Crossfit – The Good. The Bad. And the Ugly.

I’ve completed two Crossfit sessions! The Good: The class was easier than I thought. Not that the exercises themselves are easier (see the bad and the ugly. LOL), but the class as a whole was not what I had in my head. I envisioned repeated HIIT sessions back to back for the whole class. (HIIT…

The liar in your head.

I’m facing THAT moment. Tonight is my last evening of on ramp cross-fit lessons. After today, I have to buy an actual membership and then start a new routine. Feels a bit daunting to be honest. Don’t get me wrong, the training has been great… mostly. I mean I feel good after, so that’s important….

When you really really really don’t want to… do it now.

Autumn is a difficult time for me, as it is for many people who deal with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or depression issues that seem to heighten at this time of year. The one thing that helps so much when dealing with mental health issues is exercise. ~You know this.~~I know this.~ Yet, it’s the…

Studying…

I’m studying for my Holistic Nutritionist program, watching my notes, continuously looking for fantastic tidbits to share with you, however, as with beginning most courses, the foundation is being laid. And, I must admit, the foundation is a bit mundane. Not that I’m not enjoying what I’m learning, I am. All about carbohydrates, proteins, fats…

In Diet & Nutrition, A Holistic Approach by Rudolph Ballentine, MD, a comparison is made from diets in India, China, Japan, France, Mexico, and Middle East. Although Dr. Ballentine goes into great detail on each of these diets, for the consideration of your time, I’m…

The morning routine

A morning routine is a must for me. My routine helps me get organized and start my day on the right path and I’ve learned just how important this impacts my day being productive. Getting through my to-do list is important to me. I have lots to do and seeing things moving forward makes me…

Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway by Dr. Susan Jeffers

Why am I reviewing Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway on my flexitarian lifestyle blog? Because, it applies to making changes in our lives, and for many of us, eating healthy and a regular exercise routine requires a lot of effort. Any little bit of help along the way is welcome. I read plenty…

Are you a visual eater?

What’s a visual eater? If you add food to your plate, not based on what you should eat, but based on making the plate look full, you’re eating with your eyes as opposed to based on hunger signals from your body. Many in our family are visual eaters and my husband and I worked together…
