Consistent, sustainable weight loss. Fast, and easy to prepare meals to keep you from falling off the bandwagon.
After following the Scarsdale Medical Diet (SMD) for a little while, I discovered a way to make this diet even easier to follow. Most of the food in this diet (especially for the breakfasts and the lunches) require very little preparation, so you can put them together in minutes right before you leave for work.

Yes, you’re on a diet. …But don’t forget to enjoy yourself too.
I don’t really like fresh vegetables or fruit, but this diet has helped me appreciate them more.
Dieters follow the Scarsdale Medical Diet (SMD) strictly for two weeks, and during which fast weight loss is promised (7-15 pounds). After the two weeks, you switch to “Keep Trim” for two weeks, where you plan your own menus. “Keep Trim” permits additional foods, and more calories. You repeat this cycle until you reach your goal.

Lurking in the shallow end of the deep thought pool.
If you came here looking for well-written, well-thought out posts, you’re in the wrong place. I’m just an average person looking for a place to post my random, sometimes half-baked and disjointed musings. About This Blog »
I came across this interview with Peterson last month, and as a year-long fan of his, this is one of the best interviews I’ve listened to. This is a good video to share with people who’ve never heard of Jordan Peterson before, because they’ll get a nice primer of his body of work. It does a good job of encapsulating the arc of Peterson’s thoughts over his career (especially recently) and the interviewer does a great job of asking timely and well-articulated questions that help Peterson explain a complicated idea to those that might not be familiar.

Maybe someday I’ll understand what it all means.
I don’t often have memorable dreams. Most of the time, my dreams are actually really strange or disjointed and make no sense at all. They’re so jumbled up, I don’t really remember them well. Other times, I have dreams that are not fit to share on my personal blog, if you know what I mean… 😉 Still, others times—I have a dream like this one, which I will share with you.

Acknowledge the idea, and then let it go.
So many ideas, so little time. Sometimes my mind feels awhirl with ideas of things I want to do, blog posts I want to write, or cool projects that would be fun to work on. I only have 168 hours in a week though, and I thought that one way I could ease my mind and at least acknowledge my ideas is to just write them down and move on. Hence, this post–where ideas go to die.
Ahh… I feel better already. Continue reading “Where Ideas Go to Die”
Being humble about what one claims to know goes a long way. If someone asks you a question and you don’t know the answer, you say “I don’t know.”
