“Why am I doing this??” That is a literal question I ask myself at least once, if not several times, during each ride I set out on. Mountain biking for me is challenging, like really challenging. It pushes my body and mind to extremes that I haven’t experienced in any other sport or endeavor I… Continue reading Be Scared and Do It Anyway….
I have always been interested in human nature. Why people do the things they do. How much our upbringing plays a role in the person we become versus how genetics affect who we end up being. And lately, I have been wondering these very things about myself…more than I usually do anyway. Why have I… Continue reading Getting To Know Thyself…
Like most relationships, it is a ridiculously complicated one. Well, it used to be.

I have been finding myself increasingly craving sugar throughout my days as of late. This is more than a little odd for me because I am DEFINITELY Team Salt. I have, for as long as I can remember, craved salt. I normally always reach for the chips in the pantry over the cookies and can eat pickles… Continue reading Do I Need a Sugar Detox?
While I haven’t talked extensively about any one workout program I have done since starting my at-home workout adventure several years ago now, I am doing one currently that I feel an overwhelming need to tell you about.
