Week 37 Roundup

Thirty seven weeks in. Married. Honeymoon over, (at least technically), and back at work. What happens? BAM! I lose 3/4 of an inch – down to 40 1/4 inches.

So we made this Amazing Pasta

Last night we made an amazing pasta for dinner. It’s a recipe for Pasta with Squid Rings, (yes, I know they could have named it better – they were trying to incorporate the word “rings” because of the Olympics), that I saw in the Globe and Mail about a week ago and I’ve been thinking […]

  • What is Choices That Matter?

    I'm a guy named John, and I do most of the writing around here. I went from a really active lifestyle to a really inactive lifestyle very quickly and my body is noticing. On top of that I'm worried about what's happening to our planet, so, I'm trying to do something about it.

    For Christmas I received the book Food Matters, which I found very interesting and inspired me to start changing. Check out my first post for the beginning of the story.
