In terms of disease’s being silent, the one that has come into my life with a vengeance just happens to be Anorexia. The person in my life who suffers from it is my wife. At one point her weight got dangerously low more than a couple of decades ago and then she bounced back to somewhat normal after we had our son. That lasted for quite a while. Something recently or within the last year or so seems to have triggered her and she is on a kick to lose weight yet again.

She looks at herself and seem to…


When you start lifting at the young age of 12, be sure to be careful not to injure yourself early on so that you don’t wind up breaking your damned body to pieces before you turn 50!

I got my start lifting when I was very young, my dad bought a weight set and I used it the vast majority of the time from then on forward, and was bit by the iron bug early on. This started with seeing powerlifting competitions on ABC’s Wide World of Sports way back in the late 70s. Not to date myself and all…


Well, another week gone by and here is how things are going in my life as we move into spring.

I have decided that I am going to concentrate on two things primarily from now on, getting my online personal training business going and writing, and actually getting started writing stories and not just posts here on the blog. As a secondary goal, I intend to start regularly posting here on the blog and to make some art work or I should say working at getting my skills back with making art.

Writing will fall under two categories, erotica and…


For real, for the time being. We have gotten two snow storms in the last week, though this last one had lots of ice with it. It has also been rather cold, but that is pretty normal for this time of year up here in the North East.

As usual, I have been pretty bad at keeping up posting here on the blog, but then again I have been pretty busy with the full-time gig as well and that really makes doing anything else difficult as I have to do that work first. …


This time around, I didn’t have as much weight loss as the last time I did this. Starting weight 213, ending weight 203. I did nix about 3% of body fat as well, so this wasn’t a total bust.

I still have three days of this fasting period that are OMAD (One Meal a Day) before it officially ends, so I will probably weigh myself again come Monday morning to see if there was any additional change in my weight.

Overall, I feel good though I am starving of course. …


We had another snowstorm which was supposed to be a big one, they were talking about 15″ of snow at the start, by today which is supposed to bring the end of the storm it has now been less than 6″.

So decided that I would start doing another rational fast, since it’s the start of a new year, I figured why not. My starting weight yesterday morning was 213 pounds. Which was up from my previous weigh in at 207 pounds. It isn’t something that is all that hard to do, this will be the third time I have…


In my posting here the last few weeks, and I have still been getting some traffic to the site, more than I would have thought.

What have I been up to, well not much, mostly work, which has been extremely busy due to all the projects that I am involved with at work. One of those projects is going to get my ass dragged to Georgia soon, just not 100% sure when that will actually be. What will suck is that it will be a long trip, could be 4+ weeks. …


And right now things are sucking. This suck really started after the whole COVID thing started. What is causing it is that we are becoming ever increasingly short on money at this point because of some lost income that we have counted on. …


That first snowstorm of the season was basically a bust, we got maybe 2 inches of snow and a lot of sleet and ice. It was a big disappointment as far as snowstorms go.

On a completely other topic, I have started looking outside of my normal work environment (fed gov’t contracting) for jobs. The primary reason for this is that after 20 years of working in this arena and trying to land a gov’t job itself, I am done and have decided it is time to move on. This is more so because in the last 9 months I…


Today we are getting our first snowstorm, a bit early as I don’t remember anytime in recent history that we have gotten snow this early in the winter. Though there was a time when we would get snow in early November back home in NJ. Supposedly this storm will deliver up to 5″ in our area.

It is funny because I work from home now any such thing that would add up to extra time off of time off for the snowstorm doesn’t even count at all since I don’t have to go anywhere. Kind of sucks! …
