Humpday Hodgepodge


I have no idea how it is Wednesday already. I wanted to share a hodgepodge of things, so I guess humpday is a good day to do so! 1. I'm up for Best Weight Loss blog at Fitness Magazine! I wrote a while back about why I want more people in the traditional fitness arena to know about me and others like me who aren't striving for a certain clothing size, but are focusing on living a healthy life. If you are so inclined, I would love if you would Continue Reading

Boot Be Gone

I'm happy to report that the boot is now off of my foot, and hopefully for good! I still have pain and stiffness, but I'm getting bumped up to physical therapy 3 times per week (versus 2) to work on strength and flexibility in that foot.

In the end, I'm glad I got it because we all need some color and pattern in our lives! Holli with Chris Mann (current contestant on Team Christina Continue Reading

Shiny Things


First, I am really, really thankful for all of the comments, tweets, and Facebook messages about my post about finding life. Sometimes there are things that I struggle with really voicing, and I am really glad that it has resonated in a way that 1) confirms I'm not crazy; 2) makes me realize I'm not alone. How many times have you felt like you were all alone in a struggle, only to find out others have either been there as well, are battling Continue Reading
