locavore kyle?

July 9, 2011

Please forgive me for the sloppiness of this post… it hit my brain this morning like a lightning bolt and I sat down to write what I thought would be an intro… and out came the whole thing.  It’s been forever since I’ve gotten a post up on TGK, so my anxiety of allowing this [...]

another lull

May 6, 2011

The lack of posts could be attributed to the new job… or the fact that I’m drivin’ and lovin’ my new car… or that I’ve caught up with the technology age and finally got an iPhone… We’ll blame all three. But we’ll also point the finger at the work blog that I’ve contributed to twice [...]

health review (?)

January 8, 2011

Around the time I started this blog I posted about my New Years General Resolutions.  You can go back and re-read it if you so desire, but I can summarize it for you with ease- I wanted to be healthier.  I think I’ve achieved this.  Not to suggest that I’m a picture of health and [...]

30:30 and a local letdown

December 28, 2010

After spending the first half of this year in a fitness craze, I went in reverse for the second half.  Although the summer was filled with fun activities like kayaking, hiking, skiing and biking, since the turn of chillier weather I’ve gone all out on the two activities I’m best at- eating and drinking. And [...]

local focus

December 13, 2010

Have you ever thought about what you consume and how much of it is produced locally?  Have you ever considered making an effort at localizing the majority of your consumptionistic tendencies?  (I know I made that word up.  Who cares.) This is something that has been on my mind for quite a while now, and [...]

four months

August 5, 2010

If you’ve been reading for a while you might remember my summertime to-do list. I wrote it four months ago when I was getting very amped up for this summer.  We were getting a taste of the weather that was to come, and I was itching for summertime fun. I’m revisiting the list for the [...]

the insanity rant

June 10, 2010

I may be at a lifetime high in terms of cardiovascular fitness.  I may be able to walk up the hill from the beach to the house at the cottage without getting all huffy-puffy out of breath like.  I may be able to leap small buildings in a… ok, not so much that. But I [...]

thou shalt not save bridesmaid dresses **UPDATED**

June 1, 2010

Today I decided to give my closet a massive heave-ho.  Maybe once every couple years or so this mood hits, and I really purge out stuff.  I’ve been beyond frustrated lately with my serious commitment to the Insanity workouts (not joking here- cardio 6 days a week for 5 weeks now)… with no visible results.
