I couldn't get motivated. Then this happened...
Not long ago, I almost passed this tiny creature on a rainy stroll through country roads near my home one evening.
I assumed it was just another rock, but something slowed me down as I passed by.
I backed up and crouched down to get a better look.
Nutritional Detox: bad move or wise therapy?
After about a year and a half of taking a break due to an unusual amount of international travel, I've gotten back to my regular seasonal nutritional therapy protocols and practices.
I was working on my digestive strength by way of decongesting the liver and gallbladder. (These organs work hard for us!)

What freedom looks like + NEW PROGRAM
The thing about freedom and confidence around eating, is that they're not as easily measured as, say, a pay raise or counting calories, points, or macro-nutrients.
Numbers are much easier to track down on paper.

The one piece of workout equipment that will enrich your life
I don't mean to brag, but I've been a walker for nearly 20 years now.
I used to go for walks with my mom for exercise around my childhood neighborhood.
Later, I'd walk at night on my university campus (with a fork in hand for protection per the advice of my roommate - this one still cracks me up)
Seasonal Presence & Your Nutritional Selves
I'm so in my element right now. Fall is my season!
I've enjoyed the satisfaction and meditative quality of raking leaves as well as sitting outside with a warm beverage while allowing my eyes to weave in and out of focus staring into rich orange and red bonfire flames.
Walking outside I'm greeted by the familiar sound of treetop branches swaying and crashing their leaves, a sound I've grown so very fond of (When I close my eyes, I hear the ocean...)
