She too mentioned […]

Recap & December 2020 Goals

Somehow I got so wrapped up in life and everything else that I seem to have forgotten to post my updates!? Whoops! That’s ok though, because a large part of the reason I have been behind is because 1. I have been crushing goals, 2. I have been exploring and thoroughly enjoying my new(ish) relationship/partner […]

Fitness Goal – Spartan Race 2021

Stress & Self Care

As the weather turns cooler, the sunlight hours lessen, and we start to spend more time indoors, I wanted to gently remind everyone to keep their stress levels in check, and allocate time to self care. Stress. That sneaky bastard. It’s infiltrates our minds and bodies in ways we don’t even recognize many times, and […]

August Recap & September 2020 Goals

It has been a HOT one in August and this did nothing for my motivation to be honest. It was SUPER hard to want to work out and cook (in particular) with this crazy heat wave … and my house with no AirCon. Anyway, let’s see how we did in August and where we want […]

Chaos or Calm?

Your outside world will match your inside. Unknown I have heard this quote before, but was reminded by Mark Groves podcast recently. I know that for myself, this has been (annoying to admit) true. This can also be something that’s hard for us to accept, if we aren’t ready or willing to admit that we […]

You-nique. Rules for YOU

I have said it before but I think it’s a good reminder periodically, but YOU are not me. I am not my friend or sister, and nobody (and no BODY) is the same. I find this especially necessary to say in relation to fitness and health. As a person who has been on their own […]

Simple does not = Easy

Mel Robbins frequently says “things are usually simple but rarely easy” and while I don’t know if she’s the one who coined that phrase/idea first, I do know she repeats it a LOT, and she is who I attribute my recollection of it to. This short phrase has helped me a lot recently. It helped […]
