Happy Tuesday, everybody! I usually post on Monday but I’m thinking Tuesdays will be better. It’s honestly just hard for me to take the time to write on Sundays after having a busy weekend. I need a day to just chill, who feels me? Anyway! What a great week I’ve had! First of all, I …

Pushing for Those Goals

Pushing for Those Goals

Happy Monday, everybody! I hope your week is starting off great! 🙂 I went into this past week still dealing with foot pain thanks to my 6.2 mile trail run I mentioned last week. It was a little frustrating not being able to run but I didn’t want a small injury becoming a big one. …

Why I Didn’t Step On The Scale This Week

Why I Didn’t Step On The Scale This Week

It all started with giving into my runger (intense hunger brought on by a run!) on Sunday after I ran hard at the Women’s Fitness Festival 5k. It just kind of never stopped all week. Everything I ate was technically healthy but my calories consisted of mostly carbs such as crackers, pretzels, bagels, and breads. …

Race Recap – Run Around the Rice 5k

I had debated for a few weeks whether I should participate in this race or not. I knew my dad would be in town, it was almost an hour drive away, and I had a 19 month old to plan around. My running friend Kelsey started telling me I needed to do it because she …

I’m Just 1 Pound Away…

Happy Monday! This was the 2nd and final week of the Sweating Awesome Facebook Accountability Group. I loved this group because we lifted each other up and they helped me A LOT. I stuck to my goals, got back on track with eating, and I lost 2 more pounds this week for a total of …

My Perfect Runner Mother’s Day

My Perfect Runner Mother’s Day

I’m starting Motivation Monday by appreciating my calf muscles in this photo! I’ve always been very self-conscious of my legs. It feels so good to see them getting leaner and getting stronger! It was week 1 of my accountability group on Facebook. These ladies have helped me immensely for the past 7 days! I was …

Race Recap -Sutter Buttes Spirit Mountain Run 5k

All week I had been preparing to run in the world’s smallest mountain range, the Sutter Buttes! I knew this was a bigger race so I wanted to have realistic expectations. Instead of setting my sights on a medal, I set my goal to be a new personal record time for 3.1 miles. My husband told …
