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

JTF Mount Crushmore, an Epilogue

Well ... I wrote this and saved it as a draft but never published. Pobody's nerfect, I suppose! Done. Concluded. Executed. Fulfilled. In the past. All over but the shouting. Talking about Mount Crushmore, of course! After 12 weeks of scheduled workouts and detailed meal plans, the program (as designed) is over. Now, while I'm … Continue reading JTF Mount Crushmore, an Epilogue

JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 11

It's the penultimate week of the program so I'm buckled in to shoot for a big finish! With that said, the measurements included this week and next will be the bare minimum so I can make one last post after the program's completion that will hopefully shed some light on how good the program actually … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 11

JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 10

We're in the double digits, little freaks, which means there will only be two more weeks after this! If you've been following along, hang tight for some meaty content over the next couple of weeks. And by meaty I mean we're going to be talking about food. Like, a lot. Food and supplements. Because while … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 10

JTF’s Mount Crushmore Meal Plan: Week 5

As the fifth week of JTF's Mount Crushmore begins, so does a new meal plan. I want to start it by referencing a topic one of my favorite online trainers James Smith said in an email this week. After a brief tour in the States, the Australian-native trainer discussed how much he's looking forward to … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore Meal Plan: Week 5

JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 4

I knew I'd have to make a post like this sooner or later. Didn't realize the Easter holiday was so fast approaching when I started Mount Crushmore so it's as good a time as any to talk about something that's going to happen in your weight-loss / fitness journey: You're going to have some weeks … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 4

JTF’s Mount Crushmore Meal Plan: Week 3

Three. Three, y'all. In the last week and a half, I've spoken with three people about their nutrition because they were having some issues with their weight loss goals and/or body composition. And in each of those cases the verdict was the same -- people not eating enough. I know it sounds counterintuitive -- I … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore Meal Plan: Week 3

Friday Fitness Finds 1/12/2018

This has been the first week in over a month that I've felt amazing (physically, at least) every day. I've gotten lots of sleep, put in a lot of work at the gym and have eaten well every day with no exception. It's so freaky how the holidays have a tendency to throw us off … Continue reading Friday Fitness Finds 1/12/2018

The Weekly Thing 12/4

I mentioned in my last post that it's way important to not be a glass jaw when it comes to stepping up your game after falling off the wagon for the holidays. Did any of you fall off of said wagon? I'll be the first to tell you that not only did I fall but … Continue reading The Weekly Thing 12/4

Friday Fitness Finds 11/17

Thanksgiving is basically here, man. A week from this very moment, most of y'all will have already hit the Turkey Day leftovers several times and maybe gotten into a fist fight over a new TV at Best Buy. I hope to do at least some of that if not all of it and if you're … Continue reading Friday Fitness Finds 11/17
