112913Black Friday shopping is best done online to avoid the lines and the insanity.  You can check out the ABL Group page for posts on Black Friday Deals and acitivities.

However, if you don’t have a fitness plan and are up for a really good cardio, drag a friend and check out the deals.


Also, if you miss any deals, don’t forget there is CYBER MONDAY!

Not your ordinary stick.

Check out what it can do…

Is this the future of entertainment or just a glorified thumbdrive?

ABL bought the Chromecast online.  She and Nomo are about to find out!

At the end of the day, it’s not about the technology, it’s about the content.

Spending less on a Saturday

April 13, 2013

Instead of going out or shopping online, here are some tips from ABL on how to spend your Saturday saving:

– Shop in your closet
– BE crafty. See photo below of ABL taking a photo of Nomo while he is being mischievous
– Bake or Cook something
– Make something
– Clean or Organize : It’s spring! Great time to start collecting stuff for a garage sale
– Meditate
– Read or watch a movie (if you have books or videos on queue, it’s a great time to catch up)
– Take a nice stroll (if you live in the Bay Area, there are TONS of places to go for a nice walk especially if the weather is awesome)

Whatever you choose to do, make sure to ENJOY YOURSELF!

Stress is defined as an organism’s total response to an environmental condition or stimulus, also known as a stressor. Stress typically describes a negative condition that can have an impact on an organism’s mental and physical well-being.

10 Health Problems related to STRESS

  1. Heart disease
  2. Asthma
  3. Obesity
  4. Diabetes 
  5. Headaches 
  6. Depression and anxiety
  7. Gastrointestinal problems
  8. Alzheimer’s disease
  9. Accelerated aging
  10. Premature death

Health Problems = Additional Expenses.

ABL and Nomo believe that HEALTH is WEALTH.

Nomo bought Shay Fei Fei a doughnut pillow to de-stress and Jon Kabat-Zinn’s “Wherever You Go, There You Are : Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life” .


Eat healthy, take breaks, prioritize, be mindful and help each other avoid stress!  Surprise someone with a gift to de-stress!

What’s your biggest FEAR?

March 8, 2013



What’s your biggest FEAR?
It’s usually FEAR that holds us back.
FEAR is also associated with FAILURE.
Failure is not an end result, it’s a stepping stone to success.


Do something that scares you!
