Miracle of Cleaning

Life is an endless series of train wrecks…. It’s been a months…. I’d like to say it’s been a day, or even a week, but it has been going on three months, and it is hard to remain optimistic. Usually I can, I can… Continue Reading “Miracle of Cleaning”

The Magic of Repetition

I’ve been waking up every morning for two weeks at 6:15. There was only one snafu, and that was on me. I mean, the weekends are also sacred, so those are days off, just because I have time to do my routine later in… Continue Reading “The Magic of Repetition”

Congestive Heart Failure

Click bait! Kind of. I wish it was more click bait than it is. Since Sunday I’ve been having heart palpitations. It’s that thing where you have a flutter in your chest, but it’s not because of some gorgeous woman you’re in love with.… Continue Reading “Congestive Heart Failure”

Whole30 Take 2

It all started about three weeks ago. A friend asked if I was interested in doing Tough Mudder in Chicago next year. It’s in August. Truthfully it’s in Rockford, but it just has to be within two hours. The Milwaukee one when I went… Continue Reading “Whole30 Take 2”

Swimming in Molasses

I didn’t want to go to the gym. I didn’t want to workout. I just finished with the Guatemala group, and I thought, I could go home, cook dinner, watch an episode of Leverage, and write and read. But I’m fat and I don’t want… Continue Reading “Swimming in Molasses”

Pool Debacle

Being A Titan

I caved the other day. After being disappointed I couldn’t buy an FWC shirt from Destiny, I purchased the Last Light Installation shirt and a Titan water bottle. What’s a Titan? It’s a force of nature which wrecks bad guys. That’s what. In Destiny,… Continue Reading “Being A Titan”

Our society is poisoning itself

I’ve been trying to eat healthy. Get in the right amount of carbs, vegetables, proteins, and so on. I eyeball it, don’t get me wrong, but I know processed is bad, fresh is good, so this has been my guiding star. I’m going away… Continue Reading “Our society is poisoning itself”

Performing Rituals

I love rituals. Not religious ones (though I do appreciate a good litany), but life habits. The human body works best with rituals. The mind knows what is about to happen, and prepares for it. It sets you up for success. My gym routine… Continue Reading “Performing Rituals”

It’s a Bright Sunny Day

It started yesterday, and while there were a few down moments, overall I’m sunshine and rainbows right now. It felt like I haven’t been losing weight. My gut still looks as big as it was, my neck is thick under the chin, and self… Continue Reading “It’s a Bright Sunny Day”
