Is it Friday….yep, we all made it again…and hot dog and toboggan day with the bigger 2 off due to exams…you know what that means!  2 less lunches and the 2 I had to make….no sandwiches!

Hey…the little gifts a parent is happy to see.

What did I weigh in at this morning…239.8 pounds…under 240!  And down 5 pounds since Monday…low carb!!!

Do I enjoy going low carb…no sir…but I did up my carbs yesterday a bit, a high protein salad added about 24 grams although I think it only net 6, plus 1 and a half quest bars….another 8….2 whole eggs….3….lets throw another 10 in to be fair.

Less than 30 grams of carbs all in….no beer folks, no scotch either….I haven’t had a sip since Sunday…this evening the boys are getting together after work….at least one scotch….I deserve that!

Or not…depending on who you ask….lol

Anyway, I think I might be able to get pretty close to 230 if I can keep this up for the next 18 days….I mean half a pound a day…I spent an hour on the treadmill yesterday!  Have you seen what 240 pounds looks like on a treadmill….not pretty!  The sweat….my god…..

Good old Kevin Parker joined me on the treadmill after he pushed a bit of weight yesterday, he told me he felt strong after a few days rest…

Parker weighed in yesterday at 254 pounds….he is working hard though…harder than he ever has I think.

Beagle

Groundhog day for Beagle, his metabolism is reeling from diet red bull I presume…

man blog, groundhog days

Pirouz, Arthur, Ayhan and Vinnie

Arthur is away at a hotel somewhere…no weigh in…but he is doing the hotel gym every day.  Vinnie is eating pasta, Pirouz is down 2 pounds…off the rice…and Ayhan is way down at 187.6

Ayhan say “but Turkish dinner on Saturday, Layla Turkey soon.”  okay….if you say so.

Old Dusty Andy Trafford

Andy is also having a groundhog day…I think once you’re down to bone….it gets tough to drop even on the shakes…My advice Andy…get your skinny old butt over to the Carlingwood and walk some laps!

The Quote of The Day

So, What if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things.  One at a time.  Just let your pile of good things grow.

Rainbow Rowell

I mean with a name like that…it’s hard not to.

But honestly kids….why not….seek the good things….its as simple as putting a smile on a cashier’s face….

How easy?  The next time the cashier asks how you’re doing….say fabulous….watch in amazement….

I’m going out for a beer this evening for a good round of man hugs from the boys….good times!!!!

Babe…another wonderful night here, and many more to come…..I love your face….missing you always.

And I fuking wrack….
