Temptation Island

Last week was both good and challenging. I am settling into a nice pattern with my workouts that look like this: Crossfit Monday and Wednesday; Kickboxing Thursday; running or walking everyday but Tuesday, and on the weekends I aim for 2 miles each day. My calves are getting tighter, so I need to stretch them … Continue reading

5 Miles in

On January 1st it started–90 miles run or walked, in 90 days. On the first day I slept in and honestly avoided it for as long as I could. Then my husband and I went to Body Evolution and knocked it out. Then I finished it off with a 1,000m row. I felt good but … Continue reading

Year in Review

2014 was an interesting year for me, it taught me about my limits, tested my resolve, I learned a bunch of new recipes and I tried to transform my eating. I have to say I wasn’t prepared for the push-back I got from my body with all its injuries and that was tough for me. … Continue reading

Annual Check-Up

This week I went to my doctor for my annual check-up, and I was nervous because I know I will fall in around the same weight as last year, even after all the hard work I had done. I was disappointed with myself and wanted to have a frank talk with her about this and … Continue reading

Protein is your Friend!

What’s up everyone? I am still in the land of the living! Don’t fret. I know I don’t post as much, but know that I am still working hard. The whole eating every 2 hours or so and it being protein-based is going really well during the week. I pre-boil my eggs on Sunday and … Continue reading

Then after it I slowly saw myself going back to sugar {of course, you tricky vixen} and … Continue reading

Month of Madness

I have had an interesting month. Right before I went on vacation I had a, as the south like to call it, a come-to-Jesus talk with my chiropractor regarding all my injuries this year. It was a great chat and some truths needed to be communicated. I won’t go into too much detail, but I … Continue reading

The Honesty Post

Alright it’s time to get real, shake off the sugar-coating. I had a rough summer where I was injured and I went back to sugar. I gained some weight back. I didn’t workout much and lost some of my conditioning. I also got sad about it. But that sadness turned into resolve when I saw … Continue reading

Meal Plan

After taking stock of how I have been eating and feeling, I decided this week need an inspired meal plan. I want to eat in a way that helps me get through sticky moments with my tendency to eat chocolate in the afternoon. I believe that because I CrossFit three times a week, yoga now … Continue reading
