Revival

I have revived an old Twitter account… first time I have used it in over 3 years. @ZoyxTunes is now reporting songs that I play via Google Music on my android devices. This Twitter account is also posting my weight whenever I step on my new Withings weight scale.

I am using the Tweet My Music android app for the music posting. It is an IFTTT recipe that is doing the weight posting.

I’m not really dieting. Skipping dinner is the only diet-like activity that I am doing, but I suspect my calorie count is still fairly high.

Annual Weigh-in.

ARGH!

2009:  201.5 lbs
2010:  192.5
2011:   185.6
2012:  183.2
2013:  203.5
2014:  207.9

No, this is not a good trend. The goal for this year is to be down to that 2010 weight. I would really like to be BMI 25 (184 lbs), but that seems to be too hard for me to maintain.

The 2013 Weigh-in

I have a nearly complete plot of my weight dating back to May 2008, the day I purchased Wii Fit. So I know how much I weighed on the first of the year, going back to 2009. Here are the numbers:

2009:  201.5 lbs
2010:  192.5
2011:   185.6
2012:  183.2
2013:  203.5

Whoops! 2012 was not a good year for weight maintenance. The move to Alaska and the stress from family problems and the house took its toll. So, of course I am going to be dieting to start the year. Hopefully I can get below 190 by spring. Although if someone knows a one week diet that loses 15 lbs without cutting off a limb, let me know.

Rosa Parks Featherlite Peanut Butter Pancakes

In honor of International Pancake Day, I wanted to make pancakes for lunch. Since it was Black History Month, why not Rosa Parks featherlite peanut butter pancakes.

I didn’t have all the ingredients, so I did some improvising. Used wheat flour instead of white flour, and almond butter instead of peanut butter. Then I used dried egg whites instead of real eggs. That last substitution is not recommended. The final product fell apart easily. If I remember my home economics, eggs act as a binding agent. The dried egg whites failed me here.

The result was quite yummy. Also quite filling. I was only able to eat half of the 16 small pancakes I made. So I will be eating the remainder tomorrow.
