Fox News is at it again. I just found this video on Robb Wolf's website. Unreal!

Watch and comment for yourself....


These types of things make me nervous for the future of food and our health. Supporting your community and farms in your region is becoming more necessary as the government's shady dealings and politics, like the obvious advertisement for the USDA you just watched, are only going to make it more difficult to read between the lines on what you are really eating and how it effects your health.

Educate yourself on both sides of the issue. It is only your health we are talking about here. I cannot stress that enough. It might make you feel crazy at times, but it's better then watching mind-numbing television like most Americans, believing everything you hear.

Now, I totally have to go watch the Royal Wedding because it is far more important then tuning into reality, Really? (her dress was pretty)

At least we still have NPR.

SPRING FEVER & a rolled ankle

Ooohwee, it has been far too long since I have written. It seems to go along with the roller coaster ride that is my life. This includes my diet and my exercise routine. And why is it that as soon as you get in a groove with all that is important in health and wellness that something happens so suddenly to mess it all up?

I rolled my ankle twice in the last month at a time when my training for a marathon in June was picking up in intensity. What hurt more was not my huge swollen ankle, but my motivation. I had finally gotten over the hump of dragging myself out to train, feeling slow and uninspired, to a place where things were starting to hurt so good and felt effortless to fit my run into my busy schedule.

Now, I am focused on what I eat because i have been trying to recover my injury for the second time and with that comes a decrease in the fitness I have been building the last few months. This, like most things in life is called a detour and it happened for a reason, I just have not figured out what it is yet. All I know now is that with minimal ankle pressure, I can still do core and upper body and better yet, can focus on reeling in my diet once more.

If you have come down with an injury and are bored, food tends to be an option as an outlet. Don't let it. Trust me, it has tried to be my form of entertainment during moments of injury, but the best way to stay positive and heal faster is to nourish your body with all that is protein, good fat, veggie, and delicious. Not to mention, you can finish that book you have been reading for years or exercise the mind. That is what I am trying to do on my end.

Until next time, wish me a speedy recovery.
