www.myfitnesspal.com and was officially tracking every calorie that went into my body. I was so furious over the #SelfieSaturday picture from the week before that I was desperate. Of course now I was eating less than 1500 calories a day for almost a week so I was also starving.
In this picture from November 29th I was obviously working on my legs and torso. I know this on April 13th as I am writing this because of how I was dressed. I also at this time started a new idea which I still do today which is to work my lower torso BEFORE I work my legs. For some reason I get not only a better abdominal workout but a much better leg workout without doing as many sets or as heavy a load. I had done a "leg press" blog right after I took this photo, because I was so impressed with how well my leg press workouts were going. I was finally breaking the 175 lb barrier that I hadn't broken in years thanks to the diet regimen that I was getting. Keep in mind that the great victory on this day that I am celebrating isn't just that I am sticking to a diet for a change but I stuck to that diet on THANKSGIVING! That is as serious as it gets.

The #SelfieSaturday After Thanksgiving and the New Diet
This Is Me
I have been bouncing around online for just about 20 years, so I have been there and have done that. It doesn't mean I didn't like it and wouldn't do it again. As most humans, I am a social animal. To be a social animal on the internet it is social media that binds us all together. I prefer Google + and Twitter but have pages on the other ones that I ignore, so you probably should too.
I blog a lot. If you don't like people that blog a lot then I don't know how you got here to begin with. You may want to just move along.
Contrary to popular opinion I hate politics, but have political opinions ..
The easiest way to get under my skin is to apply the "all you talk about is politics" tag. This is a common knee jerk reaction some have when they see something political, and unfortunately I don't hold back sometimes. As a matter of fact, I share more about health, fitness and blogging than politics, which you would know if you weren't busy dismissing me. I actually follow and interact with more people that disagree with me than agree with me politically. The list of "other than politics" seems to be growing everyday and it probably looks a lot like this:
- Blogging (I am a blogger and I blog a lot. Get used to it.)
- Health & Fitness (Avid bodybuilder and diet guru)
- Photography (If I don't know your language now you know why I follow you)
- Android (I love Android, and wouldn't wipe my rear end with an iPhone)
- Humor (If you are funny, I am going to like you)
- Sports (Patriots and Red Sox mostly)
- Music (You'd be surprised how diverse I get here)
- Quotes (I love quotes from historical and hysterical figures)
