This year I had decided that I wanted to keep an ongoing list of shows and movies we watch. Why? No reason really. But just like I keep a running list of books I read, it's kind of fun to look back and see what we watched! (When I mentioned on January 1st that I… Continue reading Watching, and an even BETTER cardio option!?
On Sunday I wrapped up my 2nd week of this "January Shred". For the second week in a row, I was 100% on my workouts (5 strength, 3 cardio sessions). I've been thinking about this, because I know for a fact that these are the first weeks in a VERY LONG TIME that I have… Continue reading All or nothing

Hello! I have nothing too exciting to share today- just checking in. Let's see. Macro Tracking: Day 2 So I successfully completed Day 2 of macro tracking.

Two very random, different topics for today: Exercise intensity: How hard do you really need to work?? This is one of my miscellaneous musings that kind of rolls around in my head for a while, and then eventually works its way out into a blog post. Haha. A couple weeks ago, an old college friend… Continue reading Exercise intensity and a great newsletter
I was at the gym yesterday afternoon, doing a full body strength workout. (My current plan includes 2 leg/ab days, 1 back/biceps day, 1 chest/shoulders day and 1 full body day. I was thinking yesterday- I think the full body days are my favorites. It's enough variety that no single body part gets overly fatigued,… Continue reading My favorite people at the gym

Here is my burning question of the day: I've been mulling this topic over for a long time now. When I… Continue reading A poll: audio habits while exercising
Yay for the weekend! Work Report I had a good week, but it felt a bit on the intense side. Mostly due to work- I've continued training our new employee. She's amazing and it's going really well, but it's still just SO much constant interaction. Fortunately, I think the "worst" is behind us. She is… Continue reading It’s the weekend/ work + workout update
Hey hey, look who finally went back to the gym yesterday!! I did. Typing this title made me cringe, because I know for a fact that I've written multiple "yay, look at me, I'm getting back to consistent gym exercise!!" posts over the past couple of years. And if I've written the same thing repeatedly,… Continue reading Back in the gym (again, again, again- okay for REAL)
