Getting chunk

So now I’m going to try this approach over the weekend and during the week. Whenever I am wandering around or doing something, I have to have food in my hand. As long as I am not working out, I need to ...

Finding adventure

My latest fortune cookie said, “You will soon find new adventure in life.” Adventure always sounds good but really, it’s only when things go sideways does adventure happen. Adventure means ...

The Tamarack Crawl

Once I realized the top of my foot was bugging me, I knew I needed to lay off the running for a few days.  No need to get really hurt by turning something slightly annoying into a major catastrophe. So, ...

Hunger

For the past two days I have not been that hungry. I look at food and I feel like I need it but after a couple bites, it just doesn’t do anything for me. It’s rather annoying. I have experienced ...

The new vinyl sign is rigged up to the tire. I need to zip tie the top bar together, as it fell off along Carlsbad Village Drive. I knew I’d find it on the way back, as PVC pipe laying on the street ...

It looks like a wonderful morning to go for a run. 64 deg outside. Overcast to keep the sun away. What better thing to do then eat sidewalk? That is one thing I have noticed about running in the Five Finger ...

Calorie counting

The iPhone app myfitnesspal computes I need 2950 net calories per day to put on a pound a week in anticipation of trekking Antarctica. Yesterday, I consumed 2583 calories, not even hitting my target. And I ...
