I've been trying to cut out the beers during weekdays. That's certainly not unreasonable. The trouble with that is the weather just took a turn for the fantastic here. So much so, that i've begun to consider breaking out my shorts. Because, well, i look damned hot in shorts and work boots. (actually, no one looks good in shorts and work boots) Anyways, i've been trying to resist the urge to have a beer out on the deck except i've been waiting all winter to put that deck to good use and it is really calling to me. The deck, probably more than the beer.
Over the weekend, we went to celebrate a friends birthday. It wasn't a big affair but the fact that we hadn't gotten together with these people for a while inspired me to have not one, not two, but three Caesars. That wasn't the best decision. It wasn't the best decision, but it wasn't the worst thing for my diet that i put into my mouth Friday night. My buddy made deep fried chocolate bars. I had two. And yes, they were awesome.

What do you get when you have three Caesars and two deep fried chocolate bars over the course of one evening? Back to 189 pounds, that's what. Not to mention the fact that i am currently in a bit of a friendly competition with Brett Minor over at The Transformed Non-Conformist to try to lose 13 pounds before the end of June. Eating like that isn't going to get me there. OK, it's not really a competition, more of a mutual support thing but he just informed me that he's ready to start hitting the gym now and me, on the verge of spending 14 hours a day sitting in a tractor isn't doing me any favors. If i have any plans of getting into my suit of awesome before the end of June, diet is the one thing i need to get a better grip on. I'm about 2 weeks into this and i've lost one pound......yesh!
Now, i realize that i'm in my mid forties. The chance of me actually having any discernible abs, without spending hours a day in the gym is not really a reality. I'd just like to look a little better and hopefully, feel a little better about myself in turn.
If i could do that, i might even consider wearing THIS, over the course of the summer.
|this goes way better with work boots than shorts!|
............because you can't help but be awesome if you are wearing a work kilt!
