This was a good week for me. I lost 4 pounds! I told everyone I didn't give up and I promised to get back on track. Well I did it and I am so proud of myself.

This morning I checked the headlines and told my wife I'd spotted some good news. The Miami Heat lost!

My wife asked, "Are you still bearing a grudge?"

Well, duh. Go, Dallas!

Hello everyone. I lost 3 pounds this past week.

I was able to get to the gym as scheduled. Wednesday I had my son graduate to the next class, dentist appts and a talent show for my daughter to attend, so I had to go to a makeup spin class on Thursday night.

This past week was not a good one.

I work out back-to-back days May 23 and 24 and then had a two-day rest where I didn't do anything, except gain 2 pounds.

Hi readers, 

it's been awhile since I've blogged. I have encountered a little roadblock to my FIT Challenge.

Apparently I'm not as flexible as I was when I was younger.  I have a partial tear where my right shoulder, bicep and chest come together.

I used to actually kind of like Newt Gingrich. He was unafraid to offer new ideas, even controversial ones. He seemed genuinely interested in history. When I covered one of his speeches, I noticed that it was so well-organized and clear, it was easy to write it up for the newspaper.

If the name Evan Goretzki sounds somewhat familiar, you have either been involved with Perkins Athletics, the schools in general, or you remember the miraculous story of a 10-year-old boy who had a stroke in 2004.

This past week was all right. Monday the 16th was probably my worst day in the gym.

I just don't know what was wrong with me that day. It was probably stress from work, even my personal trainer Trevor Tieche noticed it.

I had a good week in the gym, but it didn’t show on the scale. I weighed in with zero loss or gain.

My weight stayed the same, but I lost inches. My BMI went down, so that means I have gained some muscle. Regardless, I want the scale to change, so I am hoping for a big week.

I've been immersing myself in the Civil War, and I just finished "Battle Cry of Freedom" by James McPherson.

Nothing new to report this week. I worked out about three times this past week not including a run around town. Most of my workouts are barefoot now but only when I work with personal Trevor Tieche.
