5/12/2017 - Keep this Frequency CLEAR

Greetings my Zero Carb Family and Friends,

I gotta tell ya that I am in Rib eye Heaven!!! Yes, I am. Hmmm... let me see, yes I am humming a little song or jingle of some sorts:

Rib eyes in the morning,

Rib eyes in the evening,

Rib eyes at supper time,

Be my little Rib eye.

And I'll love you all the time.

OK, I made some oh so necessary adjustments to the song. 

Dave has went off the deep end! 

Deep end indeed!!! I told ya that I  bought a nice stash of Rib eyes for $2.97 lb and I have to say they are some of the best Rib eyes I have ever tasted. They have outstanding marbling. I mean I just pan fried one last night and my (DW) took it away from me and ate half as I stood by drooling. Jeez........  She said she felt bad taking my food away, but at the end of the day she enjoyed it and I got some too. It's all good here. 

Yes, and now for my next Wacky Experiment............not!!! Yes, I will be enjoying my stash of Rib eyes for a little while. My next hunt will be to find some decent Beef Ribs. Or should I say the Elusive Beef Ribs..........wow that sound like that dude on The Deadlist Catch........."The Elusive King Crab"......... and so on. 

Hmm.........King Crab.........yes with tons of melted butttahhh. Shoot I'll be happy with some good ole Snow Crab. Wow, now I have it: Surf and Turf. Rib eyes and Snow Crab smothered in Butttahh. 

Does anyone know of some Crab on sale??? Any kind will do!

First Rib eyes, then Beef Ribs and now Crab. I think my head is spinning. 

Now what to eat tomorrow? I have some pan Sausage in the freezer that needs eating. I need to get some Bacon. I love to cook Bacon and then fry my eggs in the grease. Yum!!! OK: Sausage Omelet with Bacon on the side. Yes, that will fill the bill for my first meal of the day. 

Sorry for the gibberish, but what the hey! 

So what's up for the weekend? Tomorrow I have an obligation. I was thinking of going to Rudy's BBQ to Meat up with some fellow (ZC)ers, but I can't get out of the obligation. Hey there will always be another time.

Sunday my siblings want to take my Mom out to an Italian restaurant. OK, a (ZC)er in an Italian restaurant. Hooray....not!!! Since (ZC) I avoid those eating establishments like the plague. Some might say: "they have grilled chicken breast" or "they have grill Pork Chops"........ well I am not a big fan of Chicken Breast. If I have them on rare occasions I make Chicken Salad out of them. I like Pork Chops, but I rather eat them elsewhere. 

OK y'all just stretching the ole fingers here. Just chilling from the last experiment and enjoying LIFE.

Have a wonderful day and weekend! Keep the Faith and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er And the Beat Goes ON

Cheers,

Dave

DAY 6   = (1.0) = 05.0 lbs loss, current weight: 170.0 lbs (this is how we do it)
DAY 7   = (3.0) = 08.0 lbs loss, current weight: 167.0 lbs (not so fast)

DAY 14 = (0.5) = 12.0 lbs loss, current weight: 163.0 lbs (record low 4)
DAY 15 = (0.5) = 12.5 lbs loss, current weight: 162.5 lbs (record low 5 ta da!!)

AND THIS WACKY EXPERIMENT IS IN THE HISTORY BOOKS!!! 

Yes, it was an Experiment Folks, no more, no less. OK, I am not going to go there.

How do you feel Dave??? I feel rather good if not GREAT!!!! Considering the circumstances of having an injured foot, being on medication and some unfortunate undo stress. All came out fine.

What will you do next Dave? Hmm........... lets see what mischief I can get myself into next. Just joking or am I?

Well, yesterday I went shopping and bought two large packages of Rib eye steaks @ $2.97 lb. Each steak weight a little over a pound each. YUUUUMMMM!!!!!!

Jeez what to do with those steaks............I just don't know. Right?

I Tell You What: After all those eggs I am ready for a little change. I have plenty of Oak Lump Coal begging to be FIRED UP! Along with a nice variety of wood chips that would be rather angry if they did not get some action too. Hahaha!!!

It actually felt good if not Great posting daily. It felt like old times in a sense. I gotta tell ya that starting my original ZIOH Journal was very Exciting, Challenging and a bit Scary at the very beginning.

I was a NOOB aka NEWBIE. I had to be careful what I said for the most part until I got some experience. I totally agree with that, because you don't want someone giving advice to others when they have don't fully understand what's going on.

Yet, the easiest thing for me to do was to try to follow the Purest Path. I did for the most part, but as time went on I start to experiment with other accepted Zero Carb foods and some that were a little more controversial. I know that Coffee has been frowned upon as well as Dairy. Although Dairy is more widely accepted to me and most other Zero Carb sites or groups. Ah, but we are not following the Core: Dink Water when thirsty and Eat Meat when Hungry. Yes, we walk GREY or GRAY LINES. 

That's OK.........or is it???

I often ask myself "could I become a true PUREST??? Yes I do like talking to myself don't ya know lol? 

I think I could be a Purest, but could I really do it Life Long. I really don't know. There is a large variety of meats out there that are oh so yummy. But still, no eggs........OK eggs are not a big deal at the moment (I wonder why), but I do enjoy some easy over eggs running all over some pan sausage, bacon or my FAVORITE Barbacoa! YUM to the 10th degree!!!

