Something new 4 me!

The last couple of times I have been up on the slopes I have had vision issues. Glasses and snow don’t mix too well because of fogging and crap sticking to the lens. I knew it was time to finally give in to trying contacts. Last week I made an appointment to be fitted for […]


Snoqualmie (At least Summit Central) pretty much sucks. That is my opinion, but I suspect some of my judgment is clouded by my day. Today I tried Snowboarding for the very first time. That part was cool, but it is really a difficult thing to re-learn all of the snow skills. Boarding is only like […]

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling

As my time in the 20/20 Lifestyles Program comes to an end, keeping my level of fitness high and continuing to make progress has become a much more important focus in my life. To that end, I have already made one commitment and I have begun to mold my continuing strategy for this summer. I have […]

BMI < 30!

Well, today it REALLY did happen! My official weight was 218.6. This puts my BMI at 29.6. A BMI of 30+ is generally considered obese. Over six months ago, when I started the 20/20 Lifestyles Program at the Pro Sports Club in Bellevue, Washington I had only the faith that this day would come. Finally […]

My O-Beast-uary

The day is getting closer and closer. The imminent demise of my obesity is nigh. I don’t know if it will happen this Friday or if I will have to wait until the end of the month to formally declare the expiration of my BMI > 30. When I started the 20/20 Lifestyles program offered […]


I was only supposed to ride about 30 miles today. That was my intention anyway. If I had been able to stop at about 30 I would feel not too bad. I ended up having to do just over 41 miles and I am beat. It is a good feeling, but after roughly 3 hours […]


You would think that after six months I would know that I ~have~ to plan my meals and I really shouldn’t try and wing it. I ~do~ know this but every now and again, I think that I can handle it. Today was one of those days where my plans didn’t agree with my intended […]

Ski Steven’s

Today was a pretty good day for skiing. I was hoping for a little more snow. If we don’t get some more soon the writing is clearly on the wall as far as the current base goes. Today even some of the Black runs were ski-able by me. Next week is Crystal Mountain again. Keep […]

Mostly Water

Judging by how my body held on to almost every drop of water that I ingested yesterday my guess is that the huge drop in weight was mostly related to water loss. That is a LOT of water. Off to the slopes!


Today I saw something that shocked me no end. Yesterday I officially hit 228. By the end of the day when I went to bed I showed about 225. This is normal for me because I tend to ingest a large amount of water. Today when I weighed myself ~after~ my ride this morning I […]
