Fitness: Goals & Things I’m Slacking On

I think I’ve spent a lot of the past months eating and complaining about things I see other people do at the gym and not really focus on discussing my goals and what I’ve been doing right or wrong. Oops. It’s been a rough quarter year. Let’s start with positive goals and encouragement and chat about my goals […]

Fitness: Mistakes

Disclaimer: I am not a professional, merely a girl who loves researching fitness and is always at the gym. This is mostly from personal experience and shit people do at the gym. Obviously people who blog or attempt to blog (in my case) about fitness are more knowledgeable than your average doing-curls-in-the-squat-rack bro. Onto the list! Mistake […]

First: 2013 Post – Things I wish I could see more of

First off, Happy New Year’s! I hope 2013 brings hope, happiness, success, and everything in between. I started my year off with a gym session with my boyfriend (who had the day off) yesterday. With our schedules, we only work out together on Sundays – and by work out together I mean literally go to […]

Fitness: Random Things

I’m so excited about these things and I’ve shared with my boyfriend who thinks it’s adorable I get excited about pushups but also is like “honestly, this girl has to make me watch every thing she does at the gym?????”, so I need to share somewhere else. 1) So I literally always sign up for […]

The Other “F” Word: Failure

This post is more a rambling for my own sanity. I’ve hit some testing times in my life and while it’s irrelevant for the purposes of this blog, nobody’s life is all cookies and rainbows all the time, and this has kind of dampened my spirit for quite a bit now. I’m not quite a […]

Fitness: Equipment faves (and newbies)

I’m a pretty simple person when it comes to fitness gear – I have a pile of soft and worn free t-shirts from my high school and college days, and sadly (or disgustingly) very few bottoms to go with it. A few pairs of booty shorts that I now prefer over baggier athletic shorts, one pair […]

Feeling tired of my workout routine

I went to a group fitness class (that was not yoga) for the first time in a few years, and was unsure how I felt about it. I went after doing my own weights workout, since I didn’t trust the class to accomplish my goals. I usually lift full-body heavy weights 5×5 – so the […]

Fave Big Butt, Booty Boosting Moves

My boyfriend and I have a nickname for this workout – the big butt routine. Ever since he introduced me to these lifts, I have seen tremendous changes in my lower body, to the point where a new wardrobe might be a necessity… Note: this may not be everyone’s goal, but it is definitely the […]

Focus on 10K training!

An old friend and I are running the Marine Corps Marathon 10K on October 28th to join in the festivities, as the course finishes in parallel with the marathon course. This is the longest distance I have ‘raced’, and only my third road race – the first being a 5K last November, followed with an […]
