Bruno Tries Earthlock

Bruno Tries

Earthlock: Festival of Magic

The game, Earthlock: Festival of Magic is free for XBOXLIVE members who have Games With Gold between September 1st and September 14th. If you are a fan of turn based action games and beautiful music scores, this game is a priority for you. The story is there, but the music is so intense I was just jamming the whole time. I am very big into gameplay and functionality. The game played perfectly well, no hiccups or glitches.

My personal opinion is I won’t play it again. The reason is because after 25+ years of gaming my days of turn based action is just over. Too bad too, because this game probably deserves a whole play through.

Tell you what, I’ll make you a deal. If the video gets 100 likes I’ll finish the game all the way to the end on stream.

Love you all to pieces – Bruno

A GREAT DAY FOR GAMES OF DAYS PAST

A GREAT DAY FOR GAMES OF DAYS PAST

Another three legendary games come back from the past in today’s update to XBOXOne’s backwards compatibility roster.

One of the most played console RTS of all time, Halo Wars, comes back to the future.

An amazing fighter game for its time with all nighters haunting my soul, Soul Calibur II is back!

A fighting game that really could regain popularity for its title with the upgrade if handled properly, King of Fighters ’98, is now playable on XBOXOne through the XBOX360s backwards compatibility library now. This game was incredibly popular in the Far East during its time and among fighter genre geeks from all corners of the Universe.

The full list is always available on Major Nelson’s site.

It’s time to say goodbye, sugar… it doesn’t have to be bitter sweet, though!

nearly zero sugar.

Bye Felicia

It’s time to say goodbye, sugar… it doesn’t have to be bitter sweet, though!

Our family has been working diligently at rewriting our diet since 2013. I personally have lost 50 pounds (Photo proof below!). Wait, I’m not going to make you lather yourself in “Preparation H®” soaked latex body wraps. I’m not going to make you take a bunch of vitamins, (although you really should consider a daily vitamin). We do unfortunately say stop eating sugar. Stop eating High fructose corn syrup. Its poison.

The answer is here and already being super successful in many products across the world. Monkfruit and Stevia used together make an amazing sweetener that has nearly no bitter taste. Has zero sugar.

I replaced soda in my life with water spiked with Monkfruit and Stevia sweeteners to flavor. Sometimes I bubbled the water using a Sodastream I bought at Bestbuy. When we don’t want water our family drinks V8 Fusion juices. It’s important to check the ingredients. V8 has really great products but they do have 2 lines of drinks that have sugar and/or high fructose corn syrup added in. They unfortunately are the flavors more geared to the non juice drinkers.

The great flavors we like for example are the strawberry-banana and acai berry mix. My kids recently found the new V8 Fusion called Orange-Kiwi and its pretty much gone as soon as we open it (well there is 4 of us, after all!).

We are challenging the manufacturers of v8 and other companies to completely replace sugar and artificial sweeteners in their foods and drinks with monkfruit and/or stevia.

This could be the game changer in American obesity and health. It could drastically reduce health care costs and the cost of insurances over time.

If you are on board with this change you need to make it known by publicizing the positive effect it has!

lead by example and experience the change yourself!

Make the change in your own life and then let your family and friends witness the difference. My clothes are falling off. I can fit in the uniforms I wore in the Marine Corps over 15 years ago.

I will be here to coach you, to help you when you are down. I will be your friend if you are alone. Just reach out to me. And me is a few others now, we will be your friends and family. Join TeamBruno’s Live Chat and Text App via Discord today.

Love you all so much, thanks for everything you do for us and we hope to do as much as we can for you when you need us.

Bruno :)

This is me in 2007, my wife took this picture. At this point my diet (from what I can remember, haha!) was mainly bar food and college campus food, but I was so broke all the time trying to impress my future wife, that I didn’t eat more than a cheeseburger a day really. That rent was too high, too.

This is me in 2007, my wife took this picture:

The following photo is me in 2013, with Adeline, my youngest daughter. This was a selfie, I am going to search for more photos during this time. Truth is that I was self conscious because a group of online trolls had made a meme of me with a bunch of Jabba the hut necks. I got the message. I was drinking soda at every meal except breakfast, Monster energy drinks in between.

Achieve Success By Believing In Yourself

Achieve Success By Believing In Yourself

It’s a great day when you go to pay the rent and the money is there. Prayers to those struggling pay check to pay check, keep your head up, keep pounding, keep reducing your costs, keep sacrificing, you will make it, it does get better.

The moment you think to give up and feel terrible, just remember all the work you did to get there and that it would be a waste to quit now. Success is 100% right after the greatest feeling of imminent failure.

You jump that mental wall, and you will succeed every single time. – Bruno
