No BS for Iron Bess

Is it too early to give an update on the new health regime happening at Kitpu Estates? Perhaps, but I have to report that so far (fingers crossed) it hasn't been too bad. I've opted to follow a low carb kick start diet to try and get some of the added weight off of Dora and Darren Domestica and really the only thing that is a tad bit difficult is breakfast without bread, cereal, or other types of carbs. Today was boiled eggs, red peppers, celery, cucumber, and a piece of bacon each. We both missed the toast. But if things work out that is a small price to pay for losing some of our jiggly parts, and not being in the slightest hungry.

I have my spreadsheets finished, broken down by days, short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals. I have a chart in the works, as well as a list of healthy ranges which both of us should be in. I am working on a menu for the next two weeks, and the recipes that go along with the meals. I know my BMI, my BMR, so I no longer have to BS myself.

And as on aside, the garage now has 3.5 walls done for siding. Woohoo! Although the last half will be a bit of a pain in the butt. A window, which is now housed in the Wookie Cave on the floor, still needs to be installed into that wall. Which means...cutting a big assed hole in the wall, putting in headers, prepping the wall for the window, then trying to figure out how to get the big assed window up onto the scaffold and into the hole without breaking it. (Oh and there is that tiny bit of work where the work bench, tool chest and a myriad of other crap has to be moved out of the way before any of this shit can be done.) But that's all.

  1. Don't they have people you can hire to do those things? blink blink.

    Glad your diet is going well. Len is looking scared because I've been going through books on gluten-free cookery, and menopausal cookery, and using words like "soy" and "vegetable protein."
