These two Work-at-Home Dads (and certified Rock and Roll Gangsters) had let time and their jobs take their toll on their personal well-being. Now, nearly three-weeks into their journey, we'll find out how their efforts are paying off. This afternoon, Sunday, January 19, 2014, both men did their weigh-in... and these are the results.

THE ROCK FATHERRock Father vs. Rock Father - When we last met James Zahn and Tom George (read their kick-off stories here), the two Rock Fathers had begun a year-long journey to not only lose weight, but get fit.

On January 1st, two "Rock Fathers" began a challenge that will take them through 2014, and if all goes as planned, well beyond. This is a challenge based around not just "weight loss," but fitness... a path to overdue personal transformation and lifestyle change not just for themselves, but for their wives and daughters. Without professional trainers or guidance, this will be a year-long blog series that captures the journey of James Zahn (The Rock Father) and Tom George (FiXT Publicity) with weekly updates about their quest to get fit. There will be experimentation with trial-and-error as each man settles into the plan that works for them. With their journey now just four days-in, let's look at the starting stats...

This post is brought to you by Babycenter and CBRIt was five years ago yesterday that I found out that I would soon become a parent for the very first time. My wife and I were in the car, driving down I-94 outside of Chicago on the way to her Dad's house for Thanksgiving dinner when she turned to me and stated boldly: "You knocked me up." I distinctly remember grinning ear-to-ear, and beginning our first real conversation about our new reality: we were about to be parents. The following summer, on the exact date of our 10th wedding anniversary, Addie was born and I would effectively become "The Rock Father." The build-up to that day was filled with planning... uncertainty... and questions. I didn't know then that parent blogging was a thing, and the manuals? Well, there are none as far as I'm concerned.

Review: MicroTouch One Classic Safety Razor

This is unheard of. At no point in my 20+ year career reviewing things have I written and posted a review of a product on the very same day that I first tried it. They say there's "a first time for everything," and this is it... because the product in question is a razor, and it arrived today, and was used today. The experience is fresh in my mind, so here we are. Honestly, I just needed to shave today, and the MicroTouch One Classic Safety Razor arrived just in time. I last shaved on October 1st - I know this because I had a flight to catch the next day, and was getting prepped for it. It's not really any great mystery that I'm sorta bad when it comes to shaving. It's expensive, and just one more thing to work into my routine, and I skip it far too often. Having already found one razor that I love this year, the prospect of trying another was intriguing, and when the folks at Idea Village asked if I'd be up for going old-school, I had to accept.
