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…

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 2

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…

Turning Late Twenties

Turning Late Twenties

  It is a bit hard to imagine that I am turning 28, especially since I just don’t feel 28! It is definitely an interesting time in my life and I am excited for so many changes coming my way. I am excited to finally know what makes my happy and investing the time and energy in “Me Time” to focus on my nutrition, diet and adventure travel. In the last year I have traveled more places that I could…

Yoga, Beer and Other Weekend Shenanigans

Yoga, Beer and Other Weekend Shenanigans

This weekend was the first time I ever tried yoga in public or in any type of group setting. Now I have always been hesitant of a group yoga practice but lets just say the beer made it a bit easier to shake the fear away. I have practiced yoga at home through YouTube channels and websites like DoYouYoga.com but have always refrained from any group practice. The yoga practice was at Wild Acre Brewery a new brewery in Fort…

Keeping The 2017 Push Alive

Keeping The 2017 Push Alive

With so many things happening in our daily lives, many of us fail to set aside that time every day for ourselves. It is almost looked down upon to be a bit selfish about your “Me” time that I think is vital to everyone. In a hope to combine my goals this year with my self happiness I have made my workout time my “Me” time. This means I am pretty selfish when it comes to making my morning weight…
