June Goals // Just Keep Moving Forward

June 16, 2017

Let’s get right to the Real Talk, y’all — May flew by faster than April and we’re already 16 days into June. What the eff. Like, how is that even possible?! Taking a look back at my May goals, they didn’t seem lofty at the time; but they were. Because, apparently, I’m the worst at […]

Accountability // Health + Fitness Update # 1

June 9, 2017

It’s been one week since my fitness update. And I feel amazing! Don’t get me wrong — things have not been perfect. Nope. In fact, I’ve barely been home to make dinner; I’ve been slacking on things around the house; and I’ve generally been a crazy person. But I feel amazing. In fact, I had […]

May Goals // Striving For ‘Good Enough.’

May 1, 2017

I don’t know if it’s just you, but when I saw all of those “It’s Gonna Be May,” memes, all I could think was, “Wait. Where did April go!?!” I know I was crazy busy with work in April (meaning, I worked practically every single day), but I still don’t really understand how the whole […]

Let It Serve A Purpose or Let It Go // and a giveaway

April 12, 2017

Something amazing happened yesterday. I didn’t expect it. It wasn’t major. But it changed me. Without getting into the nitty gritty details, almost 9 years ago, just as my husband and I started dating, a few incidents occurred with another person. This person was, by all accounts, a stranger to me. But was a friend […]

postpartum fitness // wishes + plans

January 17, 2016

I know I’m not postpartum yet, but gosh, I cannot wait to get back to feeling like myself. Don’t get me wrong, I’m giving myself as much time as necessary to heal, postpartum. However, this warmer than usual winter has had me in a bit of a jealous fit from time to time. Especially since […]

31 FOR 31 //

December 4, 2015

It’s been a while since I set any sort of goals for myself. In fact, it’s been over a year! Holy smokes. So it’s time to change that — to give myself a sense of purpose in my thirty-first year of life. Even if this list is making its way two whole months after my […]

Cleveland Marathon // Real Talk

May 14, 2015

OK, friends. It’s time to get real. I’m currently signed up for the Cleveland Half Marathon, which is this Sunday morning… … and I have NOT properly trained. At least not as of recent. As of recent my training runs have been short. Like at most, 4 miles. Even though I was regularly running 10+ […]

the art of juggling // TFAWM an update of sorts

April 9, 2015

Guys. Let’s just cut to the chase: It sucks. Working and being the mom of a toddler sucks the big one. It’s exhausting. And I constantly feel pulled in a thousand different directions. And it is the fault of no one. It just is the life of a mom. Because moms put that kind of […]

why I’m no longer running a spring marathon //

March 3, 2015

I must admit — I bit off more than I can chew. There are several reasons I’ve decided not to run the Pittsburgh Marathon. But the main reason is that it is taking away from time with my husband and son. Don’t get things twisted — Chad is incredibly supportive of my aspirations to run […]

February 9, 2015

This feels incredibly appropriate considering this weeks long run is 13.1 miles. So while most people look forward to the weekend? I’ll be anxious… mixed with a teeny bit of dread. Eek! I need to remember that regardless of how long it takes, I can do it! I realized this past weekend as I was […]
