As You May Have Noticed…

…that nice little plan I had for keeping a blog, to catalog my exercising and (hopefully) weight-loss program, didn’t exactly pan out. I suppose I’m not the most disciplined writer, that’s for damn sure, but in my defense I had a lot going on back then. In addition to the weight-loss program, I was also a …
