Weekly Weigh-In – June 23rd, 2016

Shortest gym visit ever. The only reason I went in today is to weigh myself. I should have worked out. Lots of reasons I could point to for not working out; sore foot, still stiff and aching from my core … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – June 21st, 2016 – Abs/Core

Fit Report – June 20th, 2016 – Arms/Chest

Man, I hate this ‘figuring new stuff out’ phase of working out. I like to know what I’m going to be doing when I go to the gym so that I can just get down to doing it. As it … …but wait, there’s more! »

One week to go to meet my goal of being under 170 lbs before my birthday! And how is it going? Slower than I’d hoped, but progress is still being made. As of this afternoon, I’m down another 0.4 lbs … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – June 13th, 2016 – Fit Fix (Legs/Back)

Fit Report – June 10th, 2016 – Fit Fit (Chest/Arms/Core)

First off, a little whine. OH MY GOD MY LEGS ARE SORE AND TIRED WHEN WILL THEY NOT BE SORE AND TIRED?!?!? There, that’s that out of the way. I woke up so tired this morning. Our two-year-old had a … …but wait, there’s more! »
