10,000 steps a day

That's what they say you should be walking.

It'd be a miracle if I see 10% of that, so I bought a pedometer to find out.

This combined with my 1200-1500 calorie a day diet should get me close to bikini weight by Easter, I'm hoping at least.

Update: At bedtime I checked the pedometer and it read roughly 5,000 steps. This was after purposefully walking more than I normally would (like parking in the farthest spot, etc.)

No wonder I've not dropped weight like I thought I would. I gotta get movin!

Update 2: I just did a little math with my pedometer, and 10,000 of my steps is equal to about 4.5 miles. I went for a walk this morning, and my pedometer now reads 4102 (3671 of which was aerobic). I need to find a 4 mile walking path!

Happy Anniversary Danny & Teri!

4 years married today
17 years together


My Dad's big day

My daddy, The Cincinnati Kid, was inducted into the Billiards Hall of Fame tonight, in Louisville, KY. My brother Danny drove him down for the ceremony and to chat with the guys playing in the Derby City Classic.

Here is a video of his speach ...

And he was also interviewed by Inside Pool ... check out the video here!

Congratulations, Daddy-O!

So here I am again ... weighing myself two months before my vacation only to discover that I've put on ten pounds in the past year!

I tell you what, I thank God every day that I was finally able to quit smoking two years ago, but this pound a month I've been putting on since then is starting to get on my last nerve.

So I must drop 20 pounds, preferably 30, before I can be seen in a bathing suit again. That Chicago pizza that Melissa dropped off sure isn't going to help my plight!

Happy New Year!

Wow, it's been a couple of months since I posted here. Not too much has happened outside of the normal holiday stuff. Casey and I visited Cincinnati in early December but didn't take any pictures of that trip. We're actually staying in Albuquerque all of January! I'll be heading to Dallas at some point in February, then we go on our cruise in March. The countdown to drop at least 20 pounds has already begun (although I've already skipped a yoga class this year).

I'm also back into my photography hobby so I started a new blog to host my Picture A Day Project, a photo diary of sorts. The thought is that if you use your camera every day you'll get better at making pictures ... we'll see!

We'll also post more pictures as our travels come and go.

Happy 2008!
