Mutant Diet Day 15

Announcement Post – Day 1 – Previous Post – Next Post For sponsorship, try the ever changing moods of Ottawa. Mr. Mulcair might have some insight. This is the start of Week 3. Self-perception. I think I’m now 100% certain that anyone on a weight loss program has experienced this: no one notices the changes in your body that you’ve noticed. One does not do this kind of work simply, for example, to have the ability to sit more comfortably in economy class seats. People on a diet want people to notice that your lard no longer spills over...

Mutant Diet Day 14

Announcement Post – Day 1 – Previous Post – Next Post Spider-man is looking like this so far in the next Captain America movie. For sponsorship, try Halifax. Today is Sunday. It’s my sister’s birthday. It’s the end of week 2 for this Mutant Diet.Yesterday had too many carbs. However, it was at our friends Jerry, Cory and Ava. I bought the best cut of steak at Costco and Jerry BBQ’d it. It was good. Our friends are very generous to me and without his cooking help, this first two weeks would have gone quite differently. I know have...

Announcement Post – Day 1 – Previous Post – Next Post I googled superheroes and bicycles and found this. For sponsorship, try Squamish, famous for mountain biking. Let’s talk about cheating.

Mutant Diet Day 12

Announcement Post – Day 1 – Previous Post – Next Post Golden Age Black Canary image in honour of this week’s Arrow episode. For sponsorship, try Prince Edward Island. I can’t believe I made it through yesterday but at the same time I have the true feeling that I kind of suck. Granted I only started cycling on Wednesday so my legs are going to be in shock from the sudden re-introduction of cycling. Therefore for the Mary Homework Session, I left out any heavy leg stuff. However, the pullups and pushups were tough as hell (i.e. my sets...

Mutant Diet Day 11

Announcement Post – Day 1 – Previous Post – Next Post This is a really retro image of The Thing. For sponsorship, try The Yukon. OK. Today is a gorgeous day outside and despite the pain in my legs, I felt it necessary to ride despite what my legs and backside were telling me. Ouch. My legs. And just about every other part. There’s now the pushing through process. At what point am I at risk of injury? When is it too much? Honestly, I have no idea. I biked today. (You’ll see I logged 12.7 km yesterday.) I...
