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

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

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

Girls Week!

Late posting this–last week was girls week at the box. I was able to go 2 days. My hip was feeling better {thanks hot yoga and stretching and chiro!!} but I could still fee it in my workouts. That being said I wasn’t going heavy in my weights and I wasn’t trying to win at … Continue reading

30 Minutes of Hell

I went to my box yesterday and the workout was something out of a nightmare–and the worst of it? I didn’t read it properly!! So when I thought I was finished I was halfway. Let’s discuss the anger that went through my body when I realized that!! It was not pretty. So what was this … Continue reading

Back? A little…

Still struggling with getting to the box lately. About four weeks ago when I was doing a regular body weight squat my hip had a sharp pain go through it, like a nerve or something was triggered. I have stretched, gone to the box a little less all in an effort to help my body … Continue reading
