Getting Pumped!

I’m so excited for my new vegan challenge! I’ve been planning out the menu and the workouts but it is not ready yet. I’ve decided to officially start when Daniel and I return from our trip on January 13th so stay tuned! However, I’m going to try to eat as vegan as possible before then to get my body a little better adjusted… I ate sausage and cheese last night! My parents had bought Daniel […]

Working It Out

This week has been surprisingly good for me in the exercise department! I’ve gone to the gym twice this week and one day I stayed home and did some strength training. Monday was a gym day. I was on the treadmill doing a workout suggested by my best friend, Charissa. She has been rocking it in the gym doing walking workouts only! Can you believe it? She suggests using the highest possible incline on the […]

A Job Well Done

So, I was in the kitchen A LOT yesterday. First off, I made a cake. But I didn’t eat any of it! Why, you ask? Because I made it for someone else. It was a thank you to a family friend. According to them, it was delicious! I was a little unsure on how it would turn out since the recommended bake time did not seem long enough. So I can’t show you the inside […]

Oh Baby I like It Raw

Yesterday started off fairly healthy with my usual breakfast of cereal (lame, I know, but it’s easy) and then some filling snacks.  I had some fresh orange and yellows peppers with delicious smooth ranch dip (it’s like crack to me, I love it).  I always thought that fresh vegetables were better for you than cooked but I wasn’t sure if that was myth or not so I decided to solve the mystery. Scientific American has […]

It’s A Double Rainbow All The Way

Yesterday was a busy day working on those said chairs that Daniel and I are re-staining and reupholstering. We tried to get a lot done so we could finally have two chairs complete! We decided for easier moving we’re not going to put all the chairs back together until they’re in our new place. However, I could not wait that long to see the final result so we pieced one together real quick. Here it is […]

One More Swai

Yesterday I woke up early and couldn’t go back to sleep. I decided to start my workout early by perusing Pinterest for some inspiration. I found this workout that sounded interesting. It was a good full body workout. Here’s the image for easier viewing. I did the Monday exercises. Then after that I went on a 2.5 mile run with Daniel! I felt great afterwards. It was my best workout day in a long time. […]
