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.

Every year is a different experience, and you’re never quite sure what’s going to happen when you get there. … Continue reading Too Tired to Take Names, But I Definitely Kicked Some Butt

That Darned Struggle Bus

For the last few weeks, I’ve been working through and with some low-level but constant anxiety and mild depression. It’s become background noise to the point where I’ve chosen to ignore it and decide my “official” emotion would be something else. However, those binged episodes of Stargate: Atlantis pretty much speak for themselves. One day … Continue reading That Darned Struggle Bus
