Motivation

Motivation is the activation or energization of goal-oriented behavior. Motivation is said to be intrinsic or extrinsic. The term is generally used for humans but, theoretically, it can also be used to describe the causes for animal behavior as well. This article refers to human motivation.

Woohoo?

Monday, Monday, Monday… You know me, not a huge fan of this first day of the week, but as we look at it, I’m in the basement with Spritz, pounding away. It’s been a while since I’ve been constant on the bike and that has to change. While I’m not packing on the pounds, I don’t feel at my best....

Wow…

Ok, so it’s been a while since the last post. Thursday just to be clear. Before you get up in arms I will plead that I have been extremely busy since Friday at 5:00pm. Busy? Yes, busy. Very, very busy. Friday 530pm – Visit a condo. Not ‘really’ looking to buy, just looking to see what’s out there in order...

TGI almost Friday!!

Ok, so I’m giving Dr. Spin’s out of the saddle riding another shot. I extended the low intensity section and shortened the high intensity section in the hopes that I could work my way up to the requirements. No such luck. 2 minutes of high intensity and I had 0, control of the heart rate. Yup, it got a little...

Post #100

Well Kiddies, that was tough. I’m not too proud to admit it. I got home tonight, had a nice dinner (consisting of chicken fingers, beans and pasta) and knocked of an episode in the 24 backlog and the Fringe season première. By the way, if you haven’t seen Fringe yet, stop what you are doing, run out to Futureshop and...

What the Deuce

I have no idea what this funk is Ladies and Gentlemen, but it is seriously starting to disturb my calm. Is it a combo of my excess from the weekend or my body telling me I’m overdoing it? I’m thinking it’s not the first one as I was feeling this way before the weekend, but folks will rationalize any which...

It is SOOOOOO LATE!!!

Sooooo… Tonight was a short spin. Actually I’m lucky there was any spinning at all. We (Kris, Steve and I) met up with Ace, Lori, Katherine, Joanna and Jay at a very cool Irish pub called the Ceili Cottage (http://www.ceilicottage.com/). Very small, but wow was the food amazing. I had fresh bread with homemade butter (pipe down, I know I...

Easter Monday

I think everyone should get Easter Monday off, not just the Government suits and school folks. While the lack of traffic was enjoyable, I would have rather been outside working on my tan… OK. Complaining aside, today is Day One of Phase Two (please notice the impressive capitals on the Day and Phase) from Dr. Spin. This glorious day involves...
