My @Whole30 experience

On my continuous quest to hack my own body I came across the Whole30 and decided to give it a try. According to the official web-site the Whole30 is “a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you put an end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance […]

Public Safety

I was talking to a friend of mine on Twitter and he said something like “There are no safe places in Brazil. Not even inside your house”. Well, that’s true and I’ll tell a little about how things work down there for your amusement. First of all: Unlike most houses here in Canada, which are […]

Slow meal

I’m a big fan of Tim Ferris and a couple months ago I read his best-seller “The 4 Hour Work Week” again. There is a lot of good stuff there, including good ideas on life style. One that is easy and cheap to implement is taking one meal a week and make it a ‘slow […]


I believe most of us could use a little more toughness. I certainly could. No shame to admit I’m nowhere as tough as I would like to be. That’s a work in progress. I started thinking about it back in October 2013 when I read this post at the Art of Manliness. This says it […]

Smarter, not harder #crossfit #running

I can’t even remember properly now, but I think my first race was early 2011. It wasn’t timed or anything. One of those fund raising races. I had just started running and that 5K was brutal. I ended up with bloody nipples and blisters on my heel. But getting there was hard training for what I […]

Well… That was unexpected

I’m a very resilient guy. I don’t say that to brag, but because it’s true. I’m not as tough as I would like to be, but that’s a work in progress. So I surprised myself when earlier this year I decided to throw the towel. It was time to move on. My job was not making […]

2013 in review

I think 2013 will be the last exciting year for the next while. We got a lot of things done, attained some goals and crossed stuff from the bucket list. All that required preparation, laying some bases, hard training and saving money during the previous years, which is what I see myself doing for the […]


Six years and counting. That’s how long I’ve been living in Canada. And still, I had to check Google to see if that is “I’ve been” or “I’ve being”. See, English is my second language. Some of it’s rules and grammar are easier to grasp, but some not so much. I have no doubt about […]

Agora eu quero ver

Como a esposa já tinha dito no blog dela, ela foi para Montreal passar uma semana estudando francês (e passeando, lógico) enquanto eu mantenho as coisas aqui funcionando. Na teoria. Verdade seja dita, nunca fiquei uma semana sozinho em casa. Antes de me casar, mesmo quando meus pais iam viajar sempre tinha uma empregada que… Read More »
