What Having a Degree Means

Growing up and throughout high school you hear about how important a college degree is. People ask you what college you want to go to and what your major will be. I too believed this. I had an interest in computers and figured I would get my computer science degree. Luckily for me, I had good grades and high enough scores that I had a variety of options for what college to go to. Unfortunately I was someone who procrastinated. I ended up going to the University of North Texas, a local college. They actually had a pretty good computer science …

My Fitness Journey with Insanity by Beachbody: Week 1

Just finished week 1 of the Insanity workouts by Beachbody. It is definitely a very challenging workout routine. It was a struggle at times but I feel that the results will definitely be worth it. Initial Thoughts Since I am out of shape, I figured it would be hard for me to really complete the Insanity workouts and I was initially afraid that I wouldn’t get a good workout. I was completely wrong. Although the workouts are intense and Shaun T pushes you to your limits, there are plenty of reminders to go at your own pace. Shaun T also …

Meal Replacement Shakes: Shakeology vs Herbalife

Recently I crossed paths with someone who was a user and distributor of Herbalife. They talked about the success they had with the product, which was great. Unfortunately it didn’t stop there. They wanted to talk about how great Herbalife was and how Shakeology didn’t really work. They claimed that people could not change anything about their lifestyle and eating habits but still see results if they added Herbalife shakes. I find this completely hilarious because if someone eats the same bad 3 meals and just added Herbalife, there is no way they would see results. Adding in extra calories without …

Starting Insanity Workouts

So my girlfriend, Anna and I finally started the Insanity Workouts by Beachbody. It isn’t exactly fair because Anna has been instructing an insanity class at Turbo Fitness and Nutrition in Carrollton, TX. It’s ok. It just means that I will have try to hard and catch up with her. As you can see from the pics I need a lot of work in my mid section as well as getting some definition all over. These pics are hard to look at but hopefully will be a great motivator to get my butt in gear and do great with the Insanity …

Beachbody’s P90 Workout Launches Soon

Tony Horton has developed another workout program in the P90 family. It’s just named P90. It is a workout that is geared toward anyone, but especially for the average person out there. The P90X, P90X2, and P90X3 were hardcore, intense programs. Unfortunately hardcore workouts aren’t for everyone. Some people just want to lose 10-20 pounds or just get back some of the muscle tone they had when they were young. Others just want to get in shape so they can wake up without body aches and they can have the energy to run and play with their kids. So the …

What I Would Do If I Won The Lotto

People always love to imagine what they would if they won the lottery. I am no exception. I have dreamt about this through all phases of my life. I never really thought I would win, but I just loved to dream about it. When I was younger it was the typical wish list. Cars, houses, boats, etc. Tons of material things. I guess as I have aged I’ve come to realize that although those things would be fun, they probably wouldn’t keep me happy in the long-term. Well except maybe the house. I have never been one to want something …
