Confession: I’ve been majorly, majorly, slacking since the Akron Half Marathon. I needed a break. I needed to stop training and I needed to workout when I wanted to work out — not when I “had” to work out. Buuuuuut … that’s finally taking a toll on me. I’ve been running a few miles here […]

Ready To Run //

September 26, 2014

After months of pretending that this day would never come — it’s here. It’s real. Tonight I will not sleep. I will toss. I will turn. I will spend the entire night in anticipation of tomorrow. Of starting in a corral for the first time ever. Of running my first real-deal race. 13.1 miles. See […]

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 // […]

The other day I did something life-changing… I officially joined Team Beachbody as a Coach! I cannot wait to hit the ground running — literally! Over the past several months I’ve been looking into ways of improving myself physically, mentally, and emotionally. What better way than working on myself while helping others achieve their goals??

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 […]

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 […]

I’m down another pound from last week! I’m hoping I can continue this trend. Plus side? I haven’t been starving myself! No, I wasn’t starving myself before… but being new to Weight Watchers made me nervous to use any of the weekly points or activity points. Now I know that I can spread the use […]

Fitness Fridays // on being OK

January 11, 2013

I’ve been exhausted all week. I tried to get up early for a morning yoga class every day this week, but it just didn’t happen. The class is at 6am. And I would need to wake up at 4am to pump and get ready. Blah. Yeah that just didn’t happen. Instead of stressing about the […]
