Weigh-In Wednesday November 14th, 2018: HELLO

By |

Remember a time when each Wednesday, I would harass all of my friends, family, and loose acquaintances for how much they weighed? Male or female, old and young, no one was spared from the potential public embarrassment that was this blog. Fun times right? I’ve decided that one of the things I wanted to get […]

Updated Recipe Index!

By |

Just a quick note on a change regarding the recipe section of the blog. In an effort to make finding a recipe for a particular meal, say breakfast for instance, I’ve added an indexing system so that it is a little bit easier to find what we have. Here’s the link! 

This system is based on […]

Zwift Workouts Are Kicking My Butt!

By |

Update on the Zwift Sessions! A couple of weeks ago I did a post about biking in secret in my basement using a system called Zwift. Zwift for those of you who haven’t read my last post, is an interactive virtual biking system that uses sensors on my actual road bike to estimate distance, speed, […]

Getting Zwift! My first steps into indoor bike training.

By |

Hey everyone! I have a confession. Ellie and I have been secretly working out pretty consistently for the past couple of weeks. She has been doing weekly sessions at Reform Fitness, which as our friends found out for Ellie’s birthday, is a super difficult workout. She’s also been using the elliptical quite a bit at […]

Running, Intervals, and Server Downtime!

By |

First! The server exploded, sorry about that. We had a prolonged downtime this week (the first since starting the blog up!) due to some hardware failures. Once the hardware was fixed, I had a heck of a time getting the settings working with our network again. Let me know if there are any lingering effects!

So, […]

Tri In The Buff 2018 Complete!

By |

Over the weekend I competed in my first triathlon of the season, Tri In The Buff! The race was a lot of fun, despite the 90+ degree weather. The swim was a little harder than I anticipated. Lake Erie has a bit more of a current and the waves were stronger than I expected. But […]

Synchronized Swimming Looks Impossible

By |

Last night Ellie and I were at the pool getting some laps in and working on my abysmal somersault. Like literally it took me over thirty minutes to be able to do one. While we were swimming there was a full team of synchronized swimmers working on learning an underwater maneuver. We couldn’t help but […]

Garmin Connect Revamped

By |

As i’m recently back on the wagon to this whole fitness thing, I’ve been using my trusty Garmin Forerunner 10. This watch has been by far the most indispensable pieces of training equipment I’ve had over the past 5 or more years. Thanks parents for the present!

Garmin watches sync up to a system called Garmin […]
