  1. I haven't been to this site in forever, but I was just creating a flyer to share on FB when I saw someone already made one.  I'll be praying for you guys and sharing that image among my network!
  2. I resigned myself to carry daily when I got my permit. Last time I checked, Sunday was still a day of the week, too.
  3. Not good to hear about the SPAM issue... I'll keep an eye out to see if they nail me too...
  4. http://www.gearhog.com?rf=587686 They don't say what it is except that it is from Surefire, but I'm always in for the chance at free stuff. I haven't bought anything from Gearhog yet, but it seems like it's a dead-a-day type site similar to CamoFire, etc. Anyway, good luck
  5. I thought they were wanding people @ the gate the last few years, so I assumed carry was *not* allowed?
  6. Good for you! I tell you what, I've found encouragement from other people really does help you stay focused and stick to your lifestyle change. Hopefully each of you is encouraging other people to live healthier. I know when my mom got sick and died from cancer in 2010, it rocked my world. I looked at my own 3 kids and could not believe how STUPID it was for me to have so many genetic things stacked against me, and all the while I was running a very high risk of killing myself with poor eating and living habits and flat out being overweight. That was one of the main reasons I sad "no more".
  7. I would actually suggest you look a little further into the "smaller meals per day" concept... I have heard that for years, however I haven't found any current scientific studies that support it as actually boosting your metabolism. Some reading you might be interested in: http://www.leangains.com/2010/10/top-ten-fasting-myths-debunked.html Like I said, I think there is quite a bit to the concept that different things work better/worse for different people - so I won't begrudge anyone who is seeking answers and applying them to improve their lives... keep up the good work :-)
  8. I actually disagree - it is what you eat, and how much - how often really means less, IMHO. I know busting my butt in the gym 6 days a week for 6 months I was still not seeing the results I wanted until I started really paying attention to *what* I was eating, and also paying more attention to when I was eating (the "when" is not conventional though - more scientific to time my food intake to when my body was needing the protein/carbs post-workout). A good suggestion a friend made was "if it's not a meat, fruit, vegetable, or nut - I don't eat it". Trying to avoid things that come in a box or a package is a good starting point for eating cleaner. Probably one of the best things with eating cleaner is the healthier the food, the more of it you get to eat. 3 juicy grilled chicken breast is healthier and lower calories than one fast food hamburger - and you'll feel more full in the process (feeling satiated is a mental thing most of us crave, and is why we tend to fail at "diets").
  9. I have come to realize there are plenty of ways to get there... in 2008 at my heaviest I hit 236lbs (Just under 6'2" tall, age 32 at the time). I started hitting the gym and running a lot, and got it down to 212 or so... I was able to keep it around 215 without too much trouble all the way through November of 2011, where I hit 220 and knew I didn't want to keep climbing. The weekend after Thanksgiving 2012 my wife and I did the Advocare 24 Day Challenge (Search for "challenge" here: http://www.advocare.com/120625782 ). Even though it was about the worst time to "diet", and we both were total slackers on the exercise portion - we managed to each lose 8-9 lbs over that period. I have friends who have lost 30+ lbs using this system, so I know it can get better results than we got. Not satisfied with that, I made a decision I was going to change some things. I normally got up for work @ 5:30am... so I started going to the gym from 4:30-5:30 every morning... 6 days a week. I knew from the past that if I didn't set a schedule and stick to it EVERY DAY, I would fail. And with a wife and kids and a LIFE at home - coming home from work then going back to the gym just would never work. N0 - getting up that early wasn't the easiest thing to adjust to, but it was a schedule, and didn't affect my family time. At this point - I actually enjoy rising that early. The biggest things the Advocare program taught me was that I didn't *have* to eat every meal - since part of that program had me drinking 200 cal. shakes as a mel replacement. I started having a couple of oranges for breakfast, a handfull of almonds for mid-morning snack, and a shake for lunch. Amazingly enough - I didn't die like I thought I would, lol. As of this morning, I weighed 199lbs. I currently have a goal of reaching 190. Ignoring weight as a number - when I measured my body in November of 2011 - compared to now I have gained an inch or more on every measurement - arm, chest, shoulders, thigh, calf - and lost THREE inches off of my waist. My previous size 36 pants and shorts literally fall off of me, and I can fit into some 32 waist clothing articles. Point is - I haven't just lost weight, I have added considerable muscle mass. Over the last 6 months or so, I've shifted things around a bit. I am still working out 6-7 days a week. A month or so ago I started implementing an IF - Intermittent Fasting - program (some info here: www.leangains.com ) The IF program was a good fit for me, since I never really felt the need for breakfast. The IF program has also really let me start to dial in the last bit of fat in the love handles and spare tire area. I am starting to see muscle definition I haven't seen literally since high school. I am quote literally in better shape than I have been since I graduated HS almost 20 years ago. Anyway... it's been a progression, and I am still learning and tweaking to get the results I want. But I'm getting there, and will gladly share and encourage anyone who wants to look at making some changes in their own life. Like I said - there are several ways to get there, you just have to commit.
  10. Got the mount back from last fall's buck... looks good on the wall I think (I have another 9pt on the same wall).
  11. http://www.tn.gov/twra/deerseasons.html Sept. 22 - Jan. 6 this season. Glad to have some January time back on the clock again.
  12. I wouldn't mind an extra week or two in January for bow-only. I'd also like to see the addition of a year-round atlatl season... but I won't hold my breath for that one.
  13. So now that it's over - thoughts?
  14. BTW, thanks for the thread - it reminded me to make an appointment for tomorrow to meet with a lawyer to tidy up our estate planning and some business stuff as well.
