You can do the hard things – 2018 MU Marathon

In January – we all decided to run the Marshall half marathon. I was training. I was NOT runner at any time in the past but I bought some shoes and got out there. 1 mile at a time. I worked my way up to an 8 mile run at less than 10 min pace by May.

My sister IS a runner. She ran last year’s Marshall half marathon in 2:10. HOW SWAY. She used running in the past to control her depression. She lost 80 lbs of weight with diet and running and lifting. She is an amazing inspiration.

Weekly update – week 18

I’m 18 weeks pregnant and everyone has been fussing at me to get more than 5 hours of sleep ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. So I have but it’s cut into my blog time.

As a quick update – I feel awesome and cute. I only got dressed 2x this week but that’s ok ๐Ÿ˜‚. I also organized under the sink in the bathroom in my nesting escapades.

Started my next fitness program and I’m feeling great. This week was only 15 minutes – next week goes to 25.

Anywho, a real post will come soon but for now – Here’s some pics of my pregnancy flyness over the past couple weeks.

Fitness plans! 17 weeks

Yal. I’m getting big – so people have been asking me about my next fitness plans.

Honestly I still feel great – I haven’t started to feel off balance yet. Other than being sleepy I don’t feel much different. So my plans haven’t changed!

On 10/22 I’m starting a newly revamped program called Shift Shop with some of my new challengers :). We are starting out with a prep week and then going into the program.

What is SHIFT SHOP?
SHIFT SHOP is Chris Downing’s breakthrough conditioning program that has helped thousands of people of all fitness levels see maximum results in minimal time. The program starts you off slow, alternating between cardio and strength workouts-then gradually increases the intensity week by week.

Starting Oct. 22, the SHIFT SHOP will incorporate the Proving Grounds – two new workouts that score your performance against the clock with a series of challenges that test your speed and strength. You’ll swap out one Speed workout and one Strength workout for Proving Grounds workouts every week.

Workouts are from 15 – 45 minutes in length and a modifier is ready.

Not sure it’s for you? Try a free sample workout here!

Contact me to get everything you need to get started on 10/22! There are currently 4 spots available for this group.

Blueberry cookies? Eh.. sure!

Yal know my beezy bee is a picky eater, right? Always has been. And when I was his age I was too so I try to be understanding.

Today I told him we were going to start eating more fruits and veggies. Somehow, from that he translated that we were going to have blueberry cookies.

Soooo I took a peanut butter cookie recipe and modified it and added some blueberries.

Ingredients:

About 1 cup peanut butter

1 tsp of Nutella

About 1/4 cup of flour

A splash of water

1 whole banana

Blueberries

LIIFT4 results and review

Alright guys – I finished ALL 8 WEEKS of LIIFT4. It’s a 4-day a week 30-40 minute program that’s a mix of lifting and HIIT. It’s by Joel Freeman – and looking at him is reason enough to give it a try. But in all honesty – I loved the program!

The extra days off gave a lot of room for cross training (running). And it definitely helped during those early pregnancy weeks when I was super tired to not have long workouts.

Results wise, my results are cleary skewed since I’m pregnant haha. However – I did continually get stronger (raising my highest weights from 20 lbs to 35 lbs by the end of 8 weeks) and I didn’t gain any weight. I was inconsistent with my eating due to nausea but that’s just part of the game right now.

I definitely suggest the program to anyone! It’s fun, it’s effective, and it’s short! haha. If you want to try – hit me up!

How to stay on track while you’re traveling

I travel a lot more than usual now that I’m free from my 9-5 (see more details here). One of the hardest things about traveling is that it gets me all off schedule fitness wise. However, I have figured out a way to not ruin all of my progress or fall off the wagon while out of town.

80 day obsession full results

This post is officially 2 months late but it is what it is lol. In the meantime we have opened an entire training studio location, traveled state and county lines, and my team size has doubled. So I’ve neglected blogging but I’m working on it.

I’ve already covered most of my thoughts on the program. Basically the results are LIT and if I followed the meal plan for reals id be beyonce by day 80. I wasn’t as dedicated as I should have been. I also was stressed trying to fit in a preworkout meal and an hour workout each day. I’m spoiled by 30 min workouts.

BUT almost everyone who went to Mexico had just finished their 80 days and we were ALL baddies ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ
