We Need A New Refrigerator

November 21, 2007

We had a power outage this weekend and didn’t notice for a couple of days that while the refrigerator did look and sound like it came back with the power (the fan was running and the light was on) that it actually wasn’t working any more. So we had to throw away a lot of […]


A Few Questions About Calories

November 19, 2007

I got to thinking this weekend about calories.  In particular, how many calories there were in some soup I was thinking of making from scratch.  Maybe this is a dumb question, but how do I figure out how many calories (and other nutritional data for that matter) are in something I make from scratch? I’ve […]


This Is How It Happens

October 30, 2007

Most, if not all, of my readers are or have been in a battle with food.  What I am about to describe will no doubt elicit a simple “well duh, that happens to me all the time” response.  Still, it’s important for me to write, for myself if nobody else. Here is how easily a […]

Food Journal

September 13, 2007

Yesterday was a good day overall; I put in 40 minutes of strength training in the morning and 25 minutes of cardio in the afternoon.  My eating was right on plan, in fact a little less than usual since I didn’t have much proteins that I would normally have for breakfast or dinner. At no […]

Off to a good start

August 3, 2007

So yesterday went pretty well, but it’s always easier for me to eat well when I am at home - fast food and business travel are two of my biggest challenges.  I grazed a little bit at night after dinner but didn’t gorge on anything and pretty much kept in line.  I have to stop […]
