I took my first Crossfit class on March 25th. As I'm writing this post, I can't believe that I'm even writing it. Now, I have to be honest with you; for a few years, I've given Crossfit major crap. Everyone who I'd seen or followed was either super fit, super good looking or super impressive … Continue reading One Month In.
Last week, I took my three kiddos hiking at the Andres Institute of Art all on my own. I packed my bag, got my hiking boots on and dressed them up as warm as possible.It's a really great hiking spot for the kiddos because they get to see some pretty sweet art sculptures.

Aside from experiencing burnout, I realized I haven't been taking any of my vitamins or supplements on a regular basis. I mean, it's normal right? When life gets chaotic, sometimes your good habits get replaced by bad habits, such as being over-caffeinated to compensate for feeling like garbage. I've started drinking more decaf coffee and … Continue reading Self-Care: My Vitamins & Supplements
