Watermelon for Breakfast

On hot summer days there is nothing more hydrating and refreshing than watermelon!  I’m loving watermelon season right now. You don’t even need a bowl, just section off a part of the watermelon and grab a spoon!  🙂 Remember to stay hydrated and drink more water than you think you need on these hot days.  Eating foods rich in water, like watermelon, can help you stay hydrated longer. Peace, love and veggies! Lauren  

Walk the Talk

Every year, I have my “numbers” checked, and by that I mean my health numbers.  Internal health.  You see, it doesn’t matter if you have six pack abs or can take everyone to the “gun show” if your cholesterol is through the roof or you are still eating your way to heart disease.  What we put into our bodies is SO important and since I am a coach, a personal trainer and a nutritionist, I find it important, personally, to put my money where my mouth is.  To walk the talk, not just talk the talk.  To be the PROOF

Camping Trip to Lake George

I spent the past week in the beautiful Adirondacks with an amazing group of people.  We swam in the lake, rock climbed, kayaked, hiked, had campfires, saw shooting stars and satellites zooming through the night sky and it was wonderful.  I miss it already.  I miss those trees and those mountains…that fresh air and clear, clean water to swim in. I miss this incredible view… It was my first time rock climbing outside (I did a chimney climb a few years ago but I didn’t have much I needed to do except go straight up- so I don’t really count that
