What we eat and how we feel are directly related. Think about the last time you ate that extra serving of desert, devoured the snack table at a party or had those 4am drunken Cheetos. How did you feel the next day? I’m guessing not so great.
If you’ve noticed there hasn’t been a blog post in well over almost two months, I apologize for the disappearance. It was for a good reason though as a lot has happened in the past 60 days.
We all have fears, but it’s in the ability to trust ourselves that we are able to overcome them.

It really got me thinking about how the fear of trusting ourselves can hold us back.

Man the weather this winter! From 60 degrees one day to waking up in a snow storm the next. I don’t know about you but my food cravings are all over the place. At least you can always rely on a good soup to hit the spot, no matter the weather.
Over the past two months of flexibility and handstand training I’ve learned more about my body than all my grueling hours at the gym. Instead of making gains by upping the amount of weight I can lift, I’m making them with balance and stability.
