Frantic Friday : The be like Waffles Edition.... (NSFW)

It's rare that I find anything too inspiring, when I stare at this stupid screen. But lately one of us has started to make some personal changes, that have me taking a good, hard look at myself.

Yes the Pedophile Popper and the best.nipple.shot.poster.EVER Angel may both have passed on the same day, but beware of the real impending doom, as I admit that I may have been inspired by Waffles.

Thankfully, it's nothing Poker related!

Waffles decision to do something about the shape he's in, got me to thinking about how I was doing in that department also. When I couldn't help but notice that there was definitely more "shape" for me to take a look at, I realized that I too better start on the road to recovery.

It's not like this came up on me :

or anything either. I've been ignoring the signs and symptoms for far too long now! I'd always eat that last bite off my plate, no matter that I was stuffed to the gills. And heaven forbid I turn down anyone offering up a piece of candy! Hell if you handed me the bag, I'd eat them all in the end!

All of the extra food with no real form of exercise, was starting to really take it's toll on my body. Never mind,'does my ass look big in this?' I could tell for myself it was getting huge!

Then there was all the signs of the problem that I was ignoring, clothing not fitting properly :

and all the times it seemed that because of my increased proportions, I just plain had nothing to wear.

Oh I had lots of clothes alright, I just didn't fit into them any more. The last straw was when I found I was having some issues with something as simple as, pulling up my socks.

I had to face the cold hard truth! I was getting fat and I was not happy about it! I needed to start doing something about it and right away. The first thing I needed to do was, tell myself to start moderating my food intake. No longer could it be :

Next, I needed to develop a workout program.

I never been one of the guy's that can go down to the local gym or health club and push myself to the limits. I've always needed a partner or buddy to help motivate me to keep on keepin' on. It's just how I'm made I guess. But I didn't let that stop me! Nope, inspired by Waffles and his determination to keep walking and walking, no matter how many times or how much it rained :

I did everything that I needed to do, in order to motivate myself to get this done.

Knowing my weakness was going to be making myself do the right thing, the first order of business was to grab a friend :

to push me to the limit.

You know what? With that friend in hand, I was already starting to feel better.

Next we needed to develop some type of plan. We needed some clear direction :

to get us pointed in the right way.

I think our plan was perfect! I also think I was much fatter and out of shape, than even I had first admitted. Man! When we started the workout, I just couldn't believe how much I was sweating!

Honestly kids, I found out a few things just from this first little bit of stress and strain. Some of them were things that well.... I never really needed to know!

As an example when the sweat started getting all over the place, that's when I found that I'd managed to grow fat enough to have what could technically be called :

under boob.

Because I'm such a good and caring friend, I'll spare you all the gorey details about the sweat in the nether regions below.

Let's just say it wasn't that pretty shall we?

The good thing was, I was doing something about getting back in shape. It made me both happy and proud to be working out so hard, to improve the way I look and feel. And trust me, I was working harder than most. I was so out of shape that in one of the exercises, the bicycle I think it's called :

I nearly fell over as I tried to keep up.

But I never quit! Sure I got a lot sweatier :

but you know what? I was learning as I go and there's not a damn thing wrong, with creating a little sweat!

Even if it is in your currently dwindling under boob!

We've worked out long, hard and often together and I have to say a huge thanks to my friend and workout buddy! I couldn't have done it without you.

Now at my age, I know better than to expect that I'll turn myself into some kind of :

just by doing a few workouts here and there. But I honestly think I'm past that anyhow. I just want to enjoy my :

and like most everybody else, maybe help myself feel a little more comfortable when I'm hanging around at the pool.

So I'm going to keep plugging away at it and see where this whole "in shape" journey takes me.

I can tell you, I certainly feel a lot better about myself of late. And to think, all because of Waffles. Thanks man!

OH crap I almost forgot! Even though I'm fairly new to this whole workout thing, there are a few key points that I feel it's important to share with you. First, do whatever it takes to keep yourself hydrated!

I can't begin to tell you how imortant that is.

Secondly, most just walk in and sign up for whatever program the clubs and gyms have going on at the moment. Don't be that guy! Check the papers, radio ad's and maybe even do the google thing, to see what's really out there for you. Many of these facilities advertise a special :

that can save you hundreds and hundreds of dollars. Cash in your pocket not theirs, is a really good thing.

Finally and probably the most important tip I can give you, be careful! Do not over exert yourself or try equipment that you are not completely familiar with and for heavens sake, if your thinking about trying something really exciting and new :

be as descrete as you can!

Thanks Waffles!

Statistically speaking....

I don't chase down my blog stats, I track them out of curiosity more than anything else to be honest. But it seems that I always find something fascinating, (to me?) when I do check them out.

I've mentioned here before that I have a reader or two that show up as military I.P.'s. I can typically track these to Afghanistan and our Canadian military forces. I don't care if it's one, two or twenty of them dropping by here from time to time, it just always makes me very happy that they do.

