Rebuilding the Garage After the Fire

A really bad fire broke out in my garage last month. The fire was started by some old rags that were in the garage. While doing some work in the garage, a spark flew onto the rags and they started burning. I rushed to the kitchen to get he fire extinguisher from underneath the sink and ran back to the garage to put out the fire. By the time I got back to the garage, the fire was out of control and I had to call the fire department. I needed garage door repair service because the garage had become so burnt.

The fire department was able to put out the fire before it was able to spread to the rest of the house. Continue reading Rebuilding the Garage After the Fire

Getting Started on the Christmas Shopping

I have just decided to get a head start on my Christmas shopping and the thing I am doing first is to figure out who is on the list and how much I should spend on everyone. The family as a whole is going to probably get a big screen TV for the living room. So I have been checking out the 2015 cyber Monday TV deals to see what the basic cost of what I am seeking is going to be. There are all sorts of things you can get on a new TV obviously. I am not sure which thing is the best for the family. The 3D sets seem like something of a gimmick for example and there does not seem to be a whole lot of things that you can watch in 3D, or at least not too much which I would be that interested in seeing. Most of it seems to be animated kid’s movies and that sort of thing. Some of them might be worth the effort, but I figure that you need a real good reason to wear those glasses.

Getting One of These Kept Me from Giving Up

After working out on and off over the past year or so, I was feeling next to no motivation. I was seeing a difference on the weight scale and my clothes were getting much more loose. I even found myself needing to go to the store to buy new things that fit me better. But I was getting bored. I needed more. After stumbling across a Fitbit Surge review one night, I was surprised to see that I suddenly felt great interest and curiosity again. It is tracks your fitness data like no other tracker does, so I bought one.

Over the years, I had seen other trackers in stores. They were all so very expensive, though. They only held limited interest for me because it is best that I do not spend much time learning about a product that I will never be able to afford. But this particular tracker is budget friendly for what it keeps track of for you. It really does make working out much simpler.

You can sync it up to your smartphone which is important because it allows you to see your stats in real time on your phone and keep track of it an app. I used to have to map out the distance and the routes that I take for my weekly runs, but once I got one of these fantastic gadgets, it does all the work for me. It even tells me how far I have traveled in seconds or minutes.

It used to be that while I was on a run, I would try to mentally tally up how many calories I had burned. I did this to help keep myself interested, but then that was not easy to do and I would quickly give up doing it soon after. But this tracker handles it for me, and it keeps me going.

I Needed a New Fitness Challenge

I am a bit of a fitness nut. I have tried all kinds of workout programs, like Insanity and others designed to push a person to their limits. Sometimes they are hard, but I am always able to master them pretty fast. That is why I needed a challenge, because I was growing bored with my workout regime. A guy at my gym heard me telling a friend this, and he suggested that I look at the Navy Seal workout program online. He had found himself in a similar situation, and he told me that this program is the first one that nearly kicked his butt.

I could tell that he was not just spouting words. He was in great shape, so I knew that if something could do that to him, I wanted to try it too. Continue reading I Needed a New Fitness Challenge
