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.

Holy cow. We haven't done a Weekly Thing in what seems like forever. But just like I noted in my State of the Viking Freak Address, it's time to go again. Or, in the words of a famous philosopher I once knew -- We're back just like we said we'd be back. You can leave … Continue reading The Weekly Thing 11/19

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

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
