June 19 marks the ending of Week 7 and the beginning of Week 8. Week 7 started at 246 lbs. Today I'm starting Week 8 at 242.2 lbs for a weekly loss of 3.8 lbs. I'm very happy with the results but that's not to say that Week 7 didn't have its challenges. Please let... Continue Reading →
Losing A Lifestyle
Lifestyle change. Two simple words that when put together aren't that simple. The last seven weeks have been an adjustment. Each day is still a struggle - easier but still a struggle. This week I've found myself thinking about my journey so far and where I'm headed. If I have any chance of reaching my... Continue Reading →
Why I Chose To Lose
(For reference, this post was originally typed end of May, beginning of June – just never published) May’s passing marks my one-month milestone on my journey. Everyone looks at January as being the month of change, the beginning of a new year and a new you. For me, May was my month of change. When... Continue Reading →
Lose it or lose it!
"On this day..." If you are a regular user of Facebook, this is a feature that is fairly well-known. It creates a feed of statuses and events from your previous years. It was two weeks ago that I happened to scroll through this feed and found pictures of myself from four years before. At that... Continue Reading →
Just Four Words
There are times when you just do not know what to say. I found myself in one of those situations awhile back. Working in retail your daily life can be fairly routine. Almost like clockwork, the same customers come in every day wanting the same order every time. There is little deviation. However, every once in a while, someone comes in that gives you a surprise.
Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Impressions
The last high-end Windows phone that I owned was the Lumia 928 back in May 2013. Since then I’ve owned a Lumia 635 and 640, one a low-end device and the other mid-range respectively (plus an iPhone 6 but we won’t go there for now). In steps the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL...
Ghost the Musical: An Unapologetic (Not So) In-Depth Review
This previous Thursday (February 20, 2014) I had the privilege to once again return to the Hobby Center for Performing Arts in Houston, Texas. My fiancé and I have a season subscription to the Gexa Energy Broadway in Houston. This show was Ghost the Musical based on the Patrick Swayze movie “Ghost.” I had heard that the visuals and illusion type effects were pretty awesome, so I had relatively high hopes for this production. The following is my not so in-depth review...
The Book of Mormon
The best way to describe my experience with the Book of Mormon musical is that it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting but not as good as I had been led to believe. With three Tony Awards (Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score) and a Grammy Award (Best Musical Theater Album) among all the critical acclaim, I was prepared for this show to be quite the performance. And in a way, I suppose it was...
My Life’s Tech – June 2013
I always find it interesting to see what devices and services people use on their daily lives. So I thought I would share a little bit of what I use on a regular basis. As the title suggests I will revisit this topic over time and see what changes, if any, there are in my daily usage. Let us kick this off with the hardware in my life…
On The Hunt
As some of you may know, I recently had the opportunity to take on a promotion at my current place of employment. A position as a department manager. It was not originally the position that I desired, or planned, but I figured management was management and this particular posting could better help me in my short term plans. The ultimate goal was for this new position to be my needed stepping stone into store management training. While this is still the case, the past few months have caused quite a stir internally for me.
