Download PDF

Today we will perform a scientific analysis…

of what you ask????  Of poker of course…

Is Poker Fattening?

Is it possible?  We at the man blog are going to delve deep into this universal question…

Yesterday I awoke to 220.8 pounds, or so the scale said….

Today…..

226

What???  Wait one second….is poker making me fat?

porker stars, man blog, fat poker

So I ate reasonably yesterday…enough…ish…

For dinner I had a lovely bit of salmon with potatoes and asparagus…fit for a king really…I poured myself a couple shots of scotch, grabbed a 6 pack, and out the door I went to play poker…

I’ve done this before without eating, no big deal.

But wait…let’s order pizza…meat lovers, xtra large…better get 2 of them…shiiiiiitttttt….

And the fun starts, I’m down 2 slices the scotch the beer, and then…and then…

Troy shows up with a bag of left over trick or treats, and more beer…I felt like a prom date…just have one…just a bit…

So here I am, fat…ish…er…

Today I’ll have to watch the consumption for sure…get it under control…

I did win moula though, left up $10!

A quiet night, Beagle announced that he is once again under 200 pounds…I’m thinking naked after a 2 hour sauna…

I don’t think I’ll catch him under 200, I have been there in my 30’s…moments before they hit me with the IV antibiotics…Kevin Parker, man blog

Just so we don’t lose touch with Parker…I told you the other day that he is maxing out…well here is solid proof….

Those aren’t the cheap tires on that bike….

The Quote of the Day:

The most important thing is to have a good relationship with the bike… you have to understand what she wants. I think of a motorcycle as a woman, and I know that sounds silly, but it’s true.
Valentino Rossi

I’m not sure how Parker’s wife does it….

Sorry Parker…

Wait…a plug…want the best, cheapest insurance possible?  Contact Kevin Parker at http://lifeinsuranceottawa.ca/

It’s worth a look, even if it is just to see a skinny picture of him…but honestly…he can save you money.

Cold…snow…ice…what?

Day…where are we? Day getting thinner…

This morning I weighed in at 220.8 pounds.  Geezus…I’m almost in the thin zone…

Beagle and I had a turning lane conversation yesterday on our way to drop off the kids at school…it strikes him that we are getting close to being the same weight…

Yep…Beagle and I may some day weigh the same, which is fine…ahhhh…but I’m a foot taller…

fat party the man blog

Beagle isn’t as happy about it as the above photo might suggest…

You know I’m not sure I see myself any thinner…a problem I’ve experienced in the past, but I can tell you the last 5 k I ran I felt lighter…I’d go for another but…you know…snow…cold…

Parker, sadly, seems monstrous to me now, sorry Parker…but you do seem a bit…buoyant…

Poker tonight…poker Wednesday…I will try to go easy on the food…har har har…best intentions…

6 beers are a given, maybe a scotch or 2…we shall see.  I really do want to see 219 this week…where will it end????

I’d like to get myself down under 210…205…maybe, then even skinny fat Paul will have to give up the pointing and laughing.

Paul Robson, fat, man blog

A picture of fat Paul perhaps…to be fair…I had to go back…way back, deep into his facebook to find a picture of fat Paul.  And there were fatter ones but I couldn’t find them….whatever…

He is down now, 209 I think…I’m only 10 pounds away skinny Paul…then I hit the weights again…I lean mean 45 year old Victor to mirror the 35 year old one that used to exist?  maybe…just maybe…

Fat…oh fat…stay off me.

Just so we know I’m not starving myself here…I had a pint of juice yesterday, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, broccoli, spinach, kale, carrots, beats…all through the juicer…2 hamburgers, yep 2, some bits and bites…some cheese…

I am on a diet after all…

zero exercise yesterday, it just did not happen, next week though the wife has me queued for some p90!

I loath the p90….

The quote of the day:

Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far.
Thomas Jefferson

This is a man that hasn’t had 15 egg rolls on a poker night washed down with a dozen beers…You’d have to walk to Mexico to burn those calories…

Cold…snow…wind…wtf are we doing here?

Cheers…

Day 5.17 Fatty isn’t that Fat

Download PDF

I’m down 10 pounds, I hit the silver beast at 223.6 pounds this morning…

I’ve been in the low end of the 220’s for about 2 weeks now and this week I intend on seeing 219 on the scale.

How is this possible after 3 years of dieting?  I simply eat less…

That’s it…

I mean I ran a single 5 kilometres last week and did one workout…

I’ve eaten reasonably well…it has slowly gotten a bit worse, a few timbits will find there way in here and there…but I’m cutting those out shortly too…

My fearless foes aren’t as thin…I saw Parker out for a beer last week…now that I’m thinner I do feel that he could crush me…Beagle………track suits.  That’s all I can say about that.

The man blog is back…I will continue the trials and tribulations of a fat man…

Be warned, I’m officially just overweight now, I’m no longer considered obese….by North American standards anyway.

I’ve got plenty on my plate and it isn’t just salmon and asparagus.

This week I hope to hit the pavement a bit…in the snow…and continue to watch what I eat.  Poker Wednesday…maybe…and here at the Wheeler residence we keep on truckin…

A photo I suppose…I have to post something…

Victor Wheeler and Evelyn Wheeler

It isn’t as amusing as Beagle or Parker on a water slide…but it is the photo of the day…which leaves us with…

The Quote of the Day:

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
Buddha

Well…that’s that.

The weather…we knew it would happen sooner or later…snow.  I love the stuff actually…

Cheerio
