Today has been a pretty standard day – woke up, walked the dogs, watered the Christmas tree 🎄, and ate breakfast. Breakfast wasn’t too standard though … I’m trying someone “new”!! Breakfast today was 1/2 cup egg whites, 1/4 cup shaved Brussels sprouts, 2tbsp shredded taco cheese, 1/2 grapefruit, and a packet of steviaContinue reading “Spending the day with my pups & new diet plans”

I’ve decided not to compete
Over the summer I wrote about my road to recovery with my ankle fracture, but the reality is that I haven’t given it much time to recover. I probably took a week off after my injury, and then went back to training – pretty much back to normal. I spent about a month in theContinue reading “I’ve decided not to compete”
Diet & workout plan
In an effort to be completely transparent, I want to share with you my plan for the next 7 weeks. My powerlifting comp is approaching a bit faster than I thought and my weight has been pretty stagnant – mostly because I have yet to really do the plan I set up. (Funny how thatContinue reading “Diet & workout plan”

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”

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 skipped the gym because I really wasn’t feeling well, my throat hurt and I just needed a day, but overall my meals went 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”
