Half way there

So, I am half way to my goal. I am 5’10” and was pushing 231 lbs! I am around 211 – 212. Weekends are tough. The only time I have to exercise is in the morning. I lift weights for 20 minurtes and run for 30 minutes. It just does not seem to be enough. Dieting is difficult; I am trying everything , but weekends are hard! I like beer!



play the drums again
Well, it happened...

I was invited to play the role of one of the Beatles in a skit for a business association that I am involved with. Two of the guys were playing guitar and the other two were to pretend to play instruments. I volunteered that I could play the drums and I would gladly be “Ringo”. The next thing you know, my drums are retrieved from the cobwebs, dusted off, new heads, and the wife allows a $275.00 purchase for new high hats! It’s a 5 minute gig that could lead to the end of a long retirement from music in my life.

Food and Friends on Day 13

It can be really difficult to stick with a diet when you dine with the same people at lunch every day. . . I had the audacity or maybe something quite the oposite, when I ordered a seafood salad on a bed of lettuce. So outraged was my dining companion that he emailed Maxim Magazine and is lobbying for a “Man Rule” that no man can order anything on a bed of lettuce. I’m trying to avoid carbs damnit and it is working quite well! I have lost about six or seven pounds already, Just 34lbs left.

I have not been exercising I really need to do that to speed up the weight loss. Cheers.
