Let’s NOT talk about boobs.

You know, I expected today to be uneventful for the most part. I was planning to blog about not being able to get to 40 lbs with dumbbells (80 lbs total) on the incline press, when I can easily knock out 3 sets of 10 with the 35 lb dumbbells. (I couldn’t even get the […] Read more…

A review of my absense in photos.

Damn. It’s been a while.   Where to even start…   Oh yeah, the no sugar bet. David and I both made it through the week without ingesting any added sugar. (We were still eating fruit and dairy though.) We even withheld at a party that had these treats laid out before us, begging to […] Read more…

Quickie

Just wanted to check in and let you who ever cares know that I’m alive! I’ve been busy with the Christmas madness. New posts soon, promise! Read more…

Good job, young Padawan.

This was while he was in the depths of a pastry and candy binge fest that must’ve lasted at least a fortnight. Ashamed of himself (not really), he accepted. I was originally not participating in […] Read more…

Boring

Remember that song Flag Pole Sitta by Harvey Danger? The song came out when I was about 12 or 13, and while I was never crazy about it, one line from it always stuck with me: “If you’re bored then you’re boring.” Lately I’ve been wondering if that’s true. You see, I have issues with […] Read more…

Feeling tough?

Then try this move out the next time you’re at the gym: It’s some kind of burpee-chinup hybrid dealie. Sure gets the job done! Wish I could have gotten better footage of it, but my camera died right when I turned it on, so we had to resort to using my phone. Anyway, have a […] Read more…
