One of the best things about creating this blog is the freedom to write and express myself anyway I want. Since I’m not getting paid, I don’t have to answer to sponsors or advertisers. I have the luxury of writing pretty much whatever the hell I want. Well today is one of those days where I’m going to do just that, but I promise it ties in with health and fitness. I’ve often talked about him but never formally introduced him or posted a picture. This guy’s a member of our family so this post is long over due. [Read more…]
Well we’re smack dab in the middle of fall. The air is cool and crisp, the leaves are a festival of different colors and the smell of pumpkin spiced everything is in the air. What better way to take in the fall season then to get outside and enjoy it with the people you love. Before winter hits and we’re all bundled up like the Michelin man here are some fall outdoor activities to get you and your family moving: [Read more…]
Happy Friday everyone. Well our time in Europe is finally coming to a close. If you’re reading this our family is already on a flight back to Canada. Just in time for Canadian Thanksgiving! It’s been a great 5 months. Learned a lot about this part of the world and made some great friends too. The biggest thing I’m going to take home with me is how healthy I’ve felt the last 5 months. I feel the healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. I think it has something to do with all the fresh fruits and vegetables we’ve been eating. You will find no ‘organic’ section in the grocery store here. Everything is organic and fresh. A strawberry looks the way it should. Small and juicy. Not the size of your fist! I won’t dip too [Read more…]
If you’re like most guys, you read the title of this post and thought to yourself:
“What an idiot. Does this guy have a death wish?”
I’ll tread lightly….
First I have the utmost respect for mother’s. You have the world’s toughest job. I’m confident most young men could not endure being pregnant or child labour. I was amazed to watch my wife go from a routine pregnancy to a not so routine delivery. It was exhausting just watching my wife go through labour. She was one hell of a trooper!
The fact is women gain weight [Read more…]
A long time ago I read a quote by some rich guy. His name is Warren Buffett. Warren has a lot of money.
His net worth is estimated to be $70+ billion. Warren was once the richest dude in the world but he kinda let himself go a bit, and slid down to #3.
He’s arguably the most successful investor in the 20th century, maybe even of all time. Unlike your uncle Roy or the coffee truck guy who always has an inside stock tip, Warren is the real deal. Basically if this guy ever told you to go buy stock in a company you wouldn’t just walk…you’d run. As someone who has amassed so much wealth, you’d figure he’d be ballin’. His life is quite the [Read more…]
What’s the Deal?
As a busy family on the run we’re often looking for ways to make our household more efficient. I’ve often wondered what’s up with frozen fruits and vegetables. Are they healthy? Are they fake? Do they have weird sci-fi sounding chemicals added to them to keep them fresh? Are they just for cheap or lazy people? Up until now, the only thing I’ve ever known about frozen fruits and vegetables:
- They make great ice packs after a sports injury.
- They’re usually found in the back of people’s freezer with an elastic wrapped around them.
Well I finally decided to let my fingers do the walking and find out what’s up with frozen fruits and vegetables. [Read more…]
