CR-V Camper Conversion Part 6 is admittedly behind schedule. Hell, part 5 was over a month ago. What the hell have I been doing? Have I given up? Nah. I’ve been busy. There’s been a lot going on lately. Often, when I do find myself with a little time to spare, the weather isn’t playing

Unfortunately, there’s nothing new to report with diet check-in #11. My weigh-in this morning resulted in the same sad number as last week, which was an even 260 pounds. That does suck, but it could have been worse. It could have been higher. Honestly, under the circumstances, I’m surprised I haven’t just been ballooning up.

Diet Check-in #10 unfortunately comes with a bit of a setback. But wow, I nailed it. Last week I predicted that I’d not only lose ground again, but that I’d break 260. This morning, for my weekly weigh-in, I came in at 260 on the nose. I sound excited about that. Why? I’m gaining weight!

Who wouldn’t jump at the chance at mixing business and pleasure in St. Louis? This last weekend was WordCamp U.S. 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri. After getting the nod from my boss man, and along with another coworker, I signed right up. At first, I wasn’t crazy about giving up a weekend for work. But

Yeah, this wasn’t the best week. It’s been rough. I’m up a bit. What of it? I’ll probably be up even more next week. You gonna give me a hard time then too? Should I ignore you now or later? Kidding. Go ahead and give me shit. I deserve it. Weekly Weigh-in: 257.0 That’s right.

I’m adding this post to my “Grilling & Smoking” category. It was only on the grill for no more than two minutes, but I think that as long as the meat touched flame, even if for only a brief moment, then it should count. That’s my rule and I’m sticking to it. Okay, so I

Oh man, I blew it! I was so close to having a new low weekly weigh-in this week, but I went and blew it. Dammit, anyway I came in at 255.8 this morning. It’s definitely an improvement over the last couple weeks, and definitely a move in the right direction, but based on how it

Sadly, I’ve lost momentum and I must report that I’m losing ground. The workweek started out strong. It looked like it was going to be very much possible to come in at a new low weight today, but I’m afraid I fell victim to laziness and temptation the last couple days. Weekly Weigh-in: 259.2 No

Smoked Spiral Ham and Chicken Breasts on the Weber Smokey Mountain

To be clear, I know that ham and chicken are two different things. I also know that you know that, or at least I’m pretty sure you know that. I hope you know that. You know that, right? I am only bothering to mention it because it seems odd to me to see both things

I haven’t made a lot of progress lately. After having been out out of town for a weekend, it took me a while to catch up, and then the next free time I had was on the following weekend, and it was chilly and rainy, but despite that, I did manage to make a tiny
