Long time without saying anything

So the holidays hit with a vengeance. Wonderful time with family and friends. I have started a new plan using the Nike+ fuel band. I have consistently hit my goal every day since starting. I have also lost about a pound a day. We will see how it goes over the coming weeks.

Early am hike at diamond head

Well I decided to take a small walk up to the top of diamond head in HI. Great view. Step climb and way to many people. But a good morning. 1.3 miles with 309 feet elevation change.


Well now for the real trick,eating good in paradise. It will be tough. I'll have to split everything!

Conference food

Well I'm at another work Confrence and the food here is fairly good. That is in was prepared well however the process of me choosing what sauces go with what foods and what item go on what salad has been a struggle. Plus for some reason there is the belief in the catering industry that everyone likes lemon in their water or ice tea. I hate both. I struggle to pick "good" foods and often there is not a lot of choice. It is a bit of a geek-fest so the food and drinks are high caffeine and bread for the most part. Oh well, small portions and water from a bottle is the choice I should make.

About to take to the air

I am very nervous about my family this upcoming week. I have to travel and that is not cool. I can do little but hope and pray for their safety while I'm away.


Today was sushi day. Love sushi but I hate the after sushi slow down. I eat way to much rice. I tried to tone the rice consumption down a bit today. Good friends and sushi does make for a great lunch.

Sandwich mania!

Sandwich lunches today. Why is the default for training classes a crappy salad and sandwiches that look incredible? I try and be good but no self control. On a new note. Time to start running again. I want to do a 5k soon and I have only run that distance once on a elliptical.

Late night hunger

So I sit in my office finishing up some work and all I can do is think of going for a snack. I hate that!

On the road again

Well I guess I should say in the air. I'm at another airport and my self control failed me. Sourdough bread bowl and broccoli soup. So good. Oh well I only ate some and not all.

Lunch appetizers

Today had a chance to eat at one of the man vs food restaurants. What fun but the appetizers were huge and after about half I was full. I still felt compelled to eat half of the fish taco ordered which was amazing. Overall decent lunch and half of everything eaten so good for me!

Bacon Sundae!

Really, a bacon Sundae. It had Carmel, Chocolate, Bacon and Ice Cream. Does it matter that I had a salad? I did share with 3 people.


Well seafood certainly is a great choice for dinner and it is better here in Alaska. Everything is from the Bering Sea. So cool. Seared Ahi Tuna and Salmon and Crab Legs! So great.

The beginning

So I wanted to try blogging a bit during my attempt at weight loss. As I publish this post I sit in a airport restaurant in what is quite possibly the worst environment for someone addicted to food to be in. I have free time and all my favorites around. No one here to "keep me honest" It is frustrating that there is so few "good food choices" yet and entire menu of the wrong things. I have a little bit of will power I send a third of the food back un-eaten, but I still make bad food choices. I guess it is salad (no dressing ) and the likes tonight for dinner. LAME! Travel is bad enough but it made worse when trying to eat healthy. Rant rant rant.
