Day 6

I forgot to weigh myself this morning, but well, I was on my way Garden of the Gods. The dog and I hiked around a couple trails, but the phone went dead, so I was only able to measure one of them via endomondo.

I don't know if that link will work or not.

Also today is a blue moon which has an old definition and a new one.   The new one being that it is the second full moon of the month.  Which isn't very common.

But it is also a Harvest Moon, which happens to be the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox.

I can think of now idea what a harvest blue moon means, but I am fairly certain that, the Blue Moon Brewery people didn't take advantage of the Blue Moon Harvest Pumkin Ale.

day, i forget, either five unless five is different from yesterdays title plus 1

Lets see, what should i write about today, as it turns out blogging is a bit of a habit, when i first started a long long time ago in the bush presidency, the one where he bested Gore. I had a hard time knowing what to write, and then i just wrote and eventually, i had so many ideas on what to write, that I had to filter them.

I would like to point out that i didn't claim they were good ideas, just ideas, then i nearly quit blogging for a for about a year.  Which is silly, cause i really do i have fun doing it.

Anyway, this is I think day 5, and the scale read 155.8 which is slightly more than yesterday but only by a few ounces, or like 12.8 of them.  I am going to chalk that up as my underwear are made out of cotton today and yesterday i had on a nice pair of synthetic quick dry, under Armor which weigh less.

2 days to get down to my goal weight, funny thing, I don't even know what that is,  for most of the past decade i have been somewhere around 185.  i have dropped to 170 about 6 years ago, but I didn't get down to with in the ideal range on my bmi

The book I have says dudes should weight 110 for the first 5 feet then an extra 6 lbs per inch, That puts me at 158.  seems like an odd goal weight.  Should I make it 150 or go 160.  I say 160, that way, i only had 40 lbs to she and in just 5 short days i have lost 4 of them 10% there, heck dieting is easy i should be down 40 bills by the end of October :-D

In case you cats didn't know, that statement was written and followed with an eye roll, i am guessing we have similar expressions on our face.

day 4

Four days of diet, well lonly really 3 because it is six in the morning on the 4th.   It would be a little premature to call it a day already.  Although, I wish i could just call it a day and climb back in bed.

My wife and kid are in the greater DC area, cause she got transferred out there, and I am here, and i found out yesterday the job I though i had a great chance of getting, I didn't get.  It was like a giant blow to the stomach.  They only interviewed 3 or 4 people for it, and it was a while ago.  I was all hopeful since it was taking so long.  Anyway, now it is going to be a while before I get to go to DC.
That makes me sad :(

but unbelivibly I didn't use that to not follow the don't eat processed crap I've been trying to do.

This morning the scale said 195 even.

day 3

So last night, I get invite to a baseball game, cubs Rockies, and yes if you happened to be watching from home sometimes you could see me in the background, in the crowd shots, i only say that because i am sure there are people out that, were watching the game and where struck with the thought, is that striking fellow in the back ground that guy, what was his name, snap snap snap of the fingers, i just can't remember. Yes it was me.

2 days into the 17 day diet, and i had a minor foul up at the baseball game, but i think it will be okay if i just sort pretend that didn't happen and stay on track otherwise.

Lets see I have to go weigh myself,  hold your breath I'll be right back

197.2 the scale unforgivingly moaned.  Which is still less then 2 days ago, so yea, hooray, we had another fantastic day

day 2

So this diet isn't as easy at it seems, i spent most of yesterday longing to wrap my jaws around some kind of mass produced confectionery delight.

Yet I resisted, and although it is all just water weight,  this morning the scale called out 197.2.  Which for those of you who happen to be keeping score at home is less than yesterday.

Getting in shape

Someback ground information, We're moving to DC from Denver, which is entirely too far, and I was opposed to the move.  I love living in Denver, but I love my family more.  My wife and daughter have already made the move, and while I am hunting for a job I do not have one yet.  It is a slow slow process.

Anyway,  While I am here with my Bernese Mountain Dog and they are there, I am having a great deal of difficulty concentrating, making good decisions and stuff like that.  I have eaten my way to the highest I have ever spun the dial on the stupid scale,  I am going to weight my self in a little bit to know where I start this at.

Yesterday some friends whom, I'll miss, cause they're not the type of friend you keep in touch with but they're good friend to know,  I hate when you make that realization too.  Anyway  They took me to lunch at Maggiano's

She has always been a thin gal at least since we lived near her, but he was a bigger guy anyway not huge just bigger, he has dropped 30 lbs a day on "The 17 day diet" since April, I think he said,  which is good, so i read the first bit of the book and this seems entirely like a diet I can do for a couple reasons.

  • It really is a diet plan you can live on, not just a crash diet to get you to shed lbs for a while then you bail on it and balloon back up
  • It is 17 day cycles, so who can't do 17 days, to try it?
  • It doesn't require like exercise programs aimed at getting people ready to compete in the Olympics.
  • It is mostly common sense stuff, drink water, eat fruits and vegitables, lean protiens, don't get our lunch passed to you through a drive up window.
The title seems a bit commercial, and his advice about working out 17 minutes, i think that is really just to tie it to his book, I can committ to that thought, so I am about to try it, I will let you know how it goes.

The first day weight in is 199.8, which is good at least I am on the right side of 200, if only by a good bm.

Also to start with here a couple pics of me in the bathroom, well not using the bathroom for its named purpose rather using the bathroom for a mirror, I am a tubby lubber.

okay, i can't do the picture, but i'll figure it out later.
