As I said in my last post I’m going to use this blog as a diet diary and a tracking method to keep track of what I’m eating.  I’m playing with the format of the posts a bit, but I think I’ll do something like this. BREAKFAST: nothing Never have been a big breakfast fan… Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on Monday 8/11/08 – 229.5 lbs – 20.5 lbs To Goal

Not sure why but I was having a brutal bit of acid reflux yesterday. Being an admitted hypochondriac, I of course starting thinking the worst. I tell you, when I get like this it’s like I’m just waiting to die. This obviously is a TERRIBLE way to go through life (especially with an awesome wife Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on Another Battle With Heartburn… Time For A Change

Well, I finally got on the scale to find a lower number today which felt DAMN good… haven’t been to the pool or the gym in a couple of days and I really need to get there, but I’m super busy today so it’s not going to be today.  Will have to try and get Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on Day 4 – 231.5 (- 0.5 lbs)

Kind of irritated today… didn’t eat any carbs yesterday and I didn’t drop so much as half a pound.  So, I figure one of two things have happened… either hidden carbs (which I kind of doubt) or some fat is finally turning into muscle from all the lifting, running and swimming I’ve been doing.  In Continue reading “”

Well, the first day was not good from a carb standpoint… I completely forgot that we had a shit ton of pizza left over from the Superbowl so I had a couple of pieces for lunch which messed up my carb day.  I did however go to the pool and have a prett good workout.  Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on First day on my diet — 231.5 (+/- 0.0 lbs)

So I weighed in at 234 this AM.  Not too bad considering what I ate this weekend.  We had a birthday part for my son yesterday afternoon with some friends & family.  The weather was absolutely incredible!!!  (thank God, cause our air conditioner is on the fritz and it was like 95 on Friday when Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on My Stupid Brain, My Son’s Stair Surfing, Etc.

So I went to the Lizard last night to meet up with my buddies…. except for the fact that my buddies weren’t there,  the plan worked great.  Now, in their defense I did get there about an hour after I expected to.  In part due to some stuff going on around the house (my wife Amanda had Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on Cavs Game, Diet Day 2, etc…

Split some meatballs with my son tonight.  Also had some salami and some cheese.  Feeling pretty good right now and I’m off to the bar to watch my Cavs beat the Spurs tonight.  It would be AWESOME for the Cavs to bring home a victory…  I’ve got to watch how many beers I drink tonight (on Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on Atkins Day 1 Dinner…

As I said before, I’m fat, out of shape and sick of it.  As of this AM, I’m starting on a modified Atkins diet – no carbs.  By modified, I mean I’m not going to eat all the garbage that that diet allows you to eat all the time (i.e. bacon, eggs, etc.)  I WILL Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on Diet… Day 1

Ok, this has gone on long enough… I’m fat and quite frankly I’m fucking sick of it.  I was an athlete for YEARS… then I went to college, stopped being an athlete, starting drinking a TON of beer and I got fat.  I weighed in at 236.5 this AM and from here on out that’s Continue reading “”
