My rainbow collection of Saucony Jazz Original retro running shoes

My favorite running shoe is still Saucony Jazz

No matter what I try I always fall back in love with my Saucony Jazz Original running shoes. That’s not true, actually.

My personal keto diet mistake: overeating my calorie deficit

Rule One of the Ketogenic Diet: if you want to lose weight: absolutely only eat when actually hungry (don’t let thirst fool you).

Three-hundred-and-twelve-pounds! When did that happen?

As I have begun to share over in shop healthy, cook healthy, eat healthy, be healthy, I really let myself go. I might have been wearing my fancy new Fitbit Surge but I haven’t been rising to any of all the occasions that have been offered to me as a result of being up to my […]

chris abraham at 300 pounds on a 4 mile run

Shop healthy, cook healthy, eat healthy, be healthy

I lost my way back in October and gained a lot of weight instead of losing it. I may well be above 300 pounds, which I plan to check this evening (I just ate lunch).   So, instead of losing weight, a series of injuries and a little “eating fills a hole in me” sadness […]
