The Weekender | Lufthansa

August 1st, 2018

All Lufthansa staff across the world could select from a short list of things since the company wanted to recognize the Five Star Rating it received from Skytrax.  I picked the “The Weekender” since I didn’t have a bag like this.  This weekend they are throwing a 15 Year Celebration party at the Airport for staff on Saturday.

So now… I have a bag for the weekend.  So let’s get away!

Enough is Enough | Shed Pounds

July 31st, 2018

 

my previous post can be found here where I wanted to start a new year off the right way.

THEN I DID’NT DO SHIT!

I can remember a year ago being around 247 pounds and going into the winter it was creeping up and I went into the 250’s and into the 260’s

 

The reason was nutrition and food intake alone.  I was some-what active but it was not eating enough calories and eating the wrong types at the wrong times.  I’m a very happy person and very positive but looking back I’ve noticed I’m down in the dumps and not living the life I want to live.  I got a tattoo with the word “enough” to try and make me focus.

it was hard.  i went the other direction.

I signed up for a Gym membership at Fit-4-Less and I’ve even downloaded the “Lose It” app on my phone to track food intake and my smartwatch tracks other stuff with my body.  6 months ago you can see me tracking my food above.  Honestly… I fell off that bandwagon that I started at the beginning of this year.  Maybe lasted 7 weeks.

5 months ago I was 279… making a 20 pound gain in the last 6 months.  I stopped tracking.  WTF!

Since then… I have gone to the gym but not enough.  Plus what you put into your “pie hole” is what’s important and will make it count.

In May… I went to play basketball and you just get such a wake up call.  I kicked some ass on the court… but I could be so much better.  I wanted to play half court and not full court.  I could not run.

So now… back to the gym.  tracking food.  tracking progress.  my roomie is doing the same so that is helpful too.

 

So here i will start again and to save you from the “before” photo it will post my measurements.  I weigh myself at every gym visit and will post the result into my phone.  I will share them here to be accountable.

Date: August 2nd, 2018

Weight: 302 lbs / Height: 6’1″ / Age: 47 i think 😉

Bicepts: 14.25 inches

Breast: 48 inches

Mid Belly: 51 inches

Waist: 46.5 inches

Thighs: 24 inches

Calf: 17.25 inches

Honest food tracking and the gym routine.  my little yoga app and my Nike Training Club app.  I have gym buddies and the desire to be attractive to “my mind” so I can feel confident to be with someone and be attractive to them.  I have crushes on people.  The world should not be one sided.

Today is day zero.

Weight goal is 232 pounds and be a little swell in the arms and shoulders.  It’s all in my belly and that mutha fucker has got to go!

 

TODAY IS DAY ZERO.

Italy | Bucketlist

July 25th, 2018

Italy.

The Coast.

This is on my bucket-list for a while.  I connected with Jude from High School and floated out the idea that if we are single we need to go to Italy in 2019 which seems like 3 months from now.  She sent me a photo of her savings jar!  I don’t think it will happen in 2019 and I don’t think she will be single since she is a great woman.  I do call her LMI… which stands for Little Miss Italy and it was nice to connect and catch up after so many years after High School.

This post is not about her… but just the wonderful little section of Italy along the coast that I want to explore.

I will get there tho…

(i don’t think we said 2019… since that feels like months away… so let’s just say both single in 2022)

I can go there with myself or a Little Miss “Someone”

Failed Trip To Europe With The Kids

July 1st, 2018

Planned a trip with the kids to Europe in the summer of 2015 and she fucks that up at the last minute.

2016 same thing.  plan a trip and she is too scared to have them go that far and we end up getting permission to take them to Nova Scotia.  (fuck tho)

2017 I plan time and my daughter starts working with the Town of Ajax so I split my vacation to take my son to Europe and then take my daughter separately and she has stupid excuses asking if there is hospitals in Portugal.  I have things booked… flights, Airbnb’s and even a stay at a cool waterpark.

just silence.

 

so she comes back with they can’t go alone and they need to go together… so i change my vacation for October and get the approval from her that they can be pulled out of school and we can go to europe in October 2017.

I loose some deposits and she has no idea what a piece of work she looks like.

 

So October comes and I get the no from her.  kids are mad and they know she always does this.  I end up going to Nova Scotia alone to visit with my Dad.

Fast forward to 2018 and when the year turns I send her my vacation weeks so she can block them off or put them into her “Mom Planner” thing she uses.  Kids are getting excited and on one had they know that she might do this again.

What do you know…  she does it again.  I think of a plan B trip since she has the passports and I can’t even take them to the States.  I book a week at Silent Lake and I then get they can’t since of her fucking wedding and his kids from the UK are over and she has stuff planned with them everyday.
