Mid June – Goal Reached


The daddy bod is reducing. It is nice to see. My knees and ankles don’t hurt anymore. I have more energy for everything. Life is fun.

Over April and May I lost a combined 20 pounds. It went fast.

Now over the month of June, I have lost ~ 5 pounds. I am at my initial goal. I am just under 200 pounds! I haven’t been under 200 pounds for at least 5 years.

I have to give credit to my wife for helping me eat better over the months of April and May. She did a wonderful job of cooking and watching what we ate.

The technology that helped me with my exercise is the Microsoft Band. I love how it tracks my workouts and keeps up with the time of when I should rest and when to start again.

Now, why was June not as productive as April and May?

The answer is daddy life. Daddy life is when everybody gets busy and meals are an afterthought.

We have had:

  • basketball start,
  • dance recitals,
  • vacation bible camp,
  • girl scouts,
  • birthdays (daughter turned 6 and son turned 1),
  • 10th anniversary with my lovely wife,
  • father’s day and normal summer activities,
  • And house guests.
  • Here is to getting back to eating better. Fewer hotdogs and more healthy stuff, like bacon 😉

    My new goal is to reduce my pants size to a 34
