A while back I wrote a blog post about the current nutrition issues I was facing at the time. So many of you responded with positive words of both encouragement and advice. One particular comment however, caught my eye: She did say to ask if I had any questions, so I took her up on […]

Have you ever stopped to wonder what your butt is actually good for? I mean, we know it’s great for sitting on… but aside from that? Your glutes are the biggest muscles in your entire body, and one of the strongest. They serve for much more than a chair cushion. Your butt helps to extend […]

Happy Sunday! I just wanted to pop in quickly and share a bit of what’s been going on. I have seen “silent” posts up on blogs for awhile and decided to give one a try today. If you like it, let me know… if you prefer my wordy Sunday check-ins, let me know that too! […]

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! […]

For the past 3 years I have dabbled in yoga. Going to a class here or there, doing a dvd workout of Rodney Yee with Dan when we thought about it. But for the most part, I didn’t see it as a necessity to my training. At that time, yoga to me was a workout […]

Well hello there! I have a question for you… It’s a pretty important one too. Have you ever been out at a restaurant or out with friends and either you or them made a decision that wasn’t really the best to make? But with a simply shrug of the shoulders and a “Well, you only […]

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 […]

Tracking, it’s one of those things we all know we should do but that we don’t. I can tell clients till I am blue in the face to track every bite they eat, that this is the most important step to begin the journey to accomplish their goals. I can tell them that, but only […]

With that, happy Sunday! I hope you’ve had a great weekend. On Friday, Dan and I packed up my car and headed 2 hours north to Columbia, SC for an early morning race. Saturday we had plans to run the Mountain In The Middle 12K. Normally, I would just drive up the morning of, but […]

Another week is almost behind us. It’s be a whirlwind type of week for me and I am quite ecstatic to move on. Wednesday we placed my grandmother in hospice. While we’ve known for sometime that this day would come, it never gets easy. Time with family and allowing emotions to run freely has been […]

Hello friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful day. Unfortunately, I am going through some family events at the moment, so I can’t say it’s wonderful (which is the reason for a late posting). I will however say I am grateful to have this place to come to and disconnect. I am also grateful for […]

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 […]

Yup, if you’re looking for tips on how to do step-ups or box jumps, you won’t find them here. There are plenty of other fitness videos and blog posts showcasing those two moves. I want to go a step beyond those. What you’ll find here, today, is something a bit more “fun”! And challenging! This […]
