The Temple of IRON!

We all have our temples. Places we go to find peace, to clear our minds, to revitalize our insides. For some, the bedroom is a sanctuary from the stresses of life. For others, it may be the library, a park, the kitchen, bathtub, and so on. For me, it’s the gym. I know it’s an […] Read more…

Just buy the f*cking pants.

Some new things are on the horizon for me. Things that I said I would NEVER do. Like Crossfit and running races and buying bigger pants. Instead of saying the cliché, I’ll just leave this here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENyymZ1yqa0 (I freakin’ LOVED that movie as a kid.) So Crossfit. I bought a two-month coupon because I need […] Read more…

Fitness & Friends

One of the most satisfying feelings for me is making a real connection with another human being. On par with that is the sense of belonging, laughing, helping other people, and making a difference. A very big reason why I lead a free boot camp class every Sunday is because it helps me experience these […] Read more…

Summertime and the living’s easy.

I’m a fan of a metaphors. Daydreaming while I was driving home from the gym, it occurred to me that I’m in the summer years of my life. The newness and naivete of spring have passed, and the age of summer with its sun-soaked revelry and earthly abundance is well in progress. To me, being […] Read more…

Channel Your Inner Sarah Connor

“How the hell did you learn how to do that?” I looked up to see a girl standing two feet in front of me. I hadn’t even noticed her walk up while I was entering the number of chin-ups I did into my phone. Normally, I don’t like interruptions, but I was happy to address […] Read more…

Something for everyone

Boot camp was a lot of fun this weekend. Two new recruits came out. And so did a regular…who brought this Coke along with him. Tsk, tsk! But at least he showed up. I wanted to share the workout we did, in the hopes that some of you out there might be willing to try […] Read more…

Starting from scratch

It’s been chilly the past few days in Miami. Since it’s normally as sticky and hot as Satan’s armpit, I’m kind of short on cold-weather wear. And by cold weather, I mean 50 degrees Farenheit. Everything is relative, okay! Fortunately I am good at improvising, and used my hair as a scarf. It really did […] Read more…

A review of my absense in photos.

Damn. It’s been a while.   Where to even start…   Oh yeah, the no sugar bet. David and I both made it through the week without ingesting any added sugar. (We were still eating fruit and dairy though.) We even withheld at a party that had these treats laid out before us, begging to […] Read more…

My review of Jamie Eason’s Livefit program

A few months ago I mentioned that I was changing my workout routine. It’s usually good to switch things up, and I definitely learned a few things from it. At the time of the switch I was working out 4x a week doing an upper and lower body split. Cardio was usually Bodyrock or something […] Read more…

Sober partying and a lying reverse pistol

When it comes to my goals, a big obstacle I’ve always faced is staying on point during the weekends. For years I’ve teetered back and forth between wanting to be gung-ho about not imbibing or eating fried food on the weekends, and then inevitably jumping off a cliff into an oblivion of carbs and alcohol […] Read more…
