  1. The pups are young yet, maybe do a workout where you just imitate whatever they do for a couple hours. Great father/son(s) time and a KILLER workout.
  2. Hey I'm not dead. Just been without my laptop and Tapatalk sucks. Not doing much fitness-wise, still eating decent and getting lots of activity at work, but not really training at all. Have to try turn it around.
  3. Well I finally found my threads on Tapatalk (I hate the new Tapatalk) I haven't died, I've just been without time to sit at my laptop. Jobs WAY more physical so hopefully that helps. Even if I don't get any of my goals done.
  4. This weekend I tanked. I just have no oompf. But I think tomorrow morning I will head over to the soccer field (in proper shoes ) and do some sprints, and a modified workout just to say I did something. And if it is cool enough, I might even do a cool down run.
  5. I like how you've learned from your experience and altered your challenge accordingly. And congratulations on the meal prep
  6. sounds like you're making awesome progress dude. I really admire your dedication and drive
  7. I found when I was doing pull ups, I would do 3 sets to failure (even though it was only a total of 5 pull ups at the time) and then after I could no longer get my arms to drag my rear end upwards against gravity I would jump up to the bar, use the momentum to help pull myself into the very top of the movement and get a solid 5-10 second negative in and I saw gains fairly quickly.
  8. "Nothing is over my head. My reflexes are too fast, I would catch it." "He got my dick message!" Totally NOT a movie for kids, and all the better for it.
  9. Seeing Guardians Of The Galaxy in about 20 minutes. SO stoked!
  10. My foot is totally fine today but thanks for the great advice EG
  11. So yesterday I went out to the soccer field again to mess around and modify my workout to be enjoyed in the great outdoors (drop rows, do pull ups from the crossbar of the net, and use the upright posts to help with pistol squats.). I was doing this because I had forgotten my keys at home and had time to kill before my Love got home from work, so I was wearing cargo shorts, flip flops, and a tee shirt (which I had taken off) because I'm a super-classy dude. Instead I ended up stepping on a bee or something and couldn't walk. lol. My foot is fine today, but yesterday it was puffy, painful, and getting numb and tingly. and towards evening I was having issues balancing and feeling a teensy bit woozy. In my make friends goal, I have been in contact with 3 old friends/acquaintances and have soft plans to get together with all of them in the next couple weeks I hope they're receptive and I can help change their lives
  12. If it's not fun anymore and it's no longer one of your priorities, and it's taking away from things you'd rather do, then you're likely doing more harm than good to continue practicing them. Maybe the reason you're stalling out on handstands is because of a weakness or imbalance somewhere?
  13. Man it sounds like you're killing this challenge! Way to go buddy
  14. Today was a winner. Woke up semi-early (about 6am) and went for a walk with my girlfriend ad made her eggs and moose sausage before she had to go to work. Then took a 3 hour nap, then went grocery shopping then went for a cardio workout. There's a soccer pitch less than a kilometer from where we live so I jogged out to it and ran 3 sets of sprints across and back. For the first two sets I sprinted the length of the field, then walked around until I felt like I could go again, and ran back. And for the third set I sprinted to the half and jogged the rest of the way and did the same thing on the way back. I know it wasn't the best I've ever done, and including the travel between home and the pitch and back, it took less than 20 minutes, but I gave it my all and left exhausted. My legs weren't jelly, but not by much. And it was nice to be shirtless in the sun and 30+ degree heat. I have a paleo stir-fry marinating for us for supper and right away we're going to go for another walk I love doing things with my Love
  15. Of course. If we can organize it properly there will even be documentary style video. lol
  16. I like the music in the second video, although the dance looks a lot more confused and hectic. lol. I love that you do such awesome stuff. I'd love to learn some stuff like that
  17. So far today is off to a good start Last night Valorie expressed her desire to wake up early and go for a walk this morning, so we got up at 6 (she wasn't quite as stoked as I was ) and went for a walk around the block. Then she had a shower before work and I made her some fried eggs and moose sausage (courtesy of Remoth) for breakfast Is it weird that I like days off because I get to play housewife and look after my baby-girl? lol
  18. Yes I do love the Wheel Of Time series How far in are you? I'm glad to be back. I was too long away, but needed the time to regroup and solidify my vision. I'm glad I've found her too it's just been such a blessing to have such an amazing young woman in my life, and I can't even describe how glad I am that we share a common vision for our future. I'm even happier that we've been given the means to achieve it Also, Is it weird that I feel like I would like for her and I to show up to Walmart one day dressed in full on movie quality Halo Spartan armor, buy a hundred nerf guns for random kids that are there and lead them against each other in a capture the flag nerf war? In Walmart? Probably the produce section? lol. We also want to deck out in Iron-Man armor (again, the expensive movie-quality kind) throw on a santa hat and drag a bag of toys up and down the halls of the Stollery Children's Hospital and the local Ronald McDonald House for all the sick kids and their families at the holidays
  19. So today was a wash diet-wise. Had LOTS of McDonalds at lunch because of reasons. now going to see Lucy and have dinner with the beautiful future missus Church.
  20. I started dating a lovely young lady and we are quite madly in love. Her and I share the same vision for the future and with the guidance of our mentors we will be able to build a strong, loving marriage, create a legacy for our children and grandchildren, care for our parents and grandparents, and help countless others achieve their goals and dreams. She's literally everything I ever wanted in a woman, and so many things I didn't know I needed until she was suddenly there. And she has no idea how I feel about her because every time I try and tell her it comes out "I love you." Shes like the air conditioned seats in my truck. I had absolutely no idea how badly I needed her until she was suddenly there. lol.
  21. You guys are adorable! I don't know when Valorie and I will be down in the States again. So far we we've only left Canada once, for a business conference this past weekend in Spokane. But within the next few years we will have lots of spare time to travel and enjoy life, and I know she would LOVE to come down. One of our shared goals is to get competent with parkour and movnat so I think we could DEFINITELY make a day or even a whole weekend of it. lol.
  22. Awesome challenge buddy! I'm so glad things are going better with you and Heather One day when me and the girlfriend are down in your neck of the woods, we'll have to get together and do dinner or something One of my mentors recently told me that if a husband and wife are working towards a common goal/interest/passion it will draw them closer together. Because you have him, her and the goal/passion/interest acting as the 3 points of a triangle, so the closer they drew to their goal/passion/interest the closer they came to each other. These particular people chose to pursue their love of the Lord, much like yourself and Heather have done, and it literally brought their marriage back from the brink of hostile divorce and turned it into one of the strongest, most loving, most inspiring relationships I have ever seen. I know that one day the same will be true for you and Heather
