My last blog post about absence and a bigger gut... yeah, well, I was right then, and I'm still right. So, last year I deleted about 55 lbs. from my fa... Read more

**Somewhat serious post--will resume sarcasm and irreverence after today.** So, I've "been away." Not in the literal sense, though I do travel a lot. In the sense that sometime around October of last year, I lost my way in this healthy livi... Read more

Was in Monterrey, Mexico all week. Exercised two days (yay!!), ate like a horse for four (crap!). Looong days. Breakfast 7:30 (with client), meetings, one-on-one, coaching, etc. scheduled back-to-back all day. Straight from client office to dinn... Read more

Ok, I have GOT to get back in the game with my weight loss. About 50lbs down since August, but nothing much in the last two months. And no, it's not some inexplicable, physics-defying plateau that cannot be figured out. It's simply too many calo... Read more

Captain's log, stardate 20160409. These are the adventures of the starship Tub-o'-lard... That's about how I feel. Three days at Augusta National watching the Masters practice rounds with a big group of guys... Let's just say that heal... Read more

So... I received a message from someone a tad upset that I hadn't blogged in a while. My first reaction is "gimme a freakin' break!" I have two work-related blogs, a monthly newsletter, a LinkedIn account and two twitter accounts that consu... Read more

OK, SparkPeople, time to recalibrate. Yesterday, the article you emailed me for my morning read was about eating smartly while on a date. I read carefully, took notes, and thoughtfully considered each and every suggestion and tip. Now,... Read more

4 days in Monterrey, Mexico this month. That's too long for a single stretch. I'm something of a homebody at times, and my social skills begin to drastically deteriorate after about 48 hours. Some people claim it's much quicker than that... So,... Read more

Friday. Damn straight. Been a busy but productive week. No travel, so no idiotic travel stories. Not sure if that's good or bad. Next week, out 4 days, so doing this Spark stuff will be a challenge. Particularly while in Mexico... I tend to... Read more
Old MacDonald and the shopping saga...
Saturday, January 09, 2016      8 comments

Grocery shopping today. Speaks to the pure unadulterated excitement that permeates my life; Saturday morning at the grocery store. Starts at the local farmers market, an incredible resource. Local farmers only, lots of stuff. Today I got br... Read more

Well, it's Friday... What a week. Lots of client crap interfered with my "do-nothing" plans. Traveled a bit. Met Christine, a hot (seriously) TSA employee at Houston's IAH. I may have mumbled to my colleague about my willingness to submit t... Read more

Traveling today. Did I mention how much I TRULY hate traveling anymore?? I believe we should get "line credit" added back to our lives for all the time spent standing in lines. Airlines? Please. Their give-a-sh!t disappeared long ag... Read more

I've got my "stuff" together! (Tried to say sh!t, but SP wouldn't let me, dammit!) New year, same me. Life doesn't give resets, merely the opportunity to start doing different at any time. I may do some of that... I've got a lo... Read more

My 20-year old daughter caught a stomach bug of some sort. Talked to that big white telephone for three solid days, then miraculously just "felt better." I, of course, did not. Only my reaction to that likely-same-bug of hers was--literally... Read more