In the past I would tell myself: "food is just fuel, food is just fuel, food is just fuel" and so on. Jeez why does it have to taste so freaking good if not Great? Darn taste buds!

So, where do I go now? Back to eating doughnuts, Twinkies or putting Dunking Doughnuts out of business............yes it's a JOKE! 

Lighting up a little! I love humor folks, yes I do. My humor is my humor..........love it, hate it.............it really does not matter.

Look-It: Most bullies are just COWARDS when they are out of their element.  Don't ever let Someone Shut - You - Down! 

Stand up for yourself! Be Strong, Be Confident and most of all:
 BE BRAVE!

Brave- Sara Bareilles


That's it for now my family and friends. It's been fun and challenging all at the same time. Keep the Faith and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er RISE

Dave

5/9/2017 - ZC / 5BD / Egg Fast Challenge Day 14

Howdy all,

We are down the stretch and the results continuing to mount up:

(Please let me know if I mess up on my math below, I might add or subtract incorrectly)

DAY 1   = (0.0) = 00.0 lbs,loss, current weight: 175.0 lbs (out the gate)
DAY 2   = (2.0) = 02.0 lbs, loss, current weight: 173.0 lbs (talk to me)
DAY 3   = (1.0) = 03.0 lbs loss, current weight: 172.0 lbs (keep it coming)
DAY 4   = (0.5) = 03.5 lbs loss, current weight: 171.5 lbs (oh my)
DAY 5   = (0.5) = 04.0 lbs loss, current weight: 171.0 lbs (yeah baby)
DAY 6   = (1.0) = 05.0 lbs loss, current weight: 170.0 lbs (this is how we do it)
DAY 7   = (3.0) = 08.0 lbs loss, current weight: 167.0 lbs (not so fast)
DAY 8   = (0.5) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (not bad)
DAY 9   = (0.0) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (THE WALL)
DAY 10 = (0.5) = 09.0 lbs loss, current weight: 166.0 lbs (push forward)
DAY 11 = (0.5) = 09.5 lbs loss, current weight: 165.5 lbs (record low)
DAY 12 = (1.0) = 10.5 lbs loss, current weight: 164.5 lbs (record low 2)
DAY 13 = (1.0) = 11.5 lbs loss. current weight: 163.5 lbs (record low 3)
DAY 14 = (0.5) = 12.0 lbs loss, current weight: 163.0 lbs (record low 4)

So there you go folks. One more day to go!!! Hmm.........yes I was thinking of something clever to say, then it slipped my mind. Go figure???

Ya gotta have a little humor my family and friends. So many folks out there are so bitter and dry. I choose to be understanding, friendly and helpful as much as I can. It really becomes second nature to me. 

I have mentioned before that in my distant past that I had been in situations that an action novel could have be written. I'm talking about some really tense situations where a wrong decision could have meant the loss of life or limb. No joke. That is why when I say to people who are attacking me: "if you really knew me, you would not speak to me that way". Unfortunately some folks mistake kindness for weakness.

Those days are oh so in the past and I thank the Lord everyday that I am safe and my former team is safe and although we got banged up pretty bad sometimes, we made it through some precarious situations in one piece. That life is so far removed it seems like another lifetime. Yes, I have been reincarnated into a (ZC)er!!!

These days I choose to be supportive, positive and good natured. I really enjoying helping others no matter the situation. When you get help from me, you get the best that I can offer, no-holds-barred!!! That is who I am and will always be for the rest of my LIFE!!!!!

Amen Brother Dave!!! Yet another "soap box" moment don't ya know? Hahaha!!!

That brings a song to mind:

I'll be there for you by The Rembrandts


Love the song, not the show "Friends". Never watched a single episode. It was not my cup of tea. Yes, Tea is OK on a (ZC) Lifestyle as long as it is plain. Unless, that is, if you are a purest. 

One day left on this Challenge!!! Lets see what tomorrow brings!

Have a great day my family and friends. Keep On, Keeping On and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er Just Reach OUT

Cheers,

Dave

5/8/2017 - ZC / 5BD / Egg Fast Challenge Day 13

Greetings all,

Another record low for me! My spirits and energy are in FLIGHT and my foot pain is gone!!!

DAY 5   = (0.5) = 04.0 lbs loss, current weight: 171.0 lbs (yeah baby)
DAY 6   = (1.0) = 05.0 lbs loss, current weight: 170.0 lbs (this is how we do it)
DAY 7   = (3.0) = 08.0 lbs loss, current weight: 167.0 lbs (not so fast)

How do you like them apples.......oops I mean Pork Skins? Hahaha!!!! Yes, a laugh of a madman one might say Half man Half Egg.

I can almost tap dance........hmm......not a bad idea!!! No really the foot pain is gone. Now if I find the spot and push down really, really hard, then it does not take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.......or does it???

Look-It: This 30 Day Challenge now actually 15 Day Challenge is not a cake walk........oops x2 I mean a can of peaches.......oops x3......... I mean a drumstick, yes safe with that one!!! It is not for the weak of heart I gotta tellya. Yet, it was challenging for me and that's OK. Some folks like to push it, some don't and at the end of the day it really does not matter. 

We all have to do things at our own pace, but I like to kick things around and stir up the juices........ OK, pause not required on that one. 

So there you go! I am oh so happy with the results thus far and have two (2) more days to go!!!

Have a great day my zero carb family and friends. Fight the Good Fight and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er At Your SIDE

Cheers,

Dave
