Thank you Victoria’s Secret for sponsoring this post. While this was a sponsored opportunity from Victoria’s Secret, all content and opinions expressed here are my own. Heyyyyyy! I have another killer kettlebell workout for you guys! Are you ready?! This one incorporates three movements that work your entire body from head to toe. They’re a mix of strength and endurance and focus on both your upper and lower body as well as your core and posterior…

Good morning! If you’re looking to stay active during the holiday season, I have just the workout for you. It only involves three movements, including one with a kettlebell, so it’s great for when you’re short on time or motivation. Once you start, you’ll quickly realize that the combination of exercises really challenges your body, which means you’ll get an effective workout from head-to-toe! And if you need some additional motivation (or a gift for a fitness lover), new workout…

Heyyyy! How about a fun kettlebell workout? Are you ready for this one? It’s definitely an awesome workout because it’s challenging both mentally and physically! Here’s how to do this workout… First things first: Grab a kettlebell. I recommend using a “medium” weight. You want it to be fairly challenging, but you don’t want to kill yourself either. I used 35 pounds just to give you an idea.   Ok, here we go. Start with Kettlebell Swings and…

Hello and happy NEW YEAR, my friends! I am so glad it’s 2015 because I’m looking forward to so much this year… Quinn growing, walking, and talking, traveling (oh, how I’ve missed it), running the Boston Marathon, summer (yep, just plain old summer), and so much more! Hello, 2015! Since a lot of us (myself included) are kicking off the new year with our health and wellness in mind, I thought I would share a new favorite…

Hi, friends! How’s your Monday going so far? Quinn is a napping machine today (who is this kid? I think Mimi has magical powers), so I had some extra time to create a pin-able workout, order our holiday cards, start dinner, and write this blog post. Hooray for naps! So, this workout”¦ I am still sore from it, and I did it LAST Wednesday at CrossFit. Holy cow. It totally smoked my arms. The second set of push-ups, which…

Good morning, friends! So, this workout was a fun one! It was fast and furious and over before I knew it. Love that. As for the name, I joked to Mal that all of the granola I’ve eaten lately “fueled” me through it. Haha! For this workout, you need a barbell (I used 65 pounds), a kettlebell (I used 45 pounds), somewhere to run, and a timer. The movements: Power Cleans Push Presses Kettlebell Swings Running…

My CrossFit box did “Dirty Diana” a few weeks ago, and I saved it as a “must do” workout for at home. I finally had a chance to do it this past weekend, and it was definitely a lung-smoker! For this workout, you only need a kettlebell, timer, and some space to run (outside or on a treadmill). I also used a yoga mat, but only because I didn’t want to scrape up my knees on…

Hi, guys! I can’t believe week 2 of the Get Healthy, Stay Healthy Challenge is almost over! How are you doing with logging your four workouts this week? I know it’s only Thursday and you still have a couple of days to go, but I figured this post would be a little kick in the butt if you haven’t completed or planned all four of your workouts yet! So far I’ve done three out of…

It was a gorgeous day in downtown Boston yesterday! It was a little chilly, but beautiful and sunny at the same time. My doctor’s appointment went well. It was short and sweet like I expected. My doctor wants to wean me off the Uceris over the next few weeks, which, truthfully, I am really worried about. I have had ZERO success weaning off steroids in the past, so I’m really trusting my doctor and hoping…

After breakfast, Mal and I headed to CrossFit for a (FUN) partner workout. Workout Our coaches wanted us to match up with someone of a different athletic ability (i.e. guy + girl), so Mal and I teamed up for our second ever partner WOD. (Remember our first one together? It was so fun and we killed it!) METCON: The REAL Swingy Balls In teams of two: A) In teams of two, take 15 minutes to…

Whoa. Last night’s WOD was surprisingly tough. At first look, it didn’t seem too difficult, but as things progressed, holy hell”¦ I was counting down the seconds until it was over. EMOM 10: 13 Unbroken Kettlebell swings (Any style) Rx: (70, 53) L2: (53, 35) L1: (35, 25) Beg: (30, 20) Ok, here’s how the WOD worked. For every minute on the minute (EMOM), the goal was to do 13 Kettlebell swings in a row…

Hi, guys! Hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday! Let’s get right to it! Breakfast Just like yesterday morning, I woke up craving My Favorite Breakfast Pancake, so I whipped up one and topped it with sliced strawberries and a big scoop of Teddie Peanut Butter. I also drank a homemade Peanut Butter Wonderful iced coffee with breakfast. Workout After breakfast, I headed to CrossFit for a workout. I almost didn’t go this morning because of…

The title of this morning’s post probably doesn’t mean much to you, but it means a lot to me. At CrossFit last night, I did my first all Level 2 (L2) workout!! Woohoo! Completing a Level 2 workout is huge deal for me because when I first started CrossFit, I could barely do a Level 1 workout. But, over time, I’ve gotten stronger and built up my endurance, so I’ve regularly moved into Level 1…

Today is one of those days when I want to eat everything in sight and nothing seems to satisfy my hunger. I’m not sure what’s up with my suddenly ravenous appetite, but I’m just going with it. Sometimes, my body is hungry, and I need to FEED it! Breakfast I started my day with a big bowl of “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats with a scoop of peanut butter. I ended up going back for a…
