Ah, Saturday

The best 3-4 hours of the week are on deck. Within the hour I’ll be working up a sweat at the Muscatine Community Y. After that, I’ll head to Elly’s Tea & Coffee to hang out with my buddies. Of course, Elly’s will run out of coffee just as I order — but at least they always brew more!

I’m trying to decide if I want to weigh myself today. Some of my clothes seem to be fitting a bit better. But I’m afraid the scales will tell a different story.

Weighing in will probably be a game-time decision.

And then, after all that fun, I’m going to have to see if I can fix that damn back door.

On to it. Have a great Saturday.

Note at 10:30 a.m.: I weighed in and I’m down 4 pounds in two weeks.

In case anyone is counting, this little blog is now up to FOUR subscribers — and three of them are not my mom.

From the Web:

Trend stories in the New York Times sometimes strike me as suspect. It seems as if they stretch a little too far in identifying a trend. Or, it could just be that we’re not as hip on the west bank of the Mississippi River.

Whatever the case, this story is interesting:

The caveman lifestyle … involves eating large quantities of meat and then fasting between meals to approximate the lean times that his distant ancestors faced between hunts. Vegetables and fruit are fine, but he avoids foods like bread that were unavailable before the invention of agriculture.
