Okay…so we’ve waited a week to find out.  The results are finally in.  The numbers on the left are my January 1st measurements; the numbers on the  right are my measurement from today (January 8th).  Okay, here goes, let’s hope this is good:


In order to better understand where you are headed it often helps to see where you have been. Throughout this fitness journey I’ve been through a lot.  I went from my highest weight ever of 206lbs to my lowest weight in almost a decade of 166lbs.  I’ve grown stronger, improved my endurance, pushed through obstacles, and made quite a few mistakes.  Looking ahead I benefit from the knowledge that while I’ve grown a lot there is still a tremendous amount of room for improvement.

I have to begin training specifically for Ninja Warrior; I have to eat cleaner (less refined sugars and snacks); and I have to ramp up the intensity of my training sessions 100 percent!

But before we get into all that perhaps it would be helpful to see where I’ve been over the last year and a half.

I started out on February 8th, 2007 @ 206lbs and with a higher body fat percentage than I care to admit.

As disheartening as it was to see how I had let myself go, I was glad to have visual confirmation of my own failings when it came to living a healthy lifestyle.  How did I get there? For me it was two things- too much soda and NO portion control.  I look back and remember some meals where I had thirds on a full size 11 inch plate. (more…)

THANK YOU ALL!  Because of your kindness and generosity we are half way to our goal of raising $1,000 to help with the costs of Kane’s $4,000 treatment and surgery.  If you want to help us make it all the way to our goal (and possibly beyond) just click here for more information on how to help out.  We appreciate all that you guys and gals have done.  It is amazing watching the blogging community come together for our boy Kane.

Also, it is only a few more days until Kane comes home. (more…)

WE DID IT!  1,001 hits in a single day.  You Guys ARE AWESOME!  Now I will go back over the acronyms, pick a winner (with the help of my lovely assistant- my wife) and announce a winner sometime tomorrow.

Sleep well.  You worked hard today.
