Get Out of my House!!

For most of us, summer is basically here already.  While the “unoffical” start is Memorial Day, the nice weather makes me want to get outside and do things.  I want to be out in the sun, with the family, enjoying the day and each others company.  Yet, as simple as this may seem, I’m seeing a disturbing trend these days with families, and especially children.  There seems to be a lack in the desire to spend time together outside.  Today I’ll go over why this is a problem, and what you can do to maximize your summer.

Be Your Own Man

Do you guys know that couple that are always doing something together?  You rarely ever see them apart and they tend to engage in all the same activities together.  Last weekend I witnessed a couple like this.  The guy a legit hard working guy and his fiance a good mom, but they have a flaw; they feel the need to spend every free second together.  This is commonplace for many married couples I see, and in my opinion, it leads to a boring, miserable existence.  Today I’ll go over why this is toxic to you, your wife, and your relationship and what you can do about it.

Protein Pick Me Up

As all of you know, I get up at the ass-crack of dawn to go to the gym.  In fact, before the sun is up I’m on my way there. An important part of bodybuilding is getting your macros, especially protein.  Also, it being the early morning, I like to have some coffee prior to starting my day.  My stomach would feel all bloated and full if I had a protein shake, then a few cups of coffee.  Then it hit me, to combine the two.  Today I’ll share my caffeine infused protein shake, and how to tailor it to your personal fitness needs.

The Easyway to Quit Drinking

As some of you know, I did a post not too long ago about how I quit smoking.  2018  seems to be a year of change for me as I have put another habit I had wanted to quit to rest; alcohol.  I’ve found that despite the title of this post, that I had a harder time kicking booze than cigs.  Today I’ll give you guys a recap on why I decided to give up the sauce and how I decided to make it final.

Playing Hooky

Im sure the lot that frequents our site are no stranger to the concept of playing hooky.  You know, where you skip school and go do whatever all day.  But what does that have to do with a site geared toward married men with families.  I’m glad you asked, because I came up with a way to do this as an adult.  I’ll offer how and why you should do this, and how much fun I actually had when the wife and I just took a vacation from life for a day.
