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

The cooking shows that are now on Food Network are just downright boring. It is hard to find a decent cooking show anymore that isn’t a competition of some sort, or reality cooking shows as they are called. The phrase reality cooking show confuses me a bit because I don’t know about you, but I don’t have 2 sets of every piece of cooking equipment, 2 fully stocked pantries, or 2 ice cream makers in my kitchen to whip up the obligatory sea urchin ice cream when I need to impress a judge that may have little to no experience judging food. It’s as if we should call these types of shows, non-reality cooking shows.





The shows that actually teach you something worthwhile that can be recreated in the normal everyday kitchen (actual reality cooking) is going by the way side. They are being replaced by the winners of the various cooking competitions shown on this network. So instead of using people trained and educated in the food industry, they are now being replaced with someone with a cute smile or with a great personality with promises that they can feed your family in either a ½ an hour or for under $10. If they would have the aforementioned people educated in food, that all can be accomplished on one show instead of it taking two…





I remember the good old days when there were shows like Taste with David Rosengarten. His show was structured so you received a bit of history about the ingredient, different ways to prepare the ingredient and which wines will complement it, here, see for yourself. They are way more interesting than watching Chefs run around with their heads cut off trying to make sure that their sea urchin ice cream is properly plated and given to someone that may not even know what quality sea urchin is supposed to taste like.





Fortunately for me and others like me, there is another cooking channel appropriately enough, called Cook Channel that rarely features non-reality cooking show that is slowly, but surely, ruining the other network.
