Hey everyone! I’m still on vacation but have a great post for you today! Last year an article was posted in the New York Times talking about “Why Women Can’t Do Pull-Ups.” Of course this pissed me off! Here are two videos to prove that pull-ups/chin-ups can be done by women (my apologies in advance for the bad camera angles): Me doing Chin-Ups  […]

Hello all! I am still on vacation but wanted to give you something to cook this week: Whole Wheat Coconut Waffles Ingredients 2 organic eggs 1 3/4 cup skim milk 1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil (heat in microwave beforehand for about 15 seconds) 1 tablespoon honey 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour […]

 I wanted to end this week with an awesome workout for you all to try over the weekend (click image to enlarge)! It’s finally vacation time for me so the family and I (and my tense sciatic nerve) are headed to the beach! There is no better way to end my “reset button” month than chill-axing on the beach! Last year […]

We meet again Capital Hill… You may remember the horrible run I had a few weeks ago running up Capital Hill. I had a 5-mile run on the schedule yesterday so I decided to run up Capital Hill and loop around to the Mall. It went much better than before! When I got back I foam rolled doing the exercises […]

I am the first to admit that I am just not that creative when it comes to creating new recipes from scratch. Workouts yes! Recipes not so much! Occasionally inspiration will hit me and other times I modify recipes that I find. So here begins a new series: I Made It! I’ll be highlighting my favorite recipes that I find on the internet (Pinterest […]

It was a busy, busy weekend! No workouts for me but that was a good thing since my back was definitely not cooperating (more on that later). My mom was still in town and Chris’ parents stopped for an overnnight stay on their way down to Myrtle Beach. Friday night started out with a block party on our street. It […]

Monday Motivation Last week’s workouts were pretty good! I keep a weekly log for my weight lifting routines so I can see progress, keep myself motivated and hold myself accountable. As you can see I didn’t get in a Back or Biceps workout. I did do some pull-ups but that was it really. Sunday: 4 mile run My Garmin wasn’t […]

We made it to Friday! I hope your week has been a good one! Before I get to the food (the best part!) I wanted to share my run with you from yesterday. I took the day off from work because I was scheduled to get my last cortisone injection in my back. In the morning, to get my mind […]

Instead of “What I Ate Wednesday” I figured I would change it up and do a “Where I Went Wednesday.” I don’t want to bore you with what I have been eating since it’s been about the same since last week. I have been trying a few new recipes out and once tweaks are made, I will share those with […]

Everyone starting their week off with a bang? I wanted to share some of the info I learned in last weekend’s Protein Essentials seminar I took with Teri Gentes. This is the 4th year I have taken sessions with Teri and she always has so much useful information but encourages us to use the information how we want because what […]
