Friday, August 10, 2018      2 comments

I haven't had to deal with any major setbacks since I lost the weight about five years ago, so I'm probably more distressed by this than I really ought to be. Over time I've become used to my routine: walking 10,000-15,000 steps per day (every d... Read more

I harvested the first, unexpected cherry tomatoes from my small garden last night... It was very exciting! And they were surprisingly yummy, considering I've never been a fan of tomatoes before. Here's hoping my kale, eggplant, bell peppers, zu... Read more

I'm finally home from a trip (for work) to Philadelphia. The highlight of the trip was finally getting to visit the Mutter Museum. The downside was the erratic schedule and the real lack of healthy restaurant options near my hotel and the conven... Read more
