It is the last week of the diet and the scale has finally responded the way I had been hoping. This week my average weight has been 165.8, with a new low yesterday of 164.4. Since March 18th I have lost a little more than 40lbs. My waist at the navel has gone from 39.5″ […]Read more "Friday Fitness: The Results of the Diet"
My weight is hovering around 168, and after five weeks I can safely say it is ever so slowly trending downward; the scale no longer peaks above 169 and this morning I showed a new low 0f 166.4.

I still measure 34″ at the waist and 32.75″ at the navel. It does not bother me, the diet isn’t really […]Read more "Fitness Friday: thoughts on the squat"

There are a couple of possible reasons for the lack of progress: I started lifting again, and that might cause some water retention. I haven’t taken a good dump since Sunday afternoon. Hmm… probably number two (or lack thereof). So […]Read more "Fitness Friday: Back to Lifitng"
