Being busy and on the go can really put a dent into proper eating habits. With a full work schedule and multiple responsibilities there just does not seem to be enough time to cook proper healthy nutritious meals, especially breakfast, which is the most important meal of the day. Being that I normally schedule my daily training session in the morning before work there is just no time to hit the kitchen to prepare a meal. That is where supplementation comes in. My normal routine now includes an EAS protein shake, fruit, and vitamin pack as soon as I get to my desk at the office.
Now, I must admit being at the age I am now with a little more mileage on my chassis things get a bit harder to maintain. A creak here, a tinge there, and a tuneup sometimes takes longer to perform. Don’t get me wrong, I’m far from being old and broken down at this point, and I can still stay up late and party with the best of them, even though the recovery time the next day takes a little longer! I just can’t help myself as I love to go out and have a good time. Work hard and play hard. Work to live – don’t live to work. Guess you could say I have a bit of the “Peter Pan” syndrome in me. Yeah, I’ll never truly grow up. It’s a blessing and a curse.
Is it just me or am I noticing such a total lack of respect from not just younger kids nowadays, but also grown adults? Now, I don’t want to sound like an old fart complaining about the younger generation, or a self-righteous ass thinking the worst of every grown person around me, but it is really concerning to me what is wrong with people that they can’t even be considerate to each other anymore. I travel a lot and this is not just a NYC thing – it’s everywhere.
I don’t get people nowadays. All you hear is how everyone is worried about the economy, rising taxes, huge bills to pay, job worries, and assorted financial problems. Yet, when it comes to saving money or being frugal many of these same people have no clue or actually refuse to be proactive in their financial lives. They go paycheck to paycheck and spend frivolously with no regards to putting much if anything away. Hey, I’m no Donald Trump and don’t own much, but over the years I squirreled away enough to hold me and my fiancée over in case of hard times.
