Happy Monday!

Our trip to Canada was awesome!! I finally got to see Niagra Falls. Wow, what a spectacle. We just drove by them because we were on a schedule to get back home, but it was really nice to say I was there and got to see them.

This week, it’s back to the gym with the 12-week Labrada Trainer. I’m helping my wife with some of her school work. She’s in the final leg of her Master of Education in Special Education and I’m so excited for her.

I’m working on a few of my books, started a Western Civilization course at Hillsdale college and midway through a course called Mindshift on Coursera. I’m also plugging away at my technical recruiting book.

I’m going to begin a practice of intermittent fasting. I will be playing around with the eating schedule and such initially, just to get myself adjusted to this new lifestyle. From what I’ve read, it is terrific on your digestive system, helps with weight loss and loosens up your schedule when you’re not having to eat scheduled meals, like most weight loss and bodybuilding regimens. A lot of folks in the bodybuilding and cross-training space have adopted this type of eating lifestyle and have found success so I figured it would be worth a try. For religious reasons I fast Thursday to Friday for 24-hours and I always feel terrific. If you’re curious about this type of eating plan, a quick search on Google will deliver a lot of results. As always, make sure you check with your doctor to make sure this will be ok and try it out for a day or so before committing.

I may sound a little stupid and geeky here, but while in Canada I was in a position where I needed my computer and the place we were at did not have a Wi-Fi setup. I learned how to use my phone as a hotspot for the first time. It was really cool to be able to access the internet on my computer using my phone. I have a really good data plan and wasn’t worried about exhausting my data stores.

To all those folks that are writers in my audience: Do you like to listen to music while you write? If so, what kind of music assists your writing practice? I enjoy listening to study-time instrumentals and other focus-type music.

Well, that’s it for today folks. Have a great week!!

Until next time…
