It's the waiting that kills me
Sunday, May 20, 2012      1 comments

One of the hardest parts of any diet plan is the waiting around. I mean, if you don't have anything especially useful to do, or if you're tired, or if it's too late to go to the gym, or any of the million other reasons we wind up sitting around... Read more

I have two new "edges" in the works. One is legal and one is kinda not-so-much but not quite illegal-ish. The first is laser liposuction. My mom saw a Groupon deal for a clinic near me and bought me 4 treatments, though I have no idea if ... Read more

So I weighed in today for the first time in exactly 2 months. 310, just where I had guessed it. Of course, I know I can be down to 300 in a week if I push it, since most of that is just water weight, etc. It's the next 30 pounds that really i... Read more
Has it really been 6 months?

Yes, yes it has. And I haven't made any significant progress. I've flip flopped between getting on and falling off the wagon for months. This past month has been the worst, and I've only worked out once the entire time. Still, I am fitter th... Read more
Reaping the benefits

Had a great day today. It was a 40k tournament day, which usually means at least some kind of cheats, but I stayed strong all day long. Took vitamins and chugged water while other people were chugging mountain dew, had a small turkey sandwich ... Read more
Good to be losing again.

Dropped some significant pounds last week, and despite an initial celebratory cheat day, I'm sticking hard and fast to my diet, and upping my exercise significantly this week. Having serious sweet cravings but not giving in to them yet, gonna s... Read more
Feeling quite good.

Had some setbacks recently, but they only motivated me to buckle down and hit it harder than before. My buddy Steve came down on leave from the Navy for the first time ever, so of course we had to party and get wasted like every night for a wee... Read more

I had a first the other night, a first in my entire lifetime. A cute girl actually asked *me* out on a date. At first I was so confused by it I thought I must have been misunderstanding the whole affair. So I went out with her, we had drinks ... Read more
Rant. Gotta vent.

I'm sore today, both in body and spirit. I wrecked myself in the gym, in a good way, and I'm more sore in my back now than I have been in a long while. It's painful, but I'm going to hit the gym in half an hour and wreck myself again on the ch... Read more
Working on it.

Okay, September was largely a bust when it comes to my diet, since I only had one week of good numbers all throughout and I gained some of it back. October, I have declared, is going to be a month of massive achievement. I have a goal set at 2... Read more
End of an era

Well, my best friend is gone to the middle east now, and I won't see him for at the very least a full year. Probably closer to a year and a half. I'm bummed that he's gone, but I'm happy for him. And I'm also happy that the extended "farewell... Read more

So There are a couple of "yays" and a couple of "whoopses" today. Last night I went out to dinner at IHOP with my besty, both of us celebrating different things. Good, good food. Bad, bad for me. I know better than to use food as a reward, b... Read more

I just ran farther than I've ever run before. I went a full 5k, 3.1 miles, without stopping or slowing down. That's enormous for me. Granted, it was slow as hell, about the speed of a determined power-walker (4 miles per hour, 15 minute miles... Read more

My bestie is heading to Saudi Arabia for a year, leaving in only a week from today. He's a private defense contractor, basically a mercenary with a few caveats. Dude's killed like 200 people, and those are just his confirmed kills. Doesn't co... Read more
