What is the Operation Muffin Top Bootcamp?
Certain food groups (like grains, legumes, sweets, alcohol and dairy) are probably having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try? Do you have some sort of condition (like skin problems, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies or fertility issues) that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms may be directly related to the foods you eat – even the “healthy” stuff. So how do you know if (and how) these foods are affecting you?
The holiday season is filled with temptations, starting with all those little snack size candies that are everywhere for Halloween, to the abundance of sweets, cookies, pies, and endless other holiday treats that seem to follow us everywhere we go during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. Operation Muffin Top has finally come to an end and for most of you was just what you needed to start the holidays off at the top of your game.

I am often asked if it is alright to train on an empty stomach. I think this is a common issue for anyone who needs to get to the gym early in the morning. Eating a breakfast of solid foods such as eggs, veggies, and maybe some fruit before a 6am workout can be difficult, if not impossible, for many people. You’ll have to be up early to prepare breakfast, eat, allow adequate time for digestion and get to the gym for your training session. Even if you prepare food ahead of time, many people don’t have much of an appetite upon waking.Read more...
Hey everyone! Sorry for being so unresponsive the last couple of months, but my schedule has been CRAZY. Between Varsity Soccer practices and games and doing all of my homework, I’ve barely had time to breathe. But I’m BACK!!
I first want to congratulate everyone who participated in this weekend’s Tough Mudder (including my parents). I know how much hard work and dedication you all must have put into it! (Not to mention how much sweat and body temperature you must have lost).Read more...
We did it!! I just want to thank each of you for making this event more special than it was ever intended to be. I got to know some of you in a way that everyday life just doesn't provide the opportunities to do. The memories from this past weekend will always be remembered along with every one of you. An outpour of emotional emails have been sent in by many of you which are extremely heart felt and I hope more of you can provide your personal experience from the Mudder of 2012 in the comment box below. One email that will forever standout in my mind was from Rose who had the chance to overcome her biggest fear. Hear it is...Read more...
