Failed but won’t fall
February 23, 2019
The pledge I made in my last post lasted only a couple hours until I both drank and ate chicken! Oy vey!
Spinning every weekday
February 3, 2019
I think I’ll ride every weekday at my local CYCLEBAR on Columbia Pike in South Arlington, Virginia.
I think I finally have a feasible fitness plan for 2019
January 8, 2019
You know what I deserve? To be healthy, to be limber, to be fit, to be strong, to be able to pop off the floor or out of a chair, and to weight 220lbs or so. That’s what I deserve.

Really smooth and cool and easy. Walked hills and took rights and lefts at as many hills as I could but it was a fun time! Second run it the rest of my life! Am I a runner yet?
My first run since I was sick in January 2017!
July 27, 2018
I took the first run of the rest of my life after being sick back in January 2017 this morning. Call my form Japanese Slow Jogging or Zombie Shuffle–the Cliff Young Ultra Shuffle?–but this is where it starts.
Consider your own fat mass in your kettlebell workouts
June 17, 2018

May 11, 2018
I have had this timer set up to prompt me to do 90-seconds of kettlebell swings every single hour of the day. I’ve been ignoring it for over 18-months but started doing it again today.
In praise of being dead last in a race
March 18, 2016
As I told you last week, last Saturday I ran the Four Courts Four Miler. I finished!
Three-hundred-and-twelve-pounds! When did that happen?
February 8, 2016
As I have begun to share over in shop healthy, cook healthy, eat healthy, be healthy, I really let myself go. I might have been wearing my fancy new Fitbit Surge but I haven’t been rising to any of all the occasions that have been offered to me as a result of being up to my […]
Giving 9Round Columbia Pike my money
February 2, 2016
Update: my local 9Round closed so I am no longer a member of 9Round. A brand new 9Round gym opened up in the Penrose Square neighborhood of South Arlington, and I popped on January 7 after eating tacos and drinking margaritas at my favorite local, Taqueria el Poblano, just to see who took over the […]
