August Stats – Part I: Drinks

I don’t know what happened. I really cannot explain why I slacked on the updating on my food and drink stats. My best guess is work. We started back up on our school accounts. They are a very tedious process and take all the life from me. That really isn’t an excuse. I do have days off. Lately, I have been blogging about the most random crap imaginable. I have finally decided to make the day that I return to getting updated with my stats. I am going to be posting one everyday. I say that now but come tomorrow, I’ll forget and get even further behind. Anyway, on with the stats.

Oh, and since I am behind, I am probably going to switch up the format I normally did. Being so far behind, I am not sure what I had for lunch or for breakfast. Maybe next month, I’ll go back to the way it was. Till then, I am doing it half-assed.

Coffee:

I had a total of 66 coffees. That is more than I had in the month of July. I still enjoy my cop of java in the morning and if I am off, I’ll fix me a cup or I head to Starbucks for a little something stronger.

  • 4 of those coffees were from Starbucks. I was on vacation during this month. I wasn’t really for running around. I tended to be a recluse. Sure, I went out sometimes. But I stayed home and brewed my own. Which is why,
  • 19 of those were Folger’s instant coffee.
  • 10 were had at Bob Evans. The 10 I drank were had during my 3 visits to my favorite breakfast place.
  • Finishing off the rest of my coffee, I had a total of 33 cups of coffee at work. Most days, I have two cups. There have been times I only have one. There’s been the rare occasions when I have 3. I get pretty wired on three. Too much coffee and it makes me jittery.

Soda:

I am sorry. I love soda far too much to ever quit drinking it. As I was writing up the stats for the month of August, I was appalled at the amount I drank that month. I could slow down on drinking it. Ha. Like that’ll happen. During the month of August, I had a grand total of 62 sodas. Like normal,

  • 58 were Coke
    • 21 were had at work.
    • 31 were cans of coke.
    • 4 were the 20 oz plastic bottles of coke
    • 1 was a large Burger King coke.
    • 1 was had at the movies when I went to see, “Inception”
  • 4 were Pepsi
    • 1 was a can of Pepsi
    • The last 3 were from take-out.
      • 2 from Popeye’s Chicken
      • 1 was from Ming Garden

Juice:

I like juice. I am just not a very big juice drinker. When the year started, I was pretty good at having a juice about every few days. But that time has passed. I am back to skipping the juice and just going with the coffee.I had a measly 8 glasses of juice.

  • 3 were Orange Juices had at Bob Evans.
  • 3 were tall glasses of Minute Maid Orange Juices had at home.
  • The last 2, were 16 oz. bottles had at work.

Alcohol:

This is a given. I don’t think there is a week that goes by without me drinking someone bad for my liver. For the month of August, I had 77 alcoholic beverages.

  • 72 were Bud Lights
    • 15 were had at the Bars
    • The other 57 were bud light bottles I had at home or at a friends house.
  • 2 were Coronas
  • 2 were Miller Lights
  • 1 was a Natty Light

I am still in awe that I haven’t drank Captain Morgan in such a long time. I best be getting around to it again. I have 2 bottles sitting on my fridge. Soon. I’ll drink them soon.

Etc…

This is the rest of the crap I drank during the month of August. I did drink water but compared to the month of July, it doesn’t compare. If I would have drank more of nature’s beverage, I’d have put it in its’ own category.

  • 10 8 oz tumblers of water
  • 1 32 oz. Powerade Fruit Punch
  • 7 Chocolate Milk Pints
  • 4 Tall glasses of Lemonade

There are the stats for the month of August. I will do my best to post the food I ate for this month tomorrow. Believe me, I hit myself every night for not keeping up to date with all this. I don’t like falling behind. There are plenty of post I am wanting to share but these have to get finished before I go out and change the subject again. Thank you for reading. I’ll see you next time.

