My journey into Crossfit

Earlier this year, I was talking to a good friend of mine and mentioned that I wanted to check out Crossfit as a means of exercise.  It turns out this friend of mine did Crossfit and it was how she got in the amazing shape she is in.  She told me about her Crossfit “box” (that’s . . . → Read More: My journey into Crossfit

A stress fracture and a fancy new shoe

God has a way of slowing you down when He wants your attention. 

I recently discovered that I have a stress fracture in my 2nd metatarsal on my left foot.  My guess is that it’s from jumping rope since I recently attempted to add that in as a fun way to exercise.  Let me tell you, . . . → Read More: A stress fracture and a fancy new shoe

Jump Ropes: They’re not just for kids!

Remember these?


Yesterday we bought one, and wow – those things are a lot harder than I remember!  Of course, I think the last time I used one was in elementary school.

I just turned 38 29 for the 10th time last week, so elementary school was a long, long time ago.  Evidently, I have lost some . . . → Read More: Jump Ropes: They’re not just for kids!

Rockfish Summer Camp Days 2, 3, & 4

Lovebug is having the BEST time at camp! This has been an amazing experience for her and she’s already asking if she can go next summer.  I’m so glad she’s loving it!  It makes for some very long days because I have to wake her up early, and she gets home late, but it’s worth it.  . . . → Read More: Rockfish Summer Camp Days 2, 3, & 4

Lovebug goes to Summer Camp

I dropped Lovebug off at camp this morning, and I think I was more nervous than she was.  It’s a Day Camp, so she will go every day from 8:00 – 6:00 and have a fun filled day full of outdoor activities, crafts, swimming, and even a field trip to go bowling one day.  It’s not . . . → Read More: Lovebug goes to Summer Camp

My 30 day Paleo Challenge

For the past 30 days, I have been following a strict paleo way of eating (I don’t like the term ‘diet’). I haven’t mentioned it before because I wanted to complete the self-imposed challenge first and see how it went.

There is more to it, but to sum it up quickly, this means no grains, dairy, . . . → Read More: My 30 day Paleo Challenge
