As a fit athlete I get asked often if I’m willing to join various MLM companies, be part of their team. They look at me as someone who can market for them and as all MLM’s work, the more specialists in their pyramid the more money they can make.
People ask me on a daily basis what do you do to keep motivated? How do you make sure that you go to the gym on a consistent basis? Why do you eat so well?
It was a usual Saturday evening, snuggled up by the fire with my favourite hot coco, catching up on the first season of ‘Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian.’ Khloe’s ever so perfect, dreamy figure got me thinking about, “What is the ideal feminine figure that majority of women all around the world, myself included, would die to have?” The answer was as clear as the light of day and summed up into one flawless Disney character, Barbie. There is something so alluring to men and women about Barbie, perhaps it is; the tiny waist, flat tummy, long toned shiny legs, the perfect rear and the right amount of curve to the hips. Realistically this figure is nearly impossible to achieve which has resulted in, the reintroduction of the corset called, the waist trainer. This article aims to expose the raw truth of this ratchet item that belongs in the 19th century.
Another holiday is upon us! For those of us in the United States, it is our national birthday, the 4th of July.

The Gym Newbie
Evenings for most people are filled with; scrolling through Instagram, having a few treats and catching up on their dose of Netflix. This is the way my evenings used to be all the time that was until, scrolling through my Instagram I came across Ana Cheri and Greek God Fit.

Call me Benjamin Button. For those of you who don’t know the reference, Benjamin Button is the story of a man who was born old and became younger throughout his life. It was first a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald and more recently a movie starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.
People have always asked me how old I am. When I was a little, not more than 12 or 13 people mistook me for someone who was going to be a senior in high school. Now as time has progressed I keep getting mistaken for someone who is younger. If I keep my hair short and no beard most people don’t have a clue how old I really am. I can recall several times this has happened in the last 5 years.

The Brita Water Pitcher Overview
Water is one of the most important things we put into our bodies. You can live a long time without food but not very long at all without water. I drink over a gallon of water each and every day.

This water pitcher can hold up to 10 cups of water filtered and ready for use. You can keep it in the refrigerator to keep it chilled or leave it on the counter if you only want to have room temperature water. Let me feature some of the benefits of having a Brita filter.
People always ask “What do I do to get in shape?” They ask questions like “What if I do 100 push-ups a day?” “If I'm doing 10 push-ups every day how long will be till I see results?” Or they ask “If I am doing sit ups and push-ups will my body change?
While these are not stupid questions, they are not the best way to go about getting in shape. If somebody has not been active at all I give them a couple of simple guidelines.
