Well, that tittle makes me feel like I should be part of S.H.E.I.L.D. I wouldn’t mind joining S.H.E.I.L.D. but I am not sure what I would bring to the team. But a las I am just using the letters to represent my health activism.

H – Hemp. This is what I’m using as my current protein powder. I am always trying to get more protein and I love throwing this into a smoothie.

E – Eating! I love to eat and due to my celiac disease I need to be careful what I eat. No gluten for me!

A – Agua. I drink water all day. I live in the desert and run outside all year round so I definitely need more than some may. I truly believe in the power of drinking water. If you don’t like plain water, add some cucumber, citrus or berries!

L – Logging. I log my food, sleep, daily activity and exercise with myfitnesspal and fitbit. It helps to keep me on track and in line (so I can eat all the foods!).

T – Training, both strength training and training for races. You can’t just go out and run 13.1 miles. You need training to help get you there.

H – Hiking. Although I don’t do it as much as I’d like to I do love to be out on the trails. You’d think with all the great trails and mountains here I would do it more often but life gets in the way. It is easier to run in my neighborhood then drive to hike.

What would your letters stand for?
