A while back I set what seemed like a lofty goal. Scratch that — while I was running the Akron Marathon Relay last year I made a promise to myself that I would run the Akron Half Marathon this year. That’s right. I decided in the middle of my first major race that I would […]

30 Before Thirty // 4 Months Out

June 24, 2014

Technically it’s less than four months out until my 30th birthday (but who’s counting??). Honestly I’m not dreading this birthday whatsoever (the perks of being the youngest of my friends + younger than my husband — love you all! 😉 ). But I am excited to be knocking some items off my list! 01 // […]

February 1, 2014

Having babies = loss of ab muscles. Postpartum = I want my abs back. Enter the Fab Ab February challenge….   It seems easy enough. Even if I don’t have time to get to the gym (which I truly hope I will regularly!! — Fingers crossed), I can still do these things at home. I’ve […]

get fit!! // jump-starting the wheat belly diet

January 21, 2014

My husband has been super preachy with me about my love affair with carbs over the last year. Prior to my pregnancy in 2012, we ate very healthy. We would obviously have ‘cheat days’ — aka our Vegas trip — for special occasions. But overall, we ate clean, we ate healthy, and we rarely (if […]

manifesting // 2013

January 2, 2013

This year we rang in the new year in serious new-parent style: Thai takeout, movies on the couch, and snuggles with the babe + husband. Oh, and PJs before 6 PM. Yep, crazy and wild night. But it gave me just a few more hours to think about the year ahead. I’m still figuring out […]
