I wanna finish what I started and that's to get down to 250lbs. A lot of crap has been going on lately and its stressing me out. I'm tired of people treating me like crap, im tired of being unappreciated. Im tired of keeping my mouth shut. At times I just feel like that life just out right sucks and I really have no purpose in life. Im trying to just give everything to God and let him take control but at times...It gets to me..Im just tired... <BR> <BR> Can... Sun, 29 Dec 2013 19:56:27 EST Going after a dream http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5472875 Well, i've actually been working lately. My buddy hired me on for a few jobs painting houses. Also, ive been working at church a lot as an assistant handy man. So, ive been working my butt off and also gaining weight! And thats going to stop! I've also decided to try to go after a dream of mine and thats to become a photographer. I mean like professional! I bought myself a fancy dsrl camera and enrolled in a class at LSU that starts next week. I hope to be able to get the hang of the thing..... Sun, 1 Sep 2013 19:36:03 EST Its been a hell of a week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5352943 Monday started off great but as the day went on the worse I felt! Monday night I ended up in the hospital with a 102 temp and as my mom said "You were talking out your head". I didnt get to live the E.R. Until tuesday morning at 5am. I ended up having a urinary tract infection. So tuesday and wednesday I just ended up staying in the house all day. Wednesday night my friend sent me a text offering me a job helping him paint a house for $600. That was too much money to pass up! Thursday I pain... Sat, 11 May 2013 09:56:56 EST Hey, you're VERY fat! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5345471 So today has been kind of a sucky day. To start it off I let my chickens into the yard so they can do their thing. I walked out the house to check on them when I see a dog running out my yard with one of my chickens in his mouth. The dog looks back at me and drops my chicken. I run to see if she is dead. By the time I get to her she was able to get under my car. At first I thought she was missing a leg. Honestly, I wanted to cry. I have become very attached to them. I even refer to them as my... Sat, 4 May 2013 17:02:24 EST Long day...Long week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5342297 Its been one of those weeks..Yesterday my mom's car broke down. So I spent yesterday fixing it. I didnt get my work out in like I wanted. After the car was fixed , I decided to cut grass. Well I started to pull the cord and it broke. Now there is rumors going around in church that they are going to close the church's school. So thats going to put my mom and 5 other women out of work. Please my best friend will have to move back to Ohio because of all this crap. The weird thing about it is tha... Wed, 1 May 2013 17:48:18 EST Seeing results http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5338108 So I was checking myself out in the mirror after taking a shower. I noticed that my arms arent as fat as they use to be. My legs are getting a little toned and my tummy is getting smaller. As of friday i'm done to 318lbs. My goal for this year is to get down to 250lbs. I'm stronger then I have ever been. I enjoy working in the yard and helping other people do odd jobs. OH! Something amazing happened the other day! I was eating out with some friends at a Chinese buffet. Anyway, they got up to... Sun, 28 Apr 2013 10:17:59 EST Went out last night http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5336483 I went out last night and im paying for it today..I've had a headache all dang day and I just feel bluh! I made myself workout today. I did my normal routine. I walked 3 miles and then hit the gym. I've started taking a protein shake to the gym. It was very nasty at first but its starting to taste better. The flavor is peanut butter, it doesn't taste like any peanut butter I have ever had..lol..Anyway, im lifting heavier weight which im excited about. I've started a little game at the gym. W... Fri, 26 Apr 2013 14:48:39 EST Looking back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5333287 Yesterday I had a flashback, It was kind of weird. This all happened while working on my chicken coop. I climbed in a 3 ft wide area to hammer some loose fence wire, I looked up and realized the top wire was a little loose also. So I climbed out of the coop, pretty much took it all apart, fixed what I wanted fixed and then put it back together. After finishing I was like DAMN, I use to never be able to do stuff like this! Also yesterday I walked 2 miles, helped a friend move a truck load of d... Tue, 23 Apr 2013 18:48:34 EST I dont think he believed me! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5328665 While I was at the gym today. A guy that I see all the time there but never spoken to talked to me. He said "Hey, I seen you at the heart walk Saturday, did you finish it?" I told him yea, he gave me a weird look and then he walked off. I'm guessing he didn't believe me. Its no big deal but it did hit me weird. Because he doesn't see me doing cardio at the gym, I guess he assumes I dont do any at all. All those haters can kiss my butt..lol.. <BR> <BR> I lost a total of 2lbs this week! I'm p... Fri, 19 Apr 2013 11:48:05 EST Down 21lbs this year! