Working Out

The truth about stress

Wondering where I've been the past couple of weeks?  I've been stressed.  It's left my unmotivated to do much.  I've still be working out because HELLO that's a big stress reliever.  I think if I didn't workout, I would be a bundle of nerves and anxiety.  When I'm stressed or in a foul mood, the [...]

This week I haven't really be into anything.  My mind is on Denver next week which kind of made this week kind of blah for me. I haven't been motivated to do much so I've kind of just been off.  I probably just needed a little a reality break though.  I've still done my weekly [...]

At the beginning of the summer Willie started this water drinking thing because he felt like he wasn't getting enough.  He started doing it so of course I jumped on it too.  I just didn't use that annoying app that has reminders to drink all the time.  (Truth: Every time that sucker went off I [...]

Happy August everyone!  It's the start of a new month which means anything is possible.  Start thinking about the things you hope to accomplish this month. Yesterday was my momma's birthday!  It was kind of a chill day for her.  My  momma likes to celebrate occasions with food which is hard for Willie and I [...]

It was a big weekend because I did my 20 miler on Saturday.  Yesterday was a rest day.  Rest days are important to give your body a recharge.  It may sound funny coming from me because most people don't think I take a rest, but I know when my body needs a rest.  Always remember [...]

This morning started off very early for me.  It's the day in every marathon training plan people look at and think..."20 miles is a long way to go without someone cheering you on."  Well today was my day.  Honestly, I was skeptical about completing all 20 miles in the Texas heat and humidity but I [...]

Every once and a while I get an e-mail asking me if I have "fun" because it always seems like I'm working out or running. The past two weeks have been filled with these types of e-mails so I thought this would be a great time to blog about this kind of stuff. I know [...]

This was my second year doing the Katy Flatland Century, BUT this was Willie's first "big boy" bike ride ever. I've really wanted him to ride with me but road bikes are expensive. He was kind enough to let me get my bike first. He really wanted to make sure he would love the experience [...]

I'm riding in the car back home father a really long day. Fitbloggin in Savannah has come to a close and I'm back in Texas. I'm not going to go into much detail right now about the conference because there are some things I really want to share with all you readers. I learned a [...]

I feel boring lately because I haven't really been doing anything exciting. I needed the change of pace though because I was on the move the entire beginning of the year. Plus, things are getting ready to kick into high gear for me. This week I'm going to Fitbloggin in Savannah, GA so I'll be [...]
