40 Minute Treadmill Run

You know those workouts you think of and in your head they don’t sound too bad? That was this one. I originally had it about 46 minutes, and half way through I was struggling! I haven’t pushed myself in way too long, so I kept going, but cut it down to 40 minutes. You will be sweating, out of breath, and feel amazing when you’re done! Feel free to take this to the bike, elliptical, or even take it down {Read More}

A 1st Birthday Party!

Hi everyone! How are you today? Ready for another week? One week closer to summer and being able to stay outside without freezing, which happened to be what we did this weekend. Friday: After work, our friends Emily and Mike came over for dinner. I didn’t snap pictures, but Annabelle loved hanging out with them, and was in a great mood! We enjoyed some Cheese Steaks, French fries, and a salad. After Annabelle went to bed, we relaxed on the {Read More}

Back to Running Workout

Hey guys. I’m back with a workout today! Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been working out when I feel like it, and that’s it. If the urge was there, or I felt like I needed it for my sanity, I worked out. If I didn’t want to do it, I didn’t push myself. I’ve run a few times, done a few upper body workouts and gone on some walks. This past Friday, though, I found myself with some extra {Read More}

Low Risk, Moderate Risk, High Risk, and HIIT Workout

If the thought of working with others in the fitness industry, whether it be a personal trainer, or a group fitness instructor, has ever crossed your mind, I have some pretty important information to share. When you are working with anyone to improve their fitness, and pushing them to lift more, run further, go faster, you need to know a bit of background about them. In most cases, they don’t have any medical needs that are serious, but sometimes they {Read More}

10 Reasons to Love the Treadmill

Oh treadmill, you get such a bad rap. Many people call you the “dreadmill” and I know I was one of them. But you were there for me during the Polar Vortex when I couldn’t think about going outside, and now, I must count the ways I love you.. It is always the same temperature when I am running. I know what I can wear and not sweat to death, or know I can run without people judging my outfits {Read More}

Being at a Comfortable Level

I headed to the Doctor yesterday for a follow up from my toe surgery in December. After looking at my slightly swollen toe, he asked how it was, and what I’ve been able to do on it. I told him I’ve been running—much less than usual but still running- and that I ran 6 miles yesterday morning. He promptly told me he was proud of me and that it was great I was already back to running when my surgery {Read More}

The Polar Vortex of 2014 and a Workout to Warm You Up

Wow is it cold outside! We are experiencing the coldest temperatures in years, as most of you all are I assume, too! The first school that I sub for called it off today at 12:00 yesterday, and the rest of the districts around closed shortly after. Though I would rather be working right now to make money, I’m all about staying inside and snuggling with my Benny.   I just wish Aaron was home and didn’t have to make the {Read More}
