Old Cheese Doesn’t Make an Omelet BadJanuary 31st, 2018  5:49 am

It is with grace, tranquility, and ease that I awake this morning with renewed, unfettered enthusiasm for the day ahead. Recently I’ve gotten a little off track with my diet, being afflicted by a minor stomach bug. Let’s just say during the prior two snow days (1 and 2) I had eaten far too many […]

The Lance Armstrong Lie, Chris Froome’s Asthma, and Another Snow Day!January 30th, 2018  7:20 pm

So today was another snow day and as such I took care of things that needed to get done but also was able to watch, “The Lance Armstrong Lie,” along with a podcast about Chris Froome which was good as I was under the weather again today. I have a stomach bug or something, but […]

A Day Off Of School Not Due To SnowJanuary 29th, 2018  7:11 pm

Last night before falling asleep I got the notification we would not being having school today and it came quite unexpectedly. Apparently there was a decent size fire in Willimantic that was hurting air quality, making school impossible for the day. As such, I still went about my daily activities, like working on some grading […]

Sunshine , Rainbows, and Unicorns – Life is Good!January 28th, 2018  3:27 pm

You may read the title of this blog post and say to yourself, “Tim, unicorns don’t exist.” Of course, I realize this, but it’s the spirit of the unicorn, a magical animal of tremendous grace, tranquility, and ease, along with unfettered enthusiasm for positivity that I write this blog. Think about it, when have you […]

An Extra Hour of Sleep Means Life is Good!January 27th, 2018  9:48 am

Yesterday morning I woke up with grace, tranquility, and ease, of course, but an hour late. I looked at my phone and it said 5:56 a.m. Seeing as I normally leave for school at 6:10 a.m. or so I was like, “uh oh.” As I rushed to get out the door I did notice something […]

REVV Coffee and Water in The Morning, Another Weight Loss StrategyJanuary 25th, 2018  5:56 am

As part of my continuing blog I’d like to tackle weight loss again (I was going to do that on, but maybe I’ll do something else with that). I’ve changed strategies the past day based on a recommendation from BJT. BJT was talking about how he drinks sugar free energy drinks in the morning. […]

An Omelet to Start Anew and Weight Loss as an EducatorJanuary 24th, 2018  5:54 am

These past few days I’ve been very busy with grading at the end of Semester 1. People who have never worked in the educational system may think, “oh, school ends at 2:35 p.m., therefore the job ends at 2:35 p.m.” Anyone who has ever worked in education, of course, knows this couldn’t be further from […]

Leaning Out! 6lbs in Three Weeks!January 23rd, 2018  7:01 pm

As part of our teacher’s “Biggest Loser,” competition I have been trying diligently to lose weight. I have to say, knowing that you will be checked on a certain date (we weigh in at the nurse’s office) really keeps you sticking to a diet. That being said, I was worried that at this weigh in […]

Romain Bardet and Motivating Myself to RideJanuary 23rd, 2018  5:53 am

As you may have surmised from my recent posts I am trying to motivate myself to get back riding again this week after my cold has abated somewhat. It’s been a rough battle against this cold but I did get on the trainer last night and began to pedal with grace, tranquility, and ease, along […]

Riding to Third on a Broken Ankle #DeterminationJanuary 22nd, 2018  7:55 pm

2007 was a defining year for me as a cyclist. I had started the year ranked #1 in the United States in the Master’s 30-34 Road Race Category. I felt embarrassed at the time telling friends, “yeah, I’m ranked #1 in the U.S. in my age group, (in that particular category – old man category)” […]
