How to Convert Your CrossFit Shoes to Barefoot Shoes

I’ve been wearing Reebok Nanos 2, 4, 6, and 8. I also started wearing Metcon 2’s recently. I’ve used my shoes for workouts. I’ve also used my shoes for walking around and going out.

Getting Hooked on Crack Pie

This review will likely get me in trouble. My friend from the gym transformed into a professional chef a few months ago.

I saw pasta dishes made with a... Read more

PARKING YOUR CAR IN A PRIVATE SUBDIVISION

Barangay officers entered our village and attempted to give me a ticket and get my car towed.

Franken Plates Available at Barbel Medic

I like buying pre-owned stuff for the novelty. The fact that the item belonged to a previous owner makes me feel that the item has more character. I’m a little superstitious.

CARNIVORE IS THE ULTIMATE MINIMALIST DIET

Carnivore is the ultimate minimalist diet. I previously explored a plant heavy diet. The first few meals I learned to put together at home are salads, and some form of vegan chilli.
