2018: The Year to Come

Accompanying music: The Band: Greatest Hits Of all the ways you could describe 2017, the best and most accurate way would be to say that it was a year on Earth.  I think that many other people seem to have been mostly negatively affected during the course of 2017, but for me it wasn’t anything […]

The War Against CICO

There are a lot of articles lately in the fitness world about the “phenomenon” known as CICO.  CICO stands for “Calories In-Calories Out”, and generally it refers to the simple fact that to lose weight, you must burn more calories (“Out”) than you consume (“In”).  I think it was shortened to CICO because it’s just […]

Bullet Journal

Pictured above is the set up I used to set up my monthly pages for December 2017 in my Bullet Journal. If you’re not familiar with the concept of Bullet Journals, you probably haven’t been to the notebook section of your local book store chain recently; in that case, have a look at the “official” website for […]

Another Weight Loss Angle

I wasn’t sure what to write about today, so I thought I’d go with a popular topic in my grab bag – weight loss.  It’s something I struggle with every day, and likely will until I reach my goal (which is a healthy BMI, generally). I think I got to my lowest and visually best […]

Long Journey

I was going to post something about a Batman comic I found in my collection the other day (it’s pretty great, ironically).  But I haven’t gotten to writing that up yet. Instead I’ve been thinking about my weight loss progress a lot lately.  I haven’t really made any progress, at least not on the scale. […]

2017 Goal Update

I’m not sure if this is a post people are looking forward to, but it’s something I need to do for myself.  This is a continuation of my first post back in January about my goals for 2017, which I followed up back in March for lack of better things to write about.  At this […]

Update on 2017 Goals

Back in January, I set some goals for 2017 and thought that since we’re now three months into the year (and my birthday is this weekend), I should leave a little bit of a progress update. I didn’t intend to do this until April, but like I said – my birthday is this weekend so […]

“That is why you fail.”

I was recently introduced to MyFitnessPal’s Calorie Intake Report as a means for tracking progress with my weight goals.  I already subscribe to the notion of CICO – Calories In, Calories Out – but have had middling success implementing it in day-to-day life.  I understand how it works and everything, but my weight is fluctuating up […]

Goals For 2017

Cloudy Open Road – Original photo: https://pixabay.com/p-757949/?no_redirect I hesitate to make these kinds of posts because then it (technically) means I need to publicly follow up on them.  But I recognized that I didn’t actually set any goals for myself this year, so in search of content, this seems to be a good place and time […]
