Friday Fitness- Genuine Health Superfood


After last Friday’s vent session about the stubborn baby weight, I worked hard to make my workouts and healthy eating a priority this week. I even went for a run one day after the baby fell asleep at 7 p.m. For someone who goes to bed at 9pm, working out at 7pm is super late. But I was determined and…

Friday Fitness- Stubborn Baby Weight


I miss those first six weeks after Tynan was born. Yes, I was in pain from my C-section and I was exhausted from no sleep and figuring out breastfeeding, but I didn’t give two thoughts to my weight during that time. It was magical. My mom stuffed me with treats every day saying I needed the calories for nursing and…

Friday Fitness- Testing JĀSÖN Natural Deodorant


Happy Friday! It’s the last Friday of summer and the kids go back to school next week. How is that possible? WHERE did this summer go?! I didn’t quite get in all the adventures I wanted, but I’m still happy with how life went and where it’s going. I’m also happy with how I’m slowly but surely prioritizing my workouts…

August BuffBoxx- Stuffed!


You know the box is good when it’s so stuffed that it’s open a crack. I was like a little kid when I noticed the stuffed BuffBoxx this week and couldn’t wait to go home and see what was inside! Monster Hydro Tropic Thunder- I haven’t tried this yet. There is sugar in it and I’m trying not to drink…

Friday Fitness- Classes for the Win!


It’s been a good week workout-wise. I was finally able to get in and take some classes which I really love because it pushes me harder than I workout on my own. Friday- Nothing After Thursday’s personal training session where I did a total of 240 squats I could barely walk. I had the best intentions to hit spin &…

2018 Raymond Triathlon Recap


It’s been almost two weeks since the Raymond Triathlon, it’s about time I finally sat down and finished the recap! If you read recaps of previous triathlons like the 2012 Splash Pedal Gasp, 2012 Magrath Triathlon, and the 2014 Magrath Triathlon, you know that I have this terrible habit of signing up for a tri and then barely training. I…

Friday Fitness- Joining Gold’s Gym


My title says it all. Last week I finally had enough of the heat keeping me indoors and the lack of at home workouts. They have child care so I can go during the day with TyTy and he’s cared for. I’m looking forward to all the classes too.  I like being in a class environment because it pushes me…

Perfection! Here’s all what came in this months BuffBoxx. Adept Nutrition BCAA’s Razorwire Energy Pills Lifeline Muscle Massage Kit MRM Veggie Protein Powder MRM Digest-All…

Friday Fitness- Better Than I Thought


This weekly recap is very easy. I did not work out all week with the exception of BodyCombat at Golds with my mom on Thursday. I’m not going to give an excuse, I’ve been lazy and spending my time with my family doing things besides workouts. That said, I am pretty happy with how I did in BodyCombat. If you…

Friday Fitness- Postpartum Muscle Weakness?


This was not the best week but it was a fun week! Friday- Easy stroller walk 1.63 miles Our daily outing is a walk to the post office a half mile away and back. On some days I wander around the streets to add more walking time on. Saturday- Nothing I purposefully did nothing to save up my legs for…

Fitgal Activewear Giveaway


***Giveaway is now closed*** One of the things I love about blogging is the chance to work with Canadian companies and promote their products and services. When Fitgal approached me wanting to do a giveaway with my readers I jumped at the chance. What surprised me most was how affordable this line of activewear is! Typically, anything Canadian is more…

June BuffBoxx- Sweet Potato Chips are da Bomb!


Thank goodness for my Buffboxx! Being home all day on unpaid maternity leave can get a little dull and we don’t have the budget for shopping. My BuffBoxx is my little present that brightens each month. During the last two months, I’ve had chips but the sweet potato chips this month were so yummy!! So let’s look at what came…

Friday Fitness- Fit & Chic


Can I please have a mulligan on this week? You guys- how do you get back into that groove where if you miss a workout you feel awful and crave a sweat session? Because those 6 weeks of doctor ordered rest has gotten me comfortable with inactivity. Basically, I have nothing to share this week because I didn’t make time…

Telemedicine Can Help Beat Those Workout Excuses


I am trying to lose those last 15 pounds from my pregnancy and is it ever hard! As someone who has been into fitness and working out for more than half my life, I am blown away at how hard it can be to lose weight. The other day as I struggled on a run I thought about how challenging…

Friday Fitness- Wellness Tips


It’s Friday and we have an action packed weekend! A barn wedding party (I bought TyTy an adorable Wrangler onsie) and then we’re heading to the mountains for a night of camping. Baby’s first camping trip! We’ll be staying in our parents camper as I’m not brave enough to tent it with a baby just yet. Any tips for camping…

Friday Fitness- A Little Goes A Long Way


This starting from the bottom has been an eye opener! Who would have thought that a 15 minute workout would kill me so much? I’m still not training with any regularity, which is a bad thing with a triathlon in August!  But every workout I get in gets me one step closer to where I want to be. Friday- 40…

Summer Sports Essentials


This post is sponsored by Bayer. To make sure these products are right for you, always read and follow the label. When I started dating Ryan I couldn’t wait to learn to play recreational softball. I grew up doing sports that required body control (gymnastics, running, cheerleading) but nothing with a ball. Hoo boy! I am STILL learning the proper…

Friday Fitness- It’s Back!


This was running through my head for the first three minutes of my first run postpartum. Then I got tired and had to walk! Ha ha ha! I got the clear to work out two weeks ago but I haven’t gotten into a routine yet, just working out when I feel like it. But that’s a good way to start.…

May Buffboxx- Protein Snacks FTW


I was more excited for this month’s BuffBoxx than I have been in the past. I’m doing the stay at home thing right now which has been a huge adjustment and it was so nice to have my monthly present to look forward to. TyTy and I would walk to the post office every other day to watch for it.…

1 Month Postpartum Fitness- Walking and Waiting


I knew going into my cesarean that I would not be allowed to do anything strenuous for six weeks after TyTy’s birth, but I had no idea  how hard that would be! During the first week I was still in pain and pretty slow moving from the incision, but once I hit Week 2 I felt better and ready to…
