Recap: The Pittsburgh Half Marathon was full awesome!

It’s been exactly one week now, but I still cannot get the complete awesomeness that was the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh {Half} Marathon out of my mind. I wasn’t going to do it because I now tend to focus on weight training vs. cardio. I wasn’t going to do it because I just ran a …

A Road Trip and a RunUpdate.

Roooooad Trip! Today, I began on my way to my favorite place in the world, Pittsburgh, PA, for a destination race—the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Half Marathon!

A Headphone That Beats All Others: The Bose SIE2i Sport

Me + music while working out, we just go together. Actually, if there is no music, there is no workout. I have heard of people out there who can take off on a run sans music and just go with the sounds of nature all around them. There are also people out there who can …

I Got 99 Problems But a Bikini Ain’t One.

Hey–guess what? As of today, you have exactly 99 days until Summer. Okay, let me say that again–YOU HAVE EXACTLY 99 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER!!!!! I say this not to frighten you, but to serve as your friendly reminder fairy that bathing suit season will be arriving right along with it. That always makes me think …

Meal prep rockstar and other stuff I’m loving this week.

On Saturday, I was all nestled in my blogging chair ready to write about things I love from this past week. {Totally missed a Valentine’s Day post so this is my attempt at it…late. Haa.} I somehow got distracted {as I usually do when I sit down to blog} and then decided to wait until …

You asked, I answered: Time & Motivation all here in one neat little post.

With my stepped up dedication to end my weight loss/get fit JOURNEY and finally reach the land of MAINTENANCE, I’ve been hearing two questions over and over. — How do you find the time? — Where do you get the motivation? Over and over and over. REALLY. At least 3-5 times a day errrryday. I …
