What Happened To Lefty?

A couple weeks ago I went off the radar.  I wasn’t CrossFitting, I wasn’t cooking, and I wasn’t posting.  A bunch of stuff has been happening, and here it is in no particular order … For the last couple months of CrossFitting, my body wasn’t getting the results I wanted from the workouts, I felt [...]

Just to mix it up a bit, I decided to workout with a trainer this week instead of my normal CrossFit routine.  I met him on the Santa Monica stairs, he was cute and asked if I wanted to workout with him, so what’s a Cheek to do??!  As I’ve experienced before, whenever anyone hears [...]

This past week in Los Angeles we had blustering winds, sunny hot weather, cooler misty clouds, and an overcast muggy day.

This delightful little pile of mush is my new powerhouse go-to breakfast!  As some of you may know I recently found out I have a raging allergy to egg whites.  I was annoyingly breaking out with acne despite my “healthy” diet.  I’m happy to say cutting the eggs down to once or twice a week [...]
