A young couple focused on great workouts and feasting well -- all on a low budget (did we mention we're total nerds, too)!

Field Day 2016 in Pictures

If some of you remember, every year, my family goes camping. We do this for “Field Day“–a Ham Radio contest to try to get as many contacts on the radio as possible (cool, right?). Each year has its own experiences, but it’s always nice to get out into the wilderness. Enjoy!

Optimum Nutrition Protein Water

Back in January, we (probably) introduced you to Trusource and had some happy giveaway winners. [Do you want more giveaways?!] If you remember, we were blown away by their protein water product. Fast forward a few months and we find out that Optimum Nutrition (arguably our favorite supplement company) has their own protein water. What do we have to do? Obviously, we had to try it and let me just say that we were NOT disappointed. In fact, we even fought over it!

Cures For a Few Sleep Problems

If there’s one problem in America, it’s a serious sleep problem! How many people have you talked to just in one day that complain about a bad night’s sleep or complain that they’re tired? I feel like it’s rampant, especially in Los Angeles and other big cities. It can be little things to a busy mind that won’t quit or big things like insomnia. Any little or big thing can seriously detract from your sleep which then detracts from your life in its entirety! Lack of sleep can cause irritability which can cause stress in your relationships which can cause major unhappiness. Lack of sleep can be a root problem of many other seemingly larger problems. I’m sharing this graphic on behalf of Casper, an online company that sells a new latex foam mattress, to give you some simple cures to frustrating sleep problems.

Remixed PowerBar: Energy for Athletes

We bring you exciting news of a new PowerBar product for athletes! Especially during these hot-as-dog summer months, athletes need fuel for endurance. For persevering through the heat and exhaustion to keep on keepin’ on.

Healthy Energy to Power You Through the Summer

If the name, Kaeng Raeng, sounds familiar, it’s because we did an awesome cleanse with them (plus a giveaway) back in 2014. This was a hit with us and with you guys! We’re here to tell you about another great product coming from this great company. What I love the most about Kaeng Raeng is that they’re all about the natural. Natural ingredients, natural lifestyle, natural health. They don’t give you a magic pill to lose all your fat. These are healthy ingredients to spur a healthy lifestyle–it’s as simple as that. Now, let’s get to the new product–the Daily Green Energy.

Warcraft: Movie Review

A Blizzard swept across the dry landscape of gaming in 1994 as a group of orcs from the land of Draenor entered the realm of Azeroth and went to war against the humans living there. While many won’t remember the plot of one of the first real-time strategy games (before the boom of the RTS launches in the 90s), it would be hard to forget the iconic birds-eye view. Nostalgic flashes come and go throughout the 123 minute, $160 million dollar pre-Summer blockbuster to capture the attention of fans to the series, but how does the movie fare without its relationship to the video game it’s based off of? Let’s discuss it all.

A Book to Inspire You: Big Magic

I forget where I first heard of Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, but I’m very grateful to that unknown source. I’ve been writing my whole life–I’m no master, but I have always enjoyed creating stories. It’s a hobby of mine I hope to focus on now that the big wedding is done and that I have a little bit more time on my hands. But writing, or being creative in general, isn’t as easy as putting pen to paper (or brush to canvas or hands to flowers)–though, technically that’s what you need. Sometimes, you need a little bit of inspiration. This book more than does that.

Do Something That Scares You Every Day

In this day and age, we sometimes cower away from the unexpected, unknown, and scary. This is partly due to social pressure, anxiety, and worrying about what others may think of you. This is also due to our fear of failure which can permeate many areas of our life. This pushes us away from trying new things, taking a leap of faith, or following our dreams. I’d say that those three things are huge in a successful, happy life. If you’re not ready to go jump off a building right now or start writing your screenplay, that’s okay. Start with something small. Do something that scares you every day.
