Weekly Workouts 12/5-12/11

It’s been another week where I’ve struggled to fit my workouts in. Between the RV needing some extra attention, being in colder areas and thus outdoor runs not sounding as appealing, and making time for some fun and much needed extra sleep, my workouts just haven’t been happening quite as much as I’d like. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s less about the number of workouts and more about how my body handles the stress when I’m staying consistent.


With starting the 24 Day Challenge in January, I’m going to do more than just focus on clean eating, it’s about my overall health – active lifestyle, clean eats, and positive mentality.

Weekly Workouts 11/21-12/4

You know it’s been a busy (and fun!) week when you put “write Friday blog post” on your to-do list without realizing that TODAY is Friday…yep, that just happened. But the good news is, it’s really been a killer week!

We had a few days free from events where Sam and I could explore Tennessee. We spent some time in Graceland…


…taking over Nashville…


…and now we’re hanging out in Knoxville at an all-day event! I got my butt kicked with the 6am crew and now we have a little downtime to rest before the noon class. And by rest I mean, sit in the RV outside of the box and write blog posts, send emails and make lots of phone calls. Sounds about right, right? ;)

Anyway, I’m starting to find a groove to working out on the road. It doesn’t come without it’s challenges, especially on the days I plan to run and then it rains outside but we’re getting there. The other day we stayed at a RV park where they had a “fitness center” aka they had a treadmill, bench with one barbell, 2 dumbbells, a weight machine, small trampoline and a few “as seen on TV” kinds of machines. Thankfully I don’t need much to get in a workout and we made it work.
