Tricks To Losing More Weight After You Seem To Hit A Wall
It's been awhile since I've talked about my workout regimen. At first it seemed like I lost a lot of weight. I was doing daily cardio at Billings Athletic Club and dropped 15 pounds (from 245 to 230) in my first 5 weeks. Over the next 3 months I dropped another 10 pounds despite adding a w…
A Sign That Diet And Exercise Does Work
I'll spare you the graphic details but I was in the men's room here at work just a few minutes ago when I had a "eureka" moment... always a bad way to start a sentence but this isn't bad, I promise. After I finished watering the lilies and re-fastened my belt it felt…

The Best Meal I Ever Had
I have to issue a disclaimer... while the meal I ate last night was tasty, it's not the best I've EVER had. At the moment it seemed like it though. See, I've been diligently working out for the last 17 days and so far have lost 7 lbs. I can have about 2350 calories and maintain my cur…
I’ve Become A Workout Fiend
Okay, maybe that's a bit overstated but I've been faithfully hitting the recumbent bike at Billings Athletic Club for 5 whole days now for an average of about 50 minutes per day. I've been working the Life Circuit and I feel much better already.
10 Clever Ways to Drop Those Excess Holiday Pounds
The holidays are behind us and perhaps the only thing more disappointing than the awful gift from your Aunt Beatrice — seriously, a tie? — is the fact all the eating you did is starting to show in what used to be your washboard abs.
If you see more numbers when you step on the scale than you do when …
