New Routine: How I’m fitting in my workouts

It’s a new routine, new beginnings, and a whole lot of chaos. I recently started a new job that I’m really excited about! As if we haven’t had enough change in our household lately with our move, buying a house, my husband starting a new job, and taking care of our little girl! I’m in my second week and it’s funny that I actually feel more organized now that I’m back at work and not staying at home with Ady….

Buying a Treadmill for your Home

For a really long time, I have wanted my own treadmill.  Like a really long time.  Just ask my husband.  He’s heard about it… a lot. So when we left our condo in the city and moved into a house, I knew this was my chance to get one!  The only problem was that I didn’t know what to get.  So I began my research.  I thought it might be helpful to write about what I found along the way…

What Happened When I Didn’t Weight Myself for a Month

(Image via Goodhousekeeping.com) A lot of people question whether or not to weigh themselves regularly.  Some people believe that you should know what your weight is all the time while others believe you should just trust how your clothes feel and go based on that.  I’ve heard some people even throw out their scales.  As I usually believe with most things in life, I think moderation is key so I’m somewhere in the middle. I definitely think that you should…

Another type of barre experience: Flybarre

I have been loving the barre classes lately as I’m sure you learned from my last post.  They are such a great exercise to incorporate into my running.  And as I mentioned, they are all so different so don’t get discouraged if you try one barre class and don’t like it.  Keep trying them and I’m sure you will find one you enjoy! The most recent one I tried was Flybarre.  You might have heard of Flywheel which I actually…

Check-In: Six Months Post Baby

Six months.  Our little girl is already 6 months old.  I can’t believe it.  It seems like it’s gone so fast but at the same time, so slow. If you would have asked me 6 months ago where I thought I would be at this point, it’s pretty laughable.  I would tell you that my baby would be completely sleeping through the night, I would be fitting back in my favorite pair of jeans, and would have being Super Mom…

Got 20 minutes? Try this Hills and Sprints Treadmill workout!

It’s that time of year where as winter settles in we spend more time indoors and of course, on the treadmill.  While I am willing to run in fairly cold weather, I draw the line below 30 degrees.  It’s just not fun. So the other day I headed to the gym determined to get a good workout.  I had limited time but wanted something that would keep me interested, challenge me, and make the time go fast. I came up…
