I Never Thought I’d Say This Sentence: A Kardashian Inspired One of My Workouts!

February 8, 2017

Recently, while flipping through the channels, I stumbled upon a new show called “Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian.” I’m not a Kardashian fan, and have never watched any of their shows, but two days later, as a result of tuning in, I completed a killer workout on some awesome stairs.

Nice backlit selfie, right? I was in Orange County for work on Friday. I finished at 6pm – the worst possible time to hit the road for the hour-plus drive home. So I stalled by going for a run in a super cool location! Read the rest of this entry »


I Left Town for a Weekend Getaway… and Stumbled Upon Some Awesome Public Stairways!

January 18, 2017

I spent the weekend in San Clemente, California – a small beach town in Orange County. My entire family gathered there to celebrate my mom’s birthday, and my sisters and I stayed active by going on long walks both days.

Two Hikes: One Historical, One Completely Illegal

January 16, 2017

2016 Year-End Progress Report AND the Debut of My Brand New Weight Loss Chart!!

January 4, 2017

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the post I look forward to all year long. Every month I share my weigh-in results and workout progress report. But at the end of the year (or, actually, the start of the year, since this is January 4th) I take a step back, and instead of focusing on one month, I focus on the whole goddamn year. 

And, in order to do that, I’m going to need an assist from…My brand new weight loss chart!
