I was always a journal-er (-ist? Writer of journals?)

I still have volumes of notebooks and diaries depicting chapters of my life.  At one point in time, in my early twenties, I could go back on any given day, leaf through the volumes of my diaries and see what I was do...

So.  I didn't have time this morning to workout before work.  

That's a lie.

Real talk. 

Not feeling my über leanest right now.  And sure that disappoints me a little bit.  We all want to feel like the best versions of ourselves.  But I'm also not freaking out because I know what to do to get back on track.  I have the tools and nutritional know...

Recent passtime?  Researching nutrition deficiencies.   (I know, I live an exciting life.)  


But one thing is blatantly obvious:


NO ONE is getting enough omega-3 essential fatty acids.

Do you feel a little uneasy walking into the gym?  Does it feel unnatural to take ownership over the weights section?  Well, guess what?  

Me too.  And I am a trainer for fox sake!  

I call it "gym-timidation".
