Are you a PIG or a CHICKEN?

“Are you a pig, or are you a chicken?” It was a curious question, for sure. What was once a simple training session had now become a serious discussion on life, and like most of life’s questions, we had no idea of the correct response… As if our blank stares weren’t enough to tell we didn’t have a clue how to respond, again, we were asked, “Are you a pig, or are you a...

Reasons for Stalled Weight Loss

I came across this post on Marksdailyapple.com and I posted it here because I feel that most NorCal clients can benefit from reading it. The article provides 17 reasons why your weight loss may be stalled while following the Paleo or Primal Diet. I have to say that #14 is my favorite because I’ve seen it way too many times! Too many people complain about their lack of progress when...

Chico Fish Market

We all know that getting Omega-3 rich food in our diet is important.  Fish is the food that holds the most omega-3 value.  But, for me, that gets a bit sketchy considering we live inland and fresh fish isn’t exactly readily available.  Sometimes I look at the fish on the shelf at the store and want to buy it, but hold off because I’m just not sure how long it’s been there or...

PAIN

In the wake of our NorCal Pound For Pound Challenge, and our Paleo Challenge, I’m reminded of a quote by one of my old instructors: “Growth is in discomfort. So, tomorrow, like today was, is a new day, with new opportunities for growth. Growth is unlimited. The limits that exist are put there by us because growth is also scary. Growth is uncomfortable. Comfort is for timid creatures....

Why “Max”?

Whether it’s my client’s training or my own, I believe in being MINDFUL of one’s actions, and PURPOSEFUL in one’s actions. In my mind, goal setting is a must. You make a goal, create a plan, and then follow the plan (provided it’s working) until you reach your goal. Adjustments may be made along the way, but the formula is still the same. Now, how do you know if the...
