#PrincessBootCamp – Pocahontas Week Fitness Plan

Pocahontas is easily the fittest Princess in the bunch. She climbs willow trees, canoes rivers, free runs through the forest and swims. This week I did as much of that as I could with my main focus being on running and canoeing. This is my canoe, her name is Grandmother Willow. There is a lakeContinue reading “#PrincessBootCamp – Pocahontas Week Fitness Plan”

When the Music Dies

Here we are in week 2 of the Zombie Apocalypse. Maybe it hasn’t happened to you yet, but there will come a time, my little zombie hunters, when the music will die. This is, after all, an apocalypse and one simply has no time for the finer things in life. Disc Jockeys will be turned,Continue reading “When the Music Dies”

Zombies Don’t Care About Rain

A big deterrent to physical fitness is the weather. Mother Nature has her own ideas sometimes about when you’ll go for a run or a walk or a fitness class outside. But guess what…zombies don’t care about the rain. That’s why it’s vital for you to continue training in all kinds of weather. Listen, I’mContinue reading “Zombies Don’t Care About Rain”

Finding Inspiration

I’m a pretty inspired person. I find inspiration in music. I find it in movies. I find it in books and blogs and friendships and in daily quiet time with God. Out here in California I find it when simply gazing at the sunshiney sky or a perfectly placed palm tree. But sometimes the wellContinue reading “Finding Inspiration”

Me, Myself and that Other Girl

Do you ever have those moments? They often happen around bedtime for me. You know…when little revelations about your life seem so attainable? You think maybe you’ve figured it all out. And you can finally say the things you’ve bottled up and you can face those demons head on without fear. When I’m about to goContinue reading “Me, Myself and that Other Girl”

#AvengerinTraining – Recap

After 6 weeks of weekly challenges, superhero meal plans and different classes all around New York City, I lost 15 pounds and I feel stronger than I ever have. 15 pounds is by no means as extraordinary amount of weight to lose. But it’s a good amount and it’s enough to be very proud of. There wereContinue reading “#AvengerinTraining – Recap”

#AvengerinTraining – Hawkeye Week

Pushing Through After hitting the wall during Thor Week, I was back on track and pushing through Week 5. Spring had returned, making morning runs a joy to complete! I really love to workout in the morning. I feel like it’s my personal time to get things done. Like the rest of the world isContinue reading “#AvengerinTraining – Hawkeye Week”

#AvengerinTraining – Iron Man Week

Introduction I would consider myself a fairly fit person. I enjoy running and Soul Cycle and walking and when I’m vigilant, I eat marginally well. But then came the winter and I was discontent. Chilly weather caused my motivation to disappear. The running stopped. The Soul Cycle stopped. I still tried to walk and getContinue reading “#AvengerinTraining – Iron Man Week”

Chasing My Shadow

You know that time of the morning when the only light around comes from the street lamps? And as you walk or run by one it seems like your shadow is racing you? This morning I played chase with my shadows. During my run I’d speed up to try to beat it. (Knowing of course that it’s impossibleContinue reading “Chasing My Shadow”

Friends Tour

There are so many shows and movies set in New York City. But out of all of them, Friends is probably the most poignant for women in their 25-35’s. It’s what we grew up watching and dreaming about. It just seemed like the coolest group of people on the planet. (Still does in reruns!) SoContinue reading “Friends Tour”
