I have always made New Year’s Resolutions. Even as a kid, I would make a list of things I wanted to accomplish, or habits I wanted to break. Call them cliche, or pointless…but I don’t see any harm in setting new goals and using the beginning of a new year as a starting point. I […]

We always hear how the body can achieve whatever the mind can achieve. Man, I’ve heard this a thousand times and STILL don’t always believe it! I was admittedly nervous about running the Turkey Trot 5k and 10k back-to-back. I ran the St. Patty’s Day 5k and 10k back-to-back once before, but that was back […]

We had a great weekend at camp for the Labor Day holiday weekend, and Monday morning I watched some TV while reading a magazine and enjoying a cup of coffee while the hubs took the truck and one of the four wheelers to town to hose off the mud from Sunday’s long ride. I flipped […]

Maybe you’ve seen or heard the saying before: “What the mind can believe, the body can achieve.” I’ve reinforced my belief in this concept a few times this summer and I still manage to surprise myself and be thankful for what my body can do. This is one of the most important things I’ve learned […]

I heard at some point the saying that “willpower is a muscle, it gets stronger the more you use it.” I love that, because it’s so true! I have struggled over the years with consistency, and willpower really helps with that. I started a new round of 21 Day Fix last Monday and it’s awesome […]

How has it been more than two months since I last blogged? That’s crazy! So much has happened lately and life has been a bit of a roller coaster. Forgive the random thoughts that are about to follow. My workouts were going pretty well until the weather changes brought on my annual allergy and sinus […]

I really didn’t feel like layering up for my Sunday run. It was 24 degrees but a ‘real feel’ of 5 degrees. I was in a foul mood. And I was tired. But I told my running buddy I’d be there, so I had to go. The workout was an open invitation to a group, […]

It’s Sunday. What are you taking for lunch tomorrow? I agree with the research that shows eating several small meals throughout the day is more beneficial than stuffing yourself three times a day. Unfortunately, sometimes, I don’t properly plan ahead so when it’s time to pack my lunch in a hurry, and I leave for […]

Truth hurts

This is a hard post to share. But I am sharing my journey….the ups AND downs. It’s tough when people don’t tell us what we want to hear. Or offer comments, unsolicited, that ruffle our feathers despite being true. I got upset with my husband this morning. As I finished making his lunch, I told […]
