The deadlift really is by far my favorite lift. Such raw power. Feeling yourself rip the weight from the floor with as much strength as you possibly can. Nothing quite like it when it comes to lifting weights. That's why it is always a competition with the professionals to see how much they can deadlift. … Continue reading Week 15 – Day 4: Deadlift!!
I am getting very tired of doing the same workout routine (apparently getting tired of the same food and exercise is a thing) and decided to just give my feet a tiny, little test on Thursday. I got on the elliptical for half of the time I was there and did the normal "hill mode" … Continue reading Week 13 – Day 4: A for Effort

That's the thing about eating poorly, it's not like you accidentally did it (other than when I believe what MFP tells me without double-checking...), it is always something that you allow to happen.

In the past I would actually make it into waffles. Well, I decided to do … Continue reading Week 10 – Day 4: Waffles
I do enjoy donuts quite a bit. Dunford donuts are hard to beat. I know people who think that things like Krispy Kreme are the bomb (hi dad) but nothing beats a good heavy, cake-like donuts. My boss brought in donuts on Wednesday and I was glad that I had already had my oatmeal or … Continue reading Week 9 – Day 4: I Turned Down Donuts
I swear I can't catch a break. Ask my wife, I am the most positive person on the planet (the joke is the fact that I am the most pragmatic person alive) but this is really getting discouraging. On top of every other little issue I have been having, today I tried to do some … Continue reading Week 8 – Day 4: Seriously!?
