Dirty or clean?  That is the question!  No, I'm not talking about the laundry...I'm talking about nutrition choices! Moving into a nutritious & healthy rest-of-my-life starts with knowing when to say "no" and when to say "yes"!  Saying "no" to dirty food and saying "yes" to clean food is the beginning of a healthy lifestyle, which is my goal, thanks to the Be Healthy Challenge!  Rainbows have always been a favorite of mine ever since I was a kid.  I love the brightness and cheerfulness . . . [View Full]
baby furlEat the "RAINBOW" - that's what Dr. Travis Owens told everyone at the nutrition class at Kroger's on Hwy 96.  Eating the rainbow means eating more and different vegetables, picking something from every color of the rainbow.  This is a real challenge for me.  I am not a vegetable eater.  I'm working on it.  I have already made some changes - thanks to Dr. Ashley Woods and the things she suggested.  Changes that I made this week after listening to Dr. Travis - almond milk, reading  . . . [View Full]
Over the past couple of weeks, we have learned so many ways to improve our health by eating for success.  One of my struggles in my journey toward fitness is developing a healthier relationship with food.  In the past I have tended to use it to medicate emotionally or as a "reward" after a tough day, rather than seeing it for what it truly is - fuel.  It can be a little overwhelming learning about ALL the ways I really should change my diet, but breaking that down into smaller steps and setti . . . [View Full]
    Another week in the books for the Be Healthy Challenge 2015.  It was a week of hard work at Chadwicks Fitness.  With all the hard work has come results.  I feel better, move better and have an overall better attitude.  I find myself looking forward to seeing the team at 7am on Mondays , Wednesdays and Fridays. We met with our sponsor, Haute Dogge and got a great tour of their facility.  These folks love what they do.  There were a couple of very happy dogs being pampered the day  . . . [View Full]
Anne Baum: The Adventures Continues – Roadside Points of Interest  Sponsored by major contributors to the entire Be Healthy Challenge, Elements Massage Franklin and Mountain High Outfitters. They have made a huge commitment to the quality and success of this challenge. I can't thank them enough!!          I can’t tell you how many times I’ve taken a road trip from Nashville to St. Louis, or Denver, or Orlando and never, or rarely, stopped to visit one of those roadside points  . . . [View Full]
With all the talk about what we should and shouldn't eat, I couldn't help but laugh when I found this card. I'm not one for crazy restrictive diets, but I know that the more I can eat from the earth - like they did in the Bible - the better. As we near the half-way point of our Be Healthy Challenge, it's easy to get a little burnt out on all that goes into a healthy lifestyle - the workouts, the meal planning, the logging, the posting. Adrenaline from the exciting start has worn off, and the  . . . [View Full]
I just got back from a wonderful family wedding! The afterglow of celebrating with family is a joy like non-other.  I wish I could carry it with me always.  Several times over the weekend we shared this phrase as part of an inside family joke "Every Journey begins with a first step."  You had to be there to understand the humorous side of it but the serious side is spot on.  Every time you begin a journey, a trial, a challenge; it always begins with the first step.   Right now I am tak . . . [View Full]
Week 5 -- this was a hard week for me. On one day I weighed in, and my number was three tents higher than last week. It wasn't impossible-- but suddenly I felt the intense need for serious scrutiny. I'm wanting to be really successful. I have incredible trainers, Richard and krista at iron tribe, and a great team, and I'm so thankful to Renee Yarborough for having this dream of challenging teachers. I am so thankful for mountain outfitters and massage elements Franklin for standing with us in th . . . [View Full]
In addition to the three-days per week workout routine participants in the Brentwood Home Page Be Healthy Challenge commit to, another huge aspect of the program is altering how we view the foods we eat in order to gain proper nutrition to fuel our bodies for those workouts. Dr. Travis Owens of 100 Percent Chiropractic in Franklin led a guided tour of a local grocery store emphasizing the fresh produce section, health food section, meat, dairy, and frozen food options and alternatives we sho . . . [View Full]
Week 5 of the challenge has been great! I have learned so much on this journey and the grocery tour with Dr. Owens was definitely eye opening!  Learning some new ways to cook and introduce healthy foods into my life! Excited to see what the next few weeks have in store. 
So, this week capped off another great bit of training with Carter Hayes at Quest Performance Training. Another notable bit was another hugely informative session (or two) with Dr. Travis Owens, speaking on nutrition. This week Dr. Owens took us all on a grocery store tour. Thanks Kroger Franklin for having us...luckily they have a great "healthy" area of the store, and a wonderful produce section, since we turned so many innocent bystanders from the "bad" parts of the store...can you say proces . . . [View Full]
Almost half way there! In week 5 of the Be Healthy Challenge, Dr. Travis Owens with 100% Chiropractic graciously gave up his time to take us on a tour of the new Krogers in Franklin.  I have shopped Krogers a gazillion times feeding a family of 6 but this was a completely new approach.  Dr Travis is trying to teach us how to be serious about nutrition and not trust everything on the shelf- even when it has no business being in the health food section. The first stop was fresh produce. The k . . . [View Full]
This was a busy week 5!  I played catch up on Dr. Travis Owen's with 100% Chiropractic session about the myths of nutrition and did the grocery store tour.  There has been a big focus on nutrition in my household as of recent.  My husband recently began a new job where he has to take his lunch to work (instead of having the free company catered lunch!), so we have had to focus more on meal planning throughout the week and having a variety of quick and nutritious items around the house.  Pre . . . [View Full]
