Year in Review

2014 was an interesting year for me, it taught me about my limits, tested my resolve, I learned a bunch of new recipes and I tried to transform my eating. I have to say I wasn’t prepared for the push-back I got from my body with all its injuries and that was tough for me. … Continue reading

Annual Check-Up

This week I went to my doctor for my annual check-up, and I was nervous because I know I will fall in around the same weight as last year, even after all the hard work I had done. I was disappointed with myself and wanted to have a frank talk with her about this and … Continue reading

Change #2: Food

So here is the struggle: I adopted full-paleo at the beginning of the year by doing a Whole 30. It worked really well, I lost weight and I was feeling like a shooting star—full of life and energy. Then after it I slowly saw myself going back to sugar {of course, you tricky vixen} and … Continue reading

Month of Madness

I have had an interesting month. Right before I went on vacation I had a, as the south like to call it, a come-to-Jesus talk with my chiropractor regarding all my injuries this year. It was a great chat and some truths needed to be communicated. I won’t go into too much detail, but I … Continue reading

The Honesty Post

Alright it’s time to get real, shake off the sugar-coating. I had a rough summer where I was injured and I went back to sugar. I gained some weight back. I didn’t workout much and lost some of my conditioning. I also got sad about it. But that sadness turned into resolve when I saw … Continue reading

Ghee Recipe

A few weeks back my friend Hayley came over and we made our own ghee! It didn’t turn out as magical as OMGhee’s, but it still turned out exceptionally well. We used the Nom Nom Paleo recipe. The key to this recipe is choosing a butter that is of good quality. The recipe called for Kerrygold butter, … Continue reading

Scardy Cat

Since I have been given the go-ahead to run and jump I have been a sissy–I haven’t been trying to do double unders, as that was what hurt me in February. Yesterday though, double unders were part of the skill portion and I decided to stop avoiding them and just see if I could do … Continue reading

Menu Week 1 of Whole 30 {Part Three}

It’s hard coming up with a menu when you are away all weekend and have been under the weather. When all you want to do is sleep, you have to find a way to buck up and figure out a plan. I am hoping that by eating clean tomorrow I might get better faster–dare to … Continue reading

Crazy Two Weeks!

Talk about going MIA! After the competition I went to a regular crossfit class but everything in my body cried during that workout. Plus the exposed skin on my thumb prevented me from doing a lot of work. It didn’t help that the workout had a lot of elements from the Saturday stuff, so I … Continue reading
