Motivation 101

  I have used every one of these excuses before to not work out.  This video is very motivational.  Sometimes we have to stop BS’n ourselves out of doing those things that we know we should be doing.  Stop the excuses and “JUST DO IT.”

Weigh-In Day

  This week I actually gained 2 lbs. from last week.  I expected that to happen because I added a creatine supplement to my diet.  One of the effects of creatine is water weight gain.  So far I’m o.k with the amount of muscle I’m gaining; however, I want to expedite the fat loss. I […]
