Now that it’s spring, I’m looking for lighthearted listens that I can plug into while getting myself ready for bathing suit season. I recently started listening to the newest John Sandford novel, Golden Prey, and I love the change of pace (literally) that this thrilling mystery delivers.
In his latest book, Wired to Eat, Robb Wolf shares a customized way of eating that may be the key to permanent weight loss and overall better health.
HIIT is fun! (I swear I’m not just saying that.) It breaks up the monotony of your usual exercise routine. My favorite variation so far is the simple sprint, and I love to do it outside on the creek path with my dog. We make it a game together, and honestly, I feel like a kid again sprinting as fast as my body will take me (for one minute at a time).

Marathon season is in full swing and many people are at the end of the road with their training. From here on out, the mental strength becomes more important than the physical. If you are training to run this fall or know someone who is, DON’T TELL ME YOU’RE AFRAID is worth a listen. It’s an inspiring story about how a young girl in Somalia uses running to help her through increasing political and economic turmoil, giving her the motivation and desire to make her country better.
Eating only clean food, doing yoga and meditating every day, walking a straight-and-now spiritual path ... it can all be a bit much, especially when we take ourselves too seriously. JP Sears has set out to change all that. He pokes fun at everything from essential oils to veganism to yoga selfies to having a spiritual guru. It's time to put the 'light' back in enLIGHTenment!

I reminded myself that our bodies take a while to learn new movements - even 25+ years of yoga practice didn’t mean I could effortlessly lift weights, do Pilates, and surf ... at the same time.
