50 pounds lost

50 pounds lost

1 year, 4 months, and 4 days ago on October 2nd, 2011 I was 50 pounds heavier. Thanks to everyone for their support and belief in me that I could do it! (And to my critics, thanks for encouraging me even more – telling me I can’t do something will make me prove you wrong) PS -I am eating 2-3x… Read more →

Fall grades are in...

Fall grades are in…

 SO CLOSE!!! I missed the Deans List (3.7) by .025 GPA. Ended up with a 3.675 as you can see. 3 A’s and 1 B. I have some mixed emotions going through my head right now. I’m a bit disappointed. I thought the Microeconomics was a sure A. I put in the most effort out of all in that class… Read more →

First semester back…complete!

Well, I’m all done with my first semester back and this officially makes me a sophomore. Yay, only 2.5-3 years to go. I did quite well my first go round. I think I made all A’s on all 4 classes. Results won’t be back until later next week or so, but that’s what I am expecting. If not, my teachers are… Read more →

Reflecting over the past year

This will be a brief post as I need to get back to studying. It’s the holiday season and that always gets me to thinking about all sorts of different things. I was actually out riding my bike when the thought hit me to reflect over the last year and try and write down some of my thoughts. I feel… Read more →

Added two new pages…

Just a real quick post before I head off to work here. I added the weight loss and bucket list pages. They are works in progress, but they should serve as place holders for now. Leave a comment and let me know what you want me to add in the content of those pages!

Why I voted for Gary Johnson…

This won’t be a political slamming post…I hope. Most people believe there to be a two party choice. No other. I however disagree with this. I followed my heart today and voted with what I thought would be the best for this country. I voted for Gary Johnson. Do I think he has a prayer in hell of wining? No… Read more →

Let the Lord be Magnified!

Psalm 35:27 – Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. Think about that verse for a moment. I’ll word it a slightly different way. Let them say continuously, “Let the Lord be magnified, who has great pleasure in… Read more →

Bought a new bike

Bought a new bike

Bought a Cannondale F7 used from a guy on Craig’s List. Not the perfect color, not new, but it was cheap and rides great. Took it mudding behind ETSU the day I got it. It turns out I’m not much good at mountain biking, but it sure is fun! Can’t wait to recover from yesterday’s road ride and run afterwords… Read more →

Climbing for a cause results

I participated in my first organized ride yesterday, Climbing for a Cause. It was a ride to support diabetes research. There were options to ride various lengths. 25, 50, 75, and 100 miles were the different choices. I had pre-registered to do the 50 online. When I got to the ride, I figured I had the whole day to do… Read more →
