Today I lifted weights. Or maybe since I am in such an 80s mood today (more on that later) I should say…I pumped some iron. This is incredibly new to me. I’ve done countless squats in my life, for example (most of them in June) but never with actual weights before. Continue reading
There, I said it. I want abs.
That may be the weirdest thing to come out of my mouth so far this year. I have never been that guy, never really even thought about it before. Although I am reminded of that strange episode in Year 8 when a girl in my class asked to see my six-pack. Continue reading
Last night I went to the WWE live event in Sydney. Seeing the show come to town is such a different experience than the endurance challenge that is sitting through WWE’s weekly TV shows, with all of the talking, production, overbooking and bullshit that goes along with it.

Instead I shall focus on some good old fashioned bodyweight exercises.
The big day! For the uninitiated, the MS Walk and Fun Run is held every year to raise money for sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis, the “invisible disease” with no known cure that affects thousands of Australians and millions around the world. I went into my personal connection with MS back on Day 57. So really no kidding, this was a big day.
I’m back baby! Back to report on a thing that actually began back on Day 108, Saturday. That was the day I decided to eat and drink nothing but actual food. (I think torturing myself with junk food deprivation was some kind of literary penance for not writing anything for almost a month.) Continue reading
