T-minus: 364 days

With 52 weeks to go I need to lose 148.2 lbs.

See you in a week.

18 Mar

I’m still here.

So I’m approaching my 39th birthday and I have this looming goal that I’ve set for my 40th. I’ve been delaying “starting” TLI until I got back on track, until I had something positive to report. Honestly, in terms of weightloss, there isn’t too much positive to report from me at the moment.

I am going to get back on track, going to start working out, eating better again. I haven’t really done that yet, but I am trying to get myself back into the mindset of doing it.

One of the things I’m going to attempt, starting today, is Bob Harper’s (Yeah, Bob from the Biggest Loser) daily challenges that he’s posting on Twitter.

Today’s challenge from http://twitter.com/mytrainerbob is 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, 100 lunges and 5 minutes of meditation. Also to drink a lot of water (which I’ve actually been really good about lately.)

So I’ll report back tomorrow. I’ll let you know how I did on this challenge, what I weigh in at when I weigh myself tonight (Not looking forward to that).

I’m here, I’m back…

A Request: For Tee and Sonic Boom

Tee Morris has been a part of this podcast from the beginning. When Tony #2 and first sat down in front of his computer with one of those free stick microphones that you used to get with computers (Do they still give those away with new PCs?), we had a copy of Podcasting For Dummies sitting right there next to us. Tee co-wrote Podcasting for Dummies. I’ve since been able to get Tee to sign that copy.

Tee offered words of support and encouragement when I mentioned starting TLI, having his own experiences with the journey of weightloss.

Tee has come on the Back Seat Producers a few times each time is more epic than the time before. From the insanely long ‘interview’ we did with Tee and Pip to promote Double Trouble to Tee’s astounding work on Episode 100 to help us blast through reviewing 100 movies in 100 minutes. Just Tuesday I got a tweet from Tee offering himself up for an episode on Avatar. He had apparently seen it the night before and was itching to talk about it.

Tee has even shown up on this podcast, the only episode that I can think of that I’ve done here that has had anyone else’s voice but mine. We talked about his journey and gave me dieting tips.

Wednesday brought shocking news. Natalie Morris, the woman Tee married and mother to their daughter, Sonic Boom, died suddenly. It was completely unexpected.

I’ve known Tee for a couple of years now. We’ve shared amazing scotch, he gave me dieting tips for Tony’s Losing It and talked to me on a number of occasions during the stressful period that I was going through when Julie was in the Hospital for a month leading up to the birth of Erin.

You might know Tee as a podcaster, author, actor or showman. I add to that list friend. Tee is a great guy. Very giving and as genuinely nice a person as I’ve ever known.

Friends, fans… I’m making a request. Show Tee that he is appreciated, not only as a podcaster, author, movie reviewer… but as a parent. Because that’s a gig that he’s got to do solo now. As you can imagine there are immediate bills that need attended to and the community has already come together and, from what I gather, taken care of the immediate needs. Anything more that will be donated to Tee and Sonic Boom will go into a trust fund for SB.

Please give.

Thanks, Tony

An update

I’m still here.

I haven’t had the time, energy or motivation to post an episode recently, but I can say that I did lose two pounds in the week before Thanksgiving and have gone on to gain it back.

If you’ve listened to the last episode, you’ll know that things have gotten complicated again (as life sometimes does) and things just continue to get more complicated.

As we deal with some of our new responsibilities I am likely not going to be posting weekly episodes. I will however try to keep you guys updated on my progress.

This isn’t a bump in the road, it’s a mountain, but the road is also VERY long and I’m still on it.

Thank for your support and well wishes.

TLI Episode 039: March 6, 2009

Too long between this one and the last one.

Still working at losing, and still working at find a new one.

I think I mentioned Aron’s Blog in the podcast, but don’t remember mentioning the NAME of the blog or giving the URL.

Go to http://ideologyofmadness.com and you can check out the various articles that are posted over there.

See everyone next time.

And don’t be afraid to say, ‘hi’.

Fear the Froot – Tomorrow!

That’s right.

Tomorrow is the big day. I’ve got over one hundred dollars in donations and I’m going to be making a run at getting a load of fruit in the morning to take to the con and supply to all who want to partake.

I’m bringing my recording gear and might record a few things at the con, but more likely will just have some photos from the day as I want to spend time with all of the folks that have come in from all over the country to hang out and game for the day.

New episode on Sunday/Monday, if I’m not laid out with con-crud.

Recipe: Baked Spicy Fries

I’ve found another recipe that I want to share, I’ll be trying it sometime over this long weekend.

I found this one on www.low-fat-recipes.com. I’m always looking for something to have as a side. It’s easier to find some fairly simple entrees. Plain old veggies get old as a side, so I this seems like a really good alternative. It’s not something you necessarily want to have in abundance, but as a side it sounds great. I’ll have a review for Baked Spicy Fries on the podcast as soon as I’m able to get them cooked up.

Baked Spicy Fries
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes (in a 35 degree oven, so I’m thinking that this would be great to have along with chicken breasts baking at the same time
As the recipe reads at http://www.low-fat-recipes.com/alacarte/baked-spicy-fries.htm
Servings: 4
Fat 4 g
Calories 185

If you have a recipe for me to review and feature on the site, please email it to tony’slosingit@gmail.com (drop the apostrophe).
