It is a weird season.

It is a weird season.

One that I hope to look back on and glean some profound truth from.

It just feels like chaos most of the time.

I have been learning my whole life to think, act and feel like an adult and not a child.

Now, as a parent I am supposed to jump into the mind of a 2 year old.

Freaking frustrating and... extremely amusing at times.


  1. I know you will do the best of it. You always have. I miss you my good friend.

  2. It is the community of friends and family like you that encourage me to be a good father. You have always been a role model as a father of your girls.

    Be blessed, friend. I love you.

  3. I hear you man. I think the hardest part of being a parent is that our kids are constantly changing. Just when you think you've figured out how to communicate and interact with them properly, they up and change on you! Constant learning experience. It's frustrating, and yet I wouldn't trade it for the world. One of the many ways God uses to keep us humble and clinging to Him.

    "I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength." ~Phil 4:12-13

  4. I will not trade it for anything, as well. Most days it is so much fun to be a father to a little dude learning about life. Some times it is just down right difficult.

    I will say, that I have realized a lot about myself as a person and follower of Christ. Some good things and some not so pretty things.

Perseverance is the key to success

Perseverence is the key to success. I have heard this quote before used in many contexts, but it has become a reality for me lately. During this unprecedented time of Covid-19 quarantine, I have been challenged in many ways. Challenged to be a good husband, a good father and a good employee. It has not been easy and it has been a heavy burden to carry. I have struggled to maintain the balance of all these things and I have failed more drastically then when I was able to leave the house each day to separate these responsibilities physically. It has been a learning experience for me in how to control my thoughts, speak only after thinking and generally controlling myself when I get frustrated or tired. But, it has not been all bad. I have had more time to spend with my family and that ultimately is a good thing. This season has reminded me to be more present and more involved in the day by day routine of our household. Learning to share the responsibility of looking after our child

Back on the wagon

 It has been several months since I posted last, but I wanted to provide an update on my weight loss status. I relaxed my efforts over the holidays a bit, but I am happy to say that I only gained about 5 lbs. I am very happy with this. I used this time as a way to see if I could maintain my weight for an extended amount of time. I feel successful in this and I am now ready to start the last stage of my weight loss journey. Currently, I am at 220.8 pounds and pushing to create calorie deficits each day. This will be the hardest stretch for me as I know I am beginning to plateau in my ability to just control my intake. I am looking to add a light workout program that will create additional calorie loss and hopes that it will get me to my goal of 185 lbs by May. I am excited and motivated to get this goal met. Onto a lighter me!

New Year and New Routines

 I am generally not a New Years resolution type of person. If I am being honest with myself, I am too lazy and too fickle to stick to any regiment. I feel it is silly to set expectations for myself that I know I will just forget about and give up on. I don't know if that makes me a pessimist or and optimist? I feel indifferent about it, I believe. The new year is at the end of a long holiday season and generally realize my good habits slack during the holidays, especially in regards to eating and health. I know enough about myself to admit that. So, I guess I know I need to respond to this waning of dietary discipline and refocus my efforts on getting myself back into a healthy state of nutrition and body awareness. I just want to feel better and be less self-conscious about my body. It really is taxing and robs a ton of joy from my life.  So, I am once again "working it", by counting calories in my phone app and making sure to cut out as much sugar from my diet. I have b
