Welcome to Better Kate Than Never

Two years ago, I found myself on a journey toward an accidentally fit life as I worked my way through belt promotions at my Kempo Jiujitsu dojo.

Along the way, I discovered health and wellness is about more than crunches and push-ups. It’s about letting go of the things that no longer serve you. It’s about working toward goals that scare the crap out of you. It’s about acknowledging what came before even as you move forward to what can be.

In short, life is a journey, and this is mine. Welcome.

You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby

Once upon a time, I had another blog called Random Thoughts Strung Together. It was indeed very random, largely devoid of actual content, and generally unnoticed by the masses. In the year or so before I closed it down and started this new one, I found a voice and something I wanted to share. Those … Continue reading You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby
