In February of this year I decided enough was enough. The circular nature of fitness and seasonal adjustment needed to ramp up exercise was already old. Living in Minnesota means that six months of the year getting outside for exercise is a true chore. You either brave the elements or go to a gym, the [...]

I’m making pretty good headway on my goals this year overall. I can say that definitively because I’ve A.) purchased a house and b.) am slightly ahead of schedule on paying down my loans through this point in 2013.The other goal I have is not going as well. I’m not going to detail it here [...]
I started the year with some pretty clear goals for losing weight. Well, the first half of the year was pretty bad. It just kind of cruised by. I improved some of my habits but was never really able to get a rhythm going and despite my best efforts before the wedding, really was about [...]
After posting my Trek 1.5 to Craigslist for sale, no one really seemed to want it. I was kind of on the fence about selling it anyway as I knew when I did it might bug me later. It’s a really nice bike, I just wanted something with thicker tires because the roads around here [...]
I’ve been on a reading tear lately. Lots of travel.
A few weeks ago, I finished a book my mother purchased for me called “Cycling Home From Siberia” by Rob Lilwall. My fiance and her brother actually both read this before I did, as I was in the midst of some other business reading at the [...]
I’ve been stressed out lately. There are a lot of good reasons to be stressed as of now: planning a wedding and doing many of the activities associated, setting off a major launch at work, classes outside of work etc. Conversely, there’s NEVER any real reason to get that stressed about things, it’s really a [...]

Truth of the matter is that this topic hits home pretty hard. I don’t [...]
I’m getting up at 5:15am.
I’m counting calories on my phone.
I spend more time reading than watching television, by a long shot.
I am working 10-12 hours every day.
I occasionally worry about saying things that will be offensive to people. Completely not like me as a younger man.
I still play video games (ok I’ve got [...]
I haven’t been able to get back in shape this year. One of my goals was to get back to my target weight, around 165 lb. Right now I’m at about 180 lb. That’s a lot of extra weight to be lugging around. I work out pretty consistently, but not every day like I used [...]
Last weekend Teresa and I went to her parents house in Cloquet and spent some time up North.
On Saturday we went snowshoeing at Jay Cooke. The park is really close to Cloquet, so it’s a natural choice. We are going to go to quite a few more, we set a goal of going to all [...]
