When life kicks you in the mouth

My wife went down with the stomach bug last night. Which isn't ideal, because as many of you know we're expecting our third baby any day now.

She's feeling better now, but of course I caught whatever it was this morning, hence the late email (sparing you the details but suffice to say this is the first time I've been able to focus my eyes today)

I had a thousand things I wanted to do today. Record two podcasts. Call inside the fatherize community. Create some multi-platform contnet. And write this email.

This email is all that's going to get done.

It is a good reminder though: sometimes life will just kick you in the mouth (and it's certainly capable of much more ferocious kicks than we're receiving right now).

And it's also a good reminder that nothing is more important than your health.

What's the old saying? A healthy man wants a million things. A sick man wants just one. That slaps. Would make a good tweet. Maybe I'll post it sometime.

So a reminder for myself and for anybody reading this: you can only be superman if you're healthy. And if you try to be superman at the expense of your health, you aren't the only one who suffers.

peace and love

I saw a great concept the other day on instagram Sit your kids down and ask them to finish this sentence: "I hate it when my dad _________." Make the setting relaxed and comfortable. Maybe even do it while you're out on a walk or something...that usually leads to more free-flowing conversations with kids. Your kids answers will be pretty illuminating. My guess is most of our kids would probably say something like: "I hate it when my dad yells." "I hate it when my dad isn't around." "I hate it...

By now everybody has heard about the hero dad who tragically passed away at the Trump rally on Saturday. When I first heard the news about Corey Comperatore, I went back and forth on whether I should post about him. On the one hand, I didn't want it to seem like I was being opportunistic. I didn't want it to look like I was trying to engagement-farm off of this man's sacrifice. But on the other hand, I know many people look to me to provide my take when fatherhood is presented so starkly in...

I posted this yesterday and people lost their minds: But most of those people misunderstood it. People frequently ask me about my diet.I say I try to stay in a slight caloric deficit, and I try to eat between 150-200g of protein per day. If I do those 2 things consistently, I leave a ton of room for flexibility and stay at my target weight with little effort. If that's what you want to do, that's why this chart is so helpful. It isn't saying "these protein sources are BAD" ... It's saying...
