Hi Hoe Hi Hoe



Week two of the new lifestyle diet is nearly done. I should be down anywhere from 6~8 lbs. The weekend was tough - I've been trying to cut the carbs way back but when the wife left some rice cakes unguarded I fell on them like a starving lion - I couldn't stop gobbling! Before I knew it they were all gone! But afterward I was okay. I can't blow them completely out of my diet so I will make sure to have them in controlled doses going forward. Because of my lack of self control I passed on the bibibap Korean supper I had planned. 

The other benefits of the diet seem to be offset by the cravings from time to time. It is all too easy to forget I don't get stomach upsets anymore, my joints are moving much better, and my back aches are starting to abate. I don't look like that...whatever it is in the pic above... but I am not far behind him either! I still have a long, long way to go.

  1. What kind of diet are you on? I need to lose weight and get into better shape so I can walk the distance.

  2. I'm basically doing the Canada Food Guide with the protein, fats and carbs cut way back, Jack. I personally get killed on bread - I could eat sammiches, toast, bagels, sob - garlic toast... by the metric tonne.

    This morning, when we got back from Long Range Dawg Patrol... usually my back is screaming... but today I hardly noticed it. The secret is to always be eating - just eat the right stuff.

  3. Bernie Sanders has aged considerably. Fund raising is a bitch when you have to spread your legs like margarine on toast. Just sayin.
