Seven Days Strong, Watch Me Move Along!

seven

Seven Days! That’s how long I’ve been steadily on track. I’ve gone to the gym 4 times in the last week. I’ve tracked my food every day. I’ve not cheated, snacked outside of what I planned, or made shitty decisions. That’s a huge win! I’ve said this before but I’m repeating it, it is IMPERATIVE…

Sometimes You Just Gotta Say, “Fuck It”.

I’ve discovered that getting healthy involves not just what you eat with your mouth, but what you eat with your brain. What are you ingesting? So here’s the confession of the week. I have a weakness.

Beating the Binge

I won today. Like, I seriously kicked the ass of what could have been a HUGE 2500-calorie binge! I conquered it like I was wearing a flaming kilt! I kicked it’s ass like a high-school nerd! I walked a mudhole in it’s ass and stomped it dry! So, here’s how it went down: I was…

Remember Susan Powter, diet guru from the 90s, kept saying “It’s fat that’s making you fat!”. I do think there is something to this though because it definitely works that way with sugar for me.

Diet Pill = Magic Success, But at What Price?

I saw another news article this morning about some new magical diet pill that some drug company in Canada is trying to get FDA approval on here. I dunno, I always wrinkle my nose a bit at diet pill ads and propaganda. The diet pill industry is a multi-million dollar a year industry mainly because…

Lucky Duck – Elliptical

I’ve been looking for an elliptical for a long time but always talked myself out of it at the last minute due to the cost. Well, readers, I am happy to announce that I finally got my elliptical! It’s a Nordictrack ACT and looks like this:   A friend of mine at work had this…
