From Tone Body to Muscle Man

I always found it hard to build muscle. I would occasionally lift weights and use weight machines the gym, but all it really did was make me tone. I tried some workout programs, but they were mostly packed with cardio workouts and aimed more at people who were looking to lose weight. I wasn’t fat or needed to shed pounds. In fact, I was particularly thin. I just wanted to add muscle to my frame. It wasn’t until I started doing the Body Beast schedule that I was able to get the results that I wanted for so long.

The schedule was a lot of hard work, but that was expected. Continue reading

As her boyfriend, it was my mission to find the clubs and bring the thief to justice.

Jooeun’s clubs had her name engraved in them with Korean symbols. Continue reading

The Perfect Gift for Hani

I love my Hani so much. She is the epitome of beauty. I knew that I was truely blessed since the day that I met her. She has always been there when I needed her. Even in my darkest moments, she always manages to put a smile on my face. Last week was Hani’s birthday. I wanted this birthday to be very special for her. My goal was to show her how much I appreciated her love and support. I decided to a pair of earrings with amethyst gemstones. Amethyst is her birthstone. I knew that she would like them.

Hani and I have known each other since we were kids. We started off as very good friends. I remember the first day I met her. I was new to our school. I was nervous, but Hani made me feel so welcome. We became like siblings. Continue reading

A Safer Approach to Breast Enhacement

Wanting to look your best is natural and there are many products and procedures available to women to accomplish this. The major problem with this tends to be not just the cost of these products, but the inherent danger that many of them pose as well. When thinking about an procedure such as a breast enlargement surgery, too few think about the risks involved. It is a major surgery and it comes with dangers, and some have suffered because of major complications. It is much safer and wise to use natural remedies such as a breast enhancement supplement and cream to get natural results that pose no risk to your health.

Many women want their breasts to look as good as possible. In many ways, it is a confidence builder and for some, it is important enough that they are willing to have surgery to enhance or further shape their breasts to get them looking exact how they want. Continue reading

Understanding the Benefits of Naturaful

One of the things that I liked best about the Naturaful review that I had read was that it was not only able to enhance breasts but the cream also helps to make them firm as well. I had heard that some people who want to have bigger breasts are able to achieve that, but that the end result is not as firm as what they had hoped to have. While I did want to have a bigger bust, I certainly did not want a flabby one. I would have much rather just kept what little I did have.

I liked other things about the review I read on Naturaful too. I am the type of person who always wants to read reviews on something I have not tried before, whether it is perfume, food, a book, or something like a breast enhancement cream. Continue reading

Tesla Cars Are Smart to Use Aluminum

Dad bought a Tesla and while we were doing research on the car we saw something about extrusion of aluminum. Aluminum, as well know, is an extremely lightweight metal used in a wide range of goods and manufacturing materials. You use it to wrap food. I knew they used it in cars because I’ve had vehicles with parts made from aluminum, but I didn’t realize Tesla was really using the stuff. It makes sense considering you’re trying to make a car that doesn’t run on fossil fuels. Electricity can only move so much weight and it doesn’t do nearly as well as gasoline.

When he got the car we went out to take a look at it and it’s amazing how much of it is made out of extruded aluminum. It’s amazing technology has advanced enough where you can use it in so many ways in a vehicle. I was a bit worried about a car crash and whether aluminum is durable enough to withstand a severe impact. Continue reading

Moving to Australia Completes My Dreams

Australia is a beautiful country. I know this because I call it home, but I was not born here. The first time I came here was with my parents when I was just around seven years old. It left quite the impact on me even then though, and I knew that I wanted to return again. I got that second chance when I was 14 years old, and then again three more times before I was 20. I did a search after my eighth trip there on immigration Australia because I wanted to see how hard, or easy, it would be to move there for good. Continue reading

Getting Lyrics to Songs is Cool

When my friend first told me about the Tubidy Mp3 download site, I thought that it was going to be like other free Mp3 sites I have seen before. I love music, so it is not abnormal for me to look for music where ever I can. However, to find a really good Mp3 site takes a bit of luck because while there are some really good ones online, there are many more that are not. I decided to look at the site that he told me about though, and I am so glad that not only did he tell me but that I also decided to look. Continue reading

Use Rubber Underlayment for Floor Soundproofing

When installing a floating or laminate floor over concrete, a good rubber underlayment is very helpful to stop noise. This underlayment can be used with different types of floors. If you are renovating a multistory structure, especially an apartment complex, you want this underlayment installed to stop tenant complaints of footsteps being heard in the apartments above. This will dampen the sounds of pets, noisy kids and even vacuum cleaners, TVs and fish tank pumps. It goes down below the finished flooring layer.

Soundproofing is not done using lightweight foam. It is done using mass. The weight of rubber dampens sound. Foam underlayments can help prevent squeaking of the flooring against the subfloor, but rubber underlayment helps stop the noise of impacts, footfalls and everything else. Continue reading

I Was Pretty Surprised by the Nice Turn That My Life Had Made

It was Halloween night when the power in my home went out. My husband was no longer alive and I was in our big home that we have lived in together for two decades together, and that still didn’t stop my fears when all the lights went out. People were knocking on my door because they were out trick or treating, and it made me nervous in the dark. I called an electrician in Passaic County NJ to come help the very next day. I did not want to go through another night alone in the house with not being able to see. Continue reading

It Almost Fell on My Kids While They Were Playing!

We had a really big storm a few weeks ago, and it rocked the trees around our little house pretty bad. One of them looked a bit rough afterwards, but hubby assured me it would be okay and it was still pretty stable. He ended up being horribly wrong, but thankfully I was paying attention. The kids were playing on the trampoline and I saw the tree about to fall over so I yelled for them to get down. I called a tree service in Nassau County to come and remove the tree from our property.

