College is a crazy time. You are stressed out of your mind at different points, but you are also happy and more excited about life than you’ve ever been. The friends you are making will more than likely be lifelong friends. For the most part you are short on time, sleep and money. You are on your own. Your beliefs are being shaped. You are figuring out who you are. Kinda like a trial run for real life. So, I figure that if you can maintain a healthy lifestyle for the majority of your college years then you have more going for you than 99% of those you are going to school with! (And a huge step forward on life).
From fat free to gluten free, the marketers have done it again. Slap the gluten free label on your product and suddenly it has become healthy. Chips and Pretzels? They’re gluten-free and therefore, guilt free! Sugar filled, soy based chocolate cheesecake is now a healthy option. Even foods that never contained gluten to being with, like guacamole, are capitalizing on the trend by adding “gluten-free” to [more ...]
When my daughter saw the eggplant in this week’s CSA box she said “PLEASE, can we have eggplant parmesan?” She loves Italian food and really likes eggplant parmesan. I wanted to get some protein in there too and in all honesty am too lazy to think about making eggplant parmesan AND a protein dish, so eggplant parmesagna! We have not had lasagna in about two [more ...]
“I thought CrossFit was something for the elite athlete. I have watched it over the years on TV – always in awe of their strength and endurance. CrossFit Talon provides an environment that ALL levels of athletes feel welcomed and accepted. There are athletes in there training for the games. They are amazing to watch. And then there are people like me – a mom, wife, and athlete at heart. I am so excited to find something I can do that makes me a healthier, more complete person inside and out. Something that wakes up my competitiveness and makes me feel young again. I am thankful for Talon.”

For those of you who read my email last week on the “Beaty County Products” and did search after search on what the heck THAT is…I am very sorry I can’t type;) I would blame it on autocorrect, but Volo doesn’t even have autocorrect, so that one was ALL ME! So…here is the deal with Tara’s ladies’ get together on Tuesday, December 3rd at 7pm:
To start, it is “Beautycounter Products.” For those of you that know us well, you know how “clean” we eat. I often have newbies ask me if we are 100% Paleo, and even though I never thought I’d say this, the answer is getting closer and closer to yes. Except for the occasional adult beverage, I no longer crave the foods I once though I would never give up. I just feel better eating this way, and have no desire to go back to the way I used to feel. Thank goodness I have a husband that feels the same.
Carla felt something tweak, but continued through basic training. After awhile, the pain got worse, and she was told at the time that she would never be able to run long distances again. “If someone tells me I can’t do something, it only makes me want to do it that much more,” she explains. By 2011, she was training with the Army Ten Milers, and in September of 2012 she ran her first Half Marathon.
There are far too many media outlets that are ready to tell us what we should look and feel like based on the latest trends. We are so quick to make excuses for our muscular quads, defined shoulders and arms…to excuse away the “athletic build” we should be proud of, because someone, somewhere said women should not be muscular. Unfortunately in mainstream media that belief stuck. The incredible thing about what we are doing here at CrossFit Talon is redefining that on our own terms. The way we look and feel is a byproduct of what we can DO!
