FasciaBlaster® review, and how it changed my workout recovery.

(This is a sponsored review. I received these products for free, in return for my review after using them for a bit.) Honest confession: My post-workout recovery approach is enough to make anyone cringe. Or at least my post-workout recovery before I had my son. As a personal trainer, I knew the importance of it.

Motivation Monday: Reassessments.

Every year is a year full of growth through various aspects. Usually, the most growth is experienced in my professional fields, and in fitness. Last year wasn’t any different. Despite hitches in the “program” of life, I had probably my most successful year with the weights, and even on the pavement with my running. I […]

Selfcare: Taking time on mental wellness.

There are very few things in life that you absolutely cannot change. How you chose to live is not one of those things. I was 10 years old when my mental wellness began to shift. Only 10 years old. It almost consumed me, depression, as I grew older. It sat there, in the driver seat, […]

‘Tis the season! Treat yourself to Stitch Fix, risk free!

(*This is a sponsored post as I am Stitch Fix Influencer.) One of the things I established pretty early on about myself is: I’m a terrible sales person. Yes. I probably couldn’t sell you ice to build your igloo, tires to replace your completely treadless ones, etc. But, if it’s something I really love? I […]

Tasty Tuesday: Protein Cookies.

If you’ve been around for awhile, you know my ever-long dilemma of finding good, tasty treats, packed with protein – but not the kind of carbs you consume on Thanksgiving day like so many of the pre-made high protein options on the store shelves. It’s a battle. There’s a lot of great efforts out there. […]

Medal Monday: The Race That Almost Beat Me.

I’ve run countless road races, of many distances. I’ve struggled to get to the end of some. Others were smooth like butter. Saturday’s race was definitely more of the former. A lot more. So much more, that I can say, after it was all said and done: It was my absolute, worst run ever. It […]
