Well It’s been a week to say the least. Happy Friday everyone. When we last left off last Thursday my weight was 304.8. – Today it’s 302 Flat so that’s almost 3 pounds and once again I have no complaints after the last few days and the roller coaster that I was on I had actually worried myself.
Friday we played at Havana and I was so busy with brides and clients that I didn’t really drink. I had sweet potato mashed potato there for dinner which is my favorite. Saturday we were supposed to play in Cape May so I we headed to the shore early in the morning to get cable boxes and the shore set up. We hit Mack’s Pizza for a pie in the rain. Settled in to watch the Flyers game and then got a phone call that we were cancelled due to high winds and rain. My agent has invited us to his wife’s 50th birthday that day and asked that we come home to attend now that the show was cancelled and that we did.
That’s when my weekend spiraled. Top shelf open bar. Friends munchie, cocktail hour and filet and the fixings for dinner. Yeah. The night quickly ran away from me and we ended up at Parx Casino with a big group of people and then Sunday wasn’t much better. Amber was away for a few days for work so Brandon and I really didn’t go that healthy although I did get my workouts in. And really started to get back in a gym groove. And by Wednesday had pulled myself back together and the run away train was under control. That quickly I was off and then back on. I thought I had done a lot of damage but Wednesday’s weigh in was 306 and change so I really reeled it back in for a win this week in the end. I would love to be at 300 or a little less by the next blog. It’s time to really hold myself accountable and make this happen. 290 by Memorial Day. It’s doable and I want to get there.
And then I got lost for a little…. and holy shit… 20 days have passed since I started this and weighing in at 310. I thought I’d be angry.. I thought I would be in a panic and guess what… I am not. I am okay. I am still working out. My body is still changing. I was sick for a week. I’ve been sore as hell for a week. I am okay.
Have everything that I should be doing? Absolutely not. Have I eaten more cookies and tasty cakes than one man probably should and a month? Absolutely. But I am okay.
I did want to write to you today to let you know that I am okay and I am here. I have not given up. If you follow me on Instagram you will see that. I am still here.
I had a therapy session with Shane Bonham at Valor Tattoo last week on Wednesday Night. I got an awesome boombox added to my music sleeve and we finally tackled the elbow and it sucked but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to suck. And I had a small space in my under arm/back arm area and I told Shane I’d like something purple rain. So he whipped up this kick ass little umbrella with a Prince Symbol and it rocked. And very quickly and within a few hours my tribute tattoo, became a memorial tattoo as Prince was found dead the next day.
If anyone has touched my life musically, It has been Prince.
Saturday Night the band did this on the fly. It was hard for me not to break down.
So I won’t keep you too long here. I have so much to say and just can’t pull it together. I will try for next week I promise.
Thank you for reading and for being here.
