Last Weekend’s Everyday Paleo Workshop

anaerobic

Thank you so much to everyone who attended my Everyday Paleo Workshop this past weekend at CrossFit Anaerobic in beautiful Laguna Niguel, CA! The staff at CrossFit Anaerobic was awesome and I was beyond impressed with how welcoming and organized everyone was.  Another big thank you needs to go out to Jason Seib, part of the Everyday Paleo Team and co-owner of Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness. Jason was kind enough to speak at the workshop and he rounded out the day with his amazing insight and knowledge.

Stay tuned to the blog for when we will be announcing our next stop!

For fun, check out this quick video of Sarah and Jason in action!

The Aesthetic Goal Conundrum

*Note from Sarah.  Jason Seib of Primitive Stimulus has done it again.  I love this article.  Enough said, now read, enjoy and comment away!!

The Aesthetic Goal Conundrum

To be perfectly honest, the following observations might not lead you to a life altering epiphany.  But maybe they will.  I don’t really have any direct answers this time.  Just a view from different angle that may help you find your own answers.

I would like to make it clear that from here forward I am only speculating and sharing my professional experience.  I am in no way implying that my speculations apply to everyone, and maybe not even the majority.

The Broken Fitness Industry

*Note from Sarah: Jason Seib of Primitive Stimulus is back with a compelling and accurate article about our broken fitness industry and offers much needed insight regarding how to make sure you are working with a trainer who wakes up in the morning with a strong desire to help YOU.  This is a MUST read!!  Thank you Jason!

The Broken Fitness Industry

At the risk of making a few enemies, there is something that needs to be said:  The great majority of the fitness industry produces garbage results.  There, I said it.

Okay, so most of you already knew that, but maybe my insider’s perspective will aid you in deciding where to get fit and who to ask for help.  I’m sure I already sound like an arrogant ass who thinks everyone else is terrible and I’m amazing, but some of the following was gleaned from my own mistakes and you probably don’t live anywhere near my gym anyway.

Latest blog post from Jason Seib

Brace yourself.  I’m coming at you with all guns blazing on this one and you aren’t going to believe what you’re about to see.  First things first, if you haven’t read my diatribe condemning your bathroom scale, please begin there.

Alright, now that you are caught up, let’s revisit Deb from my last post.  Deb has been kind enough to let me exploit her for your education on these here interwebs and I am very grateful.  Showing the world where she started isn’t easy, but she is a kind person who wants to help you and she has accomplished some remarkable things in her health and fitness.

What are YOU chasing – and of course a recipe…

IMG_1482

I used to go to the gym with a mission.  A mission to fall on the ground in a heap, to crawl out of there with every muscle twitching, every fiber burning, every breath feeling like my last one, but it was a victorious feeling because I DID IT.  Then, I hit a big fat ugly wall and my entire life changed.  I will not bore you with the details but I went very quickly from being all or nothing – not only in life but in the gym – to barely being able to drag my tired, sorry, over-trained, under-slept, stressed out body out of bed.   [Read more...]

How Hot is YOUR Kitchen?? – Another cooking demo….

Apparently my kitchen gets so hot that my coconut oil gets, “liquid-y”….

Along with having a lot of fun with our cooking demos, I am also inventing new words, and if anything, giving my family yet another reason to laugh at me!!

In this demo we make Savory Cauliflower Fried Rice, Pork Chops, and my Walnut Pesto Sauce. [Read more...]

Shrimp Flying Saucers…

Yes, name is a bit corny, but I swear the tomatoes in Northern California are so freaking huge right now they remind me of flying saucers after I slice them!!  So, hence the name.  I made this for lunch the other day and Rowan (the 2 year old) ate about half of it, no joke.  Actually, as I type this, I wish I had some more – it was so good!!
