We are obsessed with bars. We maintain a spreadsheet that tracks nutrition data, ingredients, and factors like texture and flavor for over 50 bars! What we know for sure is that bars are like jeans. You have to try on MANY pairs to find right one(s) -- yes plural. We have bars for different occasions...tastes...goals.
The key to finding YOUR bar is a willingness to taste. And taste them twice. But before you buy, you can do a little homework to maximize your investment in time and money:
Have you been told that you’re obese or overweight and know that it can’t be right? I have.
Last year, during a routine primary care check-up, one of the clinical assistants measured my height and weight. It was mid-spring, and I was in pretty good shape at the time. In fact, I had just gotten a DEXA scan (It’s a body fat measurement that we will explore later.) as part of a health evaluation. It was a stellar 9%. I was feeling good!
Depending on the destination, vacationing with your kids can be a wonderful memory-making experience or a complete disaster. Any parent who says otherwise bends the truth like magician David Blaine bends the mind.
While certain experiences guarantee kid fun —Disney parks, Hawaii beaches, mountain snow-skiing---the cultural enrichment payoff is minimal. If your 11-year old son believes that Epcot is a Chinese city, it might be a sign to get him a passport and go someplace far…very far.
Here we are again! Another year gone by. So that means another Athletic-Minded Traveler Gift Guide. These are products that caught our eye this year, and we especially love recommending stocking stuffers! Note, we don't get any SWAG or payment for recommending the products :) We just like to share what we like.
In our line of work, activity is business. In our line of work, activity is FUN. In our line of work, activity means health, camaraderie, and memory making.
We "do" versus "watch". We get out and move. And our moves vary as a team. This weekend was a perfect example.
Most Sin City travelers have little interest roaming off the Strip, and who can blame them? Massive hotels, scream-worthy amusement rides, titillating shows/nightclubs and wallet-busting shopping make Las Vegas Blvd a one-of-a-kind experience.
** Editor's Update 2018: Specialized now only makes the "Riprock" in the 16" size. We are fans of this company's bicycles and while our experieince was with the "Hotrock", we trust that the 16" Riprock is equally good ($240).
