Hi, friends! I heard a rumor that you wanted to see more workouts on CNC. Well, technically, I polled my followers on Instagram, but there was an overwhelming response for new workouts. Workouts to try this week? You’ve got it! You guys know I love a good sweat session, so I’m going to share 3 new workouts on the blog on Sunday mornings. Basically, you’ll get a variety of workouts to try for the upcoming…

Summer is just around the corner, which means I need to get my butt (quite literally) into gear. My diet is mostly on track via macros and overall balanced eating, but I know I need to step it up a notch with my workouts if I want to look and feel great come beach season. My booty has always been a “problem area” for me, so a couple of years ago, I decided to focus…

Here’s a 5K Training Plan to Celebrate Global Running Day! I don’t know about you, but my love for running always seems to increase when the snow melts and the warm weather arrives. With Global Running Day (aka National Running Day) not too far away, I wanted to make sure I was fully prepared for this fun running holiday. Sure, I’ve run all winter long, but only on the treadmill. I’ve dominated Orangetheory-style workouts, but…

I always wanted to run the Boston Marathon, so when I was approached with a free bib, it was an opportunity that I just couldn’t refuse. At the time, I was only 3-months postpartum and running just a few miles at a time. I typically ran with Quinn in a jogging stroller, which often included lots of walking breaks, so I really didn’t think I could run 26.2 miles. Obviously, physically, running a marathon was going…

Happy New Year! I can’t believe 2019 is here! It’s that time of year again when we’re all inspired to get healthy and fit. But, of course, doing the same workout day after day gets old real quick, and it definitely won’t help you stick to your goals for the new year. An easy way to get motivated? Try each of these workouts (3 per week) to keep you motivated all month long! And the…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! 🙂 Ours was really nice – recap here! I wanted to pass along some #motivation for getting back on track after the holiday. I haven’t done one of these sample macro days in awhile, so I figured it was the perfect time to share. I hope the eats and workouts inspire some of yours this week! Additionally, if you’re looking for some macro motivation with your…

Hi, friends! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! 🙂 I heard a rumor that you guys enjoy these Sample Macro Day + Workouts to Try blog posts, so I’ll be sure to keep them coming on a regular basis. I hope they give you some fun ideas for your own meals, snacks, and workouts! Breakfast – I was testing out a new CNC recipe and enjoyed a piece of this 4-Ingredient Salsa…

Hi, guys! We’re in Newport, Rhode Island for the annual Haupert weekend. It’s EASILY one of our favorite weekends ever, and we truly look forward to it all year long. Needless to say, I am psyched for a weekend away with our family. I’ll have a full recap next week, but, in the meantime, here is another day of eats + macro breakdowns. I really enjoy sharing these blog posts because I actually don’t track macros…

Hi, guys! I’m home from all of my travels – and, whoa, it was a crazy couple of weeks. I had so many fun adventures, but I am definitely ready to get back to a regular routine. It’s always a challenge to keep up a consistent workout schedule on the road and, of course, healthy eating isn’t easy either. Instead of stressing over not being able to exercise and eat the way I want, I…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! Even though it’s only been 3 weeks at OPEX, I’m already starting to feel some positive changes in my body – like feeling both sides of my lower back touching the car seat when I’m driving and sore abs on my RIGHT side, which has probably never happened ever. My left side is always super tight and angry, so it was a nice change. Things are definitely happening, and I’m so…

Hey, hey! I completed my first week of workouts at OPEX, and I’m feeling really great overall! I actually don’t *feel* like I’m working out all that much, but I’m starting to realize I need to change my thinking about that. I think a lot of us – myself included – believe that you need to feel exhausted and sore after a workout for it to “count.” I remember going all out, 6 days a…

Hi, guys! If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed a bit less CrossFit in my Stories. I know. It’s a big change for me. CrossFit is so, so, so fun, and I would do it everyday if my body could handle it. But, sadly, it cannot. So, I’ve decided to cut back and deal with some pretty bad muscle imbalances (due to scoliosis) and nagging injuries (due to old age). I recently…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! How was your weekend? I have a recap of ours coming tomorrow (as well as the LAUNCH of my leggings!!), but I wanted to share my “fitness & eats” from last week to give you some ideas for your own. Last week started out a little slow on the fitness front, but it picked up with three awesome workouts in a row. I typically like the “2 days on/one…
