    Alt title: What Prevented Me From Getting My Head In The Blogging Game I swear, this has been the craziest year! Not bad crazy, exactly, just filled with things that keep me away from the computer. At least, anything FUN on the computer. So what have I been doing? Let’s review. You know about the boot. I sweated through most of the summer in it, but I tried not to let it completely shut me down. I continued to do yard work and housework and other assorted tasks, and I even went to the gym a few times for weight work with the arms, but it wasn’t the same as full body workouts. The…

    I’m pleased to report that I have graduated from the clunky old air boot to a new, easier to manage,boot-let. This is more of a compression sleeve, really, with a hard plastic bottom to it. By removing the insert to my Asics, I am able to cram the entire bootlet into my shoe. It’s not exactly like walking on air, but it’s not that clunky boot, and I’m grateful for that. I’m still not cleared for distance-walking or biking, but going to the gym is sooooo much more enjoyable now. The big boot and the machines at the gym didn’t work for me, so I’ve been…

    Alphabet Soup is a series of posts in which readers and I explore the words, concepts, and ideas that help on the path to weight loss/maintenance. Please join in with your insights! The letter L is a Very Big Deal for me, with respect to weight loss and to life in general. Lots of lessons learned in L-world.

    It seems as though every third person I see is wearing some sort of fitness wristband these days. People seem to like them, or maybe they just like to be seen wearing them. I don’t know, but there’s no doubting that fitness trackers are popular. I confess to a mild curiosity about them, but not enough to plop down a fairly significant amount of cash. ::pause for moment of gratitude that I didn’t plop:: A few weeks ago I was offered an opportunity to review the Pivotal Living Fitness Tracker, a relatively new kid in the fitness tracking neighborhood.

    Well, the verdict is on my foot woes. It’s not good, but it’s not as bad as it could be. Photo Credit Peroneal Subluxation. At least, that’s what I think the podiatrist said. He had a needle in the side of my foot at the time, and I was having a little trouble concentrating. Basically, my tendons are twisted up, and I have some inflammation caused by that. No fracture. No apparent tears or shredding. I’ll take that and count my blessings. The treatment, at this point: Yep, I got the boot. Worse, I got the boot for 6-8 weeks! I don’t know if I can do 6-8 weeks,…

    Visit us at Mamavation.com for more updates, healthy tips and challenges. There are a number of ways food can affect our bodies. It can give us energy, impact how we feel, and change our health. Foods can have both positive and adverse affects, so it’s important that we look at what we’re eating. One of those adverse affects can be an inflammatory response. Inflammation is the body’s attempt to remove something harmful or irritating. Why would you want to eat something that elicits this sort of reaction? You probably wouldn’t. That’s why I’ve…

    19 Aug 2015 | 5:44 pm
      With just two ingredients – canned coconut milk and powdered sugar, you can whip up this easy non-dairy, vegan whipped cream to serve with berries, dessert or anyway you wish to use it. Because I’m coconut obsessed, I can't get enough of this stuff. The hardest part about making it is remembering to put the can in the refrigerator the night before, it's that easy!Light coconut milk will not work here, you'll need to use the full fat kind. The cream floats to the top and hardens as it chills in the refrigerator all night. Then you combine it with sugar and whip it up.

This shrimp ceviche recipe is from my friend Doreen who makes it with vinegar and adds a touch of honey to balance out the acidity. If you're following a Whole30 diet, you can leave the honey out, it will still taste great. It's really simple to make, and and pairs so wonderful with the creamy avocado. It's also great to make ahead, as it…

  • Enjoy Meals with a Sensible Eater if You Want to Eat Less

    Who you sit down to enjoy a meal with and how much they eat can actually influence how much you consume , a UNSW Australia-led study concludes. This psychological effect, is known as social modeling. What it boils down to is that most people tend to eat less than they normally would if they dined alone when their companion consumes smaller portions of food. Study lead author, Associate Professor Lenny Vartanian of the UNSW School of Psychology, says, “Internal signals like hunger and feeling full can often be unreliable guides. In these situations people can look to the example of…

I am exposed to it all… or so I thought. But no. Last night, I read an article that blew my head gasket. Maybe this is normal, maybe these kinds of things are written often; but if they are, I have never seen them.

    I told you in another post that I learned many things from my first Spartan Race. I have to say the most valuable thing is that I am capable of even more than I thought. Along with this, I want to say that what you are capable of has more to do with your mind, than your physical capabilities. A Positive Mind Set My strategy throughout the Spartan Race, obstacles and miles was to tell myself that I could do it.  Sounds simple,right? A lie, maybe? I had to have faith in knowing that I could do it, if I really wanted it. Could I climb an 8 foot wall by myself? No, but I had my team behind me.

    7 Aug 2015 | 5:42 am
     Sleep...Who needs it? Well, we all do. If you are like me then the first space you are willing to take away from in your schedule is sleep. I mean all those "free" hours that we could be doing something more productive. I mean its pretty lazy of us to sacrifice a workout in order to go to bed on time. Right? If this train of thought seems correct to you, then you need to change the way you view sleep. Sleep is just as important as your workout and you diet. I know that is simply not always possible, but if you start prioritizing your sleep you'll find its not that hard to regularly go…
  • Accountability ... Embrace the Discomfort

    13 Jul 2015 | 3:34 am
    Accountability... This concept can be hard to accept and sometimes it's not clear why we can't stay accountable to ourselves. Have you made fitness goals for yourself, but seem to keep letting yourself down? I know I used to feel like I should be able to accomplish my goals on my own without any help. I viewed needing support from accountability tools as a weak point. However, I now realize that's pretty ridiculous. We all have so much going on in our lives and how many people do you know with fitness goals? If it were easy to reach these goals without any help everyone wold be able to do it.
  • Can I spot reduce fat?

    13 Jun 2015 | 12:06 am
     The short answer is no. But it's not that simple.  Here's a better answer: Your body stores fat where it stores fat. So maybe the back of your arms or thighs or stomach is where you notice you are pretty soft. Well, don't be distraught. Because while you can not technically spot reduce fat; you can focus more training on that area. If you want a muscle to grow then work it more. Why is this helpful? In order to get rid of all that softness you will need a two part strategy: 1- Lose body fat 2 - Gain muscle. #1 Train your body and build muscle. Why? Building muscle creates those…

    We all eat foods we realize probably are not the healthiest options. I once had a client say she used too much creamer in her coffee and that’s probably why she was gaining weight. I reassured her that she could continue to put creamer in her coffee. I know I’ve said this before but let me say it again, “No one food is making you fat.” If you are eating something every day then chances are you really enjoy that food. For some people that may be creamer in their coffee, dressing on their salad, or whatever food that many articles have deemed “fattening”. So how do you know which of…

    “I don’t eat very much but I’m still gaining/can’t lose weight.” This is a common complaint I hear during client assessments. I know it can be very hard and frustrating to keep trying to reach your fitness goals when you feel you should already be seeing some sort of result. However, when I hear “I don’t eat very much” it’s an immediate red flag. If you aren’t eating a lot but can’t seem to lose weight or are gaining weight there are a few explanations and actions for each to reverse the effects.

    A favourite of health-conscious eaters as well as junk food fans, chicken is taking over our diets in the US and Europe – but at what cost?When it comes to diet, many health-conscious consumers have come to the conclusion that protein is king.
