In less than a few months' time, I will be sitting with Ellie and our friend Jen in the hot springs of Iceland. While that sounds amazing, and I am looking forward to it, I have quite the beer belly going that promptly needs to be addressed. Aside from diet and exercise in general, the [...]
A couple of months ago I started using an indoor cycling program called Zwift. For the full review of my setup and my initial impression, here's the post. I took a little bit of break at the start of December, but since the New Year I am back in the saddle, literally.
Week 1 Success, on [...]
With the new year, my number one resolution is to put real time and energy into the blog again. To do this, it really starts with the Weigh-In Wednesday posts. The whole point of this blog was accountability from the very beginning, and not doing the weigh-in post is not a very good way to [...]
I am going to be kind, and not post the aftermath of Thanksgiving for everyone who submitted this week. Happy Holidays!
Better get moving for next week though, because I'm going to put you all on blast 🙂
On Thanksgiving, Ellie, Jeff, Adrienne and myself woke up to a brisk Baltimore morning and made our way over to the Waverly YMCA for a good ole' fashioned turkey trot! None of us have been running, so expectations were low, but we had a blast!
Before the race, we did a quick tour of the inside [...]
Remember a time when each Wednesday, I would harass all of my friends, family, and loose acquaintances for how much they weighed?

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 [...]
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, [...]
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 [...]
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!
