This is for the health nuts out there. Something that I’m experiencing first hand.

If you eat healthy, train, and aim to live a healthy life when you’re injured your body will make repairs quickly.

Today is the second day since the hamstring injury, but I can already flex my hamstring, walk, and have near full rotation of it.

That comes with a price though. My body knows it’s injured, no different compared to being sick. Because of this I’ve been at a level of exhaustion both days, and sleeping has been insane…

Here’s some hard truth for you (really for us)…

Since the demolition of the Kansas City Shock, and probably a little before that, Darco and I have been attempting to get finances back on track within our household. I want to let you know that if there is something that I struggle with greatly it is easily money management. When I don’t have any, that’s when I see everything that I could ever want to purchase. I know that I’m not the only one in this position, but I’m just showing you what goes on in my head. Continue reading

Well…

Student debt is always a ‘reality’ of my life, and that’s something that I’ve aimed to just accept instead of just complain.

There’s some silver linings to it. Recently Darco and I have discovered an opportunity for a certain state government to remove $15,000 of debt if we were to move to a specific location inside that state [more later].

We’ve also learned as of yesterday that Starbucks is will to pay the tuition of their employees that work over 20 hours a week. This would qualify Darco.

Just some interesting tidbits as of late.

I’m not huge on self shots at the gym. However, lately I’ve been logging a lot of time in there, and after a week of frustrations, testing, and ending some injury recovery work…
I finally saw some startling results.
I just want it to be known that I’ve never shown this much muscle mass in my life.

Smile! The upper body really surprised me.

Never thought I'd have "softballs" on my calves. Just mind blowing.

I suppose this should be over at God’s Not Fat, but I think it’s worth putting on this page:

As the weeks draw to a close for “XO”, I’ve started to do some mental and physical preparation for the next chapter. These past few days provided me with a good example of where the next chapter will go.

I have a tragic announcement; something that MC will gleefully enjoy. I just broke the news to Darco a few minutes ago.

Ladies and gentlemen…

I can no longer fit into large t-shirts. They are too small.
Too small in the back and the shoulders.

Let that sink in for a moment and you’ll understand why this definitely a “getyourpraiseon” moment.

Try to understand my taste in music…

I know; it isn’t easy.

Check this out:
I’m the only one in the office tomorrow. Everyone else is quite literally out of town. So that’s 10,000 square feet, a lake, and myself for the entire day.
On top of that, Darco and I get to rock out at Bible study again tomorrow evening. Something that we’re both pretty pumped about.
Finally, by doing my favorite thing in the world [retweeting random things] I just nailed two free tickets to the band that is embedded above for tomorrow night in town at 9:00 PM!

Boom! Bam! Thank you ma’am!

That’s a day that hasn’t even started worthy of getting some praise action on!
