Since I've moved to karate and weight lifting lately, I've sort of neglected the running. I know I've been trying to get up early in the morning to run but I've not been committed enough to actually do it lately. Guess that needs to change. I've committed to doing two 5K events over the next … Continue reading Day 304… Gotta Get Back To Running
TL;DR version: I am changing everything. Diet, exercise, volume of workouts, etc. Things aren't working as intended, so I need to make them work. I suppose that change is normal for these type of life altering decisions. You can't just make one decision or choice and stick with it forever.

When I was at the doctor, he had told me that I could continue to lift but that I shouldn't increase the weight. … Continue reading Day 155… Da Gym Is Dat Way
So I decided to add something to the side of my blog here that keeps track of some "milestones" including how many miles I've walked, how many pounds I've lifted and (of course) how much weight I've lost. I may add other things to it, but we'll see. It sure involves a lot of math! … Continue reading Milestones
