I have been "fuzzy around the edges" re. my eating lately. Not staying on the straight and narrow path, which, for me, means GF oats in the morning with some fruit and ground flax seed and some almond milk, something healthy for lunch (usually ... Read more

Today I got up at 5:30 a.m. just to go rowing on a beautiful lake (without alligators in it!) in the big city we spent the night in. My rowing buddy and very good friend met me at the boathouse where I used to be a member, and we carried our sc... Read more

Diet vs. exercise for weight loss

Sunday, August 09, 2015      6 comments

Well, I learned something important on our recent vacation. Weight loss comes, I'd say, 90% from diet, and only 10% from exercise. Last week we went hiking in the NC mountains. A couple of days we had 20,000+ steps and almost 7 miles of stren... Read more

The Boone Fork Trail differs from most Parkway hikes in two ways. The first is that the majority of the trail is in the woods, where tumbling streams and rock outcroppings replace typically grand vistas. The second is its length. At 4.9 miles, t... Read more

"Public" blogs vs. "private" blogs

Friday, July 17, 2015      3 comments

I have been mainly blogging to myself, writing down my meal descriptions and exercise in the "notes" at the bottom of the food tracker on SP. It has been sufficient for my thoughts. Yesterday I posted a one-sentence blog stating that fact and ... Read more
