Why Game of Thrones is ruining A Song of Ice and Fire

For years now I have delicately danced around major plot points in the ASOIAF universe. Every situation where the TV series or books come up starts with: “Where are you? What’s the last thing that happened?” Everyone’s entry point into the series has been disparate and I so cherished my times getting shocked by each turn of the page that I want, desperately, to preserve that experience for every that I talk to.

This post contains spoilers up to the Season 6, Episode 3

Physical Fatness: Update 2

So I thought it would be good to check in on January and February progress on increasing my activity and reducing that all important statistic: fatness (weight).

I’m down 10 lbs since the beginning of the year, which isn’t as fast as I’d like. It’s a little under a pound a week, and my goal was to be in-between 1-1.5lbs if possible. I still need some work on dietary restriction but how am I doing on activity?
