Due to weather issues in New Orleans and some AVP announcements, we took a week off from posting. I wrote this article before the New Orleans tournament.

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good Easter and enjoyed a bit of candy, but not too much ☺ I caught my wife letting our son eat some candy with a friend of his.  I didn’t jump in and take it away.  No, I’m not the meanest dad in the world.  However, my son…

Mr Healthy Mondays: Conservation

I was racking my brain thinking what I should write about this week.  I kept telling myself, “I don’t feel like recycling an old topic, I’d like to write about something new.”  That’s when it hit me, I should write something about recycling and reducing our impact on the planet and consuming a little smarter. …

Mr Healthy Mondays: Try a little harder to be a little better

Mr Healthy Mondays: Building Muscle

Just because that guy at the gym who looks like a tank is drinking down 3 scoops of protein powder before he gets to his car, doesn’t mean that’s how you build muscle. Like everything else that happens in your body, building muscle is a science as well.  Everyone is different, sure, but there are…

Mr Healthy Mondays: Weight Loss Tips

Building on last week’s article, I want to just jump in to some really good information. One of the things I hear a lot from people I work with is, “Wow, I never knew that” or “I haven’t heard it put that way before.” A health concept that isn’t really promoted much is that we…
