Review: iLoveKickboxing

Let me start out by saying, I’m a sucker for the ads serviced to me on Instagram. I click on them all the time, so when I saw a deal for three kickboxing classes for $9.99 AND a free pair of gloves, I had to click on it and sign up. iLoveKickboxing is a national…

Walt Disney World Half Marathon

Well I did it! It wasn’t pretty, but I did it. I know that I didn’t train well for this run, but I did not anticipate feeling as awful as I did. If you’ve been following my running journey for awhile, you’ll know that I don’t stop for character photos during the first three miles…

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…

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 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….

WDW Half Marathon Training: Weeks 5 & 6 Recap

These past two weeks have not been my best training weeks. I had a plan but it didn’t totally work out. I started out week five with a Monday morning run. If you read my previous training post, you’ll know I can’t stand Monday morning runs. However, based on the week that was how it…

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…

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…