July Stats – Part I: Drinks

I would like to apologize about my lack of updating. I am on a hiatus. Or, I was. I will explain it later in a some to come post. I had many chances to post the stats but I just didn’t have the urge to. I just kept saying, “tomorrow. I’ll do it tomorrow.” Guess I was wrong. Now, after 2 weeks, I finally found the energy I needed to get this posted. I will get the six months stats posted. I just have slacked on that too. Anyway, here are the stats from last month.

Coffee:

This is a shocker. I had only 48 coffees this month. This is the lowest number I have had all year for coffee. I don’t know why. I have been coming in later to work than normal. Maybe that is a reason why. It’s okay. I am sure next month (August) will be back to normal. I need my coffee. I like my coffee. It’s my drug. Let’s see where each of those cups came from.

  • 15 of those were from Starbucks. More than last month. I only had 9 last month. I have been finding myself going their more than usual. Not a big deal. I was just happy I was cutting back on it.
  • Normally, I can have close to 40 cups of coffee from work. This time around, I only had 20 of the small cups of coffee from work. That is a huge difference from the normal. Last month, I had close to 50. 47 to be exact. What on earth did I do to totally eff up my normal intake?
  • The last of my coffee came from Bob Evans. I made 4 trips there. From all the refilling and my carefully and precise calculations, I had 13 cups of coffee from Bob. Which is about right. I have about 3 cups per visit.

Soda:

Still my weakness. Something I doubt I will ever kick to the side. Gal at work is already at 2 weeks. Maybe less, maybe more. Still, she’s doing fantastic. I did it for a week. It wasn’t what was killing me. I thought it was. So since I took the caffeine out of the ‘why am I dying’ pile, I went back to over indulging in the sweet, sweet soda. Aside from my unnecessary babble, I had a grand total of  63. Sheet! It went up from last month. Even if you include the week without soda, it’s still more.

  • 58 were Cokes.
    • 25 of those were had at work.
    • 25 were cans of Coke.
    • 3 were from McDonald’s. All large sizes.
    • 1 was from Burger King. If I was to edit the total amount of soda, it would be 62 3/4. I really only drank 3/4 of the coke from Burger King.
    • 3 were the 20 oz. plastic bottles of coke.
    • 1 was at the movies. I saw, “Dinner for Schmucks“.
  • 5 were Pepsi’s.
    • 2 were had at Pizza Street. Just a one time visit. Went back for a second cup.
    • 1 was had at Philly Time.
    • 1 was had at Ming Garden.
    • 1 was a can of Diet Pepsi.

Juice:

Not much just this month. I only had 7.

  • 4 of those juices were Orange Juices I had at Bob Evans.
  • 1 was a small minute maid juice I had at work.
  • 2 small servings of a punch we made at work one day. It consisted of (squirt, hawaiian punch, pineapple juice)

Water:

I don’t know why I am bothering putting water on the list. Maybe I feel I need to as a reminder that I need to keep drinking it. I have been drinking it. I take it when I take a pill. I ran out of the pills last month. I just don’t drink water now. Oh well. For the month of July, I had a total of 27 waters.

  • 1 was at the local bar. It must have been a crazy night. I bet it was.
  • 17 were had at home after I took a pill or if I was being good, a glass before bed.
  • 9 were at work. I was outside, working in the heat.
    • 3 were 20oz. sizes.
    • 6 were 10oz. sizes.

Alcohol:

Look at me. Every month, I get closer to killing my liver. I am sure if I was to ever meet my liver on the street, he’d kick my ace. I had a total of 68 beers. Compared to last month, I had 43 more this month.

  • 65 were my favorite beer, Bud Light.
    • 58 of those were long neck bottles. I don’t like cans.
    • 7 were had at the local hangout, 54th Street.
      • 5 were the tall mugs.
      • 2 were the smaller mugs. I tend to always get one more and the last one is always a small mug.
  • 2 were Coor’s light bottles.
  • 1 was a Miller light bottle.

I haven’t had Captain Morgan is such a long time. I need to get back to it. The bottles are still sitting on the top of my fridge. Maybe I’ll get the balls to dabble in the delicious rum I once craved all the time.

