#Resolutions

 I hope that you all had a fabulous Christmas  and are as excited as I am about 2017. We all know that it’s easy to create a list of resolutions, but actually sticking to them is the most challenging part. I think you all can agree. Although we all want to push forward, it’s important to look…

My Word for 2017

First off, where did the year go? For those of you who read my last post on the Winter Solstice, you know that I gave you all the challenge to come up with one (maybe two) words that you were going to focus on for 2017. In case you missed it, you can read it…

A Very Merry Christmas

I know I’m a little late getting this up, but I wanted to take the time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I hope you all had a great day watching  Christmas movies, watching the Steelers beat the Ravens, eating Christmas cookies, and spending time with family and friends. Remember this time of…

Winter Solstice…Start Today

Today is a great day. Do you know why? Today is Winter Solstice. For those of you who don’t know, today is the first day of winter which means it only gets better from here. Starting today, the amount of daylight slowly starts to get longer again (yasss!!!). Culturally, the solstices are used to denote…

Beachfit Challenge Winners

Happy Monday. I’m only about 3 months behind on announcing the winners of my challenge I posted back in September (you can check out the full post here). Things have been a bit crazy, but I promise come the new year I’ll be much better about getting these out sooner. I hope you’ll also decide to…

The Year In Review

This post has been in the works for quite some time and I’m excited to have the opportunity to give you a peak at what happened in 2016. This year has been an incredible year of races. Many firsts and accomplishments, but I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of my…

Finding the Time and A New Recipe

Tis the Season to get suckered into lots of booze and lots of not-so-good for you food. It’s sometimes hard to avoid it with all of the holiday parties, but there are plenty of ways that you can. By now you know how much I love food prep which is why I’m bringing it up…

Recovery

Happy Friday. One thing I’ve failed to touch on is stretching and recovery. I know we are all pressed for time, but there are some simple things that you can begin to incorporate into your daily routine. Yes…barre and other workouts will help prevent injuries from happening, but that doesn’t mean you can avoid stretching…

Thanksgiving 2016

I’m a little late on this one, but I wanted to recap Thanksgiving. I figured that I should probably get it done before Christmas and speaking of Christmas it is only 19 days away….yikes. As many of you may know I grew up on a dairy farm and I wanted to give you a sneak…

Hello December

Well…hello December. I still can’t believe there are only 29 days left in 2016. This means that you have one month left to meet your goals and finish this year strong. This may mean going back to your resolutions you made on January 1, 2016 to see where you are and what you have left to accomplish….
