Divide and Conquer Weekend

I hope your weekend was as fun as ours! Here’s a little recap! Friday night was CrossFit, cheat meals (Billiards burgers) and coloring! I want to kiss whomever invented Color Magic Markers. GENIUS! Saturday morning Neil left for an overnight camping trip with some friends and KK and I got girl time. We watched movies […]



Weekend Naps

The weekend feels like it flew by — probably because I spent a lot of it napping. Oh that face…she’s becoming such a little person these days. I need to capture video of her stomping around the house like she owns the place. Such a little boss. I sometimes catch my breath on the thought […]



Why you should try a Whole30 Challenge

But as we went through the challenge details on Friday, I could tell that the people who were considering the Challenge for the first time were apprehensive, even skeptical of the challenge. And I went home thinking…



CrossFit Training Update

After writing my last post, things are really coming together, especially in the last month. It feels like it’s all come on really fast, and I’m sure it’s because I had a nearly two-year hiatus from active training because of pregnancy and my wrist injury. Since it’s been a bit, how about a new CrossFit […]



Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

9 month appointment in the books and thankfully, no shots. We don’t have to return until she’s a year old — isn’t that crazy? As these doctor appointments become fewer and farther between, I still catch myself thinking, “wait, you trust me to do this!?” But it does keep getting both easier and harder — […]



10 Things I Keep in My Gym Bag

I love reading posts like these from athletes of all types/backgrounds, so I thought I’d create a post of my own about my gym bag necessities that stay with me at all times! Wrist Wraps for lifting. Nuun for those times when you need a little extra in your hydration plan — typically in summer […]



Oh Weekend

We had a great weekend so I wanted to give a quick update — which is tough because as you probably have seen, I tend to be really wordy. Our weekend started off with an awesome find. I’ve been hoping for quite a while to put a little gym area in a little room we’ve […]



A little training update

Can I even call what I do training anymore? I always emphasize to athletes at the box that they need to constantly evaluate their training and goals, and document their development wherever possible. I’m obviously terrible at taking my own advice, because I haven’t done that in months. But since I’m coming out of what […]



2015 Women’s Health Action Hero

A few weeks ago, I received exciting news from Women’s Health Magazine that I had been selected as a Women’s Health Action Hero again for 2015. I reapplied on a whim and told them about the past year of CrossFit and how it allowed me to continue to train and be active through pregnancy and postpartum. I really enjoyed my […]



6 Month Update

Ack! Time really got away from me in month 6 and now we are halfway through month 7 and I’m just getting around to writing this update. I used to think of the 6-month mark often during pregnancy and especially during the first few months of parenthood. I saw it as this outlying benchmark of […]
