Basically I've decided that if I'm down to 145 by Sunday then for lunch Sunday my wife and I are going to this Italian Restuarant. She's doing BODY FOR LIFE and she's doing great and Sunday is her cheat day so I'll come along and cheat too. IF I meet that goal.


Breakfast - shake (strawberries, fat free milk, supplement powder, egg scramblers) , peanut butter, english muffin, crackers with cottage cheese

almonds and cheese

LUNCH - chicken breast, brown rice, veggies...

I am so crazy that it has taken me this long to uncover a habit that is completely destructive for me! Last night I decided to make myself a healthy sweet treat by mixing cottage cheese with SugarFree, FatFree chocolate pudding mix. Well, it WAS good but I ended up eating three servings, even though I wasn't hungry anymore. The rest of dinner was crab and salad greens, steamed broccoli and whole wheat pasta with salsa and mushrooms. Well as if that wasn't bad enough, it set of something and I fo...

So it's Sunday morning and the official end of my first week of re-commitment to GETTING ABS. And, well. I'm the same. 147.5 pounds and 14.5% body fat. The same percentage that I once read our president has. So I did just enough to maintain the STATUS QUO. With that in mind, what do I do about today? I was going to give myself free rein to eat whatever I wanted. But now ---
So I am compromising. I had lots of cereal this morning and rice crackers but I am going to eat my normal hea...

Okay. So I am at lunch. I take my lunch every day from 2pm - 3pm right after my boss gets back from his lunch break. Well, today after I eat I have some things to get done so I call the library to re-check some books and then change the lightbulb in the spare room so that ---oh wait, wait a minute, it's not lighting up --- what the heck, I KNOW this is a brand new bulb. Oh, what's this? The LIGHT SWITCH seems to be completely screwed up. Probably from the EARTHQUAKE we had yesterday. So I call ...

So I checked my JoeUser blog today to find that I had a comment from The Brad about an earlier article I wrote.

Now, in this article I insinuated that basically right wing people tend to be not so attractive. But I have to admit Bush II is kind of a handsome fellow.

Anyway, I don't feel entirely great about the article because it's kind of petty and immature and mean. But I think I've pretty much established that these are all parts of my personality. So I published the article.

But now...

OK. I'm thrilled. I am back to 149lbs and 15 percent body fat. I think I have finally gotten a good routine and diet going on. I'm excited because I was floundering there for a bit.

I was looking over my journal at the last time I lost weight. I lost 14 pounds but if you do the percentage calculations only half of it was fat. I want to see if I can make MORE of it fat and less... everything else. I mean I'm not a big guy what muscle I do have I need not to lose it.

What I've been doing is ...

So my friends, I am trying to lose about 18 pounds. But that's just an estimate. Because it's really more about the body fat percentage for me, as dictated by my TANITA SCALE, which acurrate or no, will at least show what direction you are heading in. I am TRYING to do this through means of eating healthy. The diet is 5 days of low carb, low fat, one day of moderate carb low fat and one pure cheat day a week.
calories on 5 days a week are 2000.
calories on moderate carb day are about 2300

Saw a short news story on TV about how some people and some lawmakers are looking into having obesity classified as a disease and therefore people could perhaps use tax money to pay for their "treatment".

This interested me, since I myself am trying to lose about 15, 20 pounds and I am not putting the responsibility on anyone but ME.

That, I think, is the buzzword here folks. RESPONSIBILITY.

Whose fault is it that you are fat? And we know that 2 out of three Americans are overweight. Th...

Hmmm. It was an interesting little party they had for us at the Club.

Fashion statements were interesting. Saw a black cowboy, some guy dressed like a Highlander complete with floor length black duster coat (in the end there can be only one you know), a very loud "poker night" type shirt, a guy in leather pants and a tight T-shirt (i'm not even going to go there), a dude in a suit that was about three sizes too big the coat hung down past his knees, and a few guys sporting baseball caps, one ...

I sometimes take it for granted that everyone knows all the little healthy tips and tricks that can help weight loss, weight maintenance and a healthy lifestyle. So they are worth a quick review here, I think:

*Switch From Regular Soda To Diet Soda

*Drink More Water!

The idea here is to set little goals, one at a time, at a pace you are comfortable with! You only get one body in this life my friend! Be good to it!

*Find "substitute foods" you enjoy. I used to love to sit down to a...

ahhh the interesting life of a retail salesclerk. Had a lady today looking to buy shirts for her husband. "How bit a difference is it between 32 inch sleeve and 34?" "well, about two inches ma'am." "hmmm... he's about your size, i'm thinking maybe you could try one on and I could see..." "I wear a 32 sleeve" (no way was I going to cross THIS line. I mean customer service is one thing, asking me to TRY ON stuff? weird.)

But speaking of retail service, why does my boss just stand there if ...

So I'm sitting here at lunch and I decided to do a sort of "journal" type article.

My friend from work decided to give me a giant box of tangerines for Christmas. I swear, there is like 50 of them in there. They are delicious but I am eating tangerines every morning. One tangerines a morning, I should say. I am never going to eat all these. Hmmm, wonder if my cats will eat them?

Have you seen the Fred Durst video, I believe it is a cover---and he is kissing all over Halle Berry? Oh my go...

So if I could travel back in time to 1994, what would I change?

#1. I would have developed better study habits.

#2. I would have realized sooner that school is a huge waste of time and so were 90% of the people there.

#3. I would have saved more of the money I was making when I had no real bills.

#4. I would have stopped cultivating such a geeky image sooner. Let me add to this for anyone still in high school : stupid little things like your haircut, your clothes, and whether or ...
