From the Desk of John Rourke – January 8th, 2018


After quite a 2017 in politics, it is going to be interesting to see what 2018 brings.

So far I’m down 10 pounds in the last couple weeks. Calories have been cut way back. Eating mostly Paleo which equates to lower carbs. Workouts have gone well and intensity is increasing slowly.  Sundays I meal prep for the week to keep the diet on the right track. At 48 years old very pleased with how my body has responded thus far.

Spent much of yesterday going over my budget for the next 6 months. Financial improvement is one of my goals for 2018 leaning towards debt reduction and saving.

Cheap Prep: Mousetraps are very inexpensive and useful. Grab a few packs and put them back this week.
