Not him, but close.

I was dog-sitting over the weekend, which is a nice way of saying that I was spoiling the crap out of someone else’s dog. I’m good like that.

It worked out for both of us; He was able to give me feedback on my cooking (apparently I can throw down in the kitchen) and I was able to give him his medicine.

As some of you know, I run my business out of a local (and very good) Crossfit facility. Once per week I take over all of their classes with an “Underground Strength Day” (so named because of my certification with Zach Even-esh). My objectives on this day are as follows:

build muscle lose fat fastI had a meeting today with one of my consultation clients and as is often the case, our conversation revolved around one of the biggest issues I see when people want to get strong, lean, and be bad mothers.

Today is Memorial Day here in the United States. Every year we observe this holiday to remember and thank our military service members, particularly the fallen, who have allowed us to have the greatest country in the world. It’s through their service and sacrifice that we enjoy the freedoms that most of us take for granted, let alone the ones that we recognize.

Memorial Day has also come to encompass remembering all of our loved ones who’ve passed, regardless of military service. In my mind, this is also important.
