Hello everyone.  Hope you enjoyed your Memorial Weekend.  That is a holiday that tends to be filled with camping trips, BBQ's and get togethers with friends and family and that often means some treats offered up that you are not always exposed to.  How did you do?  I know I didn't do as well as I had hoped but that is ok.  That is all a part of life.  Every day is a new day and it is about dusting ourselves off and starting strong again.
Right before I left for our camping trip I received a fun package from Ashley at  Fierce Forward.   Inside were 2 of her Limitless Bracelets.   She makes these bracelets that motivate and inspire.

She sent the Purpose Bracelet which stands for Your vision, your direction. What is your purpose, why are you doing it and what will it mean to you. Rehearse and know it; know it to the bone.   Love that!  As well as the Grounded one which  stands for your foundation.  Standing tall and fierce, you know not only where you are going but where you came from and who you are.  You may sway with the wind, but you are strongly rooted in the ground. 
I am suppose to offer one as a giveaway, but sorry I just can't part with one so you can just drool from a far....hehe, guess I better not be guess what....GIVEAWAY TIME  :)  One lucky reader will win  the Grounded bracelet and it is very cute (they both are).  Love the color of it.  The bracelets are handmade and have great quality.  Stretchy to fit your wrist and have a stainless steal charm.  You will love it.  Super easy to be eligible to win all you need to do it like Fierce Forward on FB and me and check out her website or etsy store and tell me (either by posting here or on my FB page) which bracelet is your favorite.  I think a couple more of my fav's are the Commitment one and the Growth one!   I know I would love to stack a bunch of them up my arm!!  Who wants to send some to me....hehe :)
I will randomly select a winner this Saturday, June 1st.  Good luck!



New round of bootcamp starting soon and I have space in both groups yet at this time.
M/W/F 5:15 am - outdoor, rain or shine.
Tue/Thur 6am - indoor (with the occasional bit of outside work by my studio)
Both groups run 8 weeks.   No class on Memorial Day or the First week of July.  Those classes will be added onto the end, to total 8 weeks worth of classes.
Contact me for more information or to confirm a spot.


You know how you so often want to try out a new food product so you buy a big box/bag, only to be disappointed and find you have wasted your money because you don't like it?  Why not try smaller portion sized ones so you can see if they are worth buying?  Well that is a grand idea isn't it :)  So with that said, I wanted to share with you an awesome new service I found.  It is  I have to be G-free due to an allergy so I am always looking for yummy eats and new recipes and I was excited to try this out.  Each month,  they send you a surprise box of tasty, gluten free foods and recipes right to your door.  You can sign up for one month for $25, for 3 months for $23 a month or for 6 months for $19 a month.  Those prices all include shipping.  You can sign up and just wait for your present to arrive at the door.  Dan at Gfreely was kind enough to send me over a box, when it arrived I was so excited to open it up and see what goodies I had to try out.  Mine came with the following:

- Protein pretzel sticks (cinnamon toast flavor).  I was excited to see pretzels with protein and 12 grams in a little bag, that is pretty good!  4 grams of fiber and 120 calories and they were pretty tasty.  I would get these again.
-Popcorners (kettle flavor).  Oh my, these were so yummy! (other flavors listed are- butter, sea salt, white cheddar, cheesy jalapeno and caramel).  The bag had 140 calories (not bad) and 2 grams of protein.  
- Sheffa Zesty snack mix; crispy chickpea noodles, roasted corn, and toasted seeds.  These were pretty tasty too and i like that the only things added were spices and sea salt.
- Super Seedz in tomato italiano.  Oh my!  I am in love!  These were sooo good.  Gourmet shelled pumpkin seedz.  I would totally buy these!  Healthy little snack.
- They also sent Sea Salt flavor in the same super seedz and if I had these first I would have thought they were so good too but since i had the other ones to compare them to they were not nearly as tasty.  They were still good those but the tomato italiano ones stole my heart :)
- Bumble bar - organic energy bar.  I was excited to try it, thought it would taste like honey but i wasn't too impressed, it didn't taste like much at all but hey they can't all be winners right.
- Justin's all natural peanut butter bar.  Is there really any better combo on earth then chocolate and peanut butter?  I think not!  I have heard a lot about Justin's so I was anxious to try.  Let the drooling start as I unwrap the package.  Although it was delicious I don't know if I would go as far to call it healthy.  It is better then a Snickers or Reese's due to it's healthier list of ingredients but this still should be looked at as a treat...a treat I wish I could have every day mind you hehe
-Gluten Free pizza kit - although I am very excited to this I have not had a chance to yet.  It looks wonderful though.  The kit includes: sauce, crust mix and cooking paper.  I love homemade pizza and we enjoy making it together as a family so I can't wait to try this out!
So bottom line, if you love to sample out tasty snacks, this is a great way for you to give lots of different ones a try.  I bet you will love it!   Sign up to receive your box here
