Good morning! How was your weekend? Ready for the week ahead? Here’s a little Monday Motivation for ya! 🙂 So, I’ve been thinking about motivation lately. Check out the video below. What are your thoughts on willpower? Anything that has helped and/or changed your thinking or habits?  The quote below is EVERYTHING; it’s constant motivation for how I live my life: Lifestyle changes are all about what you do – day in and day out,…

Good morning! It’s that time of year again when we’re inspired and excited to get fit. But 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 one of the workouts below to keep you out of an exercise rut! And (semi-related) tech tees are just $9 at Target right now!

Guys, this summer was a total shitshow whirlwind. Between moving, traveling, working/not sleeping, fun and adventures, I felt like I had zero time to do anything else, which meant a lot of my usual healthy habits fell by the wayside. I wasn’t eating well (i.e. tater tots + peanut M&Ms for dinner) or working out (I averaged 2-3 sweat sessions per work) and, because of this, I felt so darn lazy. I’m usually a motivated, go-go-go-type of person, but…

Working out day after day can sometimes feel like a chore, right? Yet there are some people who seem like they almost never skip a workout. How do they do it? I asked some of my favorite health and fitness bloggers about what keeps them motivated and consistent with their workouts, and here’s what they had to say! Monica Olivas * Run Eat Repeat I think finding an exercise routine or class you LOVE is…

Good morning and happy Friday! Here’s another fabulous pug costume to add to my collection of funny Halloween pug costumes! Thanks, Marrisa! I love the little hat. So cute! Haha! [source] Breakfast This morning, I couldn’t decide what I wanted for breakfast. I had a craving for something cool and creamy, but I also wanted some maple peanut butter. In the end, I had a little bit of everything: Greek yogurt with Paleo granola, a…

Happy 2013!!! How was your New Year’s Eve? Mine was a ton of FUN! Mal and I went to a NYE celebration at a local bar that our friend’s family rented out for the evening. CrossFit friends! Kerrie and me! Dance, dance, dance! I behaved myself and only drank two glasses of wine, plus a bunch of pineapple + soda waters, so I peed a million times at the bar last night, but I woke…

Happy National Regifting Day!! (There’s a national holiday for everything, isn’t there?) Did you know 41% of people have regifted an item? [source: couponcabin.com] [image source] I’m on the fence about regifting. Of course, it’s a very “green” way to give and if you can regift something to someone who might really like it, I don’t see the harm. But, at the same time, I’d feel weird giving someone a gift I haven’t actually bought…

As you probably know, I’m all about motivational quotes and mantras when it comes to fitness. (I actually have a whole Pinterest board devoted to them.) They inspire me to work hard and help me overcome challenges. With that said, here are some motivational fitness (and life) quotes from New Balance. They were printed on the floors of the New Balance offices, and I snapped photos of them when Team Off Balance visited before the…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! Are you ready to tackle the day? I sure am! Murphy, however, went back to bed after he ate his breakfast. What a lazy bum. I actually had a rough night of sleep last night, so I woke up groggy and not super psyched to start the day. Working from home and making my own schedule, I could sleep the day away, but I almost always get up with my…

I think I’m feeling better this afternoon. I’m far from well, but things aren’t getting worse for once! Hey, I’ll take it. Lunch Lunch was sliced turkey on a toasted gluten-free bagel with sweet potato wedges on the side. This lunch tasted great and didn’t give me any issues. Awesome. Snack A little while later, I snacked on a NRG Bar, which was made with all sorts of whole grains, which didn’t seem to upset my…
