The Nihilism of Don't Look Up on Netflix

The Nihilism of Don't Look Up on Netflix

I guess abject hopelessness and the limits of human nature and trust can be a laugh riot.

On contradicting my Marine dad's sage health advice

On contradicting my Marine dad's sage health advice

My dad's advice was "if you don't need to run, walk; if you don't need to walk, stand; if you don't need to stand, sit; if you don't need to sit, lie down." I am embracing the diametrically opposite.

My dirty OMAD

My dirty OMAD

tl;dr: my intermittent fasting golden ticket is a one-meal-a-day framework that doesn’t chase making calories or macros. Sometimes my daily calories will be 800 and sometimes 2,000, and that’s OK.

Howl by Allen Ginsberg

Howl by Allen Ginsberg

I have thought about Howl by Allen Ginsberg a lot from 2016 and through the global Novel Coronavirus pandemic. Howl was so salient. Allen Ginsberg was truth a soothsayer. Or, maybe, the more things change, the more they are the same. Spend some time with this amazing poem.

I'm taking my own kettlebell advice and going heavy

I'm taking my own kettlebell advice and going heavy

OK, enough flirting. All kettlebells for my two-handed kettlebell swings, from this moment forward, will be equal to or greater than 24kg. Wish me luck. I’m a man, not a mouse. I’m way closer to a moose than a mouse.

The biggest health mistake I ever make in a day is not rowing

The biggest health mistake I ever make in a day is not rowing

I used to be a daily rower. Once, on the water, on the Potomac; then, on my Model C Concept2 Indoor Rower AKA the erg. My business partner, Dan Krueger, asked me if I had been rowing. I admitted that I had not. He re-lit my rowing pilot light. God bless that guy! I am back in the sliding saddle again! I have gotten out of the habit and have started up again today, no matter what else I have on the docket. Even if I walk, run, ruck, swing, ride, or spin, I need to get that slow 5,000 meters in every single day.

From one burrito-a-day to one bowl-a-day in my one meal-a-day diet

tl;dr: OBAD once meant, to me, one burrito-a-day but now it means one bowl-a-day. My 24:.25 daily intermittent fasting eating window from the early afternoon to first thing in the morning. My one bowl-a-day is a big bowl at 48oz-a-day. Here's what I prepare and eat.

My companies have been virtual since the Fall of 2006

My companies have been virtual since the Fall of 2006. I had run my consulting business virtually from 1996 through 2002; however, actually running a proper company was different and mostly amazing (though one really must really trust and believe in the honesty of people in order for it to work).

tl;dr: Afghanistan was invaded by the United States⁠—not invited. Afghanis were our hostages, not our allies. The occupation was tolerated not enjoyed. Any US love was actually Stockholm syndrome.

Reviewing Total Fitness After 40: The 7 Life-Changing Foundations You Need for Strength, Health and Motivation in your 40s, 50s, 60s, and Beyond by Nick Swettenham

Nick Swettenham reached out to me to check out his book, Total Fitness After 40, and after dicking around with PDFs, MOBI, and ePUB, I grabbed it as a KindleUnlimited. So, I "bought" it myself. I wanted to have it registered with Goodreads and I wanted to be able grab quotes that I can share. I like reviewing books more by showing and sharing instead of telling.
