My First Color Run

Competitive Me? I’m not a competitive person. Well, that’s not completely true. I compete with myself to continue to become better at everything I do but I don’t find it fun to compete with other people. Growing up, I enjoyed activities that were basically individual but in a group setting (like dance and martial arts)….

Back Update

As you know from my last post, Channeling Jane Fonda, I decided to stop weight lifting because of back problems (spasms to be specific). Turns out that my instincts were right. I met with a physical therapist (per doctor’s orders) and he decided that the cause of the spasms is most likely due to my…

Healthy Buffalo Chicken

Hey Fit Divas! I haven’t shared any healthy recipes with you in a long time so I want to do that now. I was looking through my Pinterest “Good Eats” board for something to make and came across “Avocado Buffalo Chicken Wraps.” Um hello…avocado and chicken and wraps…so much yes! This recipe was so easy…

What is Beachbody?

In my last post, Following My Feet, I told you about my decision to become a Beachbody Coach. What I failed to do was tell you what the heck Beachbody is and what a coach does. Oops, my bad! So this post will tell you all about those two things.

I Ate Carbs!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I still can’t believe that it has come and gone already and there are only 22 days left until Christmas!  My husband and I happily inherited the tradition of hosting Thanksgiving dinner and have done so for the past few years. I really love having the families come…

Lupus Loop 2013

First, I have to thank you for taking the time to read my blogs, especially “Roar”.  That was my most-read blog to date and I’m so flattered because it was probably my most personal. So, thank you! I ran a 5k on October 27th. I’m not a runner. Sometimes I wish I was because I…

8 Reasons to Quit Soda

Here are 8 Reasons to Drink Water Instead of Soft Drinks: 1. Sodas are water-stealers! They steal water in order for the body to process the high amount of sugar contained in sodas. You’d need to drink 8-10 glasses of water for every 1 glass of soda in order to replace all the water that…

It Is What It Is

I’ve been on a very introspective kick lately. I’m not exactly sure what caused it but I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about “me” and how I can improve  grow. Part of it has been to work on my social goals, well goal. I’ve continued to find ways to get out of the house and be…

M.I.A.

I’ve had a bad case of blogger’s block since February 4th. I’ve really struggled to think of something that was interesting enough to share. I thought about describing some of my workouts but I felt that was too boring (although, if that’s something you’d like, let me know). I thought about sharing dinner recipes but I…

The Chocolate Touch

While the gang was watching the Superbowl, I decided to do some laundry and bake. I was in the mood for chocolate but the only kind we have in the house is in the form of chips. I’d be lying if I said I’ve never eaten them straight out of the bag. Hey, desperate times…
