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 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…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Weeks 8 & 9

These past two weeks have flown by, but they were not the best for running due to my travel schedule. During week seven I got two runs in on Tuesday and Wednesday before I left for Las Vegas. Tuesday I ran 2.36 miles at a 12:36 average pace. On Wednesday I ran 2.18 miles at…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Week 7 Recap

This week was about getting back on track after last week didn’t go so well. I started off the week with a yoga class that included a lot of hip opener stretches, which were painful bliss and needed. I’m not sure how opened they remained though because Tuesday I went out for me first run…

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: 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┬átaking 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…

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!

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…

February Calendar

I can’t believe it’s already February. I have no idea where the month of January went! This post is coming a little later than I would like mainly because I was in New York City last week for work. Nevertheless, here is my planned workout calendar for the month of February. I will say that…

2017 Fitness Accomplishments

This year has been a bit lacking in how much activity I’ve done, but there were still some great moments this year. 1. The Dark Side Challenge + the 5K: This year I did my biggest endurance challenge to date. I ran the Dark Side Challenge and 5K during the Star Wars race weekend at…
