Mayday 2: The heat is on

It was hot today.  Not full on summer heat type hot but hot enough to feel it on my run.  Luckily my daughter has a breeze (generated by me) and an awning on her stroller.  That being said here is how I did on Mayday 2. Sleep, yeah, was still not good.  Two sessions of […]

Mayday 1

  So how did I do?  Sleep (not a goal but will post it anyway) = Not so good.  Balanced Breathing =  did 1 recorded session and practiced the second on my drive home.  No sweets and I crushed the steps.  More to follow.

Moderation May

It’s April 30th and I’ve been blogging everyday (for the most part) other than Sundays for four months now.  Ever since Lent I have noticed that my sweet tooth has emerged, not quite with a vengeance, but maybe rearing his ugly head more often than I would like. “It is not good to eat too […]

Looking Up

Sometimes I am struck by the sky.  Moments of contrasting clouds and blue framed by the trees.  Pictures don’t always do these moments justice.  Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t.  When I experience them I am in awe of God’s creation.

Fit(bit)ness Friday

I wanted to do a new series starting today.  I’m calling it Fit(bit)ness Fridays.  I wrote about my Fitbit ChargeHR and the issues I had with the strap in a previous post.  I was happy with everything except that issue.  Well that issue was resolved when I purchased (with birthday money) the Charge2 a couple […]

Breath Control

I was teaching a class today the balanced breathing skill.  Essentially, a deep breathing technique that I have mentioned before and can be found here and here and of course here.  The reason why I mention it so much is you have to keep doing it every day otherwise you don’t get the benefits that having a […]

I Felt the Rain

It was a rainy day.  I tend to like rainy days.  Even thunderstorms appeal to me (as long as I don’t have to drive in them).  But as such rain tends to keep me inside and I can’t walk as much.  So my step count today was going to be low.  Even so I got […]

Beyond the Surface

“Sound judgment is praised,     but people without good sense     are on the way to disaster. If you have good sense,     you will act sensibly,     but fools act like fools.” Proverbs 13:15-16 Last Friday Brian on Daily Audio Bible, had a great discussion about the above scripture as well as Jesus’ answering the question […]

Dad Project…finally done

When my wife was pregnant we drove several hours to meet my father-in-law halfway between our homes in order to get an old antique secretary desk.  The plan was to sand and repaint it to go in our foyer. We brought it home and then, well, life happened.  To the tune of a pregnant wife, […]
