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. I feel bad for not keeping on top of this like I have down all year. But I am happy that I have kept this up. The year is about over and I still have logged everything I’ve ate and drank for the past 10 months. Impressive? I believe so. Let’s end this babbling and get to the reason behind this post.

    I hate writing these up. I always feel bad after I do. I keep saying I should eat healthier or maybe try to actually eat at home. I tend to eat the same shit every month. Why not I take the stand now. I mean, I am already half way through the year. Maybe it is time for me to get cracking on cooking at home again. But I said it before, it sucks cooking for one person. How much do I make? I am not too fond of left overs. I like fresh food.  Since this is the 6 month mark, here are the links to all the months before. You can look it over if you like. I’ll do my best to get the stats up next week. It shouldn’t be too hard. Just a lot of note taking.

    There you have it, folks! Month two of what I have ate this year. Oh, the asterisk by “Goulash” is there for a reason. My mother likes to call it, Hamburger Italianio. We’ll call it goulash and she gets upset. It’s the same thing! I am hoping to post another ‘chef john’ video soon. I was quite surprised to see so many videos of people making beef lo mein. Some questions for you,

    1. What should I tone down on eating?
    2. What other places do you recommend?
    3. Should I watch what I eat?
    4. Should I watch what I drink?
    5. Cut back on coffee?
    6. Cut back on soda?
