The Nutrition Experiment: Learning

I’m now a couple of months into my Precision Nutrition program. I am routinely checking my email first thing in the morning for my “nutrition lesson” and attempting to complete my assigned “habit” each day. I don’t think I have lost an ounce. At the same time, I don’t think I’ve gained an ounce either. […]

My Favorite Adventurers

I woke up this morning and had a chance to read my friend Sallie’s new blog. Sallie and John are on an adventure. They are in their mid-60s, practically newlyweds and retired (John for about a year). They traveled the U.S. on several trips last year, but this year they sold everything they own (including […]

How to Change the World

I woke up this morning, fixed myself a beautifully green matcha latte and tuned in to last night’s Late Show on YouTube. Colbert’s long-time cameraman died last weekend. He was visibly broken up, and I was surprised when he said this man was such a treasure to him because “He believed in me”. I’m always […]

The Loss of Creativity

I have been struggling with writer’s block. Not for a week or a month but, in reality, for a couple years I have been shut down creatively. Who do you think you are? Why do you think anyone wants to read all of of this stuff about you? Those messages are burned into my brain […]

Ready to RUN!!

This week is the last week of my Fit Camp series. What should have been 12 weeks turned in to 13 when I took a week off in February to vacation in the Upper Peninsula. Reflecting back on why I invested my time, energy and dollars into this, I have met my goals. I was […]

Creatures of the Night: Nocturne

I am a recovered insomniac. That doesn’t mean I don’t struggle with insomnia every now and again, but it does mean that I don’t live a virtually sleepless life anymore. And may I add that this is the success that I am more grateful for than another other accomplishment. There is nothing like a good […]

An Old Dog Can Learn New Tricks

I’ve been creating new habits. I started Jessica’s Fit Camp in January, and that program is 12 weeks long. I have two weeks left, so I’m going to commit to doing all the workouts this week. It will be tough. But, since it’s almost over, I should be able to do this! This week I […]

Savoring Slowness

I met with a young woman at work a few weeks ago to discuss what a training career might look like. She scheduled 30 minutes on my calendar, and we talked. I asked her about her background and her history with our company. I told her about my career of choice, and we explored the […]
