Tuna turned out great; Vacation plans.

Tuna steaks may be my new favorite fish! Last night’s Yellowfin tuna was the first time I’ve ever had “real” tunafish. It was incredible – nothing like what comes in a can. I marinated the steaks in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, fresh chopped garlic, ground pepper, and dry mustard. After they marinated for about an hour, I broiled the steaks for about 5 minutes on each side. I’ll adjust the… [Read more]

Tilapia, Tuna, Catfish and Orange Roughy.

Lisa and I are kind of burnt out on shrimp and salmon, so we’re trying some new seafood this week. Monday I made blackened Tilapia and it was excellent! That was the first time I’ve had Tilapia, and I thought it was a very good fish. Very healthy, too. Blackening seafood is a smoky affair: I had to open up a bunch of windows and the back door and the house still filled with smoke,… [Read more]

I need a vacation; JSF shop to close?

I need a vacation. I’ve been involved in a number of difficult (yet rewarding!) projects for the past few months and the pace has been relentless. I’ve been working 55-60 hours per week just on my day job, and another 20 hours per week doing JSF projects. I’m feeling totally burned out and badly in need of some down time to recharge my batteries. It’s time to pause and take a few breaths! If I… [Read more]

Overslept again.

I guess I’m still catching up on my sleep, because I overslept by almost two hours this morning. The dogs didn’t even wake me up to feed them at 7:00 AM, so obviously the world is ending today (Loki and Turtle have internal feeding clocks that rival the accuracy of atomic clocks). I’m still half asleep, but I’d better go get on the elliptical while I have time. Have a great day!

I got some sleep; Cutting progress update; House projects.

I slept like a dead man last night, and boy did I needed it. I went to bed at 10:30 last night and slept until 8:00 this morning. I woke up once, but fell right back asleep. I’m still feeling a little run down and groggy this morning, but nothing like I have the past few days. Another week, and another quarter of an inch off my waist and thighs! I remember when I was… [Read more]

I need sleep.

I’ve got so much going on in my life right now (mostly very positive stuff) that I’ve had trouble sleeping the past few days. I’ve been having trouble falling asleep, and then I’ve been waking up around 4:00 AM and can’t fall back asleep. It’s amazing how active my mind is at four in the morning! I’ve got a bag of mental tricks that I use to help me fall asleep quickly if I wake… [Read more]

No JSF Summer Gatherings this year.

Sorry everyone, I just can’t make the JSF Summer Gathering happen this year. Due to a couple different issues that are up in the air, I simply can’t commit to a date this far out. I’d hate to plan the whole thing and then have to back out at the last minute, and that’s a very real possibility. I probably won’t have a good idea of when I could do it until mid-June, and obviously… [Read more]

Early cheat meal, but no water weight gain?

I was working late last night and didn’t have time to cook, so I had my weekly cheat meal 2 days early. I’m surprised that I only gained 2 tenths of a pound in water weight. That’s never happened before after a bunch of pepperoni pizza; I always gain 2-4 pounds the day after a big cheat meal. Weird! Maybe my scale just sucks. 🙂 I’ve got to be at my desk by 8:15 this… [Read more]

Ack, I slept in this morning without meaning to. I went to bed at 10:00 last night with the goal of getting up at 6:00 this morning, but I wound up sleeping until 7:00! It’s been raining really hard all night, and I guess the sound of the rain and the dark skies fooled my internal clock (I never set an alarm). I’d better get on the elliptical while I still have time. Have a… [Read more]

All areas of forum opened to everyone; Water loss.

The main section of the forums (“Main Fitness Forums”) have always been open to all users, even unregistered users (visitors). The lower forums (“Other Forums”), have always required a free account to view the posts. As of this morning, I’ve decided to open the entire forum up to all users, even those who are not members. Of course you’ll still need to be a registered user to post, but the entire forum is now available… [Read more]
