Hey guys! Been awhile. Like the rest of the world, I'm struggling to get through 2020 for a variety of reasons. One of the things I missed the most during quarantine in the spring was my gym. I got back into running, which was great, but I missed the variety of having classes and having strength training. Finding hand weights was as hard as … [Read more...]

It's Februaryand it's right around now that everyone starts slacking on their 2018 resolutions. WELL, DON'T! This year is all about YOU. If you start to slack on your goals, don't be afraid to pick it back up again. Everyone has their off days, trust me. But this year let's stay focused on a clear mind, body, and soul. I personally want to keep … [Read more...]

Nothing jazzes up a workout like a new workout outfit to make you feel good about yourself. I was definitely in a bit of a workout funk over this summer but I'm happy to say that now that I'm fully into a fall routine and am regularly at my local Orangetheory Fitness, I'm loving working out again. But having cute clothes always helps inspire me … [Read more...]

1. Establish your goal. Write down your fitness goal and stick to it! Whatever your goal may be (weight loss, toning, health, etc), make sure you remind yourself of it every day. This will encourage you to keep at it and not give up. 2. Make a plan. Schedule out your week with workouts and meal prep! This will make it easier and less of a … [Read more...]

Lately, I don't know which end is up and which end is down. Spring has been by far our busiest month both as a family and for me in my business. It's rare that I have any downtime and I'm looking forward to summer while trying to wade my way through the rest of the school year as best I can. One of the things that definitely gets sacrificed when … [Read more...]

It's like a little alarm clock went off in my body when I turned 40. Bing bing! She's 40! Time to start having stuff break! It's funny but it's also the truth! I remember hearing friends in their 40s complain about their achy-breaky bodies but I thought, That won't be me.... Ha! As I said, something clicked and my body isn't what it was in my … [Read more...]

A couple of weeks ago, my local gym had weekend-long coupons to my local Athleta and to use on Athleta.com. It was 3 days of 20% off with this personalized coupon so of course I took advantage as Athleta coupons are few and far between! Athleta still continues to my fav shop for workout gear. I'll sometimes piece up a piece or two at the Gap but … [Read more...]

No sugar coating here: running in the rain blows. It's not normally something I would do - on rainy days, if I'm due for a run, I hit my gym's indoor track. But last weekend my husband and I were registered to run the Hot Chocolate 15k in Philadelphia and after training for a race, no one wants to give up running it just because of a little … [Read more...]

Pretty sure that my family knew that my "HOLY SH*T" scream from the bathroom yesterday morning couldn't mean anything good as I stepped on the scale. I shouldn't have been surprised at what I saw though. The same way you lose weight - slowly and by a healthy calorie deficit- I gained weight slowly but eating (& drinking) more. If I'm … [Read more...]

Last weekend started out right with my running a local 4 milerwith several school friends on Friday night. I'm definitely not an evening runner but this run is a popular one in my town and it's always been on my Running Bucket List. A group of us planned torun it and then head into town for drinks afterwords. Fun times! I really wanted to get … [Read more...]