Etc…

To finish of the list,

  • 3 were the 32oz. size Fruit Punch Powerades.
  • 1 was a pint size of Belfonte Chocolate Milk.

There you go, kiddies! I know you were all wondering what the eff I drank last month. Above is the crap I put into my body. Make sure you click on the next post to see the food I ate.

April Stats – Part I: Drinks

I noticed as I collected all the data for this past month, I am not doing anything good to my body. I don’t eat right. I don’t drink right. It’s amazing that with the crap I put in my body, I still stay slim. Everyone says when I hit 40, it’ll come to haunt me. It’s okay. I have 10 more years to improve my eating habits. I am four months into the year and I still log it all. Pretty impressive, huh? Enough of this babbling. Let me show you the stats for the crap I drank.

Coffee:

This month, I had a total of 70 3/4 coffees. Damn. Even with me cutting back on starbucks coffee, I still somehow drink too much. I love coffee though. It’s a nice pick me up. I can drink coffee about any time of the day. It’s even more than what I had at the start of the year. In January, I had 61.  Not that much more but compared to last month (51), I am not doing anything good. To break it down,

  • 6 of those were Starbucks. Now that is impressive. Last month I had 12 and before that, I had 26.

    • 2 of those, were small coffees.
    • 4 were the largest size.

If I keep the math the same (not changing the fact that 2 were smaller size, meaning cheaper, I’ll keep it at the base price of $2.19)

6 x $2.19 = $13.14

  • This month, I had a staggering amount of coffee at work. This is something I really need to ease up on. I mean, look at last month. I had 5. This month I had, 44. I am not even going to do the math. You can see for yourself the huge increase. I can’t help it! I just love coffee. Maybe I can try (and when I say, try, I mean not to) to ease up and only get one cup a day. Who knows. I’m sure it won’t happen.
  • I made 2 trips to Bob Evans this month. I had a total of 5 3/4 cups. That seems about average. I don’t stay there very long. Plus for some reason, their coffee makes me sleepy.
  • The rest of my coffee is drank at home. I have my instant Foldger’s coffee I drink almost every day. Sometime I drink it twice a day. These came to total of, 19.

Soda:

I am still going to drink soda no matter how much I say I won’t. Sure the sugar and other additives are eating away at my insides. It’s like a liquid carnivorous earwig. Last month, I had 56. This month, I had 61. And where did I get all these sodas at? Let me show you.

  • 58 of those were Coke.
    • 28 of those Cokes, were had on break at work.
      • Out of 18 days, 10 days consisted of me having 2 on break
    • 23 of those were cans of coke
    • 2 were from McDonald’s
    • 2 were from Burger King
    • 1 was a small 12oz. glass from work
    • The last 2 were from a trip to a local BBQ restaurant.
  • 3 of those were Pepsi
    • 1 from Philly Time
    • 1 from Popeye’s Chicken
    • 1 from Ming Garden

Juice:

I was on a juice kick last month. I was hoping to keep doing it but no. Like every goal I make with this log, I don’t keep it.This month I had a total of  10 juices.

  • 8 of those juices were Orange Juice
    • 2 were from my trip to Bob Evans
    • 1 was a tall glass of Orange Juice at my moms (she made a delicious breakfast! Free too!)
    • 1 was a 15.2 oz Minute Maid bottle (it was my sister’s birthday. I treated it. Great brother right here!)
    • The final 4 were small 10oz bottles
  • 2 were 10oz. bottles of Minute Maid Mixed Berry

Alcohol:

How I missed you. Last month I had 40. This month I had, 25. I was really hoping that being alone again, I would kill my liver in month. But, no. I am cut back on my alcohol and I don’t know why. Hopefully I can get my groove back. If Stella can, anything is possible.

  • 23 of my measly 25 were Bud Light bottles.
  • The final 2 were Schlitz.

