Last night I watched a documentary on Netflix called “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.”
This documentary followed the journey of an Australian man named Joe Cross who went on a 60 day juice fast to help him lose weight and regain his health.

Today in Milwaukee it is a brisk 7 degrees outside right now – another below freezing winter day in Milwaukee.
Though it may be a bit below the average temperature this time of year, this cold is expected. Those of us living in Milwaukee know that in winter it will be cold – rather obvious.
With the cold weather many people go into hibernation mode. I mean, let’s be honest, it is a whole lot easier to just stay at home, stay warm, and not worry about staying fit . Lazy days are the norm for many people during Milwaukee winters. Continue reading

Jerry Rice’s nickname is The G.O.A.T. – The Greatest of all Time.
He is quite possibly the greatest football player the NFL has ever seen – holding plenty of NFL receiving records. However, what is most interesting to me is how he was able to do so.
Jerry Rice didn’t just play well for a couple of seasons, he consistently played at an elite level, better than anyone else, year after year after year after year after year (I think you get the point). Continue reading
