WDW Half Training: Week 4

Coming off of week three, I was still feeling motivated. I kicked off week four with a Monday morning run, which is super rare for me. It is extremely hard for me to get up before 7am on a Monday, but based on my schedule for the week, a Monday run made the most sense…

5 Ways to Stick to a Workout Plan

We’ve all been there. We find a new workout to try, we do it for a bit, and then we drift in to our old habits. A few months back I wrote about how difficult it was for me to stick with a routine. Over the past few months I’ve been extremely good about staying…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Week 3 Recap

Another week has come and gone, and despite some challenges, I got through my training program. My first run was on Tuesday. I did not get up in the morning to go for a run, which I normally do so I had to force myself to go to the gym after work. It was a…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Weeks 1 & 2 Recap

I’ve made it through the first two weeks of my training program for the Walt Disney World Half Marathon. Last week I recaped my first run, but here’s how the rest of my training has gone to this point. The second run of week one was a bit harder than the first. The humidity was…

WDW Half…Here I Come

Today marked the first day of training for the Walt Disney World Half Marathon taking place in January. I kicked off the morning with a 30 minute run. Despite facing 95% humidity, I actually ran 2.51 miles, which resulted in a 12:06 average pace. For the first training run, I’ll call that a success. Since I…

Challenge Completed: 2,018 in 2018

This year my mom and I decide to challenge ourselves again and record 2,018 walking or running miles in 2018. We did the 2017 challenge last year and completed it in October, so this year we wanted to finished before then. I’m happy to say that as of last night, we hit 2,018 miles! I’m…

August Fitness Calendar

Earlier this year I had started working on a fitness calendar again to keep myself on track. I fell off the bandwagon a bit, but ever since I got my Apple Watch I’ve been so much better about getting my workout in. So now, here’s my workout plan for the upcoming month. Let’s rock this!

How the Apple Watch Changed my Fitness Habits

I heard many people rave about their Apple Watch and share how much they loved it. I was skeptical at first. I had a hard time convincing myself to spend over $300 on a watch.  And honestly, the main reason I wanted it was to play my music during my fitness classes at the gym….

Bellabeat Leaf Urban

I had been a long time Fitbit user, and I really enjoyed my Fitbit. However, recently mine Alta started to have battery issues and I was getting fed up with it. One of my friends had purchased the Leaf by Bellabeat. It almost looks like a piece of jewelry it’s so pretty. So when I…

HungryRoot Subscription Box

I’m obsessed with food subscription boxes. The less I have to go to the store the better! I recently came across the HungryRoot subscription box and decided to give it a try. HungryRoot sends 100% vegan, gluten-free food packed with nutrients, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats. All of their products include healthy fats and complex carbs…

Returning to Zumba Convention

Last week registration for Zumba Convention 2018 opened, and I eagerly signed up after missing it last year. Due to a hectic work schedule, I couldn’t find the time to escape and participate in four days of dance and workshops. This year, I plan to go back and I’m so excited. I rushed to sign…

March Calendar & February Recap

Who said resolutions had to start in January? I think mine is starting in March this year! It’s been a crazy couple of months to kick off 2018. Normally my travel for work calms down a bit at the beginning of the year, but this time, that hasn’t been the case and it has impacted…
