  Winning the Battle...
Little 'Diet' update... I hit 200lbs for the first time today... So I'm down about 27 lbs... I'm committed to having a really good week this week after doing lots of drinking (World Cup Matches, Beer Festivals, Montreal, Keg Parties...), over the past 4 weeks... My new goal is 180lbs, so I'm over half way there now... Time to shop for some new clothes... How have I done it?

- Lots of Cardio (100-150 mins per week)
- Extra exercise wherever possible (stairs instead of escalator, walk to the store, etc)
- Cut out stupid calories (French Fries, Beer during the week, no Sugar in my coffee, etc)
- No snacking at night (Chips, etc)

  I WANNA LIVE FOREVER! - The Longevity Meme
The Longevity Meme -- ideas and actions for longer, healthier lives
Found this interesting website, certainly worth exploring, some fascinating ideas... This particular link is to an article about the vision that Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman have for the future of healthy life extension, reprinted with permission from their new book, Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever.

But the site has all kinds of other interesting information, particularly fascinating are the research studies on Calorie Restricted (CR) Diets and how it's proven to lengthen life span (in animals anyway...)

Neat stuff!!

Life is great, let's stick around!

I think a lot. Some people say I think too much... However, I don't want to be seen as being aloof or pretentious, it's just that I really enjoy philosophical questions and deep thoughts. That's not to say that I don't find pleasure in more down-to-earth or trivial things, like beer and soccer :) I'm happily married with 3 wonderful children. I'm a partner in a technology services company based in Toronto. Myers Briggs says I'm an ENTJ
