I used to weigh more than 300 pounds. For years I wanted to lose the weight but I never made it a priority. I always had an excuse or a reason why I would do it later.
Mrs. Jake and I decided to convert some of our garage space into a gym at our house and not only do we love it, we actually use it almost every day. (Weird right?)
When trying to drop weight and stay fit, I've learned (the hard way) that what I eat is just as important if not more important than the workouts that I try to get in each day. That's a major bummer because I really, really like to eat.
The holidays are upon us and for me, several extra pounds soon will be as well. So in an attempt to combat the girth that will inevitably encroach around my midsection, I’ve already begun making some adjustments to my home gym that should provide some nice core exercises.
After water, tea is the most popular drink in the world. I never knew that and when I first heard it, I was surprised but after thinking about it with more than my default American perspective, it made sense and seemed pretty obvious.
