“no habit is an accident” – month 10: 21 day #leadinluon integrity challenge

For starters, I can’t believe it’s month 10 (!!!!) of this yearlong challenge. The 2014 new year feels like yesterday…no really, I’m not even being clichè! Secondly–in a way, procrastination has really paid off for me so far this October (ha).  I hadn’t gotten around to picking my next ‘habit’, and was even contemplating giving it a … Continue reading

sck. favorites: all-natural health remedies

In the grand scheme of things, thus far in my life, I’ve been incredibly healthy. Sure, I’ve had some sprained ankles, lower back injuries, tonsillectomy, wisdom teeth removed, and a major bout with depression– but I’ve never so much as had a debilitating disease, broken bone, or even a cavity! Yet for the health woes … Continue reading

“no habit is an accident” challenge, month 9: #simplyselflove—final recap

*This post is well overdue, and I will let that be that! There were times this past month when I felt convinced this challenge would also result in failure. But as I’ve continued to learn over the course of this year, no habit starts or gets broken overnight. What I also learned is that the … Continue reading

on “faith in chaos”

In my junior year of college, our field hockey coach unanimously (I presume) declared our theme for that season as “faith in chaos”. This phrase was somehow represented by the “π” (pi) symbol and was imprinted on all our gear. I’m sure you can see the connection between “π” and ‘faith in chaos’, too. (Eye roll). Considering I … Continue reading

“no habit is an accident”challenge month 8: #simplyselflove + #mirrormantras

When thinking about this month’s “no habit is an accident” challenge, I knew I wanted it to be something that kept me focused and working on my top 14 for 2014. I also knew it needed to be something I could simply incorporate into my already jammmm-packeddddd day to day. Maybe even something that made … Continue reading

“no habit is an accident” challenge: month 7 – #simplysquatsandcore final recap

The funny thing about this month’s #simplysquatsandcore challenge is that I undeniably failed. Straight up. Surprisingly (or not surprisingly), I learned a lot about myself in that ‘failure process’.  I started off strong, increasing my time and reps on plank holds, body weight squats, and foam rolling. I felt pretty confident. Ahem… that lasted about 5 days. I also … Continue reading

on spinning your wheels

This week I went to a sweat-drenched, black light filled, high energy spin class with my teammates from work. {Mid-class, my mind went to a rather contemplative place to avoid listening to the burning sensation pulsing through my quads.} It occurred to me that, if meant negatively, “spinning your wheels“ is a stupid analogy. Think of the … Continue reading
