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.

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!

October Stats – Part I: Drinks

When I began this project, I was great at getting the information posted within a few days after the month. As of lately, I haven’t. I am 2 months behind. There is two days left of the year and I have to get this completed before the clock strikes 2011. Below is the list of what I drank during the month of October. There is one big change to my coffee drinking. The company I work for switched over to a new coffee brand. We once offered superior coffee. I liked it. Hell, I like coffee. It really doesn’t matter where the eff it comes from. Coffee is good. With the change, we now offer a top dollar brand. We proudly serve Caribou coffee. I like it. I can’t do the heavier coffee. Bold coffee or anything close to it, hurts my stomach. It gives me chest pains. I drink a lighter coffee they offer.To sum up the month of October,

Coffee:

I had a total of 68 coffees during the month of October. Most of the coffee I drink is at work. I do have coffee at home but I don’t drank it unless I am hungover (which is becoming a regular thing now) or I have a day off and wake up early enough to brew myself some.

  • 5 of these coffees were from Quiktrip. If my schedule at work alters from the normal, I head here for a cup to drink before we start brewing our own coffee at work. I am seldom here. But when you need coffee, you find yourself coffee.
  • 3 of these coffees were Starbucks. As I said earlier, we switched our coffee at work to a better, more upscale coffee. We have a Starbucks in our store. I don’t need that much coffee. This is a pretty low number compared to the previous amount of Starbucks I normally drink.
  • Another 3, were Folger’s coffee I brewed at home. I do love those instant bags of coffee.
  • 8 were had at Bob Evans.
  • 49 coffees were had at work.
    • Of those, 37 were Caribou coffees.
    • The other 12 were the old coffee my store once offered.

Soda:

I had at total of 58 sodas during the month of October. That’s a little more than the previous month but judging by how much I drink each month, it’s a safe and average number. Of that soda,

  • 55 were cokes.
    • 28 were had at work.
      • 1 was a 12 oz styrofoam cup
      • 27 were my normal 20 oz styrofoam cups.
    • 14 were cans of coke
    • 2 were the plastic 20 oz. bottles of coke
    • 3 were large cokes I had at the movies (Soul To Take, Paranormal Activity 2, Saw 3D)
    • 8 were from dining out
      • 2 were from a local restaurant (Tommy’s)
      • 3 were form McDonald’s
      • 2 were from Subway
      • 1 was from Burger King
  • 3 were Pepsi’s.

Alcohol:

This is really a bad habit I need to break. I like drinking. I just find myself drinking more excessively these last few months. It is almost 2011. I guess I could make a resolution. I say that now but I won’t. Anyway, for the month of October, I had a total of 65 alcoholic drinks. Oh, look! That’s one less than September! I guess I am cutting back!

  • 56 of these beverages were Bud Light
    • 52 were bud light bottles.
    • 2 were tall mugs at a local bar.
    • 2 were bud light cans (I hate cans!)
  • 8 were Budweiser bottles.
  • 1 was a miller light can.

Juices:

I drank a total of 6 juices in October.

  • 3 were orange juices had at Bob Evans.
  • 3 were minute maid juices drank at work.
    • 1 cranberry grape juice
    • 1 cranberry apple raspberry juice
    • 1 orange juice

Etc…

Here is the rest of the crap I drank during the month of October.

  • 5 chocolate milk pints
  • 1 chick-fila lemonade
  • 27 8oz tumblers of fresh H20.

September Stats – Part II: Food

Here are the stats for the month of September. While I was writing up the list of everything, it looked as if I didn’t eat much. I am going to blame this on work.

September Stats – Part I: Drinks

Like before, I am behind in updating the stats. I really need to knock these out. We only have two more months left in the year. I was planning on doing a 6 months stat of what I drank and ate but that never happened. Hopefully, I can do it for the whole year. I am extremely proud that I have kept this up. I thought I would fail midway through. Someone I worked with said I would only last 2 or 3 months before I stopped. I proved her wrong. I thought I would make it at least 6 months, maybe 8. I do slack on logging the food and drinks now. Every night before bed I would log the food into outlook. For the past 2 weeks, I don’t do it till the next day. I just have to change the date settings on the computer to make sure it is logged correctly. It would be a disaster if I was off by one day. Everything would be ruined. I bet you’re asking yourself right now, ‘what did Kirk drink the month of September?’. Okay. I’ll tell you.

