Baden Powell from Lynn Valley to Grouse Mountain

On Sunday, Crystal, myself and a friend did our second significant hike of the season. It was a long day but we had a great time, got some exercise and spent some time out of the city (without actually being too far from the city). Research Crystal and I are pretty keen to push our […]

Low Carb Final Check-In

Well, the two-week trial is over and I lost a total of 2 kilograms (about 4.5 pounds). The crazy hunger-pangs haven’t been bothering me since about day eight. I’m hoping that means my body is adapting to use stored fat as energy instead of just soaking up the easy calories I was consuming. Several people have […]

Low Carb Day Ten

Things are still going well with the new diet. I’ve dropped just over two kilograms so far and my energy level is great. I don’t know if it should be attributed to low-carbs, no alcohol or something else entirely, but my productivity over the last few weeks has been exponentially greater. Back in January it […]

Low Carb Day Five

Still on track with the diet and feeling great. I’ve lost just over one kilogram so far. That’s not a whole lot, but the decrease seems consistent enough that I’m comfortable attributing it to the diet change. Energy levels are still very good. Not missing the afternoon crashes at all. I find that I’m hungry […]

Low Carb Check-In

The problem is that once your body has adapted to the program you’re on, your return on energy invested starts to drop. In order to keep making […]

Baby Steps

After more than 4 years away, I didn’t really plan my return to the gym. One morning I just got up and decided to go and see how the one in my building looked. At the time I didn’t have any expectations beyond a single workout. I was already feeling pretty good thanks to a […]

New Habits

Had a request for my workout routine so I thought I’d devote a couple of posts to it. I actually started “working out” almost two years ago. At that point, I didn’t feel like it was realistic to fit the gym into my schedule. Instead, I decided to try and build fitness into my daily […]

Going Strong

Still struggling with the regular blog posts, but life is otherwise pretty smooth. My novel is coming along at the rate of a few pages a day. I’m balancing my writing time between getting words on the page and continuing to revise the outline. My friend Dave attended the Screenwriter’s Summit and we’ve had a […]
