Warrior Dash Here I Come: My First Warrior Dash & Giveaway






Since I entered the world of running and races, I have always been drawn to obstacle courses. I have heard a ton of great things about Warrior Dash. While I've had friends and family complete this race, and heard many fantastic stories, I have yet to complete my first Warrior Dash. Well, I am so thrilled and excited to announce that this year that will all change!

To Feel Good Physically, You Have To Feel Good Mentally: NOW Essential Oils & Valentine's Giveaway




To me, weight loss is not just about physical changes, but also about mental changes. I firmly believe that to feel good physically, you have to feel good mentally. You must be willing to change mentally if you are going to effectively change yourself physically, and have those changes stick with you for a lifetime. Exercise makes me feel amazing both physically and mentally, and seeing those results are always an added bonus. However, when I'm in a slump and exercise isn't quite doing the trick, I like to turn to aromatherapy.

The Abominable Snow Race 2016 Recap





I got my yeti beast mode on at the inaugural Abominable Snow Race in Crystal Lake, IL this past Saturday. I had such a good time! This obstacle course race kicked off my 2016 season. 

After hubby and I arrived and parked, we waited around for the shuttle bus to take us to the race venue, which was located at Veteran Acres Park. It was a 3-5 minute bus ride to the location depending on traffic.
