When I was first approached to be a Beachbody coach, I was VERY skeptical. While I loved the Beachbody workouts and was absolutely thrilled with the results I was getting, I didn’t think that I was qualified to be a coach. My coach, Michelle, convinced me otherwise. She told me that I have what it… Continue reading About this side gig…
Guys, I finished the 8-week LIIFT4 program this week! I went from using baby 2-lb weights to making it through “shred” weeks 7 and 8 without dying! Other than training for my running milestones, this is the first time I’ve gone through an entire workout program from start to finish and I can’t even tell… Continue reading LIIFT4 Program – COMPLETED!
Hey there! Long time, no talk! June has been a crazy month, but I finally have time to sit and chat about stuff. We recently went on a vacation to Wyoming and it was A-MAZ-ING! We’d never been out to that part of the country before, but we our friends, Janette and Tom, moved out… Continue reading Wyoming Vacation
Good morning! Is it cold in your neck of the woods? It feels like 25 degrees here. Yesterday I had to bring out the winter coat. Winter is coming, folks. I am pleased to report that I completed Phase 1 of my challenge. I went 30 days with no alcohol. I’m so proud of myself! … Continue reading Lean & Strong Phase 1 – FINAL Results
Good morning! It has been a very chilly, dreary, rainy weekend here and yesterday we caved in and turned on the heat when the house temperature was down to 61 degrees. I’m just not ready for this weather at all. I do have some good news, though. I’ve completed two weeks of Lean & Strong… Continue reading Two weeks into challenge – UPDATE
No, I’m not talking about retirement from working. I wish. I have a few more years before that will be a reality. No, today I want to talk about my quiet, unofficial retirement from running. For real this time. I know in the past I have talked about it, considered it, and then ultimately would… Continue reading Retirement
This morning I worked out. Most mornings, I have every intention of working out, but then I talk myself out of it. Most days, it’s not a big deal because then I’ll just work out in the evenings when I get home from work. Lately, however, I’m finding it hard to work out in the evenings,… Continue reading Morning workouts
We survived the wedding! It was a wonderful event and I will save the details for another post. I left my phone in my purse the entire day, so I don’t have any photos to share. There was a photographer at the wedding, however, so I’ll have some great photos to share some time hopefully soon! Today… Continue reading Information overload
I originally started this blog as part of a class I was taking on web design. I thought it would be fun to talk about being a vegan, my running journey, and just my life in general, which included a lot of nerdy things, like books, movies, and Netflix binges. But the more I blogged… Continue reading Taking a blogging break
I recently started doing yoga in the mornings. I’ve tried yoga in the past, but I didn’t like it. I found most of the moves difficult to do and it just wasn’t something I was excited about doing. Last week I was digging through some of my old workout DVDs, trying to find a short… Continue reading Yoga….namaste.
