Why I Believe in Functional Fitness

Contrary to popular belief, I am not superwoman... I'm soooo far from it. I AM Katie Pink extraordinaire though... that works for me. It's taken me a long time to figure that out. My path has had many avenues and many dead ends, paths that were laid out for me, and paths I foraged own my… Continue reading Why I Believe in Functional Fitness

Work Hard. Be anything you want to be… #whatajoke #iamconfused #nowwhat

If we work, we will succeed, and be rewarded. WHAT A FUCKING JOKE! We grew up in a time that hard work meant you could do and achieve anything. So, we worked hard. That was the American way. You went to college, you worked in trade, you went in the service. You gave back. That's… Continue reading Work Hard. Be anything you want to be… #whatajoke #iamconfused #nowwhat

WTF is a Mom to do….

Mom “Firsts”
