And on That Note…

Yesterday, we talked about the map labeling ‘sconsin peeps as fatties and Packer fans. Heh. This got me and the Bigg guy talking. If we ate with reckless abandon, not giving one shit how the food we eat affects our health; just eating what tastes yummy; or makes us happy; or however else we’ve allowed food to control our lives…here’s our list:

Grilled Cheese Sammiches (yes, it’s #1 for  a reason.)

Dairy Queen (all of it.)

Pancakes/French Toast/Waffles (basically anything that serves as the vehicle to eat syrup by the bucketfull)

Chocolate Chip cookies (oooooooh, I miss cookies.)

Biscuits and Gravy (ooooooooh, the bigg guy misses Biscuits and Gravy.)

Fettuccine Alfredo (thick and gooey with garlic bread. NomNomNom)

PB&J sammiches on white Wonder bread.

Starbucks coffee shakes (that was the Bigg guy, I think they’re nasty.)

Red Lobster (again, Bigg guy. Yuck)

Peanut Butter toast with lots of butter. (When I’m feeling completely run down and have recognized that I haven’t rewarded myself in any way with something scrumptious, this is my go to.)

Breakfast pastries (European food. What happens in Lithuania, stays in Lithuania.)

Donuts (all of them)/Baked Goods/Kringle

Snicker Bar

S’mores (we make smores like this…)

Pizza Rolls

Little Debbie snack cakes and Nutty Bars

Carbonated Sugar Drinks

Dessert: French Silk Pie and Carrot Cake

Potato Chips: Sour Cream and Onion Pringles and Nacho Cheese Doritos

Bologna sammiches with Kraft cheese like substance slices on white bread with Mayo (ahhhhhh, memories of college.)

There has to be more but this is a good start to the list.

Psssst…if these items are regulars on your diet…you eat like crap and probably haven’t really tasted food in years. We’re sad for you.

What’s wrong with extreme dieting and hard-core fitness plans is that they don’t take into account the rest of your life.

About tosabarbell

For training opportunities at tosabarbell, call or text Juli at 320-296-9313. e-mail to At tosabarbell, I build relationships cultivated in a strength and learning environment. There is no 12 week magic pill program to strength but rather a lifetime commitment to be the very best and most useful human you can be. tosabarbell is a private, home grown gym with three lifting platforms; squat rack; prowlers; throwing implements; bars, bumpers and everything else needed for an effective strength and conditioning program. Straightforward barbell programming including the Olympic lifts; sound (read: not fancy bullshit) diet advance for weight gain or loss; and strong coaching will ensure you will meet your goals such as becoming stronger, more explosive, and better conditioned. I have been coaching teams and athletes for over 30 years. I grew up participating in various sports at various levels but was always drawn to those that require strength training. I have multiple local, national, and world records in the sports of Weightlifting and Highland Games Heavy Events as well as a combined total of 5 World Championships. My 5 years of training and coaching under Mark Rippetoe provided a wide range of influence from some of the top strength & conditioning and throwing coaches in the country. I will strongly encourage tosabarbell athletes to compete (and prepare you to do so.) However, tosabarbell is also for those who wish to be stronger and go through life feeling better. Matt WanAt is a retired Professional Strongman who competed frequently with Strongman Champions League in Europe. He played a year of D1 football with Iowa before concentrating on his Chemical Engineering degree in Iowa City. He is a native of Wauwatosa and still remains a staunch supporter of Tosa East. This blog will be a mixture of strength notes, coaching and nutrition tips, personal shit; bacon delicacies, and a whole lot of fun.
