Chronicles of an Iron Belle
Hey there, my name is Kerry (thatís 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 Ďtortureí people. The CIA wasnít 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,

Boy do we go through a lot of vinegar these days!  Over the last few years I’ve been reading and learning about natural cleaning.  After giving birth to my son, I just didn’t feel comfortable with the (sorry) nasty yellow toxic stuff that I had been using.  But I found out that there are a lot of natural (and cheaper) disinfectants.  Vinegar is one of them!  Vinegar is healthy, non-toxic and safe, and has a lot of uses.  Here are just a few that I have discovered (and now you know why we go through so much vinegar lately!):







1.  Disinfectant – Vinegar is just as good of a disinfectant as many of the synthetic cleaners, and you don’t have to worry about your kids or pets licking the floor afterward (but that NEVER happens).  It kills bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew.







2.  Homemade drain cleaner







3.  Fabric softener – Use it just like you would use your fabric softener, but without the chemicals!







4.  Adding a yummy zing to soups – I first discovered this when I saw a recipe for Jillian’s Skinny Soup, a healthy vegetable soup in her diet program.  She added a splash of vinegar to the soup (you can use any kind – red or white wine vinegar, cider or white).  We tried it and loved it!







5.  Drawing nutrients out of bones for broth – Then we read Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and learned that adding vinegar when you’re making homemade chicken or beef stock helps to draw the nutrients out of the marrow, increasing the many nutritional benefits of it.







6.  Clean the chicken coup naturally.







7.  Remove price stickers







8.  Rinse aid in dishwasher – just add it to the rinse aid dispenser!



?9.  Trap for fruit flies – put a little vinegar (I used cider vinegar) into a cup, put a funnel on top and watch the flies collect (I know, gross…)







10.  All this in addition to the many obvious culinary uses – Salad dressing, marinades, etc.!
