If you’ve been following along, you know this has been a pretty long (and to this point) and rather sad journey. I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “failing to plan is planning to fail.” So have I. And I fancy myself a pretty analytics guy who tends to lay things out and makes a ton Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on The Plan Day 1 – 244

I’ve been saying it literally for years. I know what needs to be done. The question is, can I do it? I was an athlete for nearly all of my life until I was in my mid twenties. Stop swimming eight miles a day, start drinking eight beers a day… you do the math. I Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on I Know What Needs To Be Done – Can I Do It?

I knew it was going to be bad. I just didn’t know how bad. I woke up this morning and got on the scale after a weekend in Indianapolis visiting my college room mate. And I’m officially the heaviest I’ve ever been. I can’t even begin to tell you how disappointing this is, but I Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

I’m resurrecting the Behind The Bar series that I started on another blog. This will be used to keep tracking of my drinking throughout the month. All of those posts have been migrated here so the history of the project is available. This post will be updated during the month of September 2015 as I have a night out Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on Behind The Bar For September 2015

First off, I’m not going to bury the lead. Today is September 11th and I refuse to not acknowledge that fact even though this post isn’t about the events of that fateful day. #NeverForget. The plans for last night were changed pretty drastically based on the fact we had some terrible weather.  The baseball game Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

So I got on the scale this AM for the first time since Friday.  I actually was expecting / hoping to see a smaller number than what I got.  While it’s a great thing that I went through the weekend without seeing the number increase I was really thinking I’d be down a bit since Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Here we are… another Friday and the number on the scale really hasn’t moved.  I went out on Wednesday evening and had beers which is never a good thing for the waistline but have kept my other “splurges” to a minimum. I took a long introspective look at myself the other day and I realized Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

I woke up this morning and jumped on the scale as I do every morning.  While I can’t say that I was happy with the number that I saw, I can say I’m excited that it was less than the number the last time I wrote a post here.  That’s a good thing. It was Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

I was not surprised to see the number on the scale this AM.  Since my last post I’ve had a couple of really rough days on the diet front: Thursday – post work drinks / dinner with a buddy at the Winking Lizard Friday – birthday celebration for my sister-in-law Saturday – wedding for my Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on 236.0 – No Surprise Here

Being down 4.5 lbs is always a good thing, but I know that I’ve got some weight challenges on the horizon.  This evening for example, I’m going to the Annex for our monthly tweet up.  In all likelihood I won’t be eating there this evening, but even if I stick to say 2 beers (which Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on 234.0 – Challenges Lay Ahead

So the wife and I are starting the Digest Diet today.  Honestly I’m not really sure how we’ve come to this point.  Amanda swears that it was my idea, and I suppose there was a part of me that was interested in trying it.  That said, I’m a firm believer in sticking with stuff that’s Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on 228.5 – The First Day Of The Digest Diet

So when I got on the scale yesterday morning I weighed in at a whopping 229.0.  Uh oh… not good.  But honestly I wasn’t all that shocked.  Over the weekend we went to a first communion party for Nadia where I drank too much beer and ate too much pizza & pasta.  Then on Sunday Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”
