How I love thee

How I Love Thee I left the house yesterday … without my Apple Watch. And what actually went through my mind was, “damn it, I have two workouts planned today and neither of them will be logged.” I admit, for a moment I felt cheated. I asked myself the question that I...

Chicken Shit

Chicken Shit I was standing in a 7-layer metal bowl, my bare feet firmly planted in the cool, gold-colored metal. The room was bright and airy with only the faint noise of the frenzied Nepalese traffic in my ears. “Close your eyes,” the large man said. I complied. A...

The absolute best advice on stress you’ve read

How many articles on stress relief have you read? It’s OK to admit, since even if you’ve not tried to read any it’s impossible to pick up a printed news source of any kind without hearing the latest “best” way to deal with it and/or prevent it in the first place and...

Bushwhacking and Pole Dancing

Two things happened in the last week that reminded me about a lesson we all like to lecture on but generally suck at executing. Before I get to that, here are the two things. First, a new client of mine managed to make it through a very difficult bushwhack last...

Lots of people don’t like me

An interesting and sort of funny thing happened last week. Someone reached out to me via Facebook in response to a recent blog post responding to a lecture by a registered dietitian. She reached out to me without solicitation, requested to join my Healthy Adult...

I love you, Oprah, but …

It’s not that I ever watched her show(s), but of course she is much more than a talk show host. Over the years, I’ve seen many highlights from her thousands of interviews, read and watched her commentary on any number of topics and people. She’s Oprah. A single name...

Lecture by a registered dietitian

I was going to write about Oprah this week. Following a sports nutrition lecture earlier this week by a highly regarded registered dietitian who works for hundreds of college athletes, Oprah will need to wait. On the one hand, there is the conventional dogma espoused...

Lighten up. Have a drink.

A friend of a friend, at 45 years, has never once in her life had a drink. A friend’s mom defends her can of Coke a day by claiming “at least she doesn’t drink.” Another friend decided when we were teenagers she would avoid alcohol for fear of following in her...

Nudist Gyms … for Consideration

I have a friend who wishes he could work out naked. He wants everyone else to be naked, too. Is he a freak? Not at all. He’s simply fascinated with muscles and, in particular, muscles in action. He has a great appreciation of all forms of the human body, but...

Lessons from the Trail

I went on an amazingly breathtaking and challenging bushwhacking trip this past weekend. The group was slightly larger than normal - 31 hikers from 4 states - and led by arguably the midwest’s (really the country's) best outdoorsman who manages to dissect rugged and...

Pink Ribbons Be Gone

Thank heavens we are less than a week away from the end of October and the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. (I meant that.) The runs and walks donning pink ribbons, t-shirts, faces, treats and decorations will finally slow to a crawl, as will the millions and...
