I hope it all makes sense........

I promise you all that I try to blog on Sunday or Monday nights, and I don't know what happens!

Not much is going on, so this will be on of those "I hope it all makes sense" post today. Don't act like yall have never had one before.

Celebrity Fit Club Update:







So as you can see, I've trimmed off 8.6 pounds in just a weeks' time. And this was with little or no working out at all. I had to say that I was hyped up to see it. The main thing I did? Drank lots of water, and cut out fast food PERIOD. I feel like making a Super Size Me movie now, LOL. So the goal for this week is to get down to 215. This week I will attempt to get the cardios going. Its funny to me how people spend money for various ways of losing weight, Jenny Craig this, Dexatrim that (is that still even available? I just remember the commercials as a shorty), South Beach, Atkins, yet I can do it on my own just by cutting back on my favorite delights. Its been hard though, driving past and not getting an extra value meal. Or 3 items off of the 99 cents menu. Oh well...8.6 down, 21.2 to go.....





My cousin Smooth came into town for about 36 hours pretty much, so it really wasn't a kickin it session. His mom and our grandma was in a car accident last Wednesday, and he wanted to make sure that they were cool. They're going to be just fine, just a tad banged up. I hate to see my fav cuz under those circumstances, but its always great to see him. We didn't do much, we talked about going out on Saturday night but we went to Leona's in Hyde Park earlier and caught the itis after being out all day. Plus I had to take him to the airport early in the morn. But I have a family reunion (this time my mom's side of the family) this upcoming weekend that Smooth, Tiger, and others will be attending so we'll have time to kick it then.



One of my cousins, Jazz the beautician, sort of chided me for talking to a lot of women. I told her "well if you hook me up with your girl Nicole then I'll only be with her". I've been knowing Nicole since I was about 20, and was in love the first time I saw her. She's one of those model type looking chicks, light skin, very long black hair due to her pops being Dominican (she looks similar to Aaliyah) that be in the club all of the time and only dates guys with money. You know, ball players or slangers. But my cuz was saying that she's not on that anymore, she's older and mature. OK.




Me: Ok, well hook it up then

Jazz: Naw, she's still dealing with this guy right now. His name is Shawn.

Me: Shawn who?

Jazz: Shawn Marion

Yeah, that Shawn Marion, as in The Matrix Shawn Marion, 3 time all-star.............changed huh?






Oh, I almost forgot, I seen Ms. Stepper yesterday. I must've seen her through Moet-colored glasses (get it? LOL) that first night because when I seen her yesterday she didn't look as good as I first thought. Don't act like it's never happened to you either. I'll continue to talk to her, though. She drives an X3. Damn, I ain't no better than Nicole, huh? LOL. But I'm kidding. I did like her whip, though.




Looking back at this post, I actually did a good job today. I think it made sense. Right?



Thanks for Reading,
Robert Mack

@Zed: Listen at you, Knockout. Men aren't the only ones. Women on occasion catch male Strobelite Honies, too... LOL!

Anyway. Hello, RobMack. It's "Insanity." Don't be alarmed, LOL!

You are so brave to publish your scale number! Good job on the 8 lb. loss! I've drank more water than a thirsty camel, but I've managed to gain 2 and a half pounds. Experts say its normal for women to gain a few points before they actually lose any, and that may be true, but I don't want to hear that! In a month, I have to weigh myself and see what's up...

Probably nothing, knowing me!

But my best wishes because I believe we'll get there!

Its makes sense...
She changed???? How???

Liqour makes you see things that aren't really there...and thats why they have the clubs so dark, so you can't really tell....then once you see the person again, you see them in a whole new light....

Good going with the weight loss...about time you blogged, RobSLACK

8.6 lbs in one week? That's good!! Keep up the good work :-)

LOL @ "Moet Colored Glasses" mine are usually "Barcardi 151 with the Captain Morgan Tints"

I'm glad to hear your family members are ok....

@ Mack...Babe the wedding is not for another year and a half...I still got time for chocolate...LOL

No, I like them all colors. I just have a thing for yellow chicks.

Yeah, any kind of soda, especially sprite/7up/sierra mist...but I've been drinking nothing but water, an occasionally some Orange Drink (think like Hi-c)

I can date as many as I want, just not blogland huh?...lol...I would have agreed a few days ago..but now, I'm not so sure...

KZ
Yeah, she's not that bad but not quite how I remembered. But hey you don't turn down a "ride" because it has a few dents right? LOL....

JoJoD
Hey! I saw your name change. I guess I need to change your name in my blog roll huh.....yeah I aint ashamed, next monday if I balloon back up to 230 I'll show it as well....We'll make it, forgive me if you said this, but how much are you trying to lose and in what time period...I'm trying to shed 30 by Dec 31...which is funny seeing that I'm going to lose half of that in just 2 weeks.

