Welcome December!!!  Twenty more days until the days start to get longer again!!  YAY!

This time of year can be such a whirlwind and can get really busy really fast.  And it is often wrought with lots of sweets and rich foods.  Just know you don't ever HAVE to...

I am a sugar addict.

Yup! 

I REALLY wish I did not like sugar and sweets, but that is my kryptonite.  

I've always had a sweet tooth, but I didn't always crave chocolate.  As I've gotten older, I now sometimes crave chocolate as well...  So I don't keep those things...

Oh Boy!

We changed things up a bit last week, and I. Was. Sore!!!

It's easy to get stuck in a workout rut, even if you don't think you're stuck in a rut.  For a long time we've switched workouts every day and have usually lifted lighter with more reps.  However, last wee...

It's marathon week!!!  In March, I signed up to run the St. George Marathon, just as I was getting back into running after a 10-week injury.  I was loving running and felt strong and confident that I could get back into marathoning and start setting some PR's (personal...

It SURE feels good to be back in a stable workout routine again!  We are killing it in the gym and have the sore muscles to prove it!  There's nothing like a healthy amount of soreness to make you realize how hard you're working... LOL!

I've had a few responses abo...

School is BACK in session!!!! 

This time of year is a little bittersweet.  I'm inwardly doing a happy dance so I can sleep a little more and have more time to run trails or ride my bike.  (And do all the basic mom things like shower, fold laundry, iron, make dinner, cle...

Last week I got to go on vacation with 47 of my relatives!  We went to Nashville, Tennessee for a few days and then to Gatlinburg in the Great Smoky Mountains.  It was amazing!!!  

I had really looked forward to running in the Smokies, but my body had dif...
