Planning a Cheap Summer Picnic

As more and more kids just spend their days with their face glued to a screen, I try to come up with fun things for my kids to do outside.  Sunday’s are a “device free” day where we all unplug and enjoy each other’s company.  I try to find things to do that don’t cost too much, but are also rewarding.  You’d be surprised how little it takes for the kids to have a great time they’ll remember forever

Nutrition: What Everyone Gets Wrong

As I return to posting to Team WB Fitness today, I’m going over a topic that I’ve only just recently began to witness and comment on.  I’ll paraphrase Ronnie Coleman here when I say “Errybody wanna lose body fat but nobody wanna give up the pizza.”  Hardly Shakespeare, but you know what I mean. The biggest bit of knowledge I’ve learned this year about fitness is that your diet has to be as important as your training. Today, I’ll go over my insights and keys to lowering body fat.

Meal Prep 101:Pepper Chicken Breast

I’m back from a much needed and as usual, way too short vacation with the family.  For meal prep for the week, I wanted to change it up from my fritatta  (as there are too many eggs on this site lately) so I went for a more traditional high protein lunch for the week; chicken breast.  Today I’ll go over what you need and how I prepared and portioned it.

J. Nyx Vacation Lifting Routine

Right now I’m on my weeks vacation.  A time for relaxation, overeating, drinking and no workouts right?  WRONG!  That’s right, I am actually going to continue to lift on vacation.  Something about having the time to do it makes me happy to get before everyone and get a quick session in.  Sure I could go join a local gym, and I may get a day pass here or there, but I actually brought some of the gym with me.  Today I’ll go over my quick program that I’ll be doing for the next week while on vacation.

Always a Leader

I took a day off Monday to hit up an amusement park with another couple that my wife and I are friends with. They have 4 kids, we have 3 and on this day we just decided to get away from being parents for a day, or so I thought.  It turned out that what seemed to be a normal, functioning couple turned out to be quite the contrary which lead to some action on my part.  Today I’ll discuss our adventure and how I had to lead even when I didn’t expect it.
