Getting Started

Finally a post about working out! I love working out and all things fitness and could really talk about it all day. Training is where I get my energy, it’s how I relieve stress, and it’s what makes me feel good. I love showing people how fun (and rewarding) it can be to build exercise and training into their life.…

Healthy Habit: Egg Pie (I know, I know…it sounds weird…)

During the week, I wake-up at 4:45am. This may sound dreadful, and I agree some mornings it can be pretty terrible, but I love the peace and quiet of a napping house where everyone is sleeping.  Because I am typically half asleep, keeping breakfast simple is essential. My go to breakfast the last few years has been what I call…

“It’s All My Fault”

Last weekend, my four year-old son Shane broke his arm, and I felt responsible. That Saturday morning, Jason and I had decided to take a class at our gym. We arrived that morning, signed the kids into child watch and headed to our class.  As we were finishing a grueling HIIT spin class, the child care staff came to get…

Apps I Love: Starbucks

Okay, I considered not posting this one because until last week I thought everyone knew about the magic of the Starbucks app, but I was wrong so here it is. Like so many of you, I love coffee.  Coffee is a warm hug in the morning to get my day started. I am pretty sure I have a coffee addiction,…

Healthy Habit: Weekly Veggie Prep

Lessons from a 7 Year-Old’s Skate Party

Have you ever had one of those parenting moments that just made you think to yourself “I did it!” “I am rocking this parenting shit right now”? These moments happen every now and again and sadly feel too far in between. My most recent proud parenting moment happened at the dreaded school friend birthday party. This particular party was a…

Apps I Love: Ink Cards

In the pursuit of finding balance, I have worked really hard to make boring or laborious tasks more efficient in an effort to give myself more time to do the things that I enjoy. In the Apps I Love series, I will share with you the Apps that save me time or just generally make my life easier. The first App I…

Healthy Habit: Take the Stairs

On the quest for greater balance and bliss, my overall fitness and health has been a huge focus. Because this journey can seem so overwhelming, I believe in making small manageable changes to get you closer to your goals.  With this, I present to you the first of my Healthy Habits posts. These posts are short, to the point and in most cases very…

Balance and Bliss

I have spent the last two years figuring out how to be happier. Let’s face it, life can be hard and its hard in different ways for different people at different times.  I think we all reach a point (some may call it a midlife crisis) when we ask ourselves “is this what we wanted for our lives”?  For me,…
