It’s no secret that I think Michelle Tam, a.k.a. Nom Nom Paleo, is the cat’s pajamas. We’ve been friends for years now, but we “met” under somewhat odd circumstances. Way back in 2010, when I first started thinking about my first cookbook, I thought I would call it “Paleo Nom Nom.” While doing an internet search to make sure that was a good idea, I found myself...

I know I’m kind of preaching to the choir here, but in case you needed a reminder that there is nothing more beautiful than a strong, confident woman, I’d like to introduce you to Mikaela Mayer. Unlike my other “You Really Gotta Meet…” posts, I don’t personally know Mikaela (more’s the pity!), but when I was contacted with an opportunity to do a Q&A, I...

I’m fortunate to know some pretty amazing people. Thanks to CrossFit, Roller Derby, paleo nutrition, this blog, and other wacky/fun/scary/silly adventures, I’m able to surround myself with best-quality people to humor me when I want to lift heavy things and comfort me when my frexcitement gets the best of me. Good things are even better when they’re shared, so you really gotta meet…

One of the great gifts of this life is that along the way, we meet people who change us, show us a new perspective, make us laugh or think or both, and often, without even knowing it, have a profound impact on us.
That’s why I’m delighted to introduce you all to Robin Bruce, a.k.a., Dharampal, a.k.a., my kundalini yoga instructor, a.k.a., one of my favorite people on the planet. Read on to...

I’m fortunate to know some pretty amazing people. Thanks to CrossFit, Roller Derby, paleo nutrition, this blog, and other wacky/fun/scary/silly adventures, I’m able to surround myself with best-quality people to humor me when I want to do The Murph and comfort me when my frexcitement gets the best of me. Good things are even better when they’re shared, so you really gotta meet…

One of the true gifts of running and CrossFit is the amazing people I can call my friends. Meet Alma and Heidi! They ran the ZOOMA 5K this morning – and last year, we all met on the course (and at the after-race coffee bar) during the half marathon. We stayed in touch throughout the year, and I’ve got to give these two major props. Since the half last year, they’ve had a ton of running...

Dave gets nervous when he hears me say the words, “You know what we should do sometime…?” because he knows sometime is code for soon, and more often than not, that thing I want to do is way outside our comfort zone.
One of the unexpected gifts of CrossFit in my life is the amazing people I know – and now they indulge me by playing my reindeer games, too. We call ourselves Team...

Back in May, I did a profile of Lyssa, an Austin-based CrossFitter and freelance writer and fashion maven and general, all-around badass. Since then, she won CrossFit Central’s Fight Gone Bad competition, learned she has an extra-long femur, and launched a few more blogs. No, she doesn’t sit much.
For fashion advice and the inside scoop on where you should be in Austin, visit her blog this is...

Our 19-year-old cat Sesame passed in her sleep yesterday. I hope you don’t mind my indulgence in some stories and photos of the punk rock zombie kitty.
“I think I should get a cat,” Dave said to me one day about 17 years ago. “I think it would be good for me.”
He wanted a kitten, but the sneaky little old ladies at the Marin Humane Society told him it wasn’t...

Fight Gone Bad: 1 Day | 1 Workout | 1 Purpose… and thousands of athletes of various fitness levels all across the country, fighting their way through wall ball, push press, rowing, sumo deadlift high pull, and box jumps, one minute at a time.
Pretty neat, right?
I’m fortunate to know a bunch of badasses that are participating this year, and I’d like to introduce you to some of them…...
