Should there be a sin tax on food?

This was something my wife and I were discussing the other night. As we are working on eating healthier, our grocery bills are going up because we have to buy all this stuff new at the same time, and they sure don't make it cheap. Some of the... Read more
There is an upside to Thanksgiving food...

and that is the fact that all of the traditional foods for Thanksgiving go on sale because most people wont' buy them for anything else. My wife and I scored 2 free turkeys from a local grocery store's promotion where shoppers are given 1 turke... Read more
I survived Thanksgiving

So Thanksgiving has come and went and I still managed to lose half a pound. I did unfortunately eat too much. I was real careful with the usual suspects (stuffing, potatoes, green bean casserole) but what did me in was the Chex mix on the tabl... Read more

I'm able to use the Wii Fit board that I bought almost 3 years ago. When I bought it I didn't know that it only had an upper limit of 330 pounds and it's been sitting in a corner unused (pretty much like the Wii itself, once I got my PS3 I bare... Read more

As I mentioned last entry, my wife and I celebrated our 10th anniversary this weekend by vacationing in the Portage / Baraboo / Wisconsin Dells, WI area (where we were married). Saturday and Sunday were just as great as Friday was. We slep... Read more

Since I've blogged, over 18 months actually. So much has changed which I'll try to get into in more detail down the road. The short of it is that I was going to restart the diet and exercise routine again because I had put on all the weight I ... Read more

It's been a while since I've blogged or have done anything on Sparkpeople. A lot of it has been due to a hell of a lot going on (new baby, kid #1 starting 1st grade, deaths, depression, cats and dogs living together). However, I've decided to ... Read more

I haven't been on for about a month and a half. The reason is that I've been pretty busy as of late. I usually am around tax time, as we typically get a chunk of money back and then I get the fun of doing home repairs. I've had to install 3 i... Read more

A few months ago the kids fiddled with the scale and changed it to kilograms and I have no idea how to get it back. So essentially every time I weigh in, I've had to remember the weight and then use Google to convert it back in to Standard. It... Read more

My wife bought me the new DJ Hero game for the PS3. I'm really liking it so far. I wish they would release some of the mixes for audio download because it would make some really good exercise music. I would have bought a Wii workout game but ... Read more
