Be-You-tifully Fit: Even he needs a little help

This past week the hubby and I were sitting down talking about what we have going on for the fall/winter time.  The kids’ activities’ schedules have already begun to come in and my training plan is already chosen.  He has been holding back doing things he has wanted due to work and timing.  I could […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Results are in!

I finished the She Sweats Run Builder program! It was 12 weeks of lifting, HIIT and different running workouts. For me, this was the first actual weight lifting program I have fully completed. I really enjoyed it! The mix up of things to do each day and differences in segments was refreshing. After being in […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Memorial Day

The hubby & I challenged ourselves this morning with the Murph WOD to honor the fallen.  No vests or body armor and modifications for the pull-ups & push-ups BUT I completed it.  Honestly, it scared me looking at the upper body needed for this.  I can and have done 300 squats in a day before. […]

Bridges & Hills: MCM, Battleship Half & Old Glory Ultra

Be-You-Tifully Fit: But do your pants still fit?

You’d think that I’m down about 100 lbs from my heaviest so a couple pounds fluctuating would not bother me too much.  Well it does.  It always does.  You can’t escape that tiny little irrational voice in the back of your head.  I know that the increase must be due to the addition of strength […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: The In Between.

And here I am.  In the in between.  The in between with 2 marathons.  One completed and one coming.  I feel strange calm to be truthful.  I expected to be on edge but I think I spent all of those nerves last week.  I know that my heart can push me through this and when […]

Fit foodie: Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving was a rare and special one.  We had family coming over.  Being a military family, that is as rare as it comes for most.  It’s hard and expensive…but it is one of the greatest gifts!  Since we were so blessed, I had the chance to cook…but not just that really cook…like for a […]

Runiversary!

September 19th marks a very special day for me. It is my runiversary. The day that I decided to stop telling myself that I would never be a runner. As children, we grow up learning and believing there are simply things that we can and cannot do. If we say something enough, we start to […]
