Whooah, we’re half way there
Livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand and we’ll make it – I swear
Livin’ on a prayer

Holy crap. Not only am I way more than halfway to my 500 miles goal, but I’m almost halfway to my original goal of 750 which I revised in early May. Part of that is due to the improved weather, part due to some ridiculous walks and part due to my determination to beat my daily Jawbone goals. Competitive with myself? Never! But I love my data.

Here’s to an even more amazing Q3 and second half.


Go The Dist: Revised

I did it. I finally bit the bullet and revised my #GoTheDist goal for the year. Not because I’m less active than I thought, but because my initial goal was essentially a math error. I bike at roughly 3x the speed I walk, there was no way I was going to hit what was essentially […]


GTD 2013: Q1

It took a lot of editing and re-editing not to call it “Q1 down the drain”, but I know Robby would brain me if I did that. I went off track with #GoTheDist last year when the weather got better. I naturally switched to walking home more which hurt my GTD goal (750 miles on […]

Two years in…

Friday is my two-year Weight Watchers anniversary. Am I where I wanted to be? No, but I’m a lot closer to that than I was when I started in March 2009. Best of all, I recently recaptured that epiphany / drive I had when I first started and I’m really hoping to ride that to […]


so a week into 2012

and I’m mostly still on track. I had a slower start to exercise then I wanted because I started off the year sick. Still, I made myself go to the gym on both Sunday and Monday and even a short workout is better than none at all. So far, I’m in a good place for […]
