Training On A Budget

Posted in Weight Loss on 15.03.14

This year, my New Year’s resolution was to get into shape. Unfortunately, the pie in the sky luxury of owning my own personal trainer Leeds was cost prohibitive, and the very notion of going to a public gym makes my skin crawl. On January 1st, I set to work with nothing more than a gym mat, two ten pound dumbbells, and a pocket full of dreams. Although I was scarcely expecting to see any measurable results at all, I was pleased to find the contrary. Within two short weeks, I had practically slashed my body fat ratio in half. And with the money I saved from not wasting gas going to and from a crowded gym, I was easily able to afford the healthier foods that are the cornerstone of any salubrious lifestyle. It just goes to show how a little hard work and perseverance can go a long way.

Simple Solutions for upgrading your Home

Posted in Home Improvement on 23.01.14

Around 6 months ago I moved to Georgia. This summer has been incredibly hot and I have been wanting to do some improvements on the windows in my home. Nothing major but,I wanted to replace the blinds that are in the windows. My current blinds are extremely dusty and the ends are bent inward as though an animal had repeatedly pushed its way through to sit on the window sill. I could probably contend with the vigorous cleaning but, these blinds were ruined. I went out and purchased Manchester shutters which were sturdier than my current blinds. I purchased Cherry Wood color to go with my Decor. They also have been great for blocking the sun during the day when it’s extremely hot. Also the ventilation has been much better to where I don’t have to use our air condition unit as much as before. In the end I would say I have made a great upgrade to my home and added comfort.

Giving Mom Her Moves Back

Posted in Old Age on 18.01.14

“Slow down” is not a phrase in my mother’s vocabulary. Now that she’s retired from her teaching job, she’s out and about all the time. One of her favorite pastimes is country dancing classes at the senior center. She’s getting exercise and even met some new friends.

I thought she was having a great time until she came to me one day looking worried. She was embarrassed because she had leaked urine during a dance with a nice gentleman, and she was afraid it would happen again. We researched solutions together and found male incontinence products could help. They’re discrete, easy for her to use, comfortable enough to try all her new dance steps, and she doesn’t have to worry about wetness or odor anymore. She can just go back to worrying about having a great time.
