New location, new challenges

Hello friends! Sorry I was not able to post a workout last week. As I mentioned in the previous video I moved from Austin back home with my dad to save money and get his health back on track.

Those of you that followed our journey 3 years ago know I moved back home before when my dad had a pre-cancer scare. I got him in the best shape of his life and the doctors didn’t need to see him but once a year. After living with him for a year I moved to Austin to continue on with my life. And he fell back into his old ways, stopped eating healthy, and is now withering away. Moving back home gives me another opportunity to set him on a healthy track. Again.

Hopefully it will stick this time! 

(update: I lost my dad in June 2019)

Living back home has its challenges. I have no space to film workout videos except outside. When the weather is nice I will start that back up! In lieu of making workout videos I will probably start doing FAQ videos again since this is where all that started (remember the horrible green countertops?)!

So I’d love to hear from you about what topics you’d like me to discuss. Got a question? Leave it in the comments or shoot me an email.

As you know I have a lot to say and I’m not afraid to voice my opinion on topics in the vegan and fitness realm. So let’s have fun with it!

I’ve also decided to start a new series on the blog called “Magazine Recipe Redux” where I pick a recipe from a fitness magazine and veganize it to make it healthier. You would think fitness magazines already have healthful recipes that help people reach their goals but I have found that’s not always the case! I’m really excited about this new series because it will get me creating in the kitchen again and I have my dad as a guinea pig 😉

Other awesome things!

I spoke at Healthfest the weekend before last and was in Austin for Texas VegFest this past weekend. So much traveling! It was soooo much fun and I got to meet some pretty awesome people, like Rich Roll and Dr. Garth Davis, and hangout with my colleagues and friends. Put Healthfest on your calendar for next year because it’s a must-attend weekend conference!

Gene Baur from Farm Sanctuary will be on The Daily Show tonight! This is huge! Be sure to watch and record it!

Driftwood Magazine is a new publication for the sophisticated vegan. They have a Kickstarter going and I hope you can donate a little something to help get this new magazine off the ground! The more vegan stuff on the newsstands the better!

You can still subscribe to my magazine and help us go to print next year! More details about the first issue can be found here. Definition is the first magazine of it’s kind! It would be an honor if you subscribed and shared it around. All the money we receive from subscriptions will go directly to printing and distributing our first issue next year. But we can’t do that without your support!

As always, I want to produce content that YOU want so be sure to drop me a line, leave a comment, or stop by my Facebook page and let me know what you want to see on the blog!
