First Primal Workout

Since I signed up for the Primal Blueprint Meal Plan the other day, I figured why not stick with Mark Sisson’s advice and also use his fitness program. It is all laid out in his books, The Primal Blueprint and 21 Day Total Body Transformation, both excellent reads (and apparently in need of reviews on here!).

No More Staycation!

I got good news today: my background check has gone through its first round and I can start work on Monday! Woohoo! Sadly, my extended unpaid vacation is over but I’m actually really happy about that. While it might sound nice to have all this time at home, I get super board and don’t want to do anything. I prefer being somewhat busy and having

Weight: 181 lbs

Instead of the usual 30 By 30 update this week, I’m going to talk about “the plan” for the next few weeks.

I’m obviously stuck in a rut. My workouts are a bit irregular but getting better. My nutrition is great some days and iffy to poor other days. Something drastic needs to happen. I mentioned this week that Rob and I

My New Routine: Lifting, HIIT, and Low Carb

Back when I was new to working out, I just did whatever came along.  It was hard to get started but if I had a chance to do something, that is what I did.  I started with a workout game on my Wii.  Then it changed to training for a 5K that a friend was organizing.  Then I joined a gym with a friend who
