Yoga Peeps
Tuesday, April 14, 2009      0 comments

Here is a great audio / mp3 file of Tony Horton discussing the importance of yoga. It really makes a lot of sense and helps explain the connection and importance of yoga as it relates to all other aspects of fitness: Read more
Sledding as Exercise
Saturday, April 11, 2009      0 comments

This was a lot more work than I remember as a kid. I guess I wasn't pulling a 4-year-old behind me then either. What great fun trudging through the snow for a quick fast, ride as your payoff--and incentive to do it all over again.... Read more
Shay's Birthday
Tuesday, April 07, 2009      0 comments

I need to go get groceries for a marinated tuna steak I'm planning for supper. Lunch is easy as we are going out to our favorite restaurant, Courthouse Pub. And for a birthday treat...well, we'll see how me and my 4-year-old pastry chef manage... Read more

My wife's birthday is coming up tomorrow, and as she occasionally reads this blog, I don't want to give anything away. I hope she enjoys her gift and her special birthday dinner.... Read more
Creme fraiche recipe
Sunday, April 05, 2009      0 comments

I have been trying to buy this locally in our grocery stores without success for several weeks now. In the past few days, I've found two recipes for it. I'm very excited about this as several of Bobby Flay's recipes call for it. From _A Platt... Read more
Orville Redenbacher's Natural Popcorn
Saturday, April 04, 2009      0 comments

A friend of mine recently introduced me to this microwave popcorn. I have never had salt and pepper on popcorn before, and it is fantastic! What a great kick and spice this has. Very tasty. It might be "too spicy for little kids," but I thin... Read more
Tony Horton's Blog
Friday, April 03, 2009      0 comments

I found Tony Horton's blog by doing a Spark People web search today. I read all the entries as far back as his 50th birthday this past July. What an inspiration he is. Reading what he had to say (write) reaffirmed things that I know but had f... Read more
Apple & Blackberry Cobbler
Thursday, April 02, 2009      0 comments

I love to bake. I enjoy the measuring, the fine-tuning, the smells, the tastes--everything. I tried this Bobby Flay recipe yesterday, and it was fantastic. One of the great things about working in the emergency room is having a place where yo... Read more
Night Shifts
Wednesday, April 01, 2009      1 comments

Today is my first of five night shifts. I'm hoping to do better with my eating. I'm also doing more cardio for the next 120 days or so in an effort to drop these last few pounds.... Read more
P90X - Round 4
Tuesday, March 31, 2009      0 comments

This will be my fourth time through P90X. I started it originally on 15 April 2008. This time I am doing a slightly modified version. I am spacing the strength training sessions out to twice a week instead of three times per week. I am addin... Read more
Visual Cues
Monday, March 30, 2009      0 comments

Ever notice how you will yawn if someone around you yawns? (I'm starting to yawn as I write this even). I've noticed the same is true of eating with me. In my work environment (the emergency department), we all tend to eat at different times,... Read more
Pull-ups with Hips at 90 Degrees
Sunday, March 29, 2009      0 comments

I saw Tony Horton do this in one of the P90X DVDs--I forget which one. I tried it for several pull-ups and have really irritated my back. There is no doubt that they are harder to do than with your legs hanging down, but I don't think I've rea... Read more
Yoga X
Wednesday, March 25, 2009      1 comments

After my disappointing session with Rodney Yee (via DVD, of course) yesterday, I just had to do Yoga X this morning. That 90 minutes really goes by fast for me. I worked up a great sweat, and felt really good afterwards--like I always do. I w... Read more
Yoga Burn with Rodney Yee
Tuesday, March 24, 2009      0 comments

This was a very disappointing DVD for me. It is 60 minutes long and focuses on constant slow movement between poses. I did not find it to be challenging at all. I'm glad that I borrowed it from the library instead of purchasing it. It will b... Read more
What Comes After P90X?
Monday, March 23, 2009      0 comments

I'm already thinking about my exercise plan for April, which will be after P90X. Since April 2008 to present, I have done 3 rounds of P90X. I enjoy it, but I'm hoping to focus a little more on cardiovascular endurance and lean body mass. I'm ... Read more
