While just a youngin’ to some of you readers here, I turned 30 a few months ago. I never thought the shit people say about your body and mental state were true until I hit it. While in one part I feel like I’m hitting that prime age of life, there had to be adjustments in my life. Today I’ll share 5 things I’ve changed in my life after hitting 30.
For better or worse, my home seems to be where people tend to converge. Whether it’s a holiday, a sports event, or even just a random Friday night, people gather at my home. I like to think that my wife and I are good hosts seeing the turnout we get at our events, but I began to think deeper on the subject. There are pros and cons to hosting things at your house for each member of your family. Today I’ll discuss some of my favorite, and least favorite parts, as well as some things you can try if you’ve never hosted.
Ah January, a time when everyone is on their A game right? Everyone is committed to getting fit/eating better, quitting smoking/drinking, saving more money, etc. All of these are great but they typically don’t last very long. The problem with new years resolutions is that they’re almost always destined to fail. Today, I’ll go over why resolutions typically fail and what you can do to create real change in your life this year
One facet of the Christmas season that I’ve observed is that people let their dietary choices go out the window. People just accept that they’ll be shoveling junk food in their mouths and chugging excess booze the whole time just to make a “resolution” to eat healthy in January, which usually has them back home on their lazy asses within two weeks. As I prepare for my collaboration with Team WB Fitness next month, I’m going to keep my diet clean this month and I’ll share my plan on keeping myself from looking like Santa by Christmas

Killing it in the gym is essential for muscle and strength growth, but the other side of the coin is food. If you’re not eating enough to sustain muscle growth, your hard work in the gym will not pay off. Today I’ll review 5 protein packed foods I eat regularly and how I prepare them to keep things interesting.
Our world gets more atomized and distracted every day. Everyone is too busy being “entertained” with all of this nonsense to really appreciate and understand human interaction. In speaking back and forth with some of the commenters here, the topic of getting together as a family for dinner came up. I thought about it deeper and realized that people are so wrapped up in things that don’t matter that they let their real life interactions slip. Today, I’ll share what I do with my family and the benefits I’ve seen from creating time to just be together.
