Current Weight: 387.7 lbs ( -52.3 lbs )
I am up .9 pounds over yesterday. I blame the rolls, and the cheese. I don’t care, yesterday was worth it. I do need to get my shit together though. I am not liking where this is heading. But, for real, have you ever been so frustrated with shit, that you just run to the cupboard, because that is the way I felt yesterday. I am tired of spending money, tired of owing money, tired of shit breaking, tired of getting credit card bills. A lot of things were going on yesterday, and I let it get to me. We will see if I can get back to steak tonight, and go from there.

I walked into work and my heart rate monitor is still on the fritz, it is a piece of crap. I had my usual boring breakfast, but it was cold by the time I ate it. I need to find a replacement for sausage and an egg.
Lunch went as planned, with a jerky and pork rind snack throughout the day. The day was boring and slow.
Dinner stayed on target, with just a steak and 16 oz of vegetables. I had more jerky and pork rinds as a later snack. It is all accounted for.
All in all, it was a good day. Nothing broke, and no unexpected bills popped up. Hopefully this continues through tomorrow. My graphics card is coming early, so tomorrow, I have something to look forward to.
My heart rate monitor is still on the damn fritz. I saw the red light again. I am not replacing this sucker, it can lick my butt cheek. Worthless piece of crap. I am keeping the bracelet though, because it changes the music track playing on my phone, so it is a keeper.
My walk went good. Oh, hey, my thighs burned holes in my compression pants, so I didn’t wear them today. I thought I was going to regret it, and I did a little bit, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I may try it again, or I may look into Under Armor Heat Gear shorts for this summer. Undecided at this point.
My crappy, undersized knee brace is still working like a champ. I need to get a better one though, but after yesterday, I am finding it hard to spend the money. I had about a $1000 saved up, and I threw it on my credit card bill, to try to get a head start on that. That was my parts money, and I think I regret losing it. I think in the end though I would rather have no credit card debt, and start a business in the green, so to speak. I may put together $500 and buy a small batch of parts, and sell them off, and try to build my inventory off of that profit.
I got to work and cooked my usual boring breakfast. I am getting sick of this combination. Stupid egg and sausage, why are you so boring. I should look into omelettes, but if I do, I am getting some cheese in there.
I actually cooked it at 9:00am, but I have been updating this diary, and am just now eating it at 9:53am. It is cold, and I hate it, but I ate it anyway.
Business Ideas, by Kevin
I was thinking, Under Armor should build the heart rate monitor, into the Under Armor shirts, so I can just plug the heart rate monitor into the shirt, instead of wearing a stupid, damn, chest strap. This would only, of course, work on their compression wear, but it is still an awesome idea. Someone find me a patent lawyer, stat.
Kevins’ Stupid Purchases
I bought these Under Armour Genesis 2 Record Equipped shoes, and they are junk. I can never get the pedometer in the shoes to sync to my phone, so that was a worthless addition. Next time I am just getting regular shoes. I mean the Record equipped feature added $25 to these shoes, and it is not worth it.
The heart rate chest strap was another stupid purchase. It is stupid to put on, it smells, and now it is failing. I will not be replacing this.
I think I will be cutting back on my supplement purchases as well. I think I am getting rid of all the vitamins that I am taking, and I will probably get rid of the morning energy cocktail that I buy. I think I will just stick to protein powder. That should reduce my BodyBuilding.com bill from about $200 every two weeks, to about $60 dollars a month. I am still thinking that over, I may keep the muliti vitamin, and possibly the omega 3. But the probiotics, and glucosamine, are worthless as shit. I will see.
I held off on lunch for a bit, trying to put it later in the day. I moved all my snacks to my 4th meal in MFP, because I kinda snack on them throughout the day, but the grand total is accounted for.
I am hoping to get home, and cook up a steak, and get back into the swing of things, regarding this diet.
I am on my third bottle of water today, and right on track there.
I had to pee pretty badly for a bit. I got up to set it free, and a customer walks in. This customer took a good 10 minutes to find their own phone number so I could call them when I had their phone fixed. So I had to stand there twitching and fidgeting while they dig around for their phone number. It was awful. Don’t worry though, I was able to pee shortly after they left. I have a thing about peeing with people around. I think it has to do with the water on water noise.
The walk back to the truck was hard. My knee was acting up, but not too terrible.
I cooked up some steak and vegetables. I stayed out of trouble this evening, and stayed away from the carbs.
I threw another $450 at my credit card bill, trying to get it payed down. Hopefully nothing else breaks or goes wrong. I may buy a new knee brace, and some new leg pants, but that is all I have on the list for now.
