Level 2 Continued...
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
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 -

Fastbreak - Day 7
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
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
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
So, I was missing for about 5 months. Last I left off, I stopped doing Drop 2 Sizes. I did Strongifts 5x5 for a little while in the interim, and then I started New Rules of Lifting: Supercharged in January. I just started Basic Training III y... Read more
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
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
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
Tales of the Gym
Here's the story:
Forties or so dudebro at the Y yesterday morning is singing along with his headphones (to rap/hip-hop). Does some shoulder presses in the smith machine. Starts admiring himself in the mirror. Takes his shirt off. Starts ta... Read more
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
Here are my guns, courtesy of NROL4W:
The big turnout is... I am a lot stronger. My 1 rep max for deadlifts is 190lbs. Considering I started out with the bar, I'm prett... Read more
Always More Drama
First of all, here is a link to an Instagram video of my bunny, Willow. Oh my gawd, she is so FLUFFY!!! She kills me with her cuteness. And she's so sweet.
I am twitterpated over my bun.

1) Friday, I finished New Rules of Lifting for Women. I started on March 6th, and finished September 13th. I am so happy I stuck with it. It has been such an awesome journey, and I feel so much better about myself - even though my pants are u... Read more
Here I am!
I have been busy getting back to work, trying to make some progress on projects, and looking at bunnies. We are getting a bunny (or two) this weekend to replace the vacancy in our home since both ratties have died.
Anyway... Read more
