Sometimes you just need a break from the internet. I’ve been in a blogging-rut lately, but I have BIG news to unveil in January!!! This little bloggy is going to reach a great audience and I’ll even be leading fitness challenges with a popular magazine.
So, today after a 20 minute run I got bored and popped in the Dancing with the Stars abs and buns ballroom workout. I definitely recommend it if you like to dance and have had some dance experience (it was a bit tricky at first and i've danced/cheered for years). It's nothing too difficult and if you aren't feeling other cardio I think it's a really fun alternate way of toning and burning calories!
Great idea! If I ever get my hands on one of those videos or find it online, I’ll try it out! Maybe other people will be interested too. It’s awesome that you know what type of cardio you like and are motivated to switch things up :)
This morning for breakfast was my first time trying fage greek yogurt, and after the first bite I realized I was going to have to eat it slow because of how it tasted. Any ideas as to what to add to fage's for breakfast to kind of mask the taste?
Greek yogurt is so popular these days! However, it’s expensive and if you don’t like the tart taste or dense consistency, there are plenty of other ways to get your protein and calcium! Don’t feel like you HAVE to eat it just because other people do.
But, if you want to give it another try, this is how I fancy-up my plain 0% fage!
Monday: None, missed cross-training, interview day @ my 2nd choice school!!!!!GAHHHHpray/fingers cross, left house at 6:15am and got home at 8pm…

Notes: I realized how hard it is to work-out when you have to get up super early, and do not get home for dinner until pretty late. That’s what happened on Monday and Tuesday when I had long days. When I got home, I just wanted to relax, eat, surf the web, vent, and sleep. I tried to get some more movement in during the day (i.e. walking) but I didn’t have enough energy or enthusiasm for a full workout. However, fitness is important to me and I will try to fit it in during future busy days!
Does anyone have consecutively long-ass days? What are some of your tactics for saving enough energy for a work-out or finding time? (6am-8pm completely on the go is pretty intense!) I guess I could have done some…kegels while driving in the car haha.
omgod, but I actually managed to do 3 strength training workouts this week! (even if they are just 15 minutes long…)
First of all, I think your blog is so inspiring and motivated for me and so so many other people and I just wanted to say thank you. :) Second, you're beautiful! That's actually it. Plus, you're definitely followed! :)
Hey there, thanks for reading and your support! I think you’re the 2nd person ever to have called me “beautiful” lol. I get a lot of “you’re so cute,” “awww you can’t reach…*endearing look*….” Let me know what topics are of interest to you and I’ll see if I can come up with something creative :) Happy Holidays!
It’s been a year’s work of finding what works for me. The right foods (and not too much), enough sleep, less caffeine, & more action and less complaining seems to do the body good. Easier said than done right?
Sunday: 14 mile run/jog, slowww 10:42 min/mile, I guess I was more concerned about just finishing than pushing myself. Although it’s suggested to run 60-90 seconds slower than your intended pace during your actual race during long runs…10:42 is weeee bit too slow lol. Also, I started running at 8:00am and didn’t finish until 11:30am which stressed me out. Next week, I’ll start my long run at least by 7am!
Still skipping out on strength training! Next week gotta do 3 days at least! With my new marathon training schedule, I have time on cross-training, short-running, and rest days.
