Today I show you what I do with my produce when I bring it home from the store.
The thought of consuming pesticides with your healthy food choices is not at all appetizing, but do you know why consuming pesticides is harmful?
I recently heard a Dr. talking about this subject and one of the biggest problems it causes is to your gut health. We actually have about 40 trillion bacteria in our body, most of which are in our intestines. These are known as our gut microbiota, and are hugely important to our health.
Fruits and vegetables are great sources of nutrients to our gut microbiota, but the pesticides can kill the good guys.
So wash that produce and add some vinegar to the water to kill the bad guys and keep the good ones.
Since this kills some of the bad bacteria as well as the pesticides it also helps preserve the produce longer in the fridge.

Living in the age of technology certainly has its advantages. We literally have the world at our fingertips. What we can do with a handheld device couldn't be done with a room full of computers only a few short years ago.
However, there are some serious physical disadvantages as well. The use of mobile devices and computers has resulted in a new global epidemic called "Text-Neck." Couple this with our prolonged sitting time and our posture is adapting poorly to age of technology.
Poor posture can bring on many long term problems and exacerbate preexisting conditions such as:
A good function exercise program can make a world of difference in our freedom and mobility.
Here's an exercise you can do to combat this issue.
This quick meal can be thrown together in about 5 minutes. Whether you're watching calories or eating Paleo, this is a good recipe to keep in your back pocket for when you're short on time.

Today is the last day in the 40 Days of Training Video series and I introduce you to my trainer and the most important work I do.
This morning I took my Mother-In-Law to the eye surgery clinic and didn't have time for my normal workout.
No reason not to move though.
I had a choice to sit in a waiting room or find a place to move and record today's video. This was definitely the better choice.
4 quick exercises take less than 3 minutes. I'll do 2 more rounds for a 10 minute workout.
What are you hoping for?
Are you expecting results and not getting them as fast as you want?
Did you start off strong in the beginning of the journey but now feel frustrated because you expected something different?
Every project worth pursuing requires more of us than we think it will.
We think we know what we're getting in to, but unfortunately too many of us quit..
just before our breakthrough
before we get to take in the view at the top of the mountain
before we get to be the people we need to be to make the climb
Sometimes when we start our journey, we're in the foothills and we start thinking, "This isn't so bad." Then we get on the mountain and it takes longer and is substancially different than we expected.
Sometimes when we're on the mountain, we're like a car loaded down with rocks climbing a steep hill. We don'’t go very fast, but...
...as we climb we get stronger
...as we climb we get wiser and start leaving behind the...
It doesn't take long to exercise.
Even if you think you don't have time to workout, you can fit in this 2 minute Tabata.
In the video I'll take you through two-2 minute rounds. The first round is done at full intensity and the second round at modified intensity for those who can't do high impact.
Do what ever you have time for.
I fit 8 minutes of this Tabata in with my strength routine this morning, but it's perfectly good on it's own too.
You might also consider mixing it in with a walk around the block.
So much variety!
So little time!
