Chuck the Chunk: On the Road to Dad 2.0 Summit 2014

I’m on my daily (or-close-to-daily) challenge, on-my-road to winning the Chuck the Chunk: On the Road to Dad 2.0 Summit 2014 weight-loss challenge.1003042_10152116524759616_1764882450_n1

Follow me, as I  laugh at myself, stumble, and bumble my way through, on my personal journey of weight-loss fun.

Chicken Lasagna

Yes, for a lot of people, this is against everything they stand fo– a hate crime against all traditional lasagnas from the world over.

Milk can’t fly

Well, another week has gone by. This is what I’ve learned or what I think I learned: “Milk  can’t fly.” My son has been experimenting with his milk for some time now. Sadly, each experiment ends the same way–with the cup-and-milk going up and cup-and-milk going down. It’s easy to think: he is just making a mess; and, if he is …

Making changes

Changes for my son and for us, as adults, can be so hard at times. We have, in most cases, created so many self-defending bad habits that it can seem impossible for change to happen.

Dance party

My son, who has his father’s awesome booty-shaking moves, is now dancing to all any song he hears, no matter where he is… We went to the park yesterday. I was pushing him on the swings, and we were finally just about ready to head home… Of course, he wanted to go down the slide before we went home. He …

I was watching Louisville vs Wichita State, wanting the Shockers to beat Louisville–not because I dislike Louisville or like Witchita State. I just love the underdog story. I mean… who doesn’t love a good David-against-Goliath story? I’m not sure if you’re a college basketball fan or not, but the game was a lot of fun to watch, even though I wish the outcome was different. …

Knowing what he wants

My son is starting to get more vocal when it comes to what he wants to eat. The problem, of course, is to get him to eat more then just what he likes. I believe he would eat chicken nuggets for every meal in a day (plus snacks) if we would allow it. Therein lies the problem. How do we …
