Last Week's Workouts

IT.IS.RACE.WEEK. After all this time it’s hard to believe that it’s finally here. We fly out Thursday morning. Between fitting in runs and workouts, cleaning the house, and trying to prep for my substitute at school, the last couple of weeks have been a blur! BUT–I’m done with two-a-day workouts (for a while at least) and this coming week is going to include some yoga, a few runs, and a lot of Disney magic!

Making Healthy Choices in the Classroom with fit4Schools

My journey to a healthy lifestyle hasn’t always come naturally to me. As a teenager, staying in shape was easy. I played sports throughout the school year, so I stayed conditioned. My nutritional choices weren’t the best, but I didn’t think they were that bad. After I went to college I became much less active and my nutritional choices got worse. I had sodas and toaster pastries for breakfast everyday. I learned (to the tune of about 30 pounds) that something would have to change, but I didn’t know where to start. I remember thinking, “No one taught me how to eat healthy! There should’ve been a class on this in high school!”

An Honest Studio Tone It Up Review

Tone It Up recently released their new app, Studio Tone It Up. This week also concludes the #TIU21 challenge which utilizes daily workouts within the app. I’ve been participating in the challenge and testing out the app for a few weeks, so I thought it was time for a review.

As a self-proclaimed “Tone It Up Girl” I knew I had to try out the app, or at least take advantage of the free trial period. That said, it was very important to me to approach the app from an objective point of view and not get caught up in “drinking the Kool-Aid”. I love and admire Karena and Katrina, but I don’t take their word as gospel. I like to do my own research and testing, and make my own decisions! That’s how this honest Studio Tone It Up review came to fruition.

Where is October going? Am I the only one who feels as if the month JUST started? I love October, please slow down juuuuust a little bit!

It was another busy week around these parts, but I still managed to fit in most of the activity I had originally planned. This week, I begin my taper and I’m kind of excited. I love distance running, but I’m looking forward to a break for a little while! All right, let’s get into the week now…

Tabata Inspired Interval Workout

When it comes to quick and effective workouts, intervals are the way to go! When I’m not training for a half marathon, I incorporate interval workouts into my routine much more frequently. To be honest, I’m looking forward to the end of my current training cycle so I can incorporate workouts like this much more often.

I’ve sung the praises for intervals many times because there are so many things you can do with them! This workout will have you sweating from head to toe while also hitting all your major muscles! It’s “Tabata Inspired” in that it doesn’t follow the Tabata protocol exactly. But it’s fun none the less and will get the job done under 30 minutes.
