Wednesday, August 06, 2008      9 comments

I don't know if I can really say I've reached my goals, when I'm still technically overweight. I also don't really like the fact that I'm still a size 14/16. But I can tell that if I'm not already at my body's set point, I'm getting there. ... Read more

Yup, I've been anti-social lately. I don't particularly know why. I've just been super busy. However, when I mention that and people ask what I've been up to, I can never really think of anything to say. I've always been really comfortab... Read more

So I decided to read the book by Jared Fogle, the guy who lost weight eating only at Subway. He gives some practical advise, nothing too terribly mind-blowing. Although I did realize that I wasn't too keen on some of his tactics. I me... Read more
Hiking on the fourth
Saturday, July 05, 2008      1 comments

So, you can be a gym rat. Go pretty much every day, most days of the week. But that does not prepare you for actual hiking. Trust me. Both sides of my butt are whining with soreness every time I walk. I had no idea that so many people w... Read more
