How to lose 30 lbs in 3 months!
Bet the title of that got your attention. It did for me as well (there's an article on thesoko.com with that title).
I'm almost done stage 2 of NROWLW and two things are dawning on me: 1) this isn't working at all and; 2) what am I going... Read more
New Rules - Week 9
This week I started stage 2 of NROWLW. I like it a lot better than stage 1. Partially because it's shorter - 2.5-3 weeks, so I don't think I'll get bored. Also because it doesn't have lunges. Well, it does have lunges, but these variations a... Read more
Harm done this week. 2lbs of harm done. And I've been good this week too! I wonder if, calorie-wise, the New Rules has me eating too much? While their logic is sound, I seemed to be losing more when I was going by SP guidelines (as in, I act... Read more
New Rules - Week 8
This was my week off, so there's not too much to report. I guess all I can say is that there's been no harm done. Well, I hope harm hasn't been done! I went to weigh myself today only to discover that my scale had gone haywire! It was tellin... Read more

New Rules - Week 6
Hmmm fruits of my labour? I lost 1lb. My stomach is still looking a lot flatter - which is encouraging. However, my measurements are more or less the same and the fit of my clothes is the same. Fat-loss with weights is very confusing.

New Rules - Week 5
A bit late on the updating, due to a wedding on the weekend. Week 5 was interesting. As my previous blog indicates, I lost a bit of motivation. I also decided to try to cut an extra 100 calories per day, making my deficit about 300. So far, ... Read more
Lately, going to the gym has become a chore. I feel like all the time I'm slugging those weights around is wasted. I am getting stronger - my friends at Bodybuilders will be happy to know that their resident weakling is finally strong enough f... Read more
New Rules - Week 4
This week, I aimed for getting to the gym 5 times. It's Saturday, and so far I've been 4 times. I had intended to go on Friday, however the weather was beeee-u-tee-full, so I thought I'd much rather read out in the sunshine during the afternoo... Read more
New Rules - Week 3
In short...EPIC FAIL!!!!!! I could only get to the gym once this week. Yes once. A detailed list of why I couldn't make it:
Sunday - I worked right through my gym's open hours.
Monday - Holiday, gym was closed.
Tuesday - Had to take my ... Read more
New Rules - Week 2
Well week #2 is done and I'm getting a bit discouraged. I wish I could see more fat falling off.
During one of my lunges, my left hamstring decided that it did not want to lunge anymore! I could barely bend my leg before the muscle got ... Read more
Today I decided to shake things up for my cardio. Normally I go to the tried and true elliptical, but lately I find myself on the elliptical, looking at the treadmill with longing. So for my intervals today, I hopped on the treadmill. I would... Read more
New Rules - Week 1
So I've completed one week of The New Rules of Lifting (farther than I got the other time!). I have one more workout to complete before I bump the weights and lower the resistance. Since I haven't worked out in ages and wasn't very strong to b... Read more
Off to a slow start
Well I've joined a gym and am implementing The New Rules of Lifting. My legs don't like me very much...
I know I've only managed to make it to the gym twice this week, I was just hoping that I'd start seeing results by now, like my belly r... Read more
Have I lost them??? I think I have....
*Crawls out of academic hidey-hole and returns to SP*
So where have I been these past few weeks? Well the first week was filled with working and St. Paddy's festivities. The next two weeks were... Read more
