I did get a much welcome offer this morning.  One of my coworkers has offered to go with me shopping for groceries and give me tips on how to select healthy foods and also how to cook them.  This guy is in very good health and only cooks healthy food when he is the one in charge of the meal.  His wife likes to splurge on a little junk food every now and then, but when he is in charge he likes to cook only healthy food.  I may take him up on the offer before long!
Do you shop at Whole Foods? I'm almost certain there is one in Central City. We went to another place up in Layton...the name can't come to memory. I want to say Fresh Market...

I haven't shopped there.  I've always just gone to Walmart or occasionally Smith's.

I love The Fresh Market! I wish they had one around here. Whole Foods is great if you can afford it, but Trader Joes is better if you are on a budget and are looking for healthier items. I've never gone grocery shopping at Wal Mart, so I can't comment on what that's like.

Shopping healthy really isn't that hard though.

I love the Fresh Market too! But I don't shop there much because I'm a cheapskate. I do have to go there to buy alfalfa sprouts because Kroger doesn't carry them. But you can buy ok food at WalMart without breaking the bank. Just stick to fresh foods as much as possible. Anything that resists spoiling is usually bad news. Stick to produce, lean protein, and whole grains. Don't go overboard on potatoes and rice, and avoid flour and sugar as much as possible.

Trader Joes is where we go here in Kansas City - a nice place.

As Memphis said, though, while the places mentioned are more ideal, Walmart also offers surprisingly good and fresh food. Perhaps you should consider planning your meals out in advance.

I mean, as long as BushOK stays away from processed foods, sugars, simple carbs, and eats a lot of vegetables, lean meats, whole grain, complex carbs and the like, he will be fine. I recommend going no carb for 2 weeks and then eating just complex carbs,  but I understand that could be difficult for him to do.

But just use your head. Fast food is bad. Fried foods are bad. Heavy carb meals are bad. Sugar is bad. I don't even recommend fruit, as I hardly ever eat it due to how much sugar is in them, but a banana here and there is good for you. If BushOK feels more comfortable having his friend help him initially, great, but it isn't that hard to do on your own.

Well it's good that this friend is in Utah and not Oklahoma. I imagine their idea of healthy eating is ordering a hamburger with no french fries. And if particularly motivated, leaving off the cheese!

Bushie "coming out" would certainly improve this season dramatically.

To be absolutely truthful, there is no such thing as job security anywhere in any industry and definitely not in this day and age.

Eh, I wouldn't say that. If you're doing your job correctly, there are industries that offer job security.

A woman would be the saving grace of this show. He'll never come out. I'm sure that, like alcohol, he was taught that being gay is an evil choice that only sinners choose to do to piss off their parents.

It's sad that some people are ashamed and scared to show the world that they love someone.. or even to reach out to that one special person. I'm glad we've lived without any regrets.

Yes. I fear BushOK will never know the love we know in our lives, and that, my dear, is a crying shame. I hope he finds his prince charming one day.

Good Friday Evening! It was a really good day to end Week 12.  I've got a few things to do either tonight or tomorrow.  I've got to make a Walmart run and get my oil changed.  I do have to make time tonight to work out and weigh in and complete Week 1 of The Biggest Loser Challenge.  So, I will probably do that after the Utah Jazz/LA Lakers game at 11:00 pm.  I'm in no hurry for bed time tonight, so it may be 1:00 am before I hit the sack, because I've got all day tomorrow to run my errands.  This coming week, Week 13, will be interesting.  I'll work the normal 40 hours, but I may get in some overtime Thursday night, January 31 - Friday morning, February 1 10:00 pm-2:00 am.  That would be some sweet overtime!  I can make my decision as late as Thursday Midday.  Stay tuned on that.

This is Reply 1900.  I will be locking this thread when it gets over 2,000.  I already have plans and a name figured out for Season V!

Will season 5 rebound from the shortcomings of season 4?

This season was basically a disaster.

BushOK NEEDS to find himself a hot, fresh lady, the type that can whip him into shape both literally and figuratively, the type that can take him shopping for healthy food, show him how to cook and take care of himself, and to give him a sip of wine, just enough for him to sleep it off for 14 hours the next morning.

I don't know about the rest of the audience, but frankly, the plot arc this season has been a disaster. The weather. The job he will inevitably lose. The A/C theft that was simply forgotten about. The teasers about the trip to Wal Mart that will likely be the first thing to begin next season. We need action. We need sex. We need something to fire us up - an unplanned pregnancy, an arrest, a night where BushOK just gets absolutely trashed, something to peak our interest again. I certainly hope he has something cooking in his over for next season. I am not sure how much longer I can hold on hoping for another Susan/Tiffanye (with an E, mind you), to come along.

Tonight's workout is over. It was just a "challenge" today and the weekly weigh-in. According to the Wii Balance Board, I lost 3 pounds this week! The kitchen scales show 2 pounds! This next week (January 26 - February 1), I've got a scheduled work out on Saturday, Monday, and Wednesday, leaving me to do my own workout Sunday and Thursday followed by a challenge and weigh-in on Friday. I'll take Tuesday night off and do a very light workout.

On the Biggest Loser TV show, a "challenge" is a physical activity game.

What decision is there to make?  When someone offers you overtime, the only acceptable answer is yes, unless you're having a heart attack or your appendix has burst (not that you have appendicitis - you can work through that; to say "no" to overtime, one must be on the verge of imminent death).

I will most likely take the OT, especially to help out with some of the VTO I took earlier in the month.  There should be more overtime next week after work (Feb 4-8), so I will definitely jump on what I can.
