Week 1 of the Vegan Elimination Diet in Review AKA I didn’t starve to death

I’d been joking since I started planning this diet that i was going to survive on air and water for weeks but really there are a LOT of things that are vegan + gluten/corn/soy/peanut/cane sugar/green pea/pineapple/banana free!

Should you exercise when you’re sick?

I know i know… we all like black and white answers. but… not everything is cut and dry. the only black & white answer here is if you have a fever, don’t work out. Everything else… it depends. My rules (and i am NOT a doctor so please consult your doctor on this!) are: if…

But this is about after you’ve decided to get your omega 3s from a plant based source & are just trying to figure out what the best source is or the difference between the sources. I like to mix it…

Getting Started with Running | Things I’m Learning from my Sister

My little sister and I (yes… she’s taller than me) are ridiculously similar in so many ways. First of all… our laugh. We laugh loudly and distinctively.

Sure… sure… sure… sure… Unsure… unsure… unsure… unsure…

Anyone know what that subject is referencing? My mind is so weird. It’s from an old deodorant commercial where there are people at a concert and they show the person that is wearing the sure deodorant getting all excited because they can throw their hands in the air (and wave them like they just don’t care)…

From TurboJam to TurboFire to TurboFitLife!

So I did ChaLEAN Extreme back in 2010 and that was really my gateway drug into fitness. And on one of the ChaLEAN DVDs there’s a TurboJam workout that I tried one day and my life was changed.
