The Art of Hosting Events

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.

Avoiding the Holiday Gut

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

EDC: Family Edition

Introduction

For those of you who have done any reading on prepping and survival tactics, an EDC is probably a term you know very well.  For those of you new to the subject, you’d be surprised to know you already have an EDC, in the most technical sense.

An EDC, or Every Day Carry, is just that: Items you carry on your person every day.  For the non-prepper types, this would include items such as your keys, wallet, and cell phone.  This in the event of an emergency, or even a minor situation, will leave you woefully under-prepared.  Compounding this issue is the subject of making sure your family is prepared as well.   Continue reading “EDC: Family Edition”
