Be-You-Tifully Fit: Why Hello PR!

Not Puerto Rico…I wish!  I hit a huge personal record.  Kinda giving myself an MVP for the year.  Okay yes yes yes…I’m the only one playing but that means I can also give whatever titles I want to myself!  This last weekend was the Marine Corps Half Marathon.  I had missed the chance last year […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: One year since baby

It’s been a year…a whole year already!  I look at my baby girl and I am in total denial.  I look at me in the mirror and I’m in total denial.  THEN I look at a comparison picture and I am in shock.  Yes, I was swollen and 3 days post labor but trust this…that […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: They’re just numbers!!

I’ve learned so much on my journey.  There are a few things that I’d like to point out for people because I find them to be necessary to remember. First, food.  There is good food and there is bad food.  If it’s packaged and has a long shelf life like a lot of the diet food […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Short & Sweet

I’ve been slacking.  It hasn’t been in the fitness or the eating but in the blogging.  I figure that’s a pretty darn good improvement since in the past I would have tossed my hands in the air and said whatever with it all when things got rough! Leaving this intro short and sweet though.  I’ll […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Can’t catch up!

It’s been a while since my last Be-You-tifully Fit blog.    I’ve honestly been trying to keep up but I haven’t had enough time to think of something to say.  My life has been a little crazy lately.  After the 6 weeks of less than awesome lungs from the cold I had, I have been […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: The unwanted workout

Well well well…what a month it has been!  After a month of an upper respiratory infection and loads of allergies, I have found an ab workout that I never wanted but holy moley it has worked!  I have been trying to manage keeping up with marathon training and the final few pound loss before my […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Long Running Support.

Long run #1 done! It has been a week here that’s for sure.  Celebrated my birthday.  Prepared and weathered Hurricane Arthur.  Enjoyed an amazing Independence Day run with the Stroller Warriors workout in the middle of it…without a stroller too!  Took a week hit of upper respiratory yuck.  Finally, recovering after steroids, cough medicine and […]

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 […]
