My (Paleo) Meatloaf Brings All The Boys To The Yard

Posted by:

When I was a child I thought that meatloaf was a a gross hunk of meat loaded with fat, carbs and cholesterol and covered in ketchup; gross. As an adult, I’ve learned that meatloaf is one of the easiest dishes to make and be creative with. It can also be an excellent source of protein AND veggies. Oh, and did I mention it’s comforting and delicious?

In all the meatloaves I’ve made, I’ve somehow managed to never make the same one twice. ...

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 ...

Workouts, Strawberries and a Positive Body Image

Posted by:

Another week, another workout!  Yesterday I had the day off for the US Independence Day.  In preparation of a few extra drinks I crafted a high-intensity full-body workout.  I was really happy with this one and felt it was pretty well-balanced.  It was also the first time I tried doing double kettlebell step-ups and I was surprised how much the 50lbs slowed me down.  It was a great exercise for legs, abs and balance; probably my favorite and the hardest ...

Upper Arm Beatings and Post-Workout Pancakes!

Posted by:

One of my friends, Rosie of Rock Bodies, is a personal trainer who often posts delicious healthy recipes to Facebook.  She found a recipe for pancakes that uses just two ingredients: banana and eggs.  Seriously, that’s it.  They are AMAZING.  Before I made them though I had to finish my workout for the day (especially since I was having local sausage with my pancakes).

Today I wanted to focus on arms and abs.  Yesterday I did Zuzka’s ZShred #3 which ...

Pies and Pushups

Posted by:

It has have been a while since my last entry but I’m still going STRONG on workouts and sticking to my food allergy/healthy diet.  I’m really enjoying seeing my muscle tone improve and I’ve been taking on new challenges.  I’ve fallen in love with kettlebells and have also added some heavier free weights to my collection.  My biggest struggle continues to be learning to do pullups.  So far I can do ONE unassisted and that’s a good start.

To keep my ...

Day 75, 6750 Burpees, 49 Miles, and Chicken Pot Pie!

Posted by:

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 75 days already!  The burpees have basically just become a part of my life at this point, even though they still manage to leave me gasping for air but my endurance for them has greatly increased.  My biggest focus these days is on food.  I’ve been experimenting with more recipes and more flours and there’s one recipe I’m just dying to share with you!

Day 55, 4950 Burpees, 31 Miles, PIZZA TIME!!

Posted by:

Wow, I’m already 10 days past the half-way point of my 90 day challenge!  That is awesome!!  I’m definitely feeling stronger and am seeing more definition in my muscles.  I have a lot more energy.  I can also admit that even though burpees still shoot my heart rate way up and cause me to lose my breath, I can do them faster and I’m recovering quicker between sets.  It definitely helps that I’m doing the ZCUT workouts on top ...
