After the seriousness of my last few posts, and remembering the time and effort that went into crafting them, I need to post something simpler, and sillier. Richard Simmons action figure to the rescue!
I pre-ordered this action figure in the summer, and then completely forgot about it, until it showed up on my front porch six months later. Yup, it’s a Richard Simmons action figure. Yup, it’s official – Richard signed a licensing deal so this company could make and sell this. Read the rest of this entry »

Let’s start with the elephant in the room: How did they hold a live, in-person race during a pandemic? With a lot of changes and safety protocols. First of all, Read the rest of this entry »

I started a new chapter last week. I recommitted myself to my weight loss efforts, vowing to tackle the things that I’ve let slide. I’m now one week in, and that first week went pretty well!
My meal prep worked wonderfully. It was great to have the lunches and dinners that I prepared last Sunday all week long, and I spent a good part of today Read the rest of this entry »

That’s me straddling the Nebraska/Iowa state line. More on that later… let’s tackle this chronologically! Read the rest of this entry »

There was a professional photographer at the OutClimb Cancer Challenge that I competed in last weekend, so this post starts with his pictures!
The race involved exiting the lobby, onto the sidewalk, in order to re-enter the building to start each climb, and the photographer was perched Read the rest of this entry »

I’m back from a week in Michigan for Christmas, and spent lots of great quality time with family. I was determined to stay focused on my health and fitness all week, and made lots of wonderful choices, and some not-so-wonderful ones, too. I’ll get into all of that, but first… SANTA!
That’s Lynn on the right. Our families have been Read the rest of this entry »

What am I eating?
Yes, it’s a cucumber, and yes, I’m eating it whole, like an apple. Gotta eat smart while on the road!
I went on my longest road trip in over a decade last week, to go to Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve wore a tuxedo twice in the past six weeks – a new record, considering I’ve worn a tux no more than five times in my entire life. This one had a velvet jacket!
I was a groomsman at my friend Sean’s wedding over the weekend, and those are Read the rest of this entry »

If you wanted to see some hail in May, you should’ve been in Colorado last weekend. Last Saturday evening, during a brief but violent storm, it hailed pebbles of ice.
I’ve lived in Los Angeles for nearly 16 years, where Read the rest of this entry »
