Proper Perspective at Work

Laura

* Here’s another great post by Jason Seib!

Sorry for the silence on my part lately.  EPLifeFit is booming and keeping me quite busy.   Excuses, excuses…

I often preach the merits of proper perspective (here, for example) and today I just want to give you a quick example of what can happen if your head is in the right place.  I would like you to meet Laura.  When Laura first came to me she was an avid runner, tried to “eat right”, and hadn’t ever really spent any time lifting weights.  All in all, she was very much the average person to walk through our door – her head was full of common exercise and nutrition myths and she was unhappy.

Announcing Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness!!!!

Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness

Finally, the time has come to announce and introduce to you:

Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness!!Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness

Over the past several months, Jason Seib and I have been working together to create EPLifeFit, in hopes that this will be the missing link for many of you on your paleo journey.  As trainers, we are both incredibly passionate about fitness and how it should be made to fit into a paleo lifestyle and we both have been frustrated and concerned that we simply could not give you exactly what you need; beyond some futile suggestions and blogs written in the form of begging folks to lift weights and get moving.  Of course the questions keep coming; how do we do it, what do we do, what do we need, where do we go?

Jason and I both have families with three children, dogs, chickens, after school functions, before school functions, businesses to run, and lives to live and we know how hard it can be to make this lifestyle work AND add in a fitness plan, so we created Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness which is designed to work for anyone and the answers are now literally at your fingertips.

EPLifeFit is not just about fitness, it’s a community, a support network, a way to access Jason, myself, my husband who is an award winning chiropractor and mobility expert, as well as a team of knowledgable moderators simply by opening up your computer.

EPLifeFit  is also about lifestyle and nutrition, a way to access information that before we simply did not have the ability to give to you; but now we can. I could go on and on but instead, please go check out Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness for yourself, see all that it has to offer, and once you join, we’ll see you there, ready to help.

As always, Enjoy!

Paleo Talk Episode 22

Hello folks – got another fireball of an episode for ya! The three of us take a good 15 minutes in the beginning to discuss our lives and make a few apologies. We eventually get to business with some great questions from y’all. To add, I would like to petition that we make “y’all” the official U.S. plural second-person pronoun.

-Dain

Inside Episode 22 of Paleo Talk:

  • After tracking behavior of young son – Possible Aspergers diagnosis in future. Wait to introduce Paleo living?
  • 27yr old male wants to know the basic ins and outs of this lifestyle. We don’t go over basics very often, decided this was a good time to do so.
  • Omega 3/6 ratio of nuts and how to not go neurotic with tracking all this stuff. (Hint: dont)
