This past week I hit my weight goal of reaching 150 pounds after starting at 211 pounds on April 1, 2016. For the next part of my journey I want to focus not on losing weight but instead on building muscle. Even after losing over 60 pounds, I’m not totally happy with my overall build so IContinue reading “Visualizing weight loss”
It’s been one month since my last drone footage video. This is some of what I’ve captured after the last few weeks. I shot over the water next to the beach where I run on Sundays.

I didn’t beat myself this week, but it was my second best pace. Now it’sContinue reading “New 5K record and cycling for the view”
I published a 9to5Mac piece on New Year’s Day where I explained how Apple Watch pushed me to discover fitness and lose a lot of weight: Last New Year’s Day I decided to start eating healthy, exercising daily, and filling the Activity Rings on my Apple Watch as a way to get in shape. I broke my New Year’sContinue reading “On “Apple Watch, New Year’s resolutions, and losing 50 pounds””
