Post-Injury CrossFit Training - Kohler Created

I realized after hitting ‘publish’ on my CrossFit Intramural Game post that it’s been a bit since I talked about CrossFit and how training is going! If you remember, I sprained my wrist while lifting over Thanksgiving break, and since then it’s kind of been radio silence over here regarding the topic — unless you […]

CrossFit Open Intramural FRENZY


Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s been a blitz of a week so far! The 2015 CrossFit Open starts this week and while it’s always met with a warm response from our gym, it’s never been anything overwhelming. Until this year. I can’t even remember what day it was, but a week and a half ago, Tyler (one […]

Baby’s first cold

baby's first cold - Kohler Created

Well, it finally happened. Despite my constant disinfecting, supplementing, hovering, and attempts to ward off potential illnesses with extra sleep and no life, our Beeb caught her first cold late last week. Getting ready for a walk around the neighborhood… I can say now with confidence, there is nothing more worrisome than having a sick […]

Happy New Year

Kaitlan - Kohler Created

My mind can not wrap around how different life is from this day last year. It was a year ago yesterday that we found out we were pregnant with Kaitlan. Pregnancy is a long process, but when you think about the fact that we’re here a year later with a complete and thriving little person. […]

Focusing on progress not perfection

#ProgresstoSeiko - Kohler Created

I haven’t even begun to think about New Year’s. I feel like I barely eeked through the holidays this year. In this season of the year, and my life in general, I’m finding it all too easy to be hard on myself for not measuring up to my “old self.” It feels like I’m barely […]

What do I need for breastfeeding and pumping? (Part 1)

Breastfeeding supplies - Kohler Created

  Getting started in breastfeeding and pumping. Yes, I intentionally tried to make that sound like an old-school textbook. I’m by no means turning into a mommy blogger, but as a new parent, I have received so much help and great information that I feel the need to pay it forward somehow. Because I have […]

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

squat bar - Kohler Created

I swear I am the biggest failed blogger. These weeks, they go SO FREAKING FAST. And it’s really not like there is something monumental happening every day, but every day is a little different, you know? My blog would be epically boring if I was a daily blogger, but there is definitely enough that I […]

3 Months Postpartum

Kaitlan (3months) - Kohler Created

Yes, switching to months because the math is just easier. She’s three months old! She’s definitely not a teeny tiny newborn anymore (I packed up those clothes today), and in the past month I feel like she’s become a little fireball of development. She surprises us with something new every day. I read that babies […]


sprained wrist - kohler created

So it’s been a frustrating week. Yup, screwing around at the gym and sprained my wrist. I won’t go into how, because the mere mention of being injured at CrossFit is enough to puff some hater chests and I really don’t have the energy to defend or rationalize. And really, it’s not so bad, it’s […]

Old School Blogging

Food prep - Kohler Created

I thought I’d just do some old-school rambling. You know, blogging just for the sake of sharing thoughts and feelings — totally unsponsored and unaffiliated. There’s not enough of that going on anymore. My baby is 12 weeks old. Let that sink in for a minute. Wasn’t she just born yesterday!? She keeps hitting all […]
