It’s March and if you are like my clients, off-season is in your rearview mirror and you are knee deep into training!  Increased training means increased (or modified) fueling needs.   According to Jeukendrup (2017), “Periodized nutrition refers to the strategic combin...

My ears perked up when I first heard about the Precision Hydration Sweat Test.  I must have this test, I thought!  I am a Sports Dietitian in Arizona, after all, and my clients are endurance athletes - triathletes, runners/ultra-runners, and distance cyclists.  People...

So the big race is over, but your appetite rages on. You know that you need to scale back on food consumption now that training demands are lower, but knowing and doing are two totally different things. I’m currently living this, by the way. I recently trained for and...

128 lbs: Race Weight

9 months postpartum

I’ve now done 3 races, Cactus Man Olympic being the most recent.  I felt AMAZING during this race (even with a Mount Lemmon ride 3 days prior).  I really thought I finished one of the top 3 in my AG.  I was so disappointed to lear...

128 lbs: +3 lbs

Training is really ramping up now.  I’ve been to Mount Lemmon twice, once with Cheryl’s group and once on my own.  John drove me there and back yesterday and was the best damn Sherpa a girl could ask for.  Feeling so appreciative of hi...

2018 is here, people! The first of the year is an awesome time to set new goals, especially nutrition-related ones. It’s time to throw out any frustrations from last year and start fresh.
