Starting fresh with training

Pittsburgh-EQT-10-Mile-Race-Training-Plan-for-beginners-and-intermediate-levels_thumb.jpg

Starting fresh usually means you are embarking on something new. Maybe it’s a new journey, maybe a new place to live, or maybe a new job. It could be a fitness routine, or it could be getting yourself on back on track with eating. I love a fresh start. It doesn’t have to be a new month, new year, or anything. Every day is a fresh start. A chance to chase your goals and dreams. For me, today begins a {Read More}

Happy Sunday, everyone! If you are in the U.S., I hope you enjoy knowing there is an extra day off tomorrow! ***** If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that after some tough months, along with a week long hospital stay, I was finally diagnosed with Lymphocytic Colitis. I was lucky to find a Digestive Disorders Clinic at a nearby hospital, where I ultimately found out my diagnosis, as well as what I need to do {Read More}

Putting down my phone and picking up a book

The-One-and-Only.jpg

Good morning! We made it to Friday. I actually worked this week (more on that below) so I’m more than ready for the weekend! 1. Schools began Monday, which pretty much makes me think summer is ending. However, summer weather only arrived this week, making working in non air-conditioned buildings unbearably hot, and stinky! ha I have to say I’m not used to getting up and moving so fast yet, but I’ll get there. I was hoping to get up {Read More}

When I started picking up my teaching classes, and adding in a lot more Plyometrics, my legs weren’t really having it. My legs felt like lead during my runs, and my shin splints returned. What began in high school during track have never left me, making jumping hurt a bit more on the days following. Between shin splints, teaching, and running, my legs are toast by the end of the week (I secretly love it; I’m a weirdo.) It all {Read More}

What do I really eat in a day

Fish-Tacos.jpg

I make it a point to be real and tell you I believe in eating in moderation. I believe you can eat what you want and be okay with it. I don’t think food should be off limits. But then I got thinking, and realized that I don’t share my food choices too often, or even a complete day of food with you all. When I first started this blog, I had full intentions to share my food, but I {Read More}

10-15-20 Circuit {New Workout!}

10-15-20-Circuit_thumb.jpg

Hi guys. So glad you liked seeing pictures from our weekend and minimal wording! It was fun to keep it to the important key words. I spent a lot of time yesterday dealing with cars: specifically getting new tires and an alignment, obviously not at the same place. Whew, talk about a long and boring time (not to mention an expensive day)! ha The rest of the day made up for it, though. I taught a class with awesome people, {Read More}
