Saturday, October 11, 2014      8 comments

In July of 2013, I weighed 172, down from a high of 245, just three pounds from exiting the "obese" column. Over the next year, I steadily inched my way back to 200, crossing that dreaded line in August. I was mired in self-loathing, weighing ... Read more

I've had two really lovely desserts this week. Delicious unexpected treats that did not break the caloric bank. 1.5 oz burrata cheese (would also work with a nice fresh mozzarella) 1 white peach, diced (deliciously in season right now!) ... Read more
"Life is NOT a dress rehearsal."
Thursday, September 04, 2014      7 comments

This morning I awoke with an aphorism rolling about in my head: "Life is NOT a dress rehearsal." I'm not sure where this phrase came from but I'm sure of it's meaning: You only get one shot in life. This is your only chance, so make it count. ... Read more
