Beatiful weather, Diet coke prop bet and future plans

Things have been going great recently for me. I made a trip to Florida to visit my parents, but unfortunately had to skip PCA due to health issues, but all is for the best.
Looking at the weather reports, I'm so grateful to no longer be living in a cold-weather climate. Vegas during anytime but the summer has such great weather. It's hard to believe January can have this much sunshine in the northern hemisphere.
Anyone that knows me even casually knows that I used to drink way too much soda. I've been drinking over 24 cans a day of Diet Coke for years. Somehow I've quit cold turkey and its been over 3 weeks since I had my last soda. For some extra motivation TheLandlord (my former landlord in Brooklyn) and I have a 2 month bet going where if I either of drink a can of soda we have to pay the other person $20. So far TLL has slipped twice.. I have a perfect record still and don't plan on changing that.
In my last blog post, I mentioned a goal of being ranked in the top 100 on Pocketfives. Since that time I've cut down on my playing schedule a bunch, so barring some really big scores it seems like its unlikely to happen any time soon, but with poker you never know when the next heater might come.
One of the reasons why I've been playing lower volume has been an increase in students in recent times, they're progress has even astounded me. I'm very proud with the results of the students I've worked with and that has got me motivated to try and provide more avenues in training with the hopes of seeing some even larger scores from my students.

Keep an eye on him at the home game! I've been trying to bait him into having a soda every now and then, hoping to retire off him:)
