I have been on my new meal plan for a month now (you can read all about it here) and I have to say, I am liking the overall results! Pros: I feel more energized and I am giving my body the nutrients it needs to get through my classes, my personal weight lifting routines, my marathon training and daily […]

I love reading (or listening) about anything health, fitness and nutrition related. I am always taking screen shots on my phone of article headlines that I can go back and read later. I want to start sharing some of those with you. I’ve done the dirty work and found the best one’s for you! Before tackling emails this Monday morning, […]

When I saw the topic for this week’s Friday Five Link Up I knew I couldn’t pass it up! Five Races to Run in 2015. I think the most difficult part was just narrowing down to five! Thanks to Mar on the Run, Eat Pray Run DC and You Signed Up for What?, for hosting the link up! Check out their blogs too for […]

Use what you have on hand (the only ingredient I omitted was thyme) and try it out for yourself. I was lucky enough to […]

I explained here how I tried a Paleo for Athletes meal plan and found out it wasn’t the right meal plan for me. Taking another approach to finding a nutrition plan that would help keep me energized, help me set a new PR in my spring marathon and drop my body fat percentage kind of happened by coincidence. I love networking with […]

I cannot believe we are in February already! Over the weekend I looked back at my progress so far with the goals I set for 2015. Some I’ve stuck with and some I have revamped.
