Watching your weight.
It's something I've been doing a lot more lately since I've passed out of my 30s and started on my 40s. Our metabolism changes as we get older, so we have to change our eating habits or it's "Danger Will Robinson!"
I've never been a big gym guy, but one opened up across the street from our home that's open 24/7 and that's perfect, along with the price... $30/month? - wow! For less than the price of a coffee I can work out for as long as I want in a clean space, alone!
Working out alone is a thing with me. I don't like to be with other people when I'm "in the mode". I find working out to be a kind of meditation, for me. My wife thinks I'm just weird... I know I'm weird, but anyways.
So along with hitting the gym at 4am, ...
It's the playoffs. It's a big deal, I get it.
Passions are high especially in Toronto because after 9 years the Toronto Maple Leafs have made the playoffs!
The city is going nuts and the fans even more so. Yesterday was "Blue & White" day because the Leafs had their first playoff game on home ice and it's been a long time since that's happened. Yeah, they lost... we'll get them next time.
The part I don't get is why people have to resort to violence? It's a game, I understand you get a little "overwhelmed" so to say when the goal light goes off or your team loses a game... but is that any reason to punch someone in the face because they are wearing the opposing teams colors? I think not.
This was the case for Game 2 in Boston. The Leafs beat the Bruins (in Boston) ...
Okay, we've been lucking out with the weather lately.
The first little chunk of Spring really had us all scratching our heads but it looks as if it's finally starting to come around.
The desire to slide on a pair of shorts and sit on a patio to enjoy some beverages and food is overwhelming.
With spring comes flowers, green leaves, fresh air and new life. I found a photo montage of "new life" that is just too good
not to SHARE with you. It's a pit bull and a few baby friends. The best part is seeing in the dogs eyes, how much he REALLY
enjoys playing with these babies. See for yourself and feel free to comment below what makes Spring fantastic for you.
The other amazing part of these photos is the love these animals have for one another.
We can all learn something from these ...
A couple of weeks ago I posted a blog featuring a Dove video that went viral about how women view themselves. It was pretty powerful and received a lot of interesting feedback. CLICK HERE TO WATCH IT.
Like most videos that have the viral element, there is always a "spoof" in waiting and this one is no exception.
There has to be a ying to the yang, a black to the white and in this case... a man to the woman.
They've done a pretty good job with this and it's hilarious to see how the final sketches come through with the different descriptions.
When was the last time you laughed until you cried? Those are the best moments, the ones that make you want to share that laughter or that moment with your friends and co-workers.
This is one of those moments. He's got a series of videos and a great schtick, going on with this.
Here's the scoop: German guy tries to make sense of North American idioms.
This is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time and it's so simple it's brilliant! Please share this with your friends if you also find it pretty damn funny!
"Jennifer Is A Real Party Pooper"
I stumbled upon a video this morning that I thought you should watch and share with your friends and family on Facebook. It's a promotional video from Dove.
I love the message they are sending out to people (specifically women) about not being so hard on yourself and to accept and love yourself more. It's amazing how advertising has changed thanks to social media... sell jobs are now relatable, emotional and motivational videos that strike a chord that make you want to share.
Advertisement or not, the idea is brilliant and the message is delivered. Watch as women are put in the same room as a sketch artist and can only describe themselves to him. Later he brings in another woman or man who has talked and met with the sketched woman and they proceed to describe her. It's amazing to see the differences.
Please share your thoughts if ...
We just got back from a week's vacation in Florida and this morning was a sad reminder about this so called "Spring" we are having in Canada. Ugh.
There was freezing rain this morning (in Barrie) and I saw it as a cool opportunity to grab my iPhone and make a super neat YouTube video about it.
Yes, it's not a great thing for the roads and travelling but everything looks just a little bit cooler when it's coated in a sheet of ice. The good news is, it won't be staying long... we are supposed to be getting a high of 8 degrees before the day ends.
How many times has it happened to you? You mix a drink after a long day at work and then go into the freezer for ice and there's nothing there. Ugh. Frustrating.
It's not a hard thing to do, really. When you use the last batch of ice cubes, you grab the tray and fill it up with water then put it back in the freezer. Simple. I've seen 4 year olds master this.
Its such a common thing to do, someone has decided to make a recipe on how to master it and it's definitely worth a read. When you get a chance check out the Ratings and Reviews for a good laugh.
