Food tracking / application integration awesomeness

I have mentioned in past posts that for food tracking, I use Spark People. I am still technically a sparker – I track my measurements and weight progress in there. My history is with spark people and until there is a way to migrate information from SP to somewhere else, I reckon spark people owns [...]

Fancy pants power walker

So we’ve returned to standard time. Thank God. My body knows it’s coming and starts acting like it well before we actually change the clocks. For the last month, I’ve been getting tired later and wanted to sleep in. Last night, I went to bed at 10:00 and slept until 5:00. I awoke bright eyed [...]

Daily Exercise Log

I’ve abandoned endomondo for the time being. The calories burned was for whatever reason, waaay to much. When I first started using the program it was pretty accurate but all of a sudden it started to almost double my calories burned. SO, now I’m on to RunKeeper – the calories burned are much more logical. [...]

Bad ideas and more lessons learned

Talk about screwing up a good thing. I totally wasted this month with my ‘plan’ to only do the c25k program. What an idiot. So basically, I’ve been gaining and losing this pesky 4 pounds all month and I’m pretty sure it’s because my exercise routine is shot to shit. I have to get back [...]

Real weight-loss vs. fake weight-loss

People with weight problems know how to lose weight. It might sound strange. If they know how to lose weight then why don’t they? I don’t flippin’ know. Why didn’t I lose weight when I was slowly creeping into the 300′s? I don’t flippin’ know. I didn’t want to? That’s not true. I didn’t want [...]

The amazing body

It was my thought that if I didn’t go out and do something exercizey every day that I would end up quitting. I was probably right. I think ya really have to build up momentum and to do that, ya have to commit to the process. When I did the couch to 5 K program [...]

Couch to 5K program

First of all, 5K = 3.11 miles.

The couch to 5K program was developed by Cool Running. It is the…

“Beginner’s running schedule that has helped thousands of new runners get off the couch and onto the roads, running 3 miles in just two months.” (Cool Running)

I gave this program a try back during [...]

Lessons learned

Back in January when I started walking, I made it my business to go out almost every day. It was like, my mission. I felt like if I didn’t go out every day, or almost every day that I would quit. I was always a bit of a quitter – especially when things stopped being [...]


Looks like I have the most common type of arthritis: osteoarthritis. Here’s a picture of the horn growing out of a disk on the right side of my lower spine.

big ole’ horn-o-arthritis

I have some more on my upper back and my tailbone is almost fused with my lowest disk. My neck is [...]


There are a few apps that do the same thing but Endomondo was my first and I’m sticking with it. I’ve downloaded RunKeeper and other similar apps to my phone but I’m afraid to try them. All of my stats are on Endomondo so that’s what I’m sticking to. Below you’ll see my history. Give [...]
