The #Vitamix Cleanse – Day 3

The #Vitamix Cleanse – Day 3

May 02

Day 3 of my Vitamix Cleanse has come and gone and I successfully made it thru 3 days of juice fasting.  I almost cracked last night……I went to my Vintage 1 class last night at UCLA (I’m getting my Wine Education and Management Certificate), and like we do every week we tasted 6 different wines.  Despite using spit cups, I’d be a liar if I said that there’s...

In late 2012, Team In Training’s Ironteam Los Angeles lost one of our own when our dear friend and fellow teammate/athlete Marisela Echeverria was tragically taken from us in a bike accident as she trained for Ironman Arizona.  I have yet to write about this unbelievably painful loss on this blog.  Sometimes the words are just hard to come by, and this is one of those things that I found...

My heart is broken.  On what was a perfectly routine and unassuming attempt to drive past Harrison Barnes in a critical game as the playoffs rapidly approach, we’ve come to the end of an era in Lakers basketball. It hurts, it makes me feel sick to my stomach, and I almost can’t believe it.  I remember this feeling, and I was hoping I would never ever have to feel this way ever...

The Road To Paleo – Part 1

The Road To Paleo – Part 1

Apr 12

The state of my well being is completed dictated by the food I eat.  Its really that simple.  When I eat processed, sugary, and nutritionally deficient foods, I feel like complete dog shit.  There is such a direct correlation between my mood and what I eat that if you catch me with a case of the grumps and asked me what I had for breakfast, you’d know exactly why I was being such a pill as...

On The Outside Looking In and Dreams of Ultrarunning

Mar 24

Its only my first weekend on crutches, and I’m already jumping out of my skin.  I’m not going to lie, this weekend has been tough.  Not only has it been tough because I’m hopping around on two sticks that are chafing the crap out of my armpits and making everything a complete pain in the ass, but its been tough because so many of my former TNT Ironteam teammates are out there...
