Have I mentioned I’m on a spending freeze? That I’m being fiscally responsible and financially smart?
Have I mentioned that it’s difficult? More difficult than crossing the Grand Canyon on a tight rope, or inspiring five-year- olds to eat kale chips, or getting a small dog to stop barking at squirrels?
Yesterday afternoon I hauled my aching bones to the orthopedist where I was x-rayed and examined, determining the fate of much more than my upper body injury.
A rotator cuff tear, bone spur (possibly related to the rotator cuff itself) and a month of physical therapy wasn’t nearly as painful to [...]
Whether or not you practice yoga or consider yourself a spiritual gangster, I’d encourage you to check out the clothing company with that eponymous name.
I’ve been wearing their tees, tanks and sweatshirts for a few years, and they are a staple to my day-to-day wardrobe. My stacked yoga tank is in [...]
I’ve just returned home from a four mile run with two fantastic friends, who might be responsible for reigniting my running mojo.
Despite the fact that their comfortable run pace was closer to a minute per mile faster than mine, I was happy panting a good few feet behind.
I waved [...]
Nothing more than a 56″ x 27″ piece of “rulu” (soft, stretchy, wicking fabric), the scarf is connected by a row [...]
It’s been a while since I last visited Lululemon. Being responsible et al.; saving my pennies for less fun things like post divorce salvation.
Still, I love a good trip through the North Raleigh store and I was greeted by a hug from Ms. Jami, new mama whom I hadn’t seen [...]
After months of waiting to wear my RunningSkirts(dot)com Sub-Zero skirt, the weather finally turned cold enough to pull it from its packaging.
I have raved about Running Skirts compression socks (here) since testing them out a year ago, but unsure about proper sizing in the company’s skirts made me hesitant [...]
It’s been ages since I’ve written a gear goodies post, so I figured that today is as good a day as any to share some of my recent favorites, both running and yoga related! Until I can run again I will cruise the Internet for more to add to the [...]
Back to school shoe shopping is not easy especially with fashion forward four-year olds.
Their father won’t be happy when he sees the Nordstrom bill, but his little ladies will enter “The Fours Room” next Tuesday with Twinkle Toes by Sketchers so blinding that I think I need shades.
It’s perfect [...]
Saturday morning began with my running group the WannaBeasts (10.5 minutes per mile) and eight sweaty miles through the greenway around Shelly Lake, behind Crabtree Valley Mall. There was ninety-eight percent humidity and while it felt like running through soup, it was fast and easy (even downright pleasant) thanks to the [...]
The hub for all I do, marthawills.com documents life from a working mom's point of view. When not mothering, I manage the social media needs of small businesses through Wills Media Group, LLC, and write a weekly column for Raleigh's News & Observer online entitled, Are We There Yet? Most recently, my passion for health and wellness led me to become involved as a consultant for Beautycounter, a company that's making a difference by educating about toxins in products, spreading the word via the web.
