An On-Like-Donkey-Kong Weigh-In
October 27, 2010
Change from Last Weigh-In: -0.9 pounds
Change from All-Time High: -59.8 pounds
Small loss, but I’m not surprised. I’m also not going to do a happy jig, because I realize that 0.9 pounds is truly nothing. That’s about a quarter of a percent of what I weigh. Not significant.
But at the same time, I’m not beating myself up. I’ve done that for too long.
Instead, as evidence in the title, this next week is On Like Donkey Kong.
And yes, I realize that made me very, very uncool to actually say that phrase, but it is what it is.
Tina and I have been talking, and we’re both just terribly unmotivated. The wedding at least motivated us to work out, even if the weight loss was minimal. We have so many things that we want to do together, and a healthy lifestyle fits in with every single one of them. And for a few of them, I wouldn’t want to do it without being healthy.
I don’t want to be a fat dad. I still have time to avoid this entirely, because (planned) babies are still a few years off.
I want to grow old with Tina. Still decades left to accomplish this, but I need to make sure I’m around to see those decades.
And superficially, we want to be smoking hot the next time we go to the beach! Tina already is smoking hot in my eyes, but I can definitely stand to lose some weight. Well over one hundred pounds. Maybe even 150ish. I don’t know if I’ll ever have six pack abs or tight skin on my midsection, but I sure as heck want to try. And besides, washboard abs may not be possible, but frickin’ huge guns are completely within my realm of possibility.
More facts coming soon, by the way. I still have almost sixty facts to write just to catch up.
And in other news, I’ve started a new blog.
It’s called The Folder. I won’t be updating it nearly as often as this blog, I’m sure, as it exists to chronicle my various submissions and ultimate rejections and acceptances (hopefully more of the latter, but let’s be realistic) as I try to become published. So far, I’ve only written two posts – the first is a welcome post, and the second is about my latest short story submission.
• Welcome to the Folder
• Story Submission: The Shifter
I also have a cooking blog in the works that I hope will go live this weekend.
And lastly, it would be great if you could swing by Tina’s new blog, Martha Wannabe! Tina is a crafty, kitchen-y, creative person, and this blog is going to be all about that. I have my own wedding post coming very soon, but her first post was all about our wedding, including pictures. So if you would be so kind, swing by her blog and show her some love!
