So let the game start, you better run you little wild heart
You can run through all the nights and all the days
But just across the county line, a stranger passing through put up a sign
That counts the men fallen away to the price you pay, and girl before the end of the day,
I’m gonna tear it down and throw it away – Springsteen – The Price You Pay
Well I guess I should just put it put it out there and the burn took place this past week and I got myself under 300lbs. I hit 297 on Tuesday and by Wednesday it jumped back up to 299.1 where it was today as well. So that’s 6 pounds down from last Friday. So what I have I done? Hmmm. I’ve worked out. I’ve gotten my protein down. I’ve gotten my water down. Taken my supplements consistently. I’ve tried to keep my fiber high. Things finally took off a little. I hve tweaked my macros a little for the week. I have been eating more carbs then protein, I am flipping it for a week and see what that does with a little more protein then carbs. Nothing drastic. I am still roughly at 2400 calories. I am not starving. The upped protein will force me to eat a little more food as well. I am happy. I am getting my workouts in. I am on my way to kicking Operation 30′s ass. 14 pounds to go!
I can’t believe that I am going to be 45 in a few weeks. HOLY CRAP!!! Where the hell has my life gone? I am not ready to die. And I bring that up with so many of my hero’s have died all in their late 60’s. That’s 20 years from now. I am not ready to go anywhere. I need to have a mid-life crisis first. I have to get to drive my dream car. I need a better bucket list. I need to travel.
I went on a job interview yesterday and really like the company. I really liked the people I interviewed with as well. And now I sit and wait for the HR person to write to me and I’ve been checking my email like a mental patient. I was confident. I did realize that as much as I am okay with telling you my story….. I have a really hard time talking about myself in a job interview. And I leave and I want to punch myself. Why didn’t you say this? FUCK! But hopefully I’ll hear something soon. If I get this particular job it will definitely bring big changes to lots of people around me. Grab your shoe laces everyone because it’s coming! Change is good right?
I am looking at trainers. I really want to learn more about working out and more about my body. I have so many of them around me but I think changing things up is good. Trainers like many professionals have different ways of doing things and I think that it’s good to mix things up a bunch. As much as I want to pull the trigger I am waiting to see how this job shakes out. I will really be moving things around if that happens and will need a game plan to keep things on track for sure. Working 8-5 an hour away will cut my fun time down A LOT! But isn’t she beautiful!. Lol. I think so anyway.
Amber and I went to Brett’s junior year soccer banquet this past Sunday. I think the food didn’t agree with me cause my stomach was off for the rest of the day. But I looked good 🙂 It’s hard to believe that he’s going to be a senior next year and then slowly but surely the ride will be over. I really enjoy watching him play soccer. I hope that all his dreams come true for his senior year. I know he’s having a good time at WCU but I now he has his own goals and dreams to accomplish there and I hope he can hit a few more of them. I got to see Marlo afterwards for a little while. There is no proof though cause she was not into selfies this visit. She was not having it 🙂 But even not feeling great I had a nice visit with her. My god daughters all kinda rock!
We haven’t played too much with the band in 2016 this year. It’s been a little slow but Saturday’s show at Parx Casino was crazy. I am very blessed with so many people in my life that will support me, come out to see me, surprise me… rally for me… and the band.. it’s insane. It’s also an amazing feeling. I can’t believe that it’s going to be 20 years in September.
A long time ago when I was 550 pounds and my first transformation was going to happen my dad was trying to motivate me. He had his bracelet that my mom had made custom for him in 1985. I had always loved it. I joked with him that when lost my 100lbs that I wanted it. He was a man of his word because on the day that I got to 400lbs in the summer of 2000, I called to tell him and he told me to come and get the bracelet. He was living in Virginia at the time. And you know what? I went to get it. It’s been one of my prized possession ever since. And I know he’s probably wanted it back since.. I don’t wear it that often because I wouldn’t be able to live if I ever lost it. But sometimes when I get dressed up and need a little reminder of how strong I really am, I put dads bracelet on. I am named after my hero. He’s 70 years old today. My dad is the man.
Well I am gonna get ready for the gym, stop checking my email… and get my stuff together for the range session. Oh and clean up the dog shit in the yard. It’s time to hit it.
