When Motherhood Comes First

When Motherhood Comes First

I love TRX Class. It’s one of my favorite classes offered at our local YMCA. But because I generally can only make weekend classes, I rarely get to attend the class. Yesterday, they offered TRX as part of the Saturday Cardio rotation. I was so […]

New York City October 2017 – Part I

Aka NYC in 4 days without a real plan. In late September my husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage.  To celebrate we decided to take a few kid-free days to have a mini-vacation.  We had originally considered going to Iceland, but decided that […]

5 Ways to Stay Motivated during the Holidays

It’s been a year of ups and downs for me.  After having ankle surgery in February I’ve been training in fits and starts.  I hit little setbacks, then find a way to move forward again.  I’m looking forward to setting goals in 2018 and hopefully […]

My time in my first half marathon was a little bit of a shock. I had trained to run 11 minute miles and was more than prepared to run slower than that. When I crossed the finish line minute miles. It’s a PR that stood […]

Catching up on the Last Couple Months (TOL #7)

The last few months have been a whirlwind.  I always find it hard to come back to blogging after an absence, but I mostly blog for myself now, so I apologize for anyone who would have liked to follow along.  I figured I would share […]

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween

Last night I took my kids trick or treating door to door in a neighborhood across town. I didn’t take a single picture. My daughter was a witch complete with green face, not unlike what she wore to school earlier that day. My son went […]

I love October.  October is exhausting.  I’m trying to ease myself back into blogging again, and I have a ton of material to share.  There’s so much I want to be able to remember in the future, but it’s important to me that I live […]
