Something weird happened today…

“Something weird happened… I walked around stop and shop and had no desire to buy or eat anything that wasn’t a whole food or considered clean” This morning I had to substitute teach Body Pump at 6am for one of my friends so I had a banana on my way in (I’m really trying not…

Getting stronger::New ink

I literally learn something new every single day that I go to crossFit. The cardio work is my least favorite but mostly because it needs the most work. I am starting to become a stronger rower, but I still find myself going out too hard to start and tapering off at the end. I do,…

Enjoy your food…

The thing about this exploration of Intuitive eating, for me at least – is these little steps, these little inner thoughts that have me thinking about what I choose in a completely different way, has been one huge learning experience and it’s just beginning!
