Opt outside: Getting my little into hiking.

Growing up where I grew up, there was never a shortage of outdoor activities. Hiking, paddling, exploring of any type was, and still is bountiful.

2020 was to be the year that I began focusing on expanding my personal training business back to what it was before having my son, and eventually making it my full time gig.

…and in to 2021 we go.

2021 intention: DO. My 2021 intention is a simple one. Do. Do what? Well, anything, everything, something. 2020 was a hell of a year. I’ve never written as much in one year as I did in 2020. But… I thought that was your job? Writing? Well, it is actually. Problem is, I was never given […]

Tales of Parenthood: Becoming “Sports Mom”.

Oh, dear. What have I done? It was the only thing I kept repeating in my head as I raced around our house, trying to make sure we had anything we’d need before we left – because we weren’t coming back to the house if something was forgotten. Bug spray. Hat. Catcher’s glove. Towel to […]

Tasty Tuesday: (Protein) Chocolate oat cookies.

There’s a backstory to the reason why I’ve gotten back on the “make your own protein, good for you snacks” train, but really, I know I just scroll by most of the “backstories” on other recipe posts, and not to mention – I’ve seen the abundance of memes popping up lately saying: Just get to […]
