Date Spot: Kukiyama Japanese Steakhouse

Address: 350 Washington Street, Dedham, MA

Featured Date Spot!

Specials: Kibachi!

For an intimate, engaging and fun experience for dinner, this is the place to come. Food is cheap & plenty. They have a decent wine and sake menu. The table is set for your cook/performer to do his thing.

That's when the magic begins.

The cooks are very talented, doing tricks with their utensils. They also cook a fine meal. They treat the food and the cooking like an art, as everything is precise and done with intention.

On top of that everything from the soup to the entree is amazingly delicious.

This is a great place for a group date!

How Food is 90% of How You Exercise

Before I head out to yoga, I wanted to discuss nutrition a little bit. It has always been the thing that prevented me from really looking and feeling my best. I admittedly just have a severe lack of discipline when it comes to eating well. I am hoping that with the help of Revolution Fitness, I can finally find that discipline and eat better so that I can see the results I want.

By doctor’s opinion, I am the epitome of perfect health. Numbers are exactly where they should be. That’s great to hear since I feel as though I don’t eat as well as I wish I could. So far working with Jason Reese from RevFit, he’s helped open my eyes to proper dieting as they pertain to the goals I would like to get accomplished.

Starting today, he wants me to keep track of what I eat and when. That way, he’ll be able to take a look at it and see what I may or may not be doing wrong. He says that sometimes it’s not what you eat, but how much and when you eat it. He proposed a reframe in how I should ration my meals and I’ll talk about that in a video tomorrow. In the meantime, I took the liberty of keeping my own food log in the first week and as you’ll be able to see, I have my good days and my not-so-good days.

We are going to see how things change once Jason can better help me adjust my eating habits and help me reach the goals I want to reach, which I will introduce to you in a video tomorrow.

As you can see, I am NO expert when it comes to fitness and nutrition. If you have any questions, let me know and I’ll relay them to the RevFit team for them to answer here. Or you can ask them yourself on Twitter. There, you can find Jason Reese, Nina Botelho and Derek Christensen who will answer anything and everything.

Tomorrow's video will talk about a computer program that we used to estimate my body fat and can tell you EXACTLY what you need to do to reach your goals and when you'll reach them.
