No, its not the number of posts I write a week. No, its not the number of readers I have. (I wish!) Its the number of pounds I weigh, and its the lowest I’ve weighed since 2011.

I’ve not been as attentive as I should to my eating and exercise over the past couple of months due to stress, and so the recent drop I’ve experienced is a surprise to me. Still, I’ll take it. And the drop means I’m poised to go below 300 during my vacation, which will consist of hiking, backpacking, bike riding, and other outside activities. I expect an enormous calorie burn from backpacking in particular, and I have two, and possibly three, backpacking trips in the next three weeks.
