Exercise #19 – Strange Workouts People Do In The Suburbs

One habit I’ve taken up of late is to review the latest trends in the fitness world.  Not that I’m a particularly trendy guy.  I’m a CPA, which is as far from swanky and fashionable as professions can get.  But I like to see what people are doing on the off chance that I mightContinue reading “Exercise #19 – Strange Workouts People Do In The Suburbs”


Bad Habits #18 – 24 Other People’s Bad Habits, A Blatantly Clickbaity Listicle

So, I’ve been writing this blog off and on for roughly two and a half years.  Or is it three and a half years?  Sometimes I lose track because that year where we all hid under the bed feels like it doesn’t count. You know the one I mean. The one dominated by the All-PowerfulContinue reading “Bad Habits #18 – 24 Other People’s Bad Habits, A Blatantly Clickbaity Listicle”

How Game of Thrones Made Me Start Losing Weight

Like many people, my wife and I were fond of Game of Thrones.  Well, I was fond of it.  My wife … was full fangirl.  The “searching the internet and watching all of the YouTube videos describing the history of Westeros” type of fangirl.  The “if Kit Harrington stopped by and proposed marriage, she wouldContinue reading “How Game of Thrones Made Me Start Losing Weight”

Exercise #16 – Work Hard, Not Smart

Recently, I commented on how I’ve lost a little ground in my “Weight Loss Journey.” And yes, I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. That insufferable, trendy phrase probably emerged from the irritating part of the Internet where people look way happier than they are in real life (Instagram), or that partContinue reading “Exercise #16 – Work Hard, Not Smart”

Bad Habits #14 – Return of The Jelly (Belly)

So I’ve noticed that I put a little weight back on recently.  I can feel the jealous people at the office giving me gloating glances when my back is turned.  I know they snicker that my miraculous weight loss, which made all of them feel inadequate, is apparently reversing.  Or at least I would ifContinue reading “Bad Habits #14 – Return of The Jelly (Belly)”

Exercise #15 – We’re Fat Because They Took Our Jerbs

Ever since I’ve started losing weight, I’ve periodically been looking into what caused Americans to gain so much weight.  Over the past fifty years or so, we’ve, on average, put on something like 40 pounds per person.  Or was it 30?  Or 50?  I forgot.  It’s in that range, and any of those is tooContinue reading “Exercise #15 – We’re Fat Because They Took Our Jerbs”

Love Your Body Like You Love Children. Wait, Not Like That.

One of the more bizarre (and that’s saying something) debates I witness online is over the subject of “body positivity”.  Mostly because body positivity is one of those bizarre phrases that can mean different things to different people and therefore doesn’t really mean anything. It’s not necessarily a bad thing.  When I was growing up,Continue reading “Love Your Body Like You Love Children. Wait, Not Like That.”

Bad Habits #14 – Avoid The New Year’s Fitness Blitzkrieg

There are a few times of year that people put unbelievably insufferable things on their social media feeds.  Okay that’s…every time of year.  But there are a couple of times where the insufferability hits ungodly peaks.  Such as everyone showing how happy they are at Thanksgiving, but clearly omitting the videos of their crazy unclesContinue reading “Bad Habits #14 – Avoid The New Year’s Fitness Blitzkrieg”

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”

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”
