That run and bike combo really did me well because I was sure running on some pretty fantastic exercise endorphins yesterday. Maybe it’s a combination of truly feeling blessed by the family I have and the encouragement I get to workout and the feeling of accomplishment that settled in me after getting it done, but… Continue reading Love, blessings, and exercise
I asked my husband today how he thought I should approach my training for the triathlon. Should I just start combining running and cycling? He said he read my post about feeling the nervous butterflies and yes that I should start there because water is my element so the run and cycling is what I… Continue reading The Triathlon: First combo
So it’s no secret that I’m not guaranteed to feel rested when I wake up in the morning, not since having our first kid anyway. Many mornings I have a similar conversation with myself. I hear the alarm on my phone go off and this is what happens… Hit snooze. God I feel so tired. … Continue reading Continue to scroll or get up and go!
I started a 21-Day Fix Extreme workout and I’m so proud of myself because I completed the first 7 days! One of our neighbors and my mommy friend is the Coach for this group and I’m so thankful that she invited me to join. The program is part of Shakeology but for now I’m… Continue reading Day 7
I was feeling rather ballsy yesterday. It was my day off (I work part time) and that meant it was a full day with our daughter. By 11am I had already picked up around the house, done a load of laundry, played and fed our daughter her breakfast, made my husband breakfast, and vacuumed the… Continue reading The House Wife Workout

My husband had finally bought Celeste, our 15 month old daughter, her weeride bike seat attachment so that we could finally take her on a bike ride. So while she was taking her nap this morning he got that thing all set… Continue reading There are no negative gears

I remember in Elementary school I was always excited and willing to participate in a game of tether ball or dodge ball or have… Continue reading My Self Confidence Has Stretched Out and Says, Let’s Do This!
I did it! I completed my very first 5K race yesterday at the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation: Your Next Step is the Cure, Orange County, CA 5K!! I woke up Saturday morning with an “oh oh” feeling. I had a terrible tummy ache and my body just felt weird. Achey. Our original plan was… Continue reading Oh The Finish Line!
This post has nothing to do with Santa yet everything to do with love, giving, and believing. A couple weeks ago my husband went for a morning walk with Biggie our bulldog and our baby Celeste. I had the house to myself for a little while and as I made a visit to the restroom with cell… Continue reading Santa Hustle Run
Celeste had her very first play date today and even though it was the first time she went to my friend’s house she completely made herself at home and was crawling around everywhere like she owned the place. I loved that she got to play with the babies/kiddos and us girls got to get some… Continue reading Happy Moments and Trees
