As I led the latest group through my 30-day challenge, I noticed they were distracted as I showed slides and gave my talk. They were excited to get outdoors. I clapped my hands and led them outside. We adventured briskly to a nearby park, did a few core exercises, some...

We've already talked about HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). Today we'll talk about how adding intermittent fasting to HIIT reworks your fat-to-muscle ratio.

What is intermittent fasting?

Giving your body a break from all the crap you eat.

How do you do it?

Just sto...

I am talking about the deciding factor that makes you take new action.

For myself, it is the mirror. I have mirrors all over my apartment. I am noticing myself more when I gain a few pounds. My face gets a bit fuller, clothes sitting awkwardly. My back bacon coming into...

There are so many excuses.

“Working out hurts. I’m hung over. I didn’t sleep. I’m scared to get started. The pain. I’m too overweight to workout. My asthma.”

Blah blah blah. . .

Yes, I’m calling you out. Yes, experiencing the shortness of breath working out is scary and h...

I achieved success with Dryuary. I had a few party nights—I drank a few cocktails, glass of wine, and it was a “meh” experience. I really enjoyed my 31 days off. I am back to no drinking for a bit.

Well, February is over. I'm already messing up my new year!

It’s the 28th...

It's February 1!

Dry January has been a roaring success.

My 31st day of no alcohol is in the books. I’m clear-headed and focused, a few pounds lighter, pasta skills up, all while sleeping soundly with a few more bucks in my pocket. One of my buddies made it, too. We’re s...

Day 24 of Sober January

After a holiday weekend spent playing in the snow, I sit down at Harrah's steakhouse with a buddy. He orders a bottle of wine with his dinner. Martinis, cosmopolitans, and manhattans are whizzing by on waiters’ trays, while brandied meats and fla...

Hey folks its Day 14. We’re about halfway through this no-drinking adventure.

What are you doing with all this free time away from the bar? 

I’m learning to make homemade pasta and my tortellini game is getting strong. I’ve been busy practicing my skills in the k...

Day 7: Should I have a drink to help me sleep?

“Show me the way to go home
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
And it's gone right to my head.”

Today I am about 13lbs. heavier than last month. It’s from all the late-night holiday partying, eating and drinking excessively, and getting little sleep. My face is rounder. My shirt is tight.

My new apartment has a whole wall of mirrors, so I can’t hide. I am now sque...
