The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Sup hulk, it's good to see you back to posting.

    My condolences about your mom's passing. As you said, she is at peace and is no longer suffering. I took solace in that when my grandfather died, and I hope that this works for you also.

    Woo-hoo! Three months without a post! I should've known I wouldn't be able to keep up with this thing...

    Well, anyway, I dropped some bodyfat because I was annoyed at feeling so sluggish around 230, and I'm just not into eating so much when it's frickin' 95 degrees and humid outside. I drink a shake, go outside, and just start gagging, you know what I mean?

    So, anyway, still plugging here. I guess I've maintained most of what I had, but I have some fair cuts here and there.

    Not much else to report, but wanted to check in with the other meatheads. :-)
