    [caption id="attachment_6270" align="alignright" width="278"] Source: Tadias[/caption] Yes, Chef is a book written by Marcus Samuelsson that I just finished reading and couldn't wait to get my review out to you all that I pushed it to today.  You may think that from the title this is just a recipe book, but you couldn't be further from the truth.  This book is not just a story about a chef but really about any immigrant to America who works hard and pushes their way to the top of the mountain only to have that mountain ...

[caption id="attachment_6262" align="alignright" width="200"] Lance Armstrong Sporting The Oakley Jawbone[/caption] Oakley Split Jacket sunglasses.....have you ever seen them?  Of course you have.  Lance wears them.  You know the ones with the yellow on the bottom to match his Livestrong company colors.  You have probably seen them on more than just Lance and wondered, like I did, if they were worth the hype and in the end really the cost.  I fortunately, or unfortunately, happened to be in the market for sunglasses and started shopping...

Mexican Waffles?  What could that be?  Well, I'm here to tell you that it could possibly be the best breakfast food I have ever made.  There was sweet and spicy.  There was cool and heat.  Then of course there was the fact that is was perfect for a recovery meal. As you know I love breakfast food and it doesn't matter what time of the day I eat it, as it always tastes great.  After seeing the show The Best Thing I Ever Ate I was inspired to make these waffles, but I couldn't make them in the middle of the week beca...

[caption id="attachment_6228" align="alignright" width="225"] Source: Dan Lew[/caption] I will not apologize for being who I am to anybody and part of being who I am is being competitive.  And I am not talking about just sports, but I am also not talking about racing against others.  I am speaking about being competitive about beating myself.  I get up each and every morning ready to train and create a better athlete than I was when I went to bed the night before. In the past month I have been called a masochist and crazy amongst all t...

Yesterday I posted More Sh*t To Avoid which was a follow-up to Sh*t I'm Never Eating Again and one of the comments from Jeff Irvin over at Dangle The Carrot was to do a post on sh*t we can actually eat and that it would be a short post. With that in mind I am posting my dinners from the past week.  This is the foods that I do eat and an interesting thing occurred to me this week while I was following this diet.  I gained weight, and yes a part of that can be attributed to the Ultra-Sherpa'ing I did for Karen during her El Sc...

Pork adobada is a very simple meal and one that I was inspired to make after watching Diners, Drive-In and Dives on Food Network.  Speaking of Triple D.....how is it that Guy Fieri doesn't weight 900 pounds right now?  Have you ever watched the show?  He eats at every restaurant and typically samples 2-3 meals and with 3 restaurants per show we are looking at 6-9 tastings.  I know that he isn't eating the whole thing, at least on camera, but he is also not eating salads.  He has clearly gotten bigger since the show star...

That's A Wrap......get it?  See what I did there?  I made a wrap and used the old movie production statement to make a STATEMENT..... OK, so I had no intention of posting this recipe today but after I put a picture of this up on Facebook yesterday  friend of mine asked for the recipe to put into the national newsletter that he sends out.  Not wanting to miss the opportunity to really promote this wrap I decided that I would put the recipe up today as well. THAT'S A WRAP Ingredients: 1/2c Whole Wheat Flour, 5 Tbsp Water1/2c...

[caption id="attachment_6181" align="alignright" width="190"] Source: Blog My Runs[/caption] It's summer here in the United States and in case you didn't know it just turn on your Facebook and/or Twitter feed and see all the people bitching and moaning that it is 98* and they were sweating while they were working out.  As a matter of fact take a screen shot of it because in about 5 months those same people will be bitching and moaning that it is cold out and they have to wear 4 tops and their boogers were frozen. Anyway, that is not the ...

[caption id="attachment_6156" align="alignright" width="360"] Source: Nancy Santana Blog[/caption] D-Day is how I'm feeling today.  What I mean by that is I am putting a stake in the ground and taking my training and living my life to the next level starting yesterday but since I already wrote a post yesterday this is becoming D-Day: Determination Day. Yesterday as I was driving home I heard that song that has the word YOLO in it.  Not being the hippest cat on the block (I know you are shocked) I had no clue what YOLO was, but then I li...

[caption id="attachment_6145" align="alignright" width="360"] Source: Training For Warriors[/caption] Forming habits takes approximately 3 weeks.  By habits I am not saying good or bad, just habits.  You can create a bad habit in as much time as it takes to create a good habit and the same can be said for breaking that habit.  A bad habit does not have to be around forever.  You need to make up your mind that it is a bad habit and stop doing it, which is not easy, but realize that within less than a month that habit will be broken. I ...
