Tuesday, October 18, 2011      3 comments

For the past 5+ years of my life, I’ve been going at this whole thing all wrong. I would essentially eat what I want and exercise until I was a puddle of sweat on the floor, until my muscles ached so bad that I could barely move them. I wish I ... Read more

I know I need some sort of motivating factor in my life. I don’t currently have one so I kind of float around on a day to day basis not making very good decisions about my food. So if I’m going to do this, I’m going to have to make it up with ex... Read more
