When I started going to the gym full time, I was completely hooked. I could go every day of the week without feeling like I needed a break. There was never any struggle; I would just get up and go. But over the years I started to realize that my body was changing, but my routine wasn’t. And sooner or later, it caught up to me… Continue reading
I’m sure we’ve all been there. That moment where you open your refrigerator or pantry door for the 10th time to stare at the shelves full of food. You sift through the drawers and shuffle things out of the way, but you can’t find anything you want. There’s tons of options, but nothing seems appealing. I go through this process far more often then I want to admit. I’m always looking for the 1 snack that I don’t have, which leads to a trip to the grocery store where I’m surround by unhealthy options. Continue reading
As the colder weather gets closer, it’s hard to find the motivation to exercise, let alone get to the gym in the first place. But since it’s about to be the holidays, exercise is vital to staying sane and fit. If you’ve been thinking about joining a gym, or integrating some at-home exercises, now is the time to start. When I first joined a gym, I was about 16 and I was playing a lot of school sports at the time, so I really just went to run on the treadmill. I usually brought a water bottle and some headphones, and that was it. I didn’t really know what I needed. Continue reading
Have you ever had one of those “Monday incidents” where it’s not even a Monday, but it certainly feels like one? So far this week, every day feels like a Monday. I’ve been struggling to get out of bed, and find the motivation to do what I have to do. A huge part of this is because I’ve started going to the gym in the morning again, and my body is a bit confused with the change of routine. Kyle can sleep through an alarm clock like it’s his job, (probably a habit formed when he had to sleep in a huge room with 60 other guys a.k.a. barracks) so I’m usually the one that has to wake us up.
I’m more of a morning person than most, but I do struggle sometimes to truly wake up. I move pretty slow at first, which can make the first 20 minutes of any morning workout feel like a complete waste. I don’t have much time to use before work, so as soon as I enter the gym I try to make the very most of it. One thing I really rely on in the morning is having the perfect playlist to keep me energized. Continue reading
With Christmas just around the corner (25 days!) I’m working with Fabletics this month to introduce some of their awesome workout gear! I’m pretty picky about what I workout in, because I got so tired of spending tons of money on things that either wore out, or only felt good to sleep in. Continue reading
As an avid runner, I try to get outdoors atleast 9 months out of the year. But with that, I have to deal with some of the harsher winter months that make running comfortably a challenge.
