May was a difficult month! I did well during my trip to Tulsa but really fell off the wagon after I got home. Flying always makes my back hurt because economy class seats aren’t designed for big guys with wide shoulders, offer little lumbar support, and I…

Pointless endeavor. Android's support for IPv6 on WiFi is abysmal. Why stand up a brand new network based on legacy tech?

I’m out of town at my daughter’s graduation this weekend and coping with a keti/low-carb diet while travelling.  I quickly learned that the past 2-3 weeks quickly adapted my body to a very low-carb diet.  I leaped off the wagon Friday while travelling and paid for it handsomely.  My body didn’t like having a bunch of carbs poured suddenly poured into it at all.  Since then, I’ve limited the carbs and focused on healthy low-carb meal options and I’ve felt much better.  I can’t wait to get back home and back on the Keto Chow again, strange as that may sound.  My body likes the KC and it’s easy to stay on a diet using it.

Keto Chow day two went pretty well. Woke up hungry, which is normal. My bg at breakfast (7:50AM) was 156, which is a bit higher than I like. Don't know why. Had lunch at 1:00PM and was hungry again by then. Bg was 128, much better. Was hungry again by 5:00PM when I left work. Had my supper meal at about 6:15PM and my Bg then was 64 (whoah, low!), but was not feeling the effect of it. I think I was seeing the last of the glucagon in my system getting used up. Stayed hungry after supper so I snacked on some beef jerky to try to take the edge off. Eventually the hungry's subsided.

I expect I'm starting into ketosis and the next few days will be rough while my body adjusts. Ordered a second flavor of Keto Chow, "Gourmet Vanilla". The "Rich Chocolate" is nice, and tastes very much like sugar-free dark chocolate pudding, but I can see myself getting tired of it day after day. So, we'll see what the vanilla version tastes like. There is also a Minty Chocolate and a Strawberry version, which I'll probably try at some point.

This is day one using Chris Bair's Keto Chow. I bought the "Rich Chocolate" variety and can say that it is definitely a richly chocolate flavor in the mouth. Unlike People Chow, KC is creamy, smooth, and thick like a smoothie. The gritty texture of People chow is entirely absent.
Keto Chow is a very low net carbohydrate meal replacement system that promotes ketosis like the Atkins or South Beach diets. I did well on South Beach in the past and hope that KC can help me lose the weight that needs to come off for me to get healthier.

Oh right. Yeah. Water oil and heavy cream. I'd have to plug in the numbers to see what I could do.

I love me some MSNBC. Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell are two of my favorite TV hosts. They usually impress me with their news coverage and opinion pieces.

Last night, The Rachel Maddow Show #TRMS and Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell #lastword derailed completely when the Lafayette theater shooting broke and they went to 100% focused coverage of the event.

I'm deeply disappointed in their coverage. I can't begin to describe my level of disappointment.  They fell into full-on "Breathless Talking Head" syndrome, conveying virtually no information and spending their air-time eliciting content-free comments from their experts about what might or might not be happening. It was terrible.
When something happens, tell me about it. Don't obsess over it. When you learn something of import about the event, share it with us. Don't sit there talking "maybe"s and "what-if"s when you don't have any new information. The rest of the world doesn't stop happening because something else occurred.

I turned off the coverage about 10 minutes into O'Donnell's show because they weren't telling me anything. EPIC FAIL, #MSNBC .

I got home last night from my trip to Tulsa to attend my daughter’s college graduation.  The trip was awesome.   Tulsa is a big, flat, spread out town with lots of green space, which surprised me for some reason.  I figured it would be more built up.  It…

First Keto diet challenge met. Took Bridgett Steele's car to a detailer today and had to hang out at a coffee shop while the work was done. Job ran long and I needed lunch. Oh noes! Went to a pizza joint and ordered a grilled chicken ceasar salad. HUGE salad with two entire chicken breasts on top! Gracious. Dressing was on the side, so I dipped a bit each time, ate only 1 of the crouton squares, and had a nice low-carb lunch. Go me!

Had lunch here yesterday. I'm on a low-carb diet so I ordered the Grilled chicken ceasar salad. Wow! What a salad! Huge bowl of nicely cut romaine lettuce with croutons (forgot to ask for no croutons) and two entire grilled chicken breasts sliced up on top. The dressing came on the side and was quite good. The chicken was nicely cooked and very flavorful. I ate almost the entire thing, sans croutons, and came away well satiated! Would definitely eat here again.
