These puppies have saved my diet. I don’t know why my diet plan forbids fruit, yet allows me tomato–which is technically a fruit. I’m not arguing, especially because I get to eat my favorite vegetable that’s really a fruit. I … Continue reading
Long day today. Every summer, I promise the young miss a day at some park of amusement. Today was the day to brave 106 central Iowa HX and smash my brains on roller coasters. Maintaining my diet was in one … Continue reading
The good counsel of diet coaches is to place a number of goals on the journey of loss. I’ve tried to bolster personal motivation by having several: lose the first pound ten pounds the first belt hole get to 200, … Continue reading
I thought I had given away all my old trousers. I found a small stack tucked away in the back of my closet. They should’ve gone to the GoodWill or the parish rummage sale years ago. Amazingly, I can now … Continue reading
The losing continues. I’m still weighing in at minus twenty-two pounds–the same as six days ago. I think Monday’s weigh-in was affected by the exercise I got while mowing the yard. My usual form of exertion is walking or yoga … Continue reading
Mowed the grass for the first time in two weeks. I have an old pair of grass-stained pants that were a tight fit the last time I did yard work. They fit well today. It’s not really accurate to weigh … Continue reading

Something different than last week’s experience: I’ve begun my summer project of losing fifty pounds. By the time the students return for Fall semester, my plan is to be back at my college weight. I’ve shared with a number of … Continue reading
I don’t know about you, but I love grilled sandwiches. I’ve been feeling that I’ve lost the creative edge in my cooking these days. After a full evening of meetings at the parish center tonight, I came home to make … Continue reading
My wife had an opportunity to visit a friend back in Kansas City, and assist in the care of some pets. She’s been gone the whole week. It sure will be good to have her home again Monday. Meanwhile the … Continue reading
On the Food Network, Emeril Lagasse and Rachael Ray have both done shows featuring “comfort food,” well loved recipes that pamper the eater with tastes well within the box: spaghetti and meatballs, macaroni and cheese, chicken soup–stuff like that. The … Continue reading
Time to plan those meatless family meals: Lent is very near. Today’s CNS feature tells a bit of it. I usually have one meatless meal with my family each week. Lately, I’ve tried to move that to Friday. I did … Continue reading
Want a bowl of hot soup? It’s a good soup day in central Iowa. This morning, I woke up, got out of bed, and before a ran a comb across my head, I noticed whiteness outside–lots of it. We’ve received … Continue reading
