Disclaimer: The Mira Fitness Tracker was sent to me for review and this is a sponsored post. Opinions are my own. It has been years since I've agreed to do a sponsored post. Yep. In an era where bloggers seem to do more sponsored than navel gazing I've tossed in the paid-post towel. For the most part the opportunities haven't been a natural fit and creating a story around the product ... Continue Reading
Losing weight is simple.
“You need to stop saying that. It isn’t easy or simple. I know what you mean--others don’t.” My husband made that remark to me after I responded to a new friend's question about losing weight. It was only then I realized how frequently, when asked about my journey to fit; I used the adjectives easy and simple. Once he pointed it out, however, I immediately saw his perspective. Weight ...

My child plays no sports.
band geek FTW!! I am definitely not a sportswoman. I was born before the push for girls in sports. I claim (I think I read it somewhere?) it's all because when there's dyslexia in a family the non-dyslexic sibling will have poor athletic prowess. The bottom line is I'm not traditionally athletic. I've discovered through trial & error, however, I enjoy moving my body and lifting ... Continue Reading
4 lessons weight training taught me about life.
Resistance training, for me, is bigger than something I do to stay fit as I age. It's taught me more about life in general than anything else I've done and, paradoxically, helps me remain laser-focused on whats important to me outside fitness. I advocate resistance training for health, but am a resistance training evangelist because of what Ive learned from it about living fully. 1. If ... Continue Reading
How many hours a day do you workout?
(if I'm running something BAD is behind me!) Last week I helped with Family Health & Fitness Night at the Child's school. It was a fun way to find out about elementary school PA (I've learned the hard way NOT to refer to it as PE. I guess it's no longer EDUCATION but activity?). It was also another experience of moms asking me: "How many hours a day do you workout?" Hours. Yep. No ... Continue Reading
Fighting over exercise (guest post).
Please to welcome Charlie and her response to my blog post about judging others. There was another discussion this week about how busy I am, how I get up too early everyday to see Tom, (my boyfriend) and have breakfast with him before work and he wishes this wasn’t the case. I completely understand that he’s annoyed that our morning interaction is me kissing him goodbye on the head in the ... Continue Reading
My four step process to becoming a lark.
Disclaimer: Ive always been a morning person. A morning girl. (tell me you know the musical?) I didn't drink coffee until after college & have always leaped out of bed like a puppy. Now that I have a partner-in-crime---it's worse. We both adore the promise of what could happen during any given 24 hour period. (most people feel like THIS about the morning) When I owned my training studio ... Continue Reading
I switched from running to walking (guest post).
This post is both awesome & bizarre. It’s the colliding of worlds (my less than healthy college years & my new Mama-days). And, as a blogger who writes as if no one is reading, it still surprises me when people from my past pop up in comments/greet me on twitter. Alison is a friend, an inspiring runner and, as of recently, a convert to the experience of WALKING marathons and ... Continue Reading
I walked my half-marathon!
My base-layer Sunday. On many levels. I did it. I'll say again, more than anything, I'm proud of myself (<---yep. P-word). I was exhausted (hats off to single parents. this monday-friday is kicking my...piriformis). After days of umbrella-tearing winds, rains and flooding I wanted to seize THAT as an excuse (nice forecast. couldn't.). I remembered how people shared they thought ... Continue Reading
Being a blank page.
The other morning the Child woke earlier than usual. When she came downstairs I was still busy trying to make my mind like this: She was curious. I struggled to explain. Om over at Venus Williams' place sharing how I broke down, on her 9 year old level, meditation and how it doesn't change things. Join me? Disclaimer: Venus and Team Eleven by Venus is a client. My ... Continue Reading
