Sunday, October 20, 2019 - Welcome, guest user!

I have a lot of food (picture); Excited about my BULK!

Yesterday’s trip to Costco for my most of my 2008 bulking proteins was very successful – perhaps a little too successful. My shopping list was already pretty crazy, but I wound up buying even more than I’d planned to. The only things I couldn’t get at Costco were the 96% lean ground beef and the brown rice. Lisa can get those things at our local grocery store, so we’ll just purchase them weekly. Other than… [Read more]

Massive shopping list; Upcoming bulk thoughts.

I think I’m going to relax my diet a bit for the holiday weekend. I want to enjoy some burgers on the grill when our family comes over tomorrow, have some popcorn while we all watch a movie, and at some point this weekend I’d also like to take Lisa out to our favorite Mexican restaurant (which is something we’ve not done in quite awhile!) I know all this is going to leave me looking… [Read more]

Forum upgrades completed; Search feature for non-members; Sore; Proteins.

The forum software upgrades were completed successfully and without issue yesterday morning. Prior to this software update a few of you were getting an error message that indicated you need to wait “x” amount of time between searches, even if you’d already waited that amount of time. While this bug only affected a very few members (I could not reproduce it, but still reported it to the developers as a bug), I’m pleased to inform… [Read more]

Forum software upgrade this morning.

I think I’m going to have time to upgrade the forum software this morning before work, so this is going to be a very short update. I expect the upgrade to take 1-2 hours, and the forums will be down during most of this time. While the forum is down you will see a message indicating what’s happening along with an estimated time of completion. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience the downtime causes…. [Read more]

Cardio today; Forum software upgrade imminent; Turtle update.

Today I’ll be doing some afternoon HIIT cardio. Right now I’m carrying a little extra fat, but I’m not concerned with fat loss – I’m focused on building strength up for my upcoming bulk. The only reason I’m doing cardio at all right now is to keep my cardiovascular system in decent shape. As I mentioned yesterday, my weight training for the next month will primarily consist of compound and Olympic lifts using low (4-6)… [Read more]

Massive water shed; Pre-bulk workouts; Poor Lisa; Turtle has cancer.

I mentioned yesterday that I put on a little over 10 pounds during the four short days of the JSF cruise. As I also mentioned yesterday, I was on vacation the rest of last week after we returned from the cruise, and continued to eat whatever I felt like (mostly what I’d consider junk foods). Despite eating tons of buttered popcorn, BBQ, hamburgers and french fries, I still lost two pounds of my post-cruise water… [Read more]

Back from JSF cruise, pictures and video.

The JSF cruise to the Bahamas was a massive success! Everyone who went had an incredible time, and we’re already talking about next year’s annual get-together (more on that later in this update). I know you all are anxious to check out the pictures, watch the videos and read the stories. There is a ton of material in the Official 2008 JSF Cruise Pictures and Videos Thread. Please keep in mind that there is some… [Read more]

I’m on vacation; The 2008 JSF cruise sets sail for the Bahamas this week!

It’s almost time for the JSF cruise, and Lisa and I are getting really excited! My mom and her friend are coming all the way from Texas to house-sit and stay with the dogs while we are gone. My mom and her friend will be here a few days before we set sail, so I’m looking forward to hanging out and spending some time with them. Once I return from the cruise I’ll be on… [Read more]

Quick update, lots to do today.

I’m going to have to make this a quick update this morning, as I’ve got a very busy day ahead. This is the last weekend before the JSF cruise, and I’ve got about a million things on my “to do” list. I’d planned to do some LISS cardio this morning, but I just don’t have time to get it done, so I’m going to try and sneak a 16-minute HIIT cardio session in sometime this… [Read more]

Is it hard to learn how to lose fat?

I’m down another pound as of this morning (2.4 pounds total for the week), and this morning Lisa is down another 1.4 pounds (3.4 pounds for the week – a little much, but I think she was holding more water than I was). As I mentioned yesterday, the only change we made after being stalled for a couple of weeks is we eliminated alcohol. I knew it would work, but Lisa was skeptical: she didn’t… [Read more]
