The other morning a mom at the Tornado's school remarked how fit I look. She then continued on to say: You must workout all the time. (Aside: You'd be proud. I spared her my whole CONSISTENCY rant *and* yammers about how LIFE IS MY SPORT. Ive noticed people's eyes tend to glaze over so Im reigning it in these days. Go me!) In the moment where I paused & considered how to respond ... Continue Reading

PLAYout: scooter as exercise.
I know you may be tired of my saying this---Ren Man sure is---but it's freakin cold here. I anticipated "MizFit is cold" weather. I know my FAVE temp is around 87 & sunny, I stalked the weather before we moved and saw it was consistently in the 50s. Cool but doable. And then I learned it's 50s in the same way my beloved Pittsburgh is in the 50s: 30s in in the morning, damp, windy, ... Continue Reading
PLAYouts: Doing the sprinkler.
To know me is to be aware---especially in the summer---we try really, really, really hard never to WORKout. EVER. Life is too short (and the summer, to my chagrin, too too fleeting) to allow exercise to be yet another arena where we have to toil. Where we're forced to (fingerquote) work (unFQ). As a result, Ive chosen to morph the bulk of my fitness into fun. I've decided ... Continue Reading

MizFit on TV talkin’ about PLAYouts.
While I wasn't too into the whole Austin's Fittest Moms photo-shoot idea----I am really appreciating the opportunity to share with other moms how important it is to GET OUT AND PLAY with our children. Sure normal person traditional exercise is has its place, Ive just found the afternoons I spend with the Tornado being SILLYactive are some of our best times together. (If youre checking in via ...

4 reasons to rediscover roller skating.
When we moved back to Austin it required a shift of mindset. A remembering of Ooh yes, summer is when we bring movement indoors unlike our time in the East Bay. In the summers since we've resumed being Texans we've discovered lots of free, creative activities (indoor obstacle courses, duct tape hopscotch grids etc.) but eventually even I concluded it was time to pry open the ...

The Elder Statesman of Kidville.
Today this one starts middle school. When I began working in social media in 2001 she wasn't born yet. When I launched this thing she & I were newly home from Guatemala and she was a year old. This summer whizzed past (I know I know. It will be different next year) in what seemed like a weekendandaBLINK. She worked. I worked. There were camps and canine-time and trips ... Continue Reading
Farewell Elementary (AKA 5 reasons I STILL love my tween)!
pre-school (finger quote) graduation (unFQ). I wasn't sad when The Child went to kindergarten. We'd been Frick & Frack for plenty of years and were both ready to resume/launch separate lives. It was time for her to have secrets and an existence outside of me. It was HIGHtime for me to regain some semblance of sweet sweet freedom. (The freedom didn't quite transpire as planned, but ...
