Glorious Glutes at Last: My Butt is Bigger than my Belly!

Hiding in Plain Side

If you’ve ever stumbled across transformation photos of me online, you might notice a glaring lack of side view photos.

That is not by accident. It is because I was always so ashamed of the look that I never submitted the actual side view photos. I cheated it a bit by […]

Colon Health

About 6 months ago, I got very serious about my colon health and started a serious colon cleanse. You can read all about what book I read and products I used here.

The program lasted about 3 months and by the end, I have to admit that my colon felt better than it ever did.

New Squat PR

I am sure you are beyond thrilled that I have managed to hit a new PR with squats! So let me just tell you how long this has been in the making and a tiny bit of what has gone into this.

How To Load The Dishwasher

If experience pain, chances are, it’s your fault!

You’re Doing it all Wrong!

Unless you have had an injury or were born with an imbalance, I’m saying that you are causing your own problems.

Al says I shouldn’t tell […]

I consider recipes suggestions so I started here.

Here is what I did.

Colon Health Equals Health

Everybody Poops

(Didn’t REM do a song about this? No? Well anyway…)

Poor colon health is an indication of poor health.

Healthy Poop

Setbacks are the Norm, not the Exception

My Daughter Recovering from Surgery

No excuses people. None. I simply will not allow you to get away with that crap anymore!

Too Poor to Afford Good Food

When we were flat broke, our excuse for getting fat was that we could only afford pasta so we had to get fat? Oh yeah? Well […]

MetaZone System

I have been practicing the MetaZone System program for the last few months as I simultaneously worked to recover former strength levels. I was surprised to get back to my former personal best on squats while not experiencing significant muscle soreness nor injury. I am keen to continue to make strength gains in all areas […]

Bulking Experiment

Naomi used a DEXA or DXA scan to measure her results. DXA scans are used primarily to evaluate bone mineral density.

Last time I shared that I had some health setbacks; I started 2012 in the best shape of my life and ended it in much worse shape. In December I had a DEXA […]
