What I Eat While Training for the Pittsburgh Marathon Half

Pittsburgh Marathon Nutrition

So let’s talk nutrition. I’m pretty sure I should be sharing what I eat while training for the Pittsburgh Marathon Half. Here’s the deal: I won’t tell YOU what to eat. I’m not a Registered Dietitian or Nutritionist so I have no place doing so! I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, but even as a trainer …

If it’s not one thing, it’s sciatica.

  I feel good. Really good. {Yeah, my mirror’s not dirty. They’re paint spots, okay? Haa.} Well, except for a diagnosis of sciatica this past Tuesday. Sweet baby goodness gracious, does that sh*t hurt. Sciatica stems from something else, and in my case, it’s stemming from the herniated lumbar disc. Yes, that same injury from …

CNN {seriously?!}, You Rock, and a Weekend Run Down.

Whether it was controlling my portions, choosing grilled over fried {or fruit over cake}, working out when I wanted to lounge in bed, I had to set my mind to do it. WILL myself to do it. Such …

Yum. Yum. Paleo.

The other day I mentioned tweaking my diet—and again, by “diet” I’m speaking of the way I eat as a whole, not a “diet-diet” because diets don’t work. {In my own personal opinion concerning my own food consumption of the past thirty-something years, of course. SlimFast, cabbage and liquid diets never got me too far!} …

What’s in Your Cart: The First Edition

I get a lot of questions about what I eat. Y’all are a curious bunch and I love it! But sometimes it’s even more specific such as, “What exactly do you buy at the grocery store, Cherie?, or more simply, “What’s in Your Cart?” Keeping this in mind and wanting to answer the question so …

Planning, committing, making it happen. Go!

Goodness! By the looks of my last few posts you’d think all I’ve been doing was conjuring up my inner kitchen goddess, Chef Cherie, and cooking and eating. Though it may seem like that, I have been doing a lot more! Once I got back to town after visiting Daddy {he’s about to get out …
