Hi, I'm into Day 4 now of my experimental Eating Whatever I Want And Tracking It. Here's what I've found so far:

*So f... Read more
So I guesstimated my calories for yesterday to be around 2,700. That's lower than I had guessed a day of eating whatever I want would be, but it was still enough to put me up at 170.6lbs today after being 167 a few days ago.

Learning from my mistakes..

I'm Jewish and I admit it still feels weird for me to say "merry Christmas." But I should get used to it, because ever since I've been with Jess, all my Christmasses have been very merry!
Today I went for my 2nd annual run from Jess' parent... Read more
It was actually sunny and not ridiculously cold when I left school today, so on this first day of winter, I went for a late-afternoon run. We FINALLY got our first significant snow yesterday, so I had to watch out for slippery spots at times, b... Read more
Par-tay! Happy birthday to me! Tomorrow I'm turning 33! The celebration began on Friday with a faculty breakfast where everyone with a December birthday was celebrated, and then it continued today where my entire in-law family surprised me by c... Read more
I am feeling very accomplished today. Last time I wrote I set a goal for myself to count calories throughout the work week until Friday afternoon, and I did it! I'm down almost three pounds for my efforts, too! Not only that, but with this pa... Read more
