Pushing past the FEAR
Happy Monday! Can you believe we’re about to CLOSE OUT February?! Ah!
This weekend was all about packing and moving – again – but also remaining positive for good things to come!
Positivity BREEDS positivity!

Motto/Inspirational Quote? No excuses. Just do the work.
What is your favorite way to workout/exercise MOVE! I love to RUN, but I’m also enjoying some new classes like SurfSet and Booty Barre. These sweat sessions burn tons of calories and challenge me in new ways.
What is your #1 indulgence? Aside from the occasional treat, how do you substitute it? Hmm, I try not to think of food as an indulgence, but I do like something sweet occasionally. I’ve found a cup of Cinnamon Rice Chex cereal usually hits the spot!
What’s your go-to snack? My go-to snack lately has been White Cheddar rice cakes. I’m a chip girl and these are low calorie, almost guilt-free 😉
What advice do you have for those starting on a fitness journey? First and foremost, don’t compare yourself to others. Focus on what YOU can do and go for it. Pushing yourself too far, too soon can lead to injury.
Bucket list destination/race/to-do? I would love to do an international race – anywhere will do 😉
Favorite inspirational fitness personality/trainer/idol? I really admire anyone who gets out there and works on being fit and healthy. It’s not easy and life gets in the way, so when I see someone working hard to achieve his/her goals, I’m inspired!
What workout apparel is your MUST have? I must have my Mizunos! Best shoes I’ve ever worn. I’m also a fan of Oiselle shorts and Athleta tights.
What do you wish you knew years ago that you know now? The 10% rule – I would have avoided so many injuries if I had just taken my time in the beginning. Even now, after sitting on the sidelines, it can be tempting to jump back in too fast. I’ve learned to be patient.
