#NewBlogPost: Medicated Goo: Eight Months In: The Melting Mask

It started a few months ago; but I was not conscious of the fact. In the absence of heat, with the passing of seasons something sinister was occurring; slowly but surely. It may have been imperceptible at first, but as time passed it became more pronounced and identifiable — my mask was melting ...

#NewBlogPost: Vegan Gains: The Journey Continues

I’m not a poser by nature; using the British slang: “One who attempts to appear to others as something they are not, especially by their manner of dress; a charlatan.” So taking a photo — like the one you see — is not something I’m comfortable with. But to be able to see my “vegan gains” I need reference photos. As much as I work out now, and as much as my body is changing, I still sometimes think with my 275 pound “fat brain” ...

#NewBlogPost: Vegan In Training

Vegan in training. Yup that’s what I am—on a few levels. I became a total vegan just a few months ago. From that aspect: I’m a freshly minted vegan. I had been working towards vegetarian for a while. I started eliminating eggs, milk, and other dairy. The next thing was meat. That wasn’t too hard because by that time I was only eating chicken for the protein.

It was 34 years ago today The Clash played Asbury Park Convention Hall for 3 days, May 28, 29, 30 1982!

What an amazing weekend that was! Ms Brenda Siegelman was there as was Charlie Maraia. We had us some fun, and the Clash ... some great shows! Plus the Clash rented out the Amusement Casino for a party after that last show. Now THAT was a Memorial Day weekend!
And shortly thereafter Mr Maraia & I left for a month long vacation. It started with a week in London & Dover. Then onto a hitchhiking adventure through France; from Paris to southern France & back to Paris. Those were some amazing times!

Of course you can read more at my blog & see the photos from the shows & the party. Click below ...

March is my anniversary month!!!

On March 20, 2012 I met dietician & Take Shape For Life health coach, Janet Blum. On March 27, 2012 I started my TSFL journey. I decided to take control of my life and my health, with her help and TSFL.

It's now 4 years later and I've kept the weight off because TSFL is not just a diet. It taught me to live healthy, eat healthy, think healthy, and stay healthy.

Life is full of choices. I chose health!

This is my before & WAY after. 😊

#NewBlogPost: Medicated Goo : Three Weeks In

Color me amazed! Color me purple, pink, orange or any other shade you care to. I’m three weeks into being chemically altered, by this “Medicated Goo” called Wellbutrin; more correctly the generic Bupropion. This Medicated Goo is good for you; well … for me. It may not be a homegrown recipe, but I’ll take it — daily for as long as I need to. Amazing what three weeks of a mind altering substance can do to — and for — a being’s wellbeing.

#NewBlogPost: Chemically Altered - Or How I Learned To Love The Pill

It’s been a long hard road, with too many twists, turns and setbacks. But I hit that road and I hit it hard; visited many a medico along the way — with not much to show, and little comfort on those cold, gray, dreary stretches of that godforsaken New Jersey highway. Granted, I did find a few good eggs and traveling companions along the way: Dr Berman, and Dr Kalyouseff. Then again — some of those eggs — were pretty damn cracked and repugnant! Though with all the investigating, poking, prodding, and tests, not much insight was gleaned; yet I traveled on.

‪#‎NewBlogPost‬: joe streno by charlie maraia

Been posting a lot of ancient history lately. Could be that my 59th birthday is a day away. Could be that a lot of people have recently left this planet for parts unknown. Maybe I’m just bored. I’m certainly vain enough. Whatever the reason, I had to post these photos of me — joe streno — as photographed by Charlie Maraia circa 1982. Charlie was working as an assistant for a photographer in Manhattan at the time. I befriended Charlie when we were both attending CW Post on Long Island. Charlie and I did many things together, including traveling to England and France after we graduated Post.