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5326336 I'm sweaty! Very sweaty! lol..I think my underwear is even soaked. Im sure you didnt want to know about my underwear but I worked my butt off this morning. I walked/jogged 3 miles this morning. Then I hit the gym for an hour, only 10 mins of my gym time was spent on cardio. I sort of made a new friend at the gym. He's an 70 year old man that in damn good shape! He works out 6 days a week. The only thing I dont like about him is that he calls me baby. Make me feel a little weird..lol..Other th... Wed, 17 Apr 2013 11:16:59 EST Sort of offended at 5k http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5323912 Saturday was the Heart Walk. Its one of my favorite 5ks because of all the free crap they give away. Well this year the Heart Walk was sponsored by jenny craig. I walked past a Jenny Craig booth that had 30 women waiting in line signing up for info..etc. Well out of the blue a Jenny Craig representative started to yell at me to get my attention. She told me to come talk to her, so I was like sure. She asked me if I ever thought of going on their program. I told her no because I cant afford ... Mon, 15 Apr 2013 11:23:24 EST I stepped on a snake yesterday while I was barefoot. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5319569 Lately, life has been pretty busy! My grandma was put in the hospital for a few days but she is ok. She overdosed on her meds. It didnt cause the doctor to be majorly worried. He just took her off them and let it get out of her body. Once that happened she was 100% again. <BR> <BR> I'm still working out and eating ok..I need to push myself more on the working out part. I'm going to change things up a little more. Normally I go to the track, then to the gym for more cordio and then weights. ... Thu, 11 Apr 2013 11:25:31 EST I'm horrible at Tennis but for some reason I enjoy it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5300746 Last year I decided that I wanted to try tennis. I played it a few times and really enjoyed it! My Tennis buddy then moved up north. So I stopped playing. I was able to play with a friend yesterday and still really enjoyed it. I have another friend coming down for the summer and she is telling me that we are going to start playing. I hope so! It would get me out the house and get in a good workout. According the spark, you can burn 500 calories in 30 minutes! Yesterday while I was playing I ... Tue, 26 Mar 2013 12:08:45 EST I think I have a Bully http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5293777 There is a lady that goes to the same church that I go too. Well she doesn't like me and she has made that known to many people at church. My Mom works at a school that's ran by our church. The woman that dislikes me is now on the school board. The reason why the lady doesn't like me is because I had a little run in with her kids a few months ago. Her youngest told me to go screw myself, I told the little boy that he cant talk to me that way and then i went to inform his mom about what he sai... Wed, 20 Mar 2013 13:50:14 EST Gym opps http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5287607 The gym I go to have these big sanitizer spray bottles. You can either spray a paper towel with them or just take the bottle to the machine you just used and spray the sucker down. I like using the spray down the paper towel method. Well today I took the bottle down from the hook, sprayed down my paper towel and when I was about the put the bottle back on the hook the big bottle came unhooked from the sprayer and hit the ground. No big deal. I bent over and put the thing back together and put... Fri, 15 Mar 2013 10:50:59 EST I ran on a 4.0 today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5282501 Ive been skipping out on the track lately because ive gotten bored with it. So lately i've been hitting the treadmill pretty hard. I use to hate the machine but im starting to like it a wee bit. I started to push myself on it lately and well today I ran on a 4.0 for 2 minutes 3 times. I finished 2 miles in 39 minutes and 05 seconds. I'm pretty excited! This week im just going to continue to do what i've been doing and next week im going to increase my distance a bit. My short term goal is to... Mon, 11 Mar 2013 12:21:53 EST Doing better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5278728 I've been skipping out on the track lately and just hitting the gym. I'm pushing myself a lot more on the treadmill. My short term goal is to finish 3 miles in 60 minutes. So the last few days ive been setting the treadmill for 50 mins to see how far I can get. Yesterday I walked/jogged 2.13 miles in 50 minutes. Today I jogged a bit more and was able to go 2.25 miles. I have a lot more room to improve. The first 5 minutes something caught my eye on tv and didnt pay attention. I didnt run or w... Fri, 8 Mar 2013 10:50:52 EST I'M A DADDY! To 3 baby chicks..lol http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5277300 The other day I was in tractor supply looking around when I noticed baby chicks. I was tempted to buy some but there was a limit of 6 or more. I know NOTHING about raising chickens. So I thought 6 would be too many to start with. So I posted something on facebook about wanting some but not many. A guy I know then sent me a message saying that he was going to buy some and to let