Cycling: Wanna ride? Be prepared!
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! I read a tidbit in Bicycling magazine entitled 5 Things You Should Have In Your Car obvious stuff, really. It reminded me that I wanted to write about one of my experiments/resolutions last year. I decided (maybe this idea spawned ......

Garmin Edge 500 - Shiny new toy
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! I like my Garmin Forerunner 305 but the call of a new tech gadget is strong! I’ve been eyeing the Garmin Edge 705 for a while now but the price has been an issue. Garmin recently announced the Edge 500 which looks to be more inline with what I want. I don’t often (never?) need mapping when on my bike. Kind of a nice-to-have that would probably be wasted and never used. Here is a VERY in depth review of ......

I was dropped!
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! My friend John and I (yeah everyone else bailed on us and it was such a nice day for a ride. High 40s minimal rain. It does not get any better in January in Washington people!) rode 30 miles (out-back on the FootHills trail between Puyallup and South Prairie). We started at 8AM and rode at a pretty mild pace through 10 miles... then John pulled away for the last five miles. When we finally met up at the ......

Supplements
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! Several people have asked me for a list of the supplements that I use. Well here is that list. My definition of supplement is anything I take or use that isn’t real/whole food. I try whenever possible to eat healthy whole foods but in this busy world it is impossible to eat right 100% of the time so I supplement with a great multi vitamin, EFAs, joint health compound and protein drinks and protein bars. ......

Fitness Dollars
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! In starting this new contest I’m trying to decide how to best invest my fitness dollars. On one level this seems so simple – I know the formula very well, just eat less and exercise more! I’ve lost seventy pounds by doing this so I know it works. It is simple. Almost too simple. Problem is that I’ve hit a plateau and actually gained back some weight. It ends here. It ends now. I will focus. So it may ......

The Contest
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! I hate to call what we’re doing “The Biggest Loser” because it seems whenever two or more people decide to lose weight and get healthy it becomes a Biggest Loser contest. One problem with a Biggest Loser style contest is that it favors people who are massively overweight. No one at Benchmark Plus is massively overweight and some people here are even in darned good shape! We wanted a way to involve everyone ......

Workouts!
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! Did two three workouts yesterday neither none of which were on a bicycle. *waits for faithful readers to get up off of the floor* The first was a Crossfit workout. Crossfit is an evil spawn of Satan workout regime. From the Crossfit wikipedia entry: CrossFit workouts typically call for athletes to work hard and fast, often with no rest. Many CrossFit gyms use scoring and ranking systems, transforming ......

Six Meals Per Day
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! In my previous Getting Healthy post I mentioned that "You have to be willing to challenge the status-quo even when you skinny friends look at you like you're stupid (I have a story about this but I'll save it for a future installment)." Well I suppose this is that future installment. It’s only been like 13 months… gimme a break! By challenging the status-quo I was specifically referring to the fact that ......
