First “perfect” month in half a year!

A job well done for the month of July! Closed all three rings 31 days in a row. I wish I could say I succeeded in them being achieved by cycling 17 miles every time. Today was the exception because … Continue reading

Success! I now have 5000 miles logged on this particular type/brand of exercise bike which is what I’ve done about two thirds of my worldwide journey on. I didn’t stick around to see which number/target followed. I had plans, namely … Continue reading

As you can see from the virtual little prize above, I have closed all three of my rings 26 times in a row but the Challenge was to just pull it off within 31 days so I guess you’d get … Continue reading

Caloric goal achieved at gym!

It would be there sooner for a couple reasons that we all know, Covid-19 and not going to Planet Fatness. When I logged into the bike today, I was relieved that it set the next calorie goal to 200,000 since … Continue reading

Rather bummed that Beijing doesn’t have a city flag like all the other places I’m arriving at but I’ll take this little victory on my virtual trip around the world. I owe the more recent destination’s success to stepping up … Continue reading

Let’s see. If we divided those six weeks by the number of days it took to hit this landmark over the last 12 years…I’m averaging around 14 1/2 minutes of exercise a day when ideally it should be 30. Yeah, … Continue reading

Double Move hits 500!

Again, not bad that this took almost seven years to achieve as I go through exercising in fits and starts; I did pull off my second day in a row with the hopes this could lead to another month streak!

Tokyo achieved!

I’m pretty behind on achieving this destination as I slacked in February thanks to the Floor Stooges, recuperated a tad in March, then repeated the slacking in April for reasons I cannot remember as being valid. For May I’m really … Continue reading

Moscow Achieved…just great

Had I known Putin was going to invade Ukraine with so much certainty, I would have skipped Moscow as the next destination but it happened. It’s not the Russian people’s fault and they don’t deserve to be punished over something … Continue reading

One Thousand Days!

Not bad, it just took me about 6.75 years to do this and sadly I managed to get here without going to the gym every time. All those recent, stressful days involving the floor installation or when walking all over … Continue reading

First Perfect Month in a couple years

It has been a painful few days but I finally achieved a goal I’ve been dying (nearly) to do since the Pandemic kicked in. Thanks to a really long, brisk walk around downtown Austin on New Year’s Day, I got … Continue reading

This year is really going strong! I earned a perfect Exercise Week for the 50th time. Yeah, it’s not really that impressive. In many ways, all those little badges you can earn for achievements are the original NFTs!
