Lately, I've been dwelling on the frustration that my writing/posts/social media appear to be too scattered. What started off as a fitness blog and my platform for acquiring new online clients turned into my own online sanctuary for my personal writing, with subjects anywhere from art to functional training and everything else in between. I … Continue reading Vulnerability and Finding a Theme
My Move to Boulder, Colorado
I don't even know where the idea of Colorado came from. A little more than a year ago, I started to make plans to move to out west. When people ask me why I chose Colorado, I usually throw them the "why not?!" with a little verse about how I needed to leave the place … Continue reading My Move to Boulder, Colorado
Self Care and Ahimsa
With everything going on in the world right now, I've been thinking a lot about how important it is to practice self care. That may seem like the opposite of what is generally thought; most people think about how they can help others in times of tragedy and distress. But while helping others is commendable … Continue reading Self Care and Ahimsa
Ah, September - the gateway month that transitions us into my favorite season. (I say every season is my favorite season once we're in it, but transitioning months feel extra special to me!) The past couple of months have been wonderful, and while I have a number of different topics I'd like to write about … Continue reading September Update
Reading, Mindfulness and Finding Focus in the Age of Distraction
The other day, someone commented on the book I was reading - a novel in the Game of Thrones series - and added that he would so much rather follow the show on HBO. When I asked him if he has ever given the books a chance, he said that he just cannot stay focused … Continue reading Reading, Mindfulness and Finding Focus in the Age of Distraction
I am Enough
Today, I walked my favorite trail. It looked like it was going to rain all day, so no one was there and I was a little hesitant about putting my earbuds in. I ended up walking without music, trying to be as present as possible. I realized the last time I was there was January … Continue reading I am Enough
My Recent Breakup
Hey everybody, It’s been awhile, I know… eight months, to be exact. But the exciting part about taking a hiatus, at least for me, is that I always come back more inspired than ever! This year is my golden year. My best friend and I (whose birthday is also on the the 24th) were looking … Continue reading My Recent Breakup
Happy, happy New Year!
In light of the new year, I figured a new blog post was in order. I have nothing particularly spectacular to write about today, only that I am on my 9th straight day of positive awesomeness! If you're the kind of person that finds New Year's resolutions obnoxious and cliche, look away... and then come back … Continue reading Happy, happy New Year!
What is Functional Training?
How can you work on improving strength, flexibility, balance, mobility and your core all at once while constantly keeping your body challenged to be the strongest version of yourself? Functional training! When I started my first job as a personal trainer, I had a lot of freedom to coach and teach whatever I wanted. At … Continue reading What is Functional Training?
Love You Like Your Dog
Today, it rained for what seemed like 12 straight hours and my mood seemed to reflect similarly. I couldn't channel any motivation and when I got to the gym, I took one look in the mirror and wanted to just leave. Now, I know for a fact my body had the same circumference measurements, same body … Continue reading Love You Like Your Dog
