Happy Birthday Uncle John (Reynolds)!


Just the look on his face took away 50% of the angst I still harbor about John licking his fingers/coating my glasses as a kid during our Williamsport, PA visits. (No, really. Not.) ;)

Help Will in Scouting: Popcorn YUM!

Popcorn. You eat it while you play World of Warcraft (WOW), watch Netflix movies, update FaceBook and Twitter, code HTML, rock out to The Beatles Rock Band on your PS3 & 360, and just watching The Colbert Report and John Stewart. Why not help a Scout with your purchase through Oct. 25? William and Pack 218 in Apex, NC needs you. (Remember, Kevin Rose was a Scout!)

Greetings! As you may know, William started his Scouting journey last year as a Tiger Scout.

As his Den Leader, I enjoyed working with him and eight other young boys and their parents. Together we learned the values of Scouting and took on our first responsibilities to each other and our local community. We helped the NC Food Back box up more than a ton of food for local pantries, watched the WakeMed rescue helicopter land at a monthly Pack meeting, went camping on three occasions, toured a local NBC TV station, and so much more.

As we begin Will's Wolf year in Cub Scouts, I'm reaching out again with an invitation to participate in his Scouting adventures.

Times are tough, and we're being asked to shoulder a little more responsibility as our annual, once-a-year POPCORN sale gets underway.

Instead of $375, Will is being asked to earn $400 for Troop 218. This money helps us camp, buy badges, support our local District, and help community members in need via our local volunteer efforts.

There's two great ways to participate:


1. Like last year, we're selling yummy Trail's End popcorn. There are lots of new products offered online, like flavored almonds and a limited edition BSA tote. (The chocolate popcorn is still available, but is only 1/2 as coated, so it's easier on the waistline/still tastes amazing.)

A full 70% of your purchase will be returned to Will, my unit and my council.

Just click here and place an order on my behalf and it will ship directly to your home/give us credit.

NOTE: To be sure Will gets credit, please place your order between Sat., Sept. 26 through Oct. 15.

2. You could take another route and have 100% of your money go towards our local Pack: a direct donation. This is less fun than getting popcorn, but cuts out the middle man/gets Will to his goal even faster by not cutting up the popcorn sale to the middle man, etc.

If you wish, you may write a check to Pack 218 and mail it to: Master William McLain, 316 Chapel Valley Lane, Apex, NC 27502. Need to have it in hand by Oct. 20 to count towards his goal.

Either a donation or an online purchase would help us fund fun, educational activities here in NC, and help more kids experience all the things that make Scouting great. 

Thanks for your support,
Tim (and William!)

Weekend: Rest
Nutrition/Eating Log


The perfect way to start a Friday -- Shaun T pushes you for 20 minutes, then just when you think you can't go on: "Come ON ya'all! Let's GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

Smiles on all the faces, the music changes, and BOOM everyone's back down in it, he's grunting away, and you find your third and last set of reps are the best of them all.

So good.

Onward with tons of ProQuest updates today, a new issue of our beloved Retroview email newsletter slated for early Oct. release, some stats to pull, video to make, and more.

Star Wars Rebel Death EXPOSED

Kutztown University Days: 1991

Ok, not all are flattering, but it was what it was. Full collection here.







Insanity | Week 2
Pure (Insane) Cardio
Nutrition/Eating Log


Nothing like a flat-out, 42 minute workout. With a single break -- warm up for 10 minutes, crazy-Shaun T-style, pause for 30 blessed seconds, then a full half-hour of crazy moves. With nary a built-in break.

Didn't stop many of the youngin's in the crowd from taking theirs. Early. And often.

Took about 1/2 what they did, proud of that -- but man, this one works you. Hard. Good thing my lungs and legs are solid from these years of Beachbody workouts. Nary a wheeze. Just lots of great muscle feedback and fatigue, followed by controlled breathing, and sweating. Lots. of. SWEATING.

All good -- on to a dreary, overcast, lightly raining day here in NC.

Love the old school Amiga pic I found above -- three guesses who that artist is. Yea, you got it. Found it right after my old friend Greg Brisson posted a video of our days at Kutztown University in the early 1990's. Small world. Facebook for the old time win. Will post some photos from his video later. Prepare yourself...

