When it rains. In your car.

I read a quote recently that how you start your day is how you are going to live your day. And how you live your day is how you are going to live your life.

While I do agree that how you live your days is a pretty good indicator of how your life is going to go, I have a long way to go in getting my mornings in a place to set the tone for the day.

Like riding a bike

May 3, 2016

I pulled up in my driveway yesterday after a longer-than-usual commute home from the day J.O.B. (Did you know Michigan has two seasons? Winter and construction? It’s a real thing!), half listening to the conversation I was having on the phone, half thinking that I need to get my driveway re-concreted, half thinking about the […]

How do you eat an elephant?

April 11, 2016

Stumped? One bite at a time. I have heard this joke quite a few times recently as I have delved deeply into the world of what was one called “self-help” and now I think better proclaimed as “personal development.” At least that’s what I like to think of it as. Obviously no one is going […]

Do I Even Lift?

April 7, 2016

A strange thing happened to me today. I have been missing something in my ridiculously crazy busy life and know it is largely in part that I have not been able to write my usual novel posts. This pretty little blog space that I am paying a good amount for hosting fees, has been quite […]

On fear

October 2, 2015

Well hello… life. I miss my happy little corner of the internet, but as much as I plan on sitting down and taking the time to write, days, weeks, MONTHS go by.. and here I am. No major explanation. Just shifted priorities. It’s funny; I used to stress out almost daily checking out my blog […]

You don’t know who you inspire

June 29, 2015

“Wow, that was amazing!” the unfamiliar face said to me with wide eyes and a big smile while I was standing up after being exhausted from pushing the 360# sled across the turf. I smiled back at the very petite mother of two, who looked like she weighed no more than 100# herself, impressed at […]

June 28, 2015

Well hello from the blog-slacker.. I just realized the last post that I published was the June swap… oops! I guess life has been taking a bit of a priority lately and my little corner of the internet has been on a bit of a hiatus! I left my job of six years to take […]

Scaling is relative.

May 27, 2015

Today I did one of the historically hardest workouts that I had ever done in my Crossfit history for the second time; but this time I did the WOD at 20# less. Yesterday, I completed Murph for my third time, both times prior I did it RX, though this week I scaled. Another #murph in the […]

Closing one chapter and learning to compartmentalize

May 21, 2015

A while back I had somewhat of what I would call a Crossfit-induced identity crisis. I am the kind of person who tends to go all-in with things. I get fixated on something and then everything else around me gets blurred out and then it might go from one vice, or obsession to another. In […]
