I spent 17 weeks training for a marathon that I did not run. A week ago I would have cried after typing that sentence. Today, I’m feeling better with my decision. Continue reading
This week I finished Livefit Trainer Phase 1. It also marks the most consistent I have ever been in my life with lifting weights. I love running, but it seems I love lifting even more! These four weeks have been challenging, but doable, and it has made me really excited to see what Phase 2 will bring. Here’s my wrap up of last week’s exercise: Continue reading
So…. Hi! I started recounting my macros back in March after gaining way too much weight during the fall and winter. I was counting macros and running, but my knees were killing me and I wasn’t quite seeing the results I was hoping for, so I decided that I was going to put running on hold and start focusing on my lifting again. Continue reading
I’ve mentioned before that when it comes to diet and exercise, I can only do one at the time. I managed to prove myself wrong last month when I took part in the Fit Girl’s Guide #28DayJumpstart. However, as I become more focused on running, the insatiable hunger has come back like a raging beast. Continue reading
Last week began the two week break between Fit Girls’s Guide challenges. My momentum was still going strong though, so I bought their cookbook, made my own meal plan, and kept up with my workouts. Here’s the daily break down:

Life has been crazy. Between the awesome exercising, Summer Reading quickly approaching, and a few other personal side projects I’m starting, I have not updated my blog in two weeks. No Workout Wrap Ups and No Reading Challenge Check Ins. 🙁 So, I’m going to try to double post and catch up on both today. Let’s start by catching up on the fitness…

Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a great week and a super Mother’s Day if you celebrate.
I’m still moving along with the Fit Girls Guide 28 Day Jump Start and it’s going great. I’m not losing inches quite as fast, but I feel better every day and see a difference in my energy levels, sleep, and confidence. All good things! Here’s my review of last week: Continue reading
Wow! It’s been a loooooong time since I did any kind of workout check in. That makes me sad. 🙁
Hurting my knee was rough. Not only was I in pain, but I lost all motivation to exercise. I also started eating all the foods. It’s my vicious cycle. I mentioned in my Hot Chocolate 15K wrap up that walking that race was a real eye opening experience for me. Seeing the pictures from after the race was also a slap in the face. I gained 20 pounds in several months, lost my confidence in my ability to do hard things, and felt all around terrible. I decided it was time to make a new commitment to myself and my health.
Welcome back to the
Wednesday Friday Workout Wrap Up. I have officially hit my holiday crazy and am finding it hard to keep up with my routine. That’s not to say I’m not having fun… because I am! Lots and lots of fun. But it’s hard to fit in workouts when you have Polar Express Train Ride dates with your two year old. The past 10 days has been a good reminder of why I do the #RWRunStreak. Even if there is no time to hit the gym for a lifting session, there is always time to run one mile… and that’s pretty much all I have been doing. Continue reading
