Diet Journal

I know I cant commit to this everyday, but I do need to make progress towards doing this more often as it is a part fo the journal, and the stress eating I have been doing I am up 8lbs.

Why am I doing noon? I have done a bunch of the fab diets over the years and nothing really ever sticks. I lost the most of my weight on weight watchers, but as soon as I was off it all the weight came storming back. So why am I doing noom? I am attempting to correct the mental aspect of the dieting process. I have an unhealthy relationship with food and I can no longer let that define me.

So today I will keep it simple. Today I am just here to admit: I have an unhealthy relationship with food, and I need to do something about it.

that is all

Early Morning Workouts

I have devised a temporary plan to get a few more steps and only sacrifice 15 minutes of sleep. i am goign to wake up at 545, and immediatley leave the house, getting to the church where I carpool around 6am. I will then walk for 45 minutes until the time we meet to goto work, and get dressed once we arrive at work. on the days we dont carpool, I will go straight to work then walk near work for the 45 minutes! Sounds like a plan, lets see if I actually do it. Today, Check.

Forgive yourself for the blindness that put you in the path of those who betrayed you. Sometimes a good heart doesn't see the bad.

Birthday Boy

The excuses we make in order to justify the crappy thing we eat is amazing. Its my birthday. Its a party, Its the super bowl. its HER birthday. Its a potluck. Its Tuesday. rediculous.

I will never tackle this thing as long as I continue to make excuses for the shit way I eat.

I had cake for breakfast again.

One of the simplest ways to stay happy is letting go of the things that makes you sad.

Have a Brightline Day!

As I usually do, I read the cliff notes for this book on how to handle the psychological issues with food, and think I know anything. This book, The Brightline Diet, outlines some steps to follow to break your addiction to food, which I firmly believe I have. In a nutshell, I have to stop eating the things that "reward" my brain (sugar, flour) and stop snacking. As far as your mental health, it suggests a regimen of meditation and inspirational quotes.

We don't know what tomorrow will bring. So don't stay mad for too long. Learn to forgive and love with all your heart. Don't worry about the people who don't like you. Enjoy the ones who love you.

So far, since Friday I have lost 4 pounds. good start, need to work harder at working out. Part of the bright line thing is writing in a journal, so I will be trying to do that as much as possible.

Too Much Money on Food

Long story short here, I have spent 257 dollars this month already on food, and by food I mean eating out at lunch or out drinking with friends and co-workers.

That's Absurd.

no wonder im fat

and broke

time to nip this shit in the bud.

New Diet Plan: Day 1.

I have not been stepping on the scale, its been more disappointing then helpful as I will be good for a week and see nothing, so for now I am going to try this scaleless and continue to work on my will power.

Yesterday was good, kept my wits. today is another day.

I haven't found that edge

I'm still looking for something to effectively motivate me. Last January I made a pledge to loose weight and spent 12 months gaining it. this year I have done the same with the same result.

No declarations of no more.

Just hard work.

Are you yella?

Any fans of 80's movies out there? Specifically the back to the future franchise. There were these moments in the film where the protagonist would have a confrontation with the antagonist and it always ended the same way. Right when cooler heads were going to prevail and the protagonist was about to walk away, the antagonist would call him a chicken, leading to the protagonist to do something stupid.

I am having a somewhat similar situation...

For me, the antagonist is simply everyone else in the world (not that I see the world that way, just for the purposes of this simile), and I cannot stand being called "Big Guy"

I get it, you meant it as a compliment, I HATE IT.

Today I am turning that into motivation. The guy at Costco tonight called me big guy and I guess it stuck in my craw.  So im back at square one AGAIN.

the only difference is...

I'm mad...

and ready to do something about it.

Weight Loss Self Challenge

I've challenged myself to loos weight again, so far I'm not doing a great job.

I promised my wife I would be 190 by our anniversary next year... I do not know how much I weight currently so I am not sure how big of a task that will actually end up being.

Man oh man, just to make it through the holidays...

Micro Blog

So I've started a micro blog in hopes of gathering more accurate information about my eating patterns, to then in hopes understand why I feel hungry, the things I can do about it in the future. It is going pretty well so far I think, it has only been about a week. If there is a want for anyone to see these micro blogs maybe I will find a place for them on this site. In the mean time they remain private!

First Two 'Real' Frames

I seem to be struggling to drink my 100oz of water everyday. Need to get a fix on that. Otherwise I'm off to my usual uneasy start when I bowl. I did pretty well yesterday knocking down 9 pins! I've weened myself off the work free food closet pretty well, that for me was going to be the toughest pin to tackle. Not eating after 7 is also a hard one, I don't get home until 630 and have to rush to put something together.

Goal Today: Drink my 100oz of water and pick up this spare.


Friday, Oct 2 2015


I got a strike on my first warm up roll! It wasn't easy, not eating after seven is a lot harder than I remember it being when i was dieting hardcore. On to frame number two.

Trying to find a way to be able to keep score of the game online, right now I have a scorecard I printed out and put on my fridge, if your interested in playing, download your scorecard here!

