The title says it all. Time to take an uncompromising approach to my health, fitness, and ultimate goals. I feel like I've tried everything: Lots of cardio/little lifting, lots of lifting/little cardio, light weight/high reps, full body workouts, muscle group alternating, high carb, low carb and everything in between. Done with fads, stripping it down to the basics: Eat more and lift heavier. Oddly, something I've never tried before. Time to be accountable!

"Finishing that 5k was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I ate more fettucini and drank less water than I have in my entire life. And while I eventually puked my guts out, I NEVER puked my heart out."
