Lifestyle Dynamic Journey - Six Flags Great Adventure

  So I took the kids and the parental units to Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey.  I haven't been to this place in close to 14 years.  There are some new rides, but for the most part it hasn't changed.  Now we decided to go on what seems to be the hottest day of the year.  It had to have been in the mid 90s.  Sweat was pouring down, clothing getting swampy, and we haven't even gotten anywhere yet.   We decided to do the Safari drive through first as it was hot and we wanted to stay in the AC of the car.  The animals didn't have that luxury but the made do with whatever lakes and ponds they had in the enclosures.   After the drive thru safari (which really hasn't changed in 14 years except the baboons are no longer allowed to jump on your car) we headed into the main park.  The season pass this year provided free parking which is clutch when you see the $25 price tag for parking.  Thanks to the parental units we were able to utilize the handicap parking spots n

What does cutting food "On the bias" mean?

  It sounds more complex than it is. On the bias means, on an angle. Thats it. Nothing special.

Losing Weight One Pound at a Time!

  Over two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese.  That’s quite a high percentage of adults who have a need to shed a little or a lot of fat!  The only way to do this is one pound at a time! Many overweight individuals wish and hope for a quick cure to their weight problems.  They’ll try anything that promises instant results!  Unfortunately, these ‘miracle weight loss’ products are scams!  They may help a person shed some water weight, initially.  But, the fat isn’t going anywhere without a little effort on that person’s part! For those of you who have tried weight loss diets or are thinking about trying one, consider all the dieters who have tried the same diets and failed.  The number one reason for permanent weight loss failure is the inability to stick with the diet! Many individuals become ‘yo-yo’ dieters.  They try one diet for awhile, lose a few pounds, quit the diet, gain back the weight (and then some), and move on to another diet.  The process is repeated.

Lifestyle Dynamic Journey - Nashville Tennessee

  A trip to Nashville needs no introduction.  A wonderful location for food lovers, music fanatics, or anyone looking to have fun and get away from their daily grind of a life.  Downtown Nashville is less than 10miles from BNA, the international airport, that serves the area. Depending on when you arrive, you can be in some serious traffic with rush hour. The  purpose of this trip was basically good times, relaxation, and good food.  I was successful at all that.   So let's jump right in shall we? So as my first meal when I arrived, it was late so didn't want to go too far, was a local pizza place a block from my hotel.   Gino's East Pizza . It is a Chicago based company known for their deep dish pizzas with locations throughout the United States. Now being from NY, deep dish isn't my thing. So I just ordered a thin crust pizza with peppers and sausage. Looked good on the menu. When  it arrived, it looked even better.  Actually it smelt amazing.   It is about 12&qu

Can Nutrition Help Slow Down the Aging Process?

  We all age. That fact is inevitable.  But a lot of the negative changes that take place in our bodies are not. As we age, we become more susceptible to such things as heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and arthritis. However, medical research has shown that proper nutrition can slow down and even prevent many of these ailments. It is estimated that nearly one half of all health problems in the elderly are directly related to poor nutrition. The elderly are by and large some of the most poorly nourished people. Some reasons for this are as you age your sense of taste and smell decreases, it is harder to chew, and you just don’t feel hungry. In some cases, financial reasons may affect the food choices made and it may be harder to get out and shop for food due to various physical factors. On top of this, as you get older your body may not be able to absorb some of the nutrition from food as well as it could when you were younger. In some cases a good multivitamin (preferably in

Lifestyle Dynamic Journey Exercise Spotlight - High Pulley Cable Curls for Biceps

 This is a great option to really isolate the bicep and get a great pump throughout.  You will definitely feel this one! Check the video for execution.  For the standing high pulley cable curl you'll need a cable machine with two high pulley cable attachments. Set up by attaching a single grip handle to each of the high pulley cables and selecting the weight you want to use on the stack. Grip each of the cables with an underhand grip (palms facing up) and stand in the center with your arms outstretched. This is the starting position. Keeping your upper arms and body fixed, curl the handles in towards your body as far as possible. Pause, and then slowly lower the weight back to the starting position. Repeat for desired reps.

Lifestyle Dynamic Journey - Fishing and the Woods

  It's not everyday that I can get away from the hustle, away from the work, and just shut my mind off.  When I do get the chance, being in the woods, in nature, allows me to do so.  Couple that with a little fishing in a nearby lake (catch & release) and I am one happy man.  It is these little things that comfort me.  These little chances to "reset".  I mean, just look for yourself... Putting things into perspective in your life is never a bad idea.  When you realize that you have been stressing over things that actually do not matter much is a very liberating feeling.  You get to control yourself, your thoughts. Ultimately you are the one in control over your life.  Are you just going to be a spectator in it or are you going to participate? Time to participate star!  Life is about living! Make time for yourself.  Do something that you enjoy.  You will thank yourself for it in the long run.  Believe me.   Eat Well, get a little active, travel and live.  I think I
