A pound a day…let’s hope.

I managed to lose 1 pound yesterday.

Day One of the sugar detox: 242 pounds  -1

I had expected better but maybe I won’t see a 2 or 3 pound loss until my body hits ketosis…the state where my body starts burning fat for carbohydrates…

I ate plenty yesterday, almost all meat.  Bacon and 3 eggs for breakfast, meat sticks throughout the day, I likely had 8 of them at 200 calories a piece, a bag of beef jerky and a bowl of coconut curry meatball soup…I made a pot of this up before noon…good stuff.  Oh…I managed a cup or 2 of raw veg too, carrots, broc, cauliflower…the usual.

I attempt the same today.

No bon bons, no booze.  It won’t be easy with a plate full of muffins from Treats staring me down on the counter.

the msn blog, man weight

Visually stunning….

Am I in the group of the fattest guys I know???

Maybe…looking around we are all about the same level of…well…out of shape.

Now some of us are in this condition in our 20’s.

This does not bode well for the future gentlemen.

You’d think hunting face squirrels would lean you out a bit…buggers must be hard to catch.

I had a big day yesterday…I drove the Cobra.  The last part I needed to patch up the transmission arrived, installed, and the monster started right up after 8 months of sitting in the garage.  I wish I hadn’t started the body work now as I would just drive it as is…anyway, still a beauty.

I had the misfortune of watching Pompeii…Now I usually look up reviews on IMDB, check a films rating before watching it, but you know what…that’s ruined now.  IMDB gave this donkey show a 6.3???

I had to fast forward through the last 20 minutes of the movie…I actually gave up with 5 minutes left…I don’t know if the main character and his lady friend made it to safety or not…

I like to imagine they didn’t…which is why I decided just to turn the movie off…sweeter dreams…

hair cut.  the man blog

job done.

A trip out to Capital Dodge on the weekend.  I was surprised to see a few things…squirrels shirt topped this list…

I did notice that Scott had gotten a little off the top…a trim.  He hasn’t lost an ounce though.  There are salesman walking all over the lot while he putts around in a golf cart.

If I was staring down at a pants tag that read something like 44-32 I might want to go for a stroll around the lot now and again.

Just saying….

The guitar was going swimmingly but I may have closed the patio door on my finger last night…hard to type and I bet impossible to play.

I think I was punishing myself for sitting through that movie…

Well John…it was 22 degrees yesterday and today we expect to see snow…

Go fak yourself…

Try to stay warm, murder is not an option neither is suicide…the sun will be out again soon enough.



Houston, we have a problem

Okay. Yesterday I did not eat breakfast, for Fanch (the new brunch) I had a sausage on a protein pita.

For dinner I had mens health chili….then I went to poker.

We started early, 5 pm, the earliest start we’ve ever attempted.  Beagle asked for a snow day, which in poker talk means he wants to get out of control, drinking, cranking it up.  The bugger also won over $1000.  I was lucky enough to go home up, not 1000 though.  The game ended at 4 am, 11 hours of cards beers and partying.

How many beer do you think a 240 something pound guy can drink on a snow day in 11 hours?

17…I know, doesn’t seem like much…plus a shot off Jager.

During that 11 hours I also consumed some chicken wings, beef jerky and meat sticks.

The result at 9:30 am?  Did beer and late night meat put me up?  Don’t forget I did go to the gym today and put in a half decent leg and shoulder workout…I worked up a hell of a sweat.

Anyone for bets?  Parker?

money money money money

money money money money

Is it possible to consume 40 pounds of beer and lose weight?

It seems that beer is NOT the problem.  Today I weigh in at 240.4

some of that is water lost from around my brain, I can feel that, but some of it has got to be old fashioned fat.

Today I will not go to the gym.  I will consume gatorade and try not to eat junk food.

Quote of the day:

It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.
