I got lazy and complacent for almost 6 months. A 3-week long vacation, a trip to Vegas a few weeks later, getting a puppy, increased stress and workload at work, etc. all were convenient excuses to eat like sh!t and not exercise. Anyway, s... Read more

Did you ever wonder what it was like to jump out of a perfectly good airplane at over 13,000 feet? I found out today, and the answer is: there really are no words to explain just how awesome it was. I loved every foot of it. ... Read more

Let's get right to it- here's what new things I have tried since last post: An olive - Sorry, olive connoisseurs, I have no idea what type it was. It was big, green, salty as all hell, and still had the pit in it. Yuck-o. 0/5. I was tol... Read more

Today's new food: A nectarine. I think I picked one at the store that might have been a day shy of ripe, but it is very good. I have never had one before. I had a peach once and really didn't like it, but this was years ago and the old ... Read more

I've been trying so many new foods the past several months that the thought occurred to me to write a short note about my experience. A one paragraph review of whatever new food I am trying, or food I tried many years ago and hated. So I w... Read more

Your decision to drop Michael Phelps as a sponsor is appalling. You say Phelps's behavior is "not consistent with the image of Kellogg." What image of Kellogg? The image of selling and aggressively marketing HFCS and trans-fat laden garb... Read more

For my entire life I have HATED eggs. Hated them. I think it has something to do with being forced to eat them when I was 7 by my parents. If I didn't eat my eggs, I didn't get an allowance. After two weeks I told them to keep the money. A... Read more

Yesterday we went through our closet to donate a bunch of clothes to Goodwill. I wasn't wearing a lot of these clothes anymore because quite frankly they were too big. In the summer I thought I had gotten rid of all my biggest waist pants. I ... Read more
