Getting A Good Drunk On

Published on 06/20/2012 by in Major Loss

So, there I was sitting at my parents place Sunday last, and I came to the conclusion that I should walk home, rather than drive. My weather radar showed that I had roughly 90 minutes before the rain showers would hit our little area of the world. I pronounced to the family, “I am going to walk home”. They stared at me, and wanted to see if I’d been drinking or something. You see, since the day I turned 16 (driving age here in Ontario, Canada) there have been so few times that I would actually walk anywhere. To the Mall, to school, to soccer, friends houses, to that party

Waking Up To Wonderful Smells

Do you remember as a kid waking up to the smell of food cooking? How it made you feel all warm inside? Likely your mother was up at the crack of dawn preparing breakfast full of yummy goodness of things like eggs, bacon, sausage, toast with jam, or honey, and fruit. That’s what we woke up to this morning. Before retiring last night, Deann set up the crock pot and set to cooking a pork shoulder that I picked up at Goodness Me in Waterdown, Ontario over the weekend.  Always nice to find great pieces of meat on sale!  The pot and pork were prepped, and into its bathtub the shoulder went

Big A** Strawberries

Published on 05/08/2012 by in Major Loss

Deann and our daughter went grocery shopping recently and came home with what appeared to us to be strawberries on steroids. Have a look, and tell me if you don’t agree! One the left, a “normal” strawberry. On the right, the mutant berry, nearly 3 times larger, but sadly not in taste.   Share this on:

Week 7 Progress

Published on 05/03/2012 by in Major Loss

7 Weeks Down and Progress being made! Today marks week 7 of my change in diet and lifestyle.  It’s been a while since I posted, mainly because I have been busy with our websites, my day job, my night/weekend job and finding time to sit down and write something has been difficult. So as I mentioned, today marks 7 weeks since cutting out Gluten, Processed Foods, Artificial Sweeteners, Grains, and Dairy…basically went paleo.  A lot of people comment to me…”I don’t know if I could give up my xxxxx”. Well, here’s the trick.  It’s up to you.  I still have the odd piece of cheese, and even the odd slice

Video Games In Our Schools?

Published on 04/24/2012 by in Uncategorized

An article inspired by the following: Weighty Matters: The American Diabetes Association Wants Video Games in Your Kids School Gyms?. One of the major issues I have after having read the report above, is that the ADA (American Diabetic Association) being happy to recommend that Dance, Dance, Revolution into our childrens’ schools for gym is, where do our kids get exercise with this?  In our generation alone, kids have gone from being outside, running and playing with other neighborhood kids the majority of their time; to being inside, inactive, and isolated. Let’s take a quick look at something interesting I noted from the article: Looks awesome right, kids playing DDR were expending more than double the calories

Getting Started…well, soon.

Published on 03/08/2012 by in Major Loss

Well, it seems that I have managed to get myself into a bit of a problem. Wanting to start something new, but physically unable right now to do so.  Somehow, last weekend I managed to hurt my back, and simple tasks like walking, sitting and laying down have become an issue. Not to mention how much fun i’ve had this past week travelling slower than a shadow moves across a room as the sun traverses the sky.  It’s not been a fun week. Haven’t been able to walk the kids to the bus stop in fear of ceasing up, as has happened 3 times already this week.  Now i have
