Just do it again

By : -

My Precision Nutrition (PN) coach asked me if I would be willing to write a few sentences that speak to my experience doing the PN Coaching program for a second time. Why did I sign up again? What do I value most about my second year so far? It got me thinking, that repeating the […]

I love a good fitness rant

By : -

Renaissance Periodization published a post today called “No more Sugar Coating!” And it is hilarious. And full disclosure, I’m guilty of everything in there.

Consume vs. Create

My time spent consuming vs. creating content has been 99:1 for the last few years. One of my goals for 2017 was to change the balance and create more. I’m late getting started. My friend Clay has started old-school blogging again – no list posts, no single theme – just his thoughts and creations. I […]

My year of Precision Nutrition (PN) Coaching (coaching FAQ) ends on June 30, 2017. I first started my fitness journey back in 2004, with Body for Life, doing back to back 12 week “competitions.” The program worked well, but I did not have a good transition strategy for maintenance. I got into running, then marathon […]

My mom fell, broke her ankle and went from living independently in her own apartment to moving into an assisted living center where her own mom died. I find […]

Certified

By : -

This may come as a surprise to some of you who know I collect (academic) credentials (PhD, MBA, PMP, Salesforce Admin, blah, blah, blah) the way other people collect art or beanie babies or stamps or something. But, once upon a time, September 13, 2012, I signed up for the Precision Nutrition Certification Program. And, I […]
