My Daughter Out Ran Me, Teach Kids Health and Fitness

I recently wrote about how my wife kicked my butt in a some sprints. I guess it runs in the family because my 3 year old daughter out did me too. Ugh, I don’t know if I should be embarrassed or proud. What the heck, I’m gonna go with being proud. I had just finished [...]

I’m Done with Weekly Weigh-Ins and the Scale

I am officially done weighing-in on a weekly basis. After last Monday’s disappointing weigh-in where I only lost 1 lb, I have decided to stop focusing on the scale. Not reaching my goal of being under 300 lbs on Monday hit me real hard. I had been expecting to reach that milestone and when I [...]

Sad Day in the Fat Man House: Only 1.3 Lbs Lost

Yes folks, I am extremely disappointed. Today is a sad day in the Fat Man Unleashed household. I am semi-depressed actually. I weighed-in today at 301 lbs… That’s right. Only 301 lbs. That means I only lost 1.3 lbs. last week. While losing any amount is good, I was really hoping to break the 300 [...]

Missed My Weigh-In This Week

I totally forgot that I had to weigh-in Monday morning. I’m used to my weekly weigh-ins being on Wednesdays, so when I woke up this morning I went about my business. I finally remembered halfway through the day and decided that it would be best to just skip this week. I don’t want to mess [...]

Consistent Weekly Weight Loss: 1 More Pound Lost

Consistent weight loss is where it’s at. For me at least. As long as I keep seeing that scale drop on a weekly basis, I am satisfied. Now, I only lost one pound which is 4 off of my 5 pound goal for the week, but I will take it and run. That makes me [...]

Uh, uh, uh. And another pound bites the dust. And another pound bites, and another pound bites, and another pound bites the duuuust. I’ve lost another pound since getting back on track with my eating. A pound is a pound. Like my high school football coach used to say, “A win is a win.” I [...]

This Weigh-in is a Huge Disappointment

Last week I confessed about not having been eating properly. I haven’t weighed myself in a very long time. I finally weighed myself today, it was not a pretty sight. I’m extremely disappointed with the number I saw on the scale. I clocked in at 320 lbs. That sucks! Big time. I gained back over [...]

Health Magazines Sorta Suck: Video Blog

It’s been a while since I posted a video blog. In this weeks version I go over the special “ad reports” that are found within health and fitness magazines. These fake articles trick you into thinking they are articles only to shove a product down your throat as you find yourself enjoying what you read. [...]

Fasting Diet: No Food, All Water

I have decided to test my inner strength by undergoing a grueling fasting diet. I won’t be eating anything and will only be drinking water and possibly green tea. I will however take a multi vitamin each morning. This isn’t something I am used to so it should prove to be a challenge. Why am [...]

A Benefit of Losing Weight: Fitting Into an Airplane Seat

I generally dislike traveling via airplane. Sitting in the same position for too long isn’t something I enjoy. I also don’t like uncomfortably sitting in a seat that’s made for someone half my size. I don’t know if it’s me, but are airplane seats shrinking? It seems like every time I take a new flight [...]

Pushing Around a 5500 lb. Car

Car pushing can help build muscle and strength in ways you never would have imagined. I first came across car pushing and pulling while watching The World’s Strongest Man competition on ESPN as a kid. It can help train your body in ways that conventional weights, exercises, and machines can’t. It’s also a great total [...]

I am so glad that I can workout again. I haven’t been able to lift any weights since my appendix surgery in December. I wanted to and felt I could, but my doctor told me to lay off until January. Well, it’s January dammit and I’m back with a vengeance! There is nothing like lifting [...]
