Low carbs experiment
Thursday, September 14, 2017      1 comments

This is an interesting experiment. I've seriously reduced my typical carb intake, but not always consistently under 50 carbs/day. And I'm still in reduced calorie mode around 1,600 calories/day. I'm still plateaued around 207 lbs. The pl... Read more

Got nothing to say today. Just thinking to myself. Need to be more productive at work. Would like to see the scale moving down. Need to work on my apps for grad school. Want to have more energy after work. The low carb thing is goi... Read more
Quadratic formula!
Thursday, August 17, 2017      1 comments

How long has it been since I have used you? High school probably! Today's GRE Math question kicked my butt. Even though I looked at the solution, I don't have the quadratic formula in my back pocket (or brain). Need to study more.... Read more
Finding points on a line
Friday, August 11, 2017      1 comments

If you've been following my blog a while, you'll know that I took the GRE recently. My math score was weak, so I've been thinking about taking it again. Finding the midpoints of two lines: (a+b/2, c+d/2) The problem: There is a lin... Read more
The different kinds of friends
Friday, August 04, 2017      4 comments

I realize that I've been complaining about not having friend IRL and in my blog. And that may have been misleading because I wasn't specific. I'm yearning for those kinds of friends you had when you were younger...maybe in high school or maybe... Read more
No friends, my fault
Wednesday, August 02, 2017      3 comments

I've been complaining about having no local friends for a while now. And the truth is that it's my fault. I have joined a club, taken exercise classes, talked to people in public situations...but I haven't done more to reach out to individual ... Read more
My life in DC
Tuesday, August 01, 2017      0 comments

Not DC proper, but about 10 miles out and around the capital. Where I live used to actually be part of DC, but changed over time. And now I live in a different county south of the White House. I was mostly living my dream. Working in a f... Read more

The last two days have been interesting. Monday - everything's going right for my eating plan. I have it all planned out. Fire alarm. Ice cream truck with free ice cream (sponsored by our maintenance company). I'm standing around with nothi... Read more
Countdown to vacation
Wednesday, July 05, 2017      2 comments

Traveling for work later this month, so I put four days of vacation on top of it. I prefer to put the vacation days at the back end, but it worked better to have them at the front this time. We are going to Orlando. Disneyworld here we co... Read more
Experimenting with keto recipes
Wednesday, June 28, 2017      3 comments

Reading a lot about keto, trying keto recipes, but not committing 100% yet. There are carbs everywhere! I love looking at what's trending - I don't always agree with it/like it. But it's fun to see what's the latest thing. And sometime... Read more
Dinner success
Friday, June 23, 2017      0 comments

Yesterday before coming home from work I had logged my breakfast and lunch. Then I looked for low carb options that would fit in my calorie range for dinner. I knew that I wanted to go out to dinner, but needed a plan. I found that plantains ... Read more
80 Food/20 Exercise?
Wednesday, June 21, 2017      3 comments

If that's the ratio, then why am I still plateaued? I'm frustrated. The good news is that I know what needs to be done here. 1) make sure I'm tracking my food correctly. It's easy enough to forget to track something here or there. 2) in... Read more
Great Family Meeting last night
Tuesday, June 20, 2017      2 comments

I like to call our budget talks a family meeting. And last night, it went GREAT! I had prepared some scenarios of what would happen with our spending if we did this or that. And I wanted to update our assets spreadsheet to see where we stand ... Read more
Boston marathon Sparker article
Monday, June 19, 2017      1 comments

Just reading the article about the Sparker who ran the Boston marathon twice. He suggested looking back a year ago to compare how you're doing now. With the Spark people blog, I was able to do exactly that. A year ago, I was overeating at... Read more
Is plateau broken?
Thursday, June 15, 2017      3 comments

I was weighing in at 211 nearly every day for months. A day here and there, I'd weigh higher or lower. Since Steve (hubs) got firmly on board about two weeks ago, I've been down to 209 for those 2 weeks. I'm ready to say the plateau is br... Read more
