Fitness First: Hot Yoga

Ever since my dear friend and freshman year roommate became a yoga instructor as one of her many side hustles, I’ve kept a scrappy and mildly inconsistent yoga practice up. As much of my fitness, I am somewhere in between a beginner and an intermediate. I can’t say that I have 1-2 years of consistent […]

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 […]

Fitness: Before & After Pics

I’m usually extremely hard on myself at the gym – to the point where it is borderline counterproductive. When I first started lifting as my main workout lover October/November 2011 I had no gym membership. I was staying over my boyfriend’s apartment frequently so used the weights in his building’s gym. As I was pretty […]

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 […]
