Redefining weekly success
Monday, February 13, 2012      11 comments

I've spent too much time worrying over things I cannot control. What I CAN'T control: the number the scale gives me in the short-term. The scale is what computer programmers call a "black box" -- many variables affect it, but we cannot see ... Read more
Cutting the artificial sweeteners
Sunday, February 12, 2012      9 comments

After reading a lot about artificial sweeteners, I have decided to cut them from my diet. I rarely drink diet soda, but my protein powder contains Splenda, and I occasionally ate sugar-free fruit candy, erroneously thinking it would be slightly ... Read more

I made this animated gif to show myself my progress since last Spring (I had just woken up in both pics.. no hair, no makeup, yikes) Somewhat unexpectedly, this project has led me some real revelations of how far I really have come since la... Read more

Friday, February 10, 2012      5 comments

The last few days have been crazy for me. I had a bunch of tests (including a midterm), the stress of which was exacerbated by the fact that it's my TOM, and I was also sicker than a dog all of Wednesday and most of yesterday. I ended up not get... Read more

Wednesday, February 08, 2012      9 comments

Sigh. My calories are too low. This calorie range issue may also have played a part in my lackluster running performance that I spoke of a few blogs ago. I should have known better, but on the suggestion of people-whose-business-it-is-no

Sunday, February 05, 2012      5 comments

I weigh 379 lbs. Today I learned (via Bod Pod) that my lean body mass is currently 214 lb (that's right, my muscles, bones, and organs--not counting body fat--weigh that much. Uh, wow! yes, that is more than most men.) This is unexpected an... Read more
Low Carb day 16 - Performance issues, re-evaluating carb goals
Saturday, February 04, 2012      5 comments

This post is sort of technical and boring: if you skip down to the "summary" at the bottom you won't miss much. I mostly write this stuff down for my own benefit, so I can clearly document problems and organize potential solutions. Note: "N... Read more

There is a park right next to my apartment with walking and cycling trails. I haven't been in it for almost a year. But why, you might be asking yourself, would I not take advantage of a park right next to my apartment, since I have been tr... Read more
January Re-cap
Tuesday, January 31, 2012      6 comments

January was .. challening. Taxing. Mentally exhausting. But, there were also improvements and victories. I have lost nearly all of the December gain and am back on track with my sometimes-painfully-slow-but-S
