Do More Yoga, And Do More NOW!

Imagine this going on around you: But imagine this is all you hear: There’s only one thing that can make that happen.  Yoga. If you haven’t noticed through the past few Fitness Fridays, yoga hasn’t really been present in my workouts.  Quite honestly, that’s not okay.  And I’ve felt the effects.  Mentally, physically, emotionally. Something’s got to change.  There’s got… Read more »

Fitness Friday // Want to join in?

Yesterday started the kick off of the Fit Mixer bootcamp.  You’ll have to excuse me as this is only the beginning of my talking about it.  The bootcamp goes on for 12 weeks and while I don’t plan to talk about it everyday, I do plan to check-in regularly.  This is for me as much as it is for you. … Read more »

If you’ve been reading for awhile, you may remember that time last year when I decided to go back to school.  If you’ve been reading for a little while, you may remember when I decided I couldn’t afford that idea anymore and had to stop. You may remember that my idea was to go back to school to get my… Read more »
