The Great Pug Adventure

By |

Today I wanted to share a little anecdote from my evening last night, because it was quite the event.

After wrapping up at the local “Beakers and Beer” networking / free beer with my co-workers, I arrived home just like any other evening. I wrapped up my phone call with a collaborator  while grabbing the mail, […]

When “Om” sounds like “Ow”

By |

I’m in a period of pre-training right now. My eight-week training guide for the April 5k doesn’t start officially until the second week of February, so I’m taking this opportunity to ease back into working out. I never stopped, per se, but I was definitely not working out three times a week, or running on […]

A tangential goal for a Tuesday: I’ve forgotten how to read

By |

When I think about the community that 2 Fat Nerds has become, I realize that it is so much more than a weight-loss blog, or a running blog, or even a fitness-in-general blog. It has become a space to share goals and aspirations, and a means to encourage accountability for your personal promises.

One of my […]

81 Days to B.A.A. 5k: Leave the iphone at home

By |

Every time I run I try to find a way to distract myself so I somehow forget that I’m running. I have been moderately successful. Sometimes music works, sometimes putting on a good podcast will work as well. But neither of those work all the time, or for an entire run, and my dependence on […]

Chick Pea and Vegetable Curry

By |

This week Mike and I have been taking part in a 5 day cleanse that we stole from a good friend of ours who tried it and liked it. We figured, “heck why not, it’s a new year and what do we have to lose?” and gave it a whirl. Mike and I made quite […]

And it’s official: BAA Distance Medley 2014

By |

I am officially committed to training my butt off for the next 9 months. 

 

What did I do directly after registering to run three races? Bought 6 donuts accidentally. 

Weigh-In Wednesday January 22nd: Bombogenesis Struck Me Down

EDIT: The percentage graph has been updated as yesterday’s was an older version.

Here at 2 Fat Nerds each Wednesday is a Weigh-In day, where all of the data from the previous week is collected, displayed, and analyzed. If anyone is interested in taking part in weekly tracking, leave a comment! This it the first weigh-in […]

Bombogenesis . . . srsly pompom?

By |

I understand the need to produce catchy headlines and draw in readers in an extremely crowded and competitive digital media market . . .  but Bombogenesis . . . really? This is literally an article title.
Old Man Winter to Drop Bombogenesis
I was willing to let Polar Vortex slide because it had a nice ring to it, […]

Potato Leek Soup

By |

I was finally able to break open my new Cuisinart Immersion Blender that Jono and Ellie gave me for Christmas for this weeks recipe. Not only does it blend, it also serves as a power whisker and chopper! Wow, what a great tool.  Definitely a powertool for the kitchen! Word to the wise, when blending, […]
