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.

Bad Habits #17 – We’re Already In a Zombie Apocalypse, And It’s Making Us Fatter

When I was growing up, I was the guy who fell asleep in the back of the class.  This started as early as thirteen years old or so.  And it wasn’t the result of narcolepsy or any other sleep condition.  It was initially because I would often stay up late reading and would go toContinue reading “Bad Habits #17 – We’re Already In a Zombie Apocalypse, And It’s Making Us Fatter”

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.

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”

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”

Good Habits #9 – Risking Disaster in the Kitchen Can Help You Lose Weight

I mentioned a while back that when I was a bachelor, I ate crap.  As a result, the five miles a day I was running was completely cancelled out by the garbage I was wolfing down.  Sometimes it was a tendency to binge on potato chips and ice cream.  Sometimes it was my tendency toContinue reading “Good Habits #9 – Risking Disaster in the Kitchen Can Help You Lose Weight”

Bad Habits #8 – Blobs On the Bayou: Why Louisiana is So Obese

When I wrote a piece on why my home state of Georgia is obese, I looked at a map of the country showing each state’s relative obesity.  There’s a big blob of obesity (bad pun intended) in the South and Midwest.  Including the state where some of my favorite cuisine is made, Louisiana.  Louisianans areContinue reading “Bad Habits #8 – Blobs On the Bayou: Why Louisiana is So Obese”
