January Stats – Part I: Drinks

Once again I am doing the food log. I didn’t do it last year. I had another idea I wanted to accomplish but that fell flat. It would’ve been nice if I just did the food log. I have lots of projects I am trying to do this year. The food log seemed like a good idea again. I don’t count calories or look at the portion size. I am doing this for the same reason I did it the first time. I am just curious as to what I eat. Below is what I drank for the first month of this year. I also would like to add that when the year ends, I will tally up the same things I tallied up back in 2010. Be silly to count things and show you a graph and not compare this from 2 years ago. I still don’t know what else I have planned for this project.I am sure I will do a nice update 6 months in. Be patient. Anyway, read on. Here is what I drank in January of 2010 and now here begins the food log  for 01/2012.

Food Log: The Results

Now, I didn’t log it all. I could but that will be a job I don’t want to take one. I did however, log and tally up some of the items I feel I indulged in more than anything. You’re welcome to go back to each month and add up what I ate or drank. I am very proud of myself for keeping at this project. There were a few people who assumed I would give up after a few months. Others said six months. But I showed them. I did it every day. I logged 365 days of food and drinks.

Do I think I will ever change my eating habits? No. I doubt I will. I mean, I do look at some of that stats and get bothered by the amount of soda or alcohol I drank. It’s a high number. I am sure there are other people who drink far more than I do. I am not saying I drink more than you or more than Bill W. I just looked at the three digit number and was a little sick to my stomach. But what do I do? I sit here and nurse a beer. It’ll never end. I will never change my eating habits. I snack too much. I drink too much. Maybe when I resemble a beached whale, I’ll cut back and then start watching what I eat. But while I have this great metabolism, I will eat and drink whatever I want.

When this gets posted, It’ll be the new year. I will not continue this project. This was a one year thing. If anything, I’ll probably eat and drink close to the same thing. It was a long and difficult job to take on. I am happy that I did it. I cannot give you a real purpose as to why I did it but that I was curious about what I eat and how much I eat of it. Below is a chart of some of the drinks and food I ate throughout the year.


Thank you for reading. Happy New Year!

December Stats – Part II: Food

Like previous mentioned, this is the last entry to what I ate during the year of 2010. Even thinking that maybe I was going to eat better the last month, I didn’t. I ate the same crap. The only thing that is different is I didn’t get very much fast food. I guess I was watching my weight. Not that my weight is a problem. I’ll never have a problem with my weight. I am blessed. Women are jealous. Yeah, suck one.

Let’s take a look at the food I consumed during the month of December.

Cookies:

I had a total of 34 cookies this month. It’s Christmas. Someone is always baking cookies and treats around this time. I do love me some cookies. To break it down more,

  • 12 of these were M&M cookies.
  • 3 of these were Peanut Blossoms.
  • 1 was a gingerbread cookie.
  • 2 were sugar cookies.
  • 2 were peanut butter cookies.
  • 10 were chocolate chip cookies.
  • 4 were snickerdoodles.

Other Random Sugary Goodness:

Normally I would have a section just for donuts but for some odd reason, I only ate 1 donut. With that being an odd happening, I am grouping all the goodies I ate throughout the month in one section. It’s nothing shocking. It’s just easier to do this than separate them in all different sections.

  • 1 Chocolate Cup Cake.
  • 1 Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
  • 1 Maple Cinnamon Roll.
  • 1 Handful of Chocolate Covered Raisins.
  • 2 Single Chocolate Covered Fruits (package just said fruit…nothing specific)
  • 6 Peanut Butter Jam Bars.
  • 2 Peanut Butter Balls.
  • 2 Swiss Chocolate Candies.
  • 1 Cinnamon Raisin Bagel.
  • 2 Fruit Bars.
    • 1 Blueberry flavored.
    • 1 Strawberry flavored.
  • 2 Fun Size Bags of Skittles.
  • 1 Butterfinger.
  • 2 Hostess Cherry Pies.
  • 1 Caramello Candy Bar.

Dining Out:

While I didn’t dine out very much this month, I still did it. I am a single guy. I live alone. You try cooking for one person. It’s damn near impossible. When I do cook, I have so much left over, I am eating it for days. This is probably why I don’t cook much at home. I know I complain that I cook all day at work but it’s really the fact of trying to cook for one person. I am not cool with left overs. I like to cook something fresh.  Oh, well. To the list.

  • I had a total of 8 Pizza Street pizza slices during 2 visits. Breaking it down…
    • 3 slices of alfredo pizza.
    • 2 slices of pepperoni pizza.
    • 1 slice of canadian bacon and pineapple pizza.
    • 1 baked potato pizza.

