I’m getting to the end of Phase 1 of Lean & Strong, y’all! If you haven’t been following along, I’m doing an experiment to try to find out what has been causing my weight gain, since I’ve gained about 20 pounds over the last several years.

Break is over, people! I gave the site a fresh new look and changed my tag line. This… Continue reading I’m back!
