I have been lax in my fitness and nutrition over the last 3 months and have started to see the effects on the scale once again. When I reached my goal of 160 in March of 2008, I intended on maintaining a weight of 160-163lbs. While I've only g... Read more

Well, I reached one of my primary goals a month before my time. I wanted to drop down from a 34" waist to a 32" waist and I hit the mark Friday. Wife went shopping and bought me a new pair of jeans on a whim. They were 32's. I slid right in ... Read more

Last week was a crazy week, and it totally threw me off my game. Historically, one of the biggest problems I have with maintaining a fitness program is lack of consistency due to travel. I used to view travel as a time to treat myself. (I'm ... Read more

Worked my shoulders, abs, and legs really hard Friday and I was feeling the pain yesterday morning. Getting out of bed was rough. After I stretched out real good and did some cardio, things loosened up quite a bit. Got up this morning an... Read more

Well today was the first test of the week. I wound up eating out twice because of work. It was actually really easy for me to choose wisely because I had eaten a little something just prior to both meals. I walked out of both restaurants feel... Read more

Every time I commit to exercise, something in my life creeps up and tries to derail me. Today it was the sinuses. Woke up feeling like crap. I got up, read what was going on in the world and just kept feeling worse and worse. I debated long a... Read more

I saw a new members post this morning and noticed she mentioned a milestone in her life. She commented on the fact she was about to complete a BS, and it got me to thinking about my own life. In 1997, I was working for a local PD and somet... Read more

Ok, truth be told I started working out again around the 2nd week of December. Wasn't hitting any weights, just strictly cardio. Then the inevitable trip to the in-laws / parents homes for the holiday really threw me off track. Especially sin... Read more