Insanity | Week 1
Fri: Plyometric Cardio Circuit
Sat: Upper Body Resistance + Lawn Mow/Aeration!/Feed+Seed
Sun: Blessed REST
Nutrition/Eating Log


What a great way to start a Friday. Tired rolling out of bed, making some black coffee, slap on the ol' cross-trainers, pair of fans, then let Shaun T rock it out.

If you're doing Insanity, you may hit the same wall I do. About 9 minutes left, on the final two routines, you're down on the ground doing push-ups, leg extensions, then ski jumps in plank, then in and outs -- yikes.

This gets pretty intense in this downward position. So I've started to clear my head, focus on:

1. Breathing
2. Form (As flat a back as I can manage!)
3. Counting 10-15 reps for each move, outloud, while grunting
4. Pausing for 3 breaths when the thighs start to scream BREAK TIME

I think it's the rep counting that's helping me max the burn. I've been focused on the moves/learning the routines, now I can focus on the output in total.

Heck, even the warm up feels like a warm up now. First 1/3rd of the DVD is just getting ready for the real deal, and Mummy Kicks/all the rest = pretty nuts for getting "ready." A little sweat, not as much as last week, then ready to drop in for the Insane 2/3rds that is... Plyo Cardio Circuit.

Enjoy your Friday -- back in it for Day 6 of Week 1 FULL tomorrow for the Sat. morning win.

Sat. = upper body weight lifting conditioning. Who said Insanity doesn't involve weights? Mix up some cardio moves with some great new weightlifting positions and you have an hour of greatness. Wow. Off to Will's soccer game, then some lawn aeration/mowing/seeding?


Man-sized hamburgers = keeping BeachBody
in business since... well, for a long time!

Bill Maher's New Rule (FULL): You can't complain about health care reform if you're not willing to reform your own health. Unlike most liberals, I'm glad all those teabaggers marched on Washington last week. Because judging from the photos, it's the first exercise they've gotten in years. Not counting, of course, all the Rascal scooters there, most of which aren't even for the disabled. They're just Americans who turned 60 and said, "Screw it, I'm done walking." These people are furious at the high cost of health care, so they blame illegals, who don't even get health care. News flash, Glenn Beck fans: the reason health care is so expensive is because you're all so unhealthy.

Yes, it was fun this week to watch the teabaggers complain how the media underestimated the size of their march, "How can you say there were only 60,000 of us? We filled the entire mall!" Yes, because you're fat. One whale fills the tank at Sea World, that doesn't make it a crowd.

President Obama has identified all the problems with the health care system, but there's one tiny issue he refuses to tackle, and that's our actual health.

And since Americans can only be prodded into doing something with money, we need to tax crappy foods that make us sick like we do with cigarettes, and alcohol -- and alcohol actually serves a useful function in society in that it enables unattractive people to get laid, which is more than you can say for Skittles.

I'm not saying tax all soda, but certainly any single serving of soda larger than a baby is not unreasonable. If you don't know whether you burp it or it burps you, that's too big. We need to make taking care of ourselves an issue of patriotism. If you were someone who condemned Bush for not asking Americans to sacrifice for the war on terror, the same must be said for Obama and health care.

Insanity | Week 1
Pure Cardio
Nutrition/Eating Log


Four stars. A+. That's my review of Insanity Pure Cardio. Flat out from stem to stern. Folks dropping out left and right in the final 10 minutes to take a breather. Shaun pusing so hard that he can't talk. Sweat pouring, calories flaming, all good. One for the record books.

Enjoying my first full week of Insanity, and glad I had the mini-set at the end of last week. My body cried out, complained, had a day to rest, now in it and not feeling any pain/weakness. Powering through the moves. Enjoying the burn.

Also really feeling great using Shakeology. It's the perfect mid-morning snack for me. A healthy breakfast post-workout, a few hours of work, then at 10 a.m. or so my body cries out for one of these shakes. Full of amazing nutrients and some protein, super foods, and all the rest. Fuels me up, till noon hits and BAM I'm hungry again.

That is one main things I can say about the program to date -- Insanity WILL boost your metabolism. You WILL need to eat five small, quality meals a day, or you will get headaches/feel it in more ways than one. By the end of P90X round 7 my body was 100% adapted. I wasn't getting hungry, didn't feel anything changing. Insanity? Yikes. It's all new, all Plyometrics, all new moves, more intense, and my body needs more energy and needs it regularly.

