I have never posted a blog here before, so I'm going all-out with my first - No holds barred, I'm talking men's room topics and everything.

I have been a viewer of AoM for some time now, over a year easily, but only recently joined the AoM Community recently to start in the 30 Days to A Better Man project.

What's better to aid in becoming a Better Man than taking care of yourself? I say nothing.

My brother, David, about two years back, raved about a product that made him feel better physically, which in turn made him feel better in every aspect of life. He boasted that it was a life-changing addition to his life, yet it came in a canister that he had picked up at the local natural foods market. I was rather curious, oddly amused, but not yet sold on the idea. He went on to tell me more about the product, in drastic/gastric detail, I will try to leave out those stories he shared.

What is it?
Psyllium is a ground whole husk from the plant's seed. The fiber in Psyllium is not digested by the small intestine, so it carries all of the toxins, blockages and etc. right out of your body.

The main benefits of Psyllium are:
-Colon health
-Heart health
-Lowers cholesterol
-High in fiber
-You might even lose a few pounds of all the junk that's been built up in your system

The grounds can be mixed with any liquid and drank immediately, they don't taste like much, but can have a powdery taste to them if not completely mixed. If you let it sit too long, it will not be pleasant to drink as it turns into a slimy texture (mucilage), so drink it ASAP. I started with a tablespoon, once a day. The label read that you can take up to 3, but I am not there yet. If you are just beginning, limit yourself as I have.

The result:
After a week, you'll notice that you've visited the restroom a few more times than normal, you'll also notice that you might have required a bit more air freshener than normal, but all of this means that those toxins are no longer in your body. The scale might show that you have lost a significant amount of them. I noticed that because of this wonderful product: I wouldn't sweat as much during workouts; The sweat that I did let off had less of a scent to it; My restroom trips were quicker and more productive; I felt more energy throughout the day and life felt a bit better in general. The hardest part is taking the few minutes to get it mixed up and down the hatch, stay on your regiment and it will work best for you.

Here is the brand I am currently using:

As an older man, I am not embarrassed to say that colon health is of concern to me. I will give your product a try. If it pans out in improving my health, I will sing its merits from the mountains tops.

Starting a Long Distance Relationship

So, here's the deal. There's this girl that I've kind of known for pretty much my entire life (I'm about 3 years older than her. I'm almost 20, she's almost 17.) Our parents became friends when our fathers were in the military, and even with all the moving around, we would still visit them or they would visit us. Now, for the last 7 years, we've lived about 600 miles apart, but our families continue to visit each other. However, The last time I saw them was when they visited us about 3 years…See More
