So what do I do next?


I wanted to write this post because one of the questions I get e-mailed about the most is...what did you do when you finished the 24 Day Challenge?  When I answer this question I normally start by asking what the person's goals are now that they have kick started their weight loss.  Do they want to lose more weight, more inches, gain muscle, increase their endurance, see more muscle ...

Vermont Recap Part 1


Hello from Vermont!!!  Don't let this first photo fool you...10 hours of overnight travel time didn't always look this peaceful.  In fact, Shane decided to not sleep the entire red eye flight until we were landing which was around 2:00am California time.   So let's do the math....he was up Friday morning at 6:00am, only took an hour nap (normally takes a 2-3 hour nap), and then up until 2:00am. ...

2014 Surf City Half Marathon Recap


Hey...did you guys know I ran a half marathon last weekend?  You know, if I didn't have some photos and a medal I am not sure I would believe I did it either. I had been quiet about the race, these last few months, because I wasn't sure if I was going to even sign up in the first place.  Between taking 6 weeks off from running due to my surgery and then only having 5 weeks after that to train, ...

Treat Yourself Tuesday: My first Stitch Fix!


Linking up with Becky from Olives 'n Wine again this week for another Treat Yourself Tuesday Post.  Remember my first post that I did a couple of weeks ago about finding some time to pamper yourself?  Well, I wish I could say I have been following through with that.  The kids have been sick, our dog has been sick, I have been sick and I am lucky if I have treated myself to lunch or a shower this ...
