At the pool the other day, my 5-year-old son poked at me…right in my good ol’ mommy pooch. He giggled, I giggled, then I shrugged it off and chugged another beer (just kidding). But it did make me reflect on my pooch…what a ride it has been! This pooch and I have been together almost […]

As a Fitness Instructor, I wholeheartedly believe in changing up your routine and trying new things. It’s not only great for your body, but also your mind. We have new riders all the time at Cyclebar who leave feeling energized and excited about exercising. Or some people try at home workouts as well (which I’m […]
This is a little bit about hiking, but mostly about how hiking has unexpectedly become a tool to help me win against my anxiety. My 2018 New Years resolution is to hike once a month every month this year. When I shared this goal back in February, I mentioned that my 3.5 year old was […]
When I first started reading about the importance of self care among mothers, I was thrilled. Women spending more time focusing on themselves and taking care of themselves? I’m all for it. But then I started reading some examples of how mothers were practicing self care and I became discouraged. Not because what was working […]

It’s nearing the end of February and I already find myself receding back to my old habits. Maybe it’s these dreary, frigid temps or the fact that my child gets up 4.5 times a night screaming for his ma-ma, ba-ba or any other two syllable “word” he decides to holler down the hall. Whatever the […]
Last summer, my husband put together a home gym in our basement. He was ready to get back to more intense home work-outs in addition to outdoor running. He was also being incredibly thoughtful, and had it ready before our baby was due. The home gym, he believed would provide me with a great option […]
If you’re anything like me, you probably ate all the food between Christmas and the New Year. I’m so looking forward to my kids going back to school and for me to go back to work, so I can get back to my normal fitness and nutrition routine. I have some easy on the go […]

As a mama of 2 boys, the holidays can be exhausting! I love the family time together, the traditions and the food (oh, the glorious food!), but I’m not crazy about the overindulging & totally getting off track with my fitness and the guilt that comes with that. So, I have made the decision to […]
The Inevitable Aging. It’s unavoidable. It creeps up on us at the most inopportune times. One morning you wake up and, BOOM! Wrinkles. Little saggy lines and bags appear where the skin was once firm and glowingly radiant. Your bones start to ache and you aren’t quite as flexible as you remember. Getting out […]

We all know it can be hard to get up early and work out, with or without kids, single, married, dating, divorced, whatever. It can be hard to find energy to squeeze a quick workout into the day. It can also be hard to get up, work all day and then work out at night. […]
My very first blog ever, about a year ago, was inspired by a comment about my body; I was told I didn’t look like I did CrossFit. GASP! Anybody who does CrossFit knows that the number one rule of CrossFit is to always talk about CrossFit, and Heaven forbid anybody tells you that you don’t […]
