Oh, Little Caesar's. Tastes good, smells awful.
We moved from the burbs to Minneapolis proper a few months ago and found a Little Caesar's Pizza a few blocks from our place. My wife hates it. I really like it. Go fig.
One of the main reasons she doesn't like it is the smell, particularly... Read more
To Track or Not to Track...
I've been tracking food the last few days except for Saturday. We were at a potluck type of function and the different recipes were in abundance and I'm not sure how I would track what I ate. That said, it didn't occur to me I would try to track... Read more
How many second chances does someone get?
Lucky for us, God gives us more than one second chance. Otherwise we'd all be in trouble. So here I am again. And again. And again. Thank you for your support.... Read more
Day 250 without Fast Food
I arbitrarily started a 30 Days without Fast Food regime in November, 2010, just to see what would happen. I'm happy to say that, aside from absent-mindedly grabbing a DQ Blizzard last month, I've been "sober" for so long. Can I go a year? We sh... Read more
That's how I feel sometimes when it comes to doing things like SparkPeople, homework, housework, work work, family, changing lifestyle, and so on. I just keep failing over and over. I'm not trying to be down on myself so much as acknowledge some... Read more
Day 94 of No Fast Food.
I logged in today and found my last status was "Day 32 of No Fast Food." That means I haven't logged into SP in over sixty days and I became an inactive team leader for the two teams I lead, my "SP Class" and 30 Somethings Losing 100+. That made... Read more
100 Points On the Wheel!
I have been pretty jaded about the SparkPoints login wheel ever since I joined. I consistently get 2s and 3s, and maybe got a 5 once or twice.
Today I spun 100 points on the wheel. I didn't even notice it because I was cli... Read more
I don't always cook and I don't always eat leftovers, so for me to not only cook but cook enough in order to have leftovers and actually eat them is a big deal.
Today I had leftovers from the pot roast meal I made (and mentioned in my last ... Read more
Cooking and Me
I've been cooking a lot this week and it's been awesome. On Tuesday night, I made steaks with vegetables and side dishes. Last night, I made cheeseburgers on the grill, again with vegetables on the side. Tonight, I made a pot roast (with veggies... Read more
Today was a good, good day.
I felt "off" in class today but I ate very well, I went to the gym, I recorded everything on SparkPeople, and I feel great. My wife is proud, I'm excited, and I'm doing what I can to ride this wave as long as possible.
Oh, and today is Day... Read more
Back at the Gym
I hit the gym twice this week. Once, to meet with the trainer who set up my strength training a year ago to make sure I'm going back at it with proper form, and the second to do a full workout for an hour. Rock. On!... Read more
I ate the Captain's Catch at Perkins last night and afterward I felt awful, body and soul. That thing is ridiculous; I don't know what I was thinking when I ordered it. I ate most of it. God knows why.... Read more
SIX Goals Met Today: Calories, Carbs, Fat, Protein, Fiber, and Riboflavin!
Last Tuesday, my blog entry was entitled Goals Met Today: Calories, Carbs, Fat, Protein! Yesterday's food intake let me add two additional goals met: fiber and riboflavin. The fiber goal is important to me because my wife and I have been working... Read more
Reinvigorating a SparkTeam
I spent a while setting up new team goals, team challenges, and message board threads for 30-Somethings Losing 100+, a team I've been a member of for a while and became a leader of this week. It's been interesting asking myself what I would want... Read more
Keep the Jazz Flowing
I'm a big jazz fan. I don't own a lot of jazz CDs and I don't have the jazz station programmed on my car's radio dial. But I appreciate the talent it takes to do it well, the fluidity necessary in the artist to express fluidity in the art. It's ... Read more
