I know this is asking a lot, but does anybody have a working copy of Tecmo Super Bowl for NES that they are willing to part with?  We can discuss payment options.

This might seem silly to some of you, but I'm really proud of my ability to cut this trim. I've never done anything like this before, and it turned out perfect!  I'm finally starting to feel like a man!!

Hmmm...some things to think about.
 
Logic behind weight loss and weight gain
The simple reason why you lose or gain weight: your body’s ability to adapt. It’s smart - it’s a lot smarter than you think. Your body evolves to suit your daily needs and it assumes the shape you ask of it, though maybe not intentionally. The simple reality of it is: if you let your body think that it’s not required for it to move fast or carry heavy objects every single day it won’t grow muscles or shed the pounds to be able to perform better, easier and with less effort. That’s how it works to put it simply. 

So, if someone let’s say tries to lose weight fast and goes on a crush diet it shocks the system so that the moment that someone is off the calorie restrictions his or her body starts to stockpile and stockpile like mad. It’s a simple self-preservation response – you basically just let your body know that the “hard times” might return at some point and you need all that extra weight to see you through. That’s mainly the reason why you would always get your lost weight back and fast and probably gain extra. 

Conditions are vital when it comes to weight control and shaping your body. Put your body in the right conditions and that’ll force it to change the way you want to. That’s why you often hear that you must change your lifestyle in order to permanently change the way you look. It’s true enough. Sprinters have explosive, big muscles to put power into their runs and long distance runners have sleek bodies to carry them through serious distances as easily and as efficiently as possible. Bodybuilders lift and get big muscles because they feed their bodies and force them to get used to heavier and heavier loads, while yogis spend years making their bodies bend every which way by forcing it to do it over and over again. You can always tell what your body is used to by just looking at someone, the way they walk and the way their body flows. Fit people tend to be in complete control of their bodies and very aware of themselves. Have you ever seen someone who has no idea where their body starts or ends? It’s down to practice, practice and training. 

Once you are in the conditions that force your body into change be that dietary restrictions or harsh physical activity your body begins to learn the new rules. It takes time for it to see if it’s worth adjusting to the new routine or if it can maintain the shape it is now. There are several factors that play a role here. When someone starts to exercise, for example, they begin to feel hunger a lot stronger – this is how your body tries to compensate for the energy spent training and you end up eating more calories than you burn as a result. This kind of hunger isn’t real - it’s a side effect of burning the reserves you already have. And it’s actually a lot easier to eat more than you burned since we tend to over-estimate the numbers spent and under-estimate the amounts consumed – it happens to the best of us. 

Another factor that plays a role is time. It takes time for your body to see if it can just wait it out and hold on to whatever weight reserves you have on you. It often happens to people who tend to drop in and out of training. The experience of being challenged and being under physical stress stays in the body’s memory for a while after that. That’s why you can see fast results when you try something new and then nada when you try this same thing again, later. 

Routine is something your body falls into and it does it fast, too. It’s a master of adaptation, an artist in its own right. Imagine, that you do the same old thing over and over again with the same intensity and the same calorie intake and suddenly things stop moving forward – you hit a plateau. What happened again? Yep, the bloody thing adjusted to the lifestyle and now it has optimized itself to continue going at the set pace for as long as it takes. To break free of this the best thing to do is to shake things up, let it know that routine can be broken and other things will be demanded of it any moment. That’s why it also helps to keep your training sessions fresh and mixed in intensity if it’s the change you want to see in yourself. 

When you create an active environment for yourself where you might be expected to run, jump and do push-ups you force your body to be ready for it, any time. You force it to change shape to suit this kind of environment – it’s a simple enough logic. If you do something for a while – you’ll see results fast but then, you’ll also lose them after going back to your old lifestyle. And then every other time you do the same thing over and over again you’ll see less and less out of it. Every now and then shocking your body is good but if you let it be afraid of starvation, for example, it’ll hold on to the every last bite and stockpile, stockpile, stockpile. 

And yet, it’s also all down to your lifestyle. Eventually your body learns what’s what and behaves accordingly. If you train one or two days a week you can probably do some good but it won’t make you change. It’s when not-training is something out of the ordinary that your body really starts adjusting and changing shape. It’s smart and it should be treated as such. Of course it doesn’t want to be put under pressure – the ideal conditions for it is to sit on pile of food and not move – because, who knows when you’ll need all these reserves. Yet, it needs to move in order to stay healthy – it’s happiest when it moves, actually. Your whole body begins to work like a well-oiled mechanism at any hour of the day if you give it what it needs, not what it wants. 

Our bodies are a reflection of our lifestyles, basically. They don’t exactly have a mind of their own but they may just as well have and that’s why they must be controlled and looked after. Exercising just to tick the box, cheating half the time won’t do you any good, but waste your precious time. Think about it this way: is it making me uncomfortable enough to make my body adapt? If the answer is yes, you’ll see results. If you keep it up long enough these results will become permanent.

I've always had a good experience here. Their specialty pizzas are great, especially the southern bbq chicken. It's also awesome that you can get specialty crusts for free. That's a nice touch. The decor is typical for a pizza joint and doesn't bother me because I always order out. I would recommend this place. :)

Nice atmosphere and great service. The girls behind the counter were helpful and very friendly. Of course, the pieces of cake we got were out of this world. Not too rich, which is a problem I find with a lot of desserts in general. They actually ended up giving my wife an extra piece because the first one was cut "too small!" Great place and I would recommend it to anyone who likes awesome desserts!