him know how many I wanted. I told him 3. Anyway, this conversation was over a week ago. I figured it was forgotten ... Thu, 7 Mar 2013 11:11:49 EST I have no idea what my problem is http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5272587 I just cant get it in gear today. I woke up this morning ready to start the day. I get on the track and my energy level just bottoms out. I made myself walk and then hit the gym. I feel like I got a good work out in but I just wish the motivation would have been there. I'm at the lowest weight ive been at in over a year. You would think that would be motivating me but its not! <BR> <BR> I'm glad that the time is about the change. I talked to a friend of mine about playing tennis once a wee... Mon, 4 Mar 2013 11:19:24 EST I messed up dinner http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5264872 I found a kick butt recipe on a cross fit website for pork loin. Its pretty simple, you put cuts in the loin to make little pockets. You stuff slices of apple and honey in the little pockets. You put the loin in a crock pot on low and then cover the loin with Apple slices and Cinnamon. Then you let it cook all day long. Well I did everything but put the crock pot on low. I ended up putting it in high, well the meat is already shredding. So im just going to let it cook a little long and turn i... Tue, 26 Feb 2013 15:04:03 EST Im sick :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5257260 Well I caught whatever my mom had! Im skipping my workouts today. I thought it would be better for me to stay out of the cold and just take care of myself instead of making things worse. I did go to the track today and did one lap. I just didnt have the energy to go for long, so I went to walmart got some OJ and came home. Wed, 20 Feb 2013 09:35:29 EST HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5250509 I hope that all of you are having a very happy valentines day! My day is going pretty well. I gave my mom some sugar free chocolate and a mini rose bush for VDay! I know, im a great Son! lol..Anyway, I gave it to her this morning and she told me that she didnt get me anything. I told her not too and then she said Noooo..I got to get you something. I told her she could give me $5 so I could get myself a subway sandwich! And that is what she did! She would have stopped at a store to get some ca... Thu, 14 Feb 2013 14:24:38 EST I'm the FASTEST man ALIVE!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5249048 Ok, I'm far from being the fastest man alive but I am faster then the people sitting on their couch! LOL..The other day I took a fitness mile test on a treadmill. I've always been kind of shy about running in front of people. I dont like it when people point out that im trying to run. I guess its self esteem issue type deal. Anyway, I started to take the Mile fitness test, I started to crank it up to a 3.0. If I went any faster I would have to start to run. Well I said the hell with it and st... Wed, 13 Feb 2013 12:06:04 EST Back at it http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5236977 Well my leg is feeling better because of my awesome doctor! I went back to the track today but I only walked 1 mile. I didnt want to over do it, I guess what I was doing was stretching out my achilles tendon to see how it felt. It pulled a little bit but no where as bad. I took it easy on the treadmill at the gym too. I'm just going to ease back into it this week and then focus on miles next week if all is well. No reason for me to get in a rush and re-injure myself. <BR> <BR> Something ha... Mon, 4 Feb 2013 10:49:18 EST I lost 10 pounds and the doctor says I need new shoes! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5232068 I have lost 10 lbs since the last time I visited the doctor! I am very HAPPY! I have 77 lbs to go and I will lose that weight! <BR> <BR> Anyway, ive been having some leg issues and feet issues lately. The doctor starts checking out my feet and says that im big time flat footed and I need to get a pair of shoes fitted for me only to work out in. If I dont, I will keep having the muscle pulls and feet issues. She told me I cant go back on the track until next week and she gave me some meds to ... Thu, 31 Jan 2013 17:36:19 EST Going to the doctor tomorrow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5230650 Lately i've been having an issue with my foot. I was kind of wondering if I should go see the doctor or not. Well my foot is no longer an issue because I pulled something in my other leg last week. Ive been taking it easy because of the leg. So my foot stopped hurting but my muscle pull just wont go away. I've been keeping it on ice and only riding a stationary bike, not much walking. Well last night I went to Zippy's with my nephew and right when I got to the door my leg kind of went from un... Wed, 30 Jan 2013 18:33:38 EST I hate having injuries http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5226882 I tried to stay off my leg all weekend even though I did go to a Mardi Gras parade. I kept ice of my injury, its feeling a little better. I tried to work out a little this morning. I rode a stationary bike for 45 mins and then I hit the treadmill for 15 mins for a VERY light workout. Im about to ice my leg down, and later this afternoon I will go to the gym again for a light workout. Even though im hurt I dont want to get out of