I’m not here to bash Whole30, it taught me a lot and there were some huge benefits, even though I told you yesterday I won’t do it again. How Whole30 helped me: I started eating real food and by real I mean not something out of a box filled with chemicals, or food that pretends […]

A couple of years ago a friend told me about the book It Starts With Food. I was feeling run down, I didn’t have energy for my runs and I felt exhausted most days. I was getting plenty, if not too much sleep, but never woke up rested. She suggested I get the book and possibly […]

Ran 4 miles on the treadmill this morning before Colton came downstairs and told me that Simon was gone. I told him not to lie to me, or I was going to get upset. He said Chloe was crying, he was gone, and he wasn’t lying.   I still didn’t believe him – he is […]

One of the ways I continuously help myself stay focused on my goals, is by reading health and fitness related books. It keeps my health on my mind perpetually, all while I learn new information. Yesterday I started Eat Move Sleep by Tom Rath, this morning I finished it. You may have heard of this […]

We are 11 days in to 2015, and I don’t know about you, but right about now  my goals for this year seem hard to focus on. The temperature outside is 18 degrees and I’m dreaming of being on the beach rather than getting outside to run. But focus we must if 2015 is the […]

You don’t have to be blogger or someone who loves instagram, to like social media. Most of us are on it in some form, and while it can be positive and uplifting at […]

Day 2 of the allergy elimination diet my allergist put me on was MUCH easier than day 1. I’m not feeling sorry for myself anymore. Today it seems fun to really know what it feels like to feel good from the inside out. My energy levels are up. I took day two off and didn’t […]

I’ve been getting a plethora of nutrition emails lately so I thought I would begin to talk about it here. If you follow me on instagram you may have noticed a shift in how I eat. Earlier in the year I wrote a post about feeling at war with my body.{http://www.mile-posts.com/2013/04/i-feel-at-war-with-my-body.html} I wasn’t finding all the […]
