Happy 2nd Birthday to Bandit

Bandit's 2nd Bday!

Today is my one of my kiddos birthday! And no I am not talking about an actual kid but one of my fur babies!! Bandit or Bandito, or Chuck like Michael sometimes likes to call him! We got him in the summer of 2017 which is so crazy to think about! Bandit to me represents this amazing season of love me and Michael have been in! We reunited the summer of 2017 and have not looked back since! And Bandit to me is a walking and breathing reminder of happiness! is it just me or do our little fur babies mean so much! Me and Michael don't have kiddos yet so Bandit means soo much!!
So today we are baking him a Peanut Butter Cake treat!!!

I am  sharing some throwbacks when he was a wittle pup 

a toddler

crazy how fast time flies
and a grown adult!
He is seriously soo big now and I forget how big he is talking grown dawg status at almost 100 pounds!

Anywho love you soo much Bandit

 and this gif is of him letting out Ellie! Whoever made this gif has completely captured my two furbabies perfectly!!

til next time,
Peace & Love,

And I say that abyss leads to......success!!!

that abyss leads to success!

Yall this quote! I seriously have been feeling this quote so deeply in my soul! This is my quote by the way! I was talking to one of my friends today about this new and EXCITING project that I will be announced soon!! So stay tuned for that announcement! And the conversation came up about FEAR and how we can be paralyzed by fear and not make any changes out of FEAR! But whats on the other side of FEAR?? What's on the other side of fear but a tensionless calm abyss! And what's so amazing when you take a leap and face your fears??
What's the result when you stand up tall and look at fear in its face and say LETS GO!!

I believe its SUCCESS

plain and simple.... SUCCESS!

If you have a goal in mind and you find yourself paralyzed with fear and you're afraid to take the challenge head on! DO IT!!
The amount of growth that you will experience from facing the challenge head on will be exponential! If you fail you will learn from it and if you succeed.....oh what if you succeed!!!!

For more inspiration, I highly recommend you check out this YouTube video by Will Smith

Yall this video talks about the moment after you take the leap!!! Its a MUST SEE!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you feel loved and encouraged to take a leap to achieve your dreams!!

til next time,
Peace & Love,

#TrainingThursday Fitness Update

#TrainingThursday Fitness Update

Today on the blog sharing an update with my fitness journey!
So last month I actually did a fun workout with my mom who is this amazing crazy speedster! And she is my MOM.... and we were working out on a track as we were working on speed intervals and I actually pulled a muscle!!!

It felt like a hamstring pull and it was sore the day prior only for me to pull it even more!(Back story: When I was in high school I did triple jump and ran hurdles and I used to get bad shinsplints!)
As my mom is a track coach and has been for years she told me to take it super easy and I couldn't run for a WHOLE week!

Which feels like forever in training! 

I ended up taking 10 days as it was still sore after 7 days! So if anyone who has been following me, they know I have been MIA for a bit!
That is why!
but now I am back better than ever!
Today I did another afternoon workout and I am going to talk about what my secret weapon has been!
the Runkeeper Go app by Asics has been an absolute
There is an actual women trainer on the app who talks you through and is sooo motivating!!!
This is an absolute gamechanger for anyone who is debating about training for a big race and not sure of how to do it!
You just pop in your headphones and she walks you thru the workout!

As I discussed in the previous post, I have partnered with Asics for this collab and as a  special discount for my followers, you can get 3 months free of Runkeeper Go using the code KARENB
Thank yall for following along!
I'll be posting next week some tips for stretching for any new runners!
til next time,
Peace & Love,
