Yes, Earl, you did. And you are going to own up to it. And you are now going to stop talking in first person. Yesterday was the first time in almost nine full weeks that I ate horribly. It just was a "bad" day overall when it came to food. I needed to eat early … Continue reading Week 9 – Day 5: Oops
I do enjoy donuts quite a bit. Dunford donuts are hard to beat. I know people who think that things like Krispy Kreme are the bomb (hi dad) but nothing beats a good heavy, cake-like donuts. My boss brought in donuts on Wednesday and I was glad that I had already had my oatmeal or … Continue reading Week 9 – Day 4: I Turned Down Donuts
I lasted about four months. That is all that I could do. And it is a little sad. That's right, folks. For anyone who remembers, I had said that I was going to grow my hair out to donate it to Wigs for Kids like my wife had been doing. But I just can't. I … Continue reading Week 9 – Day 3: I’m Sorry, Doug
It certainly didn't take me long to realize that doing upper-body lifts wasn't going to be happening anytime soon. I thought I would start very light and just do a few exercises to get into it and see if I could. It took a single rep of about 90 pounds on the bench press to … Continue reading Week 9 – Day 2: Well, I Tried
So there were a few good things that happened today. First of all, my feet still feel so much better thanks to the little inserts I am wearing on my feet. There is still a little pain in my heel, but it is almost nothing compared to before. The second thing is that it was … Continue reading Week 9 – Day 1: 280.6
Here's the recap for week 8 of my Project 7x52! Exercise: A I exercised for all 7 days last week although I didn't do as much running because of my foot pain. I am going to try to get back into lifting a little bit this coming week and hopefully can move on from there. … Continue reading Project 7×52: Week 8 Recap
I have a buddy who has been doing a chili cooking contest for a while in the tiny town of Carlin, Nevada. Last year a few of us went with him and helped him cook it and had a pretty fun time and took 2nd place. This year, I wanted to be a bit more … Continue reading Week 8 – Day 7: Chili Baby!
My wife and I alternate who decides what to do for our dates every weekend. When it comes to the non-eating part of the date, we pretty much stick to movies because we have a pass with AMC and there's no reason to spend extra money doing something else unless there's something coming along that … Continue reading Week 8 – Day 6: Brazilian
Diet Dr. Pepper. It seriously is some of the best tasting chemicals on the planet. I used to be a Diet Pepsi fan, drank it as a teenager and adult (with some Mountain Dew mixed in here and there) until they changed the recipe from aspartame to sucralose. From that point on, I only drank … Continue reading Week 8 – Day 5: DDP
I swear I can't catch a break. Ask my wife, I am the most positive person on the planet (the joke is the fact that I am the most pragmatic person alive) but this is really getting discouraging. On top of every other little issue I have been having, today I tried to do some … Continue reading Week 8 – Day 4: Seriously!?
