Whole 30 – Day 4

Are you feeling puny today? Those are the words that my coworker greeted me with at work this morning. Why yes, yes I am, thank you very much for noticing. To be fair, I overslept this morning, thus my face is nearly bare of makeup and my hair is crazy, frizzy and air dried…but c’mon, […]

WWW – The 20# Plan

169# HFS. I’ve hit and have been hanging out at my line in the sand. My very first blog post here was written & posted in November of 2009, and I wrote about being up to 170# (the highest weight of my non-pregnant life, those are the big peaks above) and being freaked out about that. […]

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 […]

Hurtin’ Unit

Yesterday marked Stella’s 4th day on the mountain, and she truly is improving by leaps & bounds every weekend that we take her up. We have gotten to the point that we’ll take her on the big ski runs and let her just practice her turns & stops without being on the leash, though when […]

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 […]

The Monday Snapshot – Hiking Edition

On Saturday I did a gnarley hike up a 14,000’+ mountain (they’re called “fourteeners”) with my brother and three of our friends. About 1/3 of the way into the hike I was REALLY struggling mentally (and physically), and I really didn’t think I could do it, but my brother kept encouraging me to just take 10 […]
