Addicted to… Apple fritters?

Seriously, how in the world did I get addicted to apple fritters? Yes I love them, and yes they bring back nice memories of stopping at The Donut Shop in Trinidad between classes and having coffee and donuts. Lately, though, I haven’t been able to get them off my mind! Everywhere I go, I want an apple fritter! Target and King Soopers sell a four-pack of apple fritters that they keep on a shelf in the bakery. Unfortunately, having access to four apple fritters means I’m gonna eat four apple fritters.

That’s not good, man. Not good at… Read more

Add this to the walk from the parking lot out to the field, and you have at least a few extra minutes of exercise than I would’ve done otherwise. Anything that moves me forward! On a site note: I’m… Read more



Almost one year later…

My last post was almost a year ago. I was actually considering waiting until September, so I could officially go a full year between posts! That’s the kind of thing that leads to inertial stand-still, though, so it’s definitely a Bad Idea. And so here I am. 48 weeks later, a whole lot heavier. My unofficial weigh-in today put me at 326 lbs. I gained back all of the weight that I lost last year, but I completely expected to do that. I only lost the weight because I was forced onto a liquid diet for two months for medical reasons. If that hadn’t been the case, I would be right about the same weight I am now. On the plus side, I guess that means I’ve been maintaining my weight. On the negative side, it means I’ve been maintaining my… Read more
