One of the benefits of a blog is quick accessibility to your recipes.
Except when you’re looking for something that you thought you posted but never did. The plan was to toss together a quick Greek Salad from The Pioneer Woman and grill some chicken. So the yogurt marinade came to mind but where was it? The last time I remember seeing the recipe it was scribbled on a piece of scrap paper that more likely than not got thrown away.
For an Old Guy Playing With Technology I sometimes surprise myself.
I actually remembered to take a picture and save it to my online drafts folder.
A little over three months ago I attended a wedding. When the pictures from a number of sources started showing up I noticed something that disturbed me.
“Who is that old fat guy?”
It was time to get serious, again. The last time I got serious the scales tipped over 370 pounds. I say “over” because I stopped weighing myself when the scale hit 370. I was twenty years old. So I got serious and lost over 200 pounds. After nine months of employing strict lifestyle changes I got down to 163.
Pictures don’t lie (unless they were Photoshopped). I needed to drop a few pounds.
At weigh-in this morning the scale showed 187. I’m 13 pounds lighter than I was at the wedding.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre | The falcon cannot hear the falconer | Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold | Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world | The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere | The ceremony of innocence is drowned | The best lack all conviction, while the worst | Are full of passionate intensity. -- W.B. Yeats, The Second Coming
