Are you ready to celebrate the Fourth of July a week from today? I plan on running a 5K to start the day off and then refuel later with a juicy Jennie-O turkey burger. Turkey burgers are typically lower in fat than beef burgers, but that doesn’t mean they have to be any less flavorful. [...]
Although it seems like I have disappeared, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, I promise. It’s summer time and things are hopping. There has been an increase of personal training clients at the studio, school is out, marathon training is in full swing and the puppies take up a lot of my [...]
It was almost two years ago that I first reviewed The Gluten Free Bar on my blog. Since then, they have added three new bars for a total of six varieties. I was thrilled when I received a box of bars to sample and review.
The new varieties include:

Over the past few years I have been gradually switching over to ground turkey from ground beef. We still eat ground beef on occasion, especially for burgers, but when I make tacos, lasagna or the like, I use ground turkey.

I have been watching The Biggest Loser for years. I love watching the transformations that happen on the show. People who thought that they were hopeless, stuck and destined to be miserable get to the root of their issues and come out on the other side armed with tools to live a healthy life.

Refueling on-the-go is a way of life these days. In a perfect world we would be able prepare a meal to refuel after every hard workout, but we all know the world is far from perfect. The next best thing is a bar you can eat on-the-go that is packed full of the important nutrients [...]
Everyone seems to dread Mondays. It’s back to work or school and the hectic schedules that keep us on our toes. My Monday morning started at 5:00 AM, when I got up for a 4 mile run. I ran errands until 1:00 PM, but I found some pretty rockin’ deals to make my Monday pretty [...]
I just hit the 500 mile mark with my Fitbit One this morning and received this awesome badge, and reminder of a great song (and movie – Benny & Joon).
And if you don’t already have the song in your head, check this out.
In all fairness I haven’t really walked all [...]
Sunday mornings are spent browsing blogs and Facebook as I drink my first cup of coffee and begin to wake up. This past Sunday I happened across Jill’s post about the “i am enough project”. This post really hit home with me. Why? Part of the reason I have been struggling on and off for [...]
