Cross Country My Heart Is Happy

When Miss Faith had decided to get out of the pool and hang up her swim fins two years ago, I was so bummed.  She just had the most natural way about her in the water and picked up on swimming as a competition right away.  Her butterfly stroke was AMAZE balls!  However, as kids will do, she just decided to stop that sport and give something else a try. I know, I know, we are to be nothing but supportive when it comes to our kids.  Don’t push them or force them into something that they will in turn end up hating or even resenting us for, but I can’t help it, I just loved going to swim meets and hanging out all day.  The water, the smell of the pool, the bags of towels and clothes, the locker rooms, the waiting in between events, the “cups of sodium”…  Read More…

Runtastic Orbit Has Arrived

I am so super jazzed to be sharing the latest with you.  Okay listen, I am not the most tech savy gal out there and I am NOT really into gadgets or the newest and latest {I still have my Samsung Galaxy S 2 and the original IPod shuffle} so yeah, I am sort of behind.  However, I am up to speed with the app Runtastic Orbit and the Me App.   Thanks to Fit Approach and Runtastic who so kindly reached out and sent me this newest gadget.  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, as with most new things that require downloading and connecting, etc.  With easy step by step instructions, I was able to get my Runtastic Pro and Me App up and running on my Android Phone. The timing is perfect, as I am getting ready for my next half marathon and training is under way. …  Read More…

Getting Away In Healdsburg

We are smack in the middle of summer and I don’t know about you, but this has been all about keeping busy right near our own home.  With baseball season going long this year and Noah starting football camp 4 weeks ago, it made it a bit difficult to get away.  Okay, we could have if we wanted to, but being in the playoffs was a big deal for us and Noah is starting is Freshman year this August and football camp is key {especially as a newbie}.  So, this means making the best of what is near by. That brings us to our most current get a way from home.  We went to visit Healdsburg, CA.  If you are not familiar with the area, it is about an hour and half north of Sonoma and just as quaint.  There is shopping, art galleries, food, bakeries, coffee and the Oakville…  Read More…

Have You Tried Surf Set?

I am always saying we need to “step out of our comfort zones and just try new things”.  Well I put my words to the test last month when I attended the Fit Approach  Summer Solstice  event at Sweat Republic  in San Francisco. The event was introducing a  Surf Set class.  When I saw that my fellow “sweat pink” gurus were putting this on, I had to attend.  I love my sweat pink sistas  and am always up for meeting them whenever possible. ♥ First thing first, I had to make sure my hubby got home from work early that afternoon so he could get me to the city on time.  It was Nascar weekend here in Sonoma, so the traffic was a bit of a challenge getting out of here and I knew the clock was ticking to get there in time, follow the GPS directions to the event and…  Read More…

#FuelYourBetter With #Vega

It’s all about #Vega  again.  I LOVE this brand and all of their products.  I am sharing today Vega Sport Energizer PRE-Workout.  Thanks to Fit Approach and Vega, I was given a box to try and used this for my half marathon training. ♥ Question for you … how do you #FuelYourBetter? Since running more now in order to prep for my very first half marathon {yikes}, I have been using Vega Pre-Workout Energizer before heading out the door.  I love that Vega is plant-based.  I had not tried this particular product of theirs yet, so I was excited to receive it.  Following directions, I drank this about 20 mins {give or take} right before heading out the door for a run.  As with any product, I did wonder if I would be able to notice a difference. I was NOT disappointed!  Holly run.  I can’t believe the how great…  Read More…

Because We Are Moms

From the moment they arrive in this world, we take on an entire new set of feelings and emotions.  We become instantly protective, our hearts grow bigger, our souls fall in love.  We are more intuitive, we are awakened and aware.  We become more emotional than we were.  We are able to grow instinct like we have never had before.  We hear and see everything differently.  We become caretakers, we are more watchful, we are sensitive to everything around us.  We are about to embark on to the most amazing, confusing, stressful and wonderful journey of our lives.   We become Moms ♥ There are no instruction books for this job that has all of the sudden fallen onto us.  There are no guidelines, there are no rules, sometimes there is no rhyme or reason.  We just figure it out.  We go with the flow, we learn as we go. …  Read More…
