What 1 Year of Training Strongman Looks Like plus Carb Cycling and Stacy’s Mocha Protein Smoothie Recipe

This time a year ago I declared I wanted to be strong. And I’ve certainly accomplished that goal! In fact, in less than one year I’ve trained hard enough to believe I may be able to earn a ticket to Nationals by competing in two upcoming contests this summer, where I’ll have a chance if I place top 3 in either contest. I’ve surpassed all my goals,...

Guest Post: Summer Innanen on 5 Steps To Loving The Body You Have Today

I met Summer at PaleoFX this year while we shared a barbell during the Women’s Dead lift and Back squat class. She was spunky and bubbly in an adorable way. After following her on Instagram and seeing her series on body love and acceptance on her blog I asked if she’d share some of her powerful words with you all. I can’t thank Summer enough for writing...

Book Reviews: Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health, & Life, Ben Greenfield and Powerful Paleo Superfoods, Heather Connell RHNC

One of the great things about living a Paleo Lifestyle is that its never stagnant. Most people who consider themselves “paleo” use it as a template, but they understand that while in some ways it may be based on what our ancestors ate, its really more about what we should eat based on current science. The cool thing about that is that what we know about...
Building Emotional Strength through StrongWoman Training

Building Emotional Strength through StrongWoman Training

In January of 2013 I bravely stepped into a CrossFit box and faced my fears to start the sport of fitness. For nearly a year I WOD’d with the unadulterated support and encouragement of everyone in my life. Although I enjoyed many aspects of CrossFit, including the community and especially the lifting of heavy things, I really struggled with the lengthy metabolic...

George Bryant is one of those special people. We first met him when Stacy and George shared an L shaped...

What we’ve been digging on lately…

What we’ve been digging on lately…

This past week we celebrated our youngest son’s 4th birthday which ALSO coincides with our 4th Paleo-versary! Yup, it was little Wesley who inspired our transition to a paleo lifestyle 4 years ago on the day he was born. I was researching dairy-free desserts because I noticed that if I stayed dairy-free while breastfeeding, my boys had less tummy upsets (colic)....

Our 4th Paleo-versary!

We can’t forget this date because it happens to coincide with the birth of our baby, Wesley. As the story goes, Stacy checked out The Paleo Diet by Loren Cordain because the phrase “paleo”...

It has been a...
Changing the Game

Changing the Game

Years ago we used to actively blog a lot about our day-to-day life. Back before there were over 100k social media followers and several media platforms that we managed, before the blog was “a resource for the community” we used to share our lives; before we had a team of people employed to help us keep up. In preparing for this today’s newsletter...

I Am NOVA’s Strongest Woman

I Am NOVA’s Strongest Woman

I’d like to start this story back in 2010, when I weighed 336lbs after the birth of my 3rd child. After a lifetime of morbid obesity, the 3rd pregnancy had been extremely difficult. Early on I’d almost lost Wesley, which I haven’t ever really talked about, and through my 2nd and 3rd trimester I was incredibly overburdened with my own weight – even...
