It's almost mid-August, the garden is in full swing... well mostly.
Cucumbers are going great, as are the cabbage, onions and broccoli. The corn is a bit behind but nice and sweet and doing ok. The peppers are doing as my peppers normally do, slow until fall and then watch out. The beans would be great if I could keep the deer out (they unlike the rabbits don't seem to mind the cayenne pepper). The tomatoes on the other hand are another story. I've pruned back the growth twice and it's due for a third prunning, but the tomatoes are all just green green green. Not that I mind green, after all, I'm a Spartan fan and Irish... but dang... I'd like to see a little color in them soon!

I'm a cheater... at least I admit it. Tried to do what I was supposed to do and got to the point that I said "Forget it!". Been having some health issues that my doctor can't figure out so I've been banned from caffeine, alcohol, exercise, salt, etc... and I've done really well on it... since July 15th, then today I said enough of that and became Cheater Cheater! I had a piece of caramel filled dove candy, put salt on my deviled egg this morning and after work... yup... you guess it, I'm ignoring her "walk only" orders and putting a little jog into it here and there. So I don't listen very well... or at least not for long... but hey... I'm still avoiding alcohol! ~grin~
HI, I'M JAI AND I'M A CAFFEINE INJESTING, SALT ADDING EXERCISER!!!!!!!

Just heard the news that Farrah died today. Another icon from my youth is no longer with us and I've realized that I'm beginning to see the start of where I'm going to hear more about deaths of those near to me than births... another day older, another day wiser and another life no longer with us.
Her will to live and her battle was strong, but she's lost her fight, rest in peace Farrah!

Just finished another week at the gym I joined a little while ago and as part of the program I'm in, that means I hit another milestone to be weighed and measured. So I step on the scale and the numbers were moving in the right direction (which is good because I'm simply trying to maintain now). Then she pulls the little machine out that does my fat percentage and plugs in my numbers... after it does it's little test I find I'm down almost another 3 percent from my last set of numbers (about 4 weeks ago). Next comes the measuring tape. Here I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I was pleased with the results. Bust, calves and biceps stayed the same, waist, hips, abdomen, thighs all dropped several inches. I was pleased with my results and the staff member at the gym that had measured me congratulated me on my progress. I have to admit, I never thought that in 4 weeks I could see that much progess but it gives me more incentive to hit the gym, even if I've worked a 12 hour day!
