I recently had a friend in from LA who I grew up with. We went for a quick workout together – Crossfit style, and bumped into our very svelte mutual friend. Long story short we left inspired and motivated by all the growth and change our friend had experienced the last year. She’s visiting family for a bit and I’m going to visit her in … Continue reading Setting My Goals : Part I
When you do something that makes you feel uncomfortable there is always a lesson and opportunity to come out of it. If it doesn’t scare you in some way, you are not growing. I have a competition coming up this weekend (more on that later), and my mind is basically finding every reason on why I won’t be good enough to do well.

I need to feed the kids, a lean machine of a hubby and myself who doesn’t bust her butt at the gym to … Continue reading Chilly Day Soup (Healthy)
When you really work your butt off you eventually hit a high point for yourself, a peak so to speak. Amazing, great job, lets celebrate your accomplishments and then lets prepare mentally for the settling into the maintenance phase. A step very often forgotten. I was recently a victim! Someone get a tissue… The maintenance phase is where you should experience balance. Do not define … Continue reading A Peak? A High Point In Between Two Low Points!
I’ve been asked about my goals quite a few times over the last few weeks. I really had to stop and think about it. If I could rewind 1 year I would be able to tell you without a doubt what I was thinking; “get in shape”. I had just had my third daughter and I wanted to loose the weight and look like I … Continue reading What’s The Point?