My Ten Pins

I have created the ten pins for my Diet Bowling Challenge! 
  1. Do not enter the snack closet
  2. No Sodas
  3. No food after 7PM
  4. Track all my food with Weight Watchers
  5. Do my nighttime calisthenics OR goto gym during the day
  6. Eat breakfast, keep it under 10 points
  7. 100oz of water a day
  8. Only 2 cups of coffee
  9. Eat veggies with dinner
  10. Eat a snack that makes me happy
Going to spend a few days I think getting "Warmed up" before I play for real, and also work on the score card!

Finding That Motivation

I'm still having issues finding my motivation so I have been reading my old blogs trying to figure out what I did before to get past this, and I came across this blog and remembered my "GED" challenge. I am going to start this back up and I am going to find my weight anchors and put those back around my neck again. Get this thing moving.

Still having issues with my weight, I loose, I gain. So sick of the ebb and flow. I'm starting my count of "Good Eating Days" over again, and challenging myself to 7 straight days to start. What does a "good Eating Day" look like you ask?:
  • Tracking ALL food eaten
  • Not going over my allotted points
  • Not eating after 7pm
  • Eating breakfast
  • Careful snacking in the afternoon
  • The last one is key because I tend to snack a lot while I sit at my desk in the afternoon, vending machine food, terrible. I am going to stick to chewing gum, eating applesauce and drinking water to avoid the snacking.
Well I hope I can do this. I'm wearing my anchor (even got WW to replace them so they are newer looking), I feel super motivated, I need to get more exercise. I just hope I can keep this up and get this weight off. Need to be strict with myself like I was when I started that journey.

Finally stepped on the scale for the first time since I injured myself and it was not a good idea. I have gained another 10lbs and I am starting to loose my mind. 

Food is happiness for me, we all know that, but right now I am finding myself in dire need of this happiness. Being "disabled" has been rough for me, and with my wife in super stressed mode with her dissertation I have not been laying the bulk of my depression on her, and still trying to be a good husband and keep her mood up as best I can. At the end of the day the result is a decently happy wife (which is important), but leaving myself in shambles on the inside wanting to scream all day long. 

One of the few things that puts a smile on my face is food. Eating doesn't make the pain go away, but it does a great job of hiding it for a few moments. I've said this before, I never attacked my mental issue with food, just forced myself to work around it to loose weight. My usual workarounds, like exercise, are no longer an option. So what do I do? 

I've started writing on my arm again, hoping that will give me some sort of motivation. I've been tracking all my food in my tracker, hoping that helps keep me on track. I've stopped eating out for lunch, that has saved my diet and my wallet. If I can avoid the food closet here at work i think that will be another great step, but its hard, particularly in the afternoon, when my appetite is on high. I keep going back in there to grab something. FREE FOOD! Who passes that up. We even have catered lunch today, and it's Thai food, which I love. Oh man. going to be particularly hard to stay strong today.

Anyway, that's my rant for right now, just trying to figure out how I'm going to make it, or at least fake it till I can get my but back to the gym, or at least out for a walk.

Things always get in the way

Since I have returned from my trip to Europe, I have been wanting to get my act together and loose some of this weight that I have put on since our wedding. With my new job came a gym membership and also renewed my commitment to myself and to my wife that I was about to get things moving in the right direction. I started playing basketball on Tuesday and Thursday, spin class on Wednesday, and going for a jog on the weekend. I even laid out my daily eating schedule.

Exactly one week into my new found motivation, something has slowed me down. While playing basketball I managed to snap my Achilles tendon right in half. As I was falling to the floor, I knew it was going to be bad. I was rushed to the hospital and put into a cast. I have seen the Orthopedist and have my surgery scheduled for this coming Thursday. After which, will be about a 3 month recovery time.

I am trying to find the will power I need to not let this get me down. To try and at least continue to eat right even though I cannot exercise. I've started doing sit-ups, and it is pretty much the only exercise I can do. I also plan on going tot he gym and doing some upper body lifting, to make sure I keep my arms and chest in check as well. All is it I expect is going to be hard to WANT to do while all I really want to do is sit on the couch and watch TV.

So as usual, wish me luck as I try to keep my spirits up, and my diet in check.

Time for day one... again

So I was 198.4 after my honeymoon... I was 185 the week before my wedding in may. This is NOT COOL.

So its back to day one again, and without any impending trips or nuptials, I will have to dig deep to find the motivation to get this weight back off. The ability to get a workout in at lunch at my new job is going to be key on this leg of the journey so wish me luck, and for anyone reading this I may be coming your way for that motivation.

Here we go...

What Will I Read Here?

Most of my blogging has to deal with weight loss, if you can tell from the tag cloud above. I didn't want to use my blog to just be like "oh, here is what I did over the weekend," my life isn't that interesting. Instead I began this blog in hopes of expressing a lot of the thoughts I have about my own life and life in general, as well as share a lot of the humerous things I see out on the net including chat conversations. This blog might seem random and all over the place but serves as a great deal of inspiration not only formyself, but it would seem for a few others. If you have come here I hope you are either inspired, or at least entertained. Enjoy!
