Fast Metabolism Diet - Week Four
Saturday, March 28, 2020      2 comments

Well, I completed the 28 days of the Fast Metabolism Diet (FMD) and over the course of the last 28 days I am happy to report that I lost 9lbs. The book promises up to 20lbs, but I had no illusions that I would have that kind of a loss. Still, 9l... Read more
Fast Metabolism Diet - Week Three

This week was a little different for me because I worked from home all week. That means that I didn’t have to be so anal about doing all the evening food preps for the next day. I don’t know whether that was a good thing or a bad thing. I did a ... Read more

I have been following the Fast Metabolism Diet (FMD) for two weeks now, and I believe I am getting into the groove of this. One thing I did not mention last week was the water requirement. Half of your body weight in ounces. That means more than... Read more

I think non-scale victories mean so much more than scale victories do. You've probably seen me talk about the scale being the "stupid box" because it only reflects mass at a particular moment. It doesn't know how many steps you walked yesterday,... Read more
20 minutes at a time
Sunday, February 16, 2020      3 comments

I accomplished quite a bit today, in 20 minute chunks of time. I ended up with more than 10,000 steps for the day and climbed 40 flights of stairs. Feeling pretty accomplished. We keep the downstairs of our home company ready. The upstairs... Read more
when the scale just doesn't tell the whole story
Wednesday, February 12, 2020      3 comments

This is a story about how the scale just gives you one number and why it is oh so important to get the fuller picture. I am talking about getting regular biometric screenings done, where the screenings tell you not only your weight but also your... Read more
It will come to me

This week was an exciting week for me, as I am now only 5lbs away from reaching my second mini-goal. My first goal was to get back into the 100 club and it took little over a year to do that. My second goal is 185. Why is 185 my magic number? I ... Read more
