I’m just popping in this morning to share my week of training and a few meal ideas. We got back late last night from a day of playing with cousins. We’re making it a tradition to get all the cousins together the day before Easter for egg hunts, craft projects and good food!

I think this has been my favorite month so far. Baby J just hit 8 months! I’m also linking up with Brittany for Munchkin Meals.
She is now on the move but not officially crawling yet (thankfully! Life will be busy soon.) She’s scoots around while sitting but is constantly getting on all fours [...]

At least I’m not injured.
That’s what I keep telling myself. What a bizarre week! My body just refused to complete my running workouts last week. So what can you do?
Looking back over my training records, I can see the previous two weeks were a significant jump in intensity and mileage. This was coupled [...]

How are you? I’m writing this in advance because my friends will be here for a girls weekend and I’m stepping away from the computer. Yay! I can’t wait to catch up with them.
As I mentioned on Friday, I took an unplanned cutback week this week because my legs were just spent! I’ll share [...]

Ironically, the week that I’ve been trying to check out all the functions of the new Ironman One GPS+ watch, my body has asked me to stop running. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a clear message before that wasn’t injury-related.
I felt sluggish and tired in the ten mile race two weeks ago, [...]

I feel like I’m repeating myself a lot these days talking about the challenge of balancing everything. This is supposed to be my peak week of training and it isn’t exactly going as planned, although I’ll get more into that later!
When life is busy and full, our meals get more and more simple. Here’s [...]

I just realized it was almost exactly two years ago that I held my first sugar detox challenge, can you believe it? Since then, I’ve had hundreds of women complete the challenge with me. And I don’t think it will ever get old.
Who doesn’t need to ditch the sugar for a week [...]

The countdown is definitely on now. This is the last big peak week for my marathon training plan and then I’ll start cutting back for the taper. As I was heading out the door yesterday, my husband said, how about no more marathons until the girls are in school? I had to chuckle and I [...]

This training cycle has been tougher than I expected. I realize I have a lot on my plate- full time mom, running my health coach business, blogging and training for a marathon. Plus there are those “extras” that I’ve said yes to- the hour of volunteering at my daughter’s preschool each week, a regular guest [...]

A few weeks ago, I started this series on the negative voice and explained the importance of catching that negative voice and stopping it or talking back to it, or even journaling out a rebuttal.
When left unchecked, those negative thoughts gain too much power and we begin to accept them as truth.
Negative thoughts [...]
