An Experiment Part 1


Hey everyone!

Sorry it’s been so long since my last post, but as you can imagine, I’ve been pretty busy with the little rascle, getting back to teaching classes, running my other website Major Spoilers, and writing content for SciFi Tech’s blogsite.

In all that time, I haven’t been taking the best care of my body and am really out of shape. How out of shape? 230 lbs. as of this morning. Unacceptable. Instead of going all out on a insane crazy exercise routine, I’m going to do a little experiment (I already know the outcome), but perhaps you can participate with me.

Experiment #1: No Soda

For the next 30 days (and preferably longer), I’m giving up all sodas, pops, carbonated sugar water.

Drinking 2 cans of soda a day is the equivalent of gaining 1 pound every 10 days. Unacceptable.

For this experiment I won’t go out of my way to change my exercise routine (LOL), or my diet in any major way. Just the soda.

Let’s see what happens, shall we?

Stephen Schleicher

Stephen Schleicher is one of those guys that has always loved comics but never got into them until really late in life - like high school in the 80s. He just missed the Crisis on Infinite Earths, but has been around for every major crossover since. Stephen knows his way around video and film production having been a director, producer, editor, and motion graphics artist for projects ranging from small promotional pieces for Wachovia all the way up to regional videos for the Division of Emergency Management. As a prolific writer, Stephen began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen also freelances for the Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog. When not writing, Stephen shares his knowledge as a tenured faculty member at Fort Hays State University. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment.

    You’re on, mate. I rarely drink the stuff anyway =). Hope it works for you.

    Speaking of Major Spoilers, is it down right now? I can’t seem to access it 🙁 But I still enjoyed your reviews on the Sinestro Corps War. Kudos!