the habit of going to the gym. I want to hit 250lbs this year an... Mon, 28 Jan 2013 10:17:22 EST Foot Pain http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5222591 Lately ive been having pain on the top side of my right foot. I use to be able to ignore it but now its getting to the point where it hurts all the time. I'm going to make an appointment next week to see my doctor. I'm kind of worried I have a fracture and will be sidelined while it heals. I haven't weighted in a week or so but I know ive lost some weight. My new shorts aren't as snug as they were when I bought then at the start of this month. So I'm going to be upset if my foot gets in the w... Fri, 25 Jan 2013 06:58:53 EST new places to walk http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5217080 I'm getting bored of the hospital walking track. It only took 4 years..lol..I enjoy talking to my track family but its getting old. I see the same people over and over, talk about the same things and well the track it just boring. I found a list of parks in the baton rouge area that has walking tracks, I think im going to give them a try. I'm feeling motivated today, I feel great except for my back. I messed it up some how when I sat down. It sucks getting old..lol.. <BR> <BR> My wednesday ... Mon, 21 Jan 2013 12:57:43 EST she killed herself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5215306 Last year my friends cousin was living with him. She was a pretty cool lady. I enjoyed talking to her, joking with her, we liked picking on Chris A LOT! Lol she did have a lot of problems though. She had family issues and mental issues. She stayed drugged up on sleeping pills a lot. So she slept A LOT! Anyway, she moved back with her mom and dad. Well last night Chris called me to tell me she killed herself. He still doesn't know any details. All he knows is that Ashley's dad found her in he... Sun, 20 Jan 2013 09:27:50 EST Soooooo http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5214260 So, im back at it! I'm going back to what I know works. I've started to walk 5+ miles a day. This week I've only went to the gym for cardio but next week I will get back into weights. This week I only focused on mileage and eating right. Also, I decided to stop weighing myself weekly, lately its hurting me more then helping. When I dont see a change I get upset and then eat. Im just going to focus on how I feel and I think that's what is more important, right? So, i'm going to weigh at the... Sat, 19 Jan 2013 12:13:28 EST 3.6 miles http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5186128 I didnt feel all that great yesterday. I had little aches and pains. Today I woke up feeling pretty dang good. I went to the track this morning and no one was on it. I was shocked! Normally the track enjoys a increase of people walking at the start of the year but not this year! Anyway, I walked/ran on the track. It felt really good! All my shorts are holding me back. I dont have any draw strings on them so they kind of slide down. I always have to slow down to grab them, im going to have to... Wed, 2 Jan 2013 12:39:14 EST Glad 2012 is over! Welcome 2013! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5183982 New Year Eve of 2011 I opened my mouth and said that 2012 was going to be a great year for my family. Well I was banned from saying that 2013 was going to be a great year by my family..lol..A lot happened last year, the city came down on a old house that my dad owned, I spent most of the year cleaning that out, I started a huge fight because I opened my mouth, my sister-in-law passed away, had a lot of house repairs to do, car repairs..etc. I was also diagnosed with Low T, and Acid reflux. T... Tue, 1 Jan 2013 13:44:08 EST Low T and Drama! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5061772 Well, im still dealing with Low T. I love the shot! It gives me more strength, energy, a positive outlook on life, I just feel great in general! I hope my doctor changes up my shot a little bit. I get the shot at the beginning of the month but the start of the 4th week, I crash big time! I never realized how bad I felt until I started taking the shot! One thing I dont like about the shot is that on the 2nd and 3rd week my nipples hurt pretty bad! <BR> <BR> On to the drama, my niece was marri... Sun, 16 Sep 2012 15:43:22 EST I have Low Testosterone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4986299 The last few weeks ive been feeling poorly, I then realized that my low blood sugar was acting up but it was a little more extreme this time around. The left side of my face went numb and i was getting dizzy. So I made an appointment with the doctor (she lost 50 lbs and is looks pretty hot). Anyway, I told her what was wrong and I told her I thought it was my low blood sugar, she agreed. But she still wanted to do some blood work just to check things out. I asked her while she was doing bloo...

Lets get the bad news out of the way. An employee at my church killed herself. She died on the day that all the employees at the church was suppose to get paid. Well the elders at the church wrote out the checks for the employees. No big deal, right? Well all the checks bounced! At this time we didnt know the person killed herself. Well when everyone reported to the elders that the checks bounced. They started to look into the financials of the church. We are s...

