I just got home from an all day triathlon symposium in Richmond, VA. It was a long day, 8am-5pm, but I love going to symposiums. They are an awesome way to connect with like-minded coaches, athletes and learn the newest and greatest in triathlon training, injury prevention, nutrition, etc. That being said, today there were
Too many of us derive our emotions and self-worth from food. I want to tell you to STOP IT! It’s time to start thinking of food as fuel, something that is going to make you a healthier, stronger and faster athlete. This is also one of the things David, the owner of LiveNowFitness and I
A lot of people have heard that after you’ve been on a course of antibiotics, you should eat more friendly bacteria. Often this comes in the form of yogurt. We all know the Activia commercials with Jaime Lee Curtis. I haven’t seen one in a while, but I bet you remember them. She was always
So many people have a hard time fitting in breakfast. Between an early morning workout, getting the kids up and out the door, and getting to work on time, things can be a bit rushed. I love breakfasts you can take on the go, so the easier the better. As doctors and dieticians have been

I’ve wanted to write on these topics for the past few months, but have struggled with putting my thoughts down on paper (or the computer). As the months have come and gone post surgery, I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on my life and my athletic drive. The reason I think I’ve struggled
I can’t believe it’s been a few weeks since I’ve been on here. I have been busy, but geeze, time flies. Today marked a new beginning for me post surgery, and while it was a small step, I’m moving in the right direction. I finally got to get in the pool and swim for a
I’m certainly on a breakfast kick this week, and it could be because I’m actually home this week and on a Saturday. Normally I work Saturday, but this weekend I’m working tomorrow. Tomorrow I’m doing a nutrition clinic for athletes in Bethesda, MD if anyone wants to join us. Nutrition clinics are the best part
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Often I’ll have a bowl of oatmeal for dinner if I haven’t gone to the grocery in a while, or don’t feel like preparing a more elaborate meal. Plus, there are a lot of benefits to oatmeal.
