Like most people who jumped on the Peloton bandwagon, I LOVE the bike that goes no where. It has helped me maintain fitness through the winters in rainy western Washington, a pandemic and homeschooling! All without leaving my house!

Our Swelfies

Anyone that's read this blog or (knows me in real life) knows that I LOVE accountability when it comes to fitness!

Wild Hairs and Crazy Ideas

Waking up this morning at o'dark thirty to a screaming, fit throwing, apparently possessed Hannah, I got the wild hair to get the workout done today before anything else. As I contemplated a run, (location, should I bring Jacob's bike, just the stroller, decisions, decisions....) I got the genius idea to go for a bike… Continue reading Wild Hairs and Crazy Ideas
