Quarantine Lifestyle: Turn Your Garage into a Garage Gym

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Well, it’s quite apparent in this global era of wellness that we will all be spending more time at home to focus on safety. And with gyms and fitness clubs closed indefinitely, the next best remedies are to exercise outdoors and to convert home spaces into health solutions. So, why not exploit your garage to serve as a wellness center opposed to letting that valuable real estate go to waste storing items that have been idling for years.

I knew from the onset that my garage would not be housing automobiles; the driveway is suitable enough for this task. Quite naturally, I had a head start by constructing mines when I first moved in 14 years ago as an antidote to attain freedom from physical limitations. But don’t despair, here are a few suggestions to get the life-enhancing project underway. [Read more…]

Undefeated Vegan Cyborg Arm Wrestler Kimatni D. Rawlins

5-0 at the Auto Show for the Vegan Cyborg!

The is the look of despair when you’re about to lose an arm wrestling match to a Vegan Cyborg, a Fit Father, and a member of the Eagles’ Bird Gang. I didn’t hold back at the Washington Auto Show against five challengers that were half my age of 44 or much bigger as I heckled them on plant-based health and fitness during consecutive defeats just to prove how superior veganism can be. One dude came back to try the left arm and met the same fate. Muscle endurance is key in such competitions in addition to plant consumption. I’m always open for more and ready to defend my honor if I have any challengers? Dilly Dilly!

Arugula on the Water

Salad

Whether it’s broccoli on the beach or salads at the pool, eating anything green during vacation tanning time or games of Marco Polo seems sacrilegious to both your kids and onlookers. The theme is always a fresh cup of cold cola, burgers and french fries, which is the problem right there. Well, we think otherwise. Traveling is when you should attempt to increase intakes of fruits, veggies and whole grains because the equation is already set up for failure. Fast food and more fast food has been dominating human habit since its invention. So next time your little one asks for soda and a basket of fries, bless them with a glass of water and garden of purity. Trust us they will adapt. Eat clean!

Brown Bag It!

Anytime my wife and the mother of our two daughters heads out on a long flight I hook her up like a Fit Father should. No need in searching for GMO, processed or fast foods in the airport when 20 minutes of home prep can lead to nutritional happiness in the friendly skies. Moreover, on the road you never know what mood your taste buds will be in so I always prepare a few options for Misa to choose from.

Meal 1) TLT = Tempeh, Lettuce and Tomatoe sandwich on whole grain toast. But I use kale instead.

Meal 2) Fresh, steamed, organic kale and onions seasoned with nutritional yeast, garlic and Braggs Liquid Aminos served over quinoa.

Meal 3) Fit Fathers Bowl: Brown Rice, the kale, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes and onions.
