If you’ve been following me long enough, you know a few facts about me:

  3. I have IBS and am allergic to gluten and dairy.

  4. I have two beautiful children and I am in my 40’s.

  5. The area of my body that I struggle with the most <both physically and mentally> is my stomach.

Why I ride.

Fitness is a choice. In my 20’s I worked out to be skinny. In my 30’s I did it to to get more toned and work off stubborn baby weight. In my 40’s I do it to find joy. Fitness sparks joy for me. It has become much more of a mental game then a scale game for me. Let me be clear though, I am no different than any other woman. I work out to look good and fit in my clothes, too. Every woman does. I also work out so that I can indulge. It’s a crazy cycle of balance but more than anything I do it for my own sanity.

It’s a dark story with a true happy ending.

Just as it’s important to know what we are consuming or putting into our bodies. Medical technology has advanced so much that surgery is no longer a requirement which makes life quite simpler and more affordable.

Devil in the White City.

Since we are at the “in-between” stage, I’m gravitating towards ethereal dresses and smart layering. This dress was a complete style steal. I cannot wait to wear it all summer long with a pair of neutral sandals…glass of rosé in hand, natch. It just floats behind you and there is a drop waist in the back under your bum which is all sorts of magic. I really love it. Just need a spray tan and we’re good to go!
