I woke up today and did my normal thing. I ate my now standard breakfast of oatmeal mixed with nuts and fruit, with a cup of piping hot black tea to wash it all down. A few hours later, post workout, I had a quick snack of nuts and a banana, and shortly after I had lunch consisting of peas, corn, chicken and potatoes.

As a kid I watched cartoons and as I grew older I watched more and more sports, sometimes sports I didn’t even care about. I did it because I didn’t know what else to do, and I can thank that one month period for weaning me off this bad habit. Continue reading →
