So up until May of this past year, I spent my entire life as a student. It was my identity, one that is still kind of odd not have anymore. As a student of 20 years, I have a sick obsession with being graded. I mean, how else are you supposed to check point what you are working on?
So now that I have declared my nerdom, let me explain how this applies. So I am working on dieting and creating a healthy lifestyle for myself. Obviously weighing myself let’s me know if I am up or down in weight. And losing weight is one thing, but it is not always hand in hand with being healthy. I think we all have learned about the dangers of being Skinny-Fat from Cosmo and the likes.
This is why I am currently loving calorie-count.com. It allows you to track your food, but it also grades each thing you put in your mouth based on it’s nutritional value. At the end of the day you get a grade. And call me nerdy, but I get really excited when I get an “Eating A” for the day. Since I am accounting for what I eat, it is helping me to continue to make better choices. Of course this is one of those things you have to make sure not to get obsessed with – I got a B+ yesterday, but it’s no biggie. I mean a B+ was curve in law school.
What nerdy tendencies do you have?
