Journal Update: Not too much going on

This was kind of a laid back weekend really. I mostly did housework on Saturday and drove my daughter around on some errands. It was very productive and not stressful in any way. I did get to go see Super 8 again with my friends on Saturday and it was once again great. Picked up on some more stuff during the second viewing.

In the News: Yo-Yo dieting possibly not as bad as staying fat…

Just read the following article that is going to break this down much better than I will, however in summation… If there are three groups of mice: high fat group, low fat group, yo-yo diet group, the yo-yo dieters live approximatly 35% longer than the high fat group.

Journal Update: The last two days

Well in some good news it looks like I will be blogging for a new parenting website soon. So if anyone has suggestions for a stay at home dad who blogs please let me know. I will be in a panic for a while looking for stories I bet. It is very exciting to expand the “brand” that is me into a new area. As I mentioned in the last post I am taking development classes and it feels like pulling myself in several directions all at once now. I will tell you the title of the online magazine/blog once it posts. I am pretty excited about it.

Journal Update: There and back again, Los Angeles style.

Where to begin with my long weekend excursion with my wife and friends. I guess is to start by explaining the reason we went. My friend Zack made a movie Scalene, that was premiering at the Dances with Films festival out in West Hollywood. My wife and I are involved with the movie (she even has a bit part in it) and Zack is a good friend of ours so that was that. Great excuse to go out of town without the kids to an exciting place!

Journal Update: Not perfect, but I will take it!

I often think of this quote when I try to bring balance into my life, “The perfect is the enemy of good.” It is a quote by Voltaire and it reminds me to not give up if I am not perfect. I am a very all or nothing kind of person and a long term life solution to health is not an all or nothing adventure. It takes time, patience and moderation in food, exercise and just about everything else.
