Why You Should Be Embarrassed By Your Dad Bod

I may be late to the party on this one, but I just can’t keep my mouth shut over the celebration of mediocrity that is the dad bod.  It may seem easier in the short term to just accept your body in its current wretched form, especially when nearly every new age media outlet encourages you to, but doing so amounts to you spitting in the face of who you ultimately could be.

Practically speaking, you’re sacrificing your health and longevity to “maintain” (I use this term so very loosely) your shit physique just because it’s...


Are you prepared to lose it all?

I was asked a while back, “What do you do to relax?” and I honestly didn’t have an answer. It was at this moment that I realized the sheer magnitude of how much my life has changed over the past few years.

Overcoming Your Fears to Become Victorious

With life comes the changing of the tides, and also where those who stay stagnant will perish.

The exact point where we go wrong is where we start substituting goals for a purpose.  You want to drop 15 pounds? That’s wonderful. Why do you want to drop 15 pounds specifically?  What do you think will be different in your life once you hit that arbitrary number? What happens after?  This may be hard to believe, but people do not...


How to Eat Big on a Budget

“Nine out of ten English chefs have their names on their chests. Who do they think they are? They're dreamers. They're jokes. Just ask yourself how many chefs in this country have Michelin stars and how many have their names on their jackets. We all wear blue aprons in my kitchen because we're all commis (a junior chef). We're all still learning.”
-Marco Pierre White- (the Chef who made Gordon Ramsay cry)


There is a reason for starting out with this quote. I am not an expert, I do not claim to know all & I am still learning....
