I don’t ever remember running a 5K.

I have walked 5Ks in the past. 

I have done miles runs, but I have never done 3.1 in one shot.

When you sit all day it’s tough to move. 

It seems counterintuitive that I sit all day long and when I go home I am still dog tired. 

I need to move more during the week.

I’ve failed at this more times than I care to recall. 

I’ve never stopped trying. 

I won’t quit trying. 

I have the soul of an athlete, but the body of a fat man.

I’m not a big fan of public swimming pools.  I grew up spoiled with my own pool. 

I can’t tell you the last time I was actually in a public pool, but I want to swim.

Ninety percent mental; 10 percent physical.

I remember hearing that day in and day out during football practice when I was in high school.

This is a difficult task. 

I’ve been working out a lot. 

I’ve been keeping track of every piece of food that goes into my mouth.

Another fantastic week has flown by.  

I had a few really hard workouts and some really great ones.  

I jogged a mile, slowly but I did it.  

I got out on the bike a couple of times as well.

It has been a great past week.  

I’ve worked out really hard. At least two workouts a day, a rest day Saturday, and Sunday I finished my first metric century of the year.

I am sad to see the summer end.  

School is back in session and days are getting shorter.  

Time is flying by.  Leaves will soon be changing and so am I.

Obesity is not a character flaw.  

It doesn’t mean you are lazy.

It doesn’t mean you don’t work hard.  

It doesn’t mean you have no will power or control.

It doesn’t mean you are a bad person.
