Let Me Explain…

So here’s the deal. I pulled a Jonah Hill (and not in a good way). This time last year I was hovering around 240. I had lost about 70 pounds and was feeling pretty proud of myself. But I learned that there’s a difference between losing weight fast and losing weight the right way. It’s […]

Weight Loss 2.0

So here’s the deal. Lost a bunch of weight, gained most of it back, felt like a fatty, ate some ice cream, felt better. That said, I am going at it again and am hoping that this time, my approach to weight loss will be more sustainable. I am blogging to keep myself motivated and […]

The Worst Delivery Experience…

So, look. I get off work at 4:00 am. By the time I recover from the inevitable coma that follows a graveyard shift, the dining hall has closed. What’s my solution? I get delivery. So I had heard good things about this restaurant called Seaboat so I order a meal: 3 shrimp, 2 catfish strips, […]

Tangent: You’re Not Fedorable

Alright, look. This has nothing to do with my site. No food here and most certainly no fitness. Fedoras may just be as big of an indicator of a person’s character as jean shorts. For example. If you own and¬†publicly¬†wear a pair of jean shorts, you are almost certainly one of the following. A seasoned […]

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 1,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 3 years to get […]

Quadruple F Update

Hello All, So after a few terribly grueling months of college science I have finally found my way around in the college atmosphere. I took some time off to focus on school. Next semester I have mostly policy classes and only two classes in the hard sciences so I will hopefully be able to put […]

My Job

Please, readers, let me get serious for like, one second. I can’t tell you how much my new job has changed me. I’ve only worked a day, one shift, but that’s all it took. I work for Beckwith Residential Support Services. It’s a healthcare job. The university offers some incredibly cutting edge options for it’s […]

My (Guilt) Trip to the Dentist

In honor of Shark Week, I feel like a post about my teeth is in order. No, it’s not really food nor fitness but it’s my website so bite me. Pun intended. So I sit down in the dentists chair and the dental assistant asks me if I floss. Look… You know. I know. I […]

The State of the Sag- August 2012

Let me just preface this by saying, nobody cringe at the self-depreciating humor. It’s the only way I keep my ego in check. Now, I’ve been trying out a few new ways to lose weight and for the most part it’s been working. Unfortunately it looks like it’s too little too late. I recently went […]
