  1. I actually saved your salad picture ! keep posting those food pics
  2. went for a 40 min walk last night. After the vacation, I really see the benefits of walks. I find them very therapeutic in some ways too. off to the cottage on the weekend planning a pyscho pushup workout during the weekend (and lots of walking)
  3. 20 min on bike 2x12 incline bench 2x200m sprint 2x12 lat pulldowns 2x200m sprint 2x12 shoulder press 2x200m sprint 2x12 rows I'm glad I went. I wasn't feeling much like working out but forcd myself to go. cardio felt really good today
  4. My son is quite into it. he just bought a new board in Boston when we were on vacation. We took cool pics of him all over the place. Even in Grand Central Station NYC I started fooling around with it last year and I really like it! So far just a nasty pulled groin My son is trying to talk me into getting a long board. we'll see..............

    survivor is just around the corner!! Just for fun, we should run a pool. What do you think? Someone runs them at my work (for survivor and Big Brother) I always find that it's tough to cheer for the people you selected because they turn out to be extreme jerks! fun though
  6. another walk last night. 20 min also threw in a 200m sprint and was humbled by the effortless pace of Sadie (our much loved family dog) I'm going full out and she is playing with the leash!!! Maybe I need 4 legs too......... felt a bit lethargic this morning but I packed the gym bag anyway. I think I'll try for another easy workout. I'm still dreaming of the meal we had in NYC. I found a vegan food cart while searching on line Went to it and had a great visit and fantastic food. The kids loved it too Some of the highlights were crepes filled with lentils and fresh veggies and the vegan "drumsticks" (sort of a seitan-like roll on a sugar cane stick) served with an assortment of mild to hot sauces. mmmm That was the best meal on the trip for sure!!!
  7. went for a 25 minute walk at lunch. still feeling a bit poorly this has been a horrible summer health-wise! I'm almost looking forward to winter! (almost)
  8. Hey Vegan Joe how are things? nice workouts! and I always enjoy the meal pictures! I know a few people who have experienced those symptoms and it has turned out to be blood pressure related. Looks like you've been going pretty hard for awhile, maybe give yourself a rest day or two and see if any improvement happens?
  9. in defence of Lesnar.... I saw an interview with him after the lst fight with Mir. He said that the UFC had asked him to "bring some WWE into the show" Seems like they are intent on making him the heel of the UFC. (not that I don't think that he's a jerk too)
  10. dragged my butt to the gym at lunch not much of a workout but at least it got me going 12 minutes on bike 2x12 incline bench 2x12 lats 2x12 shoulder press 2x12 rows 2x12 leg ext 1 45 second burnouts (was planning to do more but my breathing was acting up a bit) dropped my weights to 50% of 6 rep max today. felt pretty good
  11. almost caught up on my rest. caught a nasty ear infection last week after boogieboarding the big waves (hurricane season really cranked them up) Had the opportunity to hit the tennis ball around a bit on my vacation. It's been about 8 years but it came back quickly. My forehand was a bit spotty but net play and backhand felt quite comfortable. hmmmmm probably less injury potential for me than soccer??? Sadie is settling in nicely at home. Still pretty tired but she is very content and happy to be home. Now I have to think about the gym membership. It comes up in 2 weeks. I'll have to give it some serious thought as to whether to stay, move to another gym or workout at home.
  12. awesome news!!! congrats ! seems to be a rarity to have a wedding go off without a hitch. I'm really happy for you that it went well. All the best to you and your husband !
  13. thanks lobsteriffic ! definitely a big sigh of relief in our household and how are YOU doing? Did everything go well?

    I love the Amazing Race! One of my favourites for sure! wasn't too fond of the season they did with families though....
  15. Wow!!! finally back from vacation and it was quite the whirlwind adventure saw an awful lot of sights, ate some fabulous food and lost 5LBS to boot Our dog Sadie (my avatar) decided that 2 days into her stay at my wife's aunt's house that she would go out and find us. the garage door was opened for all of 30 seconds to take tha garbage out and Sadie ran outside, stopped and looked at my wife's aunt and just bolted away! Our first inclination was to hop a plane right home but the dog sitter was incredible! she mobilized this huge search effort, checked animal services, the humane society and dog shelters daily, delivered flyers, pasted posters all over the place.... We figured that we really couldn't do much mor ourselves. We tried to keep the kids as busy as possible while we were away to keep their minds off of Sadie. A few phone calls started coming in with possible sadie sightings but nobody could ever catch her (she is quite wary of people) We arrived home last night about 11:30 pm and searched until 2:30 am with no luck. Another call came in late last night with a sighting closer to aunties' home and then another call at 3:20 am with a sighting even closer. My wife went and scoured the neighborhood this morning and found Sadie on her Aunt's street. Almost 2 weeks on her own and she returns right when we come back!!! amazing!!! she was pretty stinky, thin and had some pretty bad matted hair but she was awfully happy!!! she's sleeping at home now and that is the best thing of all about the vacation!
  16. off on vacation this weekend for 2 weeks I'll certainly get a lot of walking in. probably pushups too. last night was a bit of a writeoff as I was busy doing laundry, vacuuming, getting the suitcases ready etc.... be back in 2 weeks
  17. Wow! there sure have been a lot of deaths this year 94 is a pretty nice age to live to but it still is a sad thing My 13 yr old son talks about Les Paul guitars all the time. Amazing what an impact he has made
  18. thanks all! she doesn't have any allergies the holding your nose and blowing thing works well for me personally but a flight attendant told us last flight that it can potentially do damage It's pretty tough to see her in such pain and discomfort. Hope things go better this time around. Especially since we have a stopover on route
  19. I've found the same thing aryan... especially if it's high intensity... made that mistake a couple times and almost lost it on the gym floor
  20. 50 pushups last night. still suffering with the allergy symptoms slept fairly well but woke up feeling quite rough back to the doc today for followup Saw The Hurt Locker last night. Very good film. I knew it was supposed to be good but it surpassed my expectations, well acted and extremely well filmed. Contains some powerful messages without dumbing it down
  21. she is turning 12 so water might be the better option not a bad idea. frequent small sips might help. I've also been recommended to give her a sinus medication before flying.
  22. We're flying to Boston this weekend and my daughter has horrible earaches when she flies tried chewing gum and earplugs with no luck any suggestions?
  23. Vegan Joe you're killin me with thes pics!!!!!!! looks amazing!
