No Eating Here Tonight

Have I mentioned that Boa is on an ongoing diet since January 1st?

Well, yes, he is and I'm proud to report that he's gone cold turkey and sworn off rice for 26 days and counting.


I hope he would stop drinking carbonated stuff though and start a work out regimen. But every bit counts.

We will do a weigh in at this month's end.

I was rummaging thru our medicine storage box last Sunday when I came upon 6 tablets of 300MG Carnicor, which was the L-Carnithine tablets I bought for Boa last year to help him lose weight.

Took one pill. No immediate effect.

Took a pill before shift ended last night and then, whoa.

My stomach started rumbling. I was wide awake until 5am! Slept for three hours and then I was off and running. It's like having a measly three hour sleep didn't matter. Didn't even have a single sip of caffeine for today.

Are diet pills supposed to have this effect?  Well, I would never know now because I'm not gonna take those pills again. Ever.

Maybe I'll just take up sports again. Maybe, capoeira. A plan of mine 4 years ago that have taken a backseat among others.

One of life's little but painful annoyances.

You know how you sometimes cut your toenails a little bit too much near the flesh part and then you'll get your toe stubbed?

For Last Year's Words Belong to Last Year's Language

This is a belated holiday greetings from me and my family.

Last month and up until last week was a whirlwind of parties, events, and 2 very special weddings (Apolo-DeJesus and Espinosa-Dancalan) that we had to attend. There was no opportunity to sit and gather my thoughts as I usually do when a year ends.

And so we're wishing everyone a very Happy New Year.

Hope everyone will be safe and healthy and prosperous.
