Are you done with politics?

Tonight has been a night full of election coverage and, while I’ve spent hours upon hours watching I realized…I’m bored. What better time, then, to update my blog as well as focus on something that is relatively within my control and something else that people hate to hear about: exercise? So, about a month ago, something ...

Dear Walmart

Dear Walmart, Honestly, I rarely go to your store for a cornucopia of delightful reasons. The main reason being that when I go into the store I come out feeling musty and dusty and like I need to take a shower.

Yesterday was a no good, very bad day. It didn’t start that way. It started just fine, well, as fine as a day can start when I’m on a 4 day caffeine induced headache can start. However, I’ve been getting my fitness on and eating well and I was convinced I could get rid of the ...

How can I calculate the calories in my exercise regimen? Or Wiener and I are working on our fitness.

I promised this wouldn’t turn into my weight loss blog, and I’m sticking with that plan. However, that doesn’t mean that you won’t hear about aspects of my journey. It’s a big part of my life right now, and, until it becomes second nature to me, it feels like an overwhelming aspect that is permeating ...
