5 Month Update

Kaitlan 5 month update! - Kohler Created

Yup, officially dropping the postpartum, these updates are all about Beeb! Here is her 5 month update: Month 5 has probably been the most significant month developmentally yet. She hit this week about halfway through where it felt like she became a completely different person. She rolled over, started using syllables, gained a neck, and […]



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 […]



Week 3: Whole30/Nutrition Challenge

I ate my weight in salad and meat last week — and loved every minute of it. For me, being half-way through any challenge marks a shift in mindset from survival to planning ahead. I hit a rough patch about midway through the week, but when I came out on the other side (despite a […]



Vitamin D

Pork Butt - Kohler Created

A few random ditties from the weekend. We had an absolutely gorgeous weekend! After getting down into the negatives last week, it got to nearly 70 on Saturday! We got outside and took a really long walk. Kaitlan is officially old enough for the front-facing attachment on the stroller — and she LOVES it. She […]



Week 2: Whole30/Nutrition Challenge

Week 2 feels much calmer than week 1, isn’t that always the case? While it still wasn’t perfect, I feel more motivated because I’m feeling the results. And I think I know why. We were having a discussion on our Challenge Facebook group and one of our members hit my biggest issue on the head: […]



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

2015 Kind-of Whole30 - Kohler Created

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 […]
