Times a changin'

Well, figured that putting myself out there on sites like Plenty of Fish, Ok Cupid and Match would be the best way to get over my ex-gf. Then I decided, I don't give a fuck right now. This summer is my summer. I've always been shy about going to a pool, taking my shirt off in public (at a pool...OMG... overweight dude...

Weightloss Journey Update

Down another 4 lbs on my weigh-in yesterday. Started at roughly 319, I'm down to 305 since Memorial Day. I've had 1 soda in the last three weeks and absolutely no soda in over 2 weeks. I don't miss it. Diet could be better, but my eating out is way, way down and my eating better is way, way up. It's...

Welp...progress.

Moved on to Week 4 Day 1 of Couch to 5k. Couldn't finish the last 5 minute run all the way through, I had to break it up. I also had my weigh-in this morning. No change on the scale, but I can definitely tell a difference in the way my clothes fit. That's all I can ask for

thebigjankowski:

And another thing... fuck you, Game of Thrones.  I don't know if I should be happy or sad after last night's episode.

Progress.

Hope everyone is awesome in SG land.

I had my weigh in yesterday. 1 week since I decided it was time to take eating and exercise a little more seriously in my life. Dropped 9 lbs. I know it's probably just "water weight", but still... 9 lbs is 9 lbs. I even managed to have a couple nights where I just let loose and...

congrats! i know how hard it is! <3

thebigjankowski:

Thank you! It's a long road, but one worth traveling. 

Change for real this time?

I decided after my breakup last week that I would reinvent myself. It's only been 2 days, but I already feel different. I've focused more on nutrition and working out. I've been playing a lot of hockey lately, so that helps. But over the course of yesterday and today, my normal cravings for fast food have been nil. Zero. Zilch. Nada. This...

thebigjankowski:

Thank you for sharing and on your success. I've had a pretty good week at sticking to things. Looking forward to my weigh-in tomorrow. I usually crave fast food when I'm out and about. I haven't craved it at all this week. 

Back in the Saddle Again!

...I guess.

Was with a girl for 14 months. I let my subscription run out, because this kind of stuff made her uncomfortable. Well, it turns out that we just were not on the same page about the future. For me, I want that family unit. I want to get married. I want to have kid(s) at some point. At 35, I'm not...

Sunday

Beard is incredibly soft tonight. Thank you beard conditioner and shampoo.

And to a lot of beer for helping me with this enlightening blog post.

Good night SG.com.

Everything is Awesome!

The Lego Movie is awesome. Saw it in 3D last night. The main song will be stuck in your head for a bit, but it's worth it. It's too bad the Lego store was closed when the movie was over, I was ready to spend some cash!

And so it begins...

The worst storm ever is here... until the next...worst storm ever.

Kind of excited. Found a The Art of Shaving shop with a barber in it at Easton Town Center. Going in Saturday for a beard trim. Recently getting more into the "beard culture", I've been following guys like Ricki Hall and Chris Millington. Checking out the professional shops in London that specialize...

Awesome Week!

Spent the week in the Caribbean on 70,000 Tons of Metal. While the line up was far from stellar, it was a blast just hanging out with friends that you only get to see maybe once a year. That makes it all worth it. Unfortunately, winter did not take a vacation and was still going on here in Ohio. I think I'm just...

Vacation

Ah... at around 9 am EST tomorrow morning, I'm on my way to Miami, Florida. Can't wait. Two days in Miami, then it's onto 70,000 Tons of Metal. 1 week in the Caribbean with 40 heavy metal bands and some of my best friends.

This is exactly what the doctor ordered.
