Wow, I'm unoriginal - and can no longer say I'm a diehard fan after the second movie...
Been lurking for a while, and lifting for only slightly longer (bout a year now). Would love to shed a couple pounds or ten, while making strength gains at the same time, but don't we all. I don't currently own a scale - I think it's bad for the soul - but I'm small-ish with a Napoleon complex as a result of having a best (girl) friend who's 6'2, and little baby carnie hands. Slightly less carnie-ish now that I've managed to callus them up a bit.
I've lived in New York for roughly 4 months now, so I'm still a newbie. I HAVE learned that La Caverna is the devil and that the Sunburnt Calf is the greatest brunch spot on earth.
Mostly I want to use this blog to keep myself honest - the goal is to keep diet in check (just started IF) and make it to the gym 4 - 5 days a week.
