Dangle the Carrot, Do Some Push-Ups, and Quit a Job

First off, if you haven't already seen it on BT or on his blog, Jeff is having a give-away on his blog ( By posting a comment, following him on Blogger and/or Twitter, or linking his site on your blog, you can earn up to 4 entries to win a box of Chocolate #9 Agave Energy Gels! I love my gels, and have never tried this line, so of course I wanted to get a few entries into the give-away. Also, I would like to thank Jeff for having this give-away, as it gave me just the push that I needed to get back on here and type up a post :)

Since my last post, I went to a spin class, lost and gained back a few pounds, and got a teaching contract! I started teaching last Tuesday, and have a contract until June. After that, there are no guarantees, but at least I have my foot in the door now. AND, with a contract, I can finally get ready to stop working 2 full-time jobs! For the last few years, I have been studying/teaching all day and working all night, leaving very little time at home with the family. This morning, my 3 year old son asked me, "Daddy, do you have to work 2 jobs again today?" I've definitely had enough. Working both jobs was necessary to pay the bills while I was in school, but it's time to be with my wife and kids again. I plan on toughing it out for the rest of the month, until my teaching cheques are coming in, then I'll make my move. After the schedule I've had for the last few years, working "only" 40-50 hours/week will feel like a vacation! :)

Tonight, I will finish the 6-week 100 push-up program. All that will remain is my final test, of which I will be posting a video on here. I also have another video I want to put on here... the other night, my wife and I decided to have a little sing-along at 2am. Stay tuned.
