What is the right plan?

I currently have a training plan. And I think it’s a good one. (At least, I thought it was.) However, I think I’m in the minority on that opinion. I came up with it after trying to figure out how to work around a completely full schedule that involves 2 days a week at offices

A Day in the Life

In the spirit of trying to eat healthy/live healthy for a week, I figured I would actually write down a “day in the life,” bit by bit. It’ll probably be boring, but enjoy! 6-9AM: roll out of bed and check email. Start working on Cyclocross Magazine, posting and scheduling columns and emailing out people about

Goal of the Week: Clean Eats!

I’ve decided, after this past week of working towards a goal of maintaining not drinking soda for 7 days, that I have an easier time meeting goals/maintaining them if I set a distinct time-frame.  So I’m going to try this experiment of having a “Goal of the Week.”  I’ll post it on Monday, and then

No Dew? No Problem!

I made it an entire week without Mountain Dew, soft drinks, or with the exception of half a margarita (it was Margarita Night!), any caloric beverages at all. Yep, I’m pretty proud right now. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be to give it up, though I realized at restaurants and fast

Sunday was a good day. Why? Honestly, not totally sure. It started out as a serious bummer, driving to my parent’s house in the morning, cloudy skies, drizzling rain, and if I’m being totally honest, a completely insane (and I mean this in a literal sense) gas station attendant that actually asked me if I

Surviving a Bike Fit

A bike fit: the only time where someone can tell you that you have mismatched legs, weird feet, too broad shoulders, and a weird head (ok, that one was when I was looking at helmets), and you still say thank you at the end.  And you mean it. Bike fitters are best when they’re being

Survival of the Fittest

This week has been… interesting thus far.  And crazy-busy! In my non-caffeinated non-sugar-high state, it’s been sort of tough.  But I haven’t been quite as grumpy as I expected to be!  I’m into Day 3, and I swear I can already see and feel a difference.  I definitely have been feeling less bloated and heavy,

Nutrition Overhaul: Part 1

I have a confession: I’m addicted to Mountain Dew. I don’t mean that in a hyperbolizing way, I mean it in an “I get weepy if I haven’t had my daily 2 cans and there isn’t any in the house.”  I’ve been known to choose restaurants based on a Pepsi versus Coke standoff.  And the
