Weekly Workouts 7/8 – 7/15

Hi friends, hope you all had a great weekend! We had a nice and relaxing weekend and got some meal preps and cleaning done. We tried finding a couch but still haven’t had any luck. Any suggestions?? I had some great workouts this week. I deadlifted my personal record for deadlifts yesterday and it felt…

Weekly Workouts 7/1 – 7/8

Happy Monday! I’m writing this post from my new MacBook Pro! My old one would has been with me for eight years, so it was finally time to upgrade. We went to the Apple store this weekend and picked it up. The store was right by Central Park and was so crowded! It was a…

Weekly Workouts 6/25 – 7/1

This week was my last ever lift at Lifetime Fitness and I was quite sad, it’s been my favorite gym that I’ve belonged to. Jon and I both benched and had decent workouts. We were still recovering from the stomach bug and missed workouts so weren’t on our “A game”. Now that I’m healthy and…

What’s Up: July 2018

I’m going to start linking up with the first blogger I ever read, Shay Shull, for my What’s Up posts. Each month I’ll be answering the following questions: What I’m eating: Based on our freezer we only eat naan bread pizza, post workout smoothies, and ice cream. But seriously, Jon and I eat this naan…

Weekly Workouts 6/18 – 6/24

This week I ended up taking three off days from the gym instead of one. I had only one planned rest day, but the stomach bug had other plans for me. My workouts I did complete felt really good, maybe some time off will be a nice deload for me. I’m excited to get back…

Weekly Workouts 6/11 – 6/17

This week I got a squat personal record of 190 pounds! It surprisingly didn’t feel that hard at all. When I got my last PR it was a grinder for sure! I’ve gotten creative with my accessory movements and utilizing  a lot of exercises on the cable machine and with dumbbells. I must say, the…

Top Five Ab Exercises

The key to having defined abs is truly diet related. Unfortunately, you can’t just do some crunches and have a six pack. However, I do believe that it’s important to do ab exercises and have a strong core. I only directly train abs maybe once a week, but when I do compound lifts such as…

Weekly Workouts 6/4 – 6/10

Happy Monday friends! This week was my first round of morning workouts since the move. It feels great to be back into a routine, I definitely need that. We have a gym in the apartment, so it makes my morning workouts so much easier, and I can get an extra 45 minutes of sleep 🙌🏻….

Weekly Workouts 5/28 – 6/3

This was my first week working out in NYC and it went very well. A year ago I could barely bench 115# for one rep, and this week I got three reps with 115#. I’ve consistently been on a program the past year with a goal of getting stronger. I held the vision of being…

Weekly Workouts 5/21 – 5/27

This week was my last workout at Lifetime Fitness! I had a great last workout there. There is an apartment gym that I’m using and has mostly everything I need. One day we will join an Equinox gym once we get settled and live closer to one. They are pretty equivalent to Lifetime, but maybe…
