Week 15: When the #$%^ to Fit in a Workout?!

I've decided to make a bold move. I blotted out two hours from my schedule in the middle of the day. I set Outlook for "Out of Office" during these chunks of time and it took about two weeks for everyone who needs to schedule time with me to settle and react. Today I remembered to bring a comb. It's the little things you need to plan for.

Week 14: It's Only One Pound but I'll Celebrate it

So it occurs to me, how does one celebrate a small achievement like losing a pound? There are always a steady stream of stories about people who continue to endure day after day with so much more pain and suffering. And here I am, some schmuck who -- wooptie doo -- lost one freakin' pound.

Though Toronto's mayor has lost 16 pounds in week two of his program, dieting only helps short-term.

Cutting back calories and increasing activity addresses the symptoms of obesity -- not its causes.
