Refocused

I posted the blurb below on my Facebook page yesterday, but thought I should post it here as well. I’ve been pretty slack in blogging lately, but I am here and reading as much as I can. Just working on my marriage and my family and my health. Hoping to get back to writing more […]

T – 60 Days

This morning I woke up to my phone telling me, “60 days until Hawaii!” SO, yeah. I suppose it is time for a progress report (or lack thereof) on my workouts and clean eating goals. Basically, my coping mechanisms suck, and I tend to deal with stress by eating and drinking too much (generally with my […]

Phase 1, Breakin’ It Down

Last week I wrote a breakdown of my 12 month plan to age 35, so this week I decided to break down what I plan to accomplish in these first three months. As a recap, my goals for the first 3 months were: Lose 15# and 5% body fat. Complete at least 3 rounds of […]

My 12 Month Plan to Age 35

Today is my 34th birthday, and I’m not nearly as happy, hot, and healthy as I’d like. I’m a Type-A detail person, so it’s time to lay out some solid time-specific goals (otherwise known as SMART goals) for myself for the next year. A few of the goals & rewards I have set for myself […]

Extreme

So today marks Day 1 of my 1st attempt at the 21 Day Fix Extreme program. I need to get a post together with my measurements, goals, etc., but right now I just wanted to put it out there into the universe that I am MOTIVATED and DETERMINED. Over the weekend I skiied for nearly […]

Healthy New Year

Hey everyone! For those of you who don’t follow my Facebook feed, I wanted to put a quick post up here about my exclusive challenge group that starts in January! We are starting our prep-week January 4th and the full on challenge starts January 11th. Are you in? Message me or comment below for details!

#TransformationTuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone! Well, my health & fitness progress has been a bit all over the board during the first half of December. That seems to happen around the holidays, eh? 🙂 Overall I’ve been keeping up with my workouts 5/7 days at least, and I’m usually making better food & alcohol choices, so I’m going to […]

Emerald Coach

Less than 3 months ago I decided to give coaching with Beachbody a try. I was already using one of their programs and loving it (21 Day Fix), and between the incentive of the coaching discounts and the allure of the accountability of having teammates and customers, I decided to go for it. Let me […]

#WorkoutWednesday

Almost 4 years ago I started my Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In (WWW) posts with my 1 week postpartum post after delivering Stella. I’ve kept up with them pretty consistently over the years, but it’s time for something new. I don’t want the focus to be only on weight, because as we all know, the scale doesn’t […]

Being a Mom CAN Mean Putting Yourself First

You’ll never again hear me blame the state of my body & health on my pregnancies, because whether you gestated the child yourself or became a parent through adoption, I’ve realized that parenting is a serious time suck (in the best of ways of course) and the effect of that is often that we let our own […]

WWW – Battles & Triumphs

Do you know that I can’t remember the last time I puked up a meal? That’s called progress, folks. ***** I sat down to start writing this post last night and realized it was exactly 6 years ago (11/10/2009) that I started this blog with a post entitled “Getting Back on the Damn Wagon.” It’s pretty incredible […]

A Day in the Life – Beachbody Edition

I wrote one of these about a year and a half ago, but I wasn’t exercising at the time and I was still pumping at work and breastfeeding through the night, so my schedule has changed pretty drastically since back then and I figured it was time for a new one. Skip if you want, but […]

Choose Your Hard

So a few of you may know that my Mom is on a fantastic weight loss & fitness journey, and she is continually my inspiration for the dedication to make the small choices that add up to big results throughout the process. I don’t think she’ll mind me sharing that she is down 66.9# and […]

Life.

My life. My body. My happiness. So much has changed since I took this picture just one month ago. And I totally love it.

WWW – Challenge Check-In

Phew – how is it Wednesday already? I feel like the days and weeks are flying by this fall & now snow is almost here, but isn’t that the way life goes? Well, I’m 3 1/2 weeks into my 8 week challenge, and I’m feel pretty good. This week has been a bit of a […]

WWW

Hi everyone! Just a quick check-in here since I always used to do Weekly Wednesday Weigh-Ins, and I kind of want to get back in the habit of that. 🙂 I haven’t done a weigh-in to report (I’ll do that next week), but here are a few health & fitness things I wanted to share […]

The Monday Snapshot – Excited Edition

YOU GUYS! I am blown away by the response to my PiYo / Running Challenge that I am starting next Monday. Seriously. I posted about it on my blog & on Facebook last Tuesday, and 20 of you contacted me. Of those 20, 4 people are already signed up, and 5 more of you are signing […]
