As some of you may know I just completed my last week of college for the semester, and I’m on cloud 9! I am sad that it’s over for 6 months, because I really did open up and learn a ton of things. On the other hand the excitement I have for my life this summer is through the roof! I have some new goals to announce for April, which will help me kick the summer off right. First though I should touch on my weight loss.
I had a pretty solid week and was coming into Thursday at a significant loss. However with 95% of my school being completed, I went out with the boys. 6 pints a steak sandwich and half a pizza later I was pretty sure that I failed this week. It could have been even worse too but I declined to come into McDonalds at 1AM. To my surprise I didn’t retain all of the weight and still posted a decent loss at 288.4 or -1.2 pounds. I expect some of that to be lack of water from the night out drinking but I think I will make up for it this week.
On to the April goals! There are 2 main things that I want to do health wise this month. In poker I have some pretty solid goals set for volume so I think I will be motivated on that front. Health wise I cant say the same. I’m hoping to inject some excitement back into the process. The first goal is sleep schedule. Ever since I started to play poker full time, my sleep schedule has been all over the place. I can stick to normalcy for a week or so, but that one night where I can’t sleep messes everything up. I usually am watching some sort of TV show on my laptop till 6 in the morning, and all of a sudden I become tired. I sleep till 2pm and thus the vicious cycle begins. Well I hate that part of my life, and I love to work in the mornings, so here is the goal for April. Wake up at 7AM 30 days in a row!
There is more to this goal though. I really want to dedicate myself to losing weight, and giving the 100-pound goal a real shot. Well the best time to start is now so I am going to walk 30 days in a row at 7AM. I plan to keep solid records to keep it fun, and really start to get in shape. These 2 goals are going to be mentally strenuous. I am going to have to stay healthy and get good sleep to complete them, however I know I can do it. Its going to be the best summer ever! Thanks for reading guys.
