August 5 – In Motion

Comments off 484 Views0


I have been super busy lately. I have been going to the gym just about every other day (1hr of lifting, and about 15min of cardio), and got my first gym membership in about 2yrs. I am actually starting to get some definition back, and oddly enough have already lost about 8lbs. Due to changing my diet (cutting about 800cal/day out), increasing my light-range cardio (1-2 disc golf games/day), and gym, it makes sense. I don’t really even care about my weight…just care about how I look and feel. I am excited to see how things look after a month or so.

I’ve also been going out more. Went out last night and met up with a student. Neither of us were that hungry so we just played 200NL and talked the whole time. Was oddly enough very relaxing, lol. Ended up making a few bucks and making this older guy angry as shit. The hand was simple. Guy who kept limp/folding limped from the HJ, I blind iso’d to $11, the BB calls and we go HU to an Ah 6h 3d board. He checks, I CB for $11 (still blind), he stall calls. The turn comes an 8c, he checks. I check my cards and am oddly confused to see Ad6d. So I fire out for $28, he calls. River is a 5s and he check/calls a $47 bet. He lift-tilt punches the table and steams off. I was very confused, but it was nice to actually win a pot.

After that I bounced over to a comedy club with Kuge and Josh. Was interesting to say the least. I am beginning to see how stand up works, and am pretty sure that I could manufacture a good routine if I put some time into it. I just understand how the timing works (and doesn’t), what topics work (and which don’t), etc. Who knows…maybe if I get a free bit of time I will see if I could build a winning stand up routine =P

Past that, life is good. The book is coming along (although the VB chapter just keeps groooowing and grooooooowing). I won’t even say I have a goal for it (I do, but I won’t tell you), because I’ve missed my last 9 goals on when I’d like it to be done, lol. In time. Past that, the Planning video seems to be getting a lot of views, and people seem to be liking it. So hopefully some of yall have gotten something out of it other than “I don’t want to fold AK preflop” =) And on that note, im off to sleep. hope all is well!
