I'm embarrassed to say it, but until a very short time ago, I didn't even know what a blog was! This is very exciting! So a little about me.....I am a wife, a proud mother of three beautiful children, a Labor and Delivery nurse, a raw vegan turned Paleo lifestyle (that means meat, and lots of it!), an endurance runner turned CrossFit junkie, and a self-diagnosed OCD Type A personality. My spiritual side? I'm working on it. My ability to relax? Not so great. It has taken me almost 40 years to realize that in order to achieve one's goals, one has to first achieve balance in all areas of life. My five year goal is to compete in the CrossFit Games. For those of you unfamiliar with CrossFit, take a look at this video http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=crossfit breathe&aq=f. If I've learned anything in this life, it's that anything is possible. In order to accomplish this goal, I must simultaneously become amazing at all of the things that "I am". The purpose of this blog is to document my journey to The Games. How do I become a better wife, mother, spiritual being? How can I learn to relax? How can I improve my diet? How do I get stronger as an athlete? My hope is that you will take this journey with me and maybe even learn some things along the way.
