Hawaiian Eating…Should you diet on Vacation?

I just spent 7 beeeyoootiful days in Hawaii.  I left stressed out and I’m coming back with the Aloha Spirit.  Nothing like a vacation filled palm trees, beautiful sunsets and inviting people to take the stress right out of you. So here’s the dilemma, should you eat or not eat on your vacation? When I…

You Got Me in Knots!!! Please untie me…

I gotta tell ya… there’s nothing worse than a body covered in knots.  If that’s you, then this will be a must read.  Have any of you heard of myofascial release? Awe the internet, what is easier than googling whatever it is that you’d like to find out about.  Ok for you lazy bums, here…

Ahhhhhh… Sunday

Sunday morning breakfast started with a toasted everything bagels with Nova Scotia lox and capers.  A fresh pot of coffee with sugar-free vanilla creamer and fresh fruit.  Fruit included strawberries, blueberries, raspberry and bananas.  Today being my cheat day… a delicious breakfast is actually what I needed. What was today’s workout?  Nothing, nada!    Rest, rest,…

Clean Slate

When I was a kid, my brother and my sisters and I would fight and we would fight often.  We would have so much fun together, but eventually we would get into these downright full on brawls.  We would be at each others throats.  Plus, we would call each other every name possible.  The one…

The Meek shall inherit the Earth…

Blessed are the Meek; For they shall inherit the earth… Matthew 5:5 When I was a child, I read the bible cover to cover because I was searching for meaning.  I wanted to search for something that was real and good and I remembered a lot, but this phrase stuck with me for many years….

Feel Good Baby…

LOVE INKS – Blackeye (Official Video) – YouTube. I love obscure music. It really makes me feel good when I’m feeling a little down in the dumps. Lately, I’ve noticed that I’ve been a bit scattered. How do you not dwell on the bad things? I don’t really know. All I know is I had…

Wine me up, bring me up…

I went wine tasting with my friends and besides all the drama there exists beauty.  The sensation of wine, the conversation, the taste of the food.  Enjoying the beauty, nature and the atmosphere of the wineries.  I soaked in all the flavor of the wine reverting back to what is good. I had a beautiful…

I can eat bread!

Paleo Bread™ -Almond (1 Carb). I have images of eating bread with a glass of wine, eating bread with hot chocolate, eating bread before dinner taunting me in all its glory, toasty and brown. Growing up, my mom would make us our native bread, “Pan de sal”.  It would be full of carbs, so soft…

Yeah you’d think you learned your lesson Working…

Yeah, you’d think you learned your lesson. Working hard, doing more difficult hard workouts, thinking you are invincible.  But alas, rest is in order.  You caught the bug.  You are home sick.  Remember that for your body to have a proper recovery period, it’s important to rest.  Don’t be one of those people. Don’t tough…

As I was listening to The Who’s song …”The Real Me” from the album Quadrophenia, I realized that we must maintain our authentic selves. I’ve been nursing a concussion the past week and it gave me a lot of time to think. Well girls and boys, life is much easier when you try to be…
