Hi, friends! Happy new year to you! Long time, no talk, right? It’s been a whirlwind over here with the holidays, new clients, writing a macro cookbook, and trucking along with the FDN certification. I took some time away from work and social media around Christmas through the new year, which was a nice change of pace. I had to do some work, but I was excited about it! 🙂 I had 15 (!!!) new…

It’s January 3rd, and I’m finally publishing this blog post, but, hey, it’s better late than never, right? Above: Photos from New Year’s Eve I actually wasn’t even sure if I wanted to write a “goals” blog post. I didn’t write one last year – although, I’ve written many over the years – so I went back and forth whether I really wanted to do the whole New Year’s resolution thing. But after a New…

Happy New Year’s Eve, friends! The start of a new year means: NEW GOALS! And you guys know how much I love setting goals for myself. I blog about my goals at the start of every new year and then review them at the end of the year to see how things went. Setting goals helps me keep my eye on the prize and motivates me to work toward them. And, of course, sharing new goals on CNC for…

As a Stonyfield blogger ambassador, I was compensated for writing this post as part of my partnership with the brand. The thoughts and opinions expressed are honest and all my own. Go Team Stonyfield! The quote above is one of my all-time favorites because I truly believe that little, everyday changes can really add up to something big and wonderful. That said, one of my goals for 2015 is to just “roll with it” and…

Happy 2015, friends! The start of a new year means: NEW GOALS! And you guys know how much I love setting goals for myself. I do it every year: I blog about my goals on CNC and then I check-in with myself halfway through the year and then again at the end of the year to see how things went. Setting goals helps me keep my eye on the prize and motivates me each and…

It’s that time of year again: goal-setting time! I love setting goals for myself””always have, always will! They keep me accountable, motivated, and, of course, I feel so good when I accomplish them. That said, here are my goals for 2014! Give birth to a healthy baby My #1 goal for 2014 is to give birth to a healthy baby. Eating right, exercising, getting quality sleep, not stressing about the small stuff”¦ anything and everything…

I can’t believe the Runner’s World Half & Festival is THIS weekend. Whoa. It really snuck up on me. I feel like I had weeks and weeks to train for it, but now it’s just days away. Yikes. Man, I hope I’m ready for the Hat Trick. I haven’t run that many miles in years. If you’re unfamiliar with the Runner’s World Hat Trick, it’s a 5K and 10K on Saturday and a half marathon…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I love it when other bloggers recap their workouts for the week. I like seeing what they do for exercise and how they balance their various workouts and incorporate rest days, so I decided to recap last week’s workouts for all of you nice people. I also wanted to recap my most recent achievement, which is actually one of my biggest goals””if not the biggest””for…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! I visited my new nephew, Matthew, yesterday afternoon. He’s only a day older since the last time I saw him, but he’s already so different. The first day I saw him when he was only 24 hours old, he just slept and didn’t do much. Yesterday, though, he had his eyes open, he was squirming around, and he even sneezed a few times. He’s so cool. Four generations: My sister,…

Woohoo! I met my goal and survived Open WOD 13.4! As I mentioned in my previous post, 95 pounds (the prescribed weight for this workout) for clean and jerk was pretty close to my 1RM, so my goal for 13.4 was to make it through the set of 12 clean and jerks and toes-to-bar. I thought 60 (total) reps was a good, safe goal for me. It would challenge me and push me out my comfort zone,…

This post is part of my ongoing sponsorship with fitmixer as a brand ambassador. The thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. This month’s fitmixer post is all about trying something new in 2013! I was asked to blog about something I’ve never done before””why I want to try it and how I will make it a reality. Since I already blogged about some of the new things I want to try this year when…

Hi, friends! Since I recently reviewed my goals for 2012, I thought I’d blog about my goals for 2013. I’m not much of a resolution person (a year is a long time!), but I’m all about goals! With that said, here are my goals for 2013! My goals for 2013: Keep my colon healthy I know it’s sort of gross, but this is my #1 goal for 2013. If you don’t have your health, you…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! The first thing I did when I woke up this morning was check who won the election. It was close last night when I went to bed. I’m glad to see we have four more years with President Obama! [image source] Breakfast Yesterday morning’s breakfast was a Sweet Breakfast Scramble, but instead of squash/pumpkin, I used chopped apple. To make it, I cut up half of an apple, microwaved it…

This post is part of an ongoing series and my sponsorship with fitmixer as a brand ambassador. The thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. As you probably know, I love goals””setting them, creating “game plans” to work toward them, and, of course, achieving them. Basically, I love having something to work towards and, even if I don’t succeed, I like knowing at least I gave it my best effort””and isn’t that what’s most important?…

Check out what Mal did to our fireplace yesterday afternoon! Really nice, right? I like it so much better than before (pictured below). It’s amazing what a coat of paint can do! Snack A couple of hours before dinner, I wanted a snack, so I ate some Pretzel Crisps and then shared a carton of pineapple-flavored coconut water with Mal. Dinner Dinner was a good one! (Did you know my dog was spoiled? Murphy had…
