A week. It had to be Thanksgiving week, though, right? My blood sugar took a significant spike, ending the week at the highest fasting level I’ve ever seen: 199. I began a new regimen of aged garlic, 2400 milligrams daily, which should have only little benefit to my blood sugar, but more for my cardiovascular … Continue reading Six Months: M1:W2:D1
It’s the day after Thanksgiving, a day after binging on sugary treats for breakfast and carbs throughout the day. Also beer. Lots of beer. It’s Thanksgiving, man. You can’t not indulge.

I had three vodka tonics with sugary cranberry juice before bed, just like most personal trainers will recommend for those trying to lose weight and control their diabetes. I feel no guilt.

I was in bad shape then, having not exercised … Continue reading Six Months: M1:W1:D2
After two years of relative health and financial ease following my divorce, I’ve hit a wall. My health has fallen to shit and I’m dead-ass broke. I’m battling an infection that sprung from the base of a root canal procedure I had done a year ago and my 10-year-old dog snapped her right Achilles tendon. … Continue reading Six Months: Hello from the bottom.

That review of the Major Taylor book is going to be delayed. Some dummy forgot to check my pants pockets before he washed and dried my glasses, so now I’m awaiting a new pair, rush ordered. Meantime, I’m squinting my way through life and there’s no way I can sit and read for hours without … Continue reading Why Are You All So Blurry?
