May 29, 2012
Wow it seems like its been forever. SCOOP was ages ago! Its time to look back on the disappointment that was May.
May was pretty much a fail all around. I didn’t exercise, put in volume, or bink! Throw in a failed live trip, and this past month is one to forget. However, always an optimist, things are looking good for the future. After completely falling off the diet bandwagon, I’m ready to get back on, and rejuvenate the process starting June 1st. DC member Anders has given me the proper plan to take a shot at this thing, and I should take it. I am changing my primary goal from 100 lost this year, to 40 lost by September first. This is what I am going to really strive for, and the year long goal is now viewed as a bonus. Lots of raw veggies are coming my way, but I’m ready for the change.
Poker wise things are changing as well. In my current state, 10k games is not going to be possible. The upswing I have experienced is from cutting tables. I haven’t played 9 tables for at least a year, and it kind of sucks knowing all the tournaments I have to pass on. That being said, I am now running 20/17, as opposed to 13/11. That is likely a sign that dropping 3tables was the right decision. As I look back, my success has been mirrored by my weight. Losing money while gaining weight, and winning money while losing weight. Maybe my cognitive ability in relation to health is more important then I thought. I will continue to track how many games I have played, but I have all but given up on 10k.
Last couple things to expect from me this month:
Staking: Games are really good right now with the WSOP on. I expect to try and make headway on my staking goal, and buy a bunch of action.
Math Attacks: That’s right! The epic 30 episode series is going to be tackled by this guy right here. A major undertaking, but will result in a better technical understanding.
Thanks for reading guys.