Nsane
She aint changed, thats why my cuz aint never tried to hook me up with her.......I actually talked to Ms Stepper before the moet, and the club was not that dark but when I seen her yesterday in broad daylight I wanted to scratch my head..lol...But I was feeling the X3 though, LOL!!!
Remember babe I got 2 jobs mon (lol since I get called a jamaican) so I can blog like I want to...that being said I could do better....

Tenacious
Thanks, the fam is cool. They'll all be at the reunion...Im taking plenty of pics....8.6 pounds is lovely, imagine if I worked out too....I could have done 10 or so..

Hmm, dont play with me, I'll be trying to find out when you come back to Chicago..lol...I'll be in the Baltimore/DC area in 08...

1 in the same
Yeah I was a lil disappointed when I saw her..but the club I went to was a lot of old chicks, so she was the best at the time I guess...at least that's what I'm telling myself.

Hey RMACK - you're too good for that chick. She'll see the seedy side of pro-athletes and how they get down. I got stories about that. Maybe I'll write about it one day soon.

As for your celebrity fit club. I'm doing a get fir challenge myself. I have a goal to reach for my birthday in January. stick with it!!!!!!!

True story about the hookup and rich dudes: I was checking out this girl that was a friend of a friend. I was like hook me up with her. My friend wouldnt do it. Turns out she was f*cking with Easy E. The next week he was dead from AIDS. That was the best missed hookup ever.

Ok, i just read what i wrote and it don't have anything to do with your post, but I dont feel like deleting it. LOL

Good job on the 8lb, very brave on the publicity of the scale but i guess its more motivating to lose more than the gym. Over the past two weeks it has been a hard but steady time i have been on herbal tea and it REALLY works if you know what i mean.
Well done babe!
As far as the women go - that is what your target was - new woman every week.
Good luck

Hey U...that's true...I actually believe that God doesn't let me date certain women, even thought I may lust for them heartily, it doesn't happen...what's your goal if you dont mind me asking....email me if you want...im trying to go from 230 to 200 by the end of year...I figure that the 1st 15-20 will be easy, the last 10-15 will be the hard part

RD!
Awe, thanks!! I think my cuz agrees...she's tried to hook me up with some nice ones, just didnt work

Mistress
Yeah, especially boys who can control their eating habits! My boy Blueprint lost 43 pounds in a few months time by just eating once a day. No exactly healthy, but definitely effective.

TCas
Good story all the same...did ol girl also catch it or did you not even wait around to see?

Snakebite
Yeah like I was telling JoJoD,I'm going to post it no matter what the weight is, good or bad...it gives me motivation...and its not like im fat, just a lil pudgy......My mack-o-meter is broken I think, but I have a story that I might tell.....might....I'm debating with myself....

Negropino
Hmm...Cuz you went and got a BLOGGER on me...see I wasn't sure if the GOM/Mr Martin cat was a blogger, so I let that slide..LOL..I'm kidding...I think...

I am not trying to be mean, but you speak of women in very superficial ways, but act kinda surprised when these women in turn are superficial. You like her because she's fair and has long hair. Not because she's nice, or a good person. She very well may have those qualities, but you never mentioned them. I'll tell you like I tell my male friends...dig deeper. Just my two cents. Feel free to cuss me out.

HEY you.....as long as its respectful, you can feel free to say anything you would like....my blog is open to any criticism. I've wrote things in the past that I knew I would get grilled for...subconciously even wanted to...but anyways to answer your question -

You know what? That is true, very true.....very very true, on some of the things you say....I guess because not every chick that I deem fine or whatever is money hungry, but it seems like a lot that I run into are or have other motives that I'm dont care about.....But every chick that I've dated or attempted to that I've mention on my blog is genuinely nice and is an overall good person, so I never feel a need to mention that because if they didn't have those prerequisite qualities then I wouldn't have even tried to talk to them in the first place...trust me I dig deep...a chick can get me with the visuals, but she'll KEEP ME with the MENTAL.....blogger is erasing my comments so I've had to start over a few times now...lol...i forgot the rest I said here, but if you would like, you could email me and I could explain more at length.....I love black women period..you all are so lovely to me....but we all have preferences right?

Negropino
Oh..............ok........I stand corrected....you're forgiven, LOL!!

Wed Aug 16, 01:30:00 PM  
Blogger Miz JJ said...

Thanks for not cussing me out. Lol. I say do you. However, it does make me smile when dudes get upset when a pretty girls like ballers, or men with money. If you get hit on a lot you will weed people out and supposedly go for what you think is the best. If you noticed that she's fly you probably aren't the only one and there will be competiton for her. I just think it's weak when men hate on women for only dating ballers. It's a preference...right? I can't hate on you. At least you openly state you love black women, which is feeling like a rare thing these days.

By the way congrats on the weight loss. And for being so out there with it. I don't think I have it in me to show my scale number. Lol.

Weird about coming to america tho cos i watched that on sunday just got, i have seen it so many times. I love it. Did you know that Mr Murphy is marrying one of the old spice girls, how weird is that.
Oh, and it is nice when a man has got a big behind, something else to look at rather than the usual.
