Lake McDonald Boat House
From two months ago while in Glacier National Park. No sugar.


Less than a month ago i weighed 156.5.

This morning it’s 161.5.

Those 12 days in Pennsylvania had my sugar intake spiral out of control.

This has been an on-going challenge now for nearly a month.

The results speak for themselves.

i am in desperate need of a motivating goal.

Each day i “promise” to stop, i find a creative and innocent “reason” to wait until tomorrow to begin in earnest.

PS. i hate sugar.

Just wish what I do didn’t look so easy and natural to the folks observing from afar.

Portion control is our individual responsibility. Learning to manage this is simple – put everything on your plate you are going to eat. Period.

And we should remind ourselves to get outside today – nature deficit disorder is real. Is it our job to reduce it?
