Episode 26

Another fantastic week in the exercise department. I'm feeling good about the progress I'm making at Crossfit - I'm doing things I never dreamed of doing and each week is an adventure in forcing my body to do things it would rather not!

On the sidebar there is a link to a workout called 'Fight Gone Bad.' We did that on Tuesday and I was ready for the basket by the time I finished. That workout is done in every Crossfit gym all over the world at least once every 6 weeks or so, and it kind of makes me happy to know that I can do the same workout that a working soldier in Iraq is doing - albeit with a lot less intensity. There is something very validating about pushing your own limits.

Canadian Thanksgiving was a blast for Reg and I - we spent time with our grandchildren, and there isn't anything better in my mind. We had a lot of laughs - a lot of food - and I thought of several new things to be thankful for this year. If you have good health, you have everything, and we could all spend a bit more time making sure we keep our health.

Free health care is great - I'm thankful that I rarely have to use it.


  1. You are so inspiring. I think the forces are working against me. I keep coming across your blog and my cousin talks to me about Crossit nearly everyday. I think I'm getting closer to crossing over to the other side.

  2. Hey, I beat you! I just listened to no 27 and you're on 26 here. I struggle with the weight loss too, I keep losing that 5 lbs - great... Then I look away and gain it again and have to agonize getting it off again - very slowly

    Thanks for putting Gordon on - he was great!

    I like the weight training, because it makes me feel more powerful, but I do wonder if I'm not accentuating a pretty stocky body and short neck by adding more shoulder an back muscles? Any views?
