Be-You-tifully Fit: Growing 

Training has been difficult this time around, but I am constantly reminding myself that is it is simply because all of this is new to me!  Sure, I can swim and bike but I could also technically run before I started couch 2 5K years ago too.  Now I am working on learning two in […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Overcoming Fear

  The good, bad and the ugly about pushing passed fears… You’re growing!  You’re terrified!  You’re sure you look out of place and are crazy self conscious.  That pretty much sums up the last seven weeks of triathlon training.  Thankfully I have a super knowledgeable and kind coach (IG @theunbreakableangel)  that is spoon feeding me […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Can we take a minute? 

Can we?  Can we just take one minute to say hello to abdominal lines?  They have been sporadically visiting me for the last 2 months while on the ketogenic diet but for the last week… Things have been getting pretty serious!   I will admit that part of me still cringes posting pictures like this.

Survey says…  FAT BURNING BEAST = AWESOMENESS!

Be-You-Tifully Fit: HR Train

Recently I finished reading both Keto Clarity and Primal Endurance.  I am not sure why I have decided to finally take the direction of a low carbohydrate lifestyle.  Honestly I love carbs…lot.  They are lyfe but they don’t love me like I love them.  Through my curiosity I read both of these books and fell […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: The end of the race season

The fall race season is not a big love of mine.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love the races that take place in this season, but I do not like the North Carolina summer start of training.  Just like the two years prior, this season burnt me.  Give me 50 degree weather and no humidity…I […]
