If I've learned one things it's that life is hard. It's not smooth sailing. There are hard days and less hard days. It's not as easy as I always imagined it would be. But one thing I know is that I'll muddle through. It may be sloppy, but I'll get there. Because I can. I will. I can do hard things.

I've been thinking about this for awhile now. Cancer sucks. I am sure that every single one of you who are reading this right now have been affected by cancer in one way or another. It is such an awful disease, sneaks up on the seemingly healthiest of victims, and spreads quickly. 

Sitting here, I can think of several people who have been hit by cancer. My mom (...

So I can't let yesterday come and go and not share with you how special it was. Yesterday Greg and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary. It really is hard to believe at times that we've been together that long. There are so many memories that seem just like yesterday but then when I think about the time we've been together there are simply soooo many exper...

Well hello there!

That was the opening line from my very first blog entry around a year ago. 

Boy so much has happened since then, hasn't it? 

Can you believe we are already creeping up on the Fall and Winter months? Fall is right around the corner (when does it turn Fall by the way?), and before we know it fresh snow will be everywhere - at least here in Utah. An...

In the last 9 months She Lifts Gear has grown through trial and error, with some setbacks, but successfully and it's all because of you, our She Lifters, who support the mission and the cause!

So earlier today I shared some pictures from a procedure I had done at Trilogy Med Spa in Midvale - one of the BEST decisions I've made. It’s something I’ve known I wanted to do for a long time but haven’t had the nerve. Until this week. At the recommendation and encouragement of some friends. And of course me. I couldn't be happier with the results so far, lov...

Too much kindness never hurt anyone. As women we have so many opportunities to reach out and lift another up. There are already too many who don't and feel they are better than the rest of us. Don't be that person.

There’s not a day goes by that I’m not asked about how to become an ambassador or athlete for She Lifts Gear. Some days I’ll maybe get one inquiry, but then there are others when I’ll get several. I wanted to take a moment and update everyone where I’m at with regard to starting an ambassador and athlete program as well as shed some light on my personal feeling...

This post comes from genuine concern. I have worked with a few different trainers over the last 9 years, but the last 3 years I have been totally 100% committed to Shane Heugly. He is my coach. Why? He knows his stuff. He's experienced. He has a portfolio of success stories to be commended for, and he's so passionate about this sport. And Shane is just one of m...

"Fitness has become more than just a lifestyle to me. When I think about my WHY and how this journey of healthy living has blessed me, I am routinely humbled. I am a firm believer in "everything happens for a reason and that things occur in His time".  My mom has taught me from a young age to be strong, a friend, a giver, and help others.  It's some of her best...
