Jiu-Jitsu Boy A.K.A Doom Machine

I got to watch my son, Liam, last night at Jiu-Jitsu class. He told me the other day he wants to be an MMA fighter. I didn’t chuckle out loud at least. Like, me, he’s not a natural athlete and has terrible balance. On the other hand, I’d never crush any kids dream because stranger things have happened. At his age, anything is possible. I told him that every journey begins with a single step. Get good grades and attend Jiu-Jitsu as often as possible. Read more “Jiu-Jitsu Boy A.K.A Doom Machine”

New Fitness & Diet Program

Two of Us Riding Nowwhere, spending Someone’s Hard Earned Pay

Firstly, I’d like to note that these “Fitness Journey” blog posts are really more of a cathartic exercise for capturing my feelings each step of the process. If anyone else wants to read them, which I doubt, I’m ok with that too. I don’t plan to stick these to the front page or really promote them at all. Read more “New Fitness & Diet Program”

Intrafit 6 Week Diet & Fitness Program Begins

 

I Don’t Look Happy

 

As of today, I’m two days into the Intrafit 6 week body shaping program. I started my cardio 3 days ago, getting at least 45 minutes and sometimes 1 hour a day. This program only calls for weights 4 days per week and cardio 3 days, but that’s not realistic for me. Experience has shown me that to drop weight fast, I need that hour of cardio daily.

 

The new diet is interesting. It’s 725 calories per meal consisting of a mix of 20% Complete Protein
60% Carbohydrates and 20% Fats. It’s not calories restrictive at all, just about the mix and that you are supposed to eat every 3 – 4 hours from the time you get up until you go to bed. The result is that I’m basically full all the time. When I don’t get to the meal in the 4 hours though, my energy drops like a stone.

 

The measuring and prepping of the food has been tough. I suppose I will get faster with this work but it’s really caused me to have to get in late and work late and has thrown my schedule out of whack. Eventually I want to get better sleep discipline so I can do my cardio in the morning and have more energy for a more serious workout at night.

Take That Day 1

The Warehouse Office Set

It shouldn’t go without saying that this weekend was AWESOME! It represented a new era for myself as a film maker. We shot the first day of “Take That” our horror comedy starring Morgan Monig, Steven Tucker and Michael Ruff & lensed by Robert W. Filion. The weather tried to throw us a curve ball Saturday, when we were scheduled to film our exteriors, but we got jiggy with it and switched over to our indoor location. What followed was a 21 hour shooting day that was nothing short of epic. The cast and crew all stepped up to create something truly special. Read more “Take That Day 1”
