Doug Flora – A man of many Gifts I know that many have a heavy heart regarding Doug’s passing…so do I. But, I also have a feeling of exultation and an uplifted spirit because I was privileged enough to know Doug. I first became acquainted with Doug Flora when, as a parent, he supported his […]

Still Sugar Free and Weight Loss! So, I have now been sugar free for 2 weeks. I won’t drag it out but here is the tale of the tape including weight loss. Weight – down 2 lbs (from 220.2 – 218) Waistline – down 1.25 inches (39 – 37.75) Bodyfat – down half a percentage […]
Update on Sugar Free 30 Days So far Sugar-Free is going great. I had one little foul-up and ended up eating trace elements of salsa that had added sugar. I doubt if I even consumed 1 gram with my goof. Honestly, the biggest change was substituting half-n-half in place of my Carnation French Vanilla creamer. […]

This most recent Saturday we held a training clinic for all Brown Belts and Black Belts. This clinic was not exclusively for my own students but also […]
Fresh Fruit in the “sugar-free” lifestyle I like cheese…as I mentioned yesterday…but I really like to pair cheese with fresh fruit. Now, for the purposes of this 30 day journey, I am trying to stay withing the confines of fresh fruit and not use canned or dried fruit for the most part. There is obviously […]
Big Cheese Assortment Do you feel like you are the Big Cheese. Are you All That? I just saw a commercial on television where John Stamos says, “I’m just a regular guy. Just kidding, I am actually Spectacular!” Well, many of the articles and reports that I have read give an account whereby the person […]
I’m not sugar free because I already messed up! Not sugar free? I was completely sugar free (for all of 24 hours) until I wasn’t. Yesterday (Thursday) I thought it would be a great “sugar free” idea to have some scrambled eggs with salsa. So wrong! After scooping out 3 healthy sized tablespoons of my […]
