Wow!! I definitely used to be one of those people. In 2009-2011 the market had crashed so bad where we lived, my husband and I made the very hard decision to let our house go into foreclosure. Since that time, and since 2013, we decided to live like no one else and never get in […]
As a trainer, and creating meal plans for people, I naively thought all I needed to do, was take my clients food preferences into consideration. I learned that so many people suffer from bouts of IBS, Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis or other digestive issues that make just eating, “normal, healthy” food an often miserable experience. Not […]
It’s no secret, I have been living on the road for the past year, and my life and workouts have changed! Just two months ago, my husband and I took the RV and moved semi-permanently to Utah, to live with Grandma on her farm and help her with her animals. Oh, at the same time, […]
Consideration was provided by New Balance I’ve always been inspired by women with stories of challenge and triumph. One of my first and favorite books I ever read was called, “Don’t You Dare Give Up,” a book about a gymnast who was paralyzed doing the sport she loved, but out of her tragedy she […]
If you have been with me awhile, you may have ended up on one of my financial webinars, where I shared a pretty personal story from 2011-2012 when my husband and I decided to foreclose on our home in Las Vegas and file bankruptcy, due to the huge down turn in the economy in our […]
As you know, I’m a traveling gypsy. Living on the road also includes lots of flights out of town. The hardest part of this lifestyle IS making time for exercise or activity. I know my life isn’t typical, but, I think many of you can relate to the fact that maybe having kids and running around, […]
Sooo I’ve been living in a van….. down by the river, for a good 8 months now. Alright, so it’s an RV and it’s not really by a River, but still. I spend a LOT of time working in a small space, and while it’s fun, I’ve been really neglecting my fitness, because I “don’t […]
Maybe you’ve noticed, or maybe you haven’t been around me long enough to notice, but I have made a huge, huge shift in the way I do fitness. I have started to really look inside and do what feels right to me. I used to be this hard-core, “no excuses” maniac, who didn’t believe that […]
Thanks to Shannon from Skinny Sometimes for a great soup recipe! Yum!
I get emails with training and diet questions all the time. I also get this question (or version of it a lot) <<<Q: I used to be a size 18 and now am a size 2. I eat clean, weight train and do cardio, but I still have this loose skin. How can I tighten […]
Paleo Onion Rings? The PERFECT New Years Eve snack! If you’re staying in to celebrate, grab some friends and whip some of these up. You’re going to be glad you did!
Its been no secret that I have been on the road for the last 3 months. As fun and exciting as it has been, I am definitely glad to be home with my awesome husband and pups. I do get asked quite often how I am able to do it/afford it, etc. and I got […]
