66) Make a protein shake 22 Mar 2012

Having just returned from a rigorous couple’s workout sesh (short form for session in aerobics lingo), I am feeling completely energized, keen, focused and ready to delve into a month of intensive training in preparation for our next big adventure (more about that in later posts).

Our couple’s training will include: morning power walks to the Don River before work; backyard workout sessions to Missy Elliot; bike rides to the suburbs; well-balanced meals; and a daily protein shake to build and retain our muscles.

We. Are. Pumped.

PS: John doesn’t know yet, but I found one of those fuzzy aerobics headbands for him for tomorrow’s sesh. :)

He provides biological and anthropological evidence for how every disease that consumes us today is a result of the agricultural revolution from about 10 000 years ago. Start here:

      Paul – I’ve heard about this in passing. I will look into it. There always seems to be new evidence about the next best thing in health science. It’s hard to keep up. Call me a traditionalist, but I’m a firm believed that a well-balanced meal is the way to go.
