Minor update

So yeah… went to Dave’s for pseudo-halloween (11/3). It was a fun party but devolved into a bunch of drugged-out teens, so we left around 1 or 2. Guess they kept partying till 6am. Ah, youth.

Sarah and I went as American Gothic, thanks to Sarah’s quick thinking and owning of overalls.

Sarah went with me to DSW and helped me pick out new shoes!
They are Børn Radshus…

They were pretty expensive ($80, the most I’ve ever spent on shoes) but they seem pretty comfy so far.

I’ve started watching what I eat again, I had gotten up to around 153 pounds.
I’m using CalorieKing rather than WeightWatchers… it’s a more complete view, since it is based on the FDA values, but also more complex than WeightWatchers… but I like lots of data to look at…

This morning I weighed in at 148.5, so seems to be working. My target is to get down around 140-145. Right now I’m eating right but need to exercise more.

One thing I noticed from looking at CalorieKing is sugar intake.
Nutritional recommendations are for no more than 40 or 50 grams of sugar a day, which is very difficult based on American foods. A small container of yogurt has 24g of sugar!
But now that I’m aware of it, I’ve been eating a lot less sugar. I haven’t been under 40g a day, but I’ve been under 70g, and down around 50g on some days.

  1. Hey- nice shoes! It’s important to have good things on your feet. When I was growing up, I wore a lot of hand-me-down clothes from my infinite number of cousins, but my mom always bought me new shoes- she thought wearing someone else’s shoes was bad for your feet. Probably right. I paid $80 for a pair of shoes a few years ago. Not really outrageous if you like them and they fit well. Now all you need is something good to go hiking in. You don’t want to wear those on the trail, but you definitely need something that won’t give you so man blisters! Your poor footsies!
    love J.

  2. Rad shoes! hehe…

    also, I look worried up there. I guess farmers get that way. Ah well…shoulda been a farmer I guess. I’m so good at worrying!
