Day 2: Plyometrics

I awoke to that beautiful feeling of torn stomach muscle tissue. Ha, I’m just being dramatic. However, YES, I was sore this morning. If you’ve never done Ab Ripper X – there’s a reason they call it that. Ab Ripper is done 3 times per week AFTER your main exercise. It hurts, it’s hard. At least in the beginning. I went ‘easy does it’ yesterday only...

Day 1: Chest and Back

Annnd, we’re off to the races. First day of P90x is in the box. It was a very easy, low-impact, low-key day. More of a ‘time to wake up’ kind of day for my muscles (or what’s left of them). My office has been converted into my ‘workout haven’. So in between sets I took a few pics of what I’m working with. On top of the first day of working out, I’ve...

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year. 2012 is here. Just got back from a great getaway to Sanibel Island. The weather was perfect, it was a low-key New Year’s party at the hotel. I’m glad we didn’t try to plan anything big. It felt good to chill out. It was still a late night (which is why I’m already in bed), but it also is a big day tomorrow. First day of P90x and my new way of life! I know...

T-minus 2 days: My P90X plan for 2012

Enjoying a getaway to Sanibel Island in southern Florida. I’m busy eating what I want, laying around, and staying up late. Trying to enjoy every last second of this getaway before reality sets in! New Years Eve tonight. Wishing everyone a great 2012!

Hello, Mr. Bear

I’m home on my Christmas break. It’s a much different story than last year when I flew into Hell’s wrath of a snowstorm and was diverted (against my will) to Grand Forks, North Dakota for the first night of my trip. You can read the comedy of errors here. This trip has been much more pleasant. My parents spend a lot of their time at our cabin a few hours north of the Twin Cities...

Mastering the Golf Ball Snow Globe

It took about an hour, but I mastered the Golf Ball Snow Globe.  And that’s a big deal to me because this could have been a colossal time-waster. So I wanted to make quick work of it. I was told it could take days, months even – to master the Golf Globe. Because if you’re too aggressive, you won’t get the ball to sit on the tee. Brainless exercise? Perhaps. But an exercise...

Mount Dora Craft Fair

It’s event season in Central Florida. Channel 9 is out and about at some of the local fairs and celebrations chatting with viewers and giving away some trips. Today’s stop was in Mount Dora – a neat little town northwest of Orlando. This is the 27th year of Mount Dora Craft Fair that attracts 325,000 people and 350 ‘crafters’ from around the country. The weather was...

Rough and Rougher

I lived in Tucson, Arizona for five years. The golf courses were absolutely amazing. They were extremely manicured, cut perfectly out of the desert with bright green grass. It was a amazing they could get something so pretty to grow on hot rocks. However they do it, it was a treat to play some of the nicer courses. But to play a ‘desert course’ is to be in for some surprises. There...
