Panama Costa Rica and Belize Cruise

Getting leaner, approaching my goal of 6% by July 1st

Creatine: I used Creatine for almost 14 years straight after accepting from my natural bodybuilding, health and fitness mentor Cory Holly from Canada’s Alive magazine did his due dilligence and deemed it safe for a natural athlete. Turns out it’s got a lot of great anti-aging properties. The only time I’ve been off it is when my personal trainer here in Edmonton said she was against it. After taking almost a year off from Creatine, I’ve loaded up and am back on it. A very interesting article about Creatine and alcohol here. As well, the creatine information you need about how to maximize creatine uptake in post workout shake. Interesting that protein helps uptake.

Just Finished the West Coast Trail

west coast trailI just finished hiking the West Coast Trail.  It was fricken awesome.  So glad I did it.  I’ll have a complete report posted on my website in a short while. Update: trip log is complete on my website now, see the previous link.

Looking forward to a Carribbean cruise in Febuary of 2005.  Ports include Belize, Panama and Costa Rica.  Hope they have had time to clean up after the hurricanes.  Update: cruise was awesome.  Posted a page with a sort of year end summary of 2004 including the cruise pictures

Started a 6 week fitness boot camp at my club, Club Fit here in Edmonton.  Six weeks of cardio and drills for 1.5 hours first thing in the morning.  This added to a new six week heavy weight training program and I hope to drop 2% bodyfat and gain at least three pounds of muscle.  Watch my Former Fat Guy Blog for more details when I get them posted.

Update: Here’s my initial post when I started bootcamp, here is my first post of my bootcamp week in review , and here is my post after a full month of bootcamp.  I’ve done many more since, but never seem to complete them for one reason or another.  My dad passed away during one, so I left Edmonton to spend time with him in Saskatchewan, then I had to leave early another time to go on a cruise and another time I had to leave early due to travels.  It’s a hell of a program that Club Fit puts on and I recommend it to anyone in the Edmonton area.  If you’re looking for bootcamp in your neck of the woods, do so and get started.  They’re great
