Who Wants to Be King, Week 4

So last week wasn't easy. I'm a stress eater and have been my whole life ... and to say I was stressed last week is an understatement. Having to deal with the death of my Gran was harder on me than I realized it would be so my week was spent thinking about sodas and … Continue reading Who Wants to Be King, Week 4

Who Wants to Be King, Week 3

It's bi-weekly weigh-in time and I'm happy to report that I'm still down overall but I've put some of my water weight back on and I'm feeling great -- thank the gods! I was able to (mostly) get through all of last week's workouts with no interruptions save for some of the running, which is … Continue reading Who Wants to Be King, Week 3

Who Wants to Be King, Week 2

Holy crap, y'all. What a week. It appears I'm well on my way to hitting my weight-loss goal in a hurry. Not because this program is really that good but mostly because of that damned sickness last week. I've dropped a lot of weight this week but make no mistake -- it wasn't quality poundage. … Continue reading Who Wants to Be King, Week 2

Happy New Year to Me, I Guess?

I was hesitant to do the 10-year challenge thing at first because it's usually just not something I'd normally do anyway but I also figured I'd have a hard time finding a photo that's 10 years old. When I realized I could just look on Facebook I was then struck with the alarming realization that … Continue reading Happy New Year to Me, I Guess?

Ain’t No Impossible

I'm taking a brief break from Mount Crushmore to talk about something that I hope you all find inspirational / motivational.

Sometimes if something from it hits me just right, I share it … Continue reading Ain’t No Impossible

The Weekly Thing 11/26

Alright, so we made it through Thanksgiving. My holiday consisted of me helping my girlfriend's family make mashed potatoes, tricking her dog into staying upstairs away from the guests and eating so much that I hated myself and spent the remainder of the afternoon piled up in a comfy chair holding my belly. I didn't … Continue reading The Weekly Thing 11/26

State of the Viking Freak Address

Happy November, weirdos. October went by like a flash and we're now on the holiday road. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbL3NfWJUQs The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are changing colors, it's (apparently) tornado season in East Tennessee and countless desks at the office have bowls of leftover Halloween candy on top of them. That All Hallow's Eve remnants … Continue reading State of the Viking Freak Address

REAL TALK — Be Proud of What You’re Proud Of

At 5:30 this morning it was already uncomfortably humid. I had my short shorts on and an ELEV8 Nutrition shirt that's two sizes too big with the sleeves cut out covering the rest of my body (sort of). I was headed to the park to get in my scheduled run for the day -- 5 … Continue reading REAL TALK — Be Proud of What You’re Proud Of
