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”

So yesterday, I mentioned that I had a few weight loss challenges headed my way.  Last night was the night that Amanda and I celebrate the anniversary of our first date (19 years!!!).  It also happened to be the 2nd Wednesday of the month with is the scheduled Annex Bar Tweetup.  However, after soccer was Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

I started posting on this blog about my weight loss to keep myself accountable.  That’s not to suggest that anyone is reading this drivel, but just as accountability is key to success when quitting dip, I strongly believe that it will work for me here as well. The last couple of days I haven’t been Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

The tone of this blog is about to change drastically.  It’s no longer going to be a poker blog (at least primarily).  The reason for this is two fold.

I’ve been struggling with my weight for quite some time now.  As of last night, I’ve got a plan in place to fix it.  Now that I’ve got a definitive plan I’m very optimistic about the potential for success.  I weighed 227.0 this morning and I’m hoping that if I stick to what I’ve laid Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

I have yet to miss a day at the gym since I made this change (weekday that is).  This is part of my day. I’ve been doing 30 minutes on the bike/elliptical and then 20-30 on the other.  I did have one day where I did a straight hour on the elliptical and while it Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Being a HUGE swimming fan the “best” part of the Olympic games are officially over for me. I tell you, that Phelps kid can swim huh? You think he practices much? Not sure if anyone saw it but there was a story on the Olympic coverage about how much he eats… something on the order Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

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 “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

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 “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”
