Midsummer Reflections

Good afternoon! As I sit here during my lunch break on this ever so hot July day, I realize that the year is over half way over. Heck, it’ll be Christmas before we know it!! As the dog days of summer wane on and the heat remains oppressive I start to dream of fall. Of flannels, fun decorations, and of course- pumpkin spice EVERYTHING! Fall also brings my 45th birthday and my next powerlifting meet Continue reading Midsummer Reflections

Mission Statement

Good afternoon! It’s been a while since I have posted. Things have been so busy!! I am training for my next powerlifting meet as well as yoga teacher training.

A picture says a thousand words. So what does this picture say to you? This was taken at my first powerlifting meet on May 6th. I competed as an 84kg novice in the first annual USAPL Atlanta Women’s Open. I am so happy that I trained for and competed in this event.

Asanas and Attitude Adjustments

Tight hips prevent me from being Continue reading Asanas and Attitude Adjustments

#discover2015

I am so excited about the new year. I am looking forward to saying goodbye to 2014. Every year I like to make some goals for the year. In 2014 my main goals were to run a Spartan Race and to complete a 50K. I am very proud to say that I worked my behind off, never gave up, and ultimately completed both of these goals. I also ran ALOT of races in 2014. ALOT. Continue reading #discover2015