Milk:

I feel as if I have more milk this month than I have in the last 10 years of my life. I usually grab a milk in the morning when I get muffins or donuts to snack on. It’s some pretty damn good milk too.I had a total of 10 milks.

  • Those 10 milks were all chocolate milks. The brand? Belfonte! Eff Tea Double You.

Etc…

To finish off the stats for drinks, here it my Etc… list.

  • 3 8oz. cups of water.
    • 1 was when I began to have an anxiety attack. I am still clueless as to what brings them on. I was at Target buying a few things. Picked up some toothpaste, a candy bar and a toilet brush. Now if my buying a toilet brush its that serious it brought on an attack, I have issues.
    • The other 2 were when I took some Valerian Root pills. They say it helps with stress/anxiety.

And that is it folks! That is the stats for the month of April. I don’t see much difference in what I drink. Only upside is the amount of Starbucks I have cut back on. At the start of the year I had 25 Starbucks. This month it was 6. Impressive my young Padawan.

March Stats – Part I: Drinks

I was surprised as how fast March flew by. No matter. I still logged it all. Nothing has changed. I still drink way too much coffee, I drink far too much soda, and never enough juice, water or milk. I thought that maybe if I keep logging all I eat and drink, I’ll notice some bad patterns and put a change to them. Sadly, that didn’t happen.

Coffee:

I had a total of, 51 coffees. That’s a little more than last month. It stillisn’t close to what I first drank this year. So I can at least be happy that my coffee intake has went down. Of those 51,

  • 12 belonged to Starbucks. Eff yeah! That’s half of what I drank last month and less than what I drank in January. I am not spending so much now on this rich man’s coffee. I only indulged myself with 2 on one day. Doing the same math as before, I only spent $25.80.
  • 5 of those coffee’s are from work. I have drank less than last month as well. I have treated myself to more juice later on in the morning. It’s not that I am trying to stop drinking coffee in the morning, it’s more or less having no time to grab me a cup.
  • I visited Bob Evan’s only one last month. Shocking! It’s almost my third home. I still went and still had my coffee. I had a total of 2 1/2 coffee’s. The half is them topping it off. You know how hard it is to keep track of that [censored] when they walk over and refill my cup? I have to work math into my log.

Now was that 3/4 full or 2/3? Dammit, Lucas! Stop refilling my cup! I have stats to track!

  • The rest of my coffee is all at home. I went grocery shopping (something I never do) and picked up some Foldger’s coffee instant brew. I boil my water and dip the bag for 15 seconds and then I have myself a nice, hot cup of coffee. It isn’t starbucks but I spent less than 6 bucks on the package. The Foldger’s coffee amounted to, 31 1/2 cups. The 1/2 was me being a fiend. I boiled more water and got myself a little more life out of my coffee bag. It wasn’t great but it didn’t suck. Will I do it again? Probably not.

Soda:

I will say it again. I drink way too much soda. Way, way too much! For the month of March, I had a total of, 56 sodas. I shall break it down for ya now.

  • 50 of those were Coke
    • 28 were had at work on break.
      • Out of 16 days, 11 of those days consisted of having 2 on break.
    • 2 20 oz. plastic bottles of coke
    • 11 cans of coke
    • 2 large McDonald’s cokes
    • 1 large coke from Burger King
    • 4 were from restaurants
      • 1 was from Perkins
      • 2 were from Outback Steakhouse
      • 1 was from “The Clean Place”
    • 1 30z serving of coke
    • 1 10oz. serving of coke
  • 5 of those were Pepsi
    • 1 Pepsi was from Philly Time
    • 1 was a large glass of Pepsi at home
    • 1 was from Ming Garden
    • 1 was from Pizza Street
    • 1 was from Margaritas
  • 1 was a can of Sprite
    • When I moved in to my new apartment, they gave me a gift basket. This was inside. I normally don’t drink Sprite unless I feel ill (which is never), but I had no coke at the house. Plus, I was really thirsty and water just won’t cut it.

