Six months ago or so, I wrote a post here about my new endocrinologist offering me weight loss drugs. He went through the pros and cons and I decided against them. In short, I feel like they're cheating. I feel like I should be able to do this o... Read more

I'm on my only business trip of the summer right now. (Which, by the way, is amazing! I never get to stay home this much!) Figuring it's just one week out of the whole summer, I set some rules for myself before going: 1. Exercise at least ... Read more
Adios, FitBit Connection.
Wednesday, July 09, 2014      5 comments

OK, love the new FitBit, as expected, but after 24 hours I've already disconnected it from Spark. If I track exercise here, which I like to do, the FitBit double books everything. Yesterday it added an addition 103 fitness minutes. I'm not even ... Read more
