I gained 3 pounds over the weekend.  I hate good pizza, I ate a half a pizza on Halloween (two slices before trick or treating and two slices when we got home from our friends house) and then drank several calorie dense craft beers and finished it off with helpings of candy and popcorn.  Will need to spend a little extra time at the gym and in the lap pool tonight.  Ha-ha.

That's a calorie intake of an athlete in training, and "burn" of a couch potato.   Reverse the graph and you will get there.

 

Thanksgiving & Christmas are coming.   ;-)

"The University of Missouri estimates that male athletes generally need more than 22.7 calories per pound of body weight each day, or more than 3,800 calories per day for a 170-pound man."

Lets say in between ;) 

Yep I plan on reducing it back to where I want it. It was only 4 days, so not a killer.

Mmmmm.... turkey...

Actually, it's not the turkey that is bad. It's the stuffing, potatoes, the casserole part of green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, etc.

    • I think he's just intense.  It's fun to watch and his desire to win will (most likely) never be questioned.   How many debates have there been on Golf Channel regarding a player's "killer instinct" or lack thereof?  DJ is probably a good example before he went on his tear as I remember a lot of chatter that he was too laid back...didn't have that burning desire to win.  Now that he's won a bunch, and is the same person (at least on the course), that laid back demeanor is viewed as "cool under pressure." As cliche as it is, winning cures all.
    • No argument there. If I had made the thread today (or anytime this year) he wouldn't have been in there. It's a shame with how good he is/can be at his best, but I think his health will keep holding him back.
    • A topic on something I haven't done any research but am intrigued on is the possibility of removing helmets from football.  Pads could be made smaller as well. It would (hopefully) take the head out of the equation as a weapon.  It would fully reduce the possibility of concussions since you'd still have guys hitting their heads on the turf and other things...but I think the extremely violent collisions would come way down. Again, I haven't fully thought this through but people have brought it up from time to time.  Something worth discussing.  I love the NFL too but hate to see what is happening to these guys and what may happen to the sport.
    • Yeah, I know one guy, and he's a very athletic 6'5".   Hitting any club 230-250 is long enough to get you into the mid-single digits assuming the rest of your game is decent.  But if all that's holding you back from another 50+ yards is learning to hit the driver, if you give that up, you're giving up on a lot more potential to ultimately play much better golf. Learn to hit it.
    • @bkuehn1952 beat me to it. This is essentially exactly what I was going to say (below) I'm not a golf pro. I'm just saying that my observation (take it for what it's worth) is that people try to muscle and over-hit the driver way more often than not. They get really tense over the ball and I can just see so much tension and rigidity in their swing. Then they hit it 200 yards. My driver swing is the most effortless swing I have in my bag. I'm not saying you have to play a driver. Hell, I've left my driver AND 3w at home, TWICE. But I did that just for fun to see how my game would change at my home course (mix it up a little). I didn't leave them behind "because I was afraid of them." Learn to hit it. Sometimes you have to break down your swing to nothing and start all over. We've all done it.
