Happily married homeschooling mom of three hilarious kids. Passionate about ideas for living a full, happy life. Needs a clone and/or minions and/or more hours in the day so I can implement all of my brilliant ideas.
In September 2010, after several years of making slow and steady improvements to my health and fitness, I decided to give CrossFit a try. I was interested in CrossFit because of the emphasis on functional movements, and the varied workouts and great community of people at CrossFit Kennesaw kept me coming back. I soon learned that I love lifting, and also that I could improve in areas that were more difficult for me. One of the proudest (and loudest!) moments of my life was when I finally got a pull up!
My kids have always enjoyed coming to the gym with me and would often ask me questions about the workouts. My oldest two started to become more interested in learning some of the movements, and that’s when I seriously considered going for the L1 certification and CrossFit Kids certification, both of which I completed in the fall of 2012. Coaching kids through the movements and playing games with them helps keep CrossFit fresh and fun for me.

Because I think this is the essence of the choices we all face each day. (Hint: go for option #1!) When I find myself at a loss for what to do next, I pick something that will further my life just a little bit. That strategy WORKS.

Favorite motivational quote
“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it’s yours.”- Ayn Rand
