Be careful of frozen yoghurt

I really want a Garmin. I was eyeing them off yesterday when I bought a Spi Belt to hold my work pass and keys when I run. Currently they just flop about in my hands and started melting in the sun. Figured a spi belt was a worthy expenditure. Can’t wait to test it! So back to the Garmin. Currently I use RunKeeper app to work out my km’s and it tells me my pace every five minutes....more

Doing the Little Extras

 In case you hadn't noticed, I spend a good bit of my time working out. It's obviously not all I do...I also teach, host/co-lead a Bible study, take courses for my Masters, study God's Word, maintain a healthy happy marriage, and all the other every day things we all do. I'd say for all of us, it can be pretty difficult to fit in everything we want to. Cuts and compromises need to be made. However, lately I feel like I've been making some cuts in my triathlon training that are not necessary and that I am not happy about......more


A few days ago the fabulous Roo posted over on her blog about something called DietBet. She had talked about DietBet on her blog a couple of other times but it wasn't really something that interested me until now....more

I have never been a fan of detoxing. The whole idea of it is just a little hard to buy. These products and plans and books make all these great claims about how a certain diet will quickly and effectively change our life forever. Or a detox will rid our bodies of all these toxins and make us so much healthier… but what scientific proof is there, really!? What studies have shown how much toxins are in the human body before and after a detox, how many toxins were actually cleaned out, how long will they stay out?...more

P90X / Insanity Journey Day 2

Aug 20th, 2013 Work out:  Insanity Plyo Cardio Circuit 7:30 am So excited to do Insanity!  My upper body is sore as hell though.  I had the same breakfast which consisted of egg whites and my thin bagel with avacado on top.  I had some pretzels and string cheese for a snack while I worked this morning and then one of my healthy choice meals for lunch since I will be working and its easy.   3:45 pm Well… I didn’t get a chance to do Insanity today. I worked all morning and afternoon and then my daughter has gymnastics tonight....more


It seems like lately there’s a lot of talk about green smoothies and juicing and whether or not they’re good for you. I was lucky enough to receive a Vitamix and a juicer for Christmas this past year and I use them both on a regular basis. Once I started getting more into juicing and smoothies I started to look around for more information to figure out why people would think they might be bad for you.  Here’s my two cents on the subject.Smoothies...more
