Family First- Orion Gets Back on Track with HMR

Wow. Life can be a rollercoaster. I’m pretty sure the first person ever to use that analogy. It’s been a while since I’ve written anything, and no, its not because I’ve fallen off the wagon. Proud to say I’m officially half way to 100 with Sarah Bush Lincoln’s HMR Weight Management! Yeah. Really. But when things […]

DJ Kurtis Allen is Living the Dad Life with HMR

Hello, my friends! I know it’s been a little while since my last blog post, but I swear I have a good excuse. Before I get to my excuse as to my whereabouts, a little history for anyone that is just checking out my blog for the first time…In January of 2015, I had the […]

Orion’s Journey to Weight Loss with HMR

For as long as I can remember I was the fat kid. Even when I wasn’t, inside I was. I never understood that when I was a 230 pound center for the Champaign Central Maroons football team who could bench my body weight and squat over 500 pounds. I actually looked good and felt good, […]

Building Muscle and Feeling Slimmer

Well, another Bagelfest is in the books and it was certainly a SCORCHER! And that was especially tough for me given that I did the Run for the Bagel 10K run. This was my second year doing it and, yeah, the heat and humidity made it rough. As a matter of fact, the humidity was […]

Prior to getting on the HMR diet and committing myself to a more healthy lifestyle that included daily workouts, I never had a problem just sequestering myself inside in […]


Holiday Strategies for Staying on Track

So, it’s 4th of July weekend. So what’s it going to be? Hamburgers and hot dogs? Brats? Potato salad? Tons of cupcakes with red, white, and blue frosting? As with most holidays, Independence Day comes with a bunch of atypical foods associated with it. And most of the time, holiday-specific foods tend to be the […]


Letting Your Favorite Foods Go . . . Every Day Gets Easier

Hey, everyone! What do you think of my new medal display? I got it for my birthday a couple weeks back. Now I just need to get some more medals to properly fill it up. Guess I better sign up for more races! This week I have been thinking about eating habits and how they […]

Never Count Yourself Out; Life Is A Journey

Hello readers! Well, racing season is upon us once again. And thanks to the HMR program, this is my second year being able to take part in a variety of 5Ks and 10Ks. Earlier this year, I did my first 15K, my most intense run to date. That was back in February. So far this […]


Happy Birthday to Me

Hello all, long time no see! It’s been a while since I checked in, ever since I exited Phase One of the HMR program and entered the maintenance phase, or Phase Two. Phase Two focuses on maintaining your current weight rather than the Phase One focus on weight loss. Because some would say that the […]
