The Urge to Treat

DK’s Donuts (in Los Angeles) is a dangerous place, but I’m sure you have something similar near you. Take a few seconds to scroll down and check the pictures out. At that point, you have a few choices. Keep reading, go out and get a sweet treat, or close this window out and try to purge the thought of delicious food from your short-term memory. Either way, we’re tempted every day by various things that make us want to break away from what we feel is the right thing to do.

Lead the Whey

Your trainer told you to take protein because it’s going to help you grow big and strong, right? They told you it will help your muscles grow and repair after the tough workouts that they drag you through a few times a week, right? While I’m not telling you to (or to not) listen to your ‘trainer,’ it’s almost inevitable that you’re going to try to find a way to add more protein to your diet. As Instagram and social media gets more popular, the fitness (and supplement) industries grow at a rapid rate. For many, this change in lifestyle can be challenging and for others, the maintenance of this way of living can be equally or more challenging.

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.

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.
