Tutorial: Foundation for Apps Setup With AngularJS Best Practices

Lately I have been diving deep into responsive web development and AngularJS. For the responsive part I have been using Zurb’s Foundation. I really like Foundation and found it really easy to work with. Unfortunately there are issues with their JavaScript interactivity when you try to use it with AngularJS.  That is why I was excited when Zurb announced their Foundation for Apps. Foundation for Apps Foundation for Apps uses a lot of cutting edge front end technologies. They use flex box for their grid system which gives greater flexibility. AngularJS is also built-in.

Review: Perry’s Steakhouse in Frisco

At the end of last year during my lunches at work, I noticed that they were building a new steakhouse by the Stonebriar Mall. I love steakhouses so this intrigued me. As it neared completion I noticed it was a Perry’s Steakhouse. I had not heard of Perry’s before so I had to look it up. I was pleasantly surprised to see it was a quality steakhouse that started in Houston. So for this Valentine’s Day I decide that I would take my girlfriend there. I actually made the reservations for the day after Valentine’s Day so we could pick off …

Snowboarding Mt. Baker

Had a chance to make it up to Seattle this year and snowboard at Mt. Baker. I had heard a lot of good things about how good the powder normally was on Mt. Baker. Unfortunately this year has been a bad year. We got there and there were few trails open on the mountain and it was very rainy. We still managed to have fun, but we definitely had to make the best of a bad situation. Here are some pics: You can see the full album on my Facebook page.  

Meal Replacement Shakes: Shakeology vs AdvoCare Trim

After comparing Shakeology to Herbalife’s Formula 1 , it got me curious on how Shakeology stacks up to other meal replacement shakes. I recently have heard some talk about AdvoCare’s Trim Meal Replacement Shakes. I know AdvoCare has been around awhile, but the only product I knew was their Spark energy drink. I knew they did other products geared toward sports, but didn’t really think of them as a nutrition or weight loss company. It’s funny because they are a company geared toward nutrition, energy, and weight-loss. Cost Again we see that Shakeology is more expensive, but not by much. The retail …

Insanity Classes Now At American Indoor Sports in Carrollton

My girlfriend, Anna Turos got into Beachbody last year. She liked the nutrition guides as well as the workout programs. She became really involved in it and wanted to help people so she decided to become a coach. Since she was so interested in Beachbody, I helped her research different things. I wanted to make sure everything was legit and that it would help her to reach her goals. I was pleasantly surprised with what I discovered and soon got involved by signing up for Shakeology as well as the P90X3 program. Last year my interests were very scattered for a lot of …
