Finding My WHM Mojo Again

So I’m back into the full swing of WHM, and have been pushing myself pretty hard with the cold exposure.  And keeping a diary of the cold sessions.  Keep in mind that I documented a few weeks of WHM training about a year ago, so I am not a newbie to this stuff.  I did…

New WHM Book and Training

A couple things happened at the same time that inspired my re-entry into WHM.  The first was that some people from my job posted about a team polar plunge.  I had been meaning to get back into WHM at some point, and this seemed like good motivation, like my wife signing up for running races…

Ten Minute Cold Shower Challenge

Well I did it. Had a really deep, meditative WHM breathing session, and I spontaneously decided to do the ten-minute challenge that Wim prescribes in the fourth week of his 10-week course. The temperature was slightly higher (around 55-60 F) for the first five minutes, but then lowered it to its ~50F level for the last 5 minutes.…

Makergear M2 – Better Prints
