    The Whole Milk Diet: Day Four

    2011 - 05.19

    Today’s Weight: 125.2

    Today was a good day. My digestive system seems like it’s starting to get used to such a large amount of milk. I didn’t feel nearly as bloated and really didn’t have to put a whole lot of effort into the drinking the milk. There were no ridiculous trips to the bathroom other than having to pee about 27,000 times. I weighed the same amount as yesterday, but that’s to be expected somewhat, as I’m in my weight fluctuation range of 5 lbs. or so.

    I ate a pretty light breakfast of corn flakes in the cafeteria at work, so I was pretty hungry when I got to lunch. I’d bought one of those Lean Cuisine steamer things since I’ve had some good ones in the past at my parents’ house. This one was “sweet and savory barbecue” or something like that, and quite frankly, it tasted like Fancy Feast catfood mixed with reheated rice. I choked down as much of that as I could and grabbed a big chocolate chip cookie from the cafeteria for dessert.

    After work, I went to meet up with my bro and some friends to skateboard. I still hadn’t had a really good meal all day so I was swung by Taco Bell and got some Tacos. This is where I can tell a difference with this Whole Milk Diet. Normally even if I was pretty hungry, I wouldn’t finish all my tacos. I sorta just get tired of eating. Not today. I finished them all up and I swung by QuikTrip on the way home and grabbed a bratwurst. Even as I sit here  writing this I could probably go for something else to eat.

    Working out is also going well. I’ve gotten through all the soreness and I’m starting to see some results. I’ll stress again that I’m not doing anything really ridiculous, just pushups, situps, curls, shrugs, and dips. I guess “toning” sort of exercises.

    I think this weekend will really be an indicator of how this diet is going. I typically eat out more on the weekends, so we’ll see how my appetite is affected. Stay tuned.

    The Whole Milk Diet: Day Two

    2011 - 05.17

    I didn’t weigh myself today because I took the day off to go to the Braves game. I slept in this morning then woke up and ate a couple of microwave sausage biscuits and washed down with a glass of milk. That’s all the milk I drank till about 9:00 PM. Me and Bill put down some beers at the game and then went to Moe’s n Joe’s and ate dinner and washed it down with some more. So here I am playing catchup.

    Drinking this amount of whole milk everyday is NO LAUGHING MATTER!!! We should have some good results tomorrow, but for now I’m having to just power through.

    Tires, Motor Oil, and Lawnmower Blades

    2010 - 05.12

    In addition to this burgeoning website of awesome, I also write for a site called Helium. It’s essentially a huge repository of user submitted information, just like a million other websites out there, but this one pays you. Not much at first, you really have to work at it and prove yourself, but I’m beginning to make some headway. It’s got a rating system that’s pretty cool where you’re ranked against other writers for each article and earn “writing stars”. If you’re consistently ranked high against your peers and you’ve written a bunch of articles, you get a higher upfront payment, and obviously, higher ranked articles are seen more often and earn more residual money. You also rate your peers’ articles and earn “rating stars” accordingly. Take a look at what I’ve done recently, and maybe  you’ll learn something.

    How to sharpen lawn mower blades
    If your lawnmower doesn’t seem like it cuts as well as it used to, if it bogs down in thicker grass or leaves your lawn looking like it was beat down rather than cut cleanly, chances are your lawnmower blade needs sharpening.

    How to change the motor oil in a car
    Changing the oil in your own vehicle is a relatively simple task that can save you money, provided you don’t mind getting a little dirty. Before you get started, however, you need to do a little homework and possibly purchase a few tools.

    Why is car tire pressure important?
    Take a look at the tires on your car. When was the last time you checked your air pressure? I’d be willing to bet that it probably wasn’t recently. If you’re like most drivers, you most likely don’t give the air pressure in your tires a minute’s thought until one of them goes flat. This can be both a costly and dangerous oversight.

    What the numbers on your tire mean
    Take a look at the sidewall of the tires on your car. There are all sorts of numbers on there that look a lot like gibberish to the untrained eye. But, armed with a little knowledge, these numbers are easily deciphered and can give you all the information you need about your tires. There are three primary areas on the sidewall you should concern yourself with, the size and service description, the Department of Transportation number, and the North American Load and Pressure Description.

    What do the numbers on a tire mean?
    A slightly different version of the article above
    To the untrained eye, looking at all the numbers and gibberish on the side of tire must seem like looking at hieroglyphics. But armed with a little knowledge, they’re easy to figure out. There are three main sets of numbers you need to concern yourself with on the side of a tire; the DOT number, the size, and the service description.

    Tips for maintaining your car tires
    Tire maintenance is an often overlooked portion of overall vehicle care, but its importance cannot be stressed enough. After all, tires are the only part of your vehicle touching the ground. There’s a lot more to tire maintenance than just occasionally wandering around your car and making sure they aren’t flat and that there’s still some tread left. Poorly maintained tires can affect your wallet, ride quality, and most importantly, your safety.

    Proper maintenance for car tires
    An improved version of the article above
    Tire maintenance is one of the most overlooked aspects of vehicle care. Your tires are the only thing separating your vehicle from the road and if something should go wrong the results can be disastrous. Many people will purchase a set of tires and never think twice about them until one goes flat. This is entirely the wrong way to handle tire maintenance.

    What to do if there is a cut on the sidewall of your tire
    No matter how carefully you drive, eventually it’s going to happen; you’re going to get a flat tire
    . The most important thing, however, is to never drive on a flat tire. Always pull over immediately and put your spare tire on the vehicle. Driving on a flat tire can cause the rim to cut into the sidewall inside the the tire, severely degrading its structural integrity.

    How to fix a flat tire
    To the uninformed, fixing a flat tire may seem like a daunting task, but armed with the proper knowledge, it’s a relatively simple process. There are essentially three steps: Removing the tire from your car, determining if the puncture is repairable, and making the repair.

    How to tell if you need a front end alignment
    Having the front end alignment checked on your vehicle is one of the simplest things you can do to prolong the life of your tires. Despite popular thought, the alignment of your vehicle doesn’t affect the ride or steering function of your vehicle nearly as much as it affects tire wear. Before explaining how to determine if you need an alignment, let’s explore what a front-end alignment actually accomplishes.

    Nothing groundbreaking, but now you know a hell of a lot more about tires. Plus, you can sharpen a lawnmower blade. Go forth and prosper.

    This is what you’ve been waiting your entire life for. A bumper sticker so completely pointless, that you can’t help but purchase it and ruin your car’s paint job. All proceeds directly benefit me.
