How I Lost 150 Pounds in 365 Days? – So What Are You Eating?

Posted on October 05, 2014 by Rolly Perreaux - 267 views

You made the commitment, you’re about to invest a lot of time and money to correcting your health problems.

How do I keep track of all this information?

I personally use the MyFitnessPal app for my smartphone and also their website at http://www.myfitnesspal.com to keep track of all the calories that I have eaten every day. What I especially love about this app is the very very large online food database they have. It quite literally has almost every food you can think is listed in their database. But I’m getting ahead of myself.

How I Lost 150 Pounds in 365 Days? – Diet is a 4 Letter Word

Posted on October 05, 2014 by Rolly Perreaux - 318 views

So how many of you have been on a diet in one form or another? How did you make out? Did you lose the weight but after some time you gained it all back (and then some)?

Here’s a list of all the major mainstream diets I found on WebMD:
http://www.webmd.com/diet/evaluate-latest-diets

There are over 100 diets on this list and some of the titles of these diets are just plain ridiculous, such as: Cookie Diet, 3 Day Diet, 3-Hour Diet and High School Reunion Diet just to name a few. But the reality is that diets don’t work in the long run, because in their nature they are short term solutions. What we’re trying to achieve is Healthy for Life and that’s a long term solution.

So one of the first things we need to do is find out what your ideal weight should be. I used Ideal Weight Calculator (http://www.calculator.net/ideal-weight-calculator.html) because it calculates the values from different formulas.

New Business Development Proposal

Posted on August 27, 2014 by Rolly Perreaux - 237 views

Attention Microsoft Gold Partners

 

I thought I would try something different and appeal directly to Microsoft Gold Partners and give a presentation on Adding Microsoft Project Portfolio Management Services (PPM) to their consulting company’s services.

I’d present my insight on PPM and report on my research findings, give some recent market analysis and show the cross-market sales opportunities with current Microsoft Partner competencies.

But in the end, I’m essentially trying to make a business case to add Project Portfolio Management services because I’m looking to be hired for a leadership position in a consulting firm. And what better way to do this by educating the merits of PPM and include a brief sales pitch ;-)

I hope you enjoy it!


What happened to the Import Wizard?

Posted on April 25, 2014 by Rolly Perreaux - 750 views

Funny thing that happened to me while doing some security testing on Project Server 2013. I was attempting to import some local resources from an .MPP file using the Import Resources to Enterprise wizard like I’ve done many many times before and the weirdest thing happened…

The current view would shift over (like it always does) but the Import Resources Wizard was missing.
Very Strange!!

How to Disable Facebook AutoPlay Video Feature

Posted on April 08, 2014 by Rolly Perreaux - 1,063 views

FBVideoWith the new Facebook user interface slowly being deployed, they also made a change that is a bit annoying. Whenever you scroll past a video one of your FB friends posted it would automatically play. It’s a bit scary especially when you don’t expect it and the volume on your computer is not on mute Smile

 

Here’s how you disable that “Feature”:

1. From the Facebook web page, in the top right hand corner, click on the down arrow (next to the lock icon)

2. Then click Settings.

DisableAutoPlayVideos

 

3. From the General Account Settings page, In the navigation pane (left side) click Videos.

4. In the AutoPlay Videos setting, click the down arrow and click Off.

DisableAutoPlayVideos2

 

No More AutoPlay Videos!  Smile
