FIT CHALLENGE: Mohr's car accident doesn't derail weight-loss progress

This past week didn't go to well. First thing, I got sick Jan. 31, snowed in Feb. 1 and I finally worked out Feb. 2, Feb. 3 and Feb. 6. My workouts are getting better each day.

On Feb. 5, after my workout, I headed home to get ready for work. The roads were fine on the way home, but between getting ready for work and leaving, they got bad so I took my time getting to work ... but I didn't make it to work.

There is a bad curve in Castalia by Pat's Tavern, a local bar. I was going about 30-35 mph when I hit a ice patch covered by snow and I started to lose control of my truck.

As I was trying to get out of the skid, a car was coming in the other lane, so I decided to try and force my truck to the opposite side into an open field. That worked, but somehow I gained speed and went off the road and took out a telephone pole, which totaled my truck.

I was unharmed due to two very nice ladies who helped me. Now I have to look for a new car, which in a way is cool, but on the other hand not so much.

Besides that, my workouts are going great; everybody is 100 percent behind me, especially my parents who keep me in line if I fall out of place with my dieting, and I love them for that.

Hey Super Dave, maybe we should invest in a helmet for your rides to work.  Maybe go with something a bit slower.  Don't they sell electric scooters at Best Buy?  This reminds me of a joke.

A cop was driving down a country road when he saw a car in the ditch. He got out of his car to see if anyone was in the car. A blonde popped her head out the window and said "Thank god officer! I got in an accident!" The officer replied with "Well I can see that! Are you okay?" The blonde looked forward and said "Well yeah... I think so." Then the officer looked around and said "Miss.... your car looks like an elephant stepped on it. How did you crash?" The blonde looked at him and said "It was so strange. I was driving down the road and out of nowhere a tree jumped infront of me, so I swerved to the other side and another tree was in the way, so I swerved again, but another one was there again, so one last time I swerved to the other side, but the damn tree got me, and caused me to go in this ditch!" The officer started to laugh hard. "Whats so funny?" The blonde asked. The officer took a second to catch his breath then said "Miss, theres no trees on this road for miles ahead. That was your car air freshner swinging back and forth!"
