It’s time for this mama to change up the habits. I’ve basically been training for a marathon since last August, and now I just need a break. I have been on a training schedule for so long, which has made it difficult to do anything else in life. It’s time to change up the habits. I just want to workout to just workout and not be an on schedule. I don’t want to need to worry about getting things done early on a Friday night because I have a four-hour long run Saturday morning. I don’t want to worry about… View Post

It’s been a long two weeks of traveling, but I’m glad to be telling you about my experience The Flying Pig Marathon. If you’ve been a long time reader, you might remember I attempted Flying Pig three years ago but switched to the half because I found out I was pregnant. I went back to claim my marathon that I missed three years ago. I don’t want to bury the lead. I had a FABULOUS time at the Flying Pig marathon. Flying Pig is a race weekend for everyone.

I learned along the way that healthy living encompasses the mind, body, and soul. That’s where I am today. Trying to balance it all and encourage others to tackle the journey they think is impossible. Most importantly, I am a mom to a beautiful 2-year-old who is referred to as Tiny Tot on this blog. Weight loss is the catalyst to it… View Post

Sometimes I feel like women people say they want a family or are pregnant, there’s just a bunch of negativity that automatically comes back.  The world is suddenly filled with all the things you “can’t” and “won’t” want to do.  It’s more than unfair that people expected me to give up my dreams or dim my light due to the fact I was a popping put a baby. Why as a woman are we challenged by what we want to do when having a child, but a man isn’t? One tough mother can find a way to find her “all.”… View Post
