There's nothing wrong with Thanksgiving eating but there is a problem with leftovers.  It's especially hard to be one of those people who HATES to throw food away.  Continuing the Thanksgiving eating for many days after Thanksgiving can be a problem. I woke up yesterday and saw a lot of food in the trash including [...]

GO HARD – Hug a Runner

Go hug a runner because it's time to Go HARD.  It's Globally Organized Hug A Runner Day!  Last year, I missed out but this year I got in lots of hugs! I told you running makes me want to hug people! These are some of my favorite people but not all. So don't get offended [...]

Give group fitness a try.

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I'm still trying to get in the swing of things.  I don't know I just feel off this week.  I haven't been hungry and I've been a little tired.  Maybe it's because it's a million degrees outside.  All I know is, I'm just trying to stay hydrated! When I'm feeling down in [...]

It’s our anniversary

Four years ago I married my best friend!  It was a very cold day in January but our hearts were filled with love and joy as we celebrated the day with family and friends. Willie and I have been on an amazing journey together and I know we still have more to conquer out there [...]

It's the beginning of the year and a LOT of people have resolved to get fit. That's how the year always starts off right? People flocking to the gym, getting gym memberships and flaking out come February. Those people never see the gym until January of the following year when they plan to do it [...]

Challenge: I CAN…Be Active

It's that time of year again when people say they are busy but aren't too busy to eat. The holidays are about spending time with family and friends and buying gifts, so why not give yourself a gift? The holidays are filled with treats and great food so practice moderation with those foods. BUT I'm [...]

I've had rough start to the week and my mind has been playing tricks on me. If you didn't know, I've been taking swimming lessons because I have this crazy idea of becoming a triathlete. I like to run and I LOVE my bike, but I can't swim very well. Let me be honest, I [...]
