Speakers Overexposed and Commercialized

A great, right to the point article for other speakers out there – and specially the new speakers who are just getting into the business.

This is a good reminder that as speakers we are the experts on our subjects and we need to keep our content fresh, customized and to never become a “fame junkie”.

Another reason not to eat fast food: McDonald”s Meat

How sad is this?  Things like this just don’t surprise me that much anymore….probably because I don’t eat this processed,ammonia laded food!!

Listen to this “….that the chemical, used in fertilizers, household cleaners and even homemade explosives, was also used to prepare McDonalds’ hamburger meat.”  Crazy stuff we add to all those processed fast food so many of us americans put into our bodies.  Rebel…Rebel, I tell you!  Switch to fruits, vegetables and lean organic meat.


McDonald’s confirms that it’s no longer using ‘pink slime’ chemical in hamburgers

15 Foods That Will Power Your Workouts

via 15 Foods That Will Power Your Workouts

This article really gives you just the basics on the type of food you need to be eating. I know it’s targeted towards working out, exercise and running but these foods are what should be your intake for a healthy diet.  This isn’t complex!  These are all easy to find foods from almost any grocery store in the country and when eaten with a good exercise program you will be seeing results fast!  Plus you’ll feel better and with more energy.

I know what you’re saying though, yuck…veggies and stuff all the time, it’s hard to get used to.  YES, but you will become used to this diet in a few months, ween off all those processed, additive ridden, preservative filled, packaged goods along with all sweet drinks and get ready for a healthy future that you will be accustomed to faster than you think!    One secret to changing your diet to a healthy one is to get rid of all the sweets and junk food in your house….right Now!  So if you don’t have anything unhealthy at home to tempt you it’ll be soooo much easier – works for me!

Starting Triathlon….Need a Bike.

I’ve decided to start competing in Triathlons starting next month at the Pasadena Triathlon at the Rose Bowl. There are so many men competing I figure that I’d better level the playing field!!!

BUT, I need a bike for the 9.3 miles of the course. I don’t want to buy a bike just yet until I decide which direction I’m headed with this.

Any local Riverside or San Bernardino Bike Stores want to sponsor me, let me borrow a bike for the next 2 months of training and to use during the event? You can put your signage on the bike and I’ll wear your name on part of my gear…Any takers?

Pictures from the Skyborne run in Desert Hot Springs last weekend, it was a beautiful day outside and a perfect time of year to be running a half marathon in the desert.  The event was fairly well organized and now I’m looking forward to running in the Palms Springs Marathon.
