I just finished giving someone my take on it, and thought it might be good to drop here in a blog too! So, I hope you find it useful. <BR> <BR> How often do I do DDPY, and which workouts should I do? <BR> <BR> This is a great question, and the long and short of it is that there's not one best answer. A lot of people will tell you a lot of things, and they will probably all be good suggestions. What I can also tell you is that while ther...

HAAAAAAAAAA! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4812559 5 Guys wants me to enjoy their 'tasty' burgers ... with gluten ... HAAAAAAAAAA! <BR> <BR> <BR> I am in the habit of writing 'fine' eating establishments to see if they plan on offering Gluten Free options or Buffalo or Organic Beef options in the future. Sometimes a simple 'no' has me walking away with a, 'Huh, ok. You don't know what you're missing.', and leaves me in a much less fit of silly than a reply I got from 5 Guys. <BR> <BR> Now, they were nice, but dare I suggest a change ...

That's a question that has an easy answer, but attainment of the answer, sometimes, is as tough as catching lightning in a bottle. <BR> <BR> Asking yourself the question, listening and then answering honestly is hard to do, especially if you are coming off a fall. Sometimes you get up and run so hard at catching the lightning you don't realize what's in front of you. BOOM! All of your forward momentum and energy carries right into the WALL. ...

Thu, 27 Oct 2011 07:52:00 EST The Right Thing and the Hard Thing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4554751 It's so easy to get upset when you cannot realize your own needs, goals and dreams, but sometimes you have to so that others may realize theirs. Don't be so quick to take the easy way out. Those that you surround yourself sometimes need you more than you would ever know. Giving into your own emotions can rob others of the caring and love that they need. It may be the hardest thing to do, but it's often also the right thing to do. I guarantee you those you put before yourself won't forget ...

Yes, there's 10%. 10% of life that you cannot control, but the 90% ... heck ... the 90% is on your side, YOU control IT. The 90% is how you react, adapt and breath when the 10% hits. <BR> <BR> So, now that you got that, what's this question that's the only one you need to answer? WHAT DO I REALLY WANT? So, what DO you really want? <BR> <BR> You control what goes in your body. When you're picking something up, can you be strong enough to ask, "What do I really want?" ...

I started co-hosting with DDP a couple weeks ago and he gave me the chance when he was out this week to host myself. He could have put on a repeat, but instead he let 'Sparky' do it. And, to top it off, 2 surprise guests called, MARC MERO, and RAY LLOYD (GLACIER) to talk to ME. These guys were both WCW/WWE superstars and are completely inspirational. DDP told Marc I would be on, so Marc called to talk to me. TOO COOL! T...

At 37 years old, not being able to pull a sock on the morning, or walk up my yard holding my son's hand without getting winded, I was taking a pass on life. I lived on my own personal Beat Down Street that suffered no shortage of problems and emotional grav... Wed, 4 May 2011 23:04:14 EST
