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...

The #Vitamix Cleanse – Day 2

May 01

Day 2 of my Vitamix Cleanse has come and gone, and it was another successful day!  I was really curious to see how my body was going to respond on Day #2, as I figured it would be the time when it would finally ask, “Ok, what the F- is going on here?”.  But for the most part, I felt great!  And I was (surprisingly)  not hungry at any point during the day. I made a total of five...

The Vitamix Cleanse – Day 1

I just emerged from television pilot season with everything as it relates to health and fitness being turned upside-down on its head.  Working on call 24 hours/day, 7 days a week for most of the month of April always proves to be an enormous challenge when it comes to training and nutrition, and this pilot season certainly kept the tradition alive..  My paleo ways went from being a nearly...

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...

New Goals and Race Schedule For 2013

New Goals and Race Schedule For 2013

Mar 21

With this latest setback with the foot that refuses to cooperate, I’v had to re-evaluate my goals and race plans for 2013. Ironman California 70.3 and Ironman Hawaii 70.3 are on the shelf.   I have to be off my foot for the next 2 months, which definitely eliminates any possibility of doing either of the races.  When I inquired about the WTC’s refund policy as it relates to injury,...
