That's right; you'll find me in the trees. Curious? Stick with me. If you follow me on Instagram, this is probably no surprise to you, as some of my fondest photos are either from high atop or down below some of my favorite trees. I spend as much time as I can, rain or shine, outside. [...]

egg-free, nut-free cocoa fudge brownies and the power of movement

Brownies, oh brownies, how I love brownies. You know what else I love (something that I haven't written much about recently, but practice every single day)? CrossFit and movement in general, really. Nutrition is the basis of health, yes, but movement, well that's what makes us human. It's something we all share a need for, [...]

So, I have talked a bit about the multiple back injuries that I have dealt with over the past year and half, but I haven't gone too much into the details. Here's the post where I dive in... stick with me though, there is a happy ending! Through all of this pain, frustration, and impatience, [...]

the open, laughter, and remembering what this is all about

So, I have been holding my breath since 14.1 was announced, hoping and wishing for NO chest to bar pull ups or muscle ups until the very last week. But you know… the whole unknown and unknowable thing got the best of me this week. My back is nowhere near ready for any sort of [...]

the open is upon us… plus a morning in my meal world

By | 2015-03-31T13:42:59+00:00 March 1st, 2014|Movement Tips, Nutrition|

Let's talk about 14.1.  *note: if you don't care that much about The Open, I hope I can help change your mind, BUT you can also just scroll to the bottom for some nutrition tidbits for today. I have a recipe for you, and I go through what a morning of eating around my training [...]

the OPEN!!! and the balancing game….

By | 2015-03-31T13:43:00+00:00 February 28th, 2014|Movement Tips, Nutrition|

*NOTE: This is one of my earliest posts. My mindset and focus as a Nutritionist Consultant has changed a lot with education, and I now focus first on nutrient-density and then on balancing macros, BUT I still believe whole heartedly that everyone should measure food at least once to get a good grasp of what [...]
