Jamie and I had a great hike at Tohickon Valley Park Sunday morning.  Lo and behold, it was the day they released the dam and the park was filled with adventurers going down the rapids!  We forgot our phones, so we can't show pictures, but what a wonderful park to hike and enjoy nature!  I am definitely going back!

Speaking of...if you are coming to Scottsdale with me in February, or, even if you are not, I will be training for the mountains on various terrains around our beautiful area.  (I want to make sure I can get up that mountain and enjoy the beautiful view every day that I am in the dessert!)  I invite you to join me!  Updates on my FB page every week or contact me at 412-605-9417 for some good old fashion fun; looking for hills, maybe stadium steps..., heck, maybe the Philadelphia Art museum steps (Rocky!).  Hope you can get out of your comfort zone and have some fun moving and training!  If you ARE going to Scottsdale with me, you get extra special training and coaching from me to make your trip the most satisfying and amazing experience ever!

Ok , so I think at last count, I get about 100 emails a day from various scientific and many not so scientific sources about nutrition, diet, movement modalities, habit change strategies, etc...  Sooo many of them are worthless, except to keep me informed of the (pardon-my-french) crap that you, my peeps, are subject to on the newsstands, in your inboxes, on TV, from friends, etc...  Most are from hackers who are trying to sell you on the next magic pill or easy peasy weight-loss plan.  Guess what?  There is no magic pill - but there can be good information that you can use to open your eyes to how you are treating your body and "who" you are when your eating...  

This article came on my radar and it sparked an interest in me...What do you think?

Are these your most addictive foods?  I'll share a bit of my journey with you...I had to make a conscious decision not to eat cereal anymore (# 15  on the list) because I couldn't stop at 1 bowl...there would be milk left, I would add more cereal, oops, too much, more milk, more cereal... You get the idea... Now I don't even think of eating it, so I don't have that temptation.  Which one (or more) of these is trouble for you?

Many of my clients and peeps ask me for help cooking nutritious meals.  Well, I am not a nutritionist, nor a gourmet chef, but I do have some wonderful tricks up my sleeve that I love sharing.  But, I found that many of you are still just so darn busy that the thought of working, running kids, parents, etc.. around, shopping for healthy ingredients, getting it all assembled and cooked, etc...was just too much for you sometimes.  So I was hearing that you were stopping at fast food, picking up restaurant take-out, or...having a bowl (an endless bowl maybe) of cereal for dinner.  I get it.  So, I have decided to try out some options for my family and share with you on the experience... if it helps bring calmness to 1 family, it was worth it!!

First up  Hello Fresh

Bottom Line - Good, fresh food, easy to prepare.   The Original menu plan was just too much meat for me and my family of 3 with a vegetarian daughter, but the vegetarian option was good and interesting.  I'd do this, but maybe every other week instead of every week
