Lazy Sunday

Today is a lazy butt day.

Yesterday was a pretty productive day for me up bright and early...made the better half breakfast and then I went down to the river valley and went for a nice jog along the river...just a beautiful snowy day and not another soul around.

I went again today which was nice but really would like to keep the motivation going to do it weekly..gets the heart beat up and out the house...I went to cancel my gym membership and they wanted a $200 fee! doh!

After the run I came home and pulled out a bunch of art supplies and easels and paint that I had gotten the better half a few months ago. I sat down for a few hours and actually was kinda proud of my efforts at the that I mastered oil painting (or whatever it was) I think I am going to start working on windsurfing next...

After that I got the girl out of the house and we went down to participate in Earth Day events. It as alright...almost a bit sad that there were only 50 or so people that turned off to see the big switch flicked...ah well.....

When we came home we spent the night chit chatting by candlelight and I read my "how to build a cabin" literature a bit more.

That's all for now!

Feeling pretty good

A few weeks back the girl decided to start doing a "detox" I got to say that I've never really been a believer in most "detox's". The human body does a great job at getting rid of bad things and most detox's are just newage babble.

That being said I do think it's a great idea sometimes to cut certain things out of your diet and just see how the changes affect your overall well being. Also, as a sign of comraderie I decided to go along with her "21 day Dr Joshi detox"..more or less it's a way to get your body to be more alkaline instead of acid based. The general rule is that there is no fruit/sugar (cept banananana's)

It's actually fairly close to what I normally do so I think it was a bit easier for me to do than the better half but I got to say that after doing this thing for 10 days I am totally impressed with the changes.

I have way more energy and am just way more's not like I was depressed before but I keep catching myself with a goofy grin walking down the street whisting. The fact that I've lost almost 10 pounds in 10 days also makes me pretty happy ( if not stunned ).

I don't even really feel like I've sacraficed all that fact it's opened me up to a tonne of different styles of foods that I just never explored before...being way more creative. So besides introducing a cheat day I don't think I'm even going to adjust my lifestyle all that much.

I signed up for a 10k underwear run this summer so got to start trainining hard for that...plan to be in the best shape of my life by my birthday and it's looking like I may be able to get to those goals.
