I'm a boyfriend, baker, and book lover; a cook; a cat and dog person; an educator; and more. Here I'll record the goings on relating to my nutrition, fitness, and general well being. Asides on entertainment, current events, and philosophy are frequent.

Member Since: 12/28/2011

My Goals:
In 2012 I dropped a lot of pounds and several pants and shirt sizes. In 2013 my goals are to:
- maintain my weight within about 5lbs, either direction
- put on a few pounds of muscle and lose the last flab
- get into better cardiovascular condition
- develop better habits regarding exercising, time management, and self-directed learning.

I'd like to do a C25K this year.


My Program:
I eat three meals a day and occasionally small snacks. I sleep eight hours a night, cook almost all my meals myself, eat less meat than I used to, and keep good track of what I consume.

I am returning to a modification of 5BX for calisthenics, along with some body weight exercises for strength & toning, and short videos for cardio.

Other Information:
"The life of a human being does not exist merely in the sphere of transitive verbs." -- Martin Buber, "I and Thou"

Born in Oregon, raised in Idaho, college in California, most of my adulthood in Wisconsin, several years in central Europe, and now in Alabama for over two years -- that's my geography in a nutshell.

Three books that best encapsulate me might be: "Gödel, Escher, Bach" (D. Hofstadter), "Faust" (Goethe), and "House of Leaves" (Mark Z. Danielewski). When it comes to movies, I always find myself returning to The Dude, but I'm also in constant awe of Orson Welles and "Metropolis." I prefer Marvel to DC, Emacs to vi, Python to Perl, and love cats and dogs equally.
