So, two weeks ago, I told you that I failed to keep my resolution last year to lose weight.  I am happy to report that I’m not only keeping it this year, but I am enjoying great success.

I have gone back to counting my calories, and have used the Wii for some form of exercise for AT LEAST 5 times a week every week this year.  And the best part?  I’m feeling, and seeing, my results.  As of right now, I have lost a total of 12 pounds since January 1st, and now that I have added diet into my daily routine with Exercise, I should start to see that number increase.  What a difference 4% weight loss makes too.  I’m already feeling less “bogged down”, and I seem to be getting better sleep.

I’ll stop by again with more updates when I have them!

So, another year has quickly passed by, and I failed to complete on my resolutions of 2010.

We are actually a month into 2011, and I am happy to say that so far, I have kept my resolution. I have resolved to lose 20 pounds per quarter through the year. So far, in a month, I have lost 9 pounds. Go me!

I am doing this via a series of Wii fitness games, dieting, and other lifestyle changes. I’ll keep you posted.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

My blog is located there.

Been a while since my last post

Posted: October 20, 2010 in Project: Home

Well hello there.  Yes, it’s again been a while since my last post.  I’ve been playing with WordPress for another project I am doing (turning wordpress into more of a CMS rather than a blog, fun!) and it got me thinking that I hadn’t updated this thing in a while.

The move to my new place is complete, and I absolutely love it.  A few minutes from work means that I get at least an extra hour every day vs my last situation, which I am using to get out and be more active (albiet slightly, but its better than nothing!).

I’ve been spending a lot of time working on the whole radio thing in my time off, and that is going along pretty well (although we still haven’t figured out how to make it profitable yet).

I’ll try to get in here to update this thing more often, but I’ve said that in the past to no avail, so I better not even make the promise.

The End of an Era

Posted: July 12, 2010 in Project: Home

Slightly less than two years after moving in to my first apartment, I find myself packing it all up and moving yet again.  I’m happy to be moving closer to work and upgrading apartments, but at the same time, I’d be lying if I didn’t also say that I’m a tad bit sad as well, for a few reasons.

Part of this era, as I look back, ended 7 months ago.  You see, a big part of the reason (although not the only reason) I chose to live here was that I had two of my best friends living just 4 doors down the hall.  That was, of course, until they bought a house last December.  While it’s not that far away (10 minutes now, 20 minutes when I move) it does seem to have changed things a bit.  Probably not entirely because of moving, but they have been busy planning a wedding, getting in shape, and developing new friendships.  Still, this building will always have many memories as me just strolling down the hall to have a few drinks while playing WoW, or having Rose stop down when I’m sick with a care package to help me feel better.  It was probably the best part of the last two years of my life.  (And if the subjects of this post are reading it now, I propose a movie night very soon, its been far too long!).  While I’ll be a tad bit further away than I used to be, I want to make more of an effort to hang out with you guys when I move.  And as a bonus, I’ll be less than a mile from Boston Market again!  But, I’m more than happy to drive down to see you guys too!

Another part of what I’ll miss about living here is the view, the concrete walls, and the location.  Burnsville was always a city that I grew up with, being where us Prior Lakers went to shop, and worship (my old church used to be two blocks from here before they also moved to Savage).  It was something I was familular with, so it didn’t take that much time to get acclimated when I moved here full time.  It’s another stage to growing up I guess, but I am looking forward to it!

But, as I look back at the things that were great about living here, I also look forward to all the things that are great about living up there.  The shorter communtes, my own washer, being literally 2 miles from EVERYTHING, and having the change of scenery will be nice.  The great thing about renting is, if I get up there and I’m miserable, I can always move back down here in a year.

Two of my best friends over the past 4 years have made their love of each other official by getting married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony yesterday.  As long as I’ve known Rose and Mike, I’ve known that they just “belong” together.  Congratulations guys!  I look forward to being a part of your lives for years to come (now its time for me to find my ideal match!)
