Celebrating consistency 

When I go back and read through posts about my workout routines and dieting, I see a girl struggling so hard to find some sort of balance in life and love of her body. I can sense the excitement and hope in early posts, the plans for shopping for size 6 jeans, and every man’s head turning when she walks in the room. I can … Continue reading Celebrating consistency¬†

My relationship with….me

This post has been brewing around in my mind for the past couple of weeks, but I haven’t had the guts to really sit down and try and sort through it in writing. My relationship with myself has been a very long, very tumultuous road. And I don’t think I’m even half-way through. But when I pause and look back, I can see growth and … Continue reading My relationship with….me

2016 – Explore

I can’t believe I’m already thinking about next year! I am SO on top of it! Well, not really. With my luck (and procrastination skills), this post probably won’t be up until June 2016. (note: I started this post in October 2015) The realization that I was in the 4th quarter of 2015 though shocked me. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone … Continue reading 2016 – Explore

Up until I got sick in 2011, I didn’t really care that I couldn’t swim. Every summer when my friends would jump into lakes or coast on inner-tubes, or … Continue reading Fear be gone!!!!

Owning who I am

For a long time, I’ve run away from myself. I’ve been ashamed, confused, arrogant, broken and hot-headed…..among other things. And I could sit here and list out every reason why I’ve felt all of those things, and justify them like a well-crafted essay. But, what’s the point? Why justify negative behavior when I have the strength and perseverance to change it? In 2015, I set … Continue reading Owning who I am

2015 The Experience – Q3 Recap

I feel like I start every recap post with this but, but, HOLY CRAP WHERE IS THE TIME GOING?!?! I cannot believe Q3 is over. I can’t believe I’m 3 months away from ending 2015. I can’t believe all the amazing things I’ve accomplished this year. It has truly been an experience of a lifetime! While I’ve really tried to focus on all four of … Continue reading 2015 The Experience – Q3 Recap

So, I joined a gym….again……again

I know, I know. Again?! Hey, gotta keep trying until you find something that fits, right? Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane, shall we? Joined my first CrossFit gym in 2012 when I was done with treatments and in remission. I loved the workouts but really disliked the community and trainers. #fail Joined my second CrossFit gym in 2013 when I was ready … Continue reading So, I joined a gym….again……again
