Weight loss vs. beer

Had to do some "research" for a column about TCU kids and bars. Got way too much "information."

Ramblin' Man

Came into some extra cash, so I ended up buying a Nano, and I went on a nice two-album walk yesterday. Of course, it was in the 60s, so it made the walk a lot more pleasant.

38" and holding. THere's a Jack Johnson song the lyrics of which insist that "losing hope is easy." While that might be true, losing weight is not easy at all, partly because of the way the human body works, and partly because laziness is a tough hill to overcome.

Aw crap

Well, anyway, I'm maintaining 38" of gut. I tried jogging sans music yesterday, and I just couldn't focus on it and gave up. Guess I'll buy an iPod nano. Of course, getting my iPod stolen was a drag anyway, but it held sentimental value to me, too. Now it's an even greater inconvenience. I have this time to exercise, but I am having a rough time doing it. Oh well. At least I haven't eaten any garbage, and I did get in a couple hours of walking when I played frisbee golf on Monday afternoon.

Well, it's the New Year, and I've already lost an inch. Back to the high fiber diet, which is really just a lot of beans. I would say that my dietary staples are toasted peanut butter sandwiches andRanch Style black beans. I was doing pretty well with walking, but then someone recently stole my iPod. I know I walked just fine for 26 years or so without one, but walking deliberately to meet an end goal eventually (within the second outing) becomes a chore. I need the distraction. In any case, I'll keep you posted with my progress.
