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…

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…

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

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…

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…

Discipline vs. Motivation

Discipline vs. Motivation

Has anyone ever told you that they need have found the motivation to get back in shape or maybe to go after that promotion at work? Lately I have been hearing a lot of people around me talk about motivation being the main factor they need to get that summer body or accomplish some goal they have in mind. And lately I have been realizing how wrong they are in what they actually need. See motivation is a short term…

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…
