Weigh-In Wednesday February 6, 2019: Ice in the Air!

By |

Woke up to incredibly icy streets and trees today! Be careful out there, everyone!

As per the norm here at 2 Fat Nerds, each Wednesday is a weigh-in day, where we publicly shame encourage our members to share their workouts and weight numbers for the past week. It's all about accountability, and earning those sweet anti-fat [...]

A Review of January 2019

By |

Today is the last day of the first month of 2019. To recap what my theme for 2019 is, everybody say together, consistency. I've struggled with my fitness goals and keeping my weight where I want it to be for the past few years now. With the arrival of 2019, Ellie and I set our [...]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 30th, 2019: Snow Day!!!

By |

Buffalo rarely shuts down from a snow storm, but today is one of those days. We got the message last night that the university was shutting down, and just like when I was a kid, I ran around the house screaming my head off.

Per-usual here at 2FNS, Wednesdays mean weigh-in days. Lets dive right into [...]

Lake Effect 1, Buffalo 0. Home Gym to the Rescue!

By |

I love Buffalo at the end of January. The Lake Erie monster knocks on our door step, making everyone rush home from work early and grab a six-pack of their favorite beer. Our local politicans even instruct our city's residents on how much to buy, based on the late Mayor Jimmy Griffin.

Winter arrives tonight. Nothing [...]

Understanding Heart Rate Zones

By |

The month of January has absolutely flown by, and my primary goal of being consistent has been going well. This month I was mostly focused on getting back into the routine of working out. I wasn't really focused on my times, mileage, or stats. As we head into February, consistency is still going to be [...]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 23rd, 2019: 50 to 23 . . .

By |

As the title of this post is odd, I wanted to clarify. We literally gave up 50 goals in pond hockey last night. Woof. It is a 4 on 4 format, no goalies with short nets. Typically games are about 20 to 30 goals or so . . . so we got beat bad.

Anyway, Welcome [...]

Back on Cross-Country Skis.

By |

Ever since my days at Garnet Hill as a kid, I've loved cross-country skiing. Perhaps it was the shuttle that drove you back to the lodge from the bottom, or the neatly groomed tracks, but whatever it was, I loved spending the day on my skis up in the Adirondacks. So, with snow in the [...]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 16th, 2019: A Blizzard Approaches!

By |

Hello everyone for this weeks addition of Weigh-In Wednesday! Each week members are encouraged to submit their workouts, and weight for weekly accountability as we post the results for all the world to see. Let's get right to it!

Overall, we had a mixed week. That's okay, because one bad week never hurt anyone! Consistency [...]

Zwift FTP Builder Week 3

By |

So far, so good on the Zwift front! I'm now entering week three of the FTP Builder plan, which is designed to increase my base functional threshold power. I thought now would be a good time to quickly recap the first two weeks back in the saddle, and talk about how things are going.

What I Like about Zwift

So [...]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 9th, 2019: Go Go Go!

By |

Hello Everyone! Another Wednesday is here, and you know what that means, the dreaded weigh-in! Let's just dive right in to the main event, weights over-time.

Not bad everyone! I know getting through the weekend stalled a lot of our efforts, but no one gained week-to-week! The hardest part for me personally is saying yes to [...]
