- Pittsburgh, PA, United States
- I am in my 40's, and on a quest for better, healthier living -- for me and my family. I have lost 44 lbs and hope to lose more, but my blogging goal is not to gloat about what I have lost, or obsess about what I haven't. I will keep blogging about weight loss, but also plan to chat about other things that interest me; including,improving life for my son who has learning disabilities, the human brain, meditation, Zen and Buddhism and their application to healthy living, books I have read or have waiting on my shelf/Nook to read, what I want to be when I grow up .... basically Life, the Universe and Everything. I have a PhD but that doesn't mean I know more about life than anyone else. In fact it may mean I know less. I am interested in hearing from other people, especially those who also agree they don't know it all. Knowing it all is boring! Do I believe in magic? Not the kind in Harry Potter (although wouldn't that be awesome!), but I believe there is more to us, and this world, than we currently understand or accept, and we have the power to make our lives much more than ordinary.

Week in Review
All in all, not a bad week. I will only get 5x exercise in, instead of 6. Bad planning on my part, as I forgot I was going out to dinner on Friday, and took a rest day on Monday. I was going to double up on exercise today, but the truth is my body is tired, and I don't want to push it too much. I tracked my food on myfitnesspal, and while my calories were ok, my sugar was too high. I have a better plan for the coming week, and am excited about it. Aiming for 80 g protein per day, and no more than 45 g sugar. I lost 3 lbs this past week, but hard to be revved up about that when I am still 11 above my lowest weight. Still, no choice but to move forward from where I am.
