IHF Photo Challenge | Furry Faces

My Furry Faces Photo Challenge entry at IHeartFaces.com.   This is my buddy, Zoro (“Z”). He’s a bit skittish.  Although he has a few (just a few) emotional issues, I can’t help but wonder if he was abused at some point. Nonetheless, he and I share a special bond. It’s amazing he let me capture

Creativity

Primal Living isn’t just about diet and exercise.  It also represents what it means to live by instincts and our individual and unique talents we were born with, or gravitate towards throughout our lives. In 3rd grade I was introduced to Pablo Picasso.  This was a pivotal point in my life.  His work gave me

“What does it matter what the scale says if you feel like shit?”   I believe everything is meant to be.  This weekend I was blessed to meet Aly, from RX Star.  What a motivational woman!  While I feel I stay positive most of the times, I will admit I’m guilty of falling backwards and

Quick Start Guide to Overcoming Metabolic Damage

I’ve tried to write a Quick Start Guide to Overcoming Metabolic Damage countless times. Because there is a lot of information to share and controversial material, it hasn’t been so “quick”. I’m not one to take information blindly, especially from people I don’t know. So I couldn’t imagine anyone else doing the same. So here’s

Deadlift 3 Rep Max Challenge

My nifty android crossfit WOD tracking app, www.flxfwd.com, has scheduled workouts and challenges in which you can compare your stats with others – friendly competition.  I couldn’t make it to my crossfit box tonight so I thought I’d log this deadlift challenge of 5 attempts for 3 max reps.  Sounded too scrumptious to pass up!

Yes, it’s really been over a week since my last WOD.  Last week was horrible!  Everything and anything that could go wrong, went wrong.  The only day I had time for a crossfit WOD was the day I woke up with THE worst migraine I think I’ve ever had.  I thought I would die…. but
