Are we really enjoying life?

      3 Comments on Are we really enjoying life?

I sat staring at the water fountain and couldn’t help but think. I’m enjoying my trip and my time away from work. I work hard and earn my money, as many others out there do. But what I realized is that we aren’t often able to just enjoy life. Think about it. This is my average day: gym, work, decompress,… Read more »

Music Monday // A Silent Film

      Comments Off on Music Monday // A Silent Film

I know I’ve said this before but I absolutely LOVE when people turn me on to new music.  Sometimes I’m pretty sure it’s not actually new to me but it’s the first time I actually stop, listen, learn who the band / what the song is and actually develop an opinion.  It’s funny how that can work.

      Comments Off on The Final Photo a Day June

I have this thing with the Photo A Day challenges, I never actually do a very good job at completing them, at least after the first couple months I did it.  This generally happens when there is a topic that doesn’t interest me or inspire me, or I have a super busy day and just don’t have time to take… Read more »

FitMixer Bootcamp – A Check In

      2 Comments on FitMixer Bootcamp – A Check In

The first day of FitMixer Bootcamp seems so long ago, yet it’s also going so quickly! I’ve been loving it and while I’ve spent some time talking about my challenges with counting calories and how much I’ve loved the workouts, I thought it was time for an overall check-in with how I’m doing and if I’m seeing any improvement. While… Read more »

Foodie for a Day // Evening Snacks

      6 Comments on Foodie for a Day // Evening Snacks

As I’ve mentioned before, part of the FitMixer Bootcamp is following a personalized nutrition plan.  The best thing about this plan is that they don’t tell you what to eat but rather what you should aim for calorie, protein, fat and carb wise for each meal, snack and overall for the day.  This is perfect as it leaves you room… Read more »
