Sweets everywhere😓

Today was the first day back to work after 4 days off – so you can imagine that I was less than excited to get back to my routine. Despite cookies and holiday goodies still making their way around the hospital (I work for a very high paced specialty animal hospital that seems to moonlight…

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 that…

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,…

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 day…

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 up…

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 found…

24 Day Challege: Day 10

are you ready for the Max phase? Today was  the last day of the cleanse phase – and Mother’s Day – so before moving on I want to wish every mother a very happy day!! Ok, so today was the last day of the cleanse, I had a pretty uneventful food day, I had egg…

1 week down, 2.5 more to go!

Week one is done and I’m officially down 4lbs! I didn’t re-measure because I want to do the official halfway measurements on day 11 after the cleanse is over! I gotta tell you I see the biggest difference in my midsection – my legs and butt always take a long time to change, and my…

24 Day Challenge: Day 5

This morning I woke up before my alarm! Holy cow can you believe it?! Before my alarm!!   So of course I decided to get up and head to the gym for the morning class – but not my catalyst, probiotic, and spark! In class we did things like kettle bell swings, burpees, and a lot…

Spartan Workout Tour

Today I went to a free Spartan workout as part of the Spartan workout tour. I won’t lie, I was a bit nervous – but as I arrived I saw people of all different shapes and sizes and my nerves began to ease.  I didn’t know what to expect other than burpees… Lots of burpees……
