Day 85

6:45 am and the children were screaming downstairs, My son to be more specific, at that hour their voices seem to be amplified by the silence of the rest of the world. thats about 30 minutes earlier than my alarm says I need to get up so its a bit annoying to be awoken that way, I mean what could a person have to scream about that early in the morning? this will have to be remedied as it is happening more often lately...Yawn, now I shall be sleepy all day.

I jumped on the scale as soon as I woke up, I am in a downward direction, but I can't help but feel that I would be much lower if I had not eaten the Easter dinners over the weekend, its gone and nothing can be done so no dwelling, but man, it make a fella realize how important staying on track is. "Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment." -Buddha- So no worries.

The intake for the eighty fifth day was pretty much on par with what I should be eating barring a Cadbury egg I had after dinner. I was well within calorie limits, coming in at 1405 total, I feel as if I have been neglecting my veggies lately, not really too bad but not as many veggies as I should be having, it shall be adjusted.

Random news story of the day, I saw a story on the news about a 15 year old kid named Billy Wolfe who is getting bullied so much that his parents are suing one of the bullies, she says that the school board is next on the list to get sued, they have some camera phone footage of the kid fighting another kid, and another of a fight on the school bus. I am unsure how I feel about the "suing" part of this story, I mean the school does have a responsibility to stop these sorts of things from happening, and the Bus company/dept of transportation needs to have control on their buses so maybe something needs to be done there, but sue the bully? the bullies parents need to be made aware I think and then at that point if the situation doesn't improve seek alternative measures. I can remember when I was a kid and was dealing with the whole getting called fat by some other kids in school, as you can guess this was very stressful on a kid and I didn't know exactly how to handle it. my father caught wind via a conversation he over heard and stepped in and his statement to me was "The next time he does it punch him in the face, I bet he stops" so the very next time the kid was laughing and carrying on for his buddies and said "hey fat boy" he got popped in the nose as hard as I could (which turned out to be enough to knock him down and bloody his nose) I would guess this to be 5th or 6th grade, and guess what? that kid never had another word to say to me about my weight, and neither did a lot of kids after that. I guess my point is that this world we live in has become a little too PC, I think this kid needs to grow a pair and whack one or two of these so called bullies in the mouth and see how that goes for him, its not like hes a small guy or anything, he was a decent sized kid. oh well..onto the menu lol

As Ever


  1. bullies suck.

    I would smack his damned parents BUT of course that wouldn't help either.

    I had a hard time in school always getting picked on by someone BUT for stupid reasons mostly caused by my self. Over here you had four choices
    total outcasts

    I was a total outcast after trying on nerd for a while. of course that meant drinking, skipping school, having wild parties and the like. I was a horrible child. I NEVER backed down no matter how scared I was to anyone. I swore revenge on all who bothered me. what a dumb-A** I was.

    what the hell sue the kids parents maybe they are too big to knock down! BUT I hope the kids parents are prepared to deal with the mess they create. no good will come of this.

    good for you beating on the jerk that picked on you what an arse!

  2. yes....grow a pair and smack him in the mouth a couple of times....
    the schools now are so strict on fighting. They try to be strict on bullying, but I guess it's hard to prove's not hard to prove getting punched in the face...
    So, I wouldn't know what to do in that situation. A law suit? I can't imagine that. Pressing charges of some sort? Restraining order or something like that?? Maybe so.
    Easter dinner remorse: Don't worry about those two little ole days of enjoying yourself!! That's just GOING to happen occasionally, so you may just have to figure in that type of thing into your overall plan and time frame. You've done just about as perfect as a guy can get on a diet....just 2 days of not worrying is awesome!
    Okay, actaully, right now I'm so freaking tired. I bet none of this comment even made sense. I'd probably say more noramally, but right now, I'm half-dead. :(

  3. So why was your little one making such a racket so early?

    I used to hate veggies, but now they are the majority of what I eat, lol. Some I still don't and probably never will like. I just eat the ones I like and forget about the rest ;)

    That's weird suing the school district or whatever. My kids school has a zero tolerance policy for bullying so it's pretty strict about making sure kids aren't bullied. I think that it can go too far and get kids in trouble that weren't bullying just to make sure they are covering their @sses. I hate bullies, it's so easy to pick on someone that's either smaller than you, or has low self-esteem just to make yourself seem better. Ugh, some people suck!

  4. Andeely, he was makin such a racket because he forgets to use his indoor voice, and apparently has no concept of time and that at that hour people are sleeping 2 rooms away. grrrrr lol

    As Ever

  5. Okay, so I was bored. I am "tagging" you - - just like Holly did once already. I don't know if it's against "the rules" to tag someone who'e already been "tagged" but I don't care. I didn't have many people to "tag". So, there. I did it. TAG...YOU'RE IT.

  6. sorry buddy, triple tag..... it's Robyn's fault. She and Holly started it! lol