Juice: I drink a lot more juice than I used to. Last month I had 18 juices. This month I had 15. Okay. So I drank less than last month. Hell, I even drank more soda this month too. Not gonna lie. I don’t check or even try to improve what I eat or drink. I am a stubborn Es Oh Bee.

  • 5 of the juices were Minute Maid Cranberry Apple Raspberry.
  • 5 were Orange Juices
    • 2 were 15oz servings of Minute Maid Orange Juice
    • 2 were 10oz servings of Minute Maid Orange Juice
    • 1 was a large glass of orange juice from Bob Evans
  • 1 was a Minute Maid  Cranberry Grape Juice
  • 4 were 10oz servings of Minute Maid Mixed Berry Juice

Alcohol: I was pretty sure I didn’t drink that much this month. I mean I only really had people over 3 times this month. I haven’t drank alone. I didn’t even go out to the bar and drink. Somehow and I don’t know how but I had:

  • 33 beers
    • 32 were original Bud Lights
    • 1 was a Bud Light Lime
  • 5 shots of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
  • 1 was an angry sip of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
    • Video will come soon. A co-worker and I got a little too loud drinking away the night. I upset Carlos.
  • 1 shot of Plum Saki

Milk: I have had only 1 glass of milk so far this year. I am not including the hot chocolate I drank. Though there is milk in it, it’s not really milk anymore. This month was different. This month, I had a total of 6 servings of milk. Below are my findings.

  • 1 1/2 pint of Anderson/Erickson chocolate milk
  • 4 pint sizes of Belfonte Chocolate Milk
  • 1 large glass of Hy-vee Vitamin D white milk
    • I also had a very tiny sip of said milk. I had an inkling it was about to spoil. I had to test it first. It was bad. :(

Etc… Below are the rest of the items I drank this month that haven’t yet made it to the top of the drink chain. Once I believe I begin to drink more of a certain item, I will add it to the count sheet. For now, they will stay in the etc… section of the stats.

  • 1/3 glass of water at a local restaurant (Margaritas)
  • 2 mugs of home made Hot Chocolate
  • 10 servings of lemonade
    • 4 of them were glasses of Kool-aid lemonade
    • 3 of them were glasses of Kool-aid pink lemonade
    • 2 of them were 10oz servings of Minute Maid Lemonade
    • 1 of them was a 12oz can of Country Time Pink Lemonade

Now I know the amount of lemonade I drank this month surpasses the amount of milk I drank but I feel this is just a fluke. I swiped some packages of kool-aid from my mother’s house. I don’t see my doing this much. But if by chance I do get courageous again and swipe more, then yes, I will add lemonade to the above stats. I plan on posting my food stats tomorrow. Thanks for reading.

Do you think the amount of soda I drink is unhealthy?

February Stats – Part I: Drinks

Before I start this post, I need to give myself a pat on the back. I am still going strong on logging in everything I have ate and drank so far. Like January, I am going to post everything I drank and then within a day or two, I will post what I ate.

Here is February. It’s the shortest of all the months. Black history month, Groundhog Day and Valentine’s day all fall in it. I don’t celebrate any of them. I wonder if I ate and drank more this month than last month.

Like before, I’ll post in the same format.

For this month, I had a total of 42 coffees. Let me break it down for you:

  • Starbucks: 26 total. Each coffee cost me about, $2.15. This month I spent, $55.90 on Starbucks coffee. Out of the 28 days, 1 day consisted of 2 coffees. Totaling last month and this month, I have drank, 51 Starbucks coffees and spent a whopping, $109.65! Someone needs to slow down on this coffee. I tried. Really, I did. I just like coffee. If I keep this trend up, drinking roughly 26 coffees a month, I could be looking at a total expense of:

26 coffees x 12 months = 312 coffees

312 coffees x $2.19 = $683.28

If I refer back to this previous post, my total amount is cut in half. Good, yes?

