Keep Hoping Machine Running

A few years ago, I stopped making new year’s resolutions because they feel like they run counter to what I’m trying to do: live every day like the best version of myself I can be. However, this set of “New Year Rulin’s” from Woody Guthrie is very charming and sweet. (Click it to see a big version you can read.) I liked Guthrie’s list so much, I thought I’d steal a... read more

New Year’s Eve: Paleo Style

Dave and I have a long-standing tradition on New Year’s Eve: We have a relaxing, “do nothing special” kind of day while the sun is up, treat ourselves to a nice lunch in a restaurant, then watch movies and eat homemade food for dinner. That way, when we wake to greet the shiny near year the next morning, we feel Good. This year, we’re starting our New Year’s Eve day with yoga,... read more

Gratitude and Giving

Before I found CrossFit and yoga and paleo (all of YOU), I was a Rollergirl. I never felt like I completely fit in, but there were two things that made me very grateful to be a Rollergirl: (1) feeling the power of wearing my uniform and skates and (2) the sense of sisterhood among the skaters, not just in my league, but all over the world. I don’t have sisters, but in my imagination, the... read more

Russian Teacakes

You know how some people in dual-language households speak Spanglish (English + Spanish) – and at this time of year, lots of families celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas because they’re lucky enough to have both under one roof? In our house, our holidays are Traleo: half treats, half Paleo. Particularly on Christmas, I take advantage of my year-long deposits in the good health bank, and make the... read more
