    Well on my start to restart my program, I went to bed earlier and got up later getting 8 1/2 hours of sleep! I felt fantastic. I had an doctor appointment with my pulminologist, and I was hoping with my weigh loss, I would be getting off my CPAP. Well, my saturation numbers were better than last ... Read more

    Thanks to those who are concerned about me. I have been burning the candle at both ends and it has caught up with me. I am tired and am going to have to make myself slow down a bit. I think this high that I have been on the last 5-6 months with my weight loss gave me a false sense of power or som... Read more

    So this has been the summer of good and so-so - Exercise - good, Food - so/so. I probably gained a few pounds (less than 10) this summer. Summer cookouts and parties are winding down. Time to focus again. Started 2014 at a whopping 381. Started summer at 347. Last weight in a week ago... Read more

    Well I have come off a hard week. I worked too much, but still got my exercise in, but I have to admit some of my meals left a lot to be desired. My sleep suffered bad. And with the civil unrest we have in Ferguson, my days have really been busy. In my spare time, I did pull together a group fro... Read more

    So its been 3 months since I've had my son Christopher and I'm still trying to get back on track. I'm eating too many calories and the only workouts I'm getting is when I take my boys on a walk which is not every day. My doctor set a goal for me to lose 20 pounds by my next doctor appointmen...

I got the grass cut, and I cleaned the house for the wife so that she could leave earlier yesterday afternoon. And I have done three loads of laundry for her.... Read more

    Today I hit the 2000 mile mark! Three miles on the treadmill before teaching class:) Summer has been going so fast. I can't believe in two weeks I'll be back at school. For the first time in a very long time, maybe as long as I have been teaching, I really don't care about going back. I'm n... Read more

    As clarification to yesterday's blog. I spent about 45 minutes trying to figure out how to post pictures here, and failed. But a couple of years ago, when my health was failing, I was concerned what would happen to my wife when I died. I was really sure that my time was up. She is not a joiner, ... Read more

    Happy Monday. Today has been a great day so far. The scale was my friend for my weekly weigh-in. Of course, I was the one who was messing up my program. I was getting lax in my evening snacks. Lax, on measuring my food, and after measuring food for 4 days, and making sure night snacks were heal... Read more

    My daughters, my sister, a friend of mine and I participated in the Color Run yesterday in Sacramento. It was so, so much fun. My first 5K. The bad part is that even though we sprayed our shirts with vinegar, the color all washed... Read more
