worst blogger ever.

Holy cow, I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post. Clearly, my priorities are askew. We moved. Started renovating like crazy. Ellie turned one. Still renovating. I work a lot. Still renovating. Josh travels a lot. We renovate. That’s life right now! Our biggest project – the guest house – is almost […]

The Opens (Why I’m Crazy)

Jake, is the head coach of a CrossFit box in Arkansas. I’ve had the pleasure of taking his class, being coached by him and watching him develop into a wonderful trainer and athlete. He’s one of those annoying people who can envision himself performing a skill or moving heavy weight and actually do it.  He […]

24 Day Challenge: Week 3

The challenge ended on Sunday. In typical fashion, I was delinquent in my blogging efforts because I was too busy telling the world I spent the last 24 days sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free. I lost over 10lbs. Five inches from my waist and two inches off my hips. To celebrate, I ate the icing of the […]

24 Day Challenge: Week 2

  (She’s the perfect CrossFit partner! She hung out for 21-15-9 of dead lifts and sit-ups RX weight of 155# and I finished in 3:29. Then 5×5 back squats at 185.

Anyways, one of the things I tend to be horrible at is eating consistently clean. I will do wonderful for about a week. But […]

My blogging hiatus has come to an end. I’m sitting on the couch with another super squishy baby on my lap. She looks just like her big brother. And I was nervous about having another baby. Would I love her like I love Jack? Would my heart be divided? Was it fair to either child? […]

The cult of CrossFit.

I love working out. Always have, always will. In an effort to do things together, my rock star husband will work out with me. He comes to my fitness classes, always standing in the front or grabbing the spin bike nearest me. He cheers, he hoots, he hollers, he whines, he complains, he hobbles around […]
