By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching | April 8, 2011 |

I love yoga and I’ve heard a bunch of buzz about Hot Yoga for the past year but had never tried it. I’m always on the lookout for new workout options so when my daily email from Groupon featured Hot Bikram Yoga in my neighborhood I jumped on it. Tri partner, Christine, and I headed…

I have a shoe problem…

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching | March 27, 2011 |

My new Vibram Fivefinger shoes! I have been told that the first step is to admit you have a problem…I have a shoe addiction! However, I will clarify that my two most recent shoe purchases were necessary rather than frivolous. I’ve been thinking about the swim portion of my triathlon, actually the entry and exit…

Transitioning to a Vegan Diet

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching | March 5, 2011 |

To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art.“—La Rochefoucauld I realize that not everyone can go cold tofu and go vegan overnight like I did! I was that compelled, and really didn’t like milk and eggs and hot dogs and things like that anyway, so it wasn’t a big stretch for…

What a Vegan Eats

Actually, it sucks and blows simultaneously! Just when training was hitting full steam, I got a bug of some sort that threw me into full-on sinus infection/tonsillitis.
