I buried my brother today. He was a really great guy. The congregation numbered 2500. It still hasn't sunk in. He died last week Wednesday. It was an open casket. I couldn't look at his face because when I looked it didn't look like him. There w... Read more

I asked him directly what he meant when he said he loved me. So my trainer explained himself via email. He said "There are many kinds of love and the love I feel for you is, I guess, a fondness. You're fun to be around. I look forward to seeing... Read more

So SO complained about not spending enough time/spending too much time at the gym. "Nobody needs to go that often" Riiiight, well I do! I go four days a week which leaves three days for the both of us. Not enough. I ended up cancelling going to... Read more

I had two high calorie meals in the past two days, a horribly greasy chinese meal (even though it was vegetarian) and a home-cooked meal that I didn't realize was so high cal in the food database. I'm hoping that it won't affect the four pounds ... Read more

I'm beginning to realize how much mental effort counts when it comes to exercise. I went to the gym feeling very reluctant about doing any exercise and whether I'll be able to do my sets. I thought I wouldn't be able to progress and I ended up s... Read more

I'm trying to figure out what my motivation is for exercise. My trainer ran me through a series of exercises to induce muscle fatigue. They worked. I feel it mostly in my arms especially the back of my arms, which I'm fine with. But I'm still s... Read more

Just received some news that knocked me for a bit of a loop concerning a relative. Not too much information I want to give out, just that it's the kind of info that makes you keenly aware of life and death, especially death. All I can do is look... Read more
