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?
