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...

You may have already seen the commercials for the "classic" STRETCHKINS, the four-foot characters that kids can dance, exercise and play with. Now they're moving into licensed territory, and having already spied some pics of SCOOBY-DOO, BATMAN, SUPERMAN, HELLO KITTY and CARE BEARS versions in the pipeline, today comes the announcement that some familiar heroes will emerge in July. Just in time for the August release of the new TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES FILM, Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello will be available as Stretchkins, in addition to the classic Playful Puppy, Pretty Unicorn, and Red Dragon models.

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!

Gorton's Real Fabulous Review

As part of my 2014 Fitness Challenge, I've drastically changed my diet, in addition to all the calorie-counting and exercising that I've been chronicling each week here on THE ROCK FATHER. Fish (which I've always loved) has become a big part of that, as a source of lean protein, and the bonus goodness of DHA Omega-3. My freezer here at Rock Father HQ is loaded with a variety of seafood, much of it provided thanks to the folks at Gorton's. One item that I've been revisiting after first sampling it at an even last summer is the Roasted Garlic & Italian Herb filets from Gorton's new Artisan Recipe line.
