I know people want to hear the […]

BlogFest, IDEAWorld, Nutrition, thevalentineRD, RD,CDE


On Thursday, July 16th at 2pm PST, I’ll be presenting “Busting the Top 5 Nutrition Myths” at IDEAWorld BlogFest 2015.  To say that I’m excited (and nervous) is a major understatement!

When you’re a fitness enthusiast with a chronic injury, you constantly battle to keep your body from pain.   You hate it, but your fitness life does become a cycle of good days and bad days.  On January 30th I hit a particularly bad day and I’m still recovering from it (that ugly spinal curve in the x-ray below is evidence of my QL muscle shortening and putting me in considerable pain).

X-ray, back injury, spine, L4/L5

Hey there!  How are you?  What’s been going on?

OMG! Duran Duran Are Coming, Duran Duran Are Coming!

Yup, I’ve been MIA for an entire week.  Sometimes the blog takes a back seat to everyday life (presentations, work, family stuff etc.).  You might have also heard the news that Duran Duran frenzy has begun!  Take a look at how awesome the boys are looking these days!  Nobody can work white skinny jeans like the newly svelte SLB, amirite?
