Just Tina

I was born in a log cabin in the year of the Water Rabbit, 19 something-something and grew up learning to do all things with passion. That being said, I've worn all sorts of hats in my lifetime (my favorite being of the leather mask variety), but right now I'm the Queen of All to 3 and I do something in the medical field. I used to be a caterer, taekwondo instructor, and SAHM. My favorite things include swinging kettlebells, telling people how to be healthy, ignoring my own advice on how to be healthy, running, laughing, swinging, laughing, sarcasm, running, and eating. This is my blog, and like me, hopefully won't offend you.

My early birthday present.
Happy16th Birthday!!

Glad I took Friday as a rest day, because I didn’t sleep well and I woke up feeling nauseated and dehydrated. I didn’t know how this run was going to turn out. I’m okay with results.

This is my long slow run and that’s what it was going to be. I ran with the run/walk girls for the first half mile. I needed to start off slow.

11:18 - warm up with the girls
10:29 bye!
10:21 crossing a major road. Do you stop or jog in place? I stop.
10:12 the first major incline
10:21 here we go up
9:55 Lordy
10:18 here we go again
9:41 done!

Today is my youngest sons birthday. He’s 16! We celebrated over donuts and Kolaches this morning. He’s a good kid.

Tomorrow my KB training partners take me out for a birthday breakfast, AFTER we work out.



I’m either pregnant or have a tape worm, because I ate EVERYTHING today. A whole lot of different things that included a lot of carbs and TWIX and for dessert…..ORANGE CHICKEN!!!

I rolled my tired body to my workout corner and did a modified double KB clean, swing and press workout. Did a warmup of 200 swings using my 24, 18 & 16kgs.

I feel like a hero. Why? Because I feel good and I stuck with the plan. Tomorrow I get to REST!!!


And sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in.
