"M" for Metabolism! "Haaa" on you Mr. Cheesecake!

Well Christmas is over and I had a great and relaxing time…I hope everybody else had a great time too. From viewing some of your websites, I see that you did. =o) Boy I ate well over the break too, from cheesecake covered in raspberry sauce to beers with standing rib roast…MMMMMmmmm, Good! However it really looks like my new metabolism has saved my butt this year round. I didn’t work out for a few days while I was down on the island so I was really expecting the worse when I did my “check-in,” but to my surprise I still lost a pound! =o) I have no idea how that happened with the beers and just plain good food I consumed, but I’m not going to question it and jinks it, but rather except it! Hehehehehe!

I have several little house projects I plan to take care of, with what is remaining of my break, but at this very moment I feel like kicking back on my couch typing this and being lazy…Aaaaaa, life is good.

So what is everybody doing for New Years by the way? I myself am broke as hell after the holidays, so I might actually bring it in a bit low key for a change…who knows. Whatever it is, it sure as hell better not take any cash, because as the saying goes you can’t get blood from a stone. LOL!

Damn You Number Sixty-One! You Elusive Bitch!

Okay about two months ago I started adding pushups to my daily routine...Just once a day mind you, mainly in the evening before crashing out or after doing my usual exercises. Well I started off barely being able to do fifteen, before almost busting that little vain we all have in our forehead – LOL! Well now I’m always able to reach fifty, fifty-five all the way up to sixty…but damn it I can seem to make it past sixty. Now yes I can do it sloppy and all…but I mean past sixty with steady and proper form. So I say damn you sixty-one you cold hearted biooottcchh of a number, you SUCK!

A Wonderful CGI Short Film

I came across this incredible CGI short film This Wonderful Life by Liam Kemp who pretty much learned everything on his own. The remarkable thing about this CGI is that he did it on his old "home style" Athlon 1.4Ghz machine using mainly 3DStudioMax. Basically "off the shelf" software tools that any of us could get our hands on and play with. None of this was studio only type of stuff...very cool! Read more about it here: More on Liam Kemp and is work.

I really wish my computer graphic skills could have gotten to this point, maybe one day I'll be able to play around with my copy of StudioMax and get halfway there - LOL

Something Cool...And Free!

When I say free I mean don't have to worry about any damn Adaware crap or anything like that. The program I'm talking about is Konfabulator, and although just recently picked up by Yahoo they have kept it free. The only thing I think they've tried to add is at the install point where it asks if you want the Yahoo Toolbar (just uncheck the box and your fine.) The coolest thing about Konfabulator is all the neat and for a large part useful add-ons (widgets they call them.) There area over 1,500 widgets to browse through and they are all free! The program itself resides in memory and has a very low "CPU footprint," maybe 1 to 2% CPU usage with several widgets running. You basically can change you whole XP or even Mac desktop around and make it a real interactive tool. Check out the links bellow for the details if you like...But do yourself a favor and download and install this puppy! =o) Oh and no worries, you can tweak the hell out of most of the widgets to customize their look just the way you like it.

The Widget Engine - Windows

The Widget Engine - Mac OS

Here are some Widgets that I highly recommend adding to the standard ones:

Stormy Weather!

Trash Bin Deluxe

Volume Bar


Retrograde3 - Clock

CPU Meter

If you have a laptop and with WiFi, these two are great to have too.

Battery Meter

Wireless Meter

Here I Am!

I'm Back...While a 1/3 Of Me Isn't

Okay so this if my foray back into the blogging community. It’s been something like eight months since I typed my last entry into my old blog site Krez’s Pad. This time around I decided to keep things simpler, at least as far as my involvement goes, so I decided to go with a free blogging approach. It’s going to take me some time to learn the new code used to tweak the stuff to make my site just the way I want it.
So what have I been doing, well lots of work at the office, but that has come to an end for now with the conclusion of the huge campus wide wireless project – WOOT! I’ve started a few long term projects on the house involving some simple electrical wiring and repainting all the rooms and getting away from the traditional boring white (this is the project that should take the most time.) I also purchased a new High-Def projector that I’ll be installing into the living room to go with my home theater and moving the older projector into the master bedroom where I’ll be building another large theater wall screen, so I can a have a theater in the bedroom as well. ;o) All of this should be a lot of fun and a bit of fun learning too.
I’ve been keeping up with my exercise program and as of today I’m at the 11-month mark. I’m so amazed at the changes I have been able to accomplish with very little more than changing some small things in my everyday lifestyle. I simply continued to stay active each day for at least 30min (Elliptical glider and walking) and eating better, but not really dieting. I eat whatever I want for the most part but I keep it reasonable(PATOS Rule!!)you can get crazy with food at times but not all the time, that is the trick! Like I said before I can’t believe the changes I’ve almost lost 11” in the waist and 6” to 8” in the hips and thighs. I’m actually starting to get some real cuts, not just “hints” of definition, and I can honestly say my abs have really starting to show the “box” look. Now with that being said the abs are still going to take the longest to be complete, but I don’t think more than another 6-months until I can count each “checker.” Oh I almost forgot the amount of weight I’ve lost…I’ve lost about 60-pounds and I’m around 188 now. I’m hoping to have some pictures (before and after) up around the 12th month mark. Well wish me luck. Truthfully though it really hasn’t been all that hard to do what I’ve done, it’s almost funny to me how little I feel that I have had to do to get to where I am…A few small changes in your everyday life, spread out over a period of time, can make huge differences! The only “downer” I guess, if you were to pick one out, is that it takes time…There is no getting around that, but the results are real and long term! (I hope that is - hehehe) See you at the twelve month mark! =o)
