Vegan Today 6

Day 001 2013 07 13 BMI 27.3 kg/m^2 Blood Glucose (14 day avg.) 135 mg/dl
Day 040 2013 08 21 BMI 26.0 kg/m^2 Blood Glucose (14 day avg.) 107 mg/dl

These numbers are quite good.  Which reminds me, yet again, to not let “the best be the enemy of the good.”  On one level, I am building the body I will be next year.  You can do likewise.  On another level, I am building the society I want to live in next year.  So are you. 


Vegan Today 5

Day 001 2013 07 13 BMI 27.3 kg/m^2 Blood Glucose (14 day avg.) 135 mg/dl
Day 036 2013 08 17 BMI 26.1 kg/m^2 Blood Glucose (14 day avg.) 107 mg/dl

My BMI goal is 22.0; at this rate only another 126 days to go. Wish me luck.

I was wondering, if this blog were to have a bumper sticker what would it say?  Not that this blog needs a sticker for its nonexistent bumper.  But I need at least one more post today, so how about:

Stop the Sixth Great Extinction!

What?  There are five mass extinctions, already?  Are we supposed to stop the sixth from coming?  Or is it happening now and we have to stop it?  How?
Yes it is a very bad sticker – unclear, polysyllabic, urgent, yet dull.  A slight improvement:

End the Sixth Great Extinction!

But now a light begins to dawn.  Since extinction events and geological epoch boundary layers are associated the sticker can be re-written as:

End the Anthropocene!

Much better, even though it may only end up as graffiti on my barn.

Bumper Stickers

Carbon-free Friday

My Friday will not be carbon-free.  I must go to work and do many other things that increase my carbon footprint.  However:

  • I will not eat meat
  • I will not buy anything
  • I will go to bed when the sun sets.

Perhaps you will join me.  Now I must leave.  It is time to ravage my vegetable brethren.


Vegan Today 4

I have been enjoying a most clement summer in the Sierra of late and consequently have not been pounding a keyboard.  My deepest apologies.  

This blog is now enforcing a 15 minute / day posting policy to encourage more frequent posts.  The format for vegan today data is now streamlined, thusly:

Day 001    2013 07 13    BMI 27.3 kg/m^2    Blood Glucose (14 day avg.)  135 mg/dl
Day 029    2013 07 13    BMI 26.2 kg/m^2    Blood Glucose (14 day avg.)  115 mg/dl

Thanks to all who like.
