    I didn't try to cut back on calories or do and "fake eating". I just tracked what I ate for a month. Here is what I learned. I am eating way too much fat and salt. So my nutritional goal for the summer is to cut back on those two things. I have already started to do some research a... Read more

  • Living with a killer

    6/4/2021 1:26:07 PM, by -JAMES-

    Yesterday my wife asked me to clean up some body parts she found in the basement. It was a small furry paw up to the knee. Sort of looked like a cat paw but smaller. This morning it occurred to me, as the orange monster, Ruffy the cat, was on my lap, purring and being petted... there have been ... Read more

    Extremely hot today around 100 now. Feeling that our stupidity is causing us so much pain. We have cut down so many trees in Dhaka. Building this concrete jungle as we call it. So many high buildings but the roads are a mess & the draining after rain. Thank you so much for your kind comments... Read more

    6/4/2021 5:30:45 AM, by JSTETSER

    I have talked with friends and it has helped to a degree. Yesterday I took the time to talk with a professional about my problems and life situation. Sometimes, it's just worth having an objective opinion on what a person is facing. While I did not come out with a different life plan or ... Read more

    Tough day for my workout - I felt tight and stiff, and I didn't use the weight I was hoping to - it felt like too much. (it probably was - I haven't done leg work in a LONG time.) My playlist wasn't very inspiring, the gym was packed...just a blah moment. Then I jumped onto Pinterest to find a wor... Read more

    Once again, a reminder that I am utilizing my own way of counting days that makes zero sense, but I like it! The man has decided that he wants to exercise in the pool and wanted these really dorky foamy things for working out. I looked up the reviews and they were crap... I then looked up... Read more

    I met with a friend yesterday. When I told her that I had not made progress on my license, she asked me an important question: What time is later? Later could 5 minutes from now, or tomorrow, or next week, or never! I will do this, later, or... I will make a plan to have som... Read more
