Be-You-Tifully Fit: Must learn respect

I think sometimes it’s hard to really respect one mile of running.  Here I am training for 26.2 miles and I find myself having moments where I’m scoffing at a 5K.  Not sure where that came from but I needed to take a step back. One mile… Meant 20 minutes of pushing through in 2012 […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Toss her a burger.

  Some people don’t understand how seriously hard the last 10 lbs are until you’re stuck in them.  Like trying to climb through a mud pit and you can’t pull hard enough on that rope to get your foot out onto the solid ground.  (Yes…this girl who doesn’t like the mud just made a point […]

Be-You-tifully Fit – The Do’s and the Don’ts

So here it goes… Do run however you enjoy it! Don’t allow someone else’s ideas of what “running” is and isn’t upset you! Do hydrate.  Always hydrate.  You know your body! Don’t listen to other people who tell you things like the 5K doesn’t warrant a camelbak! Do play it as safe as you know […]

Be-You-tifully Fit – “Just” is a horrible word.

You may think I’m treating the word “just” unfairly as you read this.  And that’s ok.  The word gets a bad wrap from time to time. “I’m just running a 5K” …you do realize what you’re saying right?  You are running.  You are not only running but you are running 3 miles.  You have decided […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Respect the run.

I have learned over the last few months that it’s all about respecting the run.  Your body will have it’s good days and bad.  Your mood changes from moment to moment.  Your will is vulnerable to weakening from time to time BUT the run is always the same.  The miles are always there.  They may […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Bigger, more, lots.

SO.  I find it funny to myself in that weird not so funny way that my blog wasn’t working the week I was trying to introduce the new series.  PS…we also had a bunch of other things happening that I was dealing with BUT…it’s still on to the new.  The positive way of dealing with […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: No more chasin

Lately I have been discovering a lot of things about myself.  Since Hannah was born and the weight came off, I have not been the same.  I am simply not the same person I used to be.  I am not sad.  I am not negative.  I am not beating myself down.  I can go in […]

Chasing my Fit: Pregnancies, Fat Girls & Dresses

What a week.  What a week.  I’ve been a little upset and taken back by a couple things lately.  Honestly, I just don’t know what to say about them…well except for the flat out honest truth. 1.  Pregnancy does not ruin a body.  Choices can make or break your body.  Granted there are things that […]

Chasing my Fit: Beast to Beauty

My first mud run!  I am so sore from that experience.  I did not think that a person that has overcome the soreness feeling after a half marathon could feel the soreness this much from a 5 mile mud run!  HOLY MOLEY!  I have a whole new respect for them. This was a ton of steep […]

Chasing my Fit: Rocky…rough…whew.

    So it’s been a rocky last couple weeks. I’ve been weaning the baby and seeing a chiropractor to fix the back issues that were leading to a lot of running injuries. I say rocky because if you’ve ever weaned a baby, it takes a toll of you physically and emotionally. The chiropractic care […]
