New Site


Just a reminder if your still following my old feed or if you happen to stop by.

I’ve moved, come join the fun.

Also, if you could update your blogroll, that would be appreciated!

Moving Day!


So in honor of my buddy Noreaster, I have chosen to be technically correct in giving you my announcement. Since 12:00AM Eastern time is the technically correct time that this message should be available, I have posted it then 🙂

SO, what is it?!?!?!

This blog is moving. I have been working for the last month on designing and hosting a new blog at a new address. This new blog will become my new home. I am hoping that all of you, my faithful readers will follow me over.

There is a post at the new blog, explaining some of the features and requesting a couple things from you regarding changing my links in your blogroll and alos subscribing to my new feed.

So…head on over and enjoy!


Well I am disappointed this week. Early in the week I had a horrid time keeping my cravings under control. I didn’t eat too poorly, but I did not eat appropriately. Also, I only worked out once this last week. I had resigned myself to laying low this week and it showed.

I know for certain I didn’t drink enough water this week. I still ate lots of salad and fruits, but definitely mixed some breads, sugars and larger portions in.

We have some great friends coming in a couple of weeks, so I am committed to taking the next 2 weeks and working hard! I know we will have a more relaxed schedule when they come and I want to know that I’ve gotten closer to my goals before they get here.

So this week, I will be drinking more water. I’ve got a water bottle that’s going with me everywhere now. I will work out a minimum of 4 days this week. I already started last night. And I will be firm on no carbs after 4PM. This will help me from eating when I don’t need to. I’m always hungrier in the evening even when I’ve eaten well during the day, so this will help with the extra pounds.

Well with all that said, Here are this weeks stats…

Beginning week:
Weight 213
Waist 41″
Chest 44 1/4″

Last week!
Weight 198.4
Waist 38”
Chest 43″

This week!
Weight 197.2
Waist 38”
Chest 44″

I dropped another pound and added some back to my chest. I am not surprised about the chest measurement as I’ve been working pretty hard on the weights…besides this last week. I also worked chest last night, so it will tend to be a bit bigger the next day. I am disappointed about the waist. I am anxious to see that thing around 34″!

So let me know how your doing. And don’t forget the big announcement tomorrow AM 🙂

Over the last year I have read post after post about Willow Creek’s new “shift” in ministry. Yes, they are going through changes. Yes, they are evaluating. Yes, they are recognizing successes and failures.

The interesting thing was in the midst of all of this, we started to hear people bash Willow. Basically pointing a finger and saying “we told you so”. Every time I read these kind of articles, I was confused. I couldn’t figure out where these people were getting ther info and why they were convinced they new anything about what Willow Creek was actually doing.

Today Bill Hybels released a short video answering some of the questions. Responding to some of the statements that have been made. And in my opinion redirecting people to who Willow Creek was, is and will always be. He took some time to set the record straight.

Take a moment and check out the video
