Giving new meaning to bodyweight workouts

My man squats ME ass to grass! He also uses me as a human barbell. And this is why we’re together. In other news…got my co-op share today. Here are some crappy pictures of good produce. Let’s see what I come up with the next two weeks.     Read more…

My review of Jamie Eason’s Livefit program

A few months ago I mentioned that I was changing my workout routine. It’s usually good to switch things up, and I definitely learned a few things from it. At the time of the switch I was working out 4x a week doing an upper and lower body split. Cardio was usually Bodyrock or something […] Read more…

Hopeful for the Holidays

It seems the holidays can either bring out the best or the worst in people. Admittedly, I’ve been quite the Grinch. Ask me about Thanksgiving, and I’d roll my eyes and say it was a tribute to gluttony and genocide. And Christmas? More like Consume-mas. This year I’m trying to be less Grinch-y. I even […] Read more…

A post NOT about Thanksgiving.

Let’s see if I can crank this blog post out while my pits are still warm and sticky from caffeine-induced perspiration. Sorry, I just really felt the urge to share that. Anyway… Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the balancing act we all do in our lives. This isn’t meant as a complaint, but […] Read more…

Tomorrow is another day.

This weekend was a doozy. You see, David works at Whole Foods. And sometimes he brings home “goodies” (although I think it’d be more fitting to call them “badies.”) This week’s batch of evil temptation came in the form of cornbread. And not the dry, crumbly kind they used to sell in the school cafeteria. […] Read more…

I am competitive and crazy.

The other day I was doing squats at the gym. On the other side of the room a female trainer was also squatting. (Incidentally people have asked if we’re sisters because there is a slight resemblance, AND I saw her at the club I went to last night.) I immediately start sizing her up, looking […] Read more…

Do you ever workout naked?

Photo credit: Flickr | StanZim UPDATE! This was the first vlog I ever did and it’s hilariously bad. I will eventually replace it, but I’ll keep it here for now for lols sake. Please excuse me, I was a bit nervous! Also, as promised, here’s the link to the workout: The 480 Workout. (Some of […] Read more…

Are you a picky eater?

How many times have you liked a song a lot more the second or third or tenth time hearing it? What about movies? The first time I saw Juno I thought it was so overrated. (No 16 year old talks like that or is that cool.) Then the second time I saw it I wasn’t […] Read more…

11 things I’ve learned from MMA

I’m beat. Literally. I got home not too long ago from my mixed martial arts (MMA) self defense class. I go twice a week and we practice things like grappling (wrestling), striking, kicking, knife defense, judo (ugghhh) and ninjitsu. It’s been quite the learning experience. Which reminds me… 11 Things I’ve Learned from MMA. I’ve […] Read more…

Photos!

Is it better to publish informative posts less often, or personal fluff posts frequently? I guess I’ll aim for somewhere in the middle. I got my ass beat in my MMA self defense class today, and I was going to write about the things I’ve learned in that class during the past 8 months. But […] Read more…