While we were waiting for the tree guy to come the largest tree branch at the top of the tree came free and crashed onto the side of the trampoline. Luckily we have an enclosure on it and it bounced off of the mesh siding. I’m really glad my kids weren’t on that trampoline when it happened, and I’m really glad it didn’t ruin the trampoline in any way.

My kids love to play on their trampoline, by themselves, and with the neighbor children. They do flips and see how high they can jump. Continue reading

I Needed My Air Conditioning Fixed Fast!

Sometimes I think I have the worst luck in the world. Even though everything always seems to work out, it still stinks that things have to happen in the first place. For instance, my husband had to go on a business trip where he would be gone the entire week. On his second day away, I ended up having to find a company that does HVAC services in Manhattan, NY because our central air went out. Not only did it go out while my husband was not home to take care of it, but it also went out when we were having a major heatwave. See what I mean about bad luck?

Anyway, I knew that I had to take care of the air conditioning before we had to resort to staying in a hotel room just to be comfortable. The heat was just too brutal to even think of staying there without air. I went online and started looking at different companies that service the area that I am in. I thought that I would only have to sort through a handful of HVAC companies, but there were so many!

I decided to change the way I was looking. Continue reading

I Wanted a Good Moving Company

It is not easy to trust someone with things that you have worked the majority of your life for. It’s possible that I may be an exception though, because I really do have a hard time trusting people I don’t know. Unfortunately, I could not move everything on my own, so I knew that I would need to hire Singapore movers to help me with the bulkier and heavier items like my appliances and furniture. I wanted to hire only the very best because this was everything that I owned. I know that most movers are insured, but I would rather just have the things that I had prior to the move get to my new home undamaged.

I figured I might as well get it over with, so I went online and started looking at different moving companies. I looked only at the ones that are insured, because I knew that accidents happen. Continue reading

Making Decisions is Not Hard for Me to Do at All

I remember being so young when my mom’s magazine caught my attention. Even though I was just six years old, I could not wait until the mailman came each day because I wanted to see if she received any new magazines that I could look through so that I could look at all the different clothing. Now that I’m of college age, I’ve decided to go to design school in Singapore to get a degree in what I love doing best. I count myself as very lucky to know so early on in life what I want to do career-wise.

Both of my parents said that they struggled early on with what they wanted to do for the rest of their lives with work. Our culture finds it very important to work hard and make decisions early when it comes to what you will be doing for the rest of your life. Both of them told me that they felt pressured to choose something, even though they did not know what they wanted to choose. Continue reading

Supplements That Help My Body Recover Faster

I went to the gym every day for nearly two months with the hopes of building my muscles. While there was some change, it was nothing that was really noticeable. I was tired and really frustrated with my progress, so I went online to get some tips on how to speed up the process. That is where I read about the best supplements for muscle recovery, something I had been neglecting. I thought that it was okay to just allow my muscles to recover on their own, but I realized that is where I was making my mistake.

I found a site that listed the best six supplements to recover from the tears in my muscles, and it has made all the difference in the world to me. I was able to read why supplements make it easier for the body to recover, and why it needs two different types of proteins to fully recover. The two types are whey and casein. Continue reading

How Do You Stop This Sort of Thing?

I learned about this from a girl that I go to school with. Apparently she overheard her parents talking about it and realized that they had installed something on her phone called kik spy. This is a lot more common than you would think. Obviously a lot of parents are really keen to make sure their kids are not doing stuff that they should not do. In this case the girl has a boyfriend and the father hates this guy. Frankly I do not blame him all that much, but that is not really germane to this topic. I did some research and I realized very rapidly that this sort of thing is really rampant in our society. It is not just Kik, there are programs which let you spy on all of the similar apps used for chat and other forms of communication. Continue reading

We Fell in Love with Our New Home

My husband and I used to love driving around on a weekend, looking at properties that were for sale. That was when we were first married though and had a lot of free time on our hands. As he climbed the ladder at his job, those weekends got fewer and farther between until they were the exception rather than the rule. When we decided to buy a house, it made me smile to remember those days, but I knew that I would need to look at a modern real estate option instead.

I went online and did a search for real estate properties in our area, and I was able to find quite a few that I really liked. Continue reading

Protecting an Old Gun from Taking Any More Field Abuse

I bought a used shotgun for hunting. It has seen some wear over the years, but it is still in great mechanical shape. I was going to refinish it with camo paint and use it for a bird gun. I decided that the wear and tear on the finish had its own history that should be preserved. I decided to get a camo rifle cover instead. They just slip on over the barrel and stock. You can take them off again when you come in out of the field. A camo kit also protects the gun. They are made of neoprene that protects against the weather, scrapes and bumps. Neoprene has an outer covering and a cushioned core. The outer cover I chose is in a camo pattern that is suitable for our area. We have lots of deciduous trees and a few pines.

That old shotgun has now made many trips to the field with me. Continue reading

Ingenuity Born out of Boredom

My friends and I were watching a STAAD training DVD one afternoon when the power went out. We were all at one of my friend’s home, and this house doesn’t have a generator, so there was no way to continue watching the DVD until the power came back on. We were waiting around for something to happen and then I came up with an idea. I told my friends to get some materials and let us start a project to complete before the power comes back on. My friends agreed and we started looking for the materials, using our phones as flashlights.

We found the materials and started putting them together to make a human powered generator. The generator takes the input of 5 people to produce just enough power to run a DVD player and a television. We hooked the generator up to the television and the DVD player and started moving our arms and legs like we were running a marathon. Continue reading
