Responsibility 199, what is it?

Responsibility 199 is a belief; I believe that to be healthy and to increase my longevity I need to weigh 199 pounds or less...
Responsibility 199 is a need; I need to reduce my weight, reduce my percentage of body fat, and the elevated threat of disease my present condition presents...
Responsibility 199 is a mission; I recognize that achieving 199 will be a challenge, perhaps the hardest I have ever undertaken...
Responsibility 199 is a commitment; I acknowledge that I must commit to action, commit to change, commit to myself and those I love to achieve this mission, to increase my longevity...
Responsibility 199 is ME.

Walking Catfish Wednesday

Great walk yesterday after work. Took on my 2 mile neighborhood loop for the first time in a long time. Maybe first time since last winter to be honest. It took me 32:50 to complete, a far cry from my best time of 29:30 on that loop. Not upset at all that I was that far off my best pace. It gives me something to challenge myself on as I get my mojo back.

Great eats yesterday too. Baked up a mess of catfish, here is what a mess of catfish looks like before...
These were in my freezer for a couple of months. A work mate of mine is a fisherman & hunter as am I. So a couple of times a year we have a game-exchange. Over the summer I traded him a mess of venison chops, brats & bacon for a bag of catfish & two pheasants. It's only right to share ones harvest with a neighbor!

Here is what they look like after giving them some love before cooking...
The dish on the left and another like it not pictured are traditional corn meal & spice coated fillets. The dish on the right is not coated in corn meal or any other starchy/carby coating, thus a bit healthier. That dish ese are seasoned in different flavor combos. Top to bottom: Chili Crusted,... Lime Pepper,... Garlic-Maple.

I oven baked all the fish versus frying in oil to keep them healthier still. Whoa these were some serious delicious! These were small fillets by standard, so my mind was telling me I could affrd to eaten six fillets. But I just had two as hard as it was to stop there.
Hey I wanted to let all know that I've been reading your blogs but have had a problem commenting on some of you that use Blogger. Oddest thing, I get that error when trying to comment on some blogger blogs, not all. The ones where the comments are left in pop-ups, I do not have a problem with. But when the comment is made on the page itself (like mine) and I have to select 'select profile' for google account, that is when I get this error. I am signed in, I have to be as I can post on my blog, edit, etc, yet never in the upper right corner does it show me signed in. I've posted a cry for help in the blogger help forum, we'll see if someone rescues me.

Enjoy This Day!

Responsibility 199 - Gotta Do It!!


  1. That fish looks yummy. Maple-garlic you say? That is an interesting combination of flavors, will have to try.
    Good job on stopping yourself from eating it all. I don't know if I would be that good. :)
    Blogger misbehaves quite often.

  2. I couldn't post comments for some blogger comments for a couple of days then, suddenly, I could. Keep trying. Your fish looks good. Wish you were my neighbor, although all I'd have to barter is tomatoes and basil from my garden . . . .

  3. Love catfish. I had some the other day at a restaurant but it wasn't a healthy version like yours. I need to get some frozen catfish fillets and try it your way.

  4. Mmm...that fish looks delicous!

    I've heard that if you uncheck the "remember me" box, that fixes it. Good luck!

  5. Love catfish! I've never had I baked, though. Looks yummy!

  6. I had that problem with Blogger. Finally I signed out, then signed back in. I think what caused it was one day when I signed in thru my Blackberry, so I guess it didn't recognize me when I got back to my computer.

    Love the catfish, too, and we eat it once a week. Yummmm!

  7. MMMMMmaple garlic!
    Love it!
    Walk, guy, walk!

  8. Not much of a catfish guy, but it am a big share your catch and game guy!!! Glad you are walking. Challenge your pace, but do so sensibly.

  9. How did I miss this post! Yahoo for you walking again & yes, push to get back to that personal best & better! :-)

  10. Holy woah that catfish looks delicious!!!!
