Seven Invaluable Lessons From “Unlimiting You”

February 9, 2016

I read a wonderful book last year, and since then, I’ve used it as a resource in different parts of my life. I’ve read parts of this book multiple times, scribbled notes all through it, and underlined passages so I could find them easily again. It’s called “Unlimiting You,” by Randy Spelling.

My Bowflex Workouts Just Got an Infusion of Technology

February 4, 2016

I’ve had my Bowflex MAX Trainer for 16 months, but it wasn’t until last week, when I visited the Bowflex headquarters near Portland, that I learned Bowflex has free apps for most products, including the MAX Trainer. Why didn’t I know this? I downloaded the app while waiting at the Portland airport, and couldn’t wait to start playing around with it. Read the rest of this entry »


This Cauliflower-Crust Pizza is LOW-CARB. And HEALTHY. And AMAZING.

February 3, 2016

I’m a normal dude with a pulse, so of course I love pizza. But being on a super-low-carb food program means that pizza isn’t really an option right now. Unless… I make the crust out of cauliflower!

The Month Flew By! My Final Thoughts on Personal Trainer Food

January 31, 2016

At the end of December, I started a Personal Trainer Food program called RECON. They provided me with a four-week supply of food, and I followed their program diligently. On simple terms, it’s a very low-carb program (no grains, no sugar, almost no fruit), and I was eager to switch up my eating. So for the past month, I’ve been enjoying their food (which is basically all proteins and veggies), and having meals like this:

These Are the Last Photos I’m Gonna Share from Seattle and Portland, I Swear

January 28, 2016

I must’ve written reams about my three days in Seattle and Portland (case in point: this post and this post), and I’m almost done, I promise. Just one more post, because this was a successful weekend in addition to my stair racing endeavors. Why? Largely because of snacks.

The Second Half of an Brutal, Exhausting and Undeniably Awesome Weekend (Portland Fight For Air 2016 Race Recap)

January 27, 2016

I woke up in Portland on Sunday with a very peculiar combination of feelings. I was still riding high with pride, thanks to my record-breaking performance during the Seattle Fight For Air Climb just 24 hours earlier. I was was also sore, achy and stiff, also thanks to that Seattle race, because racing up 160 stories is, to put it mildly, difficult. Then, when I flung open the curtains in my hotel room and saw the race venue right across the street, I started feeling really, really nervous.
