Todays 1lb Success

April 11, 2013


After six months of winter, diets that I thought hard about starting, an increasing dislike for wearing pants, and the same old frustration with that bastard scale not giving-in with a single notion of weakness or sign that it might move at all…. I have lost a pound. That’s right ONE POUND. How’d I do […]

Hooray! A New Failure and Another Step Towards Success

April 8, 2013


Two years ago, I landed my dream job that provided what at the time was endless possibilities, more opportunity than I could handle, a work/life balance that most people dream of and a decent salary to boot.

A Taste of My Own Medicine

April 13, 2011


I haven’t been writing much lately, but there is a very good reason for that. I mentioned a few posts back that I recently landed my dream job. That’s where I’ve been, that’s what I’ve been doing. You know when you first meet someone that you like, you find out that they like you back, […]

The 30 Project: Thank You

April 1, 2011


Yesterday marked the end of the month long effort to raise money for our team Powered By Noie benefiting the Ride to Conquer Cancer. At the beginning of the  month I asked people to donate $30 on my 30th birthday, and later, I asked again for contributions on my Mom’s birthday, March 30th. In total […]
