At one point it was hard work. There was a time when every dollar I spent was a dollar I didn't have. A time when good food consisted of a corn dog from the local 7-11. A time when the closest thing I had to a stereo was two car alarms going off on both sides of my studio apartment.

But I finally made it. I hit the big time. My worries began to consist of whether or not to take the Yacht out in the late afternoon. Whether or not to drive the Lamborghini Diablo to the mall or slum it in the Cadillac Escalade. And whether or not my wife is going to be ogled by college kids while my sons drive through the streets in their custom made AMV's.

I was at the point where I tipped 20's to baristas just to make my wallet lighter. I bet thousands at the races on the horse with the limp Tony Snell Bucks Jersey , just to laugh hysterically as everyone stared at the only guy brave enough to cheer for the horse that came in dead last.

I had nothing I didn't own, nothing I couldn't buy. And, once that happened, nothing that could make me happy. Without value, my possessions became meaningless. It was more painful to look at them than it was to purchase them. I gave away most of my belongings to friends and family Thon Maker Bucks Jersey , and sold the rest to whoever asked me for them.

With my family (always supportive) in tow, I searched for that little bit of meaning I had lost. Back before I had money, I used to cherish the corn dogs that constituted a "healthy" meal. Now a bite of even the most expensive Italian cuisine was meaningless.

And so, with nothing left to buy, I decided to take to traveling. I thought that leaving my surroundings and enjoying a change in environment would help my regain my soul Ray Allen Bucks Jersey , but I found that the appeal of most vacations spots was nothing but more materialism. France was nothing if you could not enjoy the food. Asia had its trinkets that made it special, and that specialness was lost on me. Even the landmarks in Italy seemed like nothing more than large structures. I owned large structures. I did not need to see large structures.

It appeared that traveling was ineffective. My stress was beginning to rub off on my family, as they began to stay inside, rarely finding any of their own joys in our traveling adventures. It looked like this would be the way I would spend the rest of my life.

That is, until I found Maui.

When I stepped off the plane and onto Maui's soft Oscar Robertson Bucks Jersey , warm sand, I could tell this place was different. It seemed that even the sun was pleased to be there. The scent of the air was as wonderful as its beauty, and the wind was as calm as its inhabitants.

Although we had several suitcases full of clothing, it appeared that all the clothes we needed could have fit into a single backpack. A pair of shorts, sandals Mirza Teletovic Bucks Jersey , and the occasional shirt were all I needed to enjoy the Hawaiian sun. My wife found herself wearing nothing but a bikini and a skirt, even in the evening. It was as though materialism was inexistent, because in Maui, less was more.

We stayed at an amazing hotel in Wailea, but we could have slept outside and been equally as comfortable. The air was crisp and comforting no matter what the hour Matthew Dellavedova Bucks Jersey , and even my kids found themselves up all hours of the night, because the only difference between night and day was a light blanket of darkness.

In Maui, I finally felt renewed. Material goods were not only unnecessary, they were a nuisance. I slept well for the first time in years thanks to the soothing comfort of the ocean waves. In Maui, I managed to recapture the appreciation for what I had - a great family Malcolm Brogdon Bucks Jersey , a great life, and the ability to enjoy my surroundings.

My family and I canceled our return trip for almost a month before we decided it was time to head back. But I guarantee we will be going back soon. Though I won't guarantee we will make the return trip.

In the world of slimming down there are lots of misconceptions thrown around, some more ridiculous than others. The myths are not true of course, so by listening to them you can limit your progress greatly. In the following post we’ll be taking a look at some of these misconceptions.

When you do physical exercise what you take in doesn’t matter. That is actually a phony statement. Whilst exercise is definitely very important to weight loss Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Bucks Jersey , so is your diet. In the event you continue to eat too much unhealthy foods then the exercising you do will not be worth it. You need to find a happy medium with regards to what you consume and how much exercise you are getting.

You will slim down quicker by avoiding carbohydrates. This is yet another myth. You can take in anything you want so long as it is done in moderation. Of course moderation will be the key and you must think about the number of calories you eat every single day. This is very simple math, when you consume less calories than you will be able to burn them off faster, however if you actually eat more calories than you burn you will end up gaining weight. If you cut out all your carbs the only thing you will be eating is various meats and eggs, and you will not be getting the nutrition you need. Attempt to feed on fruit and vegetables as they are low in calories and possess lots of nutrients. Junk foods tends to be very processed and contains many calories, as well as not being very filling.

You need a no fat diet regime. This myth pretty much will go along with the myth previously mentioned. It doesn’t matter where you get your calories from just as long as you.
