• The Math Behind the Work-Life Balance

    Whether it’s time, weight or money management — as I grow wiser I’m finally able to see the connections between a lot of life’s “issues.” The problems are all the same, but thankfully, so are the solutions. A lack of experience leads to the inability to change our perspective and understand context — leaving us feeling stuck and frustrated until

  • Fall Cooking Without All the Pumpkins

    Fall is by far my favorite season.

  • All Pulling Meet Recap

    The genesis for last weekend’s All Pulling Meet was a comment on Facebook by Adam Glass. The suggestion was for a meet consisting of all pulls: 2″ dumbbell snatch, clean, 2″ axle deadlift, 3″ axle deadlift, and a Dinnie lift. I loved the idea immediately, but didn’t get a chance to schedule it until recently.
