Asia and I had a pumpkin carving contest today. I will not say who made the nerdy looking one but it was all I could do to save her... Um, "my" pumpkin after somebody went and made a mess of the initial idea... When she, errr, "I"... Oh, never mind... Laughs...
Whew, well, lots of baseball news and the biggest announcement is Barry Bonds trainer admitting what I posted right here ages ago: The man is using drugs not detected by standard testing. Way to go Barry, that's great news for the little kids out there... Besides that, things are moving along with everything else (our decision to move to Utah near my warehouse and manufacturing plant), but there isn't much to report. We have mostly been laying low. I was asked by plenty of the readers whether or not we would be at the Olympia convention over the weekend. The answer is no. Sorry, I have a pregnant woman on my hands but the good news is, next year... Next year we will be there... With a booth... With celebrity friends from the industry... And plenty of surprises including my wife there to greet her fans... Unless she changes her mind... Speaking of my pregnant wife, a lot of you have asked to see if she has doubled in size and what a woman married to me might look like at nearly 6 months of baby baking... Here you go, the love of my life:

Hey! Our cat "Stinky" is famous now! He made the Cat Fancy website! I know, it's not nutrition related, but come on! It's funny! Click HERE to see! If you want nutrition, here is an awesome new recipe from client John Culotta:
"Grass fed ground beef sauté in a bit of extra virgin olive oil. Add no sugar added tomato sauce, garlic powder, parsley, oregano and cook for about 4 minutes over medium heat. Add frozen chopped spinach and a little parmesan cheese. Cook until spinach is well done. Add seasonings until desired taste. Mix in some Lemons Oil after its done and enjoy!!!! I made this tonight using 2 1/2 lbs of grass fed meat, and it all GONE!!! My son and daughter LOVED it!!!"
John also asked what I thought of a particular colon cleansing herbal product and the answer was simple. Do not let those herbal cleanses fool you into thinking that they offer all it takes to kill parasites. You see, the thing is, you want that gross stuff out of you and the best way to rid yourself of it is a thorough butt flush... A colonic. The internal cleansers are more of a preventative measure, they keep things from getting worse or building up, but they do not necessarily do the trick in getting it all out. They do not pry the old "CRAP" loose is what I am saying! You'll only be half way done! Either way, our Ultimate Herbal Product contains everything those cleansers claim to plus about 50 other herbs on top of anyone else's product. Save your money and get 4 times the product for half the price here.

Ok, it's official, Book Four is ticking off the Personal Training community. This book has been rejected for promotion by no less than a dozen organizations because it teaches you the things they have been stringing you along about to buy their other courses! That's right... They would rather you pay THEM HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS than buy a measly little 300 page $29.95 book from me... Hey, that's cool... I set out to add to your knowledge, brush you up, and here, I created another controversy, go figure... I am used to it... Does it matter? Not really. Why? Well, one of the biggest names in Southern California Medicine is about to put a stamp of approval on it... Someone who has more pull than anyone running an organization that's afraid of me, you can bet on that! And one of the most visible cosmetic surgeons is coming on board as well... We'll show 'em!
Speaking of medicine..... Keep in mind, the nutrition industry lies to you time and time again in order to gain your trust. They not only lie about what is in their products or their other services but they do so while trying to turn you against conventional medicine and alternative choices in the process. Understand that while there certainly are plenty of medical mishaps that go undetected daily, the chances of you remaining healthy are much greater if you cover all your bases than if resorting to mere vitamins or a certification alone. Not all medicine is bad. Not all surgeries are unnecessary. Not all alternative medicine is worth putting time into. And I intend to put my foot down to contest (cun-test) any organization that says I am wrong. So, to you certifications that want to bash me, you will pay dearly for those efforts.

