Baby, it’s cold outside…

It has been so very cold lately. I think I read the last week has been the coldest on record since they started recording in 1897! The cold has had a tremendous effect on how this year has begun for me, especially in the fitness arena. Join me as I recap the first week of [...]

November challenge weekend edition, Vol 1

November 4:Thankful for Thighs I am thankful for my thighs. They may not be as lean as I would like, they will never have a gap, but they are strong! They have done thousands of squats and lunges in the past five years, they have biked easily two thousand miles or more in the past [...]

I am not my tummy, and other mid fall reflections.

I am not my squishy tummy...However. I’ve written a lot about body image and about learning not to demand perfection or someone else’s body from it. I know I’ve written about how I need my goals to be attainable and maintainable. All that is still true, and I’m still very passionate about it. But I’m [...]

The next leg of my fitness journey

What’s the next stretch of my fitness journey look like? Well, we all know Sumner bodies are made in winter, right? I’m going to spend the rest of my Fall getting a head start on that, buuuut with a hefty dose of self care. The big news, however, is that I’m going to make a [...]

One week into Health Goals Fall 2017…

First, Thursday is a weird day to be writing these updates, so after this I’ll be switching to Sunday or Monday. So, expect to hear more about this week then. So, a week ago I wrote about how I was going to shift my focus until at least the end of October to taking care [...]

New goals as Fall Begins

With all the new perspective I'm gaining lately on rest, self love, and self care, I find myself in need of some new/updated goals for this fall that match. I'd really like to be finished losing weight-y'all know that by now. Part of it is that I just hate having things unfinished. I like to [...]
