I’m heading to Denver for my first conference as a ZooFit consultant. I’m excited, nervous, and and anxious.

As many of my friends are aware, Chris and I moved to Seattle for the month of August while he recuperates from his kidney transplant. Having twice weekly labs and twice weekly clinic appointments meant it would be easier to live closer to the hospital than island life allowed.
Finally, I’m finishing up my Principles of Eating Green series. This is the last one, and in my opinion, THE most important one of all. Maybe I should make this number one.
