Friday Beat Down

  0550, Today was only the second day all year that I had to wear my sweat bottoms when running. It was 29 degrees and with a strong wind from the north,  pushed the temp down to 19. Nice! Almost every Friday's I do a "Pull -Up" run. This was something we used to do with the students when I was running the Ordnance "A" school here back in the early 2000's. It quickly became infamous among the staff as well. What you do is simply run from one Pull-up bar to the next here on base. It's about a 3…

Back to the Future

A few days ago the FDA published new guidelines on diet.  I don't think anything is made as confusing, or unnecessarily complicated as healthy eating. Not by those who know better, but by the so called experts?  These new guidelines now say that eggs are now ok to eat, and coffee also? That saturated fat and too much sugar and salt aren't good?

Quest Protein Chips

Hey People,     As a true Marine chow hound I'm always looking for a good snack that has some decent nutrition. Recently I came across these "Protein Chips" by Quest. The same people who make the great tasting (some of them are, but not all of them) protein bars. Now these aren't potato chips, you'll know that as quick as you put one in your mouth. They have a different texture, especially after you chew them a bit. Not bad, but different for sure. I've tried all the different flavors and like the BBQ the best. I will tell…
