2015: The Year of the Hip
Wednesday, December 31, 2014      2 comments

2014 wasn't the best year. In fact, it pretty much sucked. I had to have a hip replacement at 44 because my bone was dying. But I'm fortunate to have decent insurance and an understanding employer to allow me to stay home and recover. I re... Read more

Just a quick blog for blog's sake. Yesterday I started a dietbet challenge so I'm getting my butt in gear as to not lose any of my hard earned moola. Yesterday I ate well and worked out. Hard. Today I woke up with a headache and felt like ... Read more
