Run Disney Star Wars Weekend

501st Selfies

Grab a cup of coffee, this is gonna be a LONG post, but it’s been a week and if I don’t do a dump now, it ain’t gonna happen. Last year I hopped on the crazy train with everyone else and signed up for this weekend at Disneyland. Did I mention it was the inaugural STAR WARS race weekend? Um, heck yes. With everything going on lately, however, I was feeling pretty stupid trying to tackle three races over the next three days. {Read More}

Thanks and #ThisGirlCan

All

Can I just say what a blessed woman I am? Honestly it rings true just as much today as it did when we were going through the muck of it all, but your texts, messages, and comments just leave me speechless. Part of me is somewhat waiting to see (or expecting?) what’s going to happen next, but all I can do is keep moving forward and pray for the best outcome. Moving on… I’ve been seeing everyone’s recaps from 2014, {Read More}

Transparent Tuesday {Life Lately}

Glen

Once upon a time, there was this girl. She. had. no. clue. But she had a boy. Then she and this boy made some kids. They started with this heart breaker. And man, has he been a heart breaker. He’s determined, stubborn, strong willed, and always right just like his mama. In the past year or so, my world has gone from this: To this: Some years days, parenting really sucks. You do what you can, the best you know how, but ultimately {Read More}

Fitwall: The Numbers Game

Gone-with-the-Waist

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by FitFluential, LLC on behalf of FitWall Y’all know how much I dig my Polar, and I totally geek out over numbers and data when it comes to workouts and measuring progress (Except the scale. Scales are pointless in giving you any helpful body composition numbers). My first Fitwall workout was awesome, but because I rolled in right as class was starting, I didn’t get to sync up and get my personalized FIT Factor for the {Read More}

Fitwall: Fit in 40

Class

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by FitFluential, LLC on behalf of FitWall Confession: I’ve been cheating on my gym. It’s been a little while since I picked a fight with a boy up a weight and I don’t even care. I’ve been all about this business lately: Each workout has a theme, but they are all about working the body as a whole rather than just pieces, so you’re burning more calories in less time while building strength, cardio, and {Read More}

Climbing Up the Wall

Fitwall

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by FitFluential, LLC on behalf of FitWall A while back I heard about this new (to me) company, FitWall. They had their mobile “wall” set up at our local running store for us to try out, so you know I had to give it a try. Oh, did I mention it was a super hero themed adventure run? Or maybe I just felt like Wonder Woman that day. Ha. It was pretty fun playing on {Read More}

Meet Me at the Barre!

barre

In case you’ve lost track, we’re going on NINE months now of this tennis elbow nonsense. In my head I just keep thinking, I could have made a baby in the time it’s taking for this elbow to heal! (Dramatic, much?) Thankfully, no. There will be none of that baby talk from the womb. Ever. Again. I pray. For reals. Which has nothing to do with this post. Keep up. I have, however, been much more keen on trying different {Read More}

Road Runner Sports Girls Night Out

Beat the Boys

Every so often, our local Road Runner Sports has events in addition to their monthly adventure runs. Last night was their Girls Night Out, so you know I was all in. They know how to take care of the ladies, with the gents pouring the bubbly and a variety of cupcakes. I could seriously eat a full platter of the tiramisu cupcakes without thinking twice write an entire post about the cupcakes. As always, there were a number of raffles and {Read More}

Disclosure: As a SweatPink Ambassador, I was provided samples in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was provided, and let’s face it, you can’t pay me to say nice things. That’s just not how I roll :).  I am a big lover of my protein.  Without fail, my mornings start with a good blend of protein and complex carbs to get the day going, and I have learned to always have a post workout shake with me otherwise I become the {Read More}

And Then It Was Fall

BlogFest

You can’t multi-task the present. No, no you cannot. Being in the present meant taking a break from the interwebs for the summer. Kinda like running, there were plenty of days weeks where I was convinced I didn’t want to this blogging thing anymore. Things were too hard, too busy, too much.  Recently, mini-me told me through some hard fought tears that it’s been a hard year. No joke, kiddo.  At one point, the mr. even told me he liked me better {Read More}
