The hardest part of training…

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the hardest part of training is eating. I like schedules and, in most things, I’m very disciplined. I think this is 95% of the… Continue reading

Six Over-rated Fitness Items

This title may be a bit misleading. Let’s say six fitness items about which I don’t understand the hype (very possibly because I haven’t used them…but don’t see a reason to try). I started… Continue reading

This is gonna be the best day of my life

For years I’ve thought it would be awesome to be a person who bakes bread. But I’ve been so intimidated that I haven’t even tried. I mean, what flour to use? How long… Continue reading
