Tried to follow the resistance training without resetting it down to 1. It was hard. Broke out in a sweat. Burned a few more calories. Still need to work my way up to 30 minutes.

No, I did not quit. I didn't lose enthusiasm. Life got in the way. Paladin had a stroke on May 4th. My life has been turned upside down. Things have finally calmed down enough that I can start on my weight loss regimen again. I didn't post my weight because I didn't weigh myself in the morning. I want to be consistent on the time that I weigh myself each morning.

Didn't workout on the machine today. I was out in the backyard, sweating in the summerlike heat, pounding concrete with a sledge hammer for about an hour. Had a chip fly towards my eye, but it dinged the safety goggles, which I was smart enough to wear. I was sweating like crazy when I finished. Raised a couple of blisters. Wish I knew how many calories I burned.

No weight today. Forgot to weigh myself, as soon as I woke up. I would like to be consistent. Tried the Power Ramp setting on the Nordic Track. Again, I set the resistance down when the machine wanted it increased. I am still working towards a steady 10 minutes.

Super Saver wins the 136th Kentucky Derby

Jockey Calvin Borel guides the horse to victory on the inside rail, giving trainer Todd Pletcher his first victory in the Run for the Roses on his 25th try.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Jockey Calvin Borel steered Super Saver through the mud to win his third Kentucky Derby in four years. The win ended trainer Todd Pletcher's Derby drought.

Pletcher came into the race 0 for 24, but Borel put him in the winner's circle at Churchill Downs with a perfect ride along the rail and through the slop.

Super Saver covered the 1 1/4-miles in 2:04.45 as the second-choice behind favorite Lookin At Lucky. He paid $18, $8.80 and $6 to win.

Ice Box paid $11.20 and $8 after nipping Paddy O'Prado at the wire for second. Paddy O'Prado paid $7.40 to show.

Borel won a shocker last spring with 50-1 long shot Mine That Bird and took his first Derby in 2007 aboard Street Sense.

The rider nicknamed "Bo-rail" for his rail-hugging rides at his hometown track did it again. He stalked the leaders early then moved forward in the stretch to win going away.

Pletcher let out a whoop and slapped his hands together after his colt crossed the finish line, snapping a dubious skid that the Eclipse Award winning trainer was eager to end.

Lookin At Lucky started on the rail and finished sixth for three-time Derby winning trainer Bob Baffert.

Mike and I went shopping today. Got a lesson in how much sodium is packed into a lot of foods. One can of chili and a hunk of cornbread covers the RDA in just one meal. Going to have to make a lot of things from scratch.