Coffee:

During the month of September, I had a whopping total of 62 coffees. That’s a little less than the month of August. It seems like a normal average of mine. Anywhere between 50-70 coffees a month. I don’t think I have ever hit 70 coffees though.

  • 6 of those were Starbucks coffee. I have toned down a lot on Starbucks coffee. The last month (October) will explain the reason why I really don’t drink Starbucks anymore. I am not saying I don’t drink it but another alternative has fallen into my lap.
    • 2 were Starbucks via coffees.
    • 3 were large Starbucks coffees.
    • 1 was a small Starbucks coffee.
  • 1 was a QT coffee.
  • 1 was a Caribou Coffee.
  • 6 were from my friend, Bob Evans.
  • 10 were Folgers Coffees.
  • The rest were at work. I had a total of 38 coffees.

I love coffee way too much. I don’t think I drink the most out of anyone. But it is my normal drink in the morning when I arrive at work. Nothing beats a hot cup of coffee at 5am.

Soda:

I still drink soda. I still call it soda. I had 54 sodas during the month of September. Still sounds like a decent number. I am still a stickler for Pepsi and Coke. It would be a rare occurrence if you saw another soda on the list.

  • 51 of those were Coke.
    • 20 were cans of coke.
    • 1 was a plastic 20 oz. bottle of coke.
    • 21 of those were had at work.
    • 5 of those were from McDonald’s
      • 2 medium sizes.
      • 3 large sizes.
    • 1 from Popeye’s.
    • 1 from the Clean Place.
    • 1 was from a Biscuit Place out in North Carolina. (Biscuitville)
    • 1 was from Burger King.
  • The last 3 were Pepsi’s.
    • 1 was from Popeye’s.
    • 1 was had at Pizza Street.
    • 1 was from (if you’re ever in Kansas City, check it out!) Philly Time

Alcohol:

I was looking at the month of June. I don’t know what happened that month. I barely drank. It was like 25.  The month of September, I had 66! Less than the previous month (77 in August). I am scared to see what October brings. I feel like I am drinking more and more every day. So long, Liver. You were a good friend.

  • 60 were Bud Lights. My favorite beer. I drink others but I choose this. Breaking it down more,
    • 10 were cans of Bud Lights. Not a fan of cans. But you take what you get.
    • 43 were long neck bottles.
    • 5 were from 54 Street Bar and Grill.
      • 3 tall mugs.
      • 2 small mugs.
    • 2 were had at another bar. I cannot recall the name. I was sober. I just don’t recall the name.
  • 2 were Natty Greene’s Wildflower. A pub and brewery out in North Carolina.
  • 2 cans of Milwaukee’s Best.
  • 2 were Budweiser Bottles.

Juices:

I had 10 juices during the month of September. Two more than last month. It is about an average number for the amount of juices I drink per month. Breaking it down for ya!

  • 1 was a Capri Sun Fruit Punch. Not sure if it’s really a juice but since the package says juice. I am going with juice.
  • 1 was a Minute Maid Cranapple Raspberry Juice.
  • 8 were Orange Juices.
    • 2 were From Bob Evans.
    • 5 were tall glasses of Minute Maid Orange Juices.
    • 1 was a crappy canned orange juice I had on the plane.

Water:

I still take my Valerian Root pills. I doubt they do anything but it is one of those things I do now just because it is becoming a habit. I had a total of 25 waters that month.

  • 18 were 8 oz. tumbler size waters. This is what I drink whenever I take the pills.
  • 3 were tall glass bottles of water.
  • 1 was a 20 oz. styrofoam water I had at work. I was probably having an attack and needed something to calm me down. I don’t recall. Maybe I was just thirsty.
  • 1 was an aquafina 8 oz. plastic bottle.
  • 2 were 10 oz. cups of water I had at work. Again, probably more attacks. I don’t just drink water cause I like the taste of it.

Etc…

Other crap I drank this month.

  • 1 10oz. lemonade.
  • 7 chocolate milk pints.
  • 1 Reese’s Shake*

*Not sure if you would consider this a food item or a drink item. It came in a cup. You got a straw. So it’s drink. But technically, you eat it. What do you think? Food or beverage?
