Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! Before we get into the “meat” (is that weird?) of this blog post, I have two quick announcements for ya… 1. Today is the FINAL day to save 15% at Beautycounter. If you’ve wanted to try the Overnight Resurfacing Peel or Charcoal Mask, now is the time to do so! Or if you’re already a customer, be sure to stock up on your favorites. There might not be another…

Hi, guys! I’m a little behind on “live” blogging, but I wanted to share this post since I get questions ALL the time about how I count macros on the weekends. And, truthfully, I typically take breaks from tracking on Fridays and Saturdays (sometimes Sundays too), but I still “game plan” my food choices – just so I don’t go totally off the rails. Not that there’s anything wrong with letting loose every once in…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! #mondaymotivation My favorite kind of workouts are ones that are quick and dirty, which means they’re high-intensity and efficient. I make the most of my time and finish the workout feeling like I really challenged myself. When I’m short on time, these types of workouts are definitely my go-to for a heart-pumping, full-body sweat session. That said, here are TWO high-intensity (and FUN!) kettlebell workouts (one of which incorporates running) that can be done…

Good morning! I hope you’re ready for an awesome, high-intensity sweat session because I have just the workout for you! It’s a running workout that doesn’t require any equipment, so you can do it just about anywhere, which means it’s perfect for the holiday season, especially if you’re traveling to visit family.

My friends at Brooks recently offered to send the special guy in my life a full new running outfit since he’s a huge part of my “support system” when it comes to my running.

Good morning and very happy Monday to you! Here’s a full body running workout to kick your week off on the right foot! All you need for this workout is a weighted ball, such as a slam ball, medicine ball, or Xerball, and some space (or treadmill) to run. Wearing: Women’s Streaker Running Capris//Reebok ONE Series Tank//Reebok ZPrint//Bombas Socks (always)  If you’re unfamiliar with a Curtsy Squat, here is a great video tutorial. You can either perform 1o…

Good morning and happy FITNESS Friday to you! I have not ONE but TWO high-intensity running workouts that will challenge your entire body from head to toe. Try one today or this weekend and then put the other one on your calendar for next week. They’re both awesome workouts! As you probably remember, I love high-intensity running workouts that include a variety of strength movements. They keep both my mind and body engaged and they are a whole lot of fun. I swear, the time just flies…

Hello and happy Sunday to you! I just wanted to share the hotel workout that I did last week when I was in Los Angeles. It was definitely a fun one because it combined running with three different strength movements for a full body workout. I used a double grip medicine ball because that’s what the gym had on hand, but I think this workout would work really well with a kettlebell and treadmill. And, of course, you could totally do…

Good morning! I have a GREAT workout for you guys. It involves two of my favorite things– dumbbells and running— and it’s guaranteed to challenge you! Dumbbells instantly make a workout more challenging because they require so much more of your stabilizer muscles, which means you’re working even harder. And running… well, running is always tough, especially if you’re giving it your all!

Hello, hello! Right now, I’m out running. I’m either tackling 13 miles like a champ or cutting it short and running 8 miles. Both runs are my half marathon training plan this week, so I decided to see how my body feels before I decided how many mile I would run. Whatever distance I don’t do today will be saved for Saturday morning. A Saturday morning long run? I used to love them with Team…

Last week, not one, but two readers accused me of making “really hard” workouts, which apparently pushed them out of their comfort zone more than they expected. Mwhahahaha. I take that as a compliment! What can I say, I like challenging workouts! With that said, here are five of the toughest workouts I’ve created to date. You might remember the first four, but the fifth one is new. It’s a combination of a track workout…

Good morning! Happy Tuesday! I woke up bright and early to meet Kerrie for a track workout this morning. My half marathon training plan had a speed workout on it for today, so we decided to tackle it: 2 mi up, 2 x 200m (:45), 2 x 800 (3:40), 1 x 1600 (8:10) –> full recovery between sets, 1 mi down Unfortunately, I didn’t last very long. I only made it through the 200s before my…
