Nothing Works! Finally, a Solution!


If you’re like me, you’re a “Triple F:” “Fat, Frustrated, and Fretting!”

I’ve tried everything when it comes to losing weight:

  • Not sticking to a moderate diet.
  • Not understanding the difference between a “tip” and a “scientific fact.”
  • Not doing my research on any plan I undertake.
  • Not stopping to question the weight-loss products I spent lots of money on.
  • Not taking the time to educate myself and instead taking any advice that promised a solution.
  • Not assuming any responsibility for my failures.

Nothing worked!  Can you believe it?!

Idiots Have Money And It Sucks


Unless you just really lucked out after you got out of college, chances are you had to work in a crappy job for at least a little while.  You knew you were hugely over-qualified, ate shit from customers, and drove around in some junker you bought in high school or during your freshmen year of college.

Dropping Weights is Uncalled for, Crossfit


Caveat: Anyone who lifts knows that there are some instances where dropping happens; you can’t complete a squat and need to fall into the supports, your grip fails on a dead lift, you can’t finish a power clean with heavy weight, and obviously all the lifts where set-downs are potentially dangerous (snatch) etc.  That isn’t what I’m talking about.

I’m not a proponent of Crossfit, but I wouldn’t knock it.

I went over my opinion of Crossfit on the whole a while ago.  The TL;DR gist is: “If it gets you into self improvement, and you enjoy it, then there is no harm and you can make solid progress.  However, it does encourage some sloppy/annoying habits.”

One of those obnoxious habits is the accepted practice of slamming weights to the ground regardless of the weight or movement.
