The Perfect Fat Loss Day

I know I’m not alone when I say that there have been many times when I’ve sat down, shaken my head, and wished my dieting day had gone better. That’s not to say I’m dieting 365 out of the year; in fact, the majority of the time, I’m either maintaining my weight and focusing on performance goals temporarily or I’m intentionally putting on some muscle mass. But I’m human. I certainly don’t condone using that as an excuse for folks to slack off and give half-assed effort in their endeavors. Try as we might, however, it’s neither realistic nor healthy to expect to be perfect 100% of the time.

“Go hard or go home” is not really a philosophy I live by anymore. I think the absolute-or-nothing mentality has a tendency to set people up for failure. Instead, I maintain high standards but allow plenty of space for flexibility in my life.

The Sexification of Sohee Lee: Part II

Hey folks! This update is long overdue. I know, I know – I was supposed to do this last Saturday. But an impromptu trip to Hawaii left me with no choice but to push this back. So here it is.

Over the past three weeks, to say that I’ve been busy would be an understatement. As I wrap up the end of the academic quarter, I feel like things have only been speeding up. And try as I might, I’ve been going to bed later and later. Getting to the gym has been more of a hassle than usual. Take last week, for instance. I was only able to get to the gym twice before I hauled myself over to Honolulu. My last day there, I decided that I wanted to get in at least one more quality workout, so given the usual limited hotel gym equipment, I did some Tabata-style front squats with 20lbs in each hand (these things are deceivingly hard) followed up with some steady state cardio. Gasp, oh no she didn’t! Oh yes I did. You see, as anti-cardio as I may seem, I think they do have their place. When it comes down to doing absolutely nothing vs. a little bit of cardio, the latter is preferable. Having gone to the gym only twice, I figured I could use a little more movement.

The Sexification of Sohee Lee: Part I

It’s been a while since I’ve worked with a formal coach. I haven’t paid someone to tell me what to eat and what to lift in a number of months. This past December, Rog and I got to talking – what if we became each other’s accountability partners?

Fast forward to today, and we’ve agreed to take it one step further. I guess in a way, we’ll be making the whole Internet our accountability partner. You. Keeping eyes on us.

So what’s going on in my world?
