Why You Should Be a Meathead – 4 Surprising Things Bodybuilders, Powerlifters, and Lunks Can Teach You about Living Right

(Comic by Nijaz Sedic.)   Ok, so maybe you don’t actually want to be a meathead. But you should. And it’s not for the reasons you think.   Sure, it might be cool to have a back that tears at your shirt’s seams, and biceps that get the girls all giggly. And maybe it would […]

Week 7 on the Steak and Eggs Diet and . . .

  (See my intro post to find out why I’m taking the steak and eggs diet challenge.)   Honestly, I can’t even say I was on the steak and eggs diet this week. Anyone who read my last post knows that at the start of this week I went 3 days without eating any food. […]

74 Hours. 2 Glasses of Wine. And ZERO Food.

  As I write this, my belly is happily stuffed with pan fried ribeye, smothered in potatoes and onions sautéed in butter. Lots of butter. And a cold dark beer to wash it all down with. I cherished every greasy bite. Because for the last 3 days, I haven’t eaten a thing. Well, I had […]

A Decade of Baking — and the 12 Lessons it Taught Me About Living with Extraordinary Passion.

Quit Cowering! Live Your Damn Life!

  (This post is part of the Friday Night Kick in the Ass series.)   I know fear. I’ve tasted pain. I’ve cowered in shadow.   Shadow you know well.   To this day, I struggle to rid myself of the shadow . . . the weakness.   Pain. Doubt. Lies.   We all suffer […]

Are You Really the Man You Should Be?

  Before you can answer this question, you’d better first figure out just what the hell “a man” is.   Because let’s face it, in this day and age, we’ve lost sight of what it means to be a man. And if we don’t know what a man should be — how he should act — […]

Week 5 on the Steak and Eggs Diet and . . .

  (See my intro post to find out why I’m taking the steak and eggs diet challenge.)   To be honest, I’m not even sure I should call this a “week” on the diet. I was good for 3 days. That’s it. The other days saw deviations ranging from minor to blasphemous.   Yes, blasphemous.   I […]
