Embarrassing Confession

The year was 2014. It was an amazing day in Denver, CO. I woke up at my 4 AM. I opened up my Gratitude Journal, with my eyes still struggling to focus. The first thing I wrote down that I was grateful for was my family being warm during the snow storm in Georgia. After a couple of hours of …

Four Reasons You’re Still Hungry After You Eat

This weekend, my wife and I went to Charleston, SC to visit her uncle and she was doing a nutrition seminar at our friend’s bootcamp. It was the first time my wife did the presenting and I got to relax and watch. My diet wasn’t on point all weekend. It was like I couldn’t get full. We were surrounded by …

Sample Meal Plan for Busy People

Last night, my wife and I watched a 5-minute video of two guys battling it out with Dad jokes. I was in heaven. For example… What do you call a deer with no eyes? No idea. So bad, so awesome. What else is so bad is pretending to be a victim to “time” and using that as an excuse to …

5 Ways to Avoid Late Night Snacking

Last weekend, I got to play “Mr. Mom” while my wife was out of town. I did the usual things like tell horrible jokes and play hide-and-go-seek. Fun times! Now to be honest, when I’m trying to balance my business and making sure I’m being a great Dad, I can get a little stressed. And maybe you can relate, but …

Six Week Diet Habit Template

Happy Valentine’s Day! Meh. I’m kidding. This “holiday” is just really cheesy. I don’t get it. It’s like… “Oh yeah. It’s Valentine’s Day. I love you. Here’s some mysterious plastic filled with hot air and some flowers you’ll never water.”  Then you go to a really crowded restaurant. The waiter has a snarled look on his face because he was told, “Hey, you’re …

Shocking Text from My Wife

I can’t believe I still got up at 4 am since I watched the whole game last night. It was the most intense thing I’ve ever seen. It was a miracle comeback… You see, my wife and I played Monopoly last night and I finally claimed Boardwalk and Park Place… Zing! OK, moving on with what really happened… Now unless …

26-Minute Bootcamp Workout

I got to spend the weekend with my wife, Sabrina, while my parents watched our boys. The conference we went to was about 90% women. You would think that would make me uncomfortable, but oddly enough, I connect with women easier than men. It might be because back in the day when I ran bootcamps and trained 1-on-1, 90% of my …

Don’t Worry I’m OK

Don’t worry, I’m OK. Fortunately my family is safe and sound. We survived… we survived… Hilarity. Pure hilarity. This is the “blizzard” we had here in Georgia. My church is even shut down, so that means no basketball today. Luckily, I have “Jasmine” (my 24kg kettlebell) 10 feet away from me so I’ll be doing some KB Swings to stay active. …
