Finishing the final render of the sample video shot on Vashon Island Thursday. I'll have that posted by close of business today, all for your viewing and motivational pleasure. It was a most educational 80 mile jaunt around Vashon, seeing first-hand almost the entire island as laid out by the VIRC, Vashon Island Rowing Club, sponsors and organizers of the P2P, passport to pain ride, all 10,000 feet of gain. Looks like something wacky to do come next September. 

As mentioned in our equally wacky 90 minute portage to pain spin this morning, we need to become better readers. As in reading labels. I was presented with an immediate guffaw with the mention that low-fat yogurt contains 32 grams of sugar per serving. And I must now post the correction. I was wrong. IT IS ACTUALLY 35, not 32 grams of the evil powder. Meaning, that if weight loss, or control, is of high importance to you, as it should be, when in doubt - check it out. I think you will be amazed at the places it will show up, wanting a permanent place to hang. 

Like in your house.

Being this the first day of Fall, let's reaffirm our commitment to keep on the path of progress. It is a three-fold path, eat good, work hard, manage stress. Often we can make huge gains simply by adding or subtracting one item per group.

Lose the sugar
Add intensity or frequency
Not so hard. Not like climbing 10K in 78 miles or anything.

Another thing to double check on labels, I think, is calories per "serving size". I will aften look at a label and think that calorie count etc is not so bad for the quantity of stuff and then realize that they talking about per serving and there are 3 or 4 servings in the container.

Absolutely. Portion control. The manufacturers will do anything to get you to repeat buy. ANYTHING. They are kinda like politicians that way.
