Still Alive….

Four months ago I started travelling again as part of my (then) new job. And here it is – the end of May. And I’m still doing it. And still digging it.

It *is* a bit of a grind. Trying to sleep Sunday nights. Getting to the airport for the first flight out Monday morning. Working late most nights. Getting to the airport on Thursday evening to make it back home for a day of work on Friday from Jones International HQ (i.e., the dining room table) and then for a weekend with the family. But, I count my blessings that I’m doing something I like doing. Not to mention I made a certain airline’s A list a couple weeks back, and Gold membership in a certain hotel chain’s program this week.

The only thing left is to find some motivation to exercise. I’ve found a hill to climb right outside the hotel. I try to get out a couple times a week. Some weeks I’m not very successful (like this week).  It’s not much – a mile up and a mile down. The views are tremendous.


I think for right now, racing and any kind of serious running is clearly out of the picture. After all, if I committed too much time to running, when would I have time to commit to my other hobby?


Seriously though, I’m down about 5 pounds over the last 12 weeks or so without exercising. I really need to commit to a regular exercise program this week. If for no other reason than to do something meaningful the evenings that I am away from home. Stay tuned.

Thanks for visiting. Hope things are well with all of you!

I Actually Jogged Today. Oh Deer!

No really.


I got out of the office a little early tonight (like 6:30), so I headed over to a park near my hotel for a 25 minute walk/jog. Got all 2 miles done.



That makes twice this week. (Last night’s exit at 9:30PM made it tough to get out for anything). I hope I’m not starting a bad habit here.

Also, I operated at a calorie deficit of 89 calories yesterday, and 130 calories today. Hunger. It’s been a long time since I’ve been hungry. Maybe that’s part of the problem……
