Exploring Boston: A Day in Cambridge

Happy November 1st! I hope you all had a great Halloween and are ready for all things Christmas now 🙂 On our last full day in Boston, we decided to go to Cambridge and see Harvard’s campus. Our first stop was Café Crema for some much needed coffee. I got a French Toast Latte that…

Jon’s Birthday in NYC!

Jon’s birthday was on a Monday (June 25th), so we decided to celebrate the weekend before. In the morning we met our friends and lifted with them. I did some deadlifts while Jon benched with his bros. We went to Insomnia Cookies afterwards because I was starting to get hangry! We got the peanut butter…

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…

Guilt Free: Black Bean Avocado Brownies

This recipe has been almost a year in the making. Last July Jon and I made these brownies and we’ve been talking about making them again ever since! These black bean brownies are great because they don’t have any added sugar or artificial ingredients. They are also full of healthy fat and fiber, and don’t contain gluten or dairy….

Our First Anniversary

Jon and I celebrated our one-year anniversary last Tuesday. He suggested that we make dinner together at the apartment so that we wouldn’t have to worry about other people sitting right on top of us.

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…

I moved to NYC!

Hi Friends! I’m officially Lyssy in the City! It’s been a busy last week trying to finish packing and seeing everyone before I left. It still seems so surreal that I’m really living here, I’m so used to being here for only a weekend. In February I asked my firm if I could transfer to…

Weekly Workouts 5/14-5/20

It’s been a busy week of packing, but I got all of my lifts in 😀I made sure to start my day off at the gym so that I wouldn’t get too tired and make an excuse not to go. This was my second week of the new program and it went really well. It’s…
