Delicious Things Are Bad

By |

Today the line at Tim Hortons was unacceptable. This forced a shift in our morning strategy, which resulted in a stop at our local Starbucks, which was bursting at the seams with what seemed like all the Bros in Buffalo.

I attempted to order an egg and cheese on an english muffin, which is what i […]

Do You Do Sports?

A majority of adults played sports when they were younger, but most do not play anymore. While only one in four adults (25%) currently play sports, almost three in four adults (73%) aged 30+ played sports when they […]

Chipotle Every Day

By |

Making the rounds on the internet today is a story of a guy in California who has eaten Chipotle every day for 153 days in a row. That is a lot of burritos. Is it bad that I am slightly jealous of his diet? I mean, that just sounds delicious. My favorite thing though is on his […]

We spent the first half of the day with Jon’s parents at the […]

By |

After reading Ellie’s contribution yesterday about her desire to adjust her lifestyle to accommodate healthier choices, I have been inspired to share what I’ve been up to since I dropped off the face of this blog. A few things have happened. I had a mild panic attack during a 7-mile training run before I decided […]
