Stick's Quest for Fitness: End Month 9

07/20/09 = 243 lbs(start) 30.8 BMI
08/20/09 = 235 lbs. (-8) 29.8 BMI
09/20/09 = 231 lbs. (-4) 29.3
10/20/09 = 223 lbs. (-8) 28.2
11/20/09 = 222 lbs. (-1) 28.1
12/20/09 = 222 lbs. (-0) 28.1
01/20/10 = 222 lbs. (-0) 28.1 BMI, 20.3% Body Fat
02/20/10 = 222 lbs. (-0) 28.1 BMI, 20.6% BF
03/20/10 = 223 lbs. (+1) 28.3 BMI, 21.0% BF
04/21/10 = 223 lbs. (-0) 28.3 BMI, 20.2% BF

No weight loss, but I see decent sized body fat percentage loss. I took 3 consecutive readings and 20.2% looks correct. I have noticed my arms are looking more defined and I my old 36" waist pants fit again. Woo hoo!! I'm booked for Vegas in June, so I should be in good shape for the walking in the heat that will be needed.

Still not as disciplined as I would like to be in regards to my eating, but I don't think I'm that far off. Just a few tweaks needed. 199 lbs. is still the goal.

Stick's April 2010 Mid-Month Poker Status

Grinding $5 STTs, 2TTs, & 3TTs. Hanging around even at mid-month. Made some mistakes and took some bad beats, but I think I'm playing well overall. Still learning every day. Every donk I come across seems to pose new challenges. Gotta remember that they don't fold underpairs. :)

Stick's March 2010 Poker Results

The month started bad, ended good, and my tourney results ended near even. But some bad cash game results while chasing some bonuses caused me to end down -$58 overall.

Right now, I can see exactly what is wrong with my cash stats (too passive preflop, too aggro post), but I really didn't get into analyzing that during the month. I really concentrated on my SNG's and I think it really paid off in the fact that I made a comeback from some early-month losses.

I'm still feeling good about my SNG game and have fixed some leaks along the way. I hope to step up to $10 STT's this month on Stars and stay with $5 2TT's on Full Tilt.

I also won the MVP Award in the 2010 Winter Team Poker League. Our team didn't go too far, but I am proud of my individual achievement since I haven't won much like this before in Poker. I played 9 out of the 40 league games while representing my team and averaged nearly a 2nd place finish in them. Sure, some luck helped. But having the best average score while playing the most games of any player in the league on any team (meaning more chances to screw up) takes at least a bit of skill also IMO. So I'm satisfied.

The prize for MVP was a $40 poker book, so I'll looking forward to adding that to my collection.
