my form of fitness. I believe in the power of intention. I look to my vision board as a source of motivation and inspiration. I turn to my gratitude board as a reminder of what I'm thankful for. I have a personal mission statement. I've recently revamped my blog's mission statement. I possess a carefully crafted spiritual mission statement. We've worked together to create a family ...

Yoga Gave Me My ISH Back.
adult-ISH. Lately, Ive become an adult. I don't even know how it happened, but one day I was happily not giving a f*ck and the next I was all grown up and business-like. Job hunting, mortgage paying, parent teacher conference'ing, taxes figure out'ing full-on ADULTING. In some ways it was good (we love us some electricity & groceries up in herre) yet for the most part it suffocated me. I ... Continue Reading
My pedometer made me a better mother.
I'm either an *early* adopter (Netflix'ed a decade before the "and chill") or l-a-s-t to the soiree (leaped on the Crocs bandwagon long after its wheels had fallen off). I'm also opinionated to the point of resembling a Tornado petulant child. Once I decide I dislike something (hello mayonnaise! greetings CrossFit!) I rarely give it a chance. Back in the '90s, when everyone was obsessed ... Continue Reading
What *Ive* learned from summer swim team.
It's neither good nor bad we aren't a sports family---it just is. Most sports happen during the school year when we (the royal) struggle to keep up with academics. In addition, during any free moments after school, there are other activities she'd rather do. And we move as a family. A lot. Recently, however, the Child changed her mind and announced she wanted to try swim team. I ... Continue Reading
Tips for walking a marathon?
JUMPING = play!! To know me is to be highly aware I'd rather play than do traditional exercise. Hula hoop. Scooter. Monkey bars. Roller skating. Hopscotch. Tether-ball. ANYTHING except organized workout classes or routines. I'm working to change that part of myself a bit. It's not I think it's time to grow up---I've just felt an inexplicable pull toward fitness mission statements and ... Continue Reading
5 healthy habits for beating energy VAMPIRES.
I love this vampire gurl! As we've established I've jettisoned the java. As we've also established, I did it only because my machine broke (pour some grounds out for our fallen homie) and I realized even without my morning jolt I wasn't appreciably more tired. I was just tiredtired. It seems we're all tired tired. We're coming off the Halloween High, gearing up for holidays-to-come, ... Continue Reading
My Kangoo Jumps
The below is not a sponsored post. No compensation was involved. I simply adore my Kangoo Jumps. And I can't help it. If I love you--I talk about you. As I age grow up many things have changed. I'm forced to be more responsible. I'm compelled to get serious about my (finger quotes) career path (unFQ). I'm (sometimes an accidental) role model for a little human. Life is ... Continue Reading
Whats wrong with average?
The photo which started it all... The Child and I have been going through old pictures. Everything from Great Grandparents to Mama back in the olden days. Pre-child. Pre-marriage. She discovered a stack from when I was in college and immediately remarked how different I looked. She couldn't come up with words to capture precisely how (I think she was too sweet to point out my current ... Continue Reading
Once upon a time, I lost weight in a S.N.A.P.
Click me! Click me! Mama, did you go to college? (Yes) Did you go to Yale like Rory?? (No) Where did you go? (Kenyon) Ive never heard of it---did you have fun? (Yes. Lots and lots and lots of fun.) ... Continue Reading
I exercise intuitively.
My exercise routine has gone through many changes over the years. I started out a more traditional weight lifter. I explored yoga and other non-weighted options. I discovered my love of balance work: I found my calm through walking: Ive realized, more than anything, my body craves movement in the same fashion I live the rest of my life: INTUITIVELY. It knows ... Continue Reading
