Kero Power Tie

Schmaltz

"Quaker Instant Oatmeal" has not materially changed since I was a kid ... which isn't a bad thing. After all, why mess with success, right? But there is one superficial change that saddens me. When I was a kid, the wax-paper packets had these cute lil' cartoon kids in winter weather gear and simplistic winter landscapes, with round heads and big smiles, and captions that read things like, "Warms you up inside when it's cold outside," or "The perfect way to start your day." These days, the packets have things like "Heart-Healthy Diet Tips" and such on them; boring and bleak. I mean yeah, it was schmaltzy ... but it was still just kinda nice.

So, I miss it.

Tuesday Workout Report

Collapse )

Presumably I'm heavier at night because I've had dinner.

The weights have gotten easy again, but fortunately next week several of the exercises will click over to the next 5 lb. increment. There have been some visible (if subtle) improvements over the past week, notably in the upper region of the external obliques and the shoulders. If the weights keep going up at their current rate, then I might well be pretty buff by AC. ;) If only this tummy fat would bugger off!

Tomorrow night, exercise bike.
