One of my friends—she just happens to be my fittest friend—recently asked me for some workout motivation. She started a new job, so her workout routine changed from a group/class setting to working out mostly on her own. She’s usually the one who motivates ME, but I know how it goes. Life changes. Priorities change (i.e. babies). Hell, sometimes you just lose your fitness spark. I absolutely love exercise, and I’ve found myself there a number of…

It’s only two movements, but it’s definitely a challenge. I promise you’ll be a sweaty mess by the end! Ok, here I am in typical Tina mode juggling a smoothie, a bowl of…

Hey there! I’m popping in with a quick blog post that includes some awesome fashion finds from the week (aka SALES) + a full-body medicine ball + running workout. It involves a complex (3 movements = 1 rep), so it was a fun challenge mixed with some 800 meter runs. I did it yesterday – and, holy cow, I was a sweaty mess by the end! FYI: If you don’t have a medicine ball, you…

Good morning! I’m popping in with a quick blog post that includes some awesome fashion finds from the week (aka SALES) + a great upper body dumbbell workout that I’ve actually done twice now, and it’s left me quite sore the next day!

Hi, friends! I can’t believe we are already into the third week of October! Crazy, right? Time flies during this time of year, especially when we have so many fun activities on the calendar. Every weekend has been jam-packed with fall adventures – everything from apple picking to corn mazes. October is definitely one of my favorite months of the year. I also love, love, lovvvve the fall food scene! There are so many in-season items that I…

If you guys follow me on Instagram Stories, you’ve probably seen me post the WOD (aka “Workout of the Day”) from my CrossFit – and you might be thinking: What the heck does that mean?! I’m going to explain a recent workout that was “prescribed” and how to modify it so you can do it at home or another gym with just some dumbbells. Check out my video below!

Too much of a good thing can actually halt your progress physically. I remember the days when I exercised 6 or 7 days a week, and I would go ALL OUT during my workouts. I loved the feeling immediately after finishing a workout (I still do!), but, looking back, I now know I was most definitely overexercising. The photo below still makes me laugh. I was so pissed that my own husband “no-repped” me during…

Good morning! Happy Thursday! I’m back on the flax train after slacking last month. If you remember, I’ve done seed cycling for several months now, and it was working great. My periods were regular, my skin looked amazing, my mood was mostly steady, and I didn’t have too many PMS symptoms, except for night sweats, which I’m starting to think I will have for my entire life. (I get them right before my period when estrogen…

New year, new resolutions! For many of us this means eating right and upping our exercise game, which often means crowded gyms and possibly frustration if you can’t work out how and when you want to. Whomp whomp. January is most definitely a busy time of year for health clubs, but instead of getting upset about the crowded gym, here are 11 ways to make your workouts happen!

Good morning and a very happy December 1st to you! Let’s kick-off the month with a full-body workout that only requires a pair of dumbbells. The rep scheme is the classic 21-15-9 from CrossFit, which begins with 21 reps of each exercise (Thrusters, Plank Rows, Russian Twists) and then decreases the reps to 15 of each and then 9 reps of each. So, you’ll perform 21 Thrusters followed by 21 Plank Rows and 21 Russian…
