    Because this is the "Official"/"Original"/"Initiation" thread?

    Shouldn't we show some pics of our Basement/Cellar Dweller areas? Where we spend a good part of our time (I do anyways).

    Having the wood eater down there, makes me committed to spending lots of valuable time down there. Not that it bothers me ;em I love my basement time.

    Yeah, but what shape are the old arteries in, my boss might let me have two of the above but all three would bring on the skillet.

    I've tried that argument it only resulted in both the skillet and rolling pin being shown to me.

    Gotta go to the dark side every so often ;)

    For the most part, its healthier eating. Freaking salads at lunch on work days, good for me dinners, elliptical and stationary bike 4-5 times a week, some weights. Until warm weather then its outside stuff. Use to run, but the knees dont like that any more so its mountain biking. Last physical had good blood work numbers. Unfortunately I got my moms metabolism ::-) and even with the healthier eating and exercise, I could stand to lose a few lbs. Trying but gets harder to keep off as we get older. :( Cant stand those people that eat anything and dont gain................

    The boss claims it is because she wants me around a lot longer. I really think it is because she wants to cause me as much trouble as possible and the longer I'm around the more trouble I get tossed my way.

    I used to be able to eat anything and not gain, but that stopped back around 2003 and from then until we got here in 2007 and had all of the dirt, compost, and crap to move and a lot larger lawn to mow, and the driveway to keep clear of snow, I gained just a few pounds. Started loosing it shoveling the snow off the long deck and the roofs. The snow had to be moved 2 times and in one section 3 times. Had a snowball fight in May 2008 and had a 5' pile in front of the long deck. Then I bought over 30 yards of loam and moved that and about the same amount of composted horse, pony, donkey, and goat manure making various garden beds.

    Snow removal is always a source of exercise here as well. Love the warmer weather outside "chores" as well. Will take that over the winter stuff.....Now if I could find a way to not work (90% office/10% warehouse environment), then the outside home stuff would definitely take care of the lbs :p
