Finding Time in the AM

My life is pretty busy.  Having a full time job as a Systems Administrator, 3 kids, a wife, house being built, after school activities, homework, and studying for my certification exams is a lot on one plate.  That said, you need time to be by yourself and do things you want to do.  For me this is going to the gym in the early morning.  I have always been an early riser, but for anyone who can, I’d recommend getting up earlier in the morning if possible.  Today I’ll go over the benefits I’ve found from getting up early in the mornings.

Much of my reading these days has been about bodybuilding.  As you all know, I’m on the Team WB Fitness program that is, you guessed it, a bodybuilding program.  When I am doing something, I want to know all about it, and research it and learn all there is to know on a the subject.  Naturally, I have been reading Arnold Schwarzenegger’s books.  If you want advice, I say go to the best.  In his book “The Education of a Bodybuilder”, Arnold explains a method he used inside and outside the gym to reach success.  Today I’ll explain what they are, and how I’ve been using this method in my own life to succeed.

Chores, Allowance and How To Get Your Kids Involved At Home

Today it seems that kids aren’t expected to do jack shit outside of school work, and half the time most parents don’t even care about that.   All I ever see is kids sitting around with their faces buried in devices, their parents mindless zombies who do the same, and these kids are just expected to exist and flat out demand new things from their parents without working for it.  Today I’ll share how things work in my house and some tips for any of you dads who may need to lay down the law at home Continue reading “Chores, Allowance and How To Get Your Kids Involved At Home”
