Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Based upon your unrealized weight loss goals, I'd assumed that you'd made room for a wide variety of pork ribs in your life.

No. I don't get out of the city too much (other than for rides). The car I bought back in July still has less than 2,200 miles on it.

So I bought a watch while in VA and earlier today I had about 14 browser tabs open looking at other watches.

I think it's technically in the city, but barely. I would not ride my bike there, necessarily, but if you get out thataway you may want to try it. Very good prices and the best soon dubu (soft tofu stew) around. Jong Ka Jib Soft Tofu Restaurant | Philadelphia Magazine

Dang indeed!

FWIW, I hadn't actually weighed myself until I got to Thailand. According to the hotel bathroom scale on the first night, I was actually down 10 lbs from where I started in January (190-->180). Unless my metric conversion is off or the scale was wildly inaccurate, that's pretty encouraging. Not the 15 lbs I wanted initially but I'll take it.

I also managed to lose weight there because we spent so much time swimming and the villa we stayed in for 4 nights was literally built on a cliff, so there was lots of running up and down stairs all day. I'm also a loser and rode the stationary trainer in the hotel for the nights I wasn't at a villa.

But yes, baked goods.

I googled it. It's only when you put the stuff at temps above 200. So people making nutella brownies, muffins, etc. should probably stop.
You'd think they'd just change the formula now that they know about it.

Also, I'm going to die of cancer because I once ate a nutella calzone (it was not very good).

Ewwww, sauce on meat. You do that when you have terrible quality meats and don't know how to cook them. Saucing pre cook is fine, but afterwards... not for me.

I'm going to have some good beef ribs maybe this week. Been a loooong time since I've had some remarkable ribs.

My MIL does them with a spicy dry rub. The sauce isn't really necessary because they come out juicy and delicious, I just love Carolina vinegar-based BBQ sauce on anything/everything

Christ, now I'm hungry too.

Speaking of good food, my family went to NYC (without me) today and are eating at a top restaurant called Bouley. To add insult to injury, it's my birthday. So I am stuck at work all day while they are having a blast in NYC for my birthday.

I'm sure that you did better on your trip than I did on mine. I probably left VA close to 5 lbs heavier. The in-laws were pissing me off with the frequency and poor nutritional value of the meals. After a couple days, I just stopped eating lunch because I was feeling constantly bloated. It was ridiculous.

BBQ smoked over oak is a poor imitation. And the fruit and edible nut woods are cute but meh. Hickory is the real deal. The best flavor without any extremes. But if you really like a powerful, acrid smoke flavor, then you must have mesquite. And the place to get it is...drum roll, please,...Ta Da...TEXAS. BBQ taste, like everything else is just bigger in Texas.

I have seen maybe three people on road bikes with actual matching kit and I stopped walking and stared at them like some kind of small town hick. LoP is one of the few mountain bikers I've seen and definitely the only one on a plus bike. He is noted and applauded by people around town and around Walmart for going to work on one of his bikes in rain, shine, or snow. As far as I know, he always waves unless we're on the tandem and then it's my *job*.

I've had some killer heartburn the last two days. Annoying!

On the plus side I have an interview tomorrow. It's a contract job that would end on 6/30, but it could be a foot in the door at a pretty good employer in the area. The pay is pretty good too.
