  • I knew I heard the aha sound of a miracle.

    • About to perform a lesser miracle at work, this one less along the lines of fish and loaves and more along the lines of stone soup.
      Dinner was steak (I've made better), shrimp (in some kind of over sweetened bourbon sauce), rice, mashed potatoes, broccoli and cheese, and a salad.
      Then we went to HEB and I picked up stuff for today's lunch, which is in the fridge. 1 carrot, 1 celery rib, 2 sausages, 3 oz 1 year cheddar, half zuke, half cuke, and 3/4 apple, all chopped into finger food.
      The we came home and attempted to tame the jungle. Choked the mower because the mower blade was duller than a butter knife. Found out that I do have an allergy to grass, as I started to swell with itchy eyes and sneezing. I probably wouldn't have bothered me if Geek hadn't insisted on going bagless to spread the seed and mulch, and then the mower clogged every 5 seconds. The mower had to work so much harder that it ran out of charge before I finished the front yard. (Normally I can get front and back without it starting to run down.) Popped a benadryl, aleve, and chlortab when I got back in, after my shower.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      • Grass allergies suck My feet and legs get itchy when I'm on grass "unprotected". What's your current "allergy blend" for drugs/supplements?

        • As I so rarely have true allergies, it's the aforementioned benadryl/ aleve/ chlortab mix.

          • I'm allergic to grass but not trees which is a strange mix apparently. I do take Benadryl at night to help.

            • Reason number 345547468 I love birthdays: we had porterhouses, shrimp, crab, and salad for dinner. Even primal friendly (aside from the corn syrup and sugar) dark chocolate gelato.

                    • Lifted again this morning: 5x5 60 lb squats, 5x5 50 lb overhead press, and 5x5 90 lb deadlift. I'm half tempted to try a PR deadlift for my body weight, just to see if I can.
                      Lunch was lettuce wrap leftovers: steak, shrimp, 1 year aged chedddar, and brown mustard. I LOVE a good, spicy brown mustard. That bright yellow stuff scares me.

                      • Today is cleaning, and off to see if I can scare up some shorts that fit (more of a hips/ waist/ ass/ thighs challenge, as I rarely do Daisy Dukes.)
                        I'm also experimenting with a new toy. The fitbit went through the washer, so I got a Jawbone Up (off ebay, for 2/3 the price, still in box.) Definitely more data. Kind of a bummer that it'll only sync with the phone (maybe the tablet, haven't checked yet) and that's the only way I can see my data, but that the only downside I've found so far. Not the biggest fan of their food part of the app.
                        Weight is back under 130, even eating a roll and a half yesterday. 128 and change.

                        • Today's weights: 5x5 65 lb squat, 5x5 45 lb bench press, 5x5 45 lb row.
                          Yesterday was FAther's Day/ Geek's birthday party at the in- laws. Steak, salad, and onion rings were eaten. Cake was had (a small sliver to be polite, and I picked off the "edible" paper and much of the frosting.) Hostages were exchanged.
                          The Up seems much more likely to overcalculate steps, to the point of being a good 20% higher than the fitbit. Dunno if it's overcalculating or the fitbit under calculated, though.

                              It won't sync with a computer? Like any computer?? What info does it give on the phone? I am looking at one of these but haven't gotten one yet (waiting on my stepmom to find the Amazon gift card she bought for me for graduation). Curious to see if it's worth it if it can't sync to a computer. My BodyMedia armband syncs to a computer but is soooo blatently obvious that it's being used b/c it's so big. Jawbone was going to be my secret.

                              • I'm experimenting to see if I can trick the app onto the computer and see what happens. If I csn force the app, it should read to the computer. As of now, there's no official program for it to talk to the computer. Its also picky about which phones it'll talk to, but not as picky as the website claims. Gives a lot more data than the fitbit.Light sleep vs deep sleep vs awake. Activity levels. An idle alarm, as well as an alarm to wake you during light sleep. I really like it.