My stats this week however, show that I seemed to have picked up 8 new readers.

Based on the I.P.'s and the fact that these readers seem to be fascinated by our Frantic Fridays, I'd say I seem to be supporting a few American Troops as well. Glad I can be of some assistance to you fine folk!

Oh and for you other American readers, I hope you've given THIS some consideration. It's a great idea IMHO.

I know it's only Thursday and such, but I just can't help myself. Here's hoping all 8 of you new readers manage to keep everything together and can keep on, rockin' on!

Another thing the stats seem to confirm is, Frantic Fridays are still a hit on the weekends!

Now I'm no "A" lister, (I've always been more fond of a 38C lister anywho) but considering that I don't, (very rarely) put up posts on a Saturday or Sunday, I think I have to be happy with the numbers that are being generated on those days. Pretty sure this is attributable to the Frantic Friday 'NSFW' tag however, as the stats also show that the weekend hits are from mostly regulars as well. Obviously these stats are trying to tell me something very important right?

Join in on the fun....

No really!

Stop reading here and be a part of the "entertain a bored kid in Buffalo" party.

There! I told two friends, now they'll tell two friends and hopefully, they'll tell two friends.......

Yeah... I gots nada today. The only thing I've had much time for lately, is Twitter battling with THIS GUY on some funny and funky topics. I think Dean Martins : Pasta Sauce.....
could have been a lot of fun by the way!

Nothing worse than a busy Bam-Bam.

Just one of those days....

As crazy as it may sound in these unstable economic times, we're a company looking to spend a few bucks on a fairly major project. "Major" I guess, is really a relative term isn't it? For us $1.5 Mill. is a chunk 'o' change, so I'm calling it a major project.

I've entertained no less than FIVE different companies bringing their "A" game proposals to get the business and secure their own companies future. I know for a fact that for at least three of these companies, the project would basically get them through the remainder of the business year comfortably.

I think my mood after that last presentation yesterday, may have had something to do with my new ink.

It was just ridiculous how weak the proposals really were. Yet one by one the in your face sales approach was taken by every one of them. I tweeted during the one guy's proposal, the more he opens his mouth, the less I want his product.

Totally and utterly pathetic!

OH yeah.... and all of the Liquor Stores in the Province may go on strike at midnight tonight. Something about job security for the workers. It appears that about 60% of them are part time and they ONLY make $20,000 a year. I don't know call me crazy here, but isn't having any job right now considered bonus?

I must have missed something pretty big I guess. I have no idea when and why the vast majority of the rest of the World, all turned into Sham-WOW sales people.

This Father's Day....

After busting backside and haulin' azz pretty much all day Saturday, Peb's let me spend Sunday any way I wanted to. NICE! Not really a tough decision for me to make though.

The near perfect Father's Day included :

- Enjoy the Sun from the Muskoka Chairs on the deck.
- The Love of my life and I discussing anything, everything and nothing.
- A few of the best damn Margarita's this side of THAT border.PERIOD!
- Latin tunes so loud and hot, it was impossible to keep your hips still.
- Realizing that you'd just taken a walk around the property and never stopped holding hands.
- An awful lot of laughing.
- A call to my Dad that I know made him happy.
- A call from Not-So-Mini-Peb's, that she knows made me happy.
- Catching a little of the US Open.
- Grilling a full pound of Garlic Butter marinated JUMBO shrimp.
- A beautiful fire through early dusk and into dark.
- Also all of the things that you can imagine if you really know me, but don't need full disclosure here or anywhere else!


Saturday was spent working hard on the deck materials and getting everything stained, weather-sealed and ready for the build. Back breaking work when there's sixty 2" x 6" x 16' top boards to be done, before you even look at all the railing and stair material. Right at my side the entire time though, was my Peb's. We certainly got a workout getting that done! Well OK..... not "done" exactly, more like well started.

Since we worked so hard all through the afternoon, we decided that we should take the rest of the day off. Always a good decision in my books. Out came the adult bevies and plop went the azz on a chair. We talked about how we'd hoped that a last minute miracle was going to happen, but in the end it didn't. We wanted to surprise some HAWT chick & her Husband at their home game. It ended up being a no-go, so I had to settle for the next best thing instead. So I called her up. Funny thing though, despite making me smile and feel good to get to talk to her, it really made me sad that getting out there didn't work out. We of course said "next time" as part of our good byes and trust me, there will be a next time if I have anything to say about it. Besides, I hear there's a possibility of getting 'bit' out that way. Somehow that sounds SO much more interesting than all the Mosquitos and Black Flies around the cave right now.


I hope each of you had as good a Father's Day as I did. Hopefully, you also got to do whatever it is that makes you the happiest. It really couldn't happen to a bunch of nicer guys!
