Mutant Diet Phase 5 Day Finale

Earth 18 is a world stuck in the 19th century. Like my diet. Next week we go to Toronto. Mutant Diet Phase 5 Day Finale In the finale of a phase I guess I’m not supposed to tell you I gained weight, lost my temper, came quite close to putting my fist through a wall and generally swore enough to make members of the British Special Air Services blush. The level of violent feeling was fueled by the fact that I feel lighter but none of the metrics reflected it. The unfairness is beyond description. Apparently, however, I’m strong....

Mutant Diet Phase 5 Day 30

Earth 13 a world where it’s entirely supernatural. Even Superman. Kenora is near Lake-of-the-Woods Ontario, which is magical. Mutant Diet Phase 5 Day 30 Last day of Phase 5. I see the trainer and weigh in. Tomorrow I’ll reveal the results and plans for Q1 2018. I’ve had a lot of people in this journey tell me that diet is a bad word. (Besides, is it a noun, verb or pejorative term?) They want me to consider the word lifestyle instead. This doesn’t sit well with me because I don’t think I could maintain this as a lifestyle. However,...

Mutant Diet Phase 5 Day 29

Earth 12 is a near future world where things don’t go so well. I have an urge to hide in a Bed and Breakfast in Ontario. Mutant Diet Phase 5 Day 29 Oh, yeah. I’m supposed to be on a diet. I see the personal trainer for a weigh-in tomorrow. My goal for today is to reset my innards after a too indulgent weekend. Don’t try to diet if you have any sort of social life after the first week of December. You should go into Damage Control mode. However, I’ve asked myself to stay strict today to see...

Mutant Diet Phase 5 Day 28

Earth 11 is a world where the world is matriarchal in nature and the major superheroes are women. If I were in Ontario, I’d go to a beach near Picton for hangover recovery. Mutant Diet Phase 5 Day 28 I am an idiot. Here I am minding my own business at the company party this past Friday. And then unexpectedly I, and a fair few others, are being told the place is closing. I went from slightly tipsy to full-on shitfaced in what seemed like a heat beat. The following Saturday morning I was responsible for coffee and muffins...

Mutant Diet Phase 5 Day 26

Earth 9 has a woman Green Lantern that can raise the dead. Try Stratford Ontario for a change. Mutant Diet Phase 5 Day 26 I’m very happy to report that donuts have entered the dietary equation. Well, this is a planned cheat day which started around 3 PM yesterday. With concerts that have all my family members in them plus work social events, the decay of the diet/fitness process is unsurprising. Let’s see if I can keep some semblance of moderation between now and...
