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.”

The Twelve Pounds of Christmas, or Heavy For The Holidays

So I came home for Christmas a bit early this year.  Despite the heart-pounding excitement one normally experiences while practicing public accounting, I had a lot of vacation time built up, and somehow managed to drag myself away from the siren’s call of the stacks of paperwork adorning my desk. And have now been atContinue reading “The Twelve Pounds of Christmas, or Heavy For The Holidays”

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”

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”

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”

Bad Habits #10 – Cursed Carnal Confections of Corruption And Calamity

I think one reason I was able to continue losing weight during the time when the country was at the mercy of the Creeping Doom From Wuhan was because the temptations of the office were not available to me.  I realize that seems like an incoherent thing to say.  How could there be more temptationsContinue reading “Bad Habits #10 – Cursed Carnal Confections of Corruption And Calamity”

Good Habits #10 – These Are The Things That Try Ketovore’s Souls

In my efforts to expand my knowledge of all things dietary in my pursuit of godlike abs and immortal levels of immunity, I follow a lot of health nuts on social media.  This includes the “normie” doctor types who do weird stuff like…tweet health information that’s backed up by years of empirical data.  But IContinue reading “Good Habits #10 – These Are The Things That Try Ketovore’s Souls”

Exercise #10 – How To Burn Calories Acting Like A Lunatic

When I was younger, the family took a summer vacation to Canada.  Of course it was summer.  No native Georgians are going to brave the frozen wastes of Canada in the wintertime.  We visited Quebec and saw the historic sites of the old walled city.  We went to Toronto and went to the top ofContinue reading “Exercise #10 – How To Burn Calories Acting Like A Lunatic”
