Yep, the series continues as Jack sneaks off from his own amusing blog Jack Sh*t, Gettin’ Fit and shares some "behind the scenes" goings on with us here at Cranky Fitness. And note: Jack's down with the flu so you might want to wish him well and thoroughly disinfect your hands after scrolling through this post.
Welcome again, Jack!
Where were we?
Oh yeah. Even though I spend a lot of time talking diet-y over at Jack Sh*t, Gettin’ Fit, I had this really dumb idea last year to start another weight-loss blog, a super-secret little-more-serious one called Man Overboard where I didn't feel compelled to act a fool every other day.
Then I went and misremembered the password, so like my childhood pet Grapey, it died on the vine.
Anyways click here to see what you missed (nothing), and keep reading to...well...JUST KEEP READING, OKAY?
MAN OVERBOARD: GO AHEAD AND JUMP
I swear this is true...
My grandfather taught my dad (the original Big Mo) how to swim by grabbing him under the arms and unceremoniously tossing him into a lake.
Sink or swim.
He swam (though to be honest, swimming was never his favorite activity after that).
A good idea?
Well, I suppose...
I stepped on the scale this morning for the first time in quite a while and saw a number that didn't sit too well with me.
I need to make some changes.
I need to do better.
Time to sink or swim.
There's nobody who will throw me into the deep end but myself.
Time to jump.

What do you first do when you learn to swim? You make mistakes, do you not? and what happens? You make other mistakes, and when you have made all the mistakes you possibly can without drowning-and some of them many times over-what do you find? That you can swim? Well-life is just the same as learning to swim! Do not be afraid of making mistakes, for there is no other way of learning how to live!"
