WorkoutMixWeds

This week’s #WorkoutMixWeds is all thanks in part to my favorite yoga spot in H-town, Black Swan Yoga  and one of my favorite instructors there @awkwardyogagirl. In her class, I’ve done a full yoga session to the Life and Times of Pablo album (yes, I’m a big Yeezus fan.) On Monday, I was again delightfully surprised…

Military Mindset – My 2017 Book Reads

In 2017, I slacked with the libros. Especially reading books related to health and wellness. I’m usually good at keeping up with the latest research and trends.

“Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance”…

Those words uttered by my college basketball coach will forever be engrained in my head and I immediately thought about them as I was considering my 2018 intentions.

6 Tips to Help Stay Paleo on Your Next Flight

  Staying healthy on the road, especially for work travel can be a pain. Most airports (almost all I’ve visited) serve overpriced, commercial junk. If you are lucky enough to find yourself in a city that offers healthy options, you will certainly pay for it because everything in the airport needs to be double the…

Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself *Jay-Z Voice*

Hey there…. again. I started “Paleo In The Streets” back in 2012, when I was first introduced to the Paleo “diet”. It changed my life and perspective on health. It’s hard to explain…. It just made sense. You know “Eat closest to nature.” How could anyone argue against that? I then started educating myself and…
