Masters Graduation

In September of 2015 I started my first Master’s class at Walsh College. It was my first night class and the struggle was real. I was studying for my CPA exam during the day and attended class at night. Studying was life to say the least. At the end of 2016 I started working and…

Weekly Workouts 1/22-1/28

Weekly Workouts 1/22-1/28 This week I had a much needed deload. A deload is when you decrease your volume for a week so that your body can recover. Mine consisted of doing less sets. Runners often deload when they temporarily decrease their mileage. Deloads are beneficial because they prevent injury and burnout. I usually have…

How I Stay Motivated to Workout

Get into a routine. People always ask me how I can get up at 5am and go workout, but it’s such a routine to me now that I don’t think twice about it. I pack my car the night before so I have no excuse to stay in bed once my alarm goes off. Do…

Granny Turns The Big 9-0!

This weekend we celebrated my grandma’s 90th birthday with family and close friends. It’s amazing that she’s 90, you would never guess it! We went out to dinner at Court House Grille in Plymouth. It was so nice to see how happy she was surrounded by people she loves. Everyone at the restaurant couldn’t believe…

My main workout goal is to get stronger, so my training program reflects that. I’m on a progressive overload program that Jon formulated for me. Progressive overload is when you continue to increase the stress on the body over time. The first week of the program has three sets, and each consecutive week adds one…

First Michigan Visit of 2018

It wouldn’t be a weekend together without a flight delay. Jon’s flight was originally scheduled for 5:30pm, but he got delayed until around 9:30. We usually get delayed flying from NYC to Detroit since the airports have so much traffic. I don’t think either of us has had a flight where it wasn’t delayed at…

Guilt Free Nachos

One of my go-to meals is always Mexican, tortilla chips can always make my hanger go away. I enjoy eating healthy and have created a cleaner version to satisfy my nacho/taco craving. All of the ingredient below are from Trader Joe’s except for the Tostitos tortilla chips and taco seasoning. The blue corn tortilla chips from…

Weekly Workouts 1/8 – 1/14

One of the reasons that I love fitness is because there’s always something that I can improve on or achieve. I can always strive and push myself to lift a heavier weight, do one more rep, or run one more minute. I want to use this blog as a place I can track where I’m…

My First Post

I’ve had a desire to blog for a few years now. I stumbled upon a few blogs from Instagram accounts I followed and enjoyed reading about their lives, opinions, and style. I’ve always kept journals and love to write and document my thoughts. I wanted to create a blog to have a digital journal with…
