    My New Refinery29 Show #BeABadass – Episode 4: How To Master Bull Riding!

    Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 12.31.00 PM

    Grab this week by the horns. For me that meant grabbing a mechanical bull’s horns. Let me tell you that this was one of the most challenging feats I’ve faced. Staying on without falling off on the maximum Level 10, was HARD…but not as hard as I was squeezing my gams into the sides. I couldn’t walk for a good 4 days after this. But I did it!!!!!! #MotivationMonday

    You’ve Got What It Takes!

    crossfitCaliRegionals

    So I’m here at The CrossFit Games Regionals, to cheer on a few of my coaches who are competing, and I am absolutely inspired by these incredible athletes.  I was checking out some Reebok gear in between heats, and there I was pushing a sled. Ha!

    I was glad to see this picture, as I needed to be reminded that we are always a work in progress. Here in this photo, I was feeling my best. Strong and capable. Because of a lot of work travel and a minor injury, I haven’t been able to train as often as I would like, and my eating has not been on point (understatement! yikes!) Look, sometimes we feel on our A-Game and other times, anything but our best. That is ok! In fact, that’s the beauty of life!

    Need some motivation? Start with an attitude of gratitude. Love yourself right this moment exactly how you are. Then surround yourself with those who make you want to be better. Silence all the noise (even the noise from your own mind!), and tune-IN  all the positivity. You have everything you need to be your best! And remember, it’s about progress, not perfection.

    Paleo Passover!

    IMG_1030

    I am pumped to bring my Paleo Chocolate Cake Bites topped with my homemade Fit To Feast vanilla frosting over to my Passover seder tonight, because these grain-free badboys are naturally kosher for Passover. Thank you Paleoful, for letting me be one of the first to test out your newest Paleo baking mix! If you are keeping kosher for Passover this week or you just want to ditch the dairy and grains, here’s a sweet recipe for your sweet tooth.

    Here’s what you need for the cake:

    • One pouch of Paleoful’s chocolate cake mix
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1/2 cup coconut  oil
    • 2 tsp vanilla
    • 1/4 cup + 2 TB of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

     

    Directions for cake:

    • Preheat oven to 350° and grease 8 inch cake pan.
    • Combine all ingredients and bake for 30 minutes
    • Cool completely before frosting

     

    Here’s what I used for my vanilla frosting:

    • 1 cup palm shortening
    • 1/4 cup raw honey
    • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
    • 2 Tsp vanilla
    • 4 Tbsp arrowroot powder
    • 4 Tbsp coconut flour
    • 4 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
    • 1/4 tsp sea salt

     

    Directions for frosting:

    • In a mixing bowl, combine everything except melted coconut oil
    • Blend with a hand mixer until everything is well mixed
    • Slowly drizzle coconut oil in while mixing on high and then mix everything together

     

    Enjoy and feel proud about your Paleo prowess!
