Rocky 50 2014...?

Its not sold out, I've got 3 months, and the worst that could happen is that I DNF...

My finger is on the trigger, I've got the bosses permission, the target is in my sights.... If I take the shot and miss, no biggie. But if I hit the target then... Well... Hell I don't know what happens if I actually manage to finish the race, but it would be very kick ass!!!

Im loosing weight!


I've went back to a fruit / veggie only until dinner type diet again. Lots of Fugi Apples, Grapefruits, Oranges and Strawberries. 

I even added a new fruit today that I've never seen before!


Talk about a cool fruit! And yes, it is THAT big! In fact, here's a comparison shot between a regular orange, a large grapefruit, and the Pummelo...

The Pummelo is supposedly the daddy to the Grapefruit. I unknowingly had taken a family poitrait in the above picture. The Pummelo and the Orange for a little tipsy one night (I would imagine Tequilla was involved...) and 9 months later (or the next fall...) little baby Grapefruit came out. Grapefruit was a little bitter about being a bastard son. I mean, whoever heard of a Pummelo anyway?

Ok, now that that's done...

I had a red Pummelo, which is supposedly the more bitter variety and I thought it was quite sweet. Especially when compared with the Grapefruit. 

But man! Talk about a pain in the ass to eat!!! Geevus!!!

Its segmented like any other citrus fruit, but in between the actual edible fruit part is a layer of... Leather? Some very bitter, tough, hard membrane. Here's a picture of it!

And here's a cross section view. 

Of course, I saved the seeds. I figure if I can grow my avocado tree to over 7 foot tall now, I can maybe grow a Pummelo tree? Right?

Inner cleansing

So far this week I ran a double on Monday, 3 in the morning and 3 in the evening, then 3 Tuesday morning, and that's it. I didn't run Tuesday evening, or Wednesday at all and I probably won't run any today (Thursday). And it's not because of a lack of time or want...

It's because in afraid I will shit in my pants. 

On top of eating healthier and running again, I've decided I need to do an inner cleanse to clean out all the toxins and waste that's just sitting in my bowels taking up precious real estate, adding to my protruding gut, and making me feel like crap in general. 

And it working!!!!! Every hour to 2 hours the urge hits and I go speed walking, cautiously, to the nearest bathroom. The whole time hoping and praying that it's not occupied, and that I make it in time! 

Luckily the later of the 2 hasn't become an issue yet! Whew! 

But I haven't been running because I don't want to kick start some action and be stranded without a bathroom within a few seconds of accessibility. I mean, I consider myself a runner and all, but I'm not THAT guy...

Luckily this shit is working (no pun intended...) because my stomach is getting flatter and in pretty sure I'm loosing weight, and I'm feeling better. When the initial "excitement" goes away I will resume running again.

And it starts....

Geez! What return am I on now? 4? 5? Something like that. 

I really need to eliminate these large breaks from running. They kill me. There's always a legit reason for my months on end hiatuses (that is the correct plural form for hiatus, look it up!), from work to remodeling a house so that we can sell it and move, there's always been something. 

And I'm sure there will be several more "something's" come up in the future. That's life. But it sure does suck! Lol! 

Disney World was a blast! It's always fun to get away from the everyday hum drum of life and have fun with the family. I know I said I was going to take pics of my food... But I usually was about half way through stuffing my fat face before remembering that, so I got very few pictures. 

Speaking of fat face. I weighed in this morning at 197.1.... Eeek....

So I har some work to do! I'd like to say that I will be around 180 by my birthday, but who knows. That's 3 months away still, so it's definitely possibly. That only 17 pounds after all. A pound a week would pretty me pretty damn close. 

Oh, and I did run a smidge over 3 miles this morning at a new track that was just built a few months ago. Didn't really like it so I will continue running at the high school.
