The 2017 Madison Her Half Marathon was awesome.  It was a great experience, and one made better by the entire weekend, as well as my wonderful family.  It was a weekend of emotions, a weekend of finding strength, and the culmination of 6 months of training.  It was awesome. The course was well supported, with aid stations and portapotties every 1.5 miles.  This was key, as I always have to pee around 5-6 miles.  Every.  Damn.  Time. So starting off, I felt good.  My knees felt a little stiff, even after warming up, but I wasn’t concerned.  Perhaps I should have stretched/warmed up a littleRead More →

Today I ran my 2nd half marathon, the Madison Her Half Marathon.  The event that I’ve been training for since January 1st.  It’s been a long/quick six months, and not always easy nor as complete a training as I planned on, but it was rewarded.  I can say with full confidence that I will repeat this program I developed, and complete more of my scheduled workouts. (More on that later) I participated in the Weekend Experience for the Her Madison Half, knowing a little bit about it, but really knowing nothing.  One of my friends–and former client–ran it last year and convinced me to runRead More →

Hey there!! ICYMI Shaun Week is coming!  It’s also my birthday week.  I’m super excited to be kicking off my birthday week with Shaun. Truth be told, Shaun is probably my favorite trainer.  I love the bootcamp style workouts.  I really miss teaching INSANITY classes.  I am SUPER excited to have new workouts from him.  Yes, CIZE is new, but honestly I’m not into dance workouts.  I actually enjoy burpees, thank you. Shaun Week: Insane Focus is going to be in the style of Focus T25 (INSANITY precursor) and INSANITY.  The high intensity interval training (HIIT) is such an AWESOME way to burn fat andRead More →

I’m so glad you’ve found me! Dream Life Fitness has undergone several changes in the last year!  I had put my business on hold while I was pregnant with my son–and had been on activity restriction and bed rest with him.  Then, a few weeks before I delivered, we applied for and got a transfer position for my husband’s job, which was such a good move!  So we moved states, 2 months after I gave birth.  Now, just over a year later, I’m way more than ready to get back into business! Some of my previous content is gone–a result of switching website hosts.  IRead More →

Has 2014 been crazy for anyone else?  I feel like I lost all of March prepping for my daughter’s 1st birthday.  And April will slip away too if I don’t get on it.  April is going to be a big month for me, too, but I can’t lose focus.  How am I going to do that?  By making a plan/schedule and STICKING TO IT!  Finishing up P90X3, and the Elite Block, and getting ready to do the 21 Day Fix.  Super Saturday is the 12th, which is also my first INSANITY class.  If you’re in the Hubbard, Ohio area, come join me!!  Class is FREERead More →

 Monday is the day to order the 21 Day Fix!  It’s a revolutionary portion control system that will teach you how much to eat, giving you not only a visual, but a tangible way to learn portion control.  I’m so excited to have that system.  It’s going to be so helpful–just fill up the container with WHATEVER food you want in that food group and that’s what you can eat.  No food is off limits!  How cool is that?  You want some chocolate?  Put it in your container.  You want a glass of wine?  Ok!  The plan will tell you how you can have itRead More →
