Yep. Still On Hiatus.

As you should be able to ascertain from the title of this entry, I am still on hiatus.  Why you may ask? Well, for one thing, this Polar Vortex has me preeeety much not wanting to do anything.  At all.  I must be part bear because, aside from the absolutely necessary, I’ve been staying inside.  It’s too freaking cold.  The other day, I was wearing a wool cap around my house because not even my house knows how to operate when it’s -10 degrees outside.  Giggles has learned how to help with the dishes and how to load the washing machine.  THAT is

Hiatus

I keep forgetting to post this little note and I have found myself with a miraculous minute to spare, in between things-that-must-be-done, to let you all know that, yes, I am still alive. I also wanted to note that I am on a bit of a blog hiatus at the moment. While I’ve been super busy with holiday shenanigans, I also haven’t really had anything mind blowing to share. And I felt like I was writing more out of obligation than anything else there for a bit. #lame In 2014, I hope to have some new recipes, some more tips

Searching for Post Show Balance

Balance.  I am working on balance this week folks.  And for the next few weeks, probably. Last week was super hard for me.  I was more tired than I can remember.  I had fully anticipated being “free” after my show.  But there was no break to be had.  I went back and hit the gym hard.  And luckily I had done some pre-planning for Giggles’ 2nd birthday and birthday party.  It’s a good thing I did too because if I hadn’t, I would have been in really big trouble!  (Fear not.  Thanks to the help of checklists and organization to

How I Won

How can I even begin to write one simple blog post that can adequately explain to you everything I felt and am feeling now my first bikini competition has come and gone?  Simple.  It can’t be done. I had so many lovely comments on my Instagram feed in the days leading up to the show, and on show day, and since.  So many of you that I have never met, and may never meet, but whose encouragement has meant the world to me.  Thank you all so much for asking after me and cheering me on. To my Coaches, Shane and
