I typically don’t put pictures of myself on the internet. However, I was pretty proud with how well my Solomon Grundy costume turned out. The make-up was done by my dear friend, Rachael, but the rest was all me (and Value Village, one Halloween store, and a big kitchen knife).

Four Weeks

It’s been four weeks since I last had a soda. Now I just need to clean up the solids portion of my diet… and get back to exercising. I don’t know how y’all do it sometimes. It’s getting cold up here, and when it’s cold, all I want to do is sleep. I must be part bear or something. 

As a fat man, I’ve gotta say…

I’ve grown to hate metal chairs with arms on them. They dig into my thighs and make me want to Hulk out and smash everything!

Booya!

Wore three pairs of socks, went threeish miles (even jogged 8 blocks (in two block intervals)), and I have no new blisters! My feet still hurt, but it’s the pain of my big ass stomping around for threeish miles rather than a friction burn. I’m calling this a victory and celebrating with a steak and salad!

Eureka!!!

I’ve discovered if I wear two pairs of socks I can walk for two miles before my feet start to hurt! I wonder what would happen if I wore five pairs!

One Day…

I’ll be able to walk for more than a mile without getting blisters on my feet. Until that wonderful day, it’s blisters-ho for me!

Every time one of you writes “promo”, I see “porno”, and then I’m a little let down.

To all of my friends who currently have, or have had “thunder thighs”…

I need your advice. Is there something you can do to prevent your thighs from mashing together while walking/running? After about a mile, my thighs feel like they’re in a DBZ beam battle and it hurts like a dirty fucking word!

Any help would be appreciated.

Things to work on…

I have four things I really need to work on if I am to stay on track this time. I need to build stamina, build strength, lay off the damn fast food, and wean myself off of soda.

I know from previous failures that I can’t rush any of these things. 

For the stamina and strength, I am taking walks in the evening and doing body weight exercises. Fighting my slothful nature is definitely a work in progress.

The craving for horrible food and soda is ridiculous! Of course sometimes it’s the convenience of fast food that’s really appealing. Who really wants to do prep work and then stand over a hot stove in the middle of the summer?

I’m getting better about it though. :)
