Losing Weight is Hard

September 10, 2008

photo credit: ladybugbkt This was going to be my week.  Once again I’ve been slipping but I’ve been at least thinking about what I need to do to get back on track.  Monday was going to be a hard day for me, but I was prepared for it and I was looking forward to getting [...]

What is Your Biggest Health/Fitness Vice?

July 12, 2008

This is the closest I’ve gotten to the start of a meme, where Fit36 started this meme by tagging Andrew who tagged me. Fit36′s vices are eating out at lunch and tequila. Andrews exercise vice had been having his exercise plans fizzle out (but he is past that now as evidenced by now being a [...]


Bad Meal of the Day - Breakfast Cereal

May 15, 2008

I don’t usually eat cereal for breakfast but the last couple of days were exceptions. I needed something fast, and having a bowl of cereal with skim milk sounded like it would hit the spot. How bad can a bowl of cereal be? How about 640 calories. How’s that, you ask? Well, first you start [...]


Bad Meal of the Day - McDonald’s Breakfast

May 13, 2008

The joys of flying!] I’m still no expert at proper eating while traveling and today started in typical bad fashion - breakfast at McDonald’s. The Golden [...]


Bad Meal of the Day - Subway Tuna Sub

May 7, 2008

A comment on Mike’s blog got me thinking about some things I need to do differently, one of which is improve my logging of meals. I’m finding that really hard to do, but I know I need to do it. So to start with I am going to try to write about the worst meal [...]


What I Have Learned by Journaling my Eating

February 13, 2008

I have been keeping pretty close track of my caloric intake the last few days and have a few observations. You eat more than you think.  I bought a box of Special K Cinnamon Pecan cereal this weekend.  I’m not a huge cereal eater, or at least I haven’t been since I have been on [...]


Use the Chipotle Calorie Calculator For a Dose of Reality

January 18, 2008

I’ve mentioned numerous times before how a part of my current diet strategy is taking my old standard meals that I am used to eating and optimizing them to find the perfect portion sizes that still satisfy me.  See Even More Paring Down at Noodles & Company as an example. Another restaurant where I eat [...]


Going To Bed Hungry

January 11, 2008

I’m going to bed hungry tonight and I feel good about that.  No, I haven’t suddenly gone off my rocker and am starving myself, don’t worry.  But I am slowly but surely trying to remind my body that it doesn’t need to be full all the time.  Of course take all of this with a [...]
