  • Let's Get This Party Started

    Let's Get This Party Started Now that the holidays are over, and leftovers are depleted, I'm ready to pick back up my healthier routine and get this party started.  I tell you what, the holidays are the worst temptation time for me, especially on a carb level.  Stuffing is probably one of my most prized indulgences, seconded by Pumpkin Pie and what my Alabaman Grandmother called "Yankee Pudding" (which is essentially just crackers and gravy).  Not to mention my father is very old-fashioned, so holiday cookies are a must in the house around this time. In addition to holiday food, I went t...

    Keeping My Eye on the Goal While Sick Is everyone and their cousin sick these days? Here I am starting this New Years ReVolution, and I have what I can only guess is a severe cold or possibly the flu.  In fact, my whole household has it.  When talking to a doctor New Years Eve, they said their patient input has quadrupled in the last week due to the amount of sickness going around.  This does not bode well for New Years Resolutions, that's for sure.  The weird part is, once I get sick, that's when I have the most desire to work-out.

Starting a New Workout Routine When I plan on beginning a new workout plan, I always have a warm-up week to attest where my strength is, what weights I should start at for each lift, and how far I’ve let my cardio slip.

  • Really..What is the Point of the Scale?

    Really..What is the Point of the Scale?   Now I know, initially when I was 437 pounds, the scale meant a LOT.  It meant I weighed the same amount as a mature male gorilla!  Go ahead, laugh.  It's ridiculous.  I've been there, and anyone else who is reading this who has been that heavy can know that I relate to them. I have a friend, the same friend who has introduced me to the paleo diet, who has convinced me that maybe the scale isn't such a big deal.  Or rather, it's just not an accurate representation of weight or health.  The reason I say this, is she shows me before and after pictur...

  • Back on the Mat…and It Feels So Good

    Back on the Mat…and It Feels So Good If you’ve read my previous blogs, you’d know about the fighting background I come from. If you haven’t, here’s a quick explanation. For the last 7 years, my life has revolved around wrestling. Not the stuff you see on TV (though that is slightly entertaining from time to time) but actual collegiate and Olympic style wrestling. Wrestling is a sport that ultimately consumes you, mainly because, above all else, it requires complete commitment of your heart, soul, and spirit.

  • Synephrine HCL for Fat Loss

    Synephrine HCL for Fat Loss Losing weight, more specifically body fat, is often described as the hardest simple thing you'll ever do. Surely you know the basic formula is for the amount of energy your body takes in to be less than the energy your body puts out. When you take in more energy in the forms of calories, especially quickly burned calories like sugars, than you exert, the energy is stored in the body as fat.
