Accept Your Own Unique Body Type

Friday, December 28, 2012      13 comments

"I want your abs!". I get this comment a lot. While I know it's meant as a compliment, some of the people who say this are seriously trying to get abs just like mine. They will write me telling me they've eaten what I eat, exercised like ... Read more

Don't Jack With Your Program!

Friday, December 28, 2012      10 comments

You know what I think is one of the biggest reasons people don't lose weight on a program? Because they don't follow the program in it's entirety. They do part of it, but not all of it. They hire a coach and do the exercises he says but don't... Read more

Have You Heard of Baking Eggs Instead of Boiling Them?

Friday, October 26, 2012      17 comments

I love having hard boiled eggs around, but they can be a pain in the tush to make. The pot can boil over if the eggs break in there, making a horrible mess to clean up; there is a risk of not getting them done enough; and there is always the ch... Read more

Monday, October 22, 2012      25 comments

I'll come right to the point: Guys, we women like for you to have butts. And it seems that as you age, if you don't get your.... er... butts into the gym, you wind up with flat backsides. This flattening pretty much expressly comes from sit... Read more

Coconut Oil- Try it and You'll Never Go Back!

Sunday, October 14, 2012      16 comments

Have you ever heard of coconut oil? I hadn't either, until I read about it in Tosca Reno's "Eat Clean" books. She says she eats 3 Tablespoons of it a day. Now, Tosca doesn't eat any foods that are not clean, so I'm sure that 360 calories of a ... Read more

Ever Wondered How the Most Muscular Guy in the Gym Lifts?

Wednesday, August 22, 2012      14 comments

I have mentioned my workout partner, Ivory, in my blogs a few times. He's a big fella (6'2" or so) with the kind of look many men aspire towards: Read more

I HATE Cheat Meals!

Friday, August 17, 2012      28 comments

Man.... I have a real problem with this whole "Cheat Meal", or worse yet, "Cheat Day" concept. First of all, could we please stop using the word "cheat"? Cheat makes it sound like if you don't over-indulge in foods that are horrible for yo... Read more

Sunday, August 05, 2012      5 comments

I have a tip I use when figuring out how many cardio calories I have burned. This stems from something I read in David Greenwalt's book "The Leanness Lifestyle", which I consider my fitness bible. In the book he states that it's reasonable to ... Read more

Motivating The People Around You To Get Fit

Saturday, July 28, 2012      8 comments

I must admit, I was a little misleading with that title. Because now I am about to disappoint you. And I am also about to get lambasted by people for a myriad of reasons that even I can't predict. It's a touchy subject, but I have come to... Read more

Wednesday, July 18, 2012      14 comments

Lately I've learned first hand that some of the things I have read but was never sure about are indeed true. I would recommend you take my word for these things and not try to find out first-hand. The process stinks. Here they are, in no ... Read more

What To Eat Before and After You Workout

Saturday, July 14, 2012      15 comments

This is a subject that brings a lot of confusion, and understandably so. Thankfully, there is a short answer: Protein and Carbs. Both protein and carbs work in conjunction to both fuel and repair your muscles. Easy 'nuff, right? But... Read more

Magic Grocery Shopping

Monday, May 21, 2012      9 comments

Once a month I do my "big shopping" in a large grocery store. As I wander down the aisles I will sometimes see women with a look on their face that I recognize. It's because I used to have the very same look on my face several years ago. It's... Read more

The Evolvement of Moderation

Tuesday, May 15, 2012      8 comments

I have heard a lot of people say that a life of moderation is key in keeping balance between real life and fitness. I completely agree, but I've come to find that my view of moderation has had to change as my fitness journey has progressed. Wh... Read more
