. There WAS one difference. Last May I joined SparkPeople. Last September, I quit smoking. Last Oc... Read more

It was 5:30 am when the alarm went off. I was scheduled to be in work at 8 am today and there was no way I was going to be able to make the 7:30 group run for those of us training for the Philadelphia Broad Street Run in May. The Ea... Read more

Wednesday, December 09, 2009      0 comments

I love the sense of accomplishment I get when I complete a run or finish my cardio or walk out of the gym... I hate that I always 'feel' my body. It seems to talk to me now - more than it ever has before. "PLEASE don't go on that run", "P... Read more

So, I'm not sure if I am sick or perhaps I am overdoing it. I can not get warm tonight so I have a fleece pullover on and a blanket wrapped around me. It BETTER not be the flu! After all, I was ADAMANT about not taking the flu vaccine (I'... Read more
