Hiking and Trekking and Climbing…

August 17, 2011

I am from the East Coast. Raised in a town of 400 people. 1.5 hours to the nearest mall, 2 hours to the nearest (major) city, 1.5 hours to any (decent) ski mountain and 1.5 hours to the closest airport (Manchester wasn’t really happening back then). So, with that, the natural surroundings became my friend. […]

Hot Summer (and Hungry) Night? Ceviche to the Rescue!

August 15, 2011

The very first time I ate ceviche was while in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico¬†watching Green Bay rock the Steelers’ world during the Super Bowl this past February. Of course ceviche is a super bowl snack! I was in Mexico! I really enjoyed it that night and as soon as summer hit in Napa Valley, I […]

First and “Core”most

August 9, 2011

So, after several blog posts over the past few weeks, I am finally going to write a little something about the stuff I know best – the human body and how to get it healthy and in shape. (I can go on and on about this stuff, so I will try really hard to keep […]

Vegetarian Paella

August 8, 2011

I have found that many clients aren’t really sure what “healthy eating” is. Frozen fish sticks for dinner do not take the place of salmon from your local fish market. A Taco Bell burrito is not healthier for you than your own cooked beans rolled up in a whole wheat tortilla with some veggies and […]

Quinoa on the Rise!

August 3, 2011

The first time I heard of quinoa was in 2008. I was going on a 7-day cleanse (not any of the starve-yourself kind) and quinoa was listed as one of the clean, preservative-free foods on the menu. Hmm! I wonder where I can get me some of that quinoa? It took me forever to finally […]

Officially Under 400-lbs!

August 1, 2011

Some of you may have read one of my first posts about the client I started training at the beginning of July weighing over 400-pounds. Well, today, Aug 1st, was (dun, dun, dun…) weigh-in day! I have to admit, man was I stressed out about taking his measurements today! It was all I could think […]