Just as it should be. I'll keep pushing (play). For life. Thanks BeachBody!

Insanity | Week 1
Cardio Recovery
Nutrition/Eating Log


Actually came into this early a.m. "recovery" feeling not so much in need of a break. Still, no sense in bucking the routine. REALLY felt some of the moves in the final third, holding some pretty crazy crouches/squats for LONG periods, followed by 16 pulses each. Yeouch/burn for the win.

Steel gray skies in NC today, a little chilly, love it. Suzanne, our neighbor, is over finishing the second coat of light green glossy paint in our kitchen. (Original owners painted the whole house in FLAT. I mean... really?)

Easing into the new Insanity workouts nicely. Hit the reps and sweat hard today, didn't have to pause more than twice for full 60-second breaks (paused approx. 4 times in the workouts last week!) and felt stronger throughout.

Insanity | Week 1
Plyometric Cardio Circuit
Nutrition/Eating Log


And so it begins -- the mini-intro to Insanity completed, Sunday rest (lots of outdoor trimming/Fall work anyway) now on to REAL Week 1. Starting with the big Daddy of the lot so far, pushed like a madman, hit the wall with about 9 minutes to go, and sweated through to the end.

Not a bad way to start a Monday. I'm seeing into the future where, tough as this routine is, I'll be able to do all the moves w/normal breaks and no collapsing. Then it will be adding reps. Nice.

Sat.: Cardio Recovery
Sun.: Rest

Just in the nick of time, two days of pure Insanity, followed by a Saturday break for some recovery. Still got a little intense in the last third, but nothing I couldn't handle. Excellent way to smooth out the very rough spots/soreness, and my calves are still twinged a bit and were begging for mercy all day yesterday.

Now to rest on Sunday, and back in it for a true, full Week 1 run starting on Monday.

Off to the Lenovo HQ here in Morrisville, NC for their warehouse sale. Hoping to net a crazy-good and cheap(er) laptop for the D.C. Kinyon's household use. All good. Should be fun!

I'm WHAT? + Friday Night Funny



Insanity | Kick-Off Week 1
Cardio Power & Resistance
Nutrition/Eating Log


45 minutes of Insanity = good for the soul. A little less insane than yesterday, perhaps because this little gem focuses more on the upper body and hamstrings, two of the areas P90X build up in a big way. Still finished with a solid sweat and a little left in the tank at the end -- all good.

Insanity? Yea, you're insane. In a good way. I'll keep pushing play.

Had to repost this excellent entry from Seth Godin -- it embodies what my career has been focused on since 1993.

That is, teaching people to use technology to better education. Simple as that. Less anger/reaction, more proactive work everyday to slowly move the needle in the right direction.

Whether that's getting the first teachers online through countless Classroom Connect newsletters, curriculum integration videos, and 14+ books under the CC name, or helping schools make great use of their online research sources at ProQuest.

More words from the master insighter:

Taking the time to teach

What we do in the long run, over time, drip by drip, affects the market so much more than an angry reaction or urgent event.

Smoking a pack a day for twenty years is a great way to be sure you'll die early. Far more likely, in fact, than getting hit by a car. And yet it's so easy to talk to our kids about cars...

Delivering out of the box remarkability day after day counts for far more than one hit or one misstep. When we teach people about our story or our industry our about making connections, the teaching lasts.

Teaching people not only impacts the market, it changes the world. Teaching about connection and community and science, a little bit at a time, can heal our world in the long run. It doesn't happen as fast as we might like, but it works. Emergencies fade, and in the long run our teaching lasts.

The challenge is in responding with education, not reacting with anger.

Insanity | Kick-Off Week 1
Plyometric Cardio Circuit
Nutrition/Eating Log


Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, for your consideration, Tim's post #666. I give no warranty, express or implied, as to its content. You may take every letter to heart, or none. You may relate to my experiences, or not. You may find my words to be of the highest good, or 666-inspired less-than-good.

All that said (OK Mr. Lawyer, you can leave now to chase your ambulance under our health care system my conservative friends like so much and no one should "touch") today was truly Day 1 of Insanity. It's the all-new fitness craze, crammed with the very latest in interval training techniques.

It's tough. Very tough.

