Week 1: Whole30/Nutrition Challenge

Whole30/Nutrition Challenge: Week 1 - Kohler Created

Well — it didn’t go as I hoped, but I’ve managed to do okay, mostly thanks to Neil’s cooking. We kind of went into this week on the fly because we are finally fixing the storm damage to our ceiling and as a result didn’t get a lot of planning/prep in. Additionally Kaitlan and I […]



Preparing for your Whole30/Nutrition Challenge

blog

Hey everyone! So last week I wrote about our Whole30 Challenge coming up at the gym, and I wanted to give you a little bit of an update! After writing my post, I talked to a few more members and they were in kind of a similar “life” place that I was with Whole30. They […]



4 months postpartum

We were in her 4-month doctor’s appointment yesterday when I realized she was going to be 5 months old this week and that I hadn’t done her 4-month update yet. I’m not late, but it’d be nice to not get caught up and end up several weeks behind…again. If you’re a parent, you no doubt […]



The 2015 Kind-of Whole30

Above: Paleo Beef and Winter Veggie Stew Is there such a thing as a diet challenge cop out? Every year, CrossFit Fringe undertakes the Whole30 Challenge. I help orchestrate, so of course it seems only fitting that I too step up to the plate — literally. (Here are a few of our adventures in Whole30 from […]



Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

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 […]



BLEGH!

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 […]



Eight Weeks Postpartum

Kaitlan - Kohler Created

Please Note: Currently 10 weeks, but with this post, I will be caught up with postpartum updates! Oh my god, I’m the mother of a 2-month-old. The last eight weeks seriously just disappeared. People do not kid, it flies by so quickly, and yet sometimes so so slowly. I’m honestly excited as the days pass though […]



2014 Barbells for Boobs

Barbells for Boobs - Kohler Created

First, thank you so much for all the love for Felix. He was such an awesome cat and I while I know that all pets have to leave us sometime, I wish our vet would have caught the signs of diabetes that our second-opinion vet said were very clear and would have been seen a […]



Four Weeks Postpartum

Please Note: Currently 8 weeks postpartum. I am woefully behind on these. Bear with me as I catch up! I can’t believe we are at four weeks postpartum already! I’d always heard parents lament about time moving way too fast, but they were right, it really does. And things really do change fast. Four weeks […]
