Muscles, Magic, and Messy Conversations: I’m here for all of it, and I’m betting you are, too. Get words from my salty, sassy soul straight to your inbox.
Things I would rather be doing than trying to have a perfect body, be a perfect mom, run a perfect business, and live a perfect life: Eating Tacos Laughing until my belly hurts (and maybe I even pee a little, don’t judge me) Pull-ups Teaching pull-ups Watching videos of kickass...Read more
At 5:30 this morning, I walked into my son’s room to turn off the light. Every Summer, Isaac jets off to Maryland to spend 6-8 weeks with his biological dad, and every single time it hits me hard–no matter how old he gets. I’m grateful that he gets this...Read more
I did something I never imagined I would do–I bought a longboard. I did it so that I could cruise around with my 9-year-old on his skateboard, helping him ease a bit more into his discomfort zone–while I, inevitably, follow suit. In the past few weeks we’ve had a...Read more
“I think Mondays hate me,” Isaac said, as he trudged into the kitchen. There was thick-cut bacon awaiting him, as well as a freshly toasted cinnamon raisin bagel; alas, even that wasn’t enough to get him pumped for Monday morning. I explained to him that a lot of people dread...Read more
It happened during a Strongman training session, in which there were very heavy sandbags involved. The task was, pick up a sandbag from the ground and carry it 100 feet, working up to your heaviest possible bag. I love this kind of stuff, and I loved the newness and the challenge of the task. And it...Read more
Plants are disposable, right? Like they last for a little bit, then die, and then you buy new ones to replace them? AM I DOING THIS RIGHT?! Well, yes and no. See, I’m doing it and killing them and learning and starting over again–and not giving up. So no, plants...Read more
Over the weekend I was relaxing at the pool with a Bloody Mary and a good book, and I overheard a group of girls talking about another girl. YES I was at the pool. It’s Southern California, what can I say? Some days in “Autumn” it’s 80 degrees and sunny,...Read more
Why? Well, it’s pretty simple actually: Kindness is free and it benefits EVERYONE. I truly believe that being kind as often as possible is one of the best ways we can contribute as humans on this planet. It fosters connection, breaks down barriers, and makes it much easier to...Read more
Labor Day Weekend in Cali was hot as a mofo. It appears that Summer is finally making an appearance, and no one in the beach cities has air conditioning…so, the ocean it is. We will brave the chilly Pacific waters because we are so damn hot we just...Read more
I’m nursing a photoshoot hangover this morning. Typically I would spend weeks getting ready for a shoot, and the prep is never fun (think SUPER restricted diet and 2x/day workouts). The day of the shoot itself is a hectic, exhausting flurry. Hair, makeup, more hair, more makeup, outfits strewn about. Sometimes you’re...Read more
