Healthy Fast Food

New favorite! Whataburger has a healthy option that's quite tasty.

I think I've posted about the McDonald's Grilled Chicken Classic. That's old and busted.

New hotness? The grilled chicken sandwich at Whataburger. On a wheat bun!

Putting them way over the top is Coke Zero on tap.

Just avoid the sweet onion rings if you can.

Easy Doughnut Recipe

We used to make these when I was a kid. My son loved them. They are easy and very good.

You will need:

Icing (or powdered/granular sugar or whatever. We used candy melts)
Can of premade biscuits

Heat the oil. Open the biscuits. Put your fingers in the middle of the biscuit and form a hole. Fry them.

For icing, melted candy melts with some oil added to thin them are excellent! Dip the donuts in that and add sprinkles. Or you can put powdered sugar or similar topping in a paper sack and shake the hot donuts in that.

Protip: we used butter flavor biscuits and those were crackpipe good. Specifically ,HEB Hill Country Fare Texas Style Butter Flavor'.

Men Are Just Happier People

This one's been floating around the web, but it's pretty good.


1. If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
2. If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla and Four-eyes.


1. When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it’s only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
2. When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.


1. A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
2. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn’t need but it’s on sale.


1. A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel .
2. The average number of items in the typical woman’s bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.


1. A woman has the last word in any argument.
2. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.


1. A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
2. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.


1. A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
2. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.


1. A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn’t.
2. A man marries a woman expecting that she won’t change, but she does.


1. A woman will dress up to go shopping, go to the gym, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
2. A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.


1. Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
2. Women somehow deteriorate during the night.


1. Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
2. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.


A married man forgets his mistakes. There’s no use in two people remembering the same thing!

P90X Photo Stream: Work in Progress

Update  Feb 18, 2015:

Yup, it's been almost 5 years since I wrote this post. I'm STILL at it.

LOTS of things have changed.

I made that has my progress photos from 2009 to now, tips, recipes and more as I've moved on to P90X2, Insanity, and Body Beast. I really got into it, and also do it as a business now. (Click here if you're into diet and fitness and are looking to make some money off your hobby.)

You can also go to to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and all that fun stuff.

So, wow. Life changer.

And, I'm happier and healthier. :) And I don't miss many workout days. It's RARE.

Original article:

Ok, a few caveats: I'm still working on it. I really can't do it every day. Other pilots know how horrible the schedule can be sometimes. When you only have 8 hours off from the time you step off the plane until you have to fly again, you aren't going to do P90X, or much other than sleep.

Yes folks, 6.5 hours of sleep at best. Write your congressman. And yes, it will cost you a little more on your plane ticket. But increased safety doesn't come free. More time to sleep=less time to work=we need more people for the same amount of flying. Sorry, rant off.

Despite my schedule, I've made progress since returning to work in March 2010.

I'm ready to show my progress.

As you can see, I didn't start off in the best shape, but I'm continuing to work on it.

These photos are made with a cheap camera, and aren't flexed poses, just natural poses. IIRC, all are after a workout, so they all have the same baseline.

Enjoy, barf, or whatever, but P90X and a good diet does work. Just show up and keep hitting play.
