Yesterday afternoon I had a fantastic HIIT cardio workout. This is week #2 of my cut, so I increased the duration of my session by 4 minutes (intervals were kept the same). As the workout progressed, I actually started feeling stronger and faster. My heart rate monitor is broken (I need to order another one), so I watched my RPMs. On every “100%” interval I was not satisfied unless my RPMs were higher than the last. This was an excellent challenge, and it sure kept things interesting. For a look at my planned HIIT progression (and a discussion of HIIT in general), please see my January 7, 2011 blog.

As soon as I got off work I worked on the JSF web site until I went to bed. It was an extremely productive evening! Here are a few new screenshots w/ descriptions…

The recipe section is a huge improvement over the current site. Recipes can be browsed by Category (entrĂ©es, soups & salads, breakfast dishes, desserts, etc) or Main Ingredient (beef, poultry, seafood, vegetarian, etc) . For example, here’s how browsing the EntrĂ©es looks.

This is how a typical recipe will look. Note that you can get a printer-friendly version of the recipe (pretty much every page on the site has this functionality) by clicking the “Print This Recipe” icon.

An anonymous 10-star rating system has been implemented for all blogs, articles, recipes and most other posts (to prevent abuse you must be a registered user and logged in). Also note that the latest forum threads are shown in real-time in the always-visible sidebar to the right. You can also quickly bookmark, email or share (“Share / Save”) pretty much every page, article, recipe or post with practicably every media and social networking site on the Internet.

There is a robust nested comment system. Registered users can comment on pretty much anything on the site (blogs, articles, recipes and so on), and can also reply to other users’ comments. You’ll note that there is a simple and anonymous “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” rating system for each comment (to prevent abuse you must be a registered user and logged in to rate a comment). Also, check out the cool Ajax-based “Browse Blog Archives” widget in the sidebar.
