A couple weeks ago, I talked about how I became certified in Perinatal Fitness, through the online AFAA workshop. Perinatal encompasses prenatal, birth, and postpartum.  I loved hearing all the information out there, and want to pass on some tips for working out while pregnant for those of you who are pregnant or thinking of being pregnant!

The Lunge Burner Workout


Good morning! Hope your Monday was a good one. Let’s get right to it today! Last week was a good week of workouts! Tuesday: Cardio Sculpt. We did a lot of cardio and I was dead after! It felt great. We did 4 circuits of 3 cardio moves for 45 seconds, repeated once, followed by a Tabata strength workout, before moving on. Let me know if you’d like me to type it up! I’d be happy to share. Wednesday: After {Read More}

Endless Apps and a Costco Purchase


Hey everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was a perfect mix of fun and relaxation. It was the busiest weekend I’ve had in a while, but that was needed since we were snowed in again! Let’s start on Friday! I had a girl’s night with my mom’s family. It was supposed to be last weekend, but was postponed due to the snow. It was a bit rushed after work getting ready, but I really enjoyed it! I didn’t snap too {Read More}

Let’s have some coffee and chat


Good morning everyone! It’s been a while since we’ve had a coffee date (or tea!), so pull up a chair and let’s get to it! If we were having coffee, I’d tell you… … somehow it’s the end of February.

I come home and all {Read More}

How to create a training plan for a half marathon


I mentioned last week, but I am completely honored to be apart of the Pittsburgh Marathon Bloggers. Over the next few months, I’ll be talking about a few different components key to any half marathon. I assume the topics will lead themselves to talk about marathons, too, but I have never run one of those, so I can’t speak from experience! Today I wanted to talk about training, specifically how to create a training plan for a half marathon (or {Read More}

Tone It All Full Body Workout


Since winter doesn’t appear to be going anywhere, I’m offering you a full body toning workout that you can complete in the comfort of your own home with just a set of dumbbells. Our temps were -8 last night, so today I had a delay. Actually, the students had a delay, but I still had to report at normal time. No worries- more time to get organized and ready for the day, aka reorganize the week, again, to fit everything {Read More}

Feeling a little stir crazy


You guys, I’m sitting at my kitchen table, staring at yet more snow outside. I can’t take much more! I have been off school since Thursday. Yep, no school Thursday, or Friday. Then add in a weekend without many plans, and I’ve basically been super cooped up and ready to go CRAZY! Not to mention, I didn’t think we’d have Thursday off, so I didn’t even bring work home on Wednesday! ha #TeacherFail Oops! I keep thinking spring might be coming, but {Read More}
