Who’s Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf – Single Dad, Parents Article

If you have been following me for any stretch of time at all, you would know I’ve been delaying something. Don’t get me wrong. I’m excited to start a new series based upon a commentary I put up on Quora. And if you know me, you know I love to talk about the movies. I have decided opinions about all of those classic films. And sometimes I feel like I need to vent, a la the post about being Alone…

Intermittent Fasting Week Thirteen: Woolly Mammoth Blues – Single Dad, Parents Article

Another week, another dollar.  Or maybe another dollar.  With all the craziness going on out there, it’s never certain what’s going to happen around the corner.  Which is why it’s nice to know that I have been able to tuck some money aside in case of a rainy day.  Of course, I have the money set aside for my daughter and me to make a trip to Walt Disney World.  And I suppose I can go back to planning such…

A Call To Arms | – Single Dad, Parents Article

“When in the course of human events . . . “  Oh wait.  I think I was in another frame of mind.  Let me start over again.  “I see a whole army of my countrymen here in defiance of tyranny. You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are.”  Um…. nope.   Still not there. “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.…

Intermittent Fasting Week Eleven: A Time Of Reflection – Single Dad, Parents Article

And the weeks roll on.  On and on.  On and on.  Ok, maybe they do seem to drag in the days of day land.  But this past week has honestly been exceptional.  It’s been such a crazy time out here with everything COVID-19 related, I felt like I needed a mental break from everything.  It means I stepped aside from writing, working, or anything particularly productive.  I think I would have called it a mental health break.  As much as…

The Year Of Living Dangerously – Single Dad, Parents Article

Welcome back to another in the long list of crazy topics we have been covering over the past month and a half.  Ok, maybe not quite so crazy.  It just feels crazy when every day feels like every other day out here.  There’s no difference from one day to the next.  And every day I stare out into the skies and watch the clouds roll by.  Not because I want to.  Just because I don’t have any other choice.  So…

Intermittent Fasting Week Eight: Finding A New Normal – Single Dad, Parents Article

Welcome back to another week of my crazy diet journey, where I bounce up and down and drive myself absolutely crazy.  And then I think about checking myself into a loony bin until I realize it might violate social distancing guidelines.  Ok, maybe not really.  But it has been quite the past couple of weeks searching to desperately find a new normal.  And I think I found it.  Maybe.  So without further ado, we hit Intermittent Fasting Week Eight: A…

Intermittent Fasting Week Four: Coronapocalypse Now – Single Dad, Parents Article

Hi!  And welcome back to week four of our ongoing saga.  Intermittent Fasting: Caronapocalypse Now.  Ok, maybe my fasting didn’t start the end of the world.  Or maybe it did.  Maybe I have that much power and I’ve never used it before.  Now if only I’d thought to buy up all the toilet paper first, I’d be a millionaire.  Ah well.  Maybe next time.  Aside from the Coronapocalypse, I have been back at the fasting again this week.  What has…

Weight Loss Or Bust, Intermittent Fasting: Week Three | – Single Dad, Parents Article

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” “Believe you can and you’re halfway there.”  “No matter what you’re going through, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.” “Life is like riding a bicycle.  To keep your balance you must keep moving.”  Theoretically, I could come up with a million quotes for inspiration. Or maybe just things to upset me because they seem so trite once they leave a person’s mouth.  Because no one feels exactly what you feel. …

Intermittent Fasting Week 2 – The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly – Single Dad, Parents Article

Welcome back to our Monday series of dieting motivation otherwise called, David starves himself.  Maybe.  Stay tuned next week when I look like a skeleton and sound like a toddler begging for his parents to buy him a toy anytime food comes around.  Whimpering and screaming out until I get my way.  Only I keep denying myself.  In other words, I’m a masochist.  Aside from this form of masochism, you realize I am back for week two of my weekly…

Midlife Singlemum: Slimming Sunday – IF Only Revisited – Single Mum, Parents Article

Two years ago I wrote this post. I’d lost 10 lbs with intermittent fasting for one month and I laid out my plans for the following month. The following month’s plans never happened. I managed to keep some of the benefits of IF because even a short period of fasting has longer term benefits, but I lost the momentum. So last week I was actually in almost the exact same position I’d been in two years ago. If you follow…
