Diet Check-in #14 provides me some hope. I’m not nearly caught up to where I was before I started sliding backward, but I’ve at least recovered from Thanksgiving. Of course, the days leading up to Christmas and New Years will be riddled with their own pitfalls and challenges. Opportunities for cookies and treats will abound

For Diet Check-In #13, I might as well be admitting to a rock bottom of sorts. Why? Well, I’m up three pounds from last week. Yes! Three pounds! That makes this chubby dude sad. I guess I’m still weighing in less than I did when I started this train wreck, so it could be worse.

Sadly, diet check-in #12 does not come with good news. It doesn’t come with bad news either, I suppose. It only comes at all because I’ve apparently committed myself to checking in here weekly, regardless of whether or not I’ve made progress. This week, again, there has been no progress. Well, I haven’t been making

CR-V Camper Conversion Part 6 is admittedly behind schedule. Hell, part 5 was over a month ago. What the hell have I been doing? Have I given up? Nah. I’ve been busy. There’s been a lot going on lately. Often, when I do find myself with a little time to spare, the weather isn’t playing

Unfortunately, there’s nothing new to report with diet check-in #11. My weigh-in this morning resulted in the same sad number as last week, which was an even 260 pounds.

Diet Check-in #10 unfortunately comes with a bit of a setback. But wow, I nailed it. Last week I predicted that I’d not only lose ground again, but that I’d break 260. This morning, for my weekly weigh-in, I came in at 260 on the nose. I sound excited about that. Why? I’m gaining weight!

Who wouldn’t jump at the chance at mixing business and pleasure in St. Louis? This last weekend was WordCamp U.S. 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri. After getting the nod from my boss man, and along with another coworker, I signed right up. At first, I wasn’t crazy about giving up a weekend for work. But

Yeah, this wasn’t the best week. It’s been rough. I’m up a bit. What of it? I’ll probably be up even more next week. You gonna give me a hard time then too? Should I ignore you now or later? Kidding. Go ahead and give me shit. I deserve it. Weekly Weigh-in: 257.0 That’s right.

I’m adding this post to my “Grilling & Smoking” category. It was only on the grill for no more than two minutes, but I think that as long as the meat touched flame, even if for only a brief moment, then it should count. That’s my rule and I’m sticking to it. Okay, so I

Oh man, I blew it! I was so close to having a new low weekly weigh-in this week, but I went and blew it. Dammit, anyway I came in at 255.8 this morning. It’s definitely an improvement over the last couple weeks, and definitely a move in the right direction, but based on how it
