Gym Notes #2

About Pumping Iron to Lose Weight   ——I am an advocate of going to a gym. Except for when I’m traveling or a ‘super’ high priority blocks me out, I’m at the gym at least three times a week, usually four and on rare occasions I’ve done five…, never a sixth—yet. Seventy-five to 90 minutes […]

Gym Notes #1

Up until three weeks ago I’ve been pretty steady going to the gym for a few months. Three weeks ago, I forewent the gym to do work on rehabbing a bathroom that had gone in serious decline. This week I did four days to get back in the swing of exercising. I’m not a fitness […]

Anacapa Island SCUBA dive

My first SCUBA dive experiences in the waters off Southern California were, for me anyway, not much fun. I went for my very first two certification dives at the SCUBA park on Catalina Island. Had it not been for equipment malfunctions I might have done my next two there to finish up the cert. I won’t go […]
