A Weight Watchers Update

So, in mid-July I went on Weight Watchers after the Dateable Dork’s success with the program.  WTG, DD!  Here’s a mini-update from me:

I am 5’3″ and had a starting weight of 147.  I’m now at 132 and have gone from wearing a size 8 (which were tight) to wearing a size 6 (which are very loose).  I have been participating in a collaborative research study on walking for the last 6 months, and as a part of their data collection I get a physical every 3 months.  I just had my most recent one and was told that I’ve lost 4% bodyfat since June.  Without exercise.  I look so good my boyfriend now gets hard just from looking at me and has been actively encouraging me to look at engagement rings.

TGIF In Honey-Land

I hope everyone has a great Friday!  Now that my three-part Revelations series is complete (check out Parts One, Two, and Three) I can give a brief update on what’s been going on lately.

First of all, I mentioned in mid-June that I was starting Weight Watchers.  I’ve lost about 14 pounds and just this week was able to start wearing my size 4 pants again.  This makes me officially skinnier than I was when Jake and I started dating.  I remember when we started dating I’d always bring my laundry over to his place (I didn’t have machines in my apartment, which was a duplex so I’d been going to a wash and fold) and he’d do it all for me… Continued

Busy, Good Things

This will probably be a pretty anticlimactic post after yesterday’s post on stay at home moms (don’t forget to check out the huge Brazen debate that I took part in…), but I just wanted to let you all know what’s going on in my life!  Things have been extremely hectic.  I finished revising my dissertation and turned it in, so now all that stands between me and my PhD is paperwork.  Awesome!  I can’t wait to have the diploma…and my boyfriend can’t wait to call me Dr. Honey!

Also, as I mentioned, we’re moving.  It goes down this Saturday…I’ve arranged for Friday and Monday to be furlough days but I am basically going to be running around like a chicken with its head cut off during that time and won’t be able to post (won’t even have internet!) for a couple days at least.

Barack Obama Is Totally Jacked, And This Is A Good Thing

s-obama-shirtless-large

I read an article about how jacked our next president is Barack Obama’s workout habits in the Washington Post, and I thought it was fucking cool. For one, I 100% agree with his decision to incorporate 60-90′ of working out into his daily routine. If you read the article, you’ll see that he gets his gym time in WITHOUT FAIL, even when he was on the road campaigning, and that he derives a ton of benefits from working out, not the least of which is good health. You might think that the gym is a bit of a luxury, especially for the President-Elect, but I disagree and think you’re kind of a tool if you don’t want the president to hit the gym regularly. I happen to think that EVERY SINGLE person in a modern society should find the time to do some kind of sport or workout, 5-6 days per week, for their entire lives, no matter how busy you are. Presidents especially. The last thing I want is a lardass for a Commander-in-Chief who could keel over any minute from a lifetime of sitting on his ass and eating fatty foods.

Lilly’s Diet and Fitness

This is guest post from Lilly, my homeboy and wingman in Tampa. Lilly was a college athlete and he continues to take care of himself by going to the gym regularly and eating right.

Yo, Lilly here. Lance asked me to write a guest post on diet and fitness, so here it is. I’ve been exercising consistently since I was 15 years old. I’m still in good shape and I look and feel pretty damn good for being almost 32. When I was a kid, I was tall and skinny and I wanted to put some meat on my bones to get in better shape for surfing, look better for the girls, and feel better about myself. Well, I accomplished all three of those goals. Here’s what I did.

Diet

This one is going to be broken down into a number of items. For the normal person, diet is over 80% of the battle. Unless you’re Mark Wahlberg or Angelina Jolie (if you’re a chick), your diet is much more important than exercise. You are what you eat and that is a fact.
