Hi friends! I'm super excited to be returning for year 2 to support the MS Society! I'll be biking 150 miles and going up 7K+ feet in elevation over two days. It's hard, fun, and amazing and also one of the most powerful things I've ever done. I'm training my little heart out each weekend and I'd love your support! Let's make a difference in the lives of the people and families with MS, together!

On not being obese
This summer, I hit a milestone. I just went from the 'obese' BMI category to the 'overweight' category for my height. I feel my chest tighten just thinking of the word obese . It's a scary whisper in my head and a heaviness on my heart. It was never how I t...

27, you were hard and wonderful at the same time. I feel like this year was emotional spandex with so much stretching and adjusting, but also so much settling in. Let's start the highlights: Stopped being obese. Because it was time. I made a decision to go ...
Stopped being obese. Because it was time. I made a decision to go for it and I did it. It was harder than I thought it would be, but the rewards have been amazing. I have so much more confidence in my discipline and determination than I ever thought possible. The amount of support I've received ...

The initial reaction is priceless! She seems to really like that ball.

Milestones, goals and using my fitness journey for good!
I've always loved cycling. It's one of my favorite things to do when I travel and it's my preferred way to get around on a nice afternoon. When I did my first long distance ride in college, I remember one of the first things I read was that the best way to ...

Leaning in to hard things
Tomorrow my sister is doing something very hard. She's starting school for the second time. For some this might be easy, but to do this she's had to make some very hard choices. She sold her house, quit her job and is ready to (somewhat literally) ride towa...

Hey friends! I'm at 60% of my fundraising goal for Bike MS! It would mean a lot of me if you supported the National MS Society and my ride from San Francisco to Napa! After this Saturday's training ride, I'll have cycled over 550 miles this summer in preparation for this ride! I never thought I could do this! It's been an awesome experience and I've learned so much about myself and cycling. Click the link and you can donate there. Google will match any donations that you make to my page and if you have company matching that's a triple match head explodes. Let's support the National MS Society together!  http://main.nationalmssociety.org/goto/bsaurus

The last 25
Wow. I'm getting so close. SO SO SO close. I've hit the point in my weight loss where I am starting to look a lot different. Sometimes I look in the mirror and do a double take because I just don't see who I normally expect to look back at me. It's wild. Ev...

The next 40
Exciting news on my front. I've finally hit -40lbs. The last 10 have been harder to lose than I thought and I feel like I was on this annoying cycle of losing/gaining/not getting anywhere. It. Is. So. Frustrating. So what am I going to do? Start counting ca...
Start counting calories: This pains me beyond belief, but it's something I need to do. I can be really stubborn and this is one thing I've been stubborn about. So, starting tomorrow, just as I track everything I burn, I'm going to be tracking everything I consume. It makes perfect sense and ...
