Life is wonderful and fun and difficult all at the same time. Throughout our lives we have many choices to make. Sometimes they are easy and fun like where we want to go on our next vacation. Some are more difficult such as deciding to live a healthier and happier life a new job or moving to a new area. These decisions ebb and flow and at some points in our lives it feels as if every single decision we need to make is a difficult one. With decisions, action is required to make it a reality. Let me explain.
It's past New Years and many people have gone back to the gym to get started on their New Years resolutions. In fact many have already quit. I've just started. Last week was the first day back in a while. I've been too busy with other things over the past few months, cars, work, family the list goes on and on. Life gets in the way for all of us at one point or another. For me it was the last few months.
Holiday times are times when we get together with our friends and loved ones to have good food and good company. That includes lots of sweet and rich foods. Its fun to try some new recipes. Instead of traditional pumpkin pie why not try something new this holiday season.
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. When a holiday comes upon us we enjoy it and we do the best we can to find ways to celebrate. We celebrate with our friends or family, we go to others houses to watch the fireworks and we eat lots of unhealthy food.
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. Feelings of amazement and admiration consumed me leading to a life changing epiphany which was; if I had their fitness levels and bodies, I would definitely be able to shut the body shamers up, which lead to me signing up at the gym. Enough about me, although let’s be honest, these actions lead most people to signing up at a gym rendering them a gym newbie. The aim of this article is to give insight into the life and feelings of a gym newbie.
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. I don’t like the taste of tap water but don’t like buying bottled water. A fantastic alternative is the Brita Water Pitcher. 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.
