Catching Up

Catching Up

Hi there! Hope you are all as excited as I am that it is almost the weekend and summer is still going strong. I don’t know why but even when its over 100 degrees in Texas I love it! Summer has definitely been an interesting time for me and with so much travel I have fallen off the fitness game. It hasn’t been as horrible as I thought it would be but I am not clean eating and definitely splurging…

The Challenge Is Over

The Challenge Is Over

I still cant believe these 8 weeks are coming to an end and I feel like it was yesterday when I decided to start making changes for the better. It has been an interesting 8 weeks with its ups and downs but boy did I learn some great lessons. I have lost a total of around 15 pounds which is right on target with what I could have hoped for, especially with travelling and other things that came up along…

Spring Break 2017 – Part 4

Spring Break 2017 – Part 4

The final leg of our Spring Break 2017 tour took us down the Washington/Oregon Coast to Cannon Beach! We left Seattle early morning and started driving down to Cannon Beach via Interstate 5 until the 411 Highway so we could see Astoria and the Oregon Coast. We spent some of the first leg of the trip looking around Astoria and just taking in the sights. We stopped at Fort George Brewery since we had to keep the brewery lunches going…

Motivation – The Struggle Is Real

Motivation – The Struggle Is Real

I am currently 40 days into my 8 week challenge following Kris Gethin’s Hardcore Trainer and while I am deeply committed to finishing strong I have definitely faced my fair share of challenges. I have consistently been getting up at 4:30am to get my workout in before heading to work so I can be at my desk by 7am. This hasn’t been the easiest thing to do and trust me I have had plenty of nights saying why don’t I…

Spring Break 2017 – Part 3

The third part of the trip was our overnight adventure into Vancouver B.C. which was an amazing 24-36 hours spent in an awesome city! This was my first time venturing into Canada and I cannot wait to make a return trip to Vancouver and hopefully Toronto, Quebec, etc. I loved being able to just drive across the border into Canada and not have to worry about too many issues. We where able to take our rental car across with use…

Almost A Month In

Almost A Month In

OMG I still cannot believe that I am about to be in week 4 of my new weight lifting routine and I couldn’t be happier! I have been slowly realizing how much easier it has gotten to get up early in the morning and push through those workouts without issue. It is definitely shocking to me how much easier it has gotten to do simple things like getting up and going to the gym the past week and I am…

Spring Break 2017 – Part 2

The second part of our Pacific Northwest trip took us to Seattle and the greater part of Washington State. We spent a few days in Washington mainly near Seattle at one of our close family’s house. We spent the first day exploring the outskirts of Seattle and had a blast at the Snoqualmie Falls which where just breathtaking even though it was a bit foggy. We then headed into Seattle and spent most of the day exploring the area. Our…

Keep On The Grind

Keep On The Grind

So it is officially the end of week 2 of the Kris Gethin 8 Week Hardcore Trainer and I couldn’t be more excited to keep pushing. I have been consistently hitting the gym Monday to Friday for weights in the morning and daily cardio sessions in the afternoon at ZYN22 or the stairmaster at the gym.  I did have a rather intense upper back pain this week so decided to stay away from ZYN22 and just do the stairmaster to…

Spring Break 2017 – Part 1

This spring break we decided to venture to the Pacific Northwest and visit Oregon, Washington and Vancouver B.C Canada. Now this was the first time I had ever ventured into the Pacific Northwest and into Canada, since most of my time on the West coast has been spent in California. We decided to visit some family members in Portland and Seattle to venture into a place neither of us had really gone too. The first day was spent pretty much…

First Week In The Books

First Week In The Books

My first full week of following Kris Gethin’s 8 Week Hardcore Trainer is in the books and I couldn’t feel better! This week has been a complete change of pace to how my usual workouts have gone but I couldn’t be happier with how I am feeling and I know the results are coming. I followed Kris’s workout routine almost to the key but supplemented some exercises since my gym doesn’t have certain machines. I have also edited his cardio…
