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…

Guilt Free: Protein and Antioxidant Packed Salad

I love salads because they’re usually pretty lite and there’s such a variety of different kinds. I always add salmon or chicken to my salad to get some protein. I like to make sure my salad is packed with protein and micronutrients so that I get all of the health benefits. Some salads can sound…

Lyssy’s Eats: Kona Grill

Kona Grill is one of my favorite restaurants because it has two of my favorite things: salmon and sushi. Whenever I go there I order the same appetizer and then always have a tough decision for my entree. The menu has a wide variety of options ranging from salads, sushi, chicken, and salmon. I’ve heard…

Weekly Workouts 5/7 -5/13

This week I was back into my routine and embracing my last few weeks at Lifetime. I started my new program and am loving it so far. It starts out light, so It was good for me to ease back into lifting after my vacation. I was so sore after my first two workouts back…

Last Days in Portland

Friday morning we didn’t have to leave early to hike, so I went out to breakfast by myself. It was a nice and quiet breakfast by myself, and the food was delicious! I got walnut bread, scrambled eggs, and potatoes. I was STUFFED afterwards. I went to Love Joy Café and it was so cute…

Portland Day 3

Day 3 was my favorite day of the trip and consisted of another full day of hiking. We picked up Kristen from the airport and headed to the South Falls Historic District for a waterfall filled hike. You can read about Day 1 and 2 here. This hike was my favorite because of all the…

Hi Friends! I’m so excited to be sharing my trip to Portland with you all. I have so much to share that I’m going to be doing this in three parts so keep staying tuned 🙂 Day 1 We were so excited to go to Portland to see Lauren. Kristen dropped us off at the…

Weekly Workouts 4/30 – 5/6

I’m finally back from Portland and had such a great vacation! It was nice to get out of my usual routine and see the other side of the country. I’ll have more on the vacation later this week for you to look forward to. This week’s workouts were a little different (ok, a lot different!)…

What’s Up: May

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: I’ve been on a smoothie kick lately. You can check out my favorite recipe here. What I’m reminiscing about: how much fun I’ve had with…

Guilt Free: Chocolate Peanut Butter Oats

I absolutely love eating  oats for breakfast. They’re an excellent carb source and keep me full all morning long. I usually eat microwaveable packets because they’re so convenient, but they can include unnecessary sugar (this is why they taste so good). This recipe that Jon created has no added sugar because of the sweetener, and tastes almost like you’re eating dessert. The PB2…

Weekly Workouts: 4/23 – 4/29

My workouts are always a little all over the place when I travel. I’m switching to a new program when I come back from Portland, so I didn’t follow my program to the T this week. I was a little distracted and unmotivated during my workouts during the week, but that’s a normal thing to…

A Weekend in NYC

I finally made it back to NYC for the first time since my Valentine’s Day Weekend. I planned this trip to give me something to look forward to during busy season. I took off Friday and then flew out at 1:45pm. My flight out was so easy and I didn’t have any delays. I worked…
