Make it Happen Monday: What’s Right?


I often catch myself saying the words, “what’s wrong” several times a week.  Whether it’s in the direction of my baby boy who’s crying, my older kids’ upset tone, or a sigh of frustration from my Wife….those two words seem to be the first to pop out.

If you believe in the power of words and the incredible things they can do, than focusing on the negative is not something you want to be doing.  I know better, but still seem to have these words slip out without even thinking.  For some reason I use the words, “what’s wrong” a lot more than saying “what’s right”.  I wonder why this is?


I’m going to continue working at focusing on the positive and am going to start off this week by asking all of you…..What’s Right?  Give me the goods and let me know about all the right things that are happening for you today on and off the bike.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
