THE ROCK FATHERRock Father vs. Rock Father - It's been 23 weeks since James Zahn and Tom George (read the kick-off story here) began a year-long journey to not only lose weight, but get fit. These two Work-at-Home Dads had let time and their jobs take their toll on their personal well-being. For each week of the journey, we've been checking-in to find out how their efforts are paying off. We needed a little re-set here these past couple of weeks, but today we're back for Sunday, June 8, 2014. Both men did their weigh-in, and these are the results...

Earlier this month, I entered a new phase of parenting when my oldest daughter, Addie, began T-ball prep. I posted a journal entry here on THE ROCK FATHER, a fitting start to a new world of exploration and growth for the little one, and a whole new experience for my wife and I as parents. Last night, T-ball prep wrapped-up, and in June, Addie will become just one of a handful of girls joining the boys for Pee-Wee Baseball. Real practices. Real games. Prepping my children for games is something that I've never done before, so I've been on the hunt for tips - tips that I could turn around and share with you. Teaming-up with my friends at Dole and Mom it Forward, I'm helping to spread the word on how to get kids to be #GameDayGreat, with healthy snacks like DOLE Fruit Squish’ems, and with Game Day advice from two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup winner and mom, Brandi Chastain and the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO).

It's hard to believe that we're five months into 2014 already, and even more hard to believe for this chronically out-of-shape writer is that we're nearly six months into The Rock Father's 2014 Fitness Challenge. It's been slow and steady, but as we approach June, I've lost nearly 25 pounds so far this year... but I'm not just losing weight - I'm getting into shape. Two months ago, I joined a gym and added a four night-a-week workout routine into the mix - and running is a part of that. But before doing anything, I sometimes have to remind myself not to skip breakfast (something I've been known to do as I wrangle the girls in the morning), and something I've enjoyed on occasion are the belVita Breakfast Biscuits. Now, belVita and Runner's World have teamed-up to offer runners of all levels advice to make the most of their morning run, and in turn have partnered with THE ROCK FATHER for a fantastic giveaway to celebrate!

As a parent, I'm always cautious as to what environmental hazards my children are exposed to, and a lot of times, there's danger lurking right here at home. Harmful chemicals can be hard to avoid, and first-time filmmaker Ed Brown explores this in his acclaimed film, UNACCEPTABLE LEVELS, which arrives in wide-release on DVD, June 10th (pre-order now). To celebrate the release, THE ROCK FATHER is teaming up with The Disinformation Company to offer a chance for two (2) lucky readers to win copies of this important film on DVD, and you can also check out Ed Brown's "Five Tips to Avoid Chemicals" below...
