The scale’s got my number

Over the past 4.5 months, my fitness mentors, informal nutrition advisors, Team Sopherocious members & personal cheerleaders have all (wisely & rightly) advised me to ignore the scale. After all, weight-loss is only one of numerous ways to measure the effectiveness of a work-out regimen and/or healthy diet. But when Dr. Darling and I started …

USA-bound for the holidays

This will be the last post made on Swedish soil for a while. I’m headed to the Heartland of America to spend Christmas with my family and friends.

Whoever said “getting there is half the fun” was lying, Part 2

Greetings from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi where we are awaiting our final flight … this one on an African airline, Precision Air.
