Remember #Project44

Recall at the beginning of the year I was gung-ho about #Project44. The mission to make a better-Don before my 44th birthday in July. Oops. Sorta fell by the wayside, but I’d like to say it’s back on the agenda and I have 71-days… Continue Reading “Remember #Project44”


I’ve lost some weight. I’ve exercised every day (not quite 44-minutes, but I’m getting there). I’ve moved a whole belt loop. My skin looks good. The 44th day of 2017 will be Monday, February 13th and I’ll make a “First-44 Days” analysis (kinda like… Continue Reading “#Project44”

It’s not all feel-good and “yay me” on the #Project44 experiment. This morning, I wanted to see how many pull-ups I could do. Here’s a multiple choice quiz… Tomorrow I’ll reveal the answer and I’ll probably tell you about how I can’t raise my… Continue Reading “#Project44 #Pullups2 #Sadness”

Project 47, Part 1: Push-Ups, Sit-Ups, Burpees

For my 47th birthday, I’m starting a “thing.” Regular readers know I’m big on people having “things.” Some people do their “thing” accidentally, but some others invent them. Some of my things include making coffee with Aeropress, my lawn, and Twitter. Sorry (not sorry).… Continue Reading “Project 47, Part 1: Push-Ups, Sit-Ups, Burpees”

Mid-Year Resolutions (and Mid-Life Resolutions) Two things that have always been my things are my Mid-Year Resolutions and my Projects. Two years ago I kicked off Project44 and it’s been a good guide. Time for an update. My birthday, luckily, is July 11th, right… Continue Reading “Project 46”

Building 2017 Around Magic #44

My Dad was born in 1944. I was born on 7/11/73 and if you write that as (7-11) and (7-3) you get -4 and 4 and, well, that’s two 4s in a row. I want to weigh 144 pounds by the end of the… Continue Reading “Building 2017 Around Magic #44”

Magic Number 44 in 2017

Things I’m Doing: 44 Days of Ties (Day 7)

You’ve heard of “mental floss” …well, consider this (and my “44 Days of Ties” project) “writing floss.” Or, call it the “writer plunger” or “blog Draino” or whatever term you’d use to describe a task that’s just a warm-up for other stuff you have… Continue Reading “Things I’m Doing: 44 Days of Ties (Day 7)”

Things I’m Doing: 44 Days of Ties (Day 5)

“44 Days of Ties” rolls on with another shirt-tie combo from Express. I’m thinking I should reach out to them and see if they’ll sponsor my “44 Days of Ties” project. Today’s tie is burgundy with diagonal stripes which, if you look closely, are… Continue Reading “Things I’m Doing: 44 Days of Ties (Day 5)”
