Fall 2019: Balancing training and recovery with a new system and new tools

Obviously I have written here more about my fitness journey than any other topic. It's been a huge part of my personal growth journey, and even though it's been rocky and slow and frustrating at times, especially the past few years, it have learned so much- not just about food and exercise, but about myself, [...]

Fall 2019: Nutrition and supplements to heal and to support my goals

I've shared a lot recently about how my approach to nutrition has evolved, and I've shared in the past about the supplements I've tried in order to heal my body and, by extension, support healing in my mental health. As I've continued to educate myself on the physical effects of stress, hoping to figure out [...]

Some Starting Steps Toward a Healthier Lifestyle

I promised some ideas of things you can do to start yourself on the path to being healthier in general, and losing excess weight, if that’s something you need or desire to do. I’m going to try to break them into categories, based on what’s easiest, some that are a bit more aggressive, and also [...]

Fall 2019: A New Season

[...]

The Spiritual Implications of Changing My Workout Routine

Welcome to a stream of consciousness post where I process and share at the same time. So, that title is kinda tongue in cheek, but also kinda not. It's clearly no secret that i have really struggled to reach my fitness/ fat loss goals the past four years since my sweet Baby Duck was born, [...]

Baby Duck is FOUR!

Oh Ducky Duddles, Bubber, Bub, Babyman, D, D-Zilla, Sillibub, Maui, Catboy, Gekko, George, King Bub, Bear Bub, Monkey, or whichever character you are today... I cannot believe you are four. Partly because you have plenty of sweet baby boy left in you, partly because time has flown so quickly, but it just seems impossible, like [...]

Re-programming Diet Mentality

So, I have a very close and dear and precious and important and wonderful friend who has fairly recently also become a health coach, and until very recently I have been very uncomfortable whenever I see his posts. It's not because of anything he is saying or doing at all- well, maybe the booty shots [...]
