I've been really enjoying using my new Timex Move X20 ( ) to track my movements, texts, caller id, and most of all my sleep. Here's a great source to improve sleep patterns. For most adults, about 25% of their nightly rest is deep sleep. ( I also take a supplement called Mintran from Standard Process. My nutritionist recommended it for me due to the following qualities: Min-Tran is a vegetarian product that contains mineral complexes to support emotional balance. Supports a healthy nervous system Mild calmative that helps maintain emotional balance Helps ease the effects of temporary stress Supports the actions of neurotransmitters that regulate mood*

The Power of a early season/New Year purification

I'm 10 days into my yearly purification program ( and I feel fantastic. I've lost all of the holiday cheer that I had managed to put on since finishing the Ironman Worl Championships in October (10lbs). Now I'm back to my normal race weight. I did an 11 mile run this morning without having anything for breakfast and only used water. I felt really strong the entire duration. I am really looking forward to the remainder of my program and 2015.

Staying Healthy

What is your "go to" remedy to stay healthy? I am asked that question many times this time of year. My response is: 1. Sleep 2. Probiotics 3. Healthy nutrition habits 4. Appropriate supplements (if necessary). I have been able to track my sleep patterns recently using the Timex Move X20. I love keeping a record of my sleep patterns. It's very interesting to see the good, bad, and ugly of my nightly sleep. I take a daily probiotic to help keep my gut healthy and fend off the common cold and upper respiratory infections. I try to keep a very simple nutrition pattern that includes nutrient dense choices. I get my blood checked 2 times a year to see where I might need to supplement in order to keep things in balance. I usually find that I am deficient in Vitamin D and B12. So I use the appropriate supplementation to get back into balance. I also try to keep my immune system as strong as possible. So I use three products from Standard Process to stay in front of things. The first is Immuplex, which helps support normal range white blood cell activity. I also take Eleuthero, which helps to support immune system function, promotes vitality, physical, and mental endurance. Finally I use Ganoderma and Shiitake which helps to promote the body's normal resistance function. Stay healthy!
