Chronicles of an Iron Belle
Hey there, my name is Kerry (that’s me in the picture up there) glad you are here. I have been a health nut for a while but never truly realized my passion for it until a few years ago. I have been a massage therapist for over ten years and known for my ability to ‘torture’ people. The CIA wasn’t hiring so I pursued an Infant Massage Therapy certification in an attempt to figure out when things start going awry as we develop and stopping them before they cause trouble when we are adults. Person after person would come to me seeking relief from their pain and all I could do was iron it out with a massage, the rest of the work was up to them and I soon found that not too many go to the gym and know what to do or have a personal trainer who gives them a good program. A major contributor to this issue is the lack of communication from the client to the professional out of ignorance of their own body all because we are so busy with the other demands of life to even listen to what our body is telling us. This blog will give you that understanding.

All that background stuff brought me to today: a certified personal trainer who LOVES kettlebell training (my fave move is the Turkish Get Up), loves running, and loves acting like a kid (I have three!). I hope you enjoy the journey with me as we tackle understanding our bodies and how to get the most of your time at the gym, beat injury, figure out what muscles are doing what, and have a few laughs along the way. Understand that I am a massage therapist and personal trainer, not a medical doctor so the advice I share here is strictly that: advice. To see the kind of work I do (with my hunk of a hubby) click here.

Please drop me a line though, I would love to hear all about you!

Take care,

Kerry M. Davis LMT, CIMT, CPT

For those of you that grind your own fresh flour, or even those who don’t but like fresh bread, here are a few whole wheat bread recipes.  I have not mastered the perfect wheat sandwich bread yet, but I’ve included the recipe for my favorite bread machine version, as well as a couple of links to others I’ve tried and liked!





Honey Whole Wheat Bread



3 cups whole wheat flour

1 ½ tsp salt

1/3 cup honey (use less if you don’t like it too sweet!)

1 ½ Tbsp butter

1/2 cup milk

5/8 cup water

1 ½ tsp active dry yeast



Put ingredients in bread machine pan according to the directions of your bread machine.  Select whole wheat setting (although I’m impatient and like the way the crust turns out better with the basic setting, so I just use that!).  Press start.  In a few hours your house will smell delicious and you’ll have a loaf of irresistible wheat bread!



If you happen to have spent grain from beer making (my husband’s favorite hobby), you can add in about a cup of the grains, as long as they’re without the hops.  It adds the most amazing flavor…and nutrition!



Here is a link to a fantastic wheat roll recipe
, also for the bread machine (but recipe works by hand as well).  A portion of the flour called for is bread flour.  We increase the proportion of wheat flour, so we’re using a smaller amount of white flour in this recipe.



And lastly, a great Whole Wheat Sourdough loaf
from one of my favorite homesteading blogs.  We’ll be discussing sourdough, including a sourdough starter tutorial and recipes, soon!



Enjoy your fresh bread this weekend!
