    The menu I have planned at the moment is:

    Milk Chocolate Fountain (I might mix in 1/4 to 1/3 dark chocolate so it isn't too sweet)
    Fresh strawberries, marshmallows, rice crispy treats, pretzel sticks, banana, mandarin oranges, granola bars.

    Traditional Hummus w/ pita and rice crackers

    Pulled pork sandwiches
    Creamy and vinegar based coleslaw
    Regular and spicy BBQ sauce as well as a spicy vinegar based sauce.
    Pickles, provolone, pepperchinis. red onion.

    Honey Blonde Ale

    If you would like to bring an item it would be greatly appreciated, but please do not feel obligated to do so.

    Side that would complement the above would be awesome. Interesting beers are always more than welcome. Regular/lite Bud/Miller/Coors beers to share are also great.

    The only thing I specifically try to avoid is sugar. Other than that it's the 3 Cs, Count Calories and do Cardio. I actually try to find fat to add to my diet, within calorie limits. I don't avoid carbs specifically, but that's the first thing I cut when trying to stay in my calorie limits, so I end up eating very few carbs because they are so high in easily cut calories.

    I should add, I love the food I've been eating. It's not a diet. It's just good food that I love to eat. I just keep within my calorie limit Monday through Friday and eat one splurge meal on the weekend.

    I've been eating a lot of fish. Like a lot.

    I've always had a very sweet tooth but I'm trying to limit my sugar, it turns out I feel better the less sugar that I ingest. I try to be constant with cardio as well, with some jogging and occasional hikes with my dog.

    He’s setting you assholes up.

    Stoked will be like “All Red, Baby!!!” on the first hand. . . and then by the end of the night he’s telling stories about Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu in Vegas.

    So 70th S and Bangerter is a mess right now. You can not cross Bangerter going E/W at 70th. You can only make right turns off of Bangerter onto 70th. So that means if you're traveling south you can turn onto 70th going west, but if you're going north you can only turn onto 70th going east (away from my house). So check with your favorite map application for alternate routes.

    Just out of curiosity, what is your calorie limit?

    2000-2500 no adjustment for the 300+ burned with cardio, plus I walk at least 8 miles a day at work and intentionally try to walk as much as possible and stay on my feet instead of sitting down.

    That includes an allowance of 2 beers a night.

    I've read recently counting calories "doesn't work" which I think is because people aren't actually counting all the calories they eat and/or are shooting for stupid low calories like 1500 and they end up binging at some point because they are starving.

    I think one of the biggest things I've done that I usually forget to mention is that I changed my bedtime. I work from 2pm-10:30pm and I used to stay up until 2am and wake up at 10am. When I started losing weight I changed my bedtime to midnight, less time to drink extra beers and eat an extra meal or snack. Waking up at 8am gives me the extra time to meal prep and go to the gym. I think it's important when trying to make a lifestyle change you make a disruptive change like that to help change habits/routines.

    Okay, so we're holding steady at 12. Open seats! If you're on the fence just do it!

    So far:
    Siro
    Jazzata
    Numberica
    Stoked
    Ron Mexico
    Archie +1
    BigB
    Me +1 (Adam, guy I work with)
    Austin (he has a jazzfanz account but doesn't post much)
    Derrick (Austin's +1, guy we work with)

    If you're planning to come but are not on that list please let me know. I skimmed through looking for all the "ins" but it's possible I missed someone.

    Still a few people who have been out several times I haven't heard from. I'm still holding out hope.

    PMs have been sent.

    I mention in the PM that I'm trying a new online blind timer, Blind Valet.

    It has been my dream to one day have a single user friendly way for all my guests to register for tournaments. That day is probably not here yet, but I hope that most people will eventually use this option.

    Blind Valet has several advantages for both me and my guests.

    For the guests:
    See all the tournament details, including blind structure, payouts, starting stacks.
    Registration and the ability to see who else is registered.
    You can have the blind timer open on your phone in real time, handy for breaks.
    You can see who has been eliminated on your phone

    For me:
    I don't have to do the leg work of contacting people, then waiting to hear back, then registering them.
    I can display the blinds on any connected device
    I can pause the clock, eliminate players or make any other adjustment from my phone without having to get up from my seat.

    you can start by going here: www.blindvalet.com
    I sent the code for my group in the PMs.

    I understand people don't want to have to register at yet another web site. I understand not everyone will want to use this option. But please consider it.
