Thanks for the question, Bert :) My name is Melissa Higdon, and I created the website and company. My goal is to help people, who want to help themselves, feel better. I am a believer that, if you follow some simple fitness steps, like increasing movement, drinking more water, getting rest, and eating in a healthy manner, most battles we face can be won. I help people build those habits through daily dialogue and coaching techniques. The website will go through a major overhaul and the new "focus" will be on building healthy habits. There will also be a section where users share their journals so that others, who identify with a particular user's battle, can cheer them on, hold them accountable, and share inspiration. I fight rheumatoid arthritis and I am a cancer survivor. I have learned a great deal about making healthy choices for the sake of getting better and feeling better, and I want to pass this wisdom on, while building a community who learns from, supports, and inspires one another.

  • Super Foods

    I get asked a lot which foods give you the most bang for your buck as far as nutrients go. We live in a very fast paced, efficiency seeking culture so if there are such foods as "super foods," people want to know about them! Let me emphasize that a variety of foods is always best. In other words, you don't want to just keep eating the same foods all the time. Think of eating a rainbo..


  • Kale kale and more kale!

    Whats with all the buzz around kale lately? Well, its one of the healthiest veggies out there and I will tell you why! Kale is packed with beta carotene, Vitamin K, and Vitamin C. It also contains Vitamin B6, manganese, calcium, magnesium and potassium. All these vitamins are densely packed into just 1 cup of kale! Kale contains fiber which aids in heart health (by lowering cholesterol) and digest..


  • What food combination is the right food combination

    Can you build muscle by eating a balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fat? I get asked this question a lot. The answer is absolutely! Many people think that you can't build muscle unless you are eating a lot of protein and limiting carbs and fat. It's not the case. You really only need .8 grams of protein per kg body weight baseline. You may need to add in more protein if you are a bodyb..


  • No...no...not here!

    Runner's trots.  Never thought I would say those words, let alone know what they meant. Not until this most recent running season. There I was, out on my 6 mile trail, feeling good and moving along just fine.  Then it hit me in mile 4...oh no...what was going on?  I felt as if I needed a toilet and fast. The pressure was overwhelming and uncontrollable. I was close to some public toilets in ..


  • Duclos Kryptonite ~Aka The 10K~

    My streak of disastrous 10K's reached an all time low on a chilly Sat morning in 2012. For some reason the middle distance classic has been my nemesis and it's only getting worse! There we were, Kim and I, at the old spring training home of the Chicago Cubs doing yet another race together on another cold fall morning.. Nothing new here. Kim is a great 10K runner; unlike yours truly. Everything..


  • Humphrey's Peak Series ~PART TWO~ "The J"

    The setting is the same Northern Arizona trailhead; one year later. The same friends have also returned for another crack at the summit.. This time, 9 more join the merry bunch for the beautiful sights, sounds, and smells of Pine country. But before we even got there I dragged everyone to my favorite Vegan European Coffee house for breakfast. But not everyone was impressed or amused (haha sorry g..


  • Rubs for a lil Zen

    Often times in guided meditation classes or even in group Yoga class, you find yourself in the Lotus position. This of course is when you're seated upright with legs folded one over the other with the hands resting on your thighs or knees. What you do with your hands is of course completely up to you- there are a number of common hand poses and it doesn't matter which you choose. I have taken the..
