My Elevator Experience at FitBloggin’

Me and Sue, post Zumba

Not sure what day it is, but I'm alive and kicking and have so much to say! Thursday-Sunday was spent in Baltimore for FitBloggin' and Monday-Wednesday were spent in Montana for work. I made it home last night around midnight and cannot wait to catch up on sleep this weekend. Not complaining at all though, I'm incredibly thankful for all of it. I'm just an introvert (this may surprise some of you) and usually need quite a bit of quiet time in my Continue Reading

Exhausted and Exhilarated.

Me and Bitchcakes!

As you've noticed from the tweets, Facebook posts, and Instagrams (as well as a quiet blog), I've been incredibly busy. FitBloggin' was this past weekend and it was amazing, as usual.

Be ready for the barrage of tweets and hopefully photos from the next few days in Continue Reading

Workin’ It Out (Gym Video 9-14-12)

Part of this blog is written because I want to show that there are more larger people who work out than what you see on "The Biggest Loser." Don't let your size intimidate you or hold you back from moving. I went to edit this video and even opposed to my last video, I see change. Perhaps a lot of it is mental - I feel really good about my motivation. But a lot of it is also mental. I am starting to see myself in a different light. When I was Continue Reading

California Dreamin’ (well, planning)


One of the motivations I have with my weight loss and fitness journey is to be able to live the life I imagined - with lots of travel! When you worry about how you fit on airplanes and if your feet can hold up to walking lots in metro areas, the thought of travel gets really intimidating. I'm getting the travel bug again. Well, I say that like it went away at some point, but it didn't. I just get a little stir crazy, I suppose. Next week I'm Continue Reading
