So, in the spirit of love and generosity, I’m giving away The Basic Six – IamClintFit Guide. That’s right, giving it away, as in for free!

Why?

For a few of reasons…

  1. The month of May is the month of the year that I work hardest for.
  2. The month of May is when the weather starts to really turn around here in New England, and more people start to get physically active. So I want to give away this incredible guide to help people get off to the right start.
  3. The month of May hosts the holiday for all mothers and being a husband and a father, I understand how much work mother’s put in all year round. This is an opportunity for us men to give a wonderful guide to any moms who would like to get started and be more fit. It also is an opportunity for me to help any of you moms who would like to begin your fitness journey and don’t know where to start.

 

So, if you know of anyone who’d be interested in a copy of their own copy of
The Basic Six – IamClintFit Guide, share the link below and send them this way!

Disappear

via Daily Prompt: Disappear

Have you ever wanted to just disappear? Most people can say “yes” to this. For me, it’s not a constant feeling of wanting to run away, but something you just need some alone time. And as a parent, sometimes you just don’t get that opportunity (some of you know exactly what I mean).

Being a parent means you are on call every single second of every single day, even on your “days off” (as if those exist). Doing the dishes means your little one wants to come play with the water or your older ones have some dirty dishes to donate to the sink. Folding the clothes means your little one wants to “make a nest and lay in them” or your older one has some more clothes to wash, dry and fold. And going to the bathroom means your little one is coming with you, period. It’s simply a life of sharing at all times.

Is this a bad thing? Not at all. In fact, it’s a beautiful thing, and I feel very blessed to have my family. However, I have to be honest, every now and then I just want some uninterrupted time to do what I love to do or to do absolutely nothing. My wife and I reminisce of the days we used to go hiking, or go for a really good workout, and then go get some food and just enjoy the day. We still go hiking, try to workout, go get food and enjoy the day… the circumstances have just shifted a bit. Hiking means find a small hill near a park near a pizza shop that’s near home. “See, SAME SAME!” (as my 3 year old son would say).

I love my family and I wouldn’t change anything about us. As they say, “You can’t have joy without pain” and “Sunny days wouldn’t feel special without rain”, I appreciate my alone time much more when I think of how I felt the year before I met my wife. I had just turned 30 and I had this sense that it was time for a family. Now that I have one, I love my little chances of solitude, but love being with them even more.

Thanks for reading.

Stay Strong,

Visiting Madison, WI

Hey Guys,

As always, thanks for reading.
If you’re not already, be sure to subscribe to my blog and follow me on social media.

 

If you’re following me on social media, you’ll have already seen my posts about my trip to Madison, WI. But if you haven’t, let me tell you, it’s been a fun and memorable week out here with my wife. We got to celebrate our anniversary, her birthday, and go out on dates every night. If you’re a parent of young children like we are, you know that it’s always that easy to go out on a date with your spouse. This was a great this was a great opportunity for us to spend some quality time together without feeling pressed for time.

Why Madison? My wife had to come out here for an Epic class, and we decided to have me tag along so we could spend some time together. Big thank you to Grandma for staying home with the kids for the week.

We lucked out big time with the weather because let me tell you… IT. WAS. BEAUTIFUL!! We stayed at the Concourse hotel right in downtown Madison. No offense to the hotel, but it’s not the hotel that makes staying there great, it’s the location. Being in downtown Madison is incredible. You can walk right out the door to the hotel to countless restaurants, the Capital Building, the lake, Comedy on State – comedy club where we saw Louis Katz (Instagram) and Gary Gulman (Instagram) and we got to meet Gary too,  we rented bikes and rode around Madison, and we got to see Avengers: Infinity Wars.

Walking downtown was wonderful. State street is full of shops, restaurants, trendy people, and will take you right to the University of Wisconsin. We didn’t go to the graduation ceremony, but we got to see a ton of graduates out with their families on Thursday evening, still in their caps and gowns, celebrating their hard academic work. Congrats to the 2018 graduates of UW!

For pictures and videos of the trip visit my Instagram and Facebook page.

Here’s a list of the places we went to in Madison, WI:

The Short Stack Eatery was the last place we went to for breakfast before leaving to the airport. I absolutely loved it. I had a delicious breakfast burrito and my wife got eggs Benedict. They make their eggs benedict with a biscuit instead of an English muffin, which was a delightful surprise. And their 3-cheese grits are as scrumptious as they come. out of all the places we went, which none were a disappointment, Short Stack Eatery and Ian’s Pizza were my favorite for food. The Old Fashioned has the best cheese curds, but be prepared, this is not a healthy choice by any means! Save it for vacation mode and cheat days (but don’t miss the opportunity to try them, they’re so good!).

With the college-town feel, the big city feel, the excellent weather, and the time to spend with my wife, this trip was an absolute treat. I’m very happy I came out with my wife, even though we missed our kids like crazy.

I recommend Madison, WI for anyone looking for another U.S. city to visit.

If you have any cities to recommend, be sure to comment and leave your suggestions.
