Somewhere in the second half of last year, I fell off the fitness wagon, and gained back most of the weight I lost two year back. I've thought about eating better, always had good excuses as to why I wasn't, but for the past two weeks I've thrown all the excuses out, I'm tracking my calories through the "MyPlate" app, and doing my weight lifting program. I've been sticking to it semi strictly last week, and full on strict this week. Very low carbs. I find that's just what works for me. To break it down so far this week: Breakfast Coffee and Cream Two egg bites Total calories: 323 Lunch Unsalted Butter (for the pan) Two Duck Eggs with…

Honestly, I'm not really feeling it this year. I need to order some filter cones and paper for finishing the syrup. Just checked my supplies and I'm low on the pre-filter paper, and completely out on the main filter cloth. My pop-up tent was destroyed last year in a storm, so need a new one of those for ghetto sugar shack 4.0 I believe it will be numbered this year. I'm good on barrels I believe. Have one for finishing and one for sap, just need to double check if I should order a new one. Have the burner ready and the tap into my house for unlimited propane supply.

So many posts I have started and failed to publish. Oh my…. Just looking at all my unpublished posts all the way back to 2018. Since it is the new year, I’m going to resolve myself to publishing a post a day! Been good at it so far, just would like to keep it up. Still going to revolve around my travels and adventures, fitness, money, and my photography passion that has grown immensely over the last year. Stick around!

After building my Cigar Room, I was looking for some additional decor we could keep in the room to complete it aesthetically. One of the items was a vintage radio. Not just any Vintage Radio, but one that was old, but had been modernized. In steps Old Man's Workshop, on etsy. He takes old radios, removes the guts, and adds in a bluetooth electronic board. The radio then plugs into the wall and is always on, and always ready for a blue tooth connection. I get into the cigar room, connect to the radio, and turn on some classics. Admiral Radio I mean, just look at that radio! One of the knobs is volume and still works, the other does…

Not much of a post, just grabbed one of my last Cubans procured from the islands. Haven't been travelling outside the country in a long while. Can't wait to get back out there. Soon. Post about my trip to Napa soon. Just relaxing in the Cigar room with a Cuban and some vodka seltzer. Best place to be after a hard day at work.

I've been trying to work on my photography skills, using different angles, shutter speeds, etc. I'm amateurish at best, but know enough to be dangerous. Luckily my wife Cat doesn't mind being on the other end of the camera and is doing work to promote her running and fitness. Snowy Running Capture
