10 Simple Rules For Dating My Daughter

Hey my awesome friends and clients. You all know that I have been blessed with a beautiful baby girl(her name is Bailee Rose). On July 3rd of 2009 my whole life changed when I held my little girl in my arms for the first time.

sam-b-bw

There is nothing in the world that I wouldn’t do for my baby girl. I remember the first thing that I picked up was “Baby on board” sign for the back of the car.

I know I will be SUPER protective of her when it comes time for her to date. As a matter of fact I am already stressing about it and that’s why I wrote this blog post.

I even dusted off some of my old never seen before bodybuilding pictures for this post.

sam-lookin-ar-bb

TO ALL PARENTS I NEED YOUR HELP. CAN YOU PLEASE COMMENT AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS BLOG POST ABOUT HOW YOU PROTECT YOUR KIDS. I WOULD TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR INPUT.

Rule One:
If you pull into my driveway and honk you’d better be delivering a package, because you’re sure not picking anything up.

ups-delivery-boy-costume

Rule Two:
You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter’s body, I will remove them.

sam-workin-out

Rule Three:

I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips.

Please don’t take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots.

sag

Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object.

However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.

Rule Four:
I’m sure you’ve been told that in today’s world, sex without utilizing a “barrier method” of some kind can kill you.

Let me elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.

sam-w-truck

Rule Five:
It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day.

Please do not do this.

sam-w-harley

The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is “early.”

Rule Six:
I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls.

This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter.

sam-in-front-of-water-fall

Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you.

If you make her cry, I will make you cry like a baby.

crying-baby-257x300

Rule Seven:
As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget.

staircase-clock

If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating.

My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge.

goldengate_painter

Instead of just standing there, why don’t you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?

sam-w-red-car

Rule Eight:
The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter:

Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool.

sam-next-to-truck

Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight.

rules31

Places where there is darkness.

Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness.

Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka – zipped up to her throat.

sam-bb-one-arm

Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay.

Hockey games are okay.

Old folks homes are better.

Rule Nine:

Do not lie to me.

I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been.

But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe.

sam-serious

If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house.

target-practice

Do not trifle with me.

Rule Ten:
Be afraid. Be very afraid.

be-afraid-be-very-afraid

It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy near Hanoi.

be-afraidbuddy_frightenedsvghi

When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home.

As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight.

Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car – there is no need for you to come inside.

camoface_dark

The camouflaged face at the window is mine.

Coffee for Fat Loss??

 

Is coffee OK to drink?

blogcoffee-cup

At just 5 weeks old, our daughter Bailee isn’t always the best at sleeping … 2 hours here, 3 hours there.

bailees-birth-announcement4

Sometimes leaving me and my wife Johnette woozy … tired doesn’t even scratch the surface.

blogtaz-tired

But we of course need to still function during the day – me, at 4:00 AM working out and getting ready to work and throughout the day – Johnette, as she juggles feeding, being mommy, and getting some work done.

blogmon-juggling

As I sat drinking a few cups of green tea this morning, Johnette drinking her coffee, I thought about one of the most common questions we get – “is it OK to drink coffee?”   For some it’s a savior – what I call a “liquid nap.”  But is this drug (yes, caffeine is a drug) a true necessity?  It surely can help keep you alert (particularly when you have a 6 week old at home!)

blogcoffee_roaster1

I have to be honest, I would never in a million years get between a person and their coffee.  Of course not everyone is a coffee drinker, but for some it’s a staple.

So if you’re trying to lose weight and you’re paying attention to your calories and all of your food where does coffee fit in?  I have to be honest, I’m fine with you drinking coffee … it’s not coffee itself that’s the “issue” it’s everything most people put in it.

Sugar, cream, half and half, or that horrendous artificial, imitation, fat free creamer junk.

blog-creameroffice-creamer

Those things all add up – 100 calories here, 100 calories there – and you’re left wondering why you can’t reach your fat loss goals.

A regular cup of black coffee – no calories – no worries.

blogblackcup-of-coffee

But a coffee shop latte can pack a whopping 400-500 calories!  Talk about sabotaging your fat loss efforts!  Particularly when coupled with a scone, muffin, or whatever else you may pick up on the way to the office.

blogcoffee-latte

The bottom line is you need to know how many calories you’re truly taking in and how they all fit in your daily routine.  Drink an extra 100 calories each day (which would be just a bit of whole milk and 1 tsp of sugar in a coffee) and you’ll pack on 10 extra lbs at the end of the year.  Couple this with other added calories and that weight can come on pretty quickly.

And if you were to rationalize that you’re going to exercise to “balance” out those added calories, remember that walking or running 1 mile burns just 100 calories.

Therefore, drink a latte and run 5 miles – you’ve essentially stayed the same.

Not that I’m saying walking or running is the best way to burn fat, but you get the point.

Moral of the story?  You need to account for the calories you put in your body … all the calories you put in your body.

3 Things will help you do this:

1. Eat attentively – don’t eat or drink when distracted.  That means NOT in front of the TV, while reading, or in front of your computer.  Doing any of those means you’ll eat more calories, without even “knowing” it.

blog-watchtveat

2. Avoid the extra BLT’s – bites, licks, and tastes – tasting while cooking, finishing off your kids’ drinks or foods, or eating before putting food away (you know, when there’s leftover dinner and you take a few bites before you put it away)

blogsneaking-candy-shim

3. Write down what you eat and drink – this increases your awareness and will help you lose fat.

diet journal

Oh yeah, and coffee is OK – just watch those added calories.
