Happy Friday! I’m coming at you from back on the East coast — Maryland to be exact. I’m here for the 2017 IDEA Personal Trainer Institute East where I’ll be sitting through days of sessions learning about fitness and getting continuing education credits to renew my personal training certification. The conference center is actually pretty close to where I used to live while I was in pharmacy school, so it’s been cool to be back in the area. I’ll reconnect with Neil, his parents, and my mom this weekend after my last session. While I’m in sessions all day, you… View Post

It always amazes me that I’m able to come up with five different things every week to share with you guys. Granted, many times it’s new foods or something along those lines, but to do it every week is pretty awesome. Plus it makes me get outside my comfort zone since I love routine so much.

Hello friends! Five days down on my fitness challenge and I’m feeling pretty good.

Actually, I think Neil might force me to do my taxes which I am not happy about, but I guess it’s better to get them over with now. Since there’s no football on… View Post

Welcome to Friday! This weekend is another busy one, but I’m still hoping to squeeze in a nap at some point. Tomorrow I am going to another weekend workout, which will become a regularĀ thing since I am going to be starting a 4-week fitness challenge on Monday. I’ll share more details with you next week and likely after the challenge is over, but it should be fun! Saturday night we have dinner plans with some friends and then Sunday is the Superbowl. I don’t really have any vested interest in who wins, but I’ll be tuning in for the commercials… View Post
