More gain, less pain in 6 words

It seems that since Pilates joined the fitness craze, we've all got caught up on feeling the burn and pushing through the pain. After all, no pain no gain - right?

Well there's two problems with that. Not only might this push-through mentality make you work harder, but it might also make you gain less from all that effort you are putting into your Pilates workout. 

How can you maximize your workout and struggle less through it? I give you 6 words!

Paleo Diary: Staying Committed

My Tips on Sticking to the Plan and Loving It

It was two months ago when I dived in with full force into the Paleo, well Paleo(-ish), world. By full force I mean that I gave up cow milk in my coffee, the one non-paleo thing I held on to until the very end of my Paleo warm up. Not to say that it's been easy or that there hasn't been any slips. But there has been rewards on feeling more alert, more energized and capable every time I do stay committed.

So here's a quick run down of 6 easy things that helped me stay on track and in love with the Paleo diet.

Always Be Climbing to the Top

How often can you say (speak the truth)

Wow, there is nothing that I'm not already doing for my body! 

There is always something else you can add, do more of or do better. As I see it, the climb to the top is endless – you can always go higher and even higher. And I call it a climb because, when it comes to fitness or wellness overall, it isn't easy and there needs to be ongoing upward progress.

Having said that, last week I realized that I've been taking a nice stroll around the same spot instead. 

So I made a pledge to challenge my body, my culinary ability and my mental stamina. And here's is how it went, the recipes that made it possible and how I made through it.
