Exercise #14 – Slackercising

One thing I realized when I started writing this blog is that not everyone has a job quite so flexible as mine.  Meaning they can’t easily fit things like exercise and healthy eating into their schedule.  The advantage of an otherwise dreary job like public accounting is that you don’t necessarily have to work nineContinue reading “Exercise #14 – Slackercising”

Bad Habits #13 – How Liberating Italy From Fascism Made America Fat

Since my wife and I live about 30 minutes from the beach, we often spend a Saturday there in the Summer.  Assuming there are no hurricanes.  Or massive algae blooms killing all of the fish and causing them to wash up on the shore.  But assuming we’re not facing meteorological Armageddon or osteichthyan genocide, aContinue reading “Bad Habits #13 – How Liberating Italy From Fascism Made America Fat”

Good Habits #13 – You Can Have A Healthy Lunch Thanks To An English Aristocrat With Bad Habits

So when one works as a CPA, sanity requires that we occasionally step out of the office to escape the mind numbing, soul crushing monotony of wading through things like accounting standards, SEC regulations, DOL regulations, or the dark, fetid morass that is USC Title 26.  Which is the internal revenue code.  Or merely theContinue reading “Good Habits #13 – You Can Have A Healthy Lunch Thanks To An English Aristocrat With Bad Habits”

Exercise #13 – If You Want A Friend (And Less Of A Waist) Get a Dog

One of the things Florida is renowned for (apart from crazy people) is it’s retired population.  And despite the fact that we normally get a bit plumper as we age, the aging Florida Men and Florida Women I see in my neighborhood really don’t appear to suffer from that.  I’ve often been curious how theseContinue reading “Exercise #13 – If You Want A Friend (And Less Of A Waist) Get a Dog”

Uncle Sam Wants to Remind You Why Being Healthy is Good For You And The Country

So during the ravages of the Darkness That Came From Hubei Province, the Creeping Doom of Wuhan, The Disease That May Or May Not Have Come From A Lab Or From Bats And Pangolins Getting Frisky, Americans got a lot fatter.  Over a third of us are obese now, and plenty more are overweight butContinue reading “Uncle Sam Wants to Remind You Why Being Healthy is Good For You And The Country”

Bad Habits #12 – It’s a Monk’s Life In The Online Heathbrosphere

I’ve noticed something while spending time on Twitter.  And I know that I should stop spending too much time on Twitter.  It appears to make you angrier, meaner, less happy, and dumber.  Tech geeks figured out Twitter’s impacts the hard way.  They tried to train an AI’s social interactions by putting it on Twitter.  ItContinue reading “Bad Habits #12 – It’s a Monk’s Life In The Online Heathbrosphere”

Good Habits #12 – Spice Up Things In The Kitchen. No, Not Like That.

A while back, I posted a piece about how cooking for yourself can be helpful when losing weight.  But one of the dangers of cooking for yourself is…mediocrity.  My cooking skills have improved, but even now that I can manage to cook things that don’t qualify as Category 1 Toxic Materials on the EPA’s toxicityContinue reading “Good Habits #12 – Spice Up Things In The Kitchen. No, Not Like That.”

Exercise #12 – Weight Loss By Risking Hypothermia

Growing up mostly in Georgia, and now living in Florida, seeing the snow is a rare occurrence.  It might have snowed once every five to ten years in Savannah, and usually only barely.  And snow in Florida would probably drive the Florida Men insane, as they would be convinced that the end of days hadContinue reading “Exercise #12 – Weight Loss By Risking Hypothermia”

Bad Habits #11 – Short-Term Bro Anorexia

I’ve been living healthy for just over two years. I’m down sixty pounds and holding at the low to mid 190 pound range. It would be lower, but as I’ve mentioned before (on two separate occasions, really), I’ve added weightlifting to the regimen. So instead of losing fat, I now replace it with muscle whichContinue reading “Bad Habits #11 – Short-Term Bro Anorexia”

Good Habits #11 – How to Obtain Good Health By Setting Your Brain On Fire

Back in 1996 (I’m giving away how old I am again), I was at a friend’s house watching the opening ceremony of the Olympic games.  At some point during the night, one of her vixen girlfriends tricked me into eating a hot pepper.  Since I was always willing to show off (read: make a foolContinue reading “Good Habits #11 – How to Obtain Good Health By Setting Your Brain On Fire”