Minimal breaks, more sweat-inducing moves crammed into 30-40 minutes than you've probably ever done. The last 8 minutes of workout = 20ish from any other routine -- it's crammed tight with tough moves that just keep coming.

P90X Plyometrics was a great warm up. Jettison the 60 second breaks in P90X. Make 'em 30 in Insanity. Then take the pair of sets from Plyo, and add a third.

Swap the 10-15 seconds of real intensity from P90X and stretch it to 60 very full seconds.

Finally, add a few moves to each set. Then get ready to rock.

The warm up everyone's talking about -- yep, it'll push you harder than most "workouts." And I was ultra-glad to see that the exact moment I felt I needed my first break mid-rep was the same exact time the first few guys did the same in the DVD.

P90X, Tony Horton, thanks. You've brought me to an excellent level of fitness in Power 90 and P90X.

Now it's graduation time, and Shaun T is waiting in his Insanity Dojo to bring me to Level 3.

Taking in tons of water, enjoying the cooler weather, rocking my standup desk here in my office, watching my food intake, and already seeing the scale move from 190 to 188 post-Lancaster-PA Labor Day break.

Onward!

Insane? Maybe a little. In a good way. I mean that in a GOOD way.


Insanity | Kick-Off Week 1
Fit Test
Nutrition/Eating Log


Chances are, you've heard of P90X. That is, if you've ever found it hard to sleep, cracked on the TV, and spun the dial. Infomercials. Promises. Before and after photographs. Testimonials. Tony Horton pushing play and Carl talking about kicking plateau's in the teeth every 30 days, and coming out the 90th looking ripped, sculpted, in "the best shape of your life."

And it's all true folks. I've done seven full rounds of three months each. Basically, a bit under two solid years of P90X, with minor breaks here and there. Even tacked on some mountain biking to add the icing to the cake. Discovered that my first rounds were lacking impact due to not tracking my calories, so tweaked the final ingredient in the past two rounds to maximum effect.

Started round 1 at 230, came out of round 7 at 185 pounds, best shape of my life, and shadows of abs appearing where I knew they should be. But there's still work to be done. (That's life -- these aren't 90 or even 60 day programs. They're life programs. Foeva.)

Which brings me to today's insanity. Literally. Insanity (best described here) is a new Max Interval Training program that, instead of 90 days, promises results in a mere 60. Two months, six days a week, of -- what it seems to me -- looks a lot like doing the P90X Plyometrics routines with new moves (no weights) all but one day a week. (Movie/more about Insanity here.)

Bring it. I need the challenge! Today was Day 1, the Fit Test. Eight moves, one minute each, record the max number. It left me, 40 minutes later, a sweaty guy, breathing hard. No wheezing. Proud of my numbers and anxious to do BETTER. More reps than the skinny guy who finished the program, and less in some moves than the insanely good-form-in-every-move woman.

Clearly, P90X has brought me to a respectable level of fitness. Now it's time to blow the lid off.

My Fit Test Day 1 numbers:

Switch Kicks: 122
Power Jacks: 55
Power Knees: 75
Power Jumps: 51
Globe Jumps: 9 (Extra Rest here...)
Suicide Jumps: 16 (EXTRA REST here!)
Push-Up Jacks: 21
Low Plank Oblique: 60

Very proud of the last one. Getting into plank and then bringing your knee to your chest on each side = hard. At about 30 I wanted to quit. Then I said, just do it. Keep going till you collapse. Collapse = didn't happen. 60 reps happened instead.

Will keep up the short mini-Week 1 tomorrow, and count NEXT week as the pure, solid, Week 1. More of a taste this week. All good.

Watch out Shaun T. I'm coming for you. Is it any surprise that tomorrow will mark my 666th blog post here at mclainhome.blogspot.com? The universe is unfolding as it should...

What a long Labor Day weekend. Family. Food. Fun. Really enjoyed the Long's Park Arts & Crafts Show in Lancaster, PA, William got to spend some one on one time with his cousins in Allentown, and we celebrated Doug and Deb's BDay's a little early. Excellent.

I managed to keep the food intake fairly close to what I wanted, give or take some desserts here and there. Feeling a little more jolly than before I left for PA, and very anxious to refocus and begin... Insanity.

Tomorrow. Fit test.
