I actually loooove runing in the cold, rainy, intense weather. Makes me feel like a superhero! Plus, a friend of mine once told me that when I feel like I can't train, that it's just too hard to get out there, it's probably the best time to do it. Where when I actually feel like doing it, I can choose to treat myself with a day off. Works for me! Continue

The hardest part of running outdoors in the cold winter months is actually taking that first step out the door into the blustering cold and away from the warm comfort of my home. The motivation is knowing that 15 minutes into my run, my body will generate enough heat to keep me warm and a few minutes after that my endorphins (a.k.a runner's high) will kick in, reminding me why I love running so much. My favorite winter runs are along the shores. There is nothing quite as surreal and beautiful… Continue

Apple Cider Vinegar has been scientifically proven to lower belly fat, and triglyceride levels after about 4 weeks of taking it twice daily.
The body converts sugars to fat after ingesting carbs and other sugars. The belly having the most sensitive and the most receptive fat stores, it takes the majority of the stored fat. This does not support a healthy active lifestyle and without a high metabolism you could be storing a lot of belly fat. To prevent this from… Continue

I attended the seminar in Costa Mesa
on Tuesday and stopped at the store Brendan was talking at the following night on my way home from work. These seminars are highly informative. For those who haven't read the entire Thrive book, I suggest you try to make it to one of these, a lot of the information is the same but Brendan does a great job clarifying questions that I'm sure many people have even after reading. I was… Continue

I make fresh almond milk almost daily for my family and have always been somewhat stymied as to what to do with that precious left over almond pulp. Today, I had one of those "Eureka" moments and invented a simple cookie that has a texture when dehydrated very similar to a shortbread. The dough was very easy to work with and I had fun cutting out the cookies into fun fall leaf shapes. My kids say they taste just like cinnamon buns!

-oct thru dec.
twice a week, intense circuit training (this involves short, mostly lower body/core work-outs that usually leave me ready to puke by the end of an… Continue

The biggest names in energy bars are generally the worst for you. They want you to believe that what you are eating is good for you and ideal for a runners diet.
To achieve the best results you have to eat a healthy balanced way according to your body. Natural anything gives the body a significant source of minerals, vitamins, protein, etc. Even if it isn't the healthiest snack or meal, if you Continue

I stay active in the winter by doing an at home circuit system . I rotate around my house with my music cranked doing my recumbant bike, my tredmill, my trampoline and then standing ab workout and dancing I also switch it up and use my weights.

How I stay active during the winter months and really all year long, I teach in door cycle classes at two health clubs,plus core/ab classes. I also teach a cardio/sculpt/bootcamp class! On my "off" days I volunteer at a horse rescue sanctuary where I feed, do minor medical treatments, brush,and I get to play with the horses,I also clean the stables (there are 50). I'm active in my 14 year old daughters modeling career as well, taking her to photo shoots, etc. I'm always on the go.

My favourite winter activity, its actually my all-round favourite activity, is running. For some reason though I always look forward to a good run in the wintertime. On a cold crisp clear day or when the snow is falling lightly, its so nice to put on my shoes and winter running gear and head out on the streets. Everything appears to much more magical and serene when its all covered in snow, clean and pristine! Makes the whole running experience so worthwhile!
