I’m sharing my experience with overtraining and why I quit working out out at Orangetheory. Hey there! I wanted to hop on here and talk about my recent experience with overtraining and why I quit Orangetheory. If you’ve been following along for a little bit, I’ve been kind of beating around the bush about it, just because I was trying to figure things out and what exactly was going on. I was also waiting to…

Did you know that many women are overtraining and don’t even know it? Maybe you’re one of them! Overtraining can cause many health issues, including weight gain…probably the exact opposite of a regular exerciser expects. Let’s explore. You: Overtraining In science-y terms, overtraining syndrome is an imbalance between training and recovery. What that means is that there is too much exercise (for you) at too high of an intensity (for you) without enough recovery time…

No gym? No problem! If your gym is closed and you’re stuck at home, you’re probably worried about losing all of the progress you’ve made. You might not be able to change the situation right now, but you CAN still make progress if you get creative with your workouts and do what you can. If there’s a will, there’s a way! “Those who say they can and those who say they can’t are both right.”…

I admit it. Sometimes I struggle to keep my priorities straight.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Especially when I’m short on time or low on energy. Between being a wife, a mom, a coach, and a blogger, my days get pretty hectic!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I try to get to the gym on most days. I really do! But sometimes, I just can’t. And I don’t want to make excuses. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ On those days I’ll usually just workout at home….

Working Out While Injured No matter how careful we are, injuries can be an unfortunate side effect of working out. If the injury is severe, it makes sense to rest the affected area to prevent further injury. But we don’t want to lose the gains we’ve achieved by resting for too long. So how do you balance the risk of further injury with the desire to stay in shape when you’re injured? How about working…

Once upon a time, I wrote a post about my favorite black leggings. It was back in 2017, but I still love black leggings because 1) they’re flattering; 2) they’re no-nonsense; and 3) they don’t show sweat during workouts (because I’m a sweaty beast). More than two years later, I still love plain black leggings, but I’ve ventured out a bit into patterns and dark colors. I know, I’m sooooo adventurous! 😉 I’ve basically been…

Hey friends! Happy Monday! Just popping in real quick to share some Monday things with you! 🙂 First up, we had our 7th annual Friendsgiving celebration on Saturday. I did a terrible job snapping photos, but, hey, I promise I had an amazing time. I was busy eating, drinking, and being merry with friends, which, of course, is what Friendsgiving is all about! 🙂 Highlights… Bringing a couple of bottles of Mal’s birth year wine….

Hey guys! Welcome to the next CNC Instagram Live – Orangetheory addition! For those of you that have just started following along, I’ve been going to Orangetheory (OTF) regularly for about a month and have been absolutely loving it! I actually used to go to another location before and loved it, but it was almost a 30 minute drive – a bit far to take a class, so I wasn’t going very often. Luckily for…

Hey friends! I woke up to my Teechino (+ Nutpods + marine collagen) waiting for me in the fridge this morning with a note from Mal on it. How sweet, right? I typically make my morning Teechino the night before because waking up to it, ready to pour over ice, makes me so happy – and finding a surprise note really started my day off on the right foot! 🙂 It’s the little things in…

Gahhhh! The Hauperts can’t catch a break lately! First Murphy with his neck and back issues… Me with a never-ending flare and healthcare frustrations… And then Quinn gets bit by a mosquito and his face swells up! The poor kid woke up with a swollen eye yesterday morning. He got stung by a mosquito over the weekend, and the spot on his forehead swelled up like crazy. I took him to the doctor yesterday morning…

Hi, friends! I’m back from Arlington, Virginia and absolutely loved my time there. The nice people from Stay Arlington invited me for a visit over the weekend. Arlington was named the “fittest city in America” two years in a row by the American College of Sports Medicine, so they wanted me to see what it was all about. I got to experience all sorts of fun ways to be active in Arlington, and I can’t wait to…

Hi, guys! I had such a great time at the Brooks Innovation Summit last weekend in Seattle. What a cool company! Seriously!! I’m so proud to be a part of their run ambassadors! Brooks is all about running. I mean, ALL they do is run – unlike a lot of other fitness companies on the market, who embody a number of different sports and activities. And, for that reason, Brooks has invested a lot of time…
