Movement Matters

Final minutes of the run at Age Group Nationals in Burlington, VT
Our bodies are designed to move. Excessive sitting, an eight hour day qualifies, wreaks havoc on our bodies. Physically and mentally we need to recharge and nourish our muscles and joints with movement. My preffered choice is triathlons and hiking. That does not need to be yours. Zumba, basketball, and walking are all possibilities. The key is to find something you enjoy. With enjoyment comes consistency. With consistency comes results. Those results put you on a path to better health. We then feel better in our bodies and throughout our day. 
In this month's newsletter I offer three ways to your movement on. Hopefully one of these (a destination marathon, a beginner Manchester Road Race training program and yoga classes) will appeal to you. If not, what can I offer that would entice you? I'd love to hear from you. Please email me and let's talk. 
Utah:Destination Marathon Training 

Get out of your own backyard and experience another area of this great big, diverse country. Have you ever been to Utah before? I was there back in 2004, with my friend from Germany, Annett as part of a west coast adventure. I was captivated by the red rocks and bright blue sky of southern Utah. My partnership with Bill Honeck has made it possible for me to return. This time to run a marathon and were are bringing a crew along with us. Join us for a five day vacation, March 28th- April 1st 2013. You are bound to have questions. Seek out answers by reading the FAQs and the Itinerary

Manchester Road Race Coaching

Thanksgiving Day runs are a popular way to start this day of feasting. My Dad and I have a 14 year tradition of running the Troy Turkey Trot. This year, we're changing it up for two reasons. First we now own a home perfect for entertaining our family. Secondly, I've partnered with my wonderful naturopath, Dr. Young (formerly Dr. Gouin) of Connecticut Natural Health Specialists to offer a nine week group coaching program. It's the No-K to Tur-K program. Her Manchester based practice is rallying around this popular 4.7 mile tradition. The kick off meeting is Tuesday, September 25th at the COURTHOUSE Fitness and Wellness in Vernon. It's not too late to sign up. Call the office at 860-533-0179 to register. This program includes:

  • Tailored Training (designed by me!) to get you up and moving
  • 2-3 Evening Sessions for Goal Setting, Nutrition/Meal Plans and a Grand Finale Party the day of the race including prizes and T-shirts
  • 9 week membership to COURTHOUSE Fitness and Wellness
  • Weekly email updates and inspirations
  • All this for $50!

Top Ten Reasons to Add a Naturopath to Your Healthcare Team 
  • Naturopathic training is extensive and in-depth.
  • Naturopathic medicine approaches healing from a holistic perspective that deals with the whole body rather than individual parts. 
  • Naturopathic treatments use therapies that are least invasive or toxic and that stimulate the body's inherent healing system.
  • Naturopathic doctors build relationships with their clients through longer clinic visits.
  • Naturopathic doctors use "Food as Medicine".
  • Naturopathic doctors utilize many different treatment modalities for more effective healing.
  • Naturopathic medicine combines ancient wisdom with modern science.
  • Naturopathic remedies have few side effects.
  • Naturopathic medicine is cost effective.
  • Naturopathic doctors promote prevention as the best cure of all.

Recipe: Zucchini Brownies 
I made this recipe for our family reunion on Labor Day weekend. I was curious to see what Ken's younger cousins would think about the green things mixed in their brownies. They barely flinched and my relatives young and old, gobbled them up. 

The source of the recipe may surprise you. My naturopath doctor, Dr. Young (who I'm partnering with for the Manchester Road Race) included the recipe in my action items, along with supplement recommendations based on blood work. The recipe made its way onto my list as a result of our discussions on sugar and my veggie garden. I hope that this recipe will make its way into your repertoire of sweet treats. 

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1 ½ cup chopped or grated zucchini (to make really small pieces, shred then cut the zucchini)
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips 
  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Combine all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix everything together.
  3. Pour into a greased 9x9 baking pan.
  4. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Thank you for spending the time learning to nourish your health.
