Had a meeting with the trainer at my local Anytime Fitness yesterday. It was my so-called "one free session" but it was actually a moronic 15 minute workout followed by a 30 minute sales pitch. I liked the guy so I let him go through his present... Read more

Well, my wife and I went out and celebrated her new job last night and I ate a wee much! So I'm going to opt for a low cal soup day today, which means I'll eat soup for every meal and snack as normal. I usually only do this on Mondays, my day of... Read more

I had a long day yesterday and then a very early morning today which means that I only slept for about five hours last night. It's amazing to me how much I'm craving the wrong stuff this morning. I've read plenty of articles about sleep and its ... Read more