    • 1 side of spanish rice.

    • side of broccoli.
    • breadstick.
  • 2 Bowls of my moms home made chili.
    • side of saltine crackers.

Eating At Home:

This is the list of things I ate at home. Cooking at home is a tough job. If I was married (HA), it wouldn’t be such a challenge. But being only me, it’s a tough task to manage. You’ll notice that some items I ate are quite high. Leftovers, baby. Lots of leftovers.

December Stats – Part I: Drinks

The final month. It is all down to this night. Being that I like alcohol, I still cannot post this till the strike of midnight. I am planning on being up past midnight. If I drink too much or drink too fast, then I won’t be. I’ll be passed out somewhere. I will also be posting a collection of some things I ate and drank in a graph. It’ll be nice to see some of the items added up through this entire year. I will not be adding everything up. It’ll be a very tedious process and not to mention, I don’t think it’s important to know if I ate just a single grain of rice. But with the year ending, I am completed this amazing task. Take a look at the final stats for the month of December.

Coffee:

I always think I drank more coffee than what I have listed. I might have. Like I have said before, I could have missed some items here and there. I’m not perfect. For the month of December I had a total of, 66 coffees. One of those coffees, I am drinking right now. Let’s take a look at the breakdown.

  • 22 of the coffees were Caribou Coffees.
  • 13 were had at Bob Evans.
  • the last of the coffees were Folgers. I had a total of 31.

Alcohol:

I am very shocked and somewhat disappointed with myself with how much I drank this month. I like drinking. It’s just what I do. But to see the number I came up with this month, I cannot think of words to express it. I did tally it up a few nights ago. I was a bit drunk while I was counting. I had added wrong and came to a crazy number. The number you’ll see is still out there but the number I originally amassed was far higher than what I actually drank. For the month of December, I had a total of 122 alcoholic beverages. I wonder what a liver is going for on the black market.

  • 119 of there were bud light bottles.
  • 4 were bud lights in glass mugs.
    • 1 was at a Mexican restaurant
    • 3 were had at a bar.
  • 3 were shots of Sailor Jerry Rum (I puked. :( )

Soda:

This was a low month for soda Shocking. Guess all the beer drinking took away from the caffeine. I had a total of 40 sodas this month. To see what they are, scroll down.

  • 37 of these were Coke.
    • 22 of those were had at work.
    • 12 were cans of Coke.
    • 1 was a 20 oz plastic bottle.
    • 1 was a Medium Coke from McDonald’s.
    • 1 was a glass of Coke from a Mexican restaurant.
  • The last 3 were Pepsi.
  • 1 was a can of Diet Pepsi.
  • 1 was a Pepsi from Popeye’s.
  • 1 was a Pepsi from a Pizza Place.

Juice, Milk, Water & Etc…

I am just going to combine these again. Since they aren’t drastic numbers like the others, this will be suffice.

  • 19 glasses of water.
  • 7 Milks
    • 1 was Strawberry milk.
    • 6 were Chocolate milk.
  • 1 Starbucks Hot Chocolate.
  • 8 Juices.
    • 1 Capri Sun Apple.
    • 1 Capri Sun Grape.
    • 1 Capri Sun Fruit Punch.
    • 4 Oranges Juices.
      • 3 were at Bob Evans.
      • 1 was a Minute Maid Juice at work

This is the last of what I drank for the year of 2010. Happy New Year!

November Stats – Part II: Food

I am just knocking these out. I should have kept up with them in a more timely manner but I slacked on it. Let’s jump right into the facts and be amazed at everything I ate during the month of November. From Thanksgiving dinner to the leftover Halloween candy.

Donuts:

In the month of October, I had a total of 12 donuts. While I do love a nice donut in the morning, I only had 10. Only two less than the previous month. Donuts and cookies are my crack. I do love a good donut in the morning.

  • 12 were Chocolate Chip Cookies.
    • 9 were at work.

Halloween Candy:

Since I really had no kids come by knocking on my door for candy, I was stuck with a bowl full of goodies all to myself. I always make sure when I buy candy for Halloween, it’s candy I’ll eat. If I am getting stuck with it, I want to be sure I’ll eat it. Can’t let this stuff go to waste. I had a grand total of 58 pieces of candy. I should see a dentist.

You’ll see that I made no attempt at cooking at home. I said it once and I will say it again. I cook all day at work. I don’t want to go home and cook again.
