As the Fat Turns…

That’s a random title if I ever saw one! I just liked the way it sounded and wanted to post something real quick since it’s been a while. Things have been extremely busy, so I have neglected blogging for a while. I finally have things under control, I think, and will be able to blog [...]

Guy Things To Do Before You Die

Lazy College Kid with No Workout Routine

I know this college kid that is extremely lazy when it comes to working out. He doesn’t do any kind of exercise and wishes that he was muscular and diesel. The guy can’t even do one push up! Don’t get me wrong, when I first started out I couldn’t do any push ups either. I [...]

Am I Too Fat for Health Insurance?

Last night I rented the movie SiCKO by Michael Moore. I had heard about it a few months ago but didn’t think to go see it at the theater. I usually deem movies DVD worthy then wait for their release to rent them via Block Buster Video. Anyway, I knew what it was about and [...]

Losing Comment Spam, Gaining Comments

I have officially received over 1000 spam comments. Luckily I enabled Askimet early on and it has blocked a majority of them. I guess my blog is not only helping me lose fat, but spam too. Darned spammers boil my blood. That’s pretty darned sweet if you ask me. I have also broken the 1000 [...]

Don’t Ignore the Man Boobs on My Chest

Lose Weight, Gain Dirty Laundry

It’s been a few weeks since I started this whole lifestyle change and one thing I noticed was that my dirty laundry has grown tremendously.

Sleeping is the IT thing on Saturday

I woke up today at about 2 PM. That means that I slept for about 14 hours. Damn. That’s a lot of sleep. I only do it on Saturdays. I think it’s because I am so drained from the week so my body tries to make up for it on the weekend. It always shocks [...]

My Underwear Cuts into My Fat
