Intermittent fasting: another diet trend?
Recently a fellow fitness professional told me he was toying with the idea of intermittent fasting. He began explaining that it had to do with insulin sensitivity and some of the research was pretty astounding – he said that if done right one can lose fat and gain muscle .. Wait for it… At theContinue reading “Intermittent fasting: another diet trend?”
Getting stronger::New ink
I literally learn something new every single day that I go to crossFit. The cardio work is my least favorite but mostly because it needs the most work. I am starting to become a stronger rower, but I still find myself going out too hard to start and tapering off at the end. I do,Continue reading “Getting stronger::New ink”
Update: I’ve turned into one of THOSE people
What an interesting title since I haven’t written in awhile. Sorry, life has been a bit hectic around here – I just seem to never stop working lately! With our focus on building our AdvoCare business and my schedule at my full-time vet tech job, life has been a bit crazy!

I am a Spartan! Aroo!
Today I completed my very first Spartan sprint in Tuxedo, NY. My husband had to work so I went alone and ran it alone… Well, alone in the sense that I didn’t know anyone personally. I picked up my bib number and headed to the start line but of course I had to snap someContinue reading “I am a Spartan! Aroo!”
24 Day Challenge: Day 18/19 & Pup update!
Day 18 started as a pretty standard day.. with less than 7 days left of the challenge, I’m feeling pretty good!

I found myself slipping a bit around mid dayContinue reading “24 Day Challenge: Day 18/19 & Pup update!”
24 Day Challenge: Day 14 & 15
Yesterday I woke up and headed to the gym for Body Pump. After that I headed home to cook chicken and then headed into work. Work was super busy, as it always is, and a bit stressful but I kept on task with my meals and supplements. After work I headed home to pack upContinue reading “24 Day Challenge: Day 14 & 15”
24 Day Challenge: Day 13
Today I woke up with no intention of going to the gym. I decided since I did a double yesterday and experienced crossfit for the first time I’d take a break from my morning routine and wash some dishes. I also thought maybe I could go to crossfit after work. During work today I foundContinue reading “24 Day Challenge: Day 13 “
24 Day Challenge: Day 12 (plus crossfit)
So last night I contacted a local crossfit box to see how I could check it out and pretty quickly I was invited to come to a class tonight at 8pm. Of course I said yes! So I woke up this morning had my spark, catalyst and thermoplus and then headed to the gym –Continue reading “24 Day Challenge: Day 12 (plus crossfit)”
24 Day Challenge: Day 11
Some days you may find that you’re more hungry than other days. All things considered (with my history of binge eating disorder) the fact that i’ve been pretty hunger-free the last 10 days or so is pretty impressive. I haven’t binged, and I even said NO to froyo, but today was the first day ofContinue reading “24 Day Challenge: Day 11”
