Arnold Schwarzenegger is Kicking My Ass!

AArnold Schwarzenegger's Blueprint couple of weeks ago, a guy at the checkin desk at 24 Hour Fitness in Redmond asked me “what (body parts) are you working on today?”.  I had to think about it for a second, and simply replied “a little bit of everything”.  I’ve been writing down my workouts for a long time, but since I won my bet with Stacia and gained 21 pounds in 20 days, I’ve really been mostly working on abs and general conditioning.

Excuses or Results? You Cannot Have Both!

Excuses or Results Not Both

I have a sadly misguided Facebook friend who is on a “die-it’ a friend of hers convinced her to go on.  I presume the friend’s purpose of this die-it is to sell some kind of ‘nutritional’ products that my FB friend does not need.  My FB friend is very proud of losing her first pound […]

If you’ve read my last couple of posts here, I had a bet with my girlfriend – and I won the bet easily, BUT I lost my 6 pack abs in the process.  I know they are there somewhere – I just cannot see them (except in my mind and old photos). We’ve recently scheduled […]

Last night I weighed in at 190 lbs, reaching the goal for my bet with @StaciaLoo. She had bet me that she could get to her target weight of 130 lbs from 149 lbs faster that I could get to 185 lbs from the 169 lbs I started at. I knew I would win – […]

Eating Like a Pig is Hard Work

Wow – I cannot believe that eating like a pig is such hard work – and it’s expensive and make’s me tired. Nonetheless, I am committed to winning my #Fit2Fat bet with Stacia Loo.  For the last three days I’ve eaten 1.5 quarts of ice cream, pizzas, huge amounts of protein shakes with raw eggs […]

Fit to Fat Update: Gross Grocery Photo

Fit to Fat Grocery Shopping

This morning after hitting the gym (Redmond 24 Hour Fitness), I stopped at Safeway to buy some groceries as I often do after working out. But today was a little different because of the Fit to Fat bet I have with Stacia Loo.  Instead of buying the same normal handful of clean eating items as […]

JoeAbs Fit to Fat Bet with Stacia Loo

This video is about a bet my girlfriend Stacia Loo mistakenly made with me – and why I am no longer eating clean until after I win the bet. I guess she did not realize that I will do anything to WIN! I just stopped eating clean yesterday, but have gained 6 pounds in the […]

Beware of Eating Out – Even at Places Like Taco Time That Claim to Be Healthy

Salt Kills

Since I started eating clean nearly 3 years ago, there are very few places that I would consider eating out at – except of course for ‘cheat’ meals. Until yesterday, one exception was Taco Time here in the Pacific Northwest.  Some time ago, they came out with a ‘Fit Hit’ menu that is only supposed […]

I Cheat Every So Often: New Year’s Eve Cakes

New Years Eve cakes

Even a clean eater has to cheat once in awhile – one cannot always eat totally clean ….  For the past few years I have traditionally spoiled myself on New Year’s Eve by eating a Deluxe (double cheese burger gut bomb), french fries and a chocolate shake at Dick’s Drive-In and was looking forward to […]
