A few months ago I wrote about my doctor challenging me to lose weight, for the better of myself and everyone in my life. Then, a bit after that, I wrote about a day I ‘cheated’ on my diet with an amazing donut from a local pop-up shop called Deviant Donuts. I mentioned how it felt so good. Recently, it was Father’s Day weekend. My … Continue reading I Binged Off My Diet – And It HURT!
Last week I was talking about how eating healthy has changed how things taste for me. Some foods I used to run away from are now quite delicious to me – including Indian Food!

For years, I couldn’t go near an Indian Restaurant. The smell made me want to fall over. It would hit me in the nose, close my throat and kill my appetite for days.

When we had our first kid, it was time to start taking care of myself a little better. That meant that it was time to get an annual physical. Being in my 40s made it even more important. I hated doctors. They would take my blood pressure, temperature and bang my knee with a rubber hammer. Then, just as it would be seemingly over, I’d … Continue reading Getting (a) Physical – The Battle of the Bulge Begins
When we were younger, Valentine’s Dates could mean dancing the night away at a club, a fancy dinner in the city, a weekend away at a B&B. Now we’re older. A lot of us have kids.
