What’s Up: September 2018

Is it just me or did August go by in the blink of an eye?? I had a busy month filled with work, but I’m excited for September and fall! A year ago this weekend was actually my first time visiting Jon in NYC for Labor Day, what a great year it’s been. On to my…

NYC – Hudson Yards Apartment Tour

I’ve been wanting to post an apartment tour for some time now, but our apartment was never ready.  We didn’t know where we were going to live (if we were moving/staying) until late July, so we didn’t want to buy new furniture and then risk it being damaged in a move. Now that we know…

Weekly Workouts 8/20 – 8/26

Happy Monday! I had a busy weekend of work and packing up the apartment for our big move on Friday!! There’s a lot going on right now, but I still keep working out a priority, and that’s keeping me sane! On Saturday I was exhausted after working all day. I decided to go to the…

Top 5 Leg Exercises

Today I’m sharing my top 5 leg exercises with you all! I personally love training legs and these exercises are a staple in my leg workouts.

Copy Cat: CHOPT Spicy Santorini Salad

I’m not sure about you guys, but I always order the same things at restaurants and never order anything new.  One thing that I’ve been loving and ordering a lot lately is the Spicy Santorini Salad from CHOPT. It is filled with lots of trendy, nutritious foods such as chicken, quinoa, kale, quinoa, and feta….

Weekly Workouts 8/5 – 8/12

Happy Monday! Now that busy season at work is in full effect I’m making it a goal to keep my workouts a priority. Working out keeps me happy and sane, and I can’t sacrifice my health and wellness for work. On that note, I have decreased my workouts from 6 to 5. Tax season is…

Lyssy’s Eats: Asuka Sushi

Jon and I went out to sushi for my 25th birthday dinner, and it did not disappoint! We went to Asuka Sushi in Chelsea and it was delicious! It was also reasonably priced (similar to what we would pay in Michigan) and had a large selection. We started off with some drinks (we were also…
