The last thing I notice in the bathroom are the scales. That's not to say I'm overweight either. I'm just a bit on the chunky side.

Avalanche Ski Training – Japan here we come

Avalanche Ski TrainingIt’s that time of year where we start planning for our summer holidays. Where to go? What to do? Is it just our family or are we going to go somewhere with friends or other family members? After toing and froing for some time, we’ve agreed (shock horror from my wife) to go skiing and head to Japan. (Yes – we’re in the southern hemisphere folks.)

Now, I know it is months away, but yes, these thing take time and planning – well – for my wife anyway! I go to work and earn the money – she can organise the finer details Right!

But after skiing in Thredbo two years ago, the memory of the pain I felt starts to kick in. The sore legs, aching thighs, the bad back and the fatigue at the end of each day.  I am determined that my growing years of age will not hinder my fine performance on the slopes.  I want to be there in the terrain park with the younger folk racing through the half pipe and sliding on the rails (maybe!). So what it comes down to is that I’ve got to do something about my fitness and get ready for the slopes.

Stop Snoring Now. Cure sleep apnea. Natural remedies to stop snoring.I was often woken during the night with my wife screaming this at me.

I’ve been snoring since I was a kid. It bothered me on my journey to manhood. Women hate men who snore. If I was lucky enough to get a girl home, I then found it difficult to get past the one night stand stage because I was told my snoring was unbearable. (It definitely wasn’t because I was no good in bed, didn’t satisfy her or some other negative factor. Come on - I’m a great guy.)  I hate to admit it, but I do snore!

BUT. I have finally cured my snoring problem. And you would never believe how I cured it. It was so easy. My wife never orders me sleep in the couch or in the spare room anymore.  Are you intrigued to find out how I cured my snoring?