  • With my schedule being changed, I don’t drink my quick morning coffee as often. Compared to last month, I drank 11 less coffees. This month I had, 8 small coffees and 2 large coffees.  The sizes are still the same. The small cups are 8 oz. and the large coffees are 20 oz. servings.
  • I visited Bob Evans twice this month. I had a total of, 5 coffees. That is 8 less than last month. It seems about right. I visited Bob Evans 4 times month. I average about 3 coffees per visit.
  • I had lunch twice at, “Philly Time”. Usually going there means I will get a coffee at Latte Land. I had a total of 2 coffees from Latte Land this month.

Soda:

I told a friend I would try cutting back on soda this month. I don’t think I did. I cannot recall without looking what I drank last month soda wise, but I am sure I either drank about the same, if not more. I had a total of:

  • 43 1/2 cokes
    • 18 1/2 of those are from work. They are 20 oz servings. The half serving is when a co-worker knocked my drink over, losing about 1/2 of it. Out of the 14 days I had these size cokes, 5 days consisted of having 2 cups worth.
    • 20 canned cokes
    • 3 of the 43 were the 20 oz plastic coke bottles
    • 1 was a medium size drink from Burger King.
    • The last coke was when I went to the movies. I saw, Legion. I do not recommend it. It was horrible. I had 1 serving.
  • 8 pepsi’s
    • 1 Pepsi was from Subway.
    • 2 of these were from, Ming Garden. It’s a chinese place I frequent often.
    • 1 was from a local  Italian restaurant.
    • 2 were from my sandwich place, “Philly Time”
    • 1 was from my monthly (sometimes bi-monthly) visit to “Popeye’s Chicken”
    • The last Pepsi I had this month was from, Pizza Street.

That is all the soda I drink this month. That is a total of, 51 sodas. Compared to last month, I drank less. (62 sodas last month) I guess I did improve on something. Kudos to me!

Back to my favorite drink of all, alcohol. Let’s break this down for you. Checking last month, I had 30 Bud Light beers. This month I had, 29. Lets check out the bud lights I had:

  • 25 of those were bottles. My friend and I decided that the 5th beer I drank on, 2/9 was gay. I don’t know how a beer can be gay but it is. That is a long story to explain why we said it. I take many notes about the food and drinks I consume.
  • 2 were Bud Light cans. I am not a fan of the can. I’ll drink it from tap and I’ll drink it from a bottle. I just cannot get to liking the taste from a can. It still has that metal taste. Remind me to tell you an event that happened this night.
  • The last 2 beers I had this month, were from “54 Street” They were both the tall beers. Compared to last months 11, I am slacking. It would be more but I haven’t visited it as often as I like to. I need to get back to doing that. Maybe this weekend. Text me to remind me, please.

Ending off my alcoholic intake for this month was my lack of Rum drinking. Last month I had 36, this month I had only,

  • 8 shots of Captain Morgan Rum. 2 of those shots were for, Matt. He asked and I said okay. They were nightcaps. They did the job. I sleep like a baby.

Aside from all the crap I drink above, I do drink juice. Sure the juices are full of sugar but they still have to be better than all the soda and alcohol I drink. Breaking  down the 18 juices I drank for you, yo:

  • 2 juices were Orange Juices from Bob Evans.
  • 1 of the 18 juices was a Capri Sun. The flavor of the said juice was, Fruit Dive
  • I had a total of 15 minute maid juices.I will say this. I am in love with this juice.

    Minute Maid Orange Juice

    • 1 orange juice
    • 5 cranberry apple raspberry juice
    • 9 cranberry grape juice

Finishing off my list,

  • 1 big ass cup of lemonade from Chic-Fil-A
  • 1 taste test of, sweetened black iced tea (4 oz.)
  • 1 mug of homemade Hot Chocolate
  • 1 glass of 2% white milk (Belfonte)

I don’t see much of a difference in what I drank. Do I think I will ever cut back on coffee? (I’ve already had two so far this month) Will I tone down on the alcohol I drink? Will I drink more water? Only time will tell. There is still ten months left this year. Within the next few days, I will post the food stats.
