Money Matters

Need a cheap date night idea?

  • Game night. This may sound lame or silly, but it can be a lot of fun. Pick a board game you both like (battleship in our house) and just sit down and play it. Don’t judge. You can also play card games if that is your thing.

  • Cook a meal together.

  • Play video games. Ok. So maybe this one is a little lame, but go back and beat some of those old Nintendo games. Or if you are a little more up to speed with your video games, play some madden or something.

  • Sit on your patio or outside. Just sitting in total peace and quiet outside is good for the soul.

  • Watch a movie or your favorite show. I know cliché, but who doesn’t like a good movie or TV show. Get on Netflix and watch some Fuller House;) Make it a little more fun by giving foot rubs during the movie.

  • Go for a walk. Just walk around the neighborhood and talk!

Fitness Focus

Fat vs Muscle

You might think that muscle weighs more than fat.
You might think a pound of feathers weighs less
than a pound of bricks, but a pound is a pound.


Fat and muscle do differ in density. Look at a
pound of muscle and a pound of fat side by side in
this photo: the fat takes up more volume than the
muscle. If your goal is the lean look of muscle, not
the flabby look of fat, feel good about weighing more.


Banish the idea that muscle weighs more and is
therefore bad. In fact, toss out your scale
altogether. Think about how you are feeling, how
your clothes are fitting, and how your movement has
changed. Don't focus on the number on the scale. If
you only did things to make yourself weigh less,
you wouldn't necessarily be healthier.


Stop thinking of muscle mass as the enemy; embrace
it as your ally. Much like the ego, you need a
strong one to overcome an inflated one.
