Cheer Me Up (+ a GIVEAWAY)

We said goodbye to our pup of 16 years on Wednesday and, honestly, I’m still in the grieving phase. So, to cheer myself up a little bit, I wanted to talk about some of the things that are making me feel really happy right now. Soybu – I’m on a mission to find incredible, easy […]

I Am a Gladiator (or FREE CAMP GLADIATOR BOOTCAMP)

You guys. I’m not saying everything is perfect right now. I mean, tomorrow is Christmas Eve and I’m having an early morning surgery to remove some impressively gigantic ovarian cysts.

The Journey So Far…

On July 28th, I bought a journal at Target, sort of on a whim. It was right after I wrote my last blog post, which was all about feeling stuck and needing to find a way to push. Things didn’t go so well at first. 7/29: I’m feeling tired and frustrated with Day 1. I’m […]

Push

We must be willing to LET GO of the life we’ve PLANNED, so as to have the life that is WAITING FOR US. — Joseph Campbell Maybe I need to push myself out of complacency and into embracing belief in myself and commitment to my own joy. Otherwise, I settle for what’s familiar, what keeps […]

FitBloggin Recap – Part 4 (The Truth)

Here it is, friends. My FINAL FitBloggin recap post. I’ve talked about the logistics, the things I learned, and the people who moved me. So now it’s time for the rest of it. The deep stuff. The things it took me weeks to really wrap my head around, and that I’m still sifting through. I’ve […]
