826 0702 300x168 Why is there CORN in my apple sauce????

 

We usually look at labels before we buy something but sometimes something sneaks in.  This is one of those times.  The logic of it doesn't even make sense.  Who would want to buy apple sauce with corn in it?  Why would you ever put corn in apple sauce?

More Than a Number on the Scale

A post from Sarah (tall trainer's wife)

My BIGGEST FEAR…

Posted by on May 22, 2014 at 1:32 pm

It’s tough to find the truly biggest fear since I don’t spend much of my time trying to figure out everything I’m afraid of.  I know this is WAY up there on the fear scale.  It’s not snakes, public speaking, or cancer though all three can be very scary.

“On the other side of No is JOY!” – Pastor Bill Bambach

 

Our temptations whether they be food, sex, alcohol, gambling, work, and other good things used wrong all lie to us.  They tell us do _______________ because it will make you happy.  It’s exciting.  Tasty.  Fulfilling.  And for a few brief moments they are.  We indulge in our temptation and get our fill/fix.  Then what?….

The Sarah and Jeremy Story

God has blessed me with an amazing woman.  She stretches me to be better.  I love her like crazy!

We have now been married 4 years though both Sarah and I both agree it feels like 10!  But in a good way.  I cannot imagine life with out her and it feels like we are old friends, like I’ve known her when I was a kid.

29 Things I’ve Learned in my 10 Years as a Personal Trainer

Posted by on January 20, 2013 at 11:34 pm

This month marks 10 years that I have been training people.  I have learned, unlearned, and relearned many things it that time.  Research has added a lot to our understanding of how the body works and changed many things.  Plus I’ve grown personally.  I went from working at a club as a trainer and group exercise instructor, to managing the personal training department, to moving back home and starting my own training business.

Where do the good ones hangout?

 

The chances of finding a high quality mate in a bar are very slim.  You need to go where there is a higher concentration of loyal, consistent, and healthy people.  It’s the same with food.  Bar food is not the type of food you should get married to.  (For this article married to food = eat it, since once you eat it that food becomes a part of you).  You need to go where the good food hangs out.  Not the chip isle of the grocery store.  Shop the produce, deli, fresh meats, eggs, etc.  The middle isles of the grocery store are generally full of the non-marriage material and cheat on you types of food.  They promise you happiness and health but once you marry them they turn around and make your pants too tight and you depressed.
