I’m scared. Just thinking about this post and writing it, has filled me with anxiety. But I’m a huge proponent of vulnerability. Showing up in truth and candor. And owning it all.

And just like any hardship, I know this is exactly how I’ll make it through to the other side of this brokenness and struggle. I will stare up at the bar. I will grip it tightly.

Today, I arm wrestled my mother. We were out at a family breakfast at one of our favorite places and she challenged […]
You guys. This gym I go to, it’s SERIOUS BUSINESS. I mean…it is HARD CORE. Planks and push ups, wall sits and box jumps. TRX bands and battle ropes. Mountain Climbers and Burpees. Jumping jacks and boxing. There is absolutely NO SCREWING AROUND. Well. That’s mostly true. Most of the time. Here’s the thing, we […]
Monday Funnies – Because it’s Monday. And we all want our weekend back. But we can’t have it for another four days. So, yeah…MONDAY FUNNIES are what we need. In this week’s Monday Funnies, we are exploring the Gym. I think many of us have a love/hate relationship with the Gym. Perhaps even more of […]
