Eat Pineapple...lots of it...it's like candy there...You'll wonder why they're selling it for 50 bucks in the airport when you arrive, but by the time you leave, you'll be wanting to ship it to your house at any cost....

Congratulations on the nuptials!  Don't worry about finding good things to do in Hawaii, they'll find you...

My best friend (6'3") and her husband (6'10") have a son who just finished kindergarten.  He's 5 feet tall, and turns six in June.  If anyone knows how to form an IPO so I can have stock options in a future athlete, let me know.  Rest assured everyone, he's properly groomed to be a Buckeye.

Agreed on Boren, he'll go to a scheme blocking team. He's the mold of a Kory Lichtenstieger.

First, determine the size you need.  You can manipulate many things on a grill, but you can't add size.  After that, the rest isn't so bad.  Webers are great, but pricey.  They, and others, are great because they cook evenly.  The good news is you can make any gas grill cook better than a weber by buying grillgrates.  My 10 year old grill with 4 burners from Walmart I would take over the best holland or weber any day due to those grates.  They are a game changer.

http://amazingribs.com/bbq_equipment_reviews_ratings/ - and the rest of that site will tell you anything you want to know about grills, smokers, thermodynamics of cooking, thermometers...it's information overload.  The biggest recommendation I'd make for a gas grill is to get something with a number of individual burners, not just one large horizontal burner.  Being able to control the temperature is tantamount to the best results.  Having 4 burners for example, allows you to heat one side, and cook indirectly on the other avoiding flare ups on items such as brats.  Look to spend over $200 as a starting point, and you'll see the better construction come into play vs the lower end items which inevitably will rust.

If you can't pick it, grow it, or kill it, don't eat it.  LC's are low cal, but they're usually packed with sodium\salt.  If you choose to have those, a good rule of thumb is to make sure the ratio of fat calories to calories on the label is below 1/3 e.g. The glazed chicken has 45 calories from fat, but an overall total of 245 calories, ...so it's fine from a fat content standpoint, but the sodium content can make you crave more food than you need.  Nutrition (imho) is more important than counting calories, but you also don't want your body to go into starvation mode (starving can cause your body to store anything you consume straight to your fat stores and rob your muscles of protein) so paying attention to calories can help there.  There are several calculators (http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm) on the internet for what you should consume calorically in a day, and I'd recommend a deficit of no more than 600 calories from your recommended intake for fat loss.  I'm 6' and 205, so my maintenance calorie recommendation is 2700 a day, with 2250 as the recommended for fat loss.  That's a steady approach to fat loss from the caloric side.  A good structure to follow is to reduce carbs from your diet, increase your protein and good fat content.  The carbs you do eat, consume in the morning or at lunch. Decrease carb intake during the day, and increase protein intake over the day.  Good carbs in order of best descending: Green leafy vegetables, fibrous vegetables, fruits, red potatoes, brown rice.  Eat leaner proteins: chicken, turkey, fish, beans. 

Final word on diets...you need 2.  One as a plan to get you to the weight you desire.  The second and far more important one is the maintenance diet eating plan to follow once you've achieved your weight.  The DASH eating plan is a good example, or the perfect health diet.

Glutamine will help.  You'll still feel a bit stiff, but the aching soreness is curbed tremendously taking glutamine before a workout.  Once you get used to HIIT, over a month or so, it lessens.  Are you drinking water, or BCAAs during your workout?  Hydration can really help curb soreness as well.

I can understand the concern safety issue here, but at the same time, she knows what she is signing up for.

http://amazingribs.com/  anything you could ever want to know about grilling, grills, smoking, or recipes.  They even talk about the thermodynamics of food while it's cooking.

This was also my first car...you could outrun it to 35 mph.  Vertical radio and all.  Did you have  broom handle to prop open the hatch?

The Dubbers are dropping good advice!  If you're into a good book, check out the perfect health diet.  It's more a change of mentality, than diet.  Eating less quantity, more frequently is a great start.  This book taught me the right things to eat at the right times of day, as well as the concept to manage my energy, not my food quantity, by only eating enough to fuel me to my next meal.  Struggling with portion size control was my hurdle.  The mentality of giving myself enough energy to get to the next meal greatly helped the need to eat too much.  The difference was eye opening, as I no longer was in a food coma after any meal, and maintaining a much higher energy level all day.  Beyond those things, the book is a great resource on matching up food to workouts.  I had yo-yo dieted for years.  The motivation to workout lessons when you get to your goal weight, learning to eat properly has been the biggest component of maintaining weight.  I can lose weight with the best of them, but maintaining was always elusive until I read this book.

Have you tried any body weight interval workouts?  Any of the Insanity workouts are good.  You'll add strength without a ton of bulk.  Someone also mentioned bodybuilding.com.  There are many routines similar to Insanity, many available for free.  The interval work is nice, as similar to crossfit, it doesn't take a ton of time and you get a lot of afterburn. 

Comment 19 Mar 2015

You can do it!  Start small, something like drink one glass of water for every soda or beer you consume in a day.  Do that for a week, then add something else.  Getting starting is intimidating, but weight loss is best over time.  Easing into it over time is my suggestion.  If you look back at it a year from now, you won't care about taking 4-6 weeks to break yourself into it.  Much like a marathon, just be happy you finished!

Agreed.  You can obviously tell he's working on the jumper.  If he keeps progressing, he'll get his chance.

A man is walking home alone late one foggy Halloween night, when behind him he hears:
BUMP... BUMP... BUMP...
Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the image of an upright casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward him.

BUMP... BUMP... BUMP...
Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket bouncing quickly behind him.
FASTER... FASTER... BUMP... BUMP... BUMP....
He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him. However, the casket crashes through his door, with the lid of the casket clapping.
clappity-BUMP...clappity-BUMP... clappity-BUMP...
on his heels, as the terrified man runs.

Rushing upstairs to the bathroom, he locks himself in. His heart is pounding; his head is reeling; his breath is coming in sobbing gasps.

With a loud CRASH the casket breaks down the door.
Bumping and clapping toward him.
The man screams and reaches for something, anything...

All he can find is a box of cough drops! Desperate, he throws the cough drops at the coffin ...

...and...of...course,

...the coffin stops
