Yoga.Crossfit.Run.Bike.Eat.

[I wrote this post back in 2012 and never published it. Stumbled upon it in my draft folder and thought I would put it out there. Years later and I’m still practicing this recipe for success] Every now and then I get caught up in work craziness, workout madness, or just good the good ol life roller coasters… now was one of those times. Although I had been eating well and getting in a bike ride, and a WOD on a daily basis there was something missing. I hadn’t taught a yoga class in 2 weeks and my usual 3Continue Reading >>

Surviving The Tough Mudder

I have been racking my brain for the last couple of hours and lingering in major writers block trying to figure out the words to describe my experience from yesterday’s Tough Mudder event, and I’m at a loss.

Seems harmless right? Wrong! Most people never lose the pound they gain and over time the pound add up.

Know your body

Remember when you were a kid and your parents and every other adult around asked you where your nose was, and your toes, and just about every other body part? If you do remember then props to you, I think I must have blocked it out along with every adult asking me to sing and dance! In retrospect though it got me thinking that maybe they were on to something. Every day we get up, go to work, eat food, workout, socialize, sit down, sleep, and do it all over again.
