If there is anything I’ve learned through my fitness journey, it’s that fitness is an ever changing cycle. You gain fitness and (more often, easily) you lose fitness. And you know what. Here’s a secret: it’s OKAY. Your body is not meant to freeze and be the same exact way it has been for x amount of years. Yes, it is important to maintain a base and a healthy body, but I want you to know it is normal, if not expected to have certain seasons of peak fitness and other seasons of ‘off season’ fitness. And both are fine, good, and healthy.
Hey there friends and happy Wednesday, I know this blog post is coming a little later in the week than usual, but such is life, right? This past weekend was all sorts of good. Between some rest and downtime, games with friends, and a movie […]
Three plus years. That’s how long I’ve been free from an eating disorder. And you know what? Finding freedom from an eating disorder is still a choice. I will be honest and admit that there are days when I hear those same lies that I […]
Hello there and happy Friday! I am super excited to be heading into a quiet and restful weekend, with a few sprinkles of activities in there for variety! I’m hoping to get a long run in (before the rest of the house wakes up), work […]
Honestly, these past couple days, starting last Friday until today have been rough. Benaiah and I have been sharing a nasty cold, which means both of us are more tired and at least one of us (Niah) is a lot more cranky.
But, I hate not blogging as frequently as I normally do and feeling so disconnected from you all. So, I decided to at least share a few highlights from this week (and last weekend) here on the blog! I’m hoping this weekend we will be feeling a lot better, but we will see. I don’t normally get sick, but this time was an exception and once, again, I am quickly reminded how often I take the gift of good health for granted.
I truly believe that you can strive after fitness/ health/ fitness goals WHILE maintaining a balanced approach to nutrition. I’ve been on both sides of this before; I’ve lived through a terrible eating disorder and I’ve lived on ‘nutrition doesn’t matter THAT much,’ side of things. However, this year, I’ve realized how much good nutrition, balance, and discipline can affect my own running and fitness goals.
Oh hey there friends and happy Tuesday! I am coming at you this morning with a weekend recap and just a few photos to share. Man, I’ve been winning the worst blogger of the year award over here with epic fails on the photo department. […]
Christmas 2017 was my favorite Christmas of our married life yet. Not because everything was perfect or glamorous, but because we spent extra time together, slowing down and investing in one another. I really tried hard to make this Christmas extra special by slowing down […]
