It’s so encouraging to see that some people are getting up off the couch, and doing something active. I must admit that a lot of people are now taking a keen interest in getting back in shape and stay healthy. While there are others who just keep making-up excuses and more excuses.

Two common barriers for people who want to exercise and get in shape are a lack of time and money needed for fitness.

Who has the time to go to the gym, or buy expensive equipment, or take long bike rides?
Well, if those are the things stopping you, you’re in luck.

It takes no equipment to get a great workout and get in shape, and with one or two pieces of simple equipment, you can turn that great workout into a fantastic one, you magnificent beast, you.
And with little or no equipment required for a fantastic workout, you can do it at home, or wherever you are. Even if you’re in solitary confinement – one lesson we can learn from prisoners.

It’s hard not to find time for this type of workout — you can do it while watching TV, for goodness sake!

Using just your bodyweight, you can do a large number of challenging exercises. I suggest starting with bodyweight exercises along with some cardio (i.e. walking, jogging, swimming, etc) and then slowly transitioning to a combination of bodyweight and weight training to get a good balance.

And even if you’re doing a complete weight training program, you can always use bodyweight exercises anytime you can’t make it to the gym.

I’m curious to hear your excuse(s) – why you’re still falling asleep in front the TV when you could be doing something active. Let’s hear ‘em in the comments.

This is adorable, rapper Snoop Dogg on the Martha Stewart Television Show sharing his top 5 Fatherhood tips. Did you Martha face when snoop read tip number #5, looked like she lost her funny bone – Martha! When living in the ghetto fatherhood takes on a whole new meaning.

I like Snoop Dogg tips, and some folks might not agree with me when I say – that these fatherhood tips would work great here in Dominica; particularly, tip #2 “No when to be mean and no when to be a friend” and tip# 3 “Always stay in control“. And just maybe our fathers can regain control their children.

I’m curious to hear your tips on fatherhood and how parents can regain control over their children. Share ’em in the comments.

Over the weekend the US Federal Government agreed to rescue struggling Citigroup Inc, which will absorb potentially hundreds of billions of dollars in losses and injecting fresh capital into the troubled financial giant.

I ask myself, what it is that these financial companies doing wrong or did wrong in the past? But it just goes to show that no matter how big company get, it shouldn’t get bigheaded in its success and forget who butters its bread. But somewhere along the line, a lot of companies forgot the three basics of building a good business that will survive any financial crisis. These three basics are:looking at the future, earning customer trust, and being able to manage the business well.

I can’t stress enough about trust. I believe as long as a customer trusts a company products or services, (s)he is going to come back. But just as success, trust is easy to find – but maintaining that level of trust is the hard part.

The Governmental system in Dominica is a good example where people have trust in the abilities of those who were elected to govern. But it’s not only the governmental system many people have lost trust in, but they’ve lost trust in each other, and that kind of mind-set can bring crisis to any economy.

I’m curious to hear your thoughts on the present global financial crisis.
