Note: There won’t be many updates until next month but I wanted to go ahead and get things moved around so I could share my updated #100DaysOfFitness post and updates. I know some pages (especially recipes) aren’t all showing up correctly just yet, so I appreciate your patience as I get those fixed. August is extremely busy with my wife’s birthday, daughter’s birthday, our wedding anniversary, and a first responder course I’m taking for our volunteer fire department. To the right is a screenshot of the app I use to track my time and this is what I’ve been up to the past month.

Moving Things Around

Aloha and welcome to I’ve changed things around quite a bit and have gone back and forth for a while on what to do and I finally think I found something that works. Before I had planned to make this more of a landing page and have my development and personal site split out, totalling three sites. I really don’t want that much to do. So I’ve narrowed it down to two, one for my personal site and another for my development. The development-related content that was here has been moved to I’m currently in a first responder course for our volunteer fire department and that is taking up most of my free time right now. Once the course is over this month I’ll have some more time to get things adjusted a little more. For now, please be patient. I’m going to split my stuff between development and more of a personal blog.

I’m a developer. My development is pretty much on hold until the middle of August. I’m currently taking an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) class for our volunteer fire department. This class uses up most of my free time outside of my day job. My main focus right now is JavaScript and learning the way Gutenberg works. What You’ll See:
  • Mug Monday:
    • Purpose: A WordPress plugin that uses a Gutenberg template to allow me to easily post a new coffee mug every week.
  • Learning JavaScript:
    • Current Focus:Learning the Basics

Geoffrey Shilling

I’m a dad, a runner that’s getting more into general fitness, and I love to cook. What You’ll See [for Now – More to come later]:
  • Fitness: The ultimate goal is to be a parent that can keep up with my kids and teach them healthy habits at a young age. I love running and have committed to MapMyRun’s You VS the Year 2018 Challenge to run 1018KM in 2018. We also have a physical readiness test in the Navy Reserve twice a year. My goal is to continually improve my score until I’m at the maximum amount for my age group. Update: I’ve started P90X3 on July 24.
  • Recipes: I want to start finding easy, healthy recipes and sharing them. With a busy schedule, I’m probably going to focus on crockpot and freezer meals.
