Sleep…

In Fitness, Lifestyle by Matt2 Comments

I haven’t been sleeping.  I haven’t been reading.  I haven’t been praying.  I haven’t been living healthy.  I haven’t been working well.  I haven’t been blogging. Do you know why?  Because I haven’t been sleeping. I have had such a struggle over the last couple of years with sleep.  I’ve been going through another spell (the longest so far) where …

Schneiter’s Golf Course

In Business, Golf, Projects by Matt0 Comments

I got a chance to redesign the site for my local golf course last fall.  I love playing at Schneiter’s Bluff as it’s just around the corner from my house and as it matures it’s turning into quite a beautiful spot to play.  Anyway, the site is really 3 sites…one for Schneiter’s Bluff Golf Course, one for Schneiter’s Riverside Golf …

211 and counting (more than just pounds)

I did well over Christmas…got a wii fit even after I had dropped some weight.  I let myself slide a bit and was back up to 215.  By mid-January, I was 215 again.  Becky finally got us both on a program that made more sense…we’re actually logging our food each day and counting the calories.  We’ve figured out how many …

212! Success at last!

So I finally got my act together!  As I mentioned in my last post about weight loss I have finally gotten behind a real effort to drop some weight and at my weigh in this week I had proven to have lost 6 pounds in the last 7 days!  I’m totally excited and I am really looking forward to being …

218, but I have let that motivate me for real this time!

Alright, I can honestly say that it was the last straw.  I thought that just walking every day would do it but as much as I need the exercise, I realized that John Daly walked every day and was one of the best golfers in the world at one time!  It’s my diet.  So, this week I finally did what …

The Monkey’s Off My Back!

In Golf by Matt1 Comment

It is with great pride that I announce here on my blog that the second of my 2009 golfing goals has been met.  I set out to break 80 this year from the tips and this past Sunday I shot a 78 from the black tees at my home course, Schneiter’s Bluff Golf Course!  I’m really excited about it as …

217 pounds – 1 pound again?

In Fitness, Lifestyle by Matt0 Comments

Apparently I didn’t mean it before and seeing as this is Tuesday and I haven’t exercised yet this week, I would venture to say that my heart isn’t really in this yet.  I’m going to play as many holes of golf as I can in a couple of hours so hopefully that will help me get started.  Anyway, here’s keeping …

Golfing Bountiful Ridge

Isn’t great to spend time with friends?  It’s been a long time since Billy and I spent as much time with each other as we have this week.  Monday we did 18 at Schneiter’s Riverside, Tuesday we did 18 at Bountiful Ridge, Friday we did 9 at the Bluff and he just called me for another 9 this afternoon.  It’s …

218 pounds – 1 pound this week

This isn’t going to be as easy as I thought.  I mean come on!  1 pound?  I need to do better.  I hate that I’m starting off slow because you can see by my milestones that I’ve got some pretty lofty milestones up front.  I hope I don’t need to adjust them.  We’ll see what happens once October hits and …

Confessions at Thanksgiving Point

In Golf, Lifestyle by Matt0 Comments

I am really writing this so that I can look back some day at where I came from. I recently played in the Utah Mid-Amateur Championship.  It is a tournament reserved for men at least 25 years of age and at least a 9.9 handicap index.  It was played at Thanksgiving Point – course that we played from the tips…7700 …

My Goal

In Golf, Lifestyle by Matt0 Comments

So here is the story to date:  I have decided to set some goals for my golf game this year.  Well, actually one goal…to break 80 from the back tees.  I don’t think I care which course it’s on, but there’s a monkey on my back that I have to remove.  It’s so difficult for me.  I really do practice …
