  1. Keto pizza: shredded mozzarella, parmesan, and italian seasoning with some pepperoni on top. Melted down until the bottom starts to brown. Awesome. Not one cheat for 8 days now - feels amazing to FINALLY get my head right. Been at 1500 calories or less every day, 20 carbs or less each day, zero beer or soda. Hope everyone else is having a good week.
  2. I soooo feel your pain Diana! Built a pergola to give the spa some shade. Found a pic of a design I liked and made my own version of it...but man, I is POOPED!!! On the plus side - I ate perfect all weekend with zero cheats. Cravings were a bit much but drinking gallons of water to stay hydrated in the heat seemed to help. Almost time for a cigar (sans Guinness) and let that hot tub (heat is turned off though!) do it's work.
  3. https://www.studyfinds.org/leaves-of-grass-views-of-greenery-from-home-work-help-reduce-harmful-cravings/ Well here's my problem! 😁 (Not many of those views in these parts, lol.)
  4. Good morning all, Pretty good start, down a bunch to 229 (that typical "first week" anomaly) and not one cheat. Not any real exercise either so that's a bummer, but I rationalize it saying: working outside in 110deg weather kind of compensates... Feel pretty good, I'm still a firm believer that processed sugar is mostly poison - and this past week without it has been better for my mood. Good to read everyone, have a great weekend!
  5. She's a pit terrier mix. Pure lover/lap dog - just a big goofy mutt.
  6. Thank you all for the kind "welcome backs", appreciate it. Finished up a fresh brisket last night so it should last me a week or two. Smoking meats is my new favorite hobby. There is absolutely nothing in the house I can cheat with - but so far the cravings for garbage hasn't really been a problem.
  7. Haha, that's funny - dog and wife doing well. Won't come into the hot tub though lol.
  8. Well hello all... I think I got my head in the right place and am feeling focused enough to stay on the wagon and get back to healthy habits. Lot's of excuses - but really it's just from being tired and lazy during many events: Moved across town, Dad battling cancer, Mom losing her memory, new meds for me, work is stupid busy, etc - just life in general. Monday I weighed in at 237 - heaviest I've been by far over the past 5 years. Going low carb/low calorie, 18/6 eating schedule with a goal of 200 by Thanksgiving. I know it sounds aggressive, but in the past that was about the rate things went. So eating is going well, next is getting the gym back into the schedule. Way too hot to ride or exercise outside (no more pool so that's not an option) so for now it's been working on the new-to-us (used) house. On a more positive note - went to Montana for 2 weeks to help out my MIL - she's pushing 80 and needed some painting and repairs done so that was good exercise, along with some side trips to Butte and Glacier Park. Gratuitous pics attached. Feels good to be back on track - look forward to learning who's new, who's still battling, etc.
  9. My nephew passing thru on his way to Yuma MAS. Was great to see him , if only for a quick lunch - been out of country for a while. Final approach: Much older than he! Not too complicated: A favorite - god bless these warriors!
  10. It was a SCT - had it on a pier in the backyard with a heavy canvas cover. They have those 6.3 screw-on focal reducers that helped with the FL. Now that I'm in the city the 8" doesn't get the use as much.
  11. I had a 12" Meade when I lived in very rural area - it was fantastic for deep sky use. Traded it in for an 8" so I could more comfortably move it around. Looking forward to your further efforts.
  12. 10th Anniversary vacation has commenced!
