Alcohol, Bikinis & Catan


I totally owe you all a weekly update. Life is a wee bit crazy. I can’t wait to tell you all the details, but for now, let me just say that last week we were camping with friends. This week I’m toting my kids to and from science classes in between stalking my stat-counter (I was featured on Scary Mommy!)…

A Busy Blip

It’s been three weeks since I last posted a weekly update. I would say that was a fail, but I’ve been so busy living life! And living life is never a fail. Some great news: the last few posts I made reflected my down-in-the-dumps mood. I’m happy to say that my head is back up in the…

A Dose of Honesty


It’s been a rough week mentally. I’m about 78% certain that most of it is related to my period, but somehow that doesn’t seem to make it much easier. It’s frustrating because my mood can switch so suddenly and it makes me question everything about myself and what I’m doing with my life. I can…

Stuck in Suckville


I’ll apologize in advance for the boringness of this post. But I just don’t have a lot to say. (Shocking, right?) Total steps: 91, 108. Waaaaay down from last week, but still very respectable at 13k steps per day. I walked every day and racked up 32 miles. Nice. The biggest improvement is that I…

Expectations vs. Reality


So if I’m being completely honest with you (and I always am), I need to tell you that the scale is pissing me off. I want to pretend that it isn’t, and I want to tell you that I know I’m making progress even if the scale says otherwise. But I’m human. And since I…

Spin, Tacos & Finding My Groove


Since the week prior was crazy busy, I basically gave myself the last seven days to do whatever I wanted. No expectations – no deadlines. Just be. And man, it felt great. It’s the ability to do this kind of thing that reminds me how incredibly amazing my life really is. So grateful. Okay, but we just…

Me, Me, Me!


Well, that was a busy and beautiful week! I shot a Project Elegance session, took my kiddos to a few classes, attended a little “negative tide” homeschooling event at a ridiculously early hour, adventured to Laie Point, took photos at a kids’ masquerade ball, got irresponsibly drunk, dealt with a hangover, had my first coaching call,…

Taking a Leap of Faith


Today, I feel like a grown up. I’m a grown up who has these big bad dreams, and I’m feeling ready to take big actions to make them happen. Yesterday, I decided to attend Fitbloggin next month, which is a conference for health and wellness bloggers. And it’s in Denver, Colorado this year. So that means…

In Control


So let’s just get this out of the way. No dang weight lifting. Again. Not sure why I’m having such a problem getting back into that, because I know how important it is! But there you have it. Whew. Now that we have the bad news out of the way, let’s get to the good stuff….
