Building Blocks: Mastering Less as More

It’s been a long week and you’re probably wondering how it went, given my dreaded Month of Suck admission last week. I’ve spent this past week slowly recalibrating myself, lowering my expectations, ditching my guilt, and focusing on the individual steps to take rather than being overwhelmed by the bigness of my journey… And it’s been […]

Ratcheting It Up After a Slow Afternoon

Yesterday I cycled 42 kilometres. That’s the fifth time I’ve ever bested 40km in a day. It felt pretty awesome, because it’s the first time out of all those times that I managed to Finish Strong. Fitness, for me, isn’t just about health. It’s about proving things to myself. It’s about saying now that “That […]

Game On! Back to Success

Ed. Note: I often forget many of you are new here — so, a nutshell: From Jan ’08 till May of ’09, I lost 70 pounds. The hard way. Myself — no trainers, diet organizations, nothing. Hard work, honesty, and self-awareness. I burned out after 8 months with a killer back injury. So, I took […]

Hanging Up on Hang-ups

Poof, gone. Ironically, I’d […]

Existential Excavating: What Made Me What I Was

The hardest part of losing weight, I’m finding, is the challenge of identity. Being fat isn’t just something that happens over the course of a month. Being fat, becoming as fat as I ever got, took me 25 years exactly. 25 years of daily contributing to an obviously ever-growing problem. From an eight-year-old spending a […]