It's official, IT IS A GIRL and our baby's name will be Catalina Lemmon. I know I probably posted that already but we just reserved the domain name catalinalemmon.com and have decided that if she wants a middle name, she can pick one herself, but you can eventually see photos galore of her on an Official Website.... Proud Pappa to be... Don Lemmon... Man, this is so cool, we had an ultrasound performed today and we cannot wait for this little girl! We are so excited! Oh, we named her after the place we decided to get married! To see her face on the ultrasound printout: CLICK HERE

I am sorry to note that at least for now, there will be no more monthly newsletters. I may change my mind but instead I think I will be doing this blog more in depth, starting a message board and then you can come check those out until I sort things around in my head. There are too many spam filters blocking the news I send, too many people claiming they haven't gotten one in months and sending hate mail (which doesn't exactly make me want to send them anything kind in return) and ironically, I have been mailing the news every few weeks all summer.... With little positive response... Maybe I can find a service to do this for me, I am not sure how to handle it.... I know people say a mailing list is important to remind clients and potential customers about your work so you make more sales, which we all need to stay afloat either way, however, I also know I for one am sick of spam. I lose mail daily because my spam filter thinks the newsletter I signed up with friends is junk. I feel your pain. Blame it on other SPAM. For the time being, please, just bookmark my site, check back once a month or weekly, but do not forget me. I will be here posting new items weekly for you, I promise.

I was sent a funny video the other day. A clip of a client using the Bodylastics kit outside... In the rain... Screaming, "I will not miss my workout!" Funny? Dangerous! The rain storm was during one of Florida's recent hurricanes! Talk about dedicated, "Anywhere! Anytime!"
Some of you were confused over last week's offer/sale... We had posted on the home page that we were putting out a MAIL ORDER ONLY deal but that wasn't clear enough. Complaints came in from about 12 people, and I am just being honest, MAIL ORDER means MAIL ORDER not ONLINE ORDER, please pay attention. I love you, but you give me a hard time every now and again because you fail to read what I post. In order to assist the folks who get so easily upset, we have changed the wording of special and also extended the sale to be good online as well but only until the 15th. If you decide to order via snail mail, please include $5.00 for S&H...
Thank you by the way for all the kind emails regarding my getting glasses. I am enjoying the ability to get back to working on the sites, articles, emails, and books full time again. In case you haven't noticed, we have added 60 new articles to my magazine sites this week. If I weren't wearing the new specs, my eyes would have caved in staring at the screen around #3!
Think about something before you finish your day... It would be impossible to get fat off of clean food, clean water, 8 hours of sleep and exercising at the most, every other day for 30 minutes at a shot... So what is holding you back in trying my program? It's never too late, but it does get harder on the body the longer you put it off! Climb on board today!
OK folks, I am off to the beach to snorkel, feed fish, watch sea turtles and get some fun in the sun with the World's most loved wife... Mine!

What a week... I had to get glasses. I tried putting it off but 12 to 16 hours a day of answering emails, writing articles, editing novels, publishing scripts, programs, blah, blah, blah, for the past 8 years... It caught up with me. My wife insisted I go to a doctor like it or not so I buckled down to please her. I cannot tell you how much better I feel. I was convinced my eyesight was fine despite the blurred right eye and nothing helping the migraines. I had this problem before, it came and went and always felt better after I had a chiropractic adjustment, took a nap or had a good meal but not lately. Do I feel old now? At first I felt like it meant my body was failing me from age but it has more to do with abuse. I am a workaholic and I work on a laptop about 8 inches from my eyes.... Stubbornly, I faced the facts and have made a work schedule that now includes play time, work away from the comp and spending half the day out of the house on top of using a new computer that seats me 3 feet from the screen.
In one short week I have come around so much that I find I can get 16 hours of work done in 5 to 6 hours of time and sometimes less. I also find I enjoy my work now that I can see again and I have no problem doing things I once dreaded or put off. To think it is all because of my eyes. Go figure. The doctor told me no amount of good food, exercise or supplements can fix an abused eye, only rest and proper eyewear can... I am both convinced and thrilled with the results plus my wife says I look like the sexiest professor she ever laid eyes on... So, hey, I win from all angles!
Speaking of sexy, Asia and I went to one of our favorite dinner spots last night and it happened to be hosting the big Hawaiian Tropic Swimsuit Contest. Can I just say that I wish all the girls luck, a long career (career in modeling swimsuits??), happiness, fame and all that if that is what they want... But just one walk through that place was enough for me... My wife really is the most beautiful woman I ever knew and I am the luckiest man in the world to have her love and support. I wish I could bottle up and sell how I feel about this woman, I really do. The world would be a better place. Thank you Asia for talking me into getting these goggles. I can now see without a doubt that you are the most beautiful woman I know. Let's go make some ginger bread cookies and celebrate your 4th month of pregnancy!
