I didn’t grow up in a gym. I didn’t grow up lifting weights of any sort. I played sports in school, I cheered competitively and I “worked” out at “aerobics classes” in college. I did some circuit machines in regular gyms. I may have picked up 15lb or 20lb dumbbells at a normal gym and… Continue reading I ❤ LIFTING! And you should too!
Well Boys and Girls… by now I would have slipped, faulted, or something terrible. It’s now day 22 and I haven’t gone off the path once. Not even a tiny, teeny, little bit! That’s a first for me!

I’m doing alright ladies and gents. I’m drinking all the water, eating the right foods, and following my Advocare journal. I’m getting better on the mental “I don’t wanna” battle. I have iron-clad will power and I like it. Hehe, well maybe it’s not iron-clad but I’m sticking with the program and not testing or… Continue reading Day 4/80
A whole PECAN pie last week. Well in 3.5 days to be exact. And I loved it and hated it all at the same time. Seriously WTF is wrong with me! Pie for breakfast? YES. How about pie for lunch? YES, please. And would you like pie for dessert after dinner? Uhm, (raising hand), yes!… Continue reading Confessions of a fat kid – I ate a whole pie.
Let’s play a little catch up. About 15 weeks ago, I said, I’m done. Too fat. I don’t like it. Need to get to work. Eat better. Work out consistently. Focus.

It’s part of what makes us human. Do something and get results. Sadly, we are an instant gratification society. We want it now.… Continue reading Makin’ Gainz, Makes Me Happy!
