5 Things I’ve Learned As A P90X Newbie

As soon as January rolled around, I started really focusing on a consistent fitness routine with P90X3 and began learning how to adjust my eating habits. 2016 will forever be known as the year I realized my body does not allow me to eat whatever garbage I want and count the three block walk to my favorite bar as exercise. Let me say, it has been tricky.  I can’t believe how easy it is to type that sentence, when thinking of how hard it has been to adopt these new changes, but I’m choosing to believe it’s going well.

  • Why Yesterday Was My Last Half Marathon

    Do you ever have goals set for yourself that seem completely unreachable? Like they’re so out there that they’re just a dream? It’s not meant to happen, and you really don’t think that it will, but you go for it anyways? For me, that was running. At first it was running a mile. Then a 5k. Then a 10k. Then a half marathon. It seemed so unimaginable that I could run for more than 5 minutes. Honestly.

  • What It Actually Feels Like To Lose 25 Pounds

    My weight loss journey started a couple of years ago. It was July 1st, 2013 — a new month and a chance to be better for me. I stood in front of the mirror in a sports bra and underwear to take my before photo, just staring at myself. How did I get here? Who was I? I had just weighed in at my heaviest weight ever — about 50 lbs overweight, according to any doctor’s chart. I was sick and tired of seeing that number on the scale and wanted to really lose weight. Not for one week through a fad diet, though; for good.

  • Why I’m Quitting Paleo (After Nearly 4 Years)

    If you met me in 2012, it would take approximately 53 seconds before I started talking to you about paleo. At the time, I was convinced it changed my life, and I was eager to spread the word (paleo blog and all). Fast forward four years — in that time I changed cities, countries and jobs. I stopped running marathons and going to yoga, and instead opted for daily crossfit WODs at the crack of dawn. So much in my life had changed but my commitment to a diet of mostly meat and plants remained. READ MORE

  • Injuries, Rest Days & Guilt: A Letter To The Woman Who Said She Felt Worthless

    I was inspired to write this post after subbing a strength training class a few months ago. I was chatting with the ladies before class got started, and one woman came to me to say she had injured her shoulder, as well as her knee, and would be taking it easy during class that day. As she was explaining her injuries, tears started rolling down her face, and my heart broke listening to her story. She said she felt worthless since both injuries were on the same side of her body, and guilty because she hadn’t been able to work out as much as she “needed to” the past few weeks.
