  1. There's lots of dog parks in the Phoenix metro area - you can search them online. Since you'll be southeast in Maricopa, you can go to Cosmo Dog Park - it has a lake and a beach where the dogs can swim.
  2. Ted Lasso on Apple TV is a funny, feel good show. Currently in its first season.
  3. I'm not a climber, so I'll take your word that Honnold is a better climber than Caldwell. Though Caldwell sure seems like he's in the conversation for best climber, and Honnold also thinks he's the greatest ever. After reading Culdeus' comment about Dawn Wall, I watched it last night. Certainly that was a lot harder route than Honnold took, and I think the Dawn Wall route required greater skill as a climber. But it didn't take more guts. In fact, I don't think that there is any "guts" involved in what Caldwell did on the Dawn Wall. It's more stamina and skill - but since they're always clipped in, there isn't really a great risk in falling. I have an appreciation for the incredible athleticism of Caldwell and KJ for climbing Dawn Wall, but I am in awe of the lack of fear shown by Honnold in going free solo (so was Caldwell).
  4. I like The Perfect Shorts from Dockers. The extra side pocket for a cellphone is great. The Perfect Short
  5. Can this review/conclusion possibly be correct? masks don’t work I’m not endorsing that study, but I’m not qualified to determine if it’s accurate. I wear masks in public
  6. My daughter, also in a La County school, has chosen option B, but she and 3 friends are finding a house far from campus. They’re looking for a 4 bedroom house somewhere warm where they can live and do online school together. It’s definitely not a college campus experience, but it beats living at home. Since school is online, they can live anywhere, so they are looking for a large house with amenities (swimming pool, barbecue, etc.), but in a location that’s a lot cheaper than LA County
  7. My daughter's school is in southern CA and has a plan for kids being on campus, but it's dependent on the State of CA and LA County both lifting applicable restrictions. Even if on-campus attendance is offered, it will look a lot different than before CV-19: dorms will single rooms only; on-campus housing priority will go to Freshman, then Seniors, then Juniors; dining hall hours will be limited and eating areas restricted and social distancing tables in effect; no more on-campus school parties; kids will all have to sign an agreement to social distance on campus - those are just some of the many changes facing the kids on campus this year. Because of the nature of the on-campus restrictions, and the very likely possibility that the school switches to on-line classes only, my daughter and her friends are looking into renting a large house (far outside LA County, where it is much cheaper to live) where they can all live together and attend on-line school together.
  8. You wrote before that you couldn’t understand the lyrics when you saw it live. I think understanding the lyrics is critical to the enjoyment of it. Try listening or watching it while reading the lyrics. The writing is historically accurate, succinct and very clever.
  9. Thanks for the heads up about Zion. We read about the crowds, so we’re bringing bikes and biking into the park.
  10. I'm headed to Zion and Bryce for 4 days of hiking. Some of the trails are closed, but most parts of the parks are open. Staying at local hotels.
  11. I had the same results as @Boston Fred re eating extra when I had earned it through exercise, but still losing weight because I stayed under the daily calorie limit. At the same time, I think @DA RAIDERS is right that it’d be best to adjust my portions and daily calorie intake so I naturally eat my daily calorie limit and feel satisfied, without having to rely on eating the extra calories gained by exercise - seems like a better long term plan in case, in the future, I stop (or can’t) exercise.
  12. Thanks for the responses about my 30 min vs 3 x 10 min calorie burn. I usually don't stop during a 30 min run, but there's some days where I'm not feeling it and want to quit after 20 min. On those days, I guess it can't hurt to post another 10-15 min run later in the day anyway (to be sure I make up for any difference in calorie expenditure).
  13. Question for the group: Setting aside any benefits related to cardiovascular or muscular improvement, and only thinking about calories burned, is there any difference between an uninterrupted 30 minute run versus a set of three 10 minute runs separated by a rest period?
  14. I'm in on this challenge. I was in this thread a year ago and lost about 35 lbs counting calories and using the Lose It app. Last year I stopped counting calories and gained back half the weight. I'm 5'11", 195lbs. When I first started counting calories, I was 220lbs. I restricted myself to under 1650 cal/day (often times less than 1500) and it took me 3.5 months to drop 35lbs. The infuriating thing is that, once you diligently count calories for a month or two, you get a very good idea of what is too many calories/day and will cause you to gain weight. So, even though I knew I was eating too much, I kept doing it. I'm hoping to get better at that this time around. Unsolicited advice: pick a handful of meals you like and that are low calorie, and eat them over and over again. I was most successful when I ate a 200 cal breakfast bar (there's dozens of brands and flavors) and a 450 cal lunch (tuna/turkey/roast beef sandwich, no cheese or mayo). Add in 30 min. of cardio exercise (burns about 400 cal), and then you can eat a reasonably large dinner, plus a small dessert (I like Yorks - only 60 cal for the little ones, or the 100 cal Fudge Bars from Costco, or the Healthy 100s Jiffy Pop bags - sometimes I'd have 2 or 3 of these post-dinner desserts) I started about a week ago, but I'm looking forward to a solid month of weight loss and exercise.
