Change the Tone

I usually try to be a little more on-point with my posting schedule, but to be honest, nothing good was coming out of these nimble fingers in the last 72 hours – hence the delay. I know the deal is when things are rather sub-par in your own life you are supposed to garner a

Ginger Peach Paleo Pancakes

One of my favorite things in the whole world is the pancake. No joke. Right up there with puppies. I am also very particular about my pancakes. I don’t dig those “light and airy” things that feel like you aren’t eating anything. No. I like to be very aware that I am consuming pancakes. They

The Pursuit of Success

I was sitting around with two friends this weekend, chatting about life decisions and the choices that had lead us to our current paths. Not to toot our own horns, but we are a tri-fecta of intelligent women, and yet we have all chosen paths that may not always be associated with the top tier

Negativtity and the Unloved Pushup

This workout is not really my general style. It isn’t super explosive, and it is totally devoid of the burpee, and yet it is such a surprising kick in the pants. You are going to read it and be like, meh, but I warn you, a student of mine’s husband had to take off her

V-Ups

The Rundown…The V-Up is the problem child of the sit up and the leg lift. They have the ability to start friendly – your legs are straight, your arms are straight, you are relishing in your core’s ability to unite your fingers and toes above your body – and then you get slapped in the

Make the Choice by Mad Wellness

Make the Choice.

As I lay on the floor in the middle of the gym, seeing some of my students run by my wrecked self, I became acutely aware of the fact that I had just got owned. It was a day when I would’ve possibly been better served taking a nap than going to the gym, or
