Friday Fitness- August BuffBoxx & Summer Laziness


I had to add lazy summer into the title because man I lose all motivation in August. I think it’s because the weather at it’s hottest but you …. You may have seen my BuffBoxx goodies on my Instagram Stories, but I thought I would share what came in for this month. This month I received: BuffBoxx mini frisbee BuffBoxx…

Back to School: Set Fall Fitness Goals


Crazy to think that every August from now on I will be preparing for the year ahead at school- because I’ll be a TEACHER! This semester is my final semester as a student teacher and then I’ll be a certified teacher. 🙂 September always feels like another new year doesn’t it? Summer is over, kids are back in school, you’re…

Guest Post: 4 Ways to Stay in Shape


There are quite a few healthy choices women can make to feel and look better, from eating habits and regular physical activity to yoga and a little bit of pampering now and then. Just remember to accept who you are, with all your strengths and flaws, because how you think about yourself is reflected into all areas of your life. You are what you eat…

Friday Fitness- I Live to Frolf!


Isn’t it funny how your energy comes and goes in waves? Last week I was up at 5:30-6 a.m. out there running or doing NTC HIIT workouts and this week….. I’ve been sleeping until the last possible moment. I don’t know why I’m so tired this week but here it is Friday morning with not much in the way of training to my…

Friday Fitness- Morning Workouts for the Win!


There is nothing better to get you out of bed for an a.m. workout than super hot weather! We’ve been experiencing one hell of a heatwave the last little bit and by the time it cooled off enough to head out I was in bed. Literally- I went to be at 7:30 pm one night, I love to sleep. So…

Friday Fitness- Time to Shake Things Up


Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe we’re already into July? Yeesh! I hope you all enjoyed celebrating Canada last weekend! How many of you got in a workout? Because I didn’t…whoops!

2017 Banff Half Marathon Race Recap


The Banff Marathon took place in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and while I didn’t hit my goal, I’m happy to have finished it. You know how they say you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink? Well, you can put a sprinter into a distance run but you can’t make…

Friday Fitness- BuffBoxx Monthly Subscription Box


Hello guys and gals- next week is the Banff Half Marathon and I do NOT feel ready. But I’ll go out there and try my best. I’m ready to be done with distance running and switch my focus to shorter runs and weight lifting a little more anyway. I started to get back into a lifting routine but it was…

Friday Fitness- Low Motivation to Train


When I signed up for my first ever half marathon (Seawheeze) last year I was nervous but excited. When I told my sisters what I had done. Leilani laughed until she cried because I have always been really bad at distance running, especially sticking to a training program. I have done several road races and triathlons where I signed up…

Friday Fitness- Losing Your Car Keys


Happy Friday everyone! This is going to be a short post because Ryan and I have to take off for North Dakota for Ben’s graduation soon. That’s right Fargo- the Tynan’s are descending upon you- mwuah ha ha ha! I love going to new places and though Fargo doesn’t sound overly exciting, at least it’s new! THANK YOU to all…

Friday Fitness- Lifting Makes my Legs Heavy


This is a belated Friday Fitness that maybe I could have skipped but I want some advice from the distance runners out there. Ever since my practicum ended, I have been slaying in the workout department. When you spend six weeks getting up at 5 a.m. to get to work, it’s pretty easy to get up at 6:30 a.m. to…

Guest Post: 5 Ways to Stay Motivated to Train


Finding motivation to work out shouldn’t be so difficult, seeing that it is our wellbeing that’s at stake. However, humans are predominantly prone to laziness and excuses, which is why doing what’s good for them comes as a duty they don’t rush to attend to. The truth is that exercising regularly is extremely beneficial for us, but isn’t easy to…

Aerial Yoga is Nauseatingly Fun


I meant to post about my first experience trying aerial yoga last week but that one blissful hour of fun and laughter was the only one I had that wasn’t spent hunched over a computer lesson planning. Cat and I went in to Core Elements nervous and not knowing what to expect. Would everyone else be old pros and showing us…

PowerBar ProteinPlus Giveaway!


When I first began weight lifting and running in 1999, the old school PowerBar’s were my go to protein bar. I used to pack them with me to track meets to snack on before a race. But since then, so many different protein bars have flooded the market, but the quality among them really varies don’t you think? This past…
