November 4th (Day 19)

Posted: November 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

I woke up feeling like poopie today. I did not go to the gym. I went to work. I started feeling better around 11am, I really think it was punishment for breaking yesterday. So to make up for my indiscretions yesterday, I went to the extreme the other way today:

I think that’s called the Castaway diet.

Anyway, I think that should balance out overdoing it yesterday. I went to find my weight on the trusty scale today, and it broke when I stepped on the it.

No joke. It’s all out of whack and I can’t get it to work, so I guess I should just give up and not worry about losing weight. I mean, it’s gotta be a sign.

I’m going to borrow a scale from my parents’ tomorrow and see where I’m at. I’m hoping for around 264. Here’s the crazy thing. I stepped on the scale when I originally weighed in, and it said 272. 30 pounds lost would be 242. Perfect. The next day, I moved the scale and stepped on it again, and it said 274.  It turns out I can weigh different amounts if the scale is placed different places on the floor at my house of lies.

So instead of making the excuse that I really should only have to get to 244, I’m just going to lose the extra 2 pounds and be done with it. So it’s still 242 or the KKK gets a grand.

264 tomorrow would leave me about 31 days to lose 22 pounds, which I think is still very doable.

I’m probably delusional. This is FUN!

Ok so back to today:

First, Millie has decided that she misses me a lot when I’m out of the truck actually measuring a house. I know this because when I get back into the truck, this happens:

She wants to sit on my lap and hang out instead of the passenger seat where I keep 4,000 toys for her to chew on. Anyway…

That is my friend Val’s house. I was driving down her street on my way out from an estimate and I saw that her garage gutter was pretty damn full of leaves. So I cleaned it out for her. I even got rid of most of the shingle grit! If you have dyslexia, you might say it was gringle shit, and that would be funny.

Twitter joke! (this actually happened)

That’s the struggle of a man who is not sexing it up in any way. HASHTAGTRUTH!

After work today I sat on my bed knowing that I wanted to take a nap, so I went to the gym and hit my 3,000 instead:

    You’re awesome. And not this this is a great long-term solution, or that your body would respond like mine… but I really don’t want the KKK to have 1000 bucks so an “easy” way to lose lbs quick is either South beach or Atkins diet. I did the calorie counting and exercise thing for almost 2 yrs and finally lost the extra weight through South Beach last winter. In like a month. Good luck 🙂

    Just throwing this out there to help you buddy. Skipping/eating less doesn’t help yoy with weight loss.

    • That is exactly how you lose weight. If you eat more than your basal metabolic rate in kcals, you will gain weight. If you eat less, you will lose weight. Granted, things can go haywire during prolonged calorie deficits, but this is generally true. Here is an interesting write-up for a morbidly obese man that fasted for over a year.

      I am not recommending it, but to a certain point, all dieting is an energy equation of calories in vs. calories expended.

You're here...might as well say something...
