Crock pot French Dip: 4 pounds of some type of roast meat (rump roast, chuck roast, etc!) 1 can (10.5 oz) beef broth 1 can (10.5 oz) french onion soup 1 bottle or can (12 oz) beer (or equal amount of water or broth) french rolls or other crusty rolls sliced cheese (we love Swiss or Provolone with these!) Place your roast in the crockpot and pour the broth, french onion soup and beer on top. Cover and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours. About 30 minutes before eating, take out the meat and shred. Place meat back into the juices and stir to flavor all the meat. Split your rolls and top with sliced cheese. Bake at 200 degrees for about 10 minutes or until rolls are nice and toasty. Top rolls with shredded meat and add a cup of the au jus (yummy meat juices) on the side to dip your sandwich in.
1. Your bed is for SLEEP, not for lounging and relaxing. Buy a couch. Your body will have a better idea of what to do next time it lays down. 2. Muscle burns fat (calories in general) to maintain, so bulk up. 3. Broke a rule? Do 10 pushups. Next time you break it, do 20. Then 30, and so on. Your habits should shape up pretty quickly. 4. People are attractive because they can take care of themselves, which gives insight on how they will take care of you in a relationship. 5. I don’t give a fuck, get on your face and do pushups until you can’t anymore. Right now, or get off my blog. 6. Raw fruit and potatoes virtually have no fat content. 7. The way to healthiness is not all formulas and math. Its a gym class too. 8. Next time you buy food from somewhere, look at the figures of people around you that are also ordering, and what they’re ordering. 9. Don’t worry what people say about “be yourself” its what got you to where you are in the first place. Idolize after somebody that is a well rounded person, and follow in their footsteps until you’re in the direction you want to go. Work smarter, not harder. 10. Eat whole eggs. The yolk too. Why? Dietary cholesterol is NOT blood cholesterol. Whole eggs are satisfying, so your hungry ass eats less in the long run. 11. In addition, relying on medication when you’re sick will get your immune system in a habit of weakness. Every time your sick, your body will expect drugs to assist it. Does not apply to serious medical conditions, but don’t dive for the Tylenol when you catch a cold. 12. As a lesser of two evils, Red Bull is the only energy drink I know that does not list High Fructose Corn Syrup in the ingredients. Take in moderation if at all , it is also an expensive drink. I say this because some people are not quite yet ready to cut out large habits 13. Don’t take one photo of yourself and then check it, take about 10 in a row, then pick the best one. Your search for a new default will be much easier. 14. I’m not saying opt for small, but definitely go medium instead of large. 15. That 32 pack of water bottles should be gone in as little as a week and a half. That’s right, 4 bottles a day is a good average. 16. Divide your weight in half. The number you get is how many ounces of water you should be drinking daily. The common Poland Spring bottle is 16.9 oz. 17. Fix the Monday blues by waking up early on Sunday. You’re wide awake for around 16 hours, compensate according to your bedtime on Sunday night so you’re tired enough to sleep. (Suffer now or suffer later) 18. Create the illusion that you are invincible. The better you feel, the better you will perform. 19. Force yourself to like anything that you HAVE to do. There’s no use resisting. 20. Angry? Volume up, hand wraps on. 21. Anorexia is NOT sexy. Neither is starving yourself. PLEASE ladies, don’t eat “less” just eat right. 22. Get emotional, it can release an extreme adrenaline burst while youre doing cardio. Watch the intensity increase 3 fold. 23. Focus on other muscle groups, your pushups wont go on very long with steel triceps and a weak core. 24. Get pumped. 25. Take your damn vitamins, its so painless there is no excuse for laziness. 26. Start with the basics. You can’t go wrong with brushing your teeth and applying acne cream. Everyone likes fresh breath and a clean face ! Not to mention it’s effortless. 27. The workout says to do 25? Do one more for good measure. 28. Stop wasting your god given body on anything but hard work. You wont live forever, but the things you do with your life can. 29. Putting your hand on your face is a large cause of acne. If you have to rest your head, do it on your knuckles. 30. We are given the gift of technology, use it ! See what works for others, and try new things. 31. Buy an iPod. 32. There are funner ways to exercise. Rather than boring bike rides, join a BMX league or race your own times on a black diamond trail. Instead of a stroll around the block, participate in a fundraising walk or go hiking. 33. Life is a game you can not beat, but you can set the highest score. 34. Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without one. 35. Michael Jordan missed over 9000 shots and lost almost 300 games. The best do fall, but they always get up. 36. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. And you’re afraid of failure? 37. Have a hot shower and a good breakfast ready so you want to get out of bed. It also helps if you have someone you want to text the moment you wake up :) Yes, guys, that goes for us too. 38. Only fools are satisfied. 39. Buy some new athletic wear, you will feel energized and eager to try it out. 40. Weather is not an excuse. In fact, a change of pattern may be good for you. 41. Escape your comfort zone, you will find a new one. 42. An apple can wake you up just as efficiently as coffee can. 43. DO NOT SKIP BREAKFAST, because you will wind up eating a larger lunch in return and become lazy. 44. Find a job that requires you to be fit. Serving in the military, becoming a lifeguard, or finding a construction job are all good choices. 45. Open your windows, fresh air in, stale air and dust out. Don’t like the cold? Put on a jacket. 46. Your muscles need oxygen, breathe deeply when exercising, concentrate on it. 47. Have a daily goal, a weekly goal, AND a monthly goal. 48. Stop complaining. 49. No pain, no gain. 50. Save motivational speeches to your iPod and play them during your workout. There are a fair amount on Youtube, and with a little research you too can find out how to download them.
