The beginning of a fun summer | DJ | 6 Years Ago


This past weekend marked the beginning of a fun filled summer for us - the first in several years. We went to Atlanta for a Reds vs. Braves baseball game, and while there went to the World of Coca-Cola, Georgia Aquarium, and stayed at a Hilton that was pretty swanky.

We have several more events on tap: in 3 weeks we are going to Charlotte to an amusement park that is holding a big concert, then I am going to Traverse City for a few days, then we are going on a weekend retreat in the

Goals | Kelley | 6 Years Ago


DJ and I are so close to our weight goals. It is great that we have been able to share in this journey. I have such a wonderful husband. I am so proud of his accomplishments. I cannot thank him enough for his companionship and love. I love you DJ!
Challenge: DJ offered motivation to reach my goal. I must weight in 3 weeks in a row under my goal weight and I "win" an iPad. I am super motivated! Thanks DJ!

Road to excellent health step 1 complete | DJ | 6 Years Ago


I took my bi-annual fitness test yesterday and scored a 90.2, my highest ever. 90+ is in the excellent category. One year ago I scored a 76.5 - quite a huge difference! I finished the 1.5 mile run in 12 minutes - which was one of my ultimate fitness goals. I have also lost around 10 pounds, with only 10 more to meet that ultimate goal.

In non-fitness related news, I got a new phone yesterday, a Droid Thunderbolt, and it is pretty sweet. Kelley is working a ton, it is her busy seas

Yeah, we're nuts! | DJ | 7 Years Ago


In case you didn't know, Kelley and I get up between 4:15 and 4:45 every weekday morning and start working out by 5:15. On the weekends we get up later - maybe as late as 6:30, and we run 3-5 miles each day (weather allowing). We ran our first 10k a few weeks ago, and we'll run our second in 2 1/2 weeks. We are in the best shape that we have been in many years and it feels great! Life might be super busy and there never feels like there is enough time in the day, but working out is worth it and

So Much Going On! | DJ | 7 Years Ago


Kelley went home for a visit for her birthday this weekend and went to the regular season Ohio State basketball finale and watched them crush Wisconsin. She had a great time, but I am very glad she will be in home in a couple hours.

I take my promotion test for Master Sergeant tomorrow morning - good luck to me! I also just bought a car a week ago - a 2011 Chevy Malibu - it is super nice.

Kelley are both doing great on fitness and health, and this Saturday we are both r

DJ Returns Home | Kelley | 7 Years Ago


DJ received a distinguished graduate honor at NCOA. He is leaving Tennessee today to return home to Augusta. He is certainly ready to spend time with his wife. We are curious about what the rest of 2011 will turn out, but we plan on taking it one day at a time. We do not know the future, but we know the one who does and that is all we need to know.

My NCOA Experience - Part 1 | DJ | 7 Years Ago


I left for the Non-Commissioned Officer Academy (NCOA) on the morning of Monday, January 3rd. The Academy is co-located with the Knoxville airport in Alcoa, Tennessee, about 10 minutes south of Knoxville. I left home around 9:30am and heading north through rural South Carolina. I immediately felt like I had gone through a time machine into the 80s. For over 2 hours I saw very little civilization, and most gas stations were one pump affairs with the old spinning analog number dial. I finally foun

Halfway there... almost | DJ | 7 Years Ago


Tomorrow mark 3 weeks until I graduate from the NCO Academy. This weekend mark the halfway point, and to celebrate I am coming home for the weekend. 11 hours of round trip driving is a small price to pay to see my awesome wife for a couple days. I very much look forward to the break from this place. It is stressful at times, and generally unfun as all military training environments tend to be.

2011 - Starts out with Separation | Kelley | 7 Years Ago


DJ will be leaving me on January 3rd for NCO Academy in Knoxville, Tennessee. He will be there for a total of 6 weeks. Thankfully, he will be able to come back and visit. I will be responsible for our 4 furry babies which can sometimes be a challenge. It is the cooking and cleaning that is even worse. DJ spoils me and I LOVE it that way. My employer will keep me busy in January. I am moving to a new off-site warehouse and there are many questions how this will change my job. I am so happy I love

The Game is tomorrow | DJ | 7 Years Ago


The annual Michigan vs. Ohio State match up happens again tomorrow. Once again, Michigan is given very little chance to win. Michigan can make its season tomorrow, or, regardless of the bowl result, have a slightly disappointing one. I just hope our offense has the ball with a chance to win late.
Kelley and I have been doing awesome in our fitness routine lately - I am nearly in the best shape of my life, or at least since I was 16. We have been running outside in 60+ degree weather
