OK, so technically summer isn't here just yet, or for another one month and, like, twelve days. Regardless of this inane technicality it was mid nineties all weekend so I am making the call, it's (unofficially) summer. Not to be confused with the ancient region in southwestern Asia Sumer. The area that is now present-day Iraq, comprising the southern part of Mesopotamia. Formerly ancient Babylonia in the 4th millennium bc. Sorry, very random sidetrack on my part. I've been in this sort of teaching random facts mood all weekend. Regardless...
So now that I've pulled the trigger, prematurely, and official made the call for summer a few things have changed. One is my goal. I want to lose twenty-five pounds by summers end. That has not changed the part that has changed and the reason are interesting, first the reason. So I was on the way out for some swimming when I saw something that got me thinking. There were two guys out riding, at first I thought, "man I should've rode the bike today instead." Shortly after the brilliant deduction I realized the first guy had no shirt on. I said to the wife, "OK, so the plan has changed. I want to be fit enough by the end of summer to be able to rock a ride bare-chested." At any rate, that's the new goal. Not only to lose the twenty-five but be tight enough I can roll shirtless. There it's been said, and now that I'm pretty well screwed I guess I have to stick to it.
Now that we got that out of the way, let me take a minute to explain one of the key things in life that will thoroughly screw my weight-loss up. You see with summer come the most perfect thing ever invented. That's right folks, barbecue. One of the greatest parts about summer. I love to eat, but moreover, I love to cook barbecue. This was Sunday nights dinner and by the way, leave the corn in the husk and throw those on the top shelf of the grill for about thirty minutes, freakin' awesome. Anyway, it's going to be an interesting summer. What are your plans?
