Friday Fitness- Fall Walking


It’s funny, when I was recovering from my C-section and only allowed to go for walks, I was so bored and so anxious to get running. Five months later, I’m back at work as well as taking care of the baby, and I find walks with him to be a relaxing time for the two of us to bond and…

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- 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.

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- Baby Before Fitness


You guys, nothing derails your workout plans like a baby! I thought joining a gym with child care would do away with excuses, but if your kid is sick or has you up at 4 am, that planned gym visit is not going to happen! I just have to take a deep breath and adjust to this flexible, unscheduled lifestyle…

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…

One reality that sank in this week is that the Raymond Triathlon is only two weeks away and I (surprise! surprise!) haven’t been training much.  Ugh! What is wrong…

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- 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?

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…
