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 [...]

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 [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Five

This week was crazy and wonderful and different, because Scott took the week off! It was wonderful beyond words, and though I’m a bit worn out in some ways, I’m renewed in others. Food: even with Scott home this week I are really well, and I’m proud of that! Only thing really of note is [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Four

Here I am, halfway through the week again, and just now recapping things.  MomLife- Whaddya gonna do? I don't think I even promoted my last post on my SM accounts. It was a good week, though, and I'm super excited about where I am finding myself and where I see myself going in the near [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Three

So, yeah, this is a little late...but here I am! This past week I found myself not just feeling better than I had before that terrible energy trench last month, but better than I have in, maybe years, physically, at least. Mental health is improving, but, as I hope to share more about soon, it’s [...]

Fall Health Goals Week 2

What a week! I am so glad I’ve made these changes! It’s still fairly early days to know all the benefits and effects, but I am so excited to share with you what I’m experiencing so far. First, I want to share about the aesthetic stuff that I am officially not focused on right now, [...]

What’s on my plate? Fall 2017 Food and Supplement roundup

I wanted to do a quick post about how I’m fine tuning my nutrition to match my goals in this season, so y’all have some context for my updates. First, Supplements! You might Recognize the Barlean’s fish oil from this spring-I’m adding it back in because it’s the best way to get my EPA. I’m [...]

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 [...]

If it IS Broke…

***Fitness post! *** I came back from vacation ten days ago frustrated literally to tears with where I found myself on this journey toward my health and fitness goals. I'd worked out consistently at full effort for six weeks, and eaten real whole foods at least 70% of the time. It would be entirely reasonable [...]
