OUTDOOR ADVENTURES I’D LIKE YOU TO ENJOY

October 23, 2017

Oh shoot!

And shoot again. I was more chuffed than ever before while I was writing that last post up for you guys. So much so that I never got a chance to finish what I wanted to say. It’s something called the second wind. Marathon runners get it a lot if they’ve trained really well for their race. They’re on a healthy high, the adrenalin is up and pumping and they get to run a lot faster than they planned, sometimes even smashing their PB. Continue Reading…

2 SHAKES & A BEVY OF SUPPLEMENTS THAT COULD WORK FOR YOU

May 14, 2017

Man, oh man, I feel so proud of myself.

Will you take another look at my last post I did up for you already? I mean, really guys. You couldn’t have asked more from an ex-con and previously uneducated guy like me. I’ve given you more to bite on. Like the sales pitch cliché goes, I’ve also given you more bang for your buck. Thinking back how I did up that post on protein shakes – remember how I said that I would be relying on as much online info as possible – I found that I could still write from personal experience. Just goes to show how far I’ve come as a healthy, fit and brainy guy. Continue Reading…

WHAT ARE PROTEIN SHAKES AND WHO SHOULD BE USING THEM

February 21, 2017

This should have been a tough post to write.

A case of going back to the drawing board if you will. But no biggie because I have all my notes right here with me. What we’re going to be doing again is have another look at those protein shakes. Call it a recap if you like but I honestly don’t believe that enough guys out there are paying enough attention. They’re just too darn eager to try out the fandangled wonder products before learning just how to shape up with them good and proper and finding out if they’re like actually supposed to use them. So, on to the big question; what are protein shakes. Continue Reading…

WHERE THE TRAIL ENDS

WHERE THE TRAIL STARTED FOR ME

November 29, 2016

Okay, guys don’t know if the saying is true for you over there, no matter where in the world you are today.

Cowboys don’t cry. Man, since my earliest days, I’ve never been known to be one of those cry babies. Can I say this? Don’t know what you call them where you are, and hey ‘girls’, no disrespect meant, but from a young age, I was always taught that it was only sissies who cried. As hard as my two years inside were, I never shed a tear there either. Continue Reading…

MAD-CAP OUTDOOR ADVENTURES I’D LIKE TO TRY

September 1, 2016

This is a tricky post to write.

The thing is, while I’m going to be making suggestions to you on mad-cap outdoor adventures to try out, I’ve never even tried them myself.

So, how the heck am I going to substantiate the fact these would be cool outdoor activities to try? So, here’s what I’m going to do then. I’m going to write to my heart’s content, explaining away why I think these may be neat tricks for you to try out. Because many of these sports and recreational activities are still not popular as in the case with NFL or basketball or soccer (had to mention that one, because I know a lot of guys out there love this sport and it’s also the world’s most popular sport, didn’t you know), and because some of them are pretty tricky, they’re called extreme sports.

DO I BELIEVE PROTEIN SHAKES ARE GOOD FOR YOU; LET’S FIND OUT

June 24, 2016

I might be quite an opinionated kind of guy but if there’s one thing I’ve learned well during my time inside it is to not lead the other guys who know no less down the wrong path. Don’t be a bad influence on them and certainly don’t feed them with the wrong information. It has to be the case here because here we’re going to be talking about protein shakes. And do I believe protein shakes are good for you? Like I just said, you’re not going to be taking my word for it. Continue Reading…

WHERE THE TRAIL ENDS

ACTUALLY, THE TRAIL NEVER ENDS

January 5, 2016

Hi, hope you enjoyed my last ‘outpost’. Hope you enjoyed my concerted effort to do a bit of trailblazing on your behalf. While I’m always talking about the things I love doing out of doors, the game here is to encourage many of you guys to get up on your feet and go out there and have a blast, because guys, I have to tell you this, you only have one life so you’d better make the most of it. It’s the only one you’ve got, so you’d better make it count. And doing so is not all about making the most out of your career. There’s other things you’ve got to do to make sure that your life is awesome. Continue Reading…

SPACE FOR THREE OUTDOOR ADVENTURES I ENJOY

August 17, 2015

I’m pretty sure that my last post on combining protein and carbohydrates was not that much of a mouthful. I kept my notes short on purpose because I know many of you guys already have quite a lot going for you on your plates. Some of you will have to make pretty radical changes while others will continue to do what you know and like best. You’ll also know that there’s plenty enough meat on the bones where solid information on carbohydrates and protein is concerned. This time around, it’s back to trying to do a bit of trailblazing where outdoor adventures are concerned. Continue Reading…

COMBINING PROTEIN AND CARBOHYDRATES FOR THE SPORTS ACTIVE

July 9, 2015

Man, I had such a lot of fun typing up my last blog post to you. What was it supposed to be all about? Oh, yes, we were supposed to be talking about me being on the run. You see, I learned something about writing while I was inside and after my first few hard years of freedom, I’ve continued this learning quest and put my writing practice to the test. The last post was a good play on me always being on the run. You’ll see now that I’ve saved my sub-headings and here we are going to be talking just about carbohydrates. Continue Reading…

MAN ON THE RUN

March 15, 2015

I must tell you about those outdoor adventures

That’s the great thing about this blogging gig. Because it’s a personal one it gets to have a life of its own. You remember how the last post turned out? I was saying one thing, promising to talk to you about this, that and the other, and ended up getting no further than how I got to love chowing down my carbs. Only, I didn’t even get to tell you that. Not only that, I didn’t even get to the rest of the stuff. Now that I’m warmed up to the idea, I’m not even bothered by it and I’m actually starting to get quite excited about it. Continue Reading…
