1. No Better Time Than Now

    I work in a medium sized company with many young professionals about the same age as myself. During a recent work happy hour, I began chatting with a coworker who got married about a month before I did. In no time, we had gone down the rabbit hole of wedding details… what the weather was like, how the food tasted, which family member drove us bananas, what went wrong, what went right… and the …Read More

  2. Was it worth it?

    For the last 5 months, you’ve read about my trials and tribulation of trying to get wedding-dress-ready for my big day. You’ve read about my ups and downs, my weeks of successful weight loss, followed by plateaus, injuries and weight gain. You’ve read about my endless hours at the gym and my struggles of being a foodie while trying to keep a diet in check. I swore on multiple occasions that …Read More

  3. 2 Days to go…

    I am officially 2 days away from my wedding. Shit is super real now. My dress alterations are complete, wedding bands are bought, family members are coming into town and my house is exploding with a mix of wedding day supplies and wedding presents. We even got our first card addressed to Mr. and Mrs. yesterday… it’s all a little surreal, but it’s exciting. Being this close to the wedding day…Read More

  4. Injuries Happen

    ` I don’t deal with injuries well. I quite frankly never have. I’ve never liked going to the doctor, taking unnecessary medications or having to slow down. The other side of this is the fact that I have been plagued with back problems my whole life. At 13 I had to quit gymnastics due to back pain... Not that I was any good at it, but I was devastated. I deal with injuries by ignoring or avoidi…Read More

  5. Momentum vs. Motivation

    June was a crazy month for me. I left my job of 3 years where I worked from home to go to a steady 9-5 corporate gig here in Denver. I traveled back to Boston for my bridal shower and bachelorette party which turned into a hectic but fun 6 days away. And truly the crunch of wedding planning has hit as well. I swear any minute Matt and I have together we are making some kind of decision about the w…Read More

  6. Progress Report: Mosquito Bites to A Cups

    A few weeks ago I was in Sara’s Friday morning  weightlifting class with just one other Titanium Fitness Client, Fran. Though I love big classes, I also love it when classes are small and I can connect with just one other person. Sara was running late, so Fran took the lead and starting getting us warmed up. Though I can’t quite remember how we got on the topic, we started discussing gym prog…Read More

  7. Shake it Off

    A couple weeks ago my future in-laws flew in from Boston to spend a long weekend with Matt and I here in Denver. I was pleasantly surprised when the first words out of my future-Mother-In-Law’s mouth to me were “Wow! Kristy you look great!” This was super encouraging. I’ve been working out 6-7 days a week, trying to keep my diet in check and it simply felt great to know that all this effor…Read More
