You know those people in the grocery store who are on their phones the whole time?  Not paying attention, blocking the aisle, almost crashing into your cart.? Apologies if I’ve ever run over your toes, that person is me.

9 weeks in to the SCD diet, and I’ve discovered a few more convenience foods I’m excited to share with you in this blog. But first, let’s talk...

Sometimes I’m not super Zen about all the cooking that has to be done in my house.This past weekend, I made Easter candy. I know, I could have decided that Easter was no longer a candy holiday and just done tattoos and stickers and toys, and we did this to a large extent. But I feel like I’m walking a fine line, between caring for the health of my family and no...

It’s been nearly 4 weeks since we started the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to treat my son’s Crohn’s disease. I’ve picked up some efficiencies, I’m no longer visiting the grocery store daily and our grocery budget isn’t as out of control as it was in the beginning. I hope it’s working, but the truth is, it may be several months before we know if his inflammation...

Day 1, 2:00 pm
A-  “How long do I have to do this diet?”
Me - “We’re going to try it for 3 months, and if it works, we’re going to keep going”
A -  (desperately)“I hope it doesn’t work”

Bill and I spent most of the weekend in the kitchen.  I cooked, he constantly washed dishes -even though we now run our dishwasher twice daily.  I’m getting used to the quantit...

I’m eating my words.  In my 15 years of work as a fitness professional, I have always advised that gluten free/grain free/ dairy free/ keto diets are unsustainable, they’re too extreme, etc.  “Everything in moderation” was my mantra.  I still believe this advice holds true for most people, but I now have the opportunity to test out just how sustainable an extre...

Runners run, swimmers swim, cyclists cycle, so on and so forth. Sometimes we tend to stick to what we know and not step outside of our comfort  zone to incorporate other activities into our workout routine. As adults, we know we have limited time, know what we can squeeze into our schedule and usually just focus on accomplishing the task we already know how to...

The lazy days of summer are officially over which, if you’re like me, is a good time to tidy up and clear the clutter of life.  By the end of summer I always feel like things are a bit out of my control and the inmates (my children) have been running the asylum!  I look forward to those first few weeks of school when the trash bag comes out and busted toys and...

1.   Shopping! It’s a great reason to get some new workout gear (or justify it if you

already have it). Cute tanks, spandex capris, leggings, and sneakers to match every outfit! Once you’re done shopping at your retailer of choice, you can also purchase some HIITLAG gear!

2.   Regular breathing reminders. Seriously, have you thought about breathing today? I...

The Benefits Of Adding Yoga and PiYo Into Your Weekly Routine

Every single one of us loves the heart-pounding, sweaty, shaky, (can’t wash my own hair) feeling you have after a good hard workout!  It’s a feeling that makes it clear that you’ve worked your hardest, and you know you’ll have something to show for it.  But should you choose high-impact, high intensit...

I was obese the majority of my life. People that didn't know me then don't always believe it when I tell them.  But it's the truth.
In 2014, after years of dieting, cycles of exercise programs, and pure frustration, I made a choice that would change my life forever. I spoke to my husband about the possibility of weight loss surgery. I hated not being able to...
