End of March Update

Recently, I made the decision to look for a job closer to home. I'm happy to say that everything has worked out extremely well and I have given up my lengthy GO Train / subway commute into Toronto for a much shorter drive into Kitchener. I'm extremely happy with the change since it cuts two hours off my commuting time each day.

Truly amazing.

To top it all off, I am going to take the entire month of April off before I start my new job. I'm looking forward to spending all of my time around the house and the barnyard. I should be able to get a lot of spring chores checked off my list, although that might be difficult because it's a very long list.

It's funny how ones perspective changes over time. Four years ago I was happy when I made the decision to accept a job offer in Toronto and now I'm happy to return to working more locally.

I don't regret any of the time I spent working in Toronto. I think it actually helped set me on the course that led me to 100 meter diet. For that I am thankful.

As for my weight at the end of March ... it's 160 pounds. I'm eating more lately since I can better gauge how long my food needs to last. No sense ending the diet with food in the freezer!


  1. how wonderful that all has led you to exactly where you need to be! with all of April off, your garden 2011 will no doubt be your best yet!!

  2. great work! especially on the pigz. i dont miss my "big city job" at all. no amount of money is worth that much time commuting. i remember reading "your money or your life" a long time ago and even then it made sense. but i cant believe i'm living that life now!

    congrats on the new job and you are going to have a great April!
