Your body needs protein to build lean muscle, and you need lean muscle for burning fat. Eating enough protein is one of the keys to maintaining a healthy metabolism.

‘Slow day up in Heaven, God?’

Posted by | February 18, 2018 2:40 pm

I’ve probably seen every episode of “Married with Children” at least five times each. Its crude and dark humor appeals to me. One of my favorite episodes involves Al getting some tickets to a highly popular annual basketball game featuring the Harlem Globetrotters. Next door neighbor Marcy forbids her husband, Jefferson, to go, and eventually Peggy, Al’s wife, bugs him enough to where he agrees to take her. In true Peggy Bundy-fashion, she proceeds to aggravate him the entire game. She says just minutes before the buzzer for the first quarter that she has to use the bathroom. She wants… Read the rest

Every single day for the past three-plus months, I have been constantly asking the good Lord for strength and understanding through this… Read the rest
