Have you ever tasted home made Ice cream. Holy cow, Tac has reached new levels of super hero status with this latest advent gift. Ironically, or not, the boys are the main chefs for the sweet frozen treat. Tac's preatty sure we produced about 40,000 calories worth of Creamy goodness over the last 4 days. This is exactly why Mama and Tac bought this machine, not the calories, just to enjoy creative outlets with the tribe.

It's been averaging about 2 degrees here lately. So, we make ice cream...what the fruit. Oh well the cold seems to creep into the brain and lends towards insanity and that's why we have 16 quarts of Ice Cream in the freezer while Tac is trying to lose weight.

Must resist, must resist...yes.

It is working. Tac is down a full 20 pounds from last year at this time and is heading to knock off another 10 before training begins in late January. Last year was the backward year where a bottle of wine every night during the holidays and tons of snacks made the spandex a bit tight on your resident superhero. Whoo whoo. Have not seen these numbers on the scale since the early formation days of the Tribe. Good grief, guess kids will do that to a dad. Well it feels good to be lighter entering my fourth Tri season. Tac's always known that to really see good bike times (for tac thats 6 hour IM rides) I needed to drop weight. So that makes anticipation for the upcoming season that much sweeter.

Man, I gotta update my side bar soon. The plate spinning quotient is a tad high right now, but Tac does see some breathing room in sight! Have a great weekend!

Oh, no worries, caped hero. That picture of you on the scale totally does you justice.

I'll trade you a dozen or so sugar cookies for the best quart the tribe can come up with!

Ice cream is my weakness. I can eat it in the cold as well as the hot weather too. But it doesn't help my weight loss goals either!

ice cream is my weakness, too.

i'm still praying about YOU KNOW WHAT...God is working this thing out...and it's scaring me!

Great idea with the ice cream machine. One of our favorites pasttimes is making fresh ornage juice with an old fashion juicer!

Oh yeah... with 40,000 calories of the good stuff at your house, I'm sure you need a place to send your overflow. Sooooo,

No need to thank me, I'm just helpful that way.
