Deep Images….with Jack Handy

You know that SNL sketch where the verbiage of a "deep thought" with the Jack Handy voice over lays out a bunch of nonsense? That plays out in my brain in real life whenever I am on a solo bike ride or run or walk with the dogs. I think my best deep thoughts while… Continue reading Deep Images….with Jack Handy

Learning, Learning, and More Learning

Since the phone call, I have met with a registered dietician in my area twice and have gained a wealth of knowledge. So much of which is counter to what we are taught as trainers. (Not to mention the crap nutrition info that gets passed around on the internet!) During the first session, I was poised to take… Continue reading Learning, Learning, and More Learning

The Path

Sometimes the path is rough. It's not laid out like you may have planned. Improvisation may be necessary. That broken log? That's just a way made by those who have gone before you. Be grateful.

Wonder-full Wednesday

I have never been so grateful to sleep in my own bed as I am after a stay in a hotel.

They are the BEST… Continue reading Wonder-full Wednesday

Being outnumbered, two to one Come play with us,… Continue reading Grateful

My Day in The Sun

After a great workout this morning with my sister, I decided that I would do NOTHING all day. Except bask in that glorious light they refer to as "sun". How sad is it that in three short months I lose my mind when that big ol' ball of fire in the sky decides to shine… Continue reading My Day in The Sun

Fully Prepared….To Never Leave The House Again!!

Okay, that may be just a tad bit unrealistic. Although I may consider wearing a sign warning people that if they are considering having children, they should look away as watching our family in action just may be the best form of birth control ever. We went to breakfast with friends at a local restaurant… Continue reading Fully Prepared….To Never Leave The House Again!!

Climbing Mountains

I don't know why, but climbing Diamondhead seemed like such a daunting feat. We have lived here now for almost 3 years but with the excuse of the kids, being too busy, and just life in general it was something we never got around to checking off of the list... .....until today!!!!      … Continue reading Climbing Mountains

HodgePodge!

Well...it's been a crazy couple of weeks! This week will conclude the fourth month of bootcamp - and what a difference 4 months makes... Here is my before/after shots:   It really is amazing to me how fast a body will adapt if you just work out and eat clean and healthy. Not always perfect,… Continue reading HodgePodge!
