Thoughts & Things

Hey! How are you? Long time right? I kept asking you to bare with me. That I have a lot to share. And I do! Sometimes life has other plans. My life had completely changed. Including my 9-5. I have a different schedule, and I don’t even work out at the same time. It’s all…

#YWADEDICATE

It’s that time of the year again! When my favorite Yogi, Yoga with Adriene, announces her brand new 30 day challenge. I took part of her TRUE Challenge during January 2018 and it was an incredible journey. I honestly didn’t expect to cry on that very last day, but I did. I couldn’t believe I…

#GymFashionista

I call myself a Gym Fashionista. I have way more fun shopping for gym clothes than for regular clothes. Is that weird? I can’t be the only one, right? I take way too much pride in matching and getting my outfits together. And recently I purged a lot of clothes out. These were pieces that…

Sparkle & Sweat

Unlike the majority of the weight lifting community, I wear gloves. I know-I know, gloves are “bitch mittens”. Very crude, of course. Leave a bunch of muscle heads pumping iron and watch the testosterone fly. Insert epic eye roll here. Whomp! Whomp! Not that I need to explain myself, but I prefer wearing gloves for…

ELF Active

There are some days you don’t want to look like hell at the gym. But wearing makeup seems like a silly idea. I mean you are going to sweat it out anyway. Granted that has never stopped me from l wearing said makeup. Sue me, I don’t want to scare people. Plus it makes me…

Gym Equipment Haul

Leg day. Yes I went there. The “dreaded” leg day. I mean I LOVE leg day so much, I do it twice a week. It’s pretty normal in my world, but I know you’ll probably think I am CRAZY! There are times that your gym doesn’t have everything you need, or if they do usually…

Let’s Talk Amino Acids

Recently I added an amino acid supplement during my work out. I drink as I go through my work out. I honestly don’t know how I survived without it. BUT before I get to my reasons why I decided to add aminos to my work out, let’s talk about what they are. What are amino acids?…

#FitFriday Chest & Back Superset

It’s Finally Friday! What a long week, but that’s ok. The weekend is the perfect time to grab some weights and work on your gains. And just in time Jim and I put together a Chest & Back Superset just for you. What is a Superset? A superset is when you combine two different exercises without rest between them. Let’s…

#FitFriday Weather Break In February

Could y’all believe that last weekend it was in the 60’s?! It was glorious to have such an amazing weather break in February. Usually, we are freezing our butts here in the northeast, and suffering from horrible cabin fever. I will admit, this winter has been mild. So, no I am not complaining at all….

Gym Hair Don’t Care

One of the things that keeps me motivated at the gym, is fun workout clothes. For years now, one phrase has been my favorite, Gym Hair Don’t Care. Seriously my hair is a disaster after the gym. So when I first read the quote, it was as if someone was thinking of me when they wrote…

#FitFriday | Self-Maintenance

I want to take a moment and step away from the bar for just a moment, and touch back on last weeks tip of the week from Jim. Self-maintenance. As I mentioned on last weeks blog, I was struggling with my knee these past two weeks. It was my fault, I know this. I admit it…

#FitFriday | Shoulders 101

Happy #FitFriday! We have now shared Biceps and Triceps 101. So today it seemed fitting to work in some shoulders. For anyone that may not know, the shoulders are the upper joint of the human arm and the part of the body between this and the neck. These muscles become useful for when you want to…
