5 Ways to Get Motivated to Workout At Home

Hi Everyone!  Today I’m sharing five ways that can help you get motivated to workout at home.  If you have been following me for a while now, you know that recently I have started doing a lot more workouts with my running.  I think cross training, weight training, and strength training help to make you a stronger runner.  Plus, they help build muscles that running won’t.     more “5 Ways to Get Motivated to Workout At Home”

Life, Food, and Fitness Lately

Hey Everyone!  How was your week?  Mine was pretty great!  I had a good week of workouts.  I did a killer leg circuit on Thursday and my legs were still sore on Saturday!  My runs this week were okay.  I had a couple of bad ones, but that happens.  You just have to try again!  Here’s what I have been up to this week.    more “Life, Food, and Fitness Lately”

All About R.I.C.E.

This week was all about RICE!  That is not easy for me at all.  I tend to ignore aches and pains and keep pushing on.  But, I couldn’t ignore this.  I spent the first part of the week resting, icing, and elevating my feet while wearing compression socks.  So, this week was not a good one in terms of running.  But, it did get better towards the end, and my dad and I are planning a long run together next weekend.   more “All About R.I.C.E.”

The Word of the Week is Consistency

Hey Guys!  This is going to be a long recap, because it was a very busy week!  This week was all about being consistent!  This was my third week of marathon training, and I rocked it!  I hope I can keep this up throughout all of the training.  (15 more weeks!)  Since my second week didn’t go according to plan, I wanted to make sure that I worked hard this week.  I pushed myself hard in my workouts, but I also made sure to stretch a lot more, and get a lot of rest so my body could recover.  I really enjoyed my runs and workouts this week!  I felt stronger!    Later on when the training gets really hard, I’ll have to look back and remember how much fun I had this week! more “The Word of the Week is Consistency”

Motivation!

Hey! Hey!  Today I want to share some motivation with you.  I have been in desperate need of some lately, so I thought I’d share with you too.  During the winter months when it’s cold and dreary and the sun doesn’t shine much I have a hard time staying motivated.  I would rather curl up under a blanket with some hot chocolate and a good book or movie.  Even though sometimes we need that, we also need to be exercising too.  more “Motivation!”

A Solid Week of Workouts

Hi Friends!  Welcome to this week’s recap!  I had a really busy week of work, but I also had a solid week of workouts and runs.  And, the weekend brought some cooler temperatures so it was actually tolerable to be outside!  A busy week called for a relaxing weekend and that’s just what we did.  I included my weekend recap in this one since we relaxed all weekend.  Let’s go back to Monday.  more “A Solid Week of Workouts”

My Life This Week

Hi Friends!  I can’t believe another week has already gone by!  It feels like I was just sitting down yesterday to write a weekly recap.  Summer is definitely here.  This week our temperatures heated up quickly!  I had to get up really early to run before the days got too hot.  And you know I am not a morning runner!  But, I got it done. I really didn’t do much this week besides eating and running!   more “My Life This Week”
