Guest Post: My Journey to Healthy, Happy Balance by Holistically Fed

Guest Post: My Journey to Healthy, Happy Balance by Holistically Fed

This week we are joined by Erin, the talented and inspiring blogger who writes over at Holistically Fed. Her health journey reminds me of how connected so many of us are by where we came from. Many of us grew up as young children with distorted images of health and beauty, and now that we’ve grown up we have the choice to change those misconceptions for the better....

What 1 Year of Training Strongman Looks Like plus Carb Cycling and Stacy’s Mocha Protein Smoothie Recipe

What 1 Year of Training Strongman Looks Like plus Carb Cycling and Stacy’s Mocha Protein Smoothie Recipe

This time a year ago I declared I wanted to be strong. And I’ve certainly accomplished that goal! In fact, in less than one year I’ve trained hard enough to believe I may be able to earn a ticket to Nationals by competing in two upcoming contests this summer, where I’ll have a chance if I place top 3 in either contest. I’ve surpassed all my goals,...
Memorial Day Recap

Memorial Day Recap

Although we spent some of our weekend working on Real Life Paleo, we managed to ignore it (procrastinate) for most of the weekend and spend some much needed time together as a family, working out, playing, eating, and living in the moment. Want all the details? Keep reading! CrossFit Mid Atlantic Regional Although I have changed my focus at the gym to specific...
I Am Strong

I Am Strong

Warning: gratuitous fitness photos, videos and soap box rants ahead. It all started with a declaration. I want to be strong. ♥ On July 22, 2013 – 7 months ago – I made a commitment to myself that I would stop worrying about losing weight and start worrying about gaining strength.  I realized that my body wasn’t made for running, it was made for lifting....

100 Days of Training Strong(wo)Man

Wow, time flies when you’re having fun! I can’t believe it’s been 100 days since I declared I wanted to be strong and then subsequently wrote the 45 day update. So, let’s cut to the chase: I’m stronger. First, I have something I want everyone to hear: If you, too, want to start crossfit but worry you’re overweight or not an athlete...
I want to be strong

I want to be strong

In January of 2013 I started cross-fitting at NOVA Strength and Conditioning. I documented some of the things I learned those first few weeks in a post entitled, A Fat Girl’s Confession on Starting CrossFit. But despite the popularity of that post and my frequent sharing of CrossFit photos on Instagram and Facebook, I haven’t written much about my experience....
CrossFit Gear Giveaway!

CrossFit Gear Giveaway!

Over the past nearly four months, Stacy has been documenting, mostly through photos, our adventures with CrossFit over at the local NOVA CrossFit. Despite all the sore evenings and Facebook comments about our extremely poor form, we’ve completely fallen in love. While we continue to share this love in all our social media outlets, we decided that we’d like to...
What Are We Up To?

What Are We Up To?

We looked around our own blog recently and realized that we were not writing for it ourselves very often. One of the promises we made to ourselves and to our readers was that we would always be involved in it and be the main contributors. It is unfortunate that writing Beyond Bacon has taken away from our blogging time. But, until we send the book off to print and get...
A Fat Girl’s Confession on Starting Crossfit

A Fat Girl’s Confession on Starting Crossfit

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you – no doubt – have seen my CrossFit photos lately. I want to take this opportunity to sincerely, genuinely apologize for inundating you with photos of me doing stuff that probably irritates, annoys, confuses or befuddles most of you (which I’m also about to do in this post). Please understand, when...

CrossFit Capital Games of 2012

One of the many perks of running this blog is meeting lots of interesting people. Some of them are totally awesome, but normal people with interesting tales to tell (some of those people can be found telling their amazing stories here!). Two of the coolest people we’ve met are the married owners of the mega awesome and DC area’s largest MMA and Crossfit...
