January Challenge: 30 Day Arm Workout

This year I decided to focus on various challenges each month. These are different health and wellness challenges designed to keep me motivated and hopefully change my lifestyle for the better over time. For January, I decided to focus on my arms and use a 30 day challenge featured in Refinery29. So far so good!…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Week 17 Recap

Well January has already started off better than December. It’s been one week and I’ve already had three workouts! Unfortunately, none of those have been running. I planned on running Friday morning, but after the dog got me up in the middle of the night and I struggled to go back to sleep, I opted…

Run the Year: 2019

In 2017 my mom and I joined the Run the Edge challenge of 2,017 miles in 2017. We continued in 2018 and completed the challenge in August. At the end of 2018, we had completed 3099.86 miles! Naturally, we signed up again for the 2,019 miles in 2019. We’re hoping to complete the miles even…

Reflecting On 2018

My goal for 2018 was consistency. Looking back I would say I was pretty good about working out consistently up until these last two months. Between teaching Zumba and Pound, owning a stationary bike, and the motivation of my Apple Watch, I was much better about sticking with my fitness regiment. I’m glad I’m taking…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Weeks 15 & 16

Well the training did not get any better over these two weeks. I’ll be honest, I’m not concerned about finishing the race. I’ve done plenty of half marathons, some with less training that this. What I’m frustrated about is that I know I won’t be improving upon a time. And I know I have no…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Weeks 13 & 14

In November I was great about working out while I was traveling, but that has not been the case in December. In these past two weeks, I have only gotten two workouts in. Yikes! On December 3 I managed a nice cardio workout on the bike. After a long day at work, a quick 20…

Which Fitness Tracker is Right For You?

Christmas is coming! Do you have a fitness tracker on your list? It’s a great gift, especially if you or someone you know is gearing up for a healthier New Year. There are so many different fitness trackers out there so it can be overwhelming to pick just one. Luckily, we’ve done the hard part…

WDW Half Training: Week 12 Recap

This week did not go as planned either. I was better about getting some cardio and fitness in, but not the way I expected. I had planned to run Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, but that didn’t happen. On Tuesday I had to take my parents to the airport in the wee hours of the morning….

Feel Full for Hours

One of the reasons people struggle to lose weight is because they feel hungry at all hours of the day. A simple solution for that is to fill up at a meal so you don’t feel hungry an hour or so later. The process needs to be done carefully though. You don’t want to fill…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Weeks 10 & 11

November has not been a good month. I underestimated how jet-lagged I would be traveling back and forth to the West Coast. Surprisingly, the workouts I have been getting in are while I’m on the road instead of at home. During week 10 of training, I got one run in on Friday. I had ever…
