374 – The game’s afoot

Last weekend, I got my birthday present from my wife which was one whole weekend (more or less) away from home, hanging out with my best friend, who lives in a beach house in Newport Beach that is about 30 feet away from the beach. Enjoyed my time down there doing absolutely nothing, and it was everything that I thought it could be, to paraphrase Peter Gibbons.  Now I just have 8 days left until my girls go back to school and become third-graders and I get my afternoons back and I can get back to a normal production schedule, perhaps including work on Book Two. That, my friends, will be sweet.

One other thing I did this past weekend was to purposely not adhere to my diet at all. The scale reflected it, too. I gained 1.8 pounds.


  • STARTING WEIGHT: 284.8 lbs.
  • CURRENT WEIGHT: 276.6 lbs.
  • WEIGHT LOST: -8.2 lbs.

This is a consequence I knew I’d incur and I have no problem with it. My wife and I have also decided that low carb days suck. She explains it much better than I can, so  go check out her latest blog entry.

See you all later!
