TGIF! Is your week winding down? I don’t know what it is about this week, but I’ve been exhausted. It was a treat yesterday when Dan and I decided to ignore our alarm clocks and allow our bodies to tell us when to get up. 8 hours of sleep… on a weekday!? That never happens! […]

I am practically a sloth… Source Sure, I work out most days of the week, whether it’s running, lifting, or doing a bodyweight circuit workout… I move. Many of us do. But that’s only an hour, or 4% of our day. And to be honest, sometimes it’s not even for that long. What am I […]

We’re half way through the month of January! Can you believe it? That means that the percentage of people that started the year gun ho to lose weight has already dropped significantly. That means that percentage of people that started the year gun ho to change any goal has already plummeted. But for the sake […]

*This is the final post regarding my recent nutritional changes. After this, there will be no more labels. Labels.  It’s a strange thing really. Growing up, I wanted to break free of labels. To be my own person. I think every teenager and young adult agrees. Of course we want to be accepted, but we […]

Happy Sunday! This morning started a bit earlier than normal.  I tried a new yoga class at my favorite studio, Yoga House Of Charleston. PowerHouse Conditioning was a blast! It wasn’t yoga in the traditional sense but was a combination of intense strength training, movement, and flexibility. It reminded me a lot of boot camp, […]

Yesterday morning I did something I haven’t done in over 5 weeks. Speed work at the track! Katie and I took a hiatus from track workouts about two weeks out from Kiawah’s Half Marathon. With my foot recovering and with the holidays neither of us were able to make track training happen. And boy could […]

Monday will kickstart what I like to call GymMania (if it hasn’t started already)… everyone and their sister will be sprinting to the gym (and circling the parking lot for 10 minutes trying to get the closest spot possible) to get started with their New Years Resolutions. They’ll dust off their gym cards and feel […]

Happy New Year!! I am stoked for 2014… mainly because I hate odd numbers and writing 2013 just never came easily. Okay, I am pretty stoked for a new year of goals, accomplishments and challenges too! But I don’t want to harp on 2013… while many bloggers are recapping the year, I am ready to […]

Happy New Years Eve! Cheers to ending the year in style… and in my life that means a movie on the couch in pj’s with a glass of champagne (with a frozen raspberry of course) in my right hand. We go crazy on New Years! Not really and that’s the way we love it. Dinner, […]

The last we spoke of my diet I was up in arms about what I should do. Over the past several months, my health hasn’t been tip top. I’ve been diagnosed with anemia, my body hasn’t been recovering as quickly as it used to, I’ve had bouts of adult acne, and to be honest, I […]

Happy Sunday, I hope your weekend is going well. As I sit typing this post, I have a big ole bag of frozen vegetables on my foot. I can barely walk this morning and as much as I wish I had done things differently yesterday… the truth is I can’t go back in time, so […]

You know those stories you hear of grandfathers living to be 95 years old after a life filled with booze, cigs, and fried food? Well, that’s Santa Clause (except instead of booze and cigarettes, it’s cookies and milk). How the man has managed to live centuries while keeping up with his lifestyle is beyond me. […]

*This post is in no way directed to insult anyone. I am using the word “inner fat girl” to describe the eating habits that many of us face. Not as a personal description to anyone. If this phrase upsets anyone, I am very sorry.  Any woman that has ever battled with her weight has gone […]
