Weekly Round Up: A Big Deal


A weekly round up: eats, workouts, watches, and reads.  In this week's edition I'm going to tell you why this week was a VERY BIG DEAL for our family, share some food stuff, and an epic movie.

Let's Go Places: Marietta, Ohio

I had the pleasure of spending last weekend in Marietta, Ohio.  On the first day it was just a pretty town.  On the second day I encountered something profound that made me step back and say "Whoa!  Why isn't everyone talking about this????"

If you're new here, the rest of my family is heavily involved in Boy Scouts, which means that they go camping one weekend every month.  My mission is that when they get out of the house, I get out of the house and go somewhere cool.  "Somewhere cool" is far enough away from home that I need to stay overnight, but not so far that it's a pain to get to. 

Just a note, I took a ton of pictures but I don't feel that I got the definitive "this is what Marietta is" shot.  I'll just have to get that on my next visit.

Weekly Round Up: Catching Up


A weekly round up: eats, workouts, watches, and reads.  This weekend was Boy Scout camp weekend, which means that the menfolk went to the woods and I went on an out of town adventure!

Weekly Round Up: Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome


A weekly round up: eats, workouts, watches, and reads.

The men in my life have brought home a lot of inspirational sayings from Boy Scouts.  One of my favorites is "improvise, adapt, and overcome".  In this week's edition I'm going to show you how that played out in our meals this week, plus another round of "movies that I remember incorrectly from the 1980's".

Heads up: there's gonna be some weight/diet talk in the books section this week, so bail after the movie discussion if that's not your thing.

The Good Fish Co - Reel 'Em in or Throw 'Em Back?


Hey friends, after a long hiatus, I'm back with a job interview story!  The purpose of this post is to keep myself honest about making a good decision for my next work gig and to show what goes on behind the closed doors of the job search process.

TL&DR: I don't think that The Good Fish Co is Mr. Right but I'm tempted to make them Mr. Right Now.

Weigh In Wednesday: It's Not Wednesday

Hey Friends - it's not Wednesday and this isn't really about weight loss.  This is a long overdue update on two issues that I've talked about on the blog: my weight and my job.

TL&DR: my weight loss plans are off the table for now, my job misery has gone to a new low, and I started therapy today.

Weekly Round Up: Low Key


A weekly round up: eats, workouts, watches, and reads.  What a difference a week makes.  Last weekend we were on the road - Boy Scout camp for the guys and all over the midwest for me - and this weekend was a quiet weekend at home.
