The Weightless Project & Lent

Its that time again; it’s the end of the month, and wanted to do a quick update on my weightless project. I am not proud to say that I’ve actually gained a little weight. However, I think my next check-in is going to be a little bit different than my previous two, but before I…

The Power of Unseen Moments

I read a very interesting post the other day about the power and science of marginal gains (in fact it was in the title: What Would Happen If You improved Everything by 1%: The Science of Marginal Gains).

The Weightless Project — 1 month later

I just wanted to a little check in case people were actually following my progress. I am currently one month into the Fitbit/Weightless project.

Working out to Feed the Hungry

If you recall in my previous post I brought up that I was going to exercise more this year. Well, I meant it. I went out and got my Fitbit. I spent the extra money and grabbed the one with a watch (I figured if I’m already spending the money, it should also tell time,…

Feisty Little Melon Farmer

You are probably asking yourself what a feisty little melon farmer is. In this case its referring to our future child. Our twenty week ultrasound was tonight, and it was amazing! At our first ultrasound our child was no more than a black and white peanut being looked at from outer space. Tonight, however, he/she…

My New Year’s Resolution

New Year’s resolutions… I think we can all be honest with ourselves and admit that they really don’t make a lot of sense in today’s world. By the time we make a resolution some new technology or information will be introduced that tempts our resolve or sometimes even make the resolution irrelevant. At one time…
