About OneVeganFoodie

Let's see. I am a certified personal trainer (CPT), group exercise instructor, nutritional counselor, and wellness counselor. My training background focuses mainly on getting overweight populations into shape, but I have worked with people wanting to gain strength/healthy weight and agility. I worked with the Army and the Marines for several years before settling into a civilian lifestyle. I'm still adjusting and I really miss it. I also enjoy coaching non-runners through their first running event. I post my workouts on here but remember that you need to seek medical advice prior to starting a new exercise regimine. I also love food. I've been vegetarian for 10 years and 4 of the last years I have been completely vegan. I love food and I love to cook. I follow a strict diet that I do not recommend for everyone, but I really enjoy as it keeps me healthy and helps me to know what is going into my body.

Oh Right…I have a blog

Meaning…I have to write in it.  This is precisely the reason that I don’t participate in fun virtual events like Vegan MoFo.  I would love to, but the whole problem with me participating is that I would have to post, … Continue reading

I really want more…leg workouts ;)

I had this entire post written yesterday and somehow WordPress ate it.  Oh well, clearly I needed to revamp it.  The good news is that I splurged on a new camera.  The bad news is that I haven’t used it … Continue reading
