Motivation For Weight Loss… If @JonahHill Can so Can I

November 22, 2011 1 comment

Well for the past 2 years I have made multiple attempts of trying to lose weight. I have started quite a few “Biggest Loser” Contests at work, one of which I list 40lbs in 3 months, and I have also tried to do it on my own tracking everything I ate throughout the week. All in all it has been very difficult as I have been stuck at this plato. From the 40lbs that I have lost I have added back on 20 (not good).

With that said it is time for a new plan!!!! For those who do not know, I am expecting TWIN girls next year and I want to make sure that I get on track to a healthy lifestyle so I can be in the life for many years to come and making sure that I can be an active Dad.

After seeing the tremendous weight loss that celebrity Jonah Hill (@jonahhill) has accomplished and seeing that it is quite possible at this age to still lose weight, I am determined to make another attempt.

So starting Monday, November 28th, I plan to completely change my lifestyle of eating, start exercising on a daily basis, and going to start feeling a lot better about myself (I chose Monday as it is impossible to start this change on Thanksgiving week). Hopefully with the help of friends, I will be able to cut out the drinking (not hard as I have done it before) & cut out the fast food.

The plan will be to weigh in every Monday morning and post my weight / weight loss via my Twitter account (@sgiuffrejr). So please if you haven’t already follow me, and be sure to Tweet to me or post comments on my blog to help motivate me. Even in weight loss there is no “i” in success


#SocialNetworking Gone Bad?

First I would like to start of with Google+. When Google+ was introduced by invitation only I thought it might have had some potential however since it when public I still have the same amount of people in my “circles” as before. I really hoped that it would have had a better effect in taking over Facebook. I honestly think Google just needs to find something that can be EYE CATCHING that Facebook doesn’t have. I am still trying to think of an idea that would blow Facebook out of the waters and allow Google+ to take the lead.

What features would you like to see Google+ get that may influence you to jump flag ships?


Next I would like to take focus on TWITTER!!!! What is going on with Twitter? It has been around for a few years now, celebrities utilize it more than anyone else but yet there still isn’t a lot of REAL people using it. I actually like twitter a little more especially where you can post more photos and it is meant for constant status updating. So why hasn’t more commoners become adapted to Twitter yet?

What would it take for you to become a Tweeter?

#DeathPools – Moral or Immoral?

August 8, 2011 Leave a comment

A Death Pool aKa “Dead Pool” is a game of prediction which involves guessing when somebody is going to die. I first started hearing of these Death Pools back in 2009 when the likes of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Bea Arthur, Brittany Murphey, Ed McMahon, Patrick Swayze and many others passed. Death is not something that should be laughed about or even gambled over. So why do people do “Death Pools”? Why do people create a list of celebrities that they think are going to die in the coming year?

Well not going to lie but I myself am apart of a Celebrity Death Pool (which by the way I am horrible at). Why did I do the death pool? Quite simple, it cost 10$ to join and to put a list of people together who I think might die this year. Before creating this list I did a little research and found celebrities that were in and out of hospitals, gone completely coocoo or simply just didn’t seem to be going on the right path. I joined this pool and created this list not wishing death upon any celebrity but with the way they seemed to be dropping I guess it was just an cheap and easy pool that for 12 months I really didn’t need to pay attention to and just wait to see if I win or not. As of right now my list is still alive and kicking.

Here is a list of people on my list with a little reasoning to why I picked them:

  1. Miley Cyrus – I mean look at her, seems to be following the likes of all Lindsay Lohan and Brittney Spears but I feel that maybe she was just going to take it a little further.
  2. Lindsay Lohan – Have you seen her on the news? Seen the way she has been acting? I am suprised she is still kicking after all those drugs.
  3. Michael Douglas – He was a popular one on other lists as he was battling cancer.
  4. Margaret Thatcher – Lady Thatcher still alive but funeral plans are already in the works?
  5. Stan Lee – This guy is almost 89 years old!!!
  6. Hugh Hefner – Rockin 85 years old and has more swag then anyone reading this post.
  7. Betty White – The last Golden Girl can only go on for so long. Seems like she has resurrected her career once she became the last Golden Girl.
  8. Zsa Zsa Gabor – She was having lots of heath issues and is currently in a coma.
  9. Nicole Polizzi (snooki) – Have you seen the way she parties?
  10. Kirk Douglas – Had some health issues leading into 2011
  11. Mel Gibson – This guy went crazy last year.
  12. Cher – How much more can one handle with all these drugs?
  13. Charlie Sheehn – After is departure from Two and A Half Men him and and Warlocks have gone nuts.

Now all of my guesses are still alive and kicking. So do I feel that Death Pools are Moral and that they are ok to do? Well yes I think they are fine. I am not GOD and I cannot “legally” cause someone to die, so what is wrong with me putting a list together? I don’t believe in superstition or “jinx” and I can put 13 names on a list every year and it will not cause a persons death.

How do you feel about Death Pools? Care to share your list?
