Summer Got Away From Us

Here we are sitting at one day until School starts up again and we don’t have much to show for our summer this year. It feels like we went everywhere around Seattle last summer and didn’t do a quarter of what we wanted to do this summer. Both Tracy and I were super busy at work so we ended up spending most weekends at home being bums. We wanted to do more outdoors stuff, but like the title says the summer kind of got away from us. We had an unplanned move across town to a new apartment (more pics...

Teaching her to be Strong

This past Friday school was out, so I brought the kiddo to work with me. It’s an adventure for her. A place to explore. For me, I’m learning it’s a place for me to teach her how to be strong, thoughtful, and independent now and as she grows into the woman she will become. It’s always in the back of my mind, but sometimes with all the things going on in our lives as moms, we forget how we are examples for our daughters to become strong women who can do whatever they want to be. On my wall at...

The War Inside My Head

Let me start off with this is not an easy subject to talk about. I try and be as open and honest on this blog as possible and even in life when it comes to getting healthy (almost too honest at times), but talking about mental illness is a whole other subject that a lot of people shy away from. And in being honest, I have to say that I’ve written and rewritten this post multiple times because I wanted to get my full message across, but I know I’ve forgotten some things, I’ve left out others, and well it’s...

Don’t be an Obstacle to Your Own Success

I think the last few posts I’ve made, I start out the same…”well it’s been awhile…blah, blah, blah”. The thing is, I could say it again, but I’m not going to. I’m starting this off with a challenge to myself, to write once a month. Honestly, for my mental health alone. I’ve talked about strength a lot before, but I keep coming back to it and it’s timely to talk about once again with all of the stories coming from the Olympics of strength, grit and sportsmanship. But how do we relate to the strength of an Olympian on our...

Believing in Yourself and Finding What Works for You

I started a new workout plan about a month ago.  It’s amazing!  And it’s a lifting program.  I’ve been wanting to do a weightlifting program for ages, but for some reason I kept holding myself back.  I’d go back to the same old routines, start one up and a week in I’d get bored.  Finally, I said: “Fuck it, I need to do the program that I want to do and not let what’s in my head stop me.”   The thing that I have learned over the last few years is if you want to be consistent with exercise,...

Being Honest and Going Back to Basics

Let’s start off with the fact that I’ve probably drafted about 5 different blog entries over the past 2 months but never finished a single one. The thing is, I haven’t completely found my rhythm yet with the new job, new city, new way of life and well, its hard folks. And with all that is hard in life, my weight has crept up and that is what I am going to talk to you about today. And here is another hard part…being honest. Being honest with all of you. And especially being honest with myself and what I have...
