Living with PEDs Shuffled back to Dr. Whatshisname for the results, got my print outs and here’s the scoop! Magnesium, zinc, iron, red cells, white cells, blood sugar, all good! Vitamin D on the other hand, MARGINALLY DEFICIENT! Yeah, I was kind of hoping it was deficient. Because everyone wants some deficiency! Or …

Decoding CrossFit: A Recipe to Success

Stronger VS Lighter – Friends or Foes?

Ever see “Body weight” on a workout and cringe a little bit? I do. At 5’8″, I hover somewhere between 190 and 200 pounds. As a woman, I’m still challenged by many ‘body weight’ lifts. While squatting and dead lifting my body weight (and then some) isn’t an issue, I …

Do You Struggle With Chronic Disease?

Fish Out of Water?: Visualization for swimming CrossFitters

There I was, 6am, struggling through my swim practice as the emerging Texas sun painted oranges and pinks across the sky.  Beautiful pool, lovely peaceful setting except for the sound of my flailing arms and sputtering.  Like lots of CrossFitters, I’m a land-lover.  Simple really.  No pool at the box, so I …
