Weekly Progress Report: March 19-25, 2017

I didn’t get much done this week.  My son was sick most of the week and finally started feeling better as we headed into the weekend.  At the same time he was starting to feel better, my daughter was getting sick.  She didn’t leave my side much this weekend, which takes priority over all other things on this list.  We had a relaxing weekend of binge-watching kid movies so they could rest up.

LEARNING.  I’m continuing to make progress on the Become a PHP Developer learning path on Lynda.com. I finished the JavaScript Essential Training course and am 22% done with the Introducing PHP course.  According to Lynda.com:  58 hours of video tutorials remaining in this path.

LISTENING [Audible]. Amaze Every Customer Every Time by Shep Hyken.

DEVELOPMENT. Project: “The Store.”  Project Scope:  This is a website re-design for a brick-and-mortar store I’m doing for a family member.

Weekly Progress:  I learned how to bulk-edit/resize photos using Photoshop Elements and have all the images sized and ready to be renamed from their standard “image-1” to more meaningful names.


  • Tuesday:  We had training on forcible entry.  One of our officers made a wood frame that lets each of us practice different techniques.

PHYSICAL TRAINING.  Well, I got started, but that was about it.  I actually intend to hit all my goals this coming week (9 miles running, 125 curl-ups, and 125 push-ups).

  • Running:  10.41 miles (16.75 KM)
  • Curl-Ups:  50
  • Push-Ups:  50


PLASMA.  I started donating plasma again a week ago Thursday.  I like donating on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, which is what I did this last week.  I’ve decided to focus on leadership training on Lynda.com during that time.
