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 […]

Fitness: Overdoing it

Today was not a good day for fitness. As per a recent post stated, I feel like anxiety in other parts of my life and the sense of 1) not having control over anything else and 2) not being “successful” anywhere else makes me go bonkers over my workouts. This is no bueno. For a […]

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 […]

FIghting with myself

I haven’t posted in a while. Holidays are hard for me. The copious time spent with family, away from routine; the food, all the deliciousness I want to ingest; the cheer that is required of me, that I simply cannot muster at times. Due to my uncertain situation right now, with the lack of employment […]

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 […]

First: Race recap (and pictures of myself on the blog)

I’m happy to report that running the Marine Corps Marathon 10K did not end my short and slow running career! I was proud of my results, despite having battled nagging pains and an inconsistent training schedule. Here are my results!

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 […]
