Diets been pretty good. Haven't had a major excursion off the reservation in a while. Bout the worst thing was having a few Black and Tans to celebrate St. Patricks Day. Tanita scale said 156 this morning and <10% body fat for the first time in a while, so go figure.
Picked up this remote meat thermometer at Walmart. The display is a little cheap, and I constantly have to switch from Celsius to Fahrenheit, but overall I'm pretty happy with it. The base transmits up to 1000 feet (so they say), so it is awesome to coordinate meals with it while either at the stove or on the couch when something is on the grill. Really would have come in handy over the winter when the temp was much colder.
Also we watched a program on Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution on ABC (here is his official site). I really find this facinating and can relate to the struggles he portrays on the telly. Basically, he goes to a grade school in a town that has one of the worst health records in the country and tries to reform the nutrition menu. He starts out by looking at what the kids are fed now and it is indeed revolting.
Obviously, they are conforming to USDA standards which means a lot of refined carbohydrates in addition to almost exclusively processed foods. The old guard from the kitchen staff up through administration, the local radio station, and news paper is reluctant to change and wondering why the hell this guy is interfereing with their 'working' nutritional construct. I'll be curious to see how sucessful he is in upcoming episodes.
