Guest Post: Counteracting Conventional Knowledge

Today we've got a guest post from Misty of The Family Math. When she contacted me about this post, I knew exactly what she was talking about because I had experienced the same thing. For now, I'm handing the reigns over to her. Check back next week for a FitnessGlo giveaway. Take it away, Misty! I've had weight issues since I was a kid, a teenager really. In middle school, I decided I wanted to play basketball. I was naturally athletic but a Continue Reading

Anklegate + Tabata Style

PTT Treatment

Anklegate: It started in March of 2011 when I was training for a half marathon. My left foot and ankle decided to team up to be one major hassle that would haunt me.

“Need To” versus “Want To”


I spent the past week and a half working out of town, so apologies for the radio silence. While out of town, I was working in a hospital setting and had time to do people watching. I love people watching, especially at airports or in the mall. The hospital? Not so much.
