Food Log: The Results

Now, I didn’t log it all. I could but that will be a job I don’t want to take one. I did however, log and tally up some of the items I feel I indulged in more than anything. You’re welcome to go back to each month and add up what I ate or drank. I am very proud of myself for keeping at this project. There were a few people who assumed I would give up after a few months. Others said six months. But I showed them. I did it every day. I logged 365 days of food and drinks.

Do I think I will ever change my eating habits? No. I doubt I will. I mean, I do look at some of that stats and get bothered by the amount of soda or alcohol I drank. It’s a high number. I am sure there are other people who drink far more than I do. I am not saying I drink more than you or more than Bill W. I just looked at the three digit number and was a little sick to my stomach. But what do I do? I sit here and nurse a beer. It’ll never end. I will never change my eating habits. I snack too much. I drink too much. Maybe when I resemble a beached whale, I’ll cut back and then start watching what I eat. But while I have this great metabolism, I will eat and drink whatever I want.

When this gets posted, It’ll be the new year. I will not continue this project. This was a one year thing. If anything, I’ll probably eat and drink close to the same thing. It was a long and difficult job to take on. I am happy that I did it. I cannot give you a real purpose as to why I did it but that I was curious about what I eat and how much I eat of it. Below is a chart of some of the drinks and food I ate throughout the year.


Thank you for reading. Happy New Year!

December Stats – Part II: Food

Like previous mentioned, this is the last entry to what I ate during the year of 2010. Even thinking that maybe I was going to eat better the last month, I didn’t. I ate the same crap. The only thing that is different is I didn’t get very much fast food. I guess I was watching my weight. Not that my weight is a problem. I’ll never have a problem with my weight. I am blessed. Women are jealous. Yeah, suck one.

Let’s take a look at the food I consumed during the month of December.

Cookies:

I had a total of 34 cookies this month. It’s Christmas. Someone is always baking cookies and treats around this time. I do love me some cookies. To break it down more,

  • 12 of these were M&M cookies.
  • 3 of these were Peanut Blossoms.
  • 1 was a gingerbread cookie.
  • 2 were sugar cookies.
  • 2 were peanut butter cookies.
  • 10 were chocolate chip cookies.
  • 4 were snickerdoodles.

Other Random Sugary Goodness:

Normally I would have a section just for donuts but for some odd reason, I only ate 1 donut. With that being an odd happening, I am grouping all the goodies I ate throughout the month in one section. It’s nothing shocking. It’s just easier to do this than separate them in all different sections.

  • 1 Chocolate Cup Cake.
  • 1 Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
  • 1 Maple Cinnamon Roll.
  • 1 Handful of Chocolate Covered Raisins.
  • 2 Single Chocolate Covered Fruits (package just said fruit…nothing specific)
  • 6 Peanut Butter Jam Bars.
  • 2 Peanut Butter Balls.
  • 2 Swiss Chocolate Candies.
  • 1 Cinnamon Raisin Bagel.
  • 2 Fruit Bars.
    • 1 Blueberry flavored.
    • 1 Strawberry flavored.
  • 2 Fun Size Bags of Skittles.
  • 1 Butterfinger.
  • 2 Hostess Cherry Pies.
  • 1 Caramello Candy Bar.

Dining Out:

While I didn’t dine out very much this month, I still did it. I am a single guy. I live alone. You try cooking for one person. It’s damn near impossible. When I do cook, I have so much left over, I am eating it for days. This is probably why I don’t cook much at home. I know I complain that I cook all day at work but it’s really the fact of trying to cook for one person. I am not cool with left overs. I like to cook something fresh.¬† Oh, well. To the list.

  • I had a total of 8 Pizza Street pizza slices during 2 visits. Breaking it down…
    • 3 slices of alfredo pizza.
    • 2 slices of pepperoni pizza.
    • 1 slice of canadian bacon and pineapple pizza.

    • breadstick.

This is the list of things I ate at home. Cooking at home is a tough job. If I was married (HA), it wouldn’t be such a challenge. But being only me, it’s a tough task to manage. You’ll notice that some items I ate are quite high. Leftovers, baby. Lots of leftovers.

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!

November Stats – Part II: Food

I am just knocking these out. I should have kept up with them in a more timely manner but I slacked on it. Let’s jump right into the facts and be amazed at everything I ate during the month of November. From Thanksgiving dinner to the leftover Halloween candy.

Donuts:

In the month of October, I had a total of 12 donuts. While I do love a nice donut in the morning, I only had 10. Only two less than the previous month. Donuts and cookies are my crack. I do love a good donut in the morning.

  • 3 were M&M Cookies.
  • 4 were Peanut Butter Cookies.
  • 12 were Chocolate Chip Cookies.
    • 9 were at work.
    • 3 were ate at my friends house.

Halloween Candy:

Since I really had no kids come by knocking on my door for candy, I was stuck with a bowl full of goodies all to myself. I always make sure when I buy candy for Halloween, it’s candy I’ll eat. If I am getting stuck with it, I want to be sure I’ll eat it. Can’t let this stuff go to waste. I had a grand total of 58 pieces of candy. I should see a dentist.

