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. With longer hours now, I find myself being lazy when I get home. Before the school year started, I was working maybe 9 hour days. Now I am working 12 hour days. Not always but it usually 10 – 12 hours a day. Too lazy to cook. Too lazy to go out. I skip eating at night. Not smart but I am just lazy.

I had a total of 11 donuts.

  • 10 were Maple Cinnamon Rolls.

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?

August Stats – Part II: Food

Welcome to the second part of my monthly stats of the food (or poisons) and drinks I put inside my body. I am late, so very late, on posting the data for everything I ate the last few months. I will do all I can to get them all up on the site before this month is up. Wish me luck on that.

I mentioned how I am going to change the format of how I post the stats. I’ll basically just be listing the items I ate instead of breaking it down between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

June Stats – Part I: Drinks

I am 6 months into the year. I am still logging it all. I am planning to post the 6 months stats for the year. I will gather up all the information so far and show you what I have already had the first part of the year. I feel like I am slacking on eating correctly. Not that I have really cared about what I have eaten but I am slacking on actually grocery shopping. I am pretty lazy when it comes to that. I mean I work at a grocery store. You’d think I would have no problem finding food. But imagine working 8-10 hours a day and staying longer just to shop. Not saying I hate my work or my store, I just want to get out and go home. If I do need something, I’ll go to another store. It’s closer to my humble abode. After I post the stats for the food and the drinks, I’ll tally up the first 6 months and post it in one lump sum.

May Stats – Part II: Food

It’s that time again. I am here to share with you all the amazing unhealthy things I ate last month. I will say that I am lacking on preparing a home cooked meal. There are many factors. I really have no time. Okay, I do. I just am lazy when I get home. I cook food for about 1800 kids (now, only 1100) every morning. No one wants to spend all day cooking at work, get home and cook more. It’s unheard of. Plus, it’s hard to cook for just one person. I tend to make too much food and rather than saving it for leftovers, I over indulge myself, licking the plate clean. Gluttony at its best.

My fridge is barren. It does have the essentials all good bachelors need. I have my ketchup and miracle whip bottle. I have the pizza box (with one slice still lingering inside), the soda, the beer, and block of processed cheese. I live the good life. It would be a crime if I ever decided to get married and have kids. We’ll stave. But if my wife is a homebody, then she can do the cooking and we’ll probably have food with names I cannot pronounce and textures not seen by many.

Looking back at the year and everything I have ate, it’s basically the same shit over and over again. I said I hate change. When I find something I like, I stick with it. No need to go and be adventurous. It’s too much of a hassle and I am not a “on a whim” kind of guy. Not saying I don’t do things on a whim. I do. Just not very often. But you’re probably asking yourself right now, “so, Kirk. What did you eat last month? All your readers are dying to know. Please! Please, tell us!”

There is the stats for the month of May. I say it about everytime I finish with the stats but I really do need to learn to eat better. I can’t say I try cause I don’t. But you never know. Maybe after this month, I will. I am planning on doing a half way point tally of what I have ate the entire year so far. I don’t know if it will be done but it’s an idea I have. That will take some time. Just keep watching the site. You never know. It might show up.
