Craving the Sweat & Intensity

by Courtney on September 1, 2010

Ok, so for the past week or so, I’ve been going a little “stir crazy” a good, hot, sweaty workout. I had good intentions for while we were away (I packed my running sneakers + 3 days worth of workout gear!) but unfortunately that never happened. And then after injuring the foot, things were put […]


Thank You!

by Courtney on June 9, 2010

Before anything else, I’ve got to say thank you all so much for your kind words and encouragements from last night’s post.  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about posting such a personal story of mine, but the weight that has been lifted from my shoulders completely surpasses any amount of nerves […]


I'm Loving Mangoes

by Courtney on May 25, 2010

I am juuust about back to myself!   I’ve been taking it easy most of the day, and I gotta tell ya, it has been really nice to just relax.  And don’t worry, I haven’t taken one single minute of this relaxation for granted…I don’t get very much time to just “do nothing”, ya know? […]

This morning’s BodyPump class was so great!!  Before leaving, I quick grabbed 1/2 an Arnold Sandwich thin spread with a yummy smear of Maple PB.  YUM! The instructor decided to mix up some of the tracks, so we got to do some oldies but goodies.  Some of my faves were “Summer of ’69” for the […]


Dinner at the Drive-In

by Courtney on May 16, 2010

Last night’s trip to the drive-in was so fun!  I always love going…it’s got such a cool, old-school feel to it, ya know? When we got there, we were kinda bummed to see that the two movies we thought were playing together were actually on opposite screens.  Instead of “Date Night” showing after “Iron Man […]


Rain, Rain, Go Away

by Courtney on May 12, 2010

Good News!  We won our softball game last night AND I made it back with all 10 fingers and all 10 toes.   It was not a pretty sight, but they eventually all warmed back up and came back to their normal color soon after blasting the heat in my car!  Seriously mother nature, it’s […]

A Back on Track Morning

by Courtney on May 10, 2010

Gooooood Morning Everyone!  I don’t know about you, but after a weekend full of indulgent eats (cookies, belgian waffles, margaritas…) I was ready to get myself back on track this morning. I woke up bright and early for a date with my treadmill. I leafed through my stack of workout ideas that I pull from […]
