Level 2 Continued...

Tuesday, April 22, 2014      3 comments

Overall, my Fastbreak was a success. Level 2 is turning out to be a failure. There's lag, and it's apparently taking days to respawn. Last Wednesday was 3 pieces of Jet's pizza. Woke up super bloated. Last Thursday - Sunday I was at... Read more

Level 2

Tuesday, April 15, 2014      3 comments

I finished my Fastbreak, doing pretty well. I ate within my calorie range on 11 out of 13 days, and got 20+ sparkpoints on 12 out of 13 days. My 10+minute per day workouts weren't so hot. I now have new goals - Eating within my calorie... Read more

Fastbreak - Day 7

Friday, April 04, 2014      7 comments

I'm 1 week in, and I'm doing all right. I have stayed within my calorie range every day (1400-1550, + 240 on days I lift, to accommodate a delicious shake to help repair my muscles). I've been getting 20+ Sparkpoints daily - typically by... Read more

Fastbreak - Day 4

Tuesday, April 01, 2014      4 comments

I must have been super bloated when I weighed myself on Saturday morning, because I have lost SIX POUNDS since then. Even my rings are fitting better. And it's only been FOUR DAYS. WTF!? I'm not complaining. Seeing that big 200 was a li... Read more

Fastbreak - Day 2

Sunday, March 30, 2014      6 comments

So far I'm on a roll. It's only day two, so there's that. But still! Two days! Today I got on the scale again. One of my plans is to weigh myself more often. The more I weigh myself, the better I am about things. I'm not really concer... Read more

Where I Went

D2s Update

Sunday, November 10, 2013      9 comments

So... I was dreading my workouts. I hated following the meal plan. And I gave it six weeks. I initially lost a bit of fat, maybe (or bloat?) but after that - I just didn't want to do it anymore. It was making me crazy. And so my update ... Read more

Drop Two Sizes Thermometer Jeans Update

Friday, October 11, 2013      8 comments

Well, I tried on my thermometer jeans. I wasn't feeling too confident because, well - I'm not really restricting much. Week 1 I ate an average of 2400 calories/day. Week 2 was an average of 2300. This week, I am aiming for 1800-2100 calories... Read more

Drop Two Sizes Update

Sunday, October 06, 2013      8 comments

Well, I just finished my second week of Drop 2 Sizes yesterday. So far, it's going ok. The workouts are all right, though I do miss the big lifts. It has goblet squats (where you hold a dumbbell with two hands) and Romanian Deadlifts (where y... Read more

Thermometer Jeans

Rachel Cosgrove (author of Drop 2 Sizes, wife of my hero trainer, Alwyn Cosgrove) says that instead of weighing myself while doing D2S, I should instead use a pair of pants and try them on every 3 weeks. I have 2 pairs of pants. Both fit ... Read more
