Marathon training, I’m just not that into you. So we’re done.

Wow. Happy 2013! I totally meant to post before the year was 12 days old. But long work weeks, many hours at the gym, updating  and corresponding on my FB page, Twitter, & Instagram, a bad head cold and sleeping have managed to take up of the previous two weeks! So here I am now. …

The big 3-5. Happy Birthday to Me!

Hey, hey–it’s the 364th day of the year so that means it’s my {35th} birthday! 🙂 Today, the hubby and I plan to go watch my team play their last game of the season {sniff, sniff} and then come home and eat some delicious cake. He is making me a kettle bell-shaped cake {35 lbs …

So, I practiced Paleo for a month and…

I already knew that throughout this weight loss/get fit/get healthy journey I had developed some major willpower. Whether it was controlling my portions, choosing grilled over fried {or fruit over cake}, working out when I wanted to lounge in bed, I had to set my mind to do it. WILL myself to do it. Such …

Women’s Running Magazine’s Favorite Bloggers on the Run of 2012…I’m one of them!

If you were my stalker or just couldn’t get enough of me this year, boy were you happy. I was fortunate enough to have popped up and been seen in a lot of fun places for which I was crazy thankful and honored!!! The Huffington Post story was freaking amazing and being on the AOL …

Clothing & Nakedness…Motivation right thurrr.

I loathe the saying, “Nothing tastes as good as being skinny feels.” One, I have no desire to be skinny. With my frame, it just wouldn’t look right. The skinny body with a large head resting upon it doesn’t scream healthy or sexy to me. Two, yes, oh yes, there are sooo many things out …

Januarians at the gym & the people that hate them.

With only a few days left in 2012, the time is near. JANUARY. But not just January…a group that some of you like to refer to as THE JANUARIANS. You know, the mass of people that purchase a gym membership as part of their New Year’s Resolution and in hordes, flock to their local gym …

A fresh prospective & gymtasticness.

I love how a new day can give you fresh prospective, make you feel better, and come to your senses again. I woke up on Thursday feeling a lot better after the whole DC Nike Half pity party I threw for myself the night before. There was just a lot of awesomeness going around: I …

Who’s afraid of the big, bad gym? Not me, not me!

I should be in bed right now, but I had to blog about my first workout session in a gym! EVER. Right–I know what some of you are thinking…she’s a trainer and has never worked out in a gym?! That’s right. Nope–I sure haven’t.  And you wouldn’t be alone with that same questioning thought. One …

Pigs flying, hot yoga sesh & flirting with a run.

After a good year of trying, Elle from Nutritionella and I finally set concrete plans in motion to meet up. She is a fellow Fitfluential Ambassador & blogger who just so happens to live in the area, so it was necessary for us to finally hook up and do something fun! And fitness-minded of course. …
