Why losing fat sucks. (VERY, VERY LONG BLOG/ARTICLE)
I keep stating I'm going to do this or that, I plan it, I set myself up for it and... I never actually do it. I know what I need to do, follow many of the steps of the cycle of change, but I never get to the point of doing the action. And even i... Read more
I don't think I have done enough to lose any weight yet, but I am getting more aware of what I am eating and tracking everything. Also, today I finally started my training for doing a 5k in June. I want to be able to jog the whole thing, but I a... Read more
Work to Failure.
I went to visit home this weekend and I finally weighed myself after about a month or so. I'm thinking "I have been doing a little better, my weight should be slightly lower than last time." Nope! Not only did I not lose weight, I've gained an a... Read more
Rewired Day 1
So, according to the Rewired workout on Bodybuilding.com, I should make a letter to myself that lays out three things I want to work on during the next nine weeks.
The three things I would like to focus on are: reduce sugar and other junk i... Read more
Attack Plan for Tomorrow.
I'm a bit tuckered out tonight, so I'm going to bed early (I could use it too, since I have an 8 AM lab class). But I need to write down what I actually need to do tomorrow.
6:30 AM - 7:15 AM Shower, prep lunch and snacks, eat breakfast.

Best compliment of my life.
So, first, I wanted to say that at I started at 240 lbs and over 3 years whittled my weight down to 209 for a convention, but since i have gained almost all of it back and am now 235 lbs.
I go to a convention every July/August (end of July ... Read more
The Fighting Spirit!
So, I started watching some motivational music videos and starting going through a lot of Hajime no Ippo (boxing anime series, English title is The Fighting Spirit, though they are not translations of one another). I really like the manga (graph... Read more
The Fat Atlas
Note: I'm going to be a little ADD with this post, jumping topics and whatnot.
I was going to name this "Fat Guy Lifts the World" as a parody of "Fat Kid Rules the World" to illustrate the idea of an unfit male training, lifting weights and bu... Read more
A prescription for Slap
No, I didn't really go and get a prescription, but since I am in dietetics and in particular the "nutrition education and counseling" course, I figured I could write a "prescription" for myself to outline my current problems, diagnosis, and trea... Read more
Not sure how to title this...
Just more updates. I seem to do better if I post more blogs here. Anyhow, I've learned some interesting goal stuff last week and I plan to put them into action.
The main action thing I learned last week was actually a "stages of change" model,... Read more
Has it really been two weeks?
Has it really been two weeks since I posted my last blog? I swear I posted it like three days ago. I didn't really make any changes to my life until this Wednesday, in which I had to walk for 20 minutes. Of my whole class, I was in the top third... Read more
So my Fall semester has started. I feel like this is the first real semester at the university since I'm taking several classes within my major now and I'm getting a lot of professional advice to my future career.
I have been doing absolutely... Read more
Otakon has come and gone.
Otakon was awesome.
My Goku was more popular than before and Powerline was an absolute hit! My Kaneki wasn't popular at all, but I expected as much since a number of people cosplayed as him and I did an average version of him.
Anyhow, to... Read more
Day 255 of the 275 Day Challenge.
So I made myself a goal to lift 10 Tons by Otakon, but I realize now it's a silly goal. Not like you think... it's too small of a goal. I just did one 20 minute workout and lifts 2200 lbs in just the one workout. But this is the only training I'... Read more
Day 251 of the 275 Day Challenge.
If you've read any of my other recent blog posts, you'll know that I have not only not achieved my goal for the challenge, but I have gained back almost all the weight I have lost overall. I am currently at 235 lbs. I hate to admit that I am at ... Read more
