The last chapter…

I’m not gonna let this destroy me. Take full responsibility for your life. The last chapter of your life hasn’t been written yet. Don’t give up, don’t give in. There is always an after to everything.

Half a Century

There is a running joke going through my mind. I thought getting old would take longer. There is more truth to that than I would like to admit. I am not ready for getting old and although I don’t necessarily feel old my cardiologist and physician beg to differ. I am, from the outside, quite […]

On Being An Adult

I posted this on Facebook this morning but I can’t resist putting it here too. The last 2 in the list are my own personal addition. You never really feel like an adult inside. I am still fumbling through life and making the best of it like I was at 15. No matter how well […]

I’m Coming Back… To Keto.

I have decided after watching a very interesting 21 day keto experiment (shout out to Jason Wittrock) on YouTube that I will return to pure keto from targeted keto and see how it goes. I did do pure keto for a very long time but I have a feeling that I was going way too […]

Summer Wind Down (my rest month)

Its the time of year where I take a bit of time to heal, to let my heavy lifting of the summer get behind me and take some time to do some ancillary work and cardio. I tend to lift pretty heavily during the summer, and almost exclusively certain exercises that eventually leads me to […]

Half Way Done

I had to laugh when I re-read my last post, my optimism about my weight was so cute… When I decided I needed to cut a bit again it was because at work I had weighed in for the Biggest Loser contest at a whopping 248lbs. Being that close to 250 was a real wake […]

Hold On. This Isn’t Going To Be Pretty. But You Need To Hear This.

Sometimes I feel like this. It’s no big secret that I think today’s adults are just whiny petulant children who need a good slap to set them straight. From adult colouring books to the obesity epidemic their lives are about narcissistic instant self gratification. They blame everyone else for their problems and refuse to take […]

I’m Not Good At Coasting

The last time I took 2 days completely off was May 2014. I am not sure what that says about what I have been doing or what it implies about how much rest I probably need but it’s pretty amazing. It’s also pretty frustrating. Does it point to my “coast” to the end of the […]