You’ll see that I made no attempt at cooking at home. I said it once and I will say it again. I cook all day at work. I don’t want to go home and cook again. You think porn stars go home after a long day at work and want to jump in the sack? I don’t think so.

November Stats – Part I: Drinks

Its November. It’s the month of being thankful for things. What am I thankful for? Beer and coffee. I am thankful for those things. I am also thankful for the logging I have done with the food and drinks I have consumed this year. It is something I am proud of. I am very excited about tally up a number of things and seeing exactly what I ate and drank. Some questions I have,

  1. How many beers did I have?
  2. How much coffee did I drink?
  3. How many times did I go to McDonald’s, Burger King, Popeye’s?
  4. How many servings of mashed potatoes did I eat?
  5. Donuts?
  6. Cookies?

That is just some. I am working and have a few months tallied up. I will not go through every item I ate and drank but I will log and show you the items I know I excessively eat and drink. I got one more month left. Hell, I have just two more nights before this year is up. I know this log is flawed. I know I didn’t capture everything I ate. I am sure there are some things I might have missed. But to look back and see it, I did a fantastic job. I can go and say that the log is 99% accurate. That is how sure I am with the crap I ate. Tomorrow is going to be the final day. I am hoping to be up at midnight, well at least somewhat sober at the time to post the final log for the year. To post the last of the ’2010 food and drink log’. Too bad I can’t get famous for this. That’ll be awesome. Okay. Let’s get to the facts. Here are the results for the month of November. Here is everything I drank during the month of the Turkey.


Coffee:

This was a slow month for me and coffee. Normally, I drank over 60. This month I had 54. Let’s see how it all breaks down.

  • 7 of those coffees were from Quiktrip. I remember going here more than normal. It’s not the worlds greatest coffee but like I said before, coffee is coffee.
  • 23 of these were Caribou coffees.
    • 22 were small cups.
    • 1 was a larger cup. I have a thing against drinking from the larger cups at work. I like the smaller cups.
  • 4 were Starbucks. I have really cut back on the Starbucks trek. I can recall when I would go here everyday. I am not upset. I can honestly say, I prefer Caribou over Starbucks.
    • 3 were the large sizes. I like the large size Starbucks. I hate the small size. Funny how it’s reversed with coffee companies.
    • 1 was a small size. It was bought by a friend. Beggars can’t be choosers. Free coffee is just that. Free.
  • 9 were had at Bob Evans. Still looks right. I usually have about 3 cups per visit.
  • 11 were had at home. They were all Folgers.

Soda:

This is just an essential item in my life. Maybe I drink too more soda. Maybe the amount of caffeine I have is the cause of my attacks. I could use this food log to see if I could change my habits next year. But thinking about it, I won’t. If I was aware all year of the amount of soda and coffee I drank so far and I haven’t cut back, I can be sure as hell I won’t do it next year. Aside from that, I had a total of 51 sodas. Oh, look! That was less than less month. I am doing great! Less coffee and less soda. I wonder what my beer will amount to!

45 of these were cokes. The cokes break down to,

  • 22 of these were had at work. Out of these,
    • 20 were 20 oz size styrofoam cups.
    • 2 were 10o oz size plastic cups.
  • 14 were cans of coke.
  • 2 were cokes in plastic cups had at our family’s Thanksgiving Dinner.
  • 3 were had at McDonald’s.
    • 2 were large sizes.
    • 1 was a medium size coke.
  • 3 were had at Chipotle
  • 1 was a large coke had at Burger King.

The remaining 6 were Pepsi.

  • 3 were had at Popeye’s.
  • 1 was had at Ming Garden.
  • 1 was had at Philly Time.
  • 1 was a can of Pepsi.

Alcohol:

Ah…my vice. The one thing that I sometimes drink far too much of. Not very wise but I am hoping for a low number. If last month I had 65, I hope I drank less. That will mean this could be the healthiest month of the year. I know next month (December) will not be the lowest month for my alcohol intake. Believe me. I’ve looked it up already. For the month of November, I had a total of 43. Holy live failure, Batman! That is low. I really didn’t drink much this month. I don’t know why. Maybe I worked too much. I don’t know. But this is low number. I’ll have to check my graph and see it is really is the lowest month for drinking alcohol.

  • The total for the month, 43, were all Bud Lights.
    • 40 were Bud Light Bottles.
    • 3 were tall mugs had at the local bar.

Etc…:

This is the rest of the stuff I drank during the month of November.

  • 20 8 oz tumbler size waters.
  • 9 chocolate milk pints.
  • 5 Orange Juices.
    • 3 were had at Bob Evans.
    • 2 were 16 oz size minute maid juices.
  • 1 Strawberry Kiwi Hi-C

The end of another month. I am getting closer to the final blog. The food log will be up soon. It could be tonight or tomorrow. It really depends if I go to a friends house for a drink or 8. Hang tight.