I can chest press 90 lbs now, lat pull down 70 lbs, leg press 290lbs. Im walking 3 miles in the morning and riding a stationary bike 2 to 3 miles. Ive cut my calories down to around 1600.

He has boxes stacked from the floor to the roof. After he passed away I just boarded the place up because I got tired of people breaking in to it and stealing or just destroying stuff.

I was a little bigger then him. Anyway, i've kept in touch with him off and on. Well I seen him yesterday and he has gotten so much bigger. His stomach is past his knees, I felt bad for the dude. He was talking about weight loss with me but you could just tell he really isnt interested. He said something about getting some kind of surgery done. In my head I was thinking dude do something and something soon..I know I gaine...

Lately my grandma has sort of been picking on me..Not as in hahaha but she is meaning to be mean. Today my nephew came over to borrow some money for his college tuition. He asked me to go see my grandma with him to see if he could get some money off of her. Well while my nephew was talking to her my cell phone rings to alert me about a text. My grandma makes some odd comment about there is no reason to check it because we all know...

Well I have an idea of what my deal is. Its the same thing that happened to me on my first go around with losing weight. I get very energetic and have nothing to do to burn it off. I went walking this morning, then had a HUGE crazing for a protein bar. So I stopped by wal-greens to pick up a few. Then I went to the gym, I came home and watched an esp of Burn Notice. The rest of the day I spent outside burning some old tree limbs and... Thu, 27 Oct 2011 19:44:59 EST Today has been one of those days!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4554445 Well, like the title says its been one of those days. I tried to go to the track and the gym this morning but when I go to my car, my back tire is flat. When I say flat I mean big time flat. I air the thing back up to see if it will hold air. It has yet to go down. So, i'm thinking someone came into the yard over night as a prank and let the air out. So instead of going to the track and to the gym. I just run my errands for the day to get back home as fast as I can. Since I didn't get my usua... Wed, 26 Oct 2011 14:58:52 EST Too dang cold http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4544588 I might be getting old or something but I cant take cold like I use too! When I was a kid I could go outside in the snow in shorts and a t-shirt. Now if the temp drops just a bit, i'm freezing my butt off! I walked the track yesterday in the cold in shorts and a tshirt but this morning its colder. So, im going to wait a bit so it will warm up before I go out. I did buy some long pants yesterday for walking purposes. During the summer I bought a short sleeved hoodie, i'm looking forward to try... Thu, 20 Oct 2011 09:01:32 EST Rocket just died http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4541915 It's amazing how you can get attached to a small little animal in such a short amount of time. He was doing great until today. Today he wouldnt move or eat. He just slept. A little while ago I tried to feed him, he did take a little bit of formula but then spit it out. Not too long after that he died. I'm going to miss him; for the short time that I have had him, he has brought a lot of joy into my life. I feel stupid for being as upset as I am but I loved the little thing. He's in a better p... Tue, 18 Oct 2011 15:50:56 EST Injuries suck! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4535275 Just when I was getting back into the grove of walking, hitting the gym, working in the yard....I injure my leg...A month a guy I hurt my back...I swear i'm falling apart! I lost 3lbs last week, so I was so excited about losing more weight this week..Yea ok..lol..I skipped working out yesterday, I wanted to give my leg some rest. I walked some this morning but not as far as I would have liked. So in the gym today I rode the stationary bike a little longer. Hopefully that will make up for what... Fri, 14 Oct 2011 11:27:31 EST Leg is hurting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4531922 Last night the back of my leg started to hurt. I think its a pulled muscle. But I did check for blood clots. Every time the back of my leg starts to hurt I think about my sister. She died from a blood clot so I get paranoid and have to check my leg if I have some kind of pain. I did try to walk this morning but only made it 3/4 of a mile. I think I could have went further but I decided to hit the gym and ride the stationary bike longer then normal. Normally I ride it for 20 mins but today I r... Wed, 12 Oct 2011 11:07:07 EST flying squirrel, toe shoes... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4524058 Good news first, the baby flying squirrel is still alive. He's drinking puppy milk out of a little puppy bottle. I'm going to have to post a picture for you all the see. It's sooo small! Sometimes it rolls itself into a little ball while sleeping, I think he could hit on a quarter with room to spare! I just hope he lives so I can release him into the wild. <BR> <BR> Well today was my first time wearing my Fila skele-toes 2.0 shoes. They are very different and will take a little time to get u...
