New Recipe: Egg Salad with Homemade Avocado Oil Mayo

Posted by:

My new Fitbit Charge HR finally arrived!! I’ve been waiting for it since January, when I sold my Fitbit Surge to my fiancé because it was just too bulky on my wrist (he loves it, btw). I’m pretty darn in love with it already. First and foremost for superficial reasons: purple is my favorite color and it’s actually a deeper purple in person than on the website and the LED is purple too, woot!

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) ...

Steak and Exercise

Posted by:

I got a good cardio workout in today, plus those evil PT exercises:

Time: 1:15

  1. Leg lift series (wearing 5 lb ankle weights on each ankle, per PT):
    Single-leg-lift-crunches x 30 each side
    Side leg-lifts x 30 each side
    Lying on stomach, lift one leg back, foot pointed x 30 each side
  2. 30 mins cycling, using Random intervals, average level 8.
  3. 30 mins swimming laps.

I was feeling all that cardio today, more-so than earlier in the week. I greatly enjoyed a little nap afterwards. 🙂

As ...

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 ...

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. ...
