Ya'll- if I hear this one more time I am going to stab myself in the eyeballs!! It is NOT selfish to care for yourself. It is actually necessary if you want to successfully care for anyone else. It all goes back to priorities.

I have no trouble prioritizing my exercise...

Ya'll- I always get kicked in the ass when I make assumptions. It happened today. You would think with all of my education and experience surrounding health that I would do my research BEFORE I assume. Nope, not a chance. I still assume (want) people to be who they say...

Very few problems cannot be solved under a barbell. This is a lesson I learned LONG ago. I am high strung to say the least. Call it what you like, type A, high maintenance, busy, driven, etc... whatever, I rarely sit down and I like things done a certain way. Although...

In life really. Consistency is such a non-sexy topic with long term results... how booooorrrrriiinnnngggg. We live in the world of RIGHT NOW. Everything we want and need can be obtained in an instant. Oh, how we are spoiled and delusional.

In keeping with yesterday's theme- let's talk a bit about why you should exercise... again. 

Today I did the hero workout Bowen. For those of you that don't CrossFit, a hero workout is a particularly hard workout that is named after a fallen hero. This one is particular...

I really dislike the word exercise... Webster defines exercise as activity requiring physical effort, carried out to sustain or improve health and fitness. Ugh, how boring and it sounds like work. Although I do like the fact that exercise makes me healthier overall, th...
