What is the One Breakthrough Company with the Key to Global Commerce

I get emails from Motley Fool all the time, trying to get me to buy into one of their investment group emails or something.  Those guys are great at the extended, super long, extra special, wait for it, wait for it, now wait for it longer.....tease.  They get me to click on their stuff about 15% of the time just based off of curiosity.  Every time I think they're telling the truth that the "whole story" is just a click away....I find out they fibbed and they want you to sign up for one of their services first with no risk to me since I can cancel at any time.
Good thing we have the internet.  After a quick search for their latest teaser, a report based on a small Virginia firm called One Breakthrough Company with the Key to Global Commerce
I found out from a site called Stock Gumshoe that the company in question is most likely Rosetta Stone (RST).  I've never tried any of their products, so I have no idea whether this would be a good investment or not.  Has anyone reading this ever tried Rosetta Stone software?  I have a couple friends that gave it a shot and I'm looking in your direction guys!
Good luck to anyone that puts some money into RST.

Blend Fitness

So I'm going to start a new workout regimen starting tomorrow around 6 am. I signed up for this new gym called Blend Fitness in Lutz, FL, it's open 24 hours and it's kind of/sort of in the back of our subdivision (takes about 5 minutes to get there) so it's pretty convenient.

Now that I think about it, I could potentially ride my bike there in the morning and get 10-15 minutes of cardio out of the way before I even get there! Thanks for the idea, internet!

Anyways, I'm going to take measurements and stuff to see how much my body changes, and I'll post the changes here just so I can come back to it next year and reminisce to the good ol' days, when my body gets fat all over again. That's the spirit, Mike!

Waist: 42"
Right Bicep: 17 7/8"

Allison Pernecky, my little wife, helped me with the measurements and we took the waist measurement from just above where my hip bones ended. That's what the Google told us to do, so that' how we'll do it.

As for food and stuff, I think the first few weeks I'm just going to work out and not concentrate too much on my diet. I think my diet will improve naturally with me working out, it seems I eat better things when I'm actively working out than when I'm sedentary, so we'll so how that goes. After the first month or so I'll need to cut back on portions more, and concentrate more on what I'm putting into my body, but I don't want to shock it just yet.

I've asked some friends if they thought it would be a good idea to post pictures of me in my underwear to see how my body changes through the weeks and months...but they all said no. No idea why.

So we'll see what happens this time around. My goal is to weigh around 225 lbs and take inches off of my waist while adding inches to my arms. Thanks for reading.
