How to Make Your Own Fitness Challenge

Today marks DAY 5 of my 10-Day Ballet Challenge and I’m LOVING it! Ballet is exercise that I enjoy, and although it’s a work-out it doesn’t feel like work in the same way that some exercise does. And as someone who easily succumbs to decision fatigue, I love waking up and knowing my…

When Weight Loss Becomes Overwhelming

I have spent a good decade plus being active.  I remember the first night that I decided to make the trip to the gym at my University and make a change in my health 13 years ago.  I even remember the exact clothes I was wearing.  I’ve grown a lot in my health since then,…

Don’t Make A New You, Be A Proud You…

After a month long hiatus, happy belated New Year readers!  My goodness it has been quite a busy month since I last wrote to you.  But I’m back, and the new year is a fresh new start as it is for millions of people across the world.  I’m excited for the new year, to be…

Have Yourself A Merry Guilt Free Holiday

I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing…

Last Minute Holiday Gifts For Fitness Junkies 2016

Aw, tis’ the season.  Winter storm Decima blasted her way through this weekend leaving us with first, another foot of snow, and then freezing us with -10 weather (-20–25 with wind chill), making it hard to go outside much less do all of the Christmas shopping we needed done.  But we did it, despite the…

December Goals

When I feel the first chill in the air from winter, I think back to my days of watching Gilmore Girls, when Loralai always gets out of the house no matter what time of day or night it is and stands in the open air….because she smells snow.  I too get that excited when I…

On Catcalls and Miami

After weeks of disbelief, this afternoon I thought to myself, “Oh! Of course. Of course our country didn’t elect a woman as President.”  Of course we didn’t. Because there are men in this country who can navigate a roundabout with their head completely stuck outside the window of the food…

Knowing When To Give Yourself A Break

Hello Marguline readers! It has been over a month since my last post, but the expression of being busy is an understatement. I’m sitting in my new home right now as I’m writing this blog post. I’m living in Wisconsin again, and I’m now writing from where we hopefully will be settling for a long time. …

Race Season Begins: My Marathon Playlist

I have a confession to make, all.  I didn’t really get to run as much as I wanted to this summer.  Part of the reason was I had to take a little break since my marathon in May, but part of it was because it was so damn hot! I still ran, but I focused…

Fall Recipe Series: Guest Blog! Delicious Crock Pot Meatloaf

  I’ve been so excited for Fall to get here, if you couldn’t tell from my last post.  It’s truly my favorite time to work out.  It’s not too cold yet, the weather is perfect, and the scenery outside is just breathtaking.  I always feel very bittersweet with Fall, just simply because I enjoy the…

5 Eerie Podcast Musts For Your Fall Workouts

Last Monday I woke up, dressed for work in a sleeveless shamrock green dress, stepped outside to walk to my car and OH!…it was chilly.  For the first morning since early March in Kentucky, there was a slight chill in the air, goose bumps appeared on my arm, and there was a certain smell in…
