Pre-Comp Eating Habits

Posted by:

We’re just a month away from The Ring of Fire comp at Central Rock Gym in Watertown, MA.  This year it’s just a citizen’s comp, as CRG will be hosting SCS Nationals that weekend. Ring of Fire was the first comp I participated in and I’m not ashamed to say I came in dead last in the beginner’s category. Ok, I’m not proud to have come in dead last, but you have to start somewhere right? At ...

Let’s Do Brunch!

Posted by:

Oh gosh, I’m so behind in posts so let’s start with something tasty! First, a quick update on fitness. I had a BLAST climbing in Central Rock Gym’s The Heist bouldering competition at the end of September. My knee has been doing great and it didn’t bug me at all during the comp. If you’d like to see highlights from my climbs check out my video below (note, I was climbing in the Beginner’s Division as I’m still a ...

Fueling Up!

Posted by:

Things have been going so well with my knee that I’ve stopped blogging my daily workouts and am going back to just writing about unique workouts and nutrition! It also doesn’t help that it’s school season again so my full-time job has ramped up and I’m once again at the mercy of teachers and students needing all things technical.

Yesterday I signed up for The Heist!! This is an all-women’s bouldering competition held at Central Rock Gym (my home gym) ...

All About The Juice, Part 1

Posted by:

Back in January I made a large post on cleansing. Spring is often a valuable time to cleanse to help the body make the transition from winter hibernation mode, which often involves indulging in comfort foods and drink, to the Spring Cleaning mode of enjoying more light and activity. As I mentioned in my post, there are several types of cleanses. Since I keep a fairly “clean” diet due to my food allergies, I decided to go with one ...

Raising The Bar

Posted by:

I started week two of C25K this week. So far it’s noticeably easier this time around and I feel that’s a testament to how my level of fitness has increased over the years. It’s also a huge help that I’ve kept up with a daily yoga practice. My legs were sore last week but daily stretching with yoga, plus a longer class on Thursday night, has really helped make the soreness barely noticeable. This week I also upped my ...

Barefoot in MA

Posted by:

Welcome to the newest incarnation of my blog: Barefoot in MA. Moving from Vermont back into civilization to the outskirts of Boston makes it harder to stick to that healthy diet I was used to when I was surrounded by farms instead of fast food. Thankfully, the area I moved to boasts several local (albeit pricey) farms and I’m lucky enough to have a friend in Western MA who can hook me up with fresh grass-fed beef and all-natural pork. It also helps ...

Quickie Coconut Milk

Posted by:

This labor day weekend has found me in the kitchen cooking up a storm and in the yoga studio getting my @$$ kicked while completing the pre-req hours for a yoga teacher training that I’m hoping to begin in January.  So I’ve been sore and well-fed. 🙂

I recently placed an order from Amazon for a Nut Milk Bag and it arrived on Saturday!  This morning, after a brutal ZGYM workout, I made coconut milk from scratch and it came ...

WTF Workout?!

Posted by:

August has been a pretty crazy month for me, but while my blog entries cooled down, my workouts continued to fire up!  I’ve been traveling a lot, which means my routine has needed to shift to accommodate my locale.  

The first adventure was a five day intensive Lomilomi retreat.  Lomilomi is a style of Hawaiian massage that I’ve been studying for about two years now.  This was my third class and it was incredibly inspiring.  I knew that I would ...
