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

5 Ways To Eat Less And Lose Weight

This gallery contains 3 photos.

During my last cheat day (The one day a week I get to eat whatever I want) I decided to measure out just how much of the Lucky Charms cereal I had just poured into the massive bowl I was using.

You see, throughout my years of loving cereal such as Lucky Charms I’d always seen the label, noticed that it was only 110 calories per serving, and gone to town, eating till my heart was content.

Finding Happiness Every Day

I’m back at the Colectivo Coffee Cafe again for the second day in a row to get some work done.

The Lakefront location of this cafe is in the historic Milwaukee River Flushing Station – a building that has been around since 1888.

It is definitely a building to marvel at with its exposed brick, tall ceilings, and unique design features, not to mention its location right on Lake Michigan.

I’m a sucker for interesting design and architecture and I’ll drive the extra 20 minutes for that aspect of the Colectivo Cafe alone. Continue reading
