W8 Loss Wednesday #8 - No Pain, No Gain

I know, it's Friday...

This week, Fury helps me illustrate the concept of "No Pain, No Gain." This is also the last W8Loss Wednesday that I will be doing for a few weeks, because I'm off to China on business until the last week of June. I'd love to do an on-location edition, but the government bans all video hosting sites (it's quite sad to know that 1 billion people are deprived of the dramatic gopher). I will try to keep up with posting, however. This blog is in fact banned/blocked in China but I have a workaround, so fear not! Until then, enjoy this video:

W8 Loss Wednesday #7 - The Goofus and Gallant Edition

Sometimes it's more effective to show you how NOT to do something. At least that's what I tell myself when I fall off the wagon. But cut me some slack. I was at a conference all last week, and it was Memorial Day Weekend too.

But I've got a good one for you this week. There's a personal thank you to one genuinely awesome friend, blogger and radio host extraordinaire, Soapbox Mom from Fury, and I also have a special guest joining me on location at Dave and Buster's: the lovely and talented Miss, author of one of my favorite reads, Rura and Miss.

I know, I know, I misspelled Gallant in the movie title on the video and forgot to credit Billy Joel for this week's musical selection. Not worth the re-do. And it's Thursday.

W8 Loss Wednesday #6 - A Ride-Along and a Movie (plus bonus!)

This was a light week, which meant I got heavier. I have to first read the Buff Dad book before I can apply it, right? So that's all I did up until Sunday. I started the Buff Dad program in earnest on Monday. That means Fury saves the day again by producing his own movie for your enjoyment: Playmobil: The Ultimate Battle.

And for those of you who missed it (which is pretty much everyone, since BlogTalkRadio was having technical difficulties during our broadcast!), I have the recorded version of my radio interview from Soapbox Radio. Soapbox Mom told me last night that there were actually 22 callers waiting on the line trying to talk to me! And I know a bunch of you hung out in the chat room waiting an entire hour for the sound to come on. WOW. I DO feel like a rockstar. Thank you ALL, whoever you are! (and it was totally cool that Secret Agent Mama and Kimmylyn did manage to get through). And if that didn't convince you to waste a good hour listening to me talk about myself, Mr Lady joins us for the last 15 minutes or so. And she reveals the origins of her name (I knew that would convince you).

W8 Loss Wednesday #4 - The Return of Fury

After much negotiation, management has reached a tentative agreement with Fury, who had earlier in the week initiated a general strike against W8 Loss Wednesday and its subsidiaries. We are happy to say that he is back. For now.

W8Loss Wednesday - Into the Fray I Go

For those of you who have been keeping up with W8Loss Wednesday over at PG's AnnoyinglyBoring and Scott Townsend's W8LossWednesday blogs, you may have noticed that it's been a 2-man race for the past 3 months. That's because I was extremely successful at convincing myself that I didn't need no stinkin' competition to keep me in shape. Well if I was doing so well, this wouldn't have happened:

Fury is watching TV in our room as I pass by, looking for a T-shirt.
“Hey dad you look strong!”

Flexing juuust a little, I turn around.
“Thanks Fury!”

“...and fat in the front.”

 Wait up guys! Right behind ya...
